8/10 Saint Judy (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Finally a role worthy of Michelle Monaghan's talent. This is the movie you wanted "On the Basis of Sex" to be. EDIT

7/10 Faith, Hope & Love (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A delightful faith based Romantic Comedy that dances away with your heart EDIT

8/10 Run the Race (2018) Jackie K. Cooper A great story combined with great performances makes "Run the Race" this year's "I Can Only Imagine." Tim Tebow knew what he was doing when he attached his name to this project. EDIT

5/10 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Jackie K. Cooper James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez give the film a great pedigree but Alita and all the other characters fade from thought when the movie fades to black. EDIT

5/10 Isn't It Romantic (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Rebel Wilson is a great supporting actress (e.g. all the "Pitch Perfect" movies) but as the star of this film her talent bends under the weight. She needs someone to share the spotlight. EDIT

4/10 Berlin, I Love You (2019) Jackie K. Cooper When you cast Keira Knightley and Helen Mirren in a movie and it fails you know where to place the blame. This anthology shreds their skills like confetti EDIT
Posted Feb 10, 2019
7/10 Cold Pursuit (2019) Jackie K. Cooper You have to go into it knowing it is a comedy or you will have to watch it a second time. It is one of Neesom's best and it is a howler. I just hope word of mouth gets people into the theater before it is gone. EDIT
Posted Feb 10, 2019
4/10 Serenity (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Starts off as an okay film noir but then the wheels come off. Looks like a poor effort to emulate Christopher Nolan. EDIT
Posted Jan 27, 2019
7/10 The Upside (2018) Jackie K. Cooper "The Intouchables" is a masterpiece; "The Upside" which is the American version is a very good movie. Hart surprises with his range, and Cranston as always delivers the goods. EDIT
Posted Jan 12, 2019
7/10 Mary Queen of Scots (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Ronan and Robbie are brilliant actors and bring the story of the dueling cousins to life. History buffs will savor every moment, and others will love the story of two of history's most powerful women. EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2018
5/10 Aquaman (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Jason Momoa is perfectly cast as the DC action hero but the movie is not as good as he is. Too long, too many repetitive fight scenes, and just a general dragginess to the whole thing. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2018
5/10 Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Just about everything that could go wrong with this sequel did. From its tuneless songs to its flat footed dancing, there is no "Mary Poppins" magic on view anywhere. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2018
6/10 Roma (2018) Jackie K. Cooper This is a film that is more fun to study than to be entertained by. It may be art but it is not great entertainment. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2018
8/10 The Mule (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Clint Eastwood tops off the year with a great stint as director and actor in this film. Plus he has surrounded himself with an outstanding supporting cast. Hold up on those award ballots, "The Mule" has arrived. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2018
6/10 Write When You Get Work (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Wittrock, Keller and Mortimer make this quirky film interesting. They bring a freshness to their roles and the screenplay isn't half bad either. EDIT
Posted Nov 30, 2018
8/10 Instant Family (2018) Jackie K. Cooper The casting could not be better, and the story will warm even the Grinch's heart. This one is in for the long run and should keep audiences happy until Santa comes to call. EDIT
Posted Nov 17, 2018
9/10 Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Rami Malek and the entire cast performances are pitch perfect. And then there is the power of the music! This is must see moviemaking at its best. EDIT
Posted Nov 3, 2018
7/10 Don't Go (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Strong performances by Stephen Dorff and Melissa George plus a haunting script make this a hunt out and see movie. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2018
7/10 Indivisible (2018) Jackie K. Cooper "Indivisible" is a faith based film that should entertain both believers and non-believers. Plus it has a cast that is a "Grey's Anatomy" reunion. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2018
4/10 London Fields (2015) Jackie K. Cooper Imagine Amber Heard and Johnny Depp in the same room. No, Well imagine them in the same movie. That is "London Fields," a movie that is not good but is quirky - and that might find it a semblance of an audience. EDIT
Posted Oct 27, 2018
7/10 Small Group (2018) Jackie K. Cooper An enjoyable faith based film from writer/director/co-star Matt Chastain. He hits just the right notes of drama combined with humor, and it should please the choir and others. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2018
7/10 Gosnell (2018) Jackie K. Cooper An amazing film about the arrest and trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell who performed abortions under the most dire and unsanitary conditions. Whether Pro-Life or Pro-Choice this movie should be seen. EDIT
Posted Oct 19, 2018
5/10 First Man (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Chazelle drained all of the emotion out of the film and replaced it with a barrage of close ups of Goslings face in a space helmet. What is left is a cold, mechanical movie that praises the space effort but dehumanizes the participants. EDIT
Posted Oct 13, 2018
