3/4 58% Aladdin (2019) Naomi Scott... is particularly effective as Princess Jasmine and the special effects are consistently watchable. Will Smith seems to be having a good time, but he won't make anyone forget about Robin Williams. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

2/4 89% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) More tedious than terrific...there are no surprises in the plot, no characterizations, and no real reasons to invest your time or money in seeing more of the same. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

2/4 15% The Hustle (2019) Rebel Wilson relies far too much on gross-out humor and tiresome fat jokes and Anne Hathaway's elegant hauteur is largely wasted on this mercilessly mediocre film. Don't be scammed by THE HUSTLE. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

3/4 90% Wild Nights with Emily (2019) Molly Shannon brings life, spark and humor to the portrayal of Emily Dickinson...If you loved the poet, you'll be intrigued by the film. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

1.5/4 45% Little (2019) The pacing is poky and the nearly 2-hour runtime feels padded. And unlike the original BIG, the main character learns absolutely nothing from the time she spends inside a 13-year-old body. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

2.5/4 90% Shazam! (2019) Despite elements that are both corny and confusing, SHAZAM! has real heart with likable characters experiencing real teenage problems--even in the body of a superhero. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

3/4 47% Dumbo (2019) The movie is visually spectacular and the computer generated beasts--particularly Dumbo--are unforgettably endearing. DUMBO is nearly 2 hours of surprisingly effective enchantment. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

2.5/4 94% Us (2019) What starts out as creepy and spell-binding deteriorates into a silly, generic zombie movie before it's partially redeemed by an unforgettably shocking ending. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

3.5/4 91% Gloria Bell (2019) Entirely compelling...Julianne Moore is a real contender for another Oscar nomination. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

2/4 78% Captain Marvel (2019) It's hard to see that anyone will think this is one of the better entries into the Marvel universe. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

3/4 91% How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) It's gorgeous to look at with rich, imaginative and captivating animation. If the stories and characters are confusing and superficial, it's still great fun to watch. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

2.5/4 68% Isn't It Romantic (2019) You know it's not very good-and it isn't-but it's relentlessly adequate and surprisingly entertaining. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

3/4 85% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) The animation isn't quite as crisp or imaginative, and the plot is just about impossible to follow, but there are so many clever references and so many dazzling stars, how can you not enjoy it? - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

3.5/4 100% They Shall Not Grow Old (2019) I don't think we'll ever come closer to understanding and experiencing what ordinary fighting men went through in this global conflict. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

1.5/4 19% Serenity (2019) The only mystery about this misbegotten mess is how writer/director Steven Knight got so many distinguished actors to participate in it. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

0/4 38% Glass (2019) Though it's intended as a follow-up to UNBREAKABLE, this one has earned the title 'Unbearable' - deserving of the coveted, rarely awarded distinction of Zero Stars. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

3/4 40% The Upside (2019) The emotional manipulation is sometimes heavy-handed...but the interaction between the two leads will appeal to a very broad audience. The film's not a classic, but you'll probably feel better when you leave the theater than when you came in. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

2.5/4 79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) A pale reflection of the original. - The Michael Medved Show EDIT

2/4 13% Town & Country (2000) People we're supposed to care about come across like Marxist cartoons of the idle rich. - Medvedia EDIT
