3/4 65% Willy's Wonderland (2021) It works because it's so goofy and so insane, and with Nicolas Cage behind it... it's over the top and fun. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

2/4 38% Cherry (2021) The Russo Brothers bite off an awful lot, and they masticate it, that's for sure. But I don't know if they chew it all enough to be fully digested. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

2/4 55% The United States vs. Billie Holiday (2021) In true Lee Daniels fashion, there's not a shred of humor or lightheartedness. It's all just deep, heavy hand-wringing emotion. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

3/4 25% Tom & Jerry (2020) It's a kids film... I respect it that it goes for the violence and crazy antics that Tom & Jerry have stood for. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

4/4 83% Freaky (2020) Excels at deconstructing the slasher genre while at the same time being a bona fide slasher movie. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

3/4 79% Greenland (2020) A bona fide disaster flick in the spirit of the modern disaster flick that was re-pioneered by Roland Emmerich. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

4/4 79% Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) It's just neat to watch something that's birght and colorful and silly. If there's any word that goes with this, that word is fun. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

3/4 96% Judas and the Black Messiah (2021) If this movie bothers you and the content of it bothers you, good. You should be challenging yourself. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

2/4 69% Land (2021) It is nothing more than an excuse for [Robing Wright] to act. Yes, she does a fine job acting in it, but there's nothing more to it. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2021
2/4 43% Caged (2021) The problem is it spends so much time dragging these things out that by the time you get to the resolution, you kinda just don't care one way or the other. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

1/4 25% Breakfast of Champions (1999) There's an amazingness to this train wreck... It makes every mistake you could possibly make in adapting a Kurt Vonnegut book. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

3/4 34% Earwig and the Witch (2021) They're not just hopping to a new platform. They're hopping to a new platform and they have to find their own look in that new platform, and they haven't yet. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2021
2/4 23% The Reckoning (2021) [Charlotte Kirk] needs more acting gravitas to bring to this than she did. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

1/4 47% The Little Things (2021) It has some interesting twists and turns, but the biggest problem is for a movie like this is the ending... The ending is completely unsatisfying. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

4/4 88% Supernova (2021) I would watch the two of these guys as actors deciding what they're going to eat at McDonalds. They are so good... It's just a joy to watch the two of them act. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Monster High: Ghouls Rule (2012) The story has the expected uplifting message of tolerance and friendship, and there's nothing too scary in it for pretty much anyone who can make it through an episode of "Scooby-Doo." - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 29, 2020
3.5/5 No Score Yet Minutemen (2008) The film is far less formulaic than what I've seen before, and that's great to watch. Add to the fact that it appeals to boys, and I found this to be a real winner. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2019
2.5/5 No Score Yet Twitches Too (2007) Tia and Tamera Mowry are definitely likable on screen, and they are still working well as twin actors, which is more than I can say for the Olsen twins. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

1/5 25% Woodshock (2017) I may be the luddite in the room for this reason, but the bottom line is that it ended with a boring chore of a movie to watch. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

C 9% Shutter (2008) Consider this movie to be almost as good as The Eye but with less of a coherent story. - Film School Rejects EDIT

3/5 76% 13 Minutes (Elser) (2017) We need a stark reminder of what evil can come of this, and the risks that the average person takes - and should take - to fight against the attempt to raise this power again. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT

3/5 69% Free Fire (2017) less of a plot-driven piece and more of a collision of wild characters and how they interact (often violently) with each other - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
4/5 84% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Rogue One is like its heroes. It is flawed in some ways, but it's still well worth the wait. - Fat Guys at the Movies EDIT
