4/10 The Rhythm Section (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Blake Lively turns deadly as she plays a hitwoman. She's not believable in this role and neither is this movie. EDIT

3/10 Gretel & Hansel (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Hits all the D's - dark, dreary and dull. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
4/10 Olympic Dreams (2019) Jackie K. Cooper The backstage look at the Olympics is great; the seemingly ad libbed script not so much. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
6/10 Assassin 33 A.D. (2020) Jackie K. Cooper A mash-up of science fiction with a faith based film - never gonna happen. But with this movie it did, and for some unqualifiable reason it works. EDIT

3/10 The Turning (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Some very talented actors get bogged down in this mess of a movie. Somebody knows what its intentions were but that somebody is not me. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2020
7/10 The Gentlemen (2020) Jackie K. Cooper A lackluster performance by Matthew McConaughey can't dampen the fun and excitement of this "gangster" movie. Hugh Grant, Michelle Dockery and the rest of the cast fall right in step with Guy Ritchie's wild romp of a ride. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
7/10 The Aeronauts (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Interesting based on true events story is played against a visually impressive backdrop. But the necessary chemistry between Redmayne and Jones is lacking in this movie. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
6/10 The Song of Names (2019) Jackie K. Cooper The movie is entertaining but not as momentous as the actors and subject matter would indicate. Young actors Gerran Howell and Jonah Hauer-King are standouts. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2020
6/10 The Garden Left Behind (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A direct view of the life of a transgender woman trying to solve her life story and all the problems surrounding it. Sometimes it seems too much drama is being crammed into one movie but the overall effect is striking. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2020
4/10 Dolittle (2020) Jackie K. Cooper How could the makers of 'Dolittle' do so little to make this family film have a spark of entertainment value. Iron Man comes across as a tin man with no heart and no soul as well as very little wit EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2020
6/10 Bad Boys for Life (2020) Jackie K. Cooper This movie is titled "bad boys" (plural) but is really Will Smith's movie - and it will do a lot to redeem his career. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2020
3/10 Like a Boss (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Crude and coarse, but worst of all it is not funny. Horribly scripted and terribly acted, this is another wound to Haddish's career. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
7/10 Three Christs (2017) Jackie K. Cooper An amazing ensemble of actors creates a compelling story based on true events. This movie deserves to be seen. EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2020
5/10 The Lighthouse (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A muddy, murky mess of a movie. I almost went crazy trying to figure out if the characters were crazy. Still Willem Dafoe can do no wrong when it comes to acting. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
6/10 Underwater (2020) Jackie K. Cooper The movie held my interest even with Kristen Stewart in the lead which is usually enough to turn me off any film. But though there was not enough back story or character development, Stewart made a pretty compelling heroine. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
8/10 1917 (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Worth seeing for the cinematography alone (thanks Roger Deakins); but also has a gripping storyline and solid acting performances by the two male leads. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
7/10 Parasite (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Unexpected, quirky, funny, horrific, dramatic - all of these things, but also just a bit tedious in parts. Not your average movie for sure. EDIT
Posted Jan 7, 2020
4/10 The Grudge (2020) Jackie K. Cooper A modicum of suspense and thrills can't wash away the errors in the script and in the performances. John Cho, Jacki Weaver, Demian Bichir - what are you doing in this movie? EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2020
6/10 The Two Popes (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A good movie about a long conversation between a present and future pope. Hopkins and Pryce are at the top of their game. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
8/10 Jojo Rabbit (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A cross between "Inglorious Bastards" and "The Diary of Anne Frank." This movie will sneak up on you and overwhelm you with its emotional core. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2020
7/10 Just Mercy (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Jamie Foxx is deservedly getting award buzz for this movie but it is Tim Blake Nelson who gives the most award worthy performance. EDIT
Posted Dec 31, 2019
3/10 Uncut Gems (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Lord knows I disliked this movie. My ears were ringing by the time I escaped. But I do have to hand it to Adam Sandler. He delivered an unexpected performance. EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2019
6/10 Little Women (2019) Jackie K. Cooper I liked this movie, but I wanted to love this movie. Ronan can do no wrong but Timothee Chalamet was miscast. Plus Greta Gerwig's back and forth story-telling drove me to distraction. EDIT
Posted Dec 25, 2019
5/10 Cats (2019) Jackie K. Cooper If you loved the play you will most probably love the movie. I abhorred the play so the movie didn't stand much of a chance. Still it was better than I expected (which wasn't much). EDIT
