4/10 () Jackie K. Cooper Two incompatible lead actors weigh down this movie which is basically talk, talk and more talk. EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2019
8/10 Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable (2018) Jackie K. Cooper A touching and inspiring film. Bethany Hamilton shows here she lives up to all the hype. She is heroic and this documentary captures it perfectly. EDIT

4/10 Stuber (2019) Jackie K. Cooper "Stuber" is stupid in its handling of a simple buddy movie. There is no chemistry, the supporting characters are merely blips on the screen, and the plot - well there really is no plot. EDIT

7/10 Maiden (2018) Jackie K. Cooper This documentary celebrates the fearless women of the late 1980's who were up for the challenge to sail around the world. We are given a view of them then and of them now and they are impressive and amazing in both time frames. EDIT

6/10 Crawl (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A hoot and a holler type of monster movie with the deadliest crocodiles since "Peter Pan." Just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. EDIT

8/10 La chute de l'empire Américain (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Liked everything abut this movie from its crafty actors to its crazy plot. Maripier Morin and Alexandre Landry are stars of tomorrow. EDIT

4/10 Lying and Stealing (2019) Jackie K. Cooper What a waste of handsome people. These lead actors deserve so much better movies than a reheated crime caper. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
5/10 Midsommar (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Good actors create listless characters as the plot fiddles while the barn burns. EDIT

