Biography:
My name is Sean Chandler and I've always loved to talk movies! For years I was the guy commenting on other people's movie reviews and franchise rankings. Not just because I had my own opinions, but because I wanted to talk movies with other people. I've always thought that movies matter, and I love to hear other people share their experiences with films, whether I agree with them or not. Every week I post: movie reviews, movie rankings, top-10 lists.

B+ 57% The Lion King (2019) The movie exists at Jon Faverau's photorealistic cover of The Lion King. It's the same song. It's the same arrangement. Just sung by someone else. But sung very well. The novelty of seeing this story brought to life in this new format worked for me. - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

B+ 70% Triple Threat (2019) This movie isn't going to win over non-genre fans. But if you are a martial arts fan, you got to check it out. Though, it's not a classic. - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

C+ 94% Us (2019) This film was incredibly frustrating and disappointing for me. In its efforts to try and transcend the horror-thriller genre brought the whole thing down for me. But I know a lot of people loved it. - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

B 100% Penguin Highway (2019) I enjoyed it more than Spirited Away, because it's more straight-forward. This one is weird, but it's also grounded to human emotions. - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

B+ 90% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) This is a movie that absolutely delivers on the most important thing that it must deliver on: the action. But on the story level, this is probably the weakest of the stories in this franchise. - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

C 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) It's not a total disaster. It's a mixed bag from beginning to end. There's nothing particularly great about it. Even in its good ideas, it's tinged with mediocrity. - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

B 59% The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) This is a movie that delivered the experience it was supposed to deliver. It's not trying to be the best animated film of the year. It is nice, light-hearted entertainment. - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

B 22% Men in Black International (2019) This is a well-made addition to the franchise with likable, but generic, leads that probably needed to take a few more risks and add spice in the mix. I had fun with it! - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

A 98% Toy Story 4 (2019) This franchise has not skipped a single beat. Honestly, the franchise is as good, and in someways, better than it ever has been before. You don't need to be nervous. This is another heartwarming, very funny, Pixar classic. - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

B- 31% Shaft (2019) This is a movie that is for a very specific type of person that likes throwback action movies. I like throwback action movies! So, I had fun with it. It did make me laugh. I do enjoy seeing Samuel L. Jackson cranked up to 11. - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

B 64% Child's Play (2019) On its own merits, this is a fun and creepy slasher film with some gnarly kills and some tonal issues here and there. But, if you are a Child's Play purist, you're probably going to hate this movie. But, I'm not a purist! - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT

B 65% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) It was a nice, somewhat lighter, addition to the franchise that I think was hurt a good bit by one character who I don't think was handled too well. - Sean Chandler Talks About EDIT