5/10 Venom (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Hardy and Williams have talent to spare but it isn't on display in this walk through it movie. The only talent showing is the special effects crew. Venom is a B-grade Marvel hero. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2018
9/10 A Star Is Born (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Gaga is good but Bradley Cooper is definitely the star of "A Star Is Born". Also worthy of strong praise are Sam Elliott and Andrew Dice Clay. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2018
6/10 Passengers (2016) Jackie K. Cooper I scored it six out of 10. EDIT
Posted Oct 5, 2018
6/10 Assassin's Creed (2016) Jackie K. Cooper It's got a lot of action to it; it doesn't require a lot of acting so I don't know why they wanted to get a cast this big. EDIT
Posted Oct 5, 2018
7/10 Sing (2016) Jackie K. Cooper It's just amazing that [the cast] can act vocally and sing. EDIT
Posted Oct 5, 2018
7/10 La La Land (2016) Jackie K. Cooper It's a lot of music and dancing in the movie and [the stars] aren't great at either; they're okay but not great. EDIT
Posted Oct 5, 2018
4/10 Landline (2017) Jackie K. Cooper The cast is talented but they have all been led in the wrong direction. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2018
7/10 Little Women (2018) Jackie K. Cooper A modern day version of "Little Women" has to be one of the cheesiest ideas ever considered, but by golly they did it - and did it up right thanks to a fresh and talented cast. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2018
7/10 The Children Act (2017) Jackie K. Cooper A multi-layered film full of surprises. Emma Thompson shines as a woman in despair. EDIT
Posted Sep 20, 2018
6/10 Unbroken: Path to Redemption (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Good story about a great survivor. Still the movie needs some star power to lure in an audience. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2018
7/10 The Wife (2017) Jackie K. Cooper Glen Close shines in a role seemingly tailor made for her, She and Jonathan Pryce head the cast and that is double good fortune for the audiences. Only negative is the lack of motivation shown as to why the characters act as they do in their marriage. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2018
7/10 Beautifully Broken (2018) Jackie K. Cooper This is a faith based film based on true events. It delivers its message even if the performances are not all that strong. EDIT
Posted Sep 5, 2018
6/10 Kin (2018) Jackie K. Cooper What it lacks in dramatic impact it makes up being original. That's a real plus in these days of sequels, prequels, remakes and reboots. EDIT
Posted Aug 31, 2018
2/10 The Happytime Murders (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Melissa plus pornographic puppets equals a movie that doesn't please anyone. Remember friends don't let friends go see "The Happytime Murders". EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2018
6/10 Puzzle (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Slow in its telling but strong in its acting. "Puzzle" will appeal to movie purists but not the everyday moviegoer. EDIT
Posted Aug 17, 2018
7/10 Mission: Impossible -- Fallout (2018) Jackie K. Cooper A good movie but maybe one or two too many races, chases, etc. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2018
7/10 Woman Walks Ahead (2017) Jackie K. Cooper Jessica Chastain and Michael Greyeyes are perfect for their roles, as is the entire supporting cast. Add in great cinematography and musical score and you have a very entertaining film. EDIT
Posted Jul 21, 2018
8/10 Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018) Jackie K. Cooper A lot of humor and the entire movie is geared to a family audience. My favorite of the Marvel movies. It is MARVEL-ous! EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2018
8/10 Upgrade (2018) Jackie K. Cooper I was totally unprepared for how good this movie is. A great script that incorporates elements of "Death Wish" and "Robocop"as well as a spot on performance by Logan Marshall-Green. EDIT
Posted Jun 2, 2018
5/10 Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Jackie K. Cooper What in Alden Ehrenreich's resume convinced someone he could be the next Han Solo! Star making role that just fizzled. But long live Chewy. EDIT
Posted May 27, 2018
4/10 Deadpool 2 (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Everything new and fresh in the first is old and trite in the sequel. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2018
4/10 Tully (2018) Jackie K. Cooper "Tully" raises more questions than it answers and that is a good thing and a bad thing. Good because it provides food for discussion; bad because it makes the film confusing and disappointing. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2018
5/10 Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Too long, too dark, too confusing - and it should state up front it is part one of a "to be continued" movie. The humor helps you endure the overrunning length. EDIT
Posted Apr 27, 2018
7/10 The Miracle Season (2018) Jackie K. Cooper "The Miracle Season" is an inspiring family film but there is no draw except word of mouth. If those entertained spread the word then this little film could find its audience. EDIT
Posted Apr 13, 2018
8/10 A Quiet Place (2018) Jackie K. Cooper "A Quiet Place" is this year's "Get Out,"an implausible film that portends to be one of the year's best. EDIT
Posted Apr 7, 2018
4/10 Ready Player One (2018) Jackie K. Cooper Another disappointment from Steven Spielberg. He has come a long way down from the heart warming charm of "E T" to this cold and brassy virtual reality escapade. EDIT
Posted Mar 30, 2018
6/10 Unsane (2018) Jackie K. Cooper An interesting plot plus a sharp performance by Claire Foy elevates this movie above the average. EDIT