4/10 () Jackie K. Cooper This story of a loner didn't impress me much while watching it, but I have to say the plot has lingered in my mind. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
6/10 Skin in the Game (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Based on true events this movie held my attention all the way through till the end. Erica Ash gives a dynamic performance. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
6/10 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Jackie K. Cooper I didn't buy in to all the plot twists and turns but Tom Holland makes a believable high school Spiderman. Special effects were good but I could have skipped Jake Gyllenhaal and wished for more Marisa Tomei and Jon Favreau EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
8/10 Wild Rose (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Don't call Jessie Buckley a "star of tomorrow"; she is a "star of today". Her blazing performance sets "Wild Rose" on fire. One of the year's best. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2019
6/10 Ophelia (2018) Jackie K. Cooper We all know the basic plot of "Hamlet" but this movie gives you the rest of the story. Ridley, Watts and Owen stand out in a solid cast. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2019
6/10 Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Jackie K. Cooper The characters are appealing even if they are drop dead dumb about supernatural things. Lots of easy to handle scares but no gore, and that's a good thing. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2019
5/10 The Dead Don't Die (2019) Jackie K. Cooper All the elements are there for a fun zombie spoof, but it plods along as much as its undead. Lining up a star studded cast does not indicate entertainment value. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
5/10 Cold Blood (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Good acting by Jean Reno, and the scenery is amazing even if it is the Ukraine filling in for Washington state. But this crime thriller has no thrills or chills. The plot never heats up. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
6/10 Yesterday (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Great soundtrack and unique story but the usual Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis magic doesn't strike. Entertaining but not what it should have been. EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2019
4/10 Ghost Light (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Roger Bart has this movie on his acting shoulders and it just becomes to much for him to handle. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
6/10 Anna (2019) Jackie K. Cooper It is all implausible, illogical and impossible but somehow the riveting action scenes make you not care. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
4/10 Child's Play (2019) Jackie K. Cooper I preferred Chucky being demon possessed rather than a computer glitch - and bring back Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
5/10 Murder Mystery (2019) Jackie K. Cooper The Aniston/Sandler spark we have seen before is somehow missing in this pedestrian dramedy. You expect more but you get less. EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2019
4/10 Euphoria (2017) Jackie K. Cooper To die or not to die that is the question, And though it is well acted the whole thing is pretty depressing EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2019
8/10 Toy Story 4 (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Everything old is new again in this refreshing threequel. Plus you get just enough new characters to add to the fun. Woody and Bo - who knew! EDIT
Posted Jun 26, 2019
7/10 Plus One (2019) Jackie K. Cooper You need to see this movie. The two lead performances are star making and the chemistry between the audience and everyone in this movie is huge. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2019
6/10 Hampstead (2017) Jackie K. Cooper Diane Keaton still looks like Annie Hall, a little older and a little wiser. Pairing her with the grizzled but appealing Brendan Gleeson is a plus. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2019
5/10 Shaft (2019) Jackie K. Cooper The third time is not the charm. When Richard Roundtree finally arrives on the scene it is too little too late. BUT the "Shaft" theme music still is great. EDIT
Posted Jun 20, 2019
7/10 Late Night (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A dramady that delivers sound entertainment by presenting characters for which the audience cares. Thompson and Kaling mix well together and spark each other's performances. EDIT
Posted Jun 18, 2019
7/10 American Woman (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Sienna Miller gives a first rate performance as a woman coping with the stresses of life over a couple of decades. The intensity of the plot never lets you drift away. EDIT
Posted Jun 18, 2019
5/10 Men in Black: International (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Oh for the days of Tommy Lee and Will. Hemsworth and Thomson do not generate the chemistry or comedy necessary for a successful reboot of this series. EDIT
Posted Jun 18, 2019
5/10 Project Ithaca (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A somewhat interesting sci-fi film that has better acting and script than you might expect. Bodes well for the cast and crews future potential. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2019
5/10 The Tomorrow Man (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A story about romance in the golden years that is fairly sweet and touching until the stupid ending. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2019
5/10 The Outsider (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A gritty western which holds your attention but never completely draws you into its story of revenge. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2019
8/10 The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) Jackie K. Cooper An almost perfect animated film. Heart warming characters (especially Cleo), an interest8ing plot, no heavy messages and a feel good wrap up. what's not to like! EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2019
7/10 Katie Says Goodbye (2016) Jackie K. Cooper Olivia Cooke gives a star making performance in this bittersweet story of one determined young woman. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2019
6/10 Rocketman (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Unique story with great musical numbers. Just wish it could have captured Elton's "Specialness". EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2019
6/10 Dark Phoenix (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Just what you would expect from an "X-Men movie - interesting characters, great special effects and a world threatening plot. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2019
6/10 Framing John DeLorean (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Everything about this documentary/scripted movie/ behind the scenes story says it shouldn't work, but it does. Mainly this is because John DeLorean's life was American innovator mixed with Greek tragedy. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
6/10 Papi chulo (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Matt Bomer shows just how talented he is as the lead character in this character driven movie. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
6/10 () Jackie K. Cooper It takes an actress of unique talent, like Octavia Spencer, to make a story full of holes as entertaining as this one is. She holds it together while everything around her is falling apart. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
5/10 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Jackie K. Cooper It is all one monster mash with humans running around hysterically while spouting lines in no discernible plot. How in the world did Kyle Chandler, V]era Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown end up in this mess! EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
4/10 Stuck (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Heather Matarazzo is "stuck" as an unappealing character in an unappealing film. She deserves better and so do we all. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
3/10 Booksmart (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A muddled message delivered in a film that is basically flat as far as comedy is concerned. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
5/10 Domino (2019) Jackie K. Cooper It was hard to get into the characters, and the plot was confusing by half. Still with Brian De Palma listed as director I was intrigued. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
6/10 Brightburn (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Here's how the other half lives - a boy with superpowers who seems up to no good. Good acting and some really creepy scenes held my interest EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
6/10 Ladies in Black (2018) Jackie K. Cooper This story of four women who work at a huge department store in Australia entertains due to Bruce Beresford's direction, the talent of Julia Ormond and the beauty of Rachel Taylor (looking like a young Grace Kelly). EDIT
Posted May 29, 2019
5/10 Extracurricular Activities (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Teens vs parents with a twist. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2019
6/10 Aladdin (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Good enough to entertain the kids but the movie is more message than magic. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2019
7/10 A Dog's Journey (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Warmhearted story about a reincarnated dog through several lives. And let's hear it for the dog actors, these guys are award worthy. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
7/10 Trial by Fire (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Excellent performances by Laura Dern and Jack O'Connell lend credence to this message movie. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
3/10 The Sun Is Also a Star (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Relatively unknown actors defeated by a ridiculous script full of inane coincidences. Sappy to the nth degree. EDIT