Posted Dec 25, 2019
6/10 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Wanted it to end on a magnificent note but it didn't. Still it was good entertainment. Maybe if they had followed George Lucas' notes it would have been epic. EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2019
8/10 Marriage Story (2019) Jackie K. Cooper This a movie so horrendously detailed about a divorce that at first you are rooting for him, then her, then him, and on and on. The movie will haunt you forever and will get better and better in your memory. EDIT
Posted Dec 19, 2019
6/10 Dark Waters (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Good story, Ruffalo is good; but too drawn out and man what a waste of Anne Hathaway's talent! EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2019
5/10 The Irishman (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Three hours of "Godfather" wannabe. Acting good as is scenery but the story is DOA. EDIT
Posted Dec 17, 2019
3/10 Red Handed (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Somewhere there was the germ of a good idea, but when they tried to make a movie out of it - it failed. EDIT
Posted Dec 15, 2019
5/10 The Farewell (2019) Jackie K. Cooper I kept waiting for something to happen in the plot of the movie - and then it was over. Oh yes, Awkwafina was very good. EDIT
Posted Dec 15, 2019
6/10 The Report (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A well acted but overall dry movie. Adam Driver scores again in creating a believable character in a hard to believe film. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2019
8/10 Richard Jewell (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Eastwood is back in top form. Paul Walter Hauser is the perfect blending of actor and role. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2019
6/10 Queen & Slim (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A truly disturbing movie which showcases the amazing talent of Daniel Kaluuya. Some flaws along the way but overall a good movie. EDIT
Posted Dec 11, 2019
6/10 Knives Out (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Most of the actors are just gussied up in cameo roles and the script is not half as clever as it thinks it is. Still you have highly watchable performances by Ana De Armas and Chris Evans. EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2019
6/10 21 Bridges (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Just your ordinary crime thriller - but hey it has Chadwick Boseman! EDIT
Posted Dec 4, 2019
7/10 A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Sorry to say but Mr. Rogers always annoyed me a little. Hanks is so good at portraying Rogers that he annoyed me too. Otherwise the movie is fine. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2019
9/10 Frozen II (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Disney works its magic again with a sequel that outperforms the original. The actors, the animation, and especially the songs - it is all amazing. I'm just waiting to hear 4 year olds break into "Into the Unknown"!!!!! EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
6/10 Mickey and the Bear (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Camila Morrone is a real find (cross between Ava Gardner and Ashley Judd) and James Badge Dale adds real balance. The movie is surprisingly impressive. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
5/10 Night Sweats (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Run of the mill movie about deadly disease, but there is a nice twist to it all. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
7/10 Official Secrets (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Timely story with a riveting performance by Keira Knightley. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
5/10 Charlie's Angels (2019) Jackie K. Cooper There is no camaraderie, no charisma, no excitement in this band of women. Bring back Lucy, Drew and Cameron. They are badly needed. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2019
6/10 The Good Liar (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Mirren and McKellen are always enjoyably watchable and they elevate a too twisty by half script. EDIT
Posted Nov 19, 2019
10/10 Ford v Ferrari (2019) Jackie K. Cooper This is the kind of movie they made when Paul Newman and Steve McQueen were at their peak. Bale and Damon prove even in today's Hollywood talent is talent and can't be denied. This is just a wonderful movie in too many ways to name. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2019
5/10 Frankie (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Great cast (Isabelle Huppert, Brendan Gleeson, Marisa Tomei equals a not so great movie. Lot of talent caught in a pointless story. EDIT
Posted Nov 15, 2019
7/10 Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Travis Fimmel leads a fresh cast of actors in this story of Australia/New Zealand fighters in Vietnam. Full of heroics with a personal touch. EDIT
Posted Nov 15, 2019
6/10 ANYA (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A quirky movie full of surprises. Good cast and Motell Gyn Foster is outstanding as the "evolutionary geneticist." Worth looking up. EDIT
Posted Nov 15, 2019
6/10 Midway (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Good historical recounting, and solid special effects highlight this movie. Where it fails is in giving audiences a personal story to latch onto. EDIT
Posted Nov 15, 2019
5/10 Last Christmas (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A "Notting Hill" "Love Actually" Sixth Sense" smashup that makes everything seem borrowed from a better film. EDIT
Posted Nov 15, 2019
7/10 Doctor Sleep (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A well made, enjoyable film - which doesn't always happen with a Stephen King book. Plus Rebecca Ferguson is terrific. EDIT
Posted Nov 11, 2019
4/10 Portal (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Another "let's go to a murder victim's house and see if there are any ghosts there" movie. Been there, done that - but send the t-shirt. EDIT
