5/10 Malcolm & Marie (2021) Jackie K. Cooper Two "rising" stars but little else to recommend the movie. If it is going to be all talk it had better be interesting talk. This is mediocre interesting! EDIT

6/10 To All the Boys: Always and Forever (2021) Jackie K. Cooper Its "High School Musical" without the music. Well acted it is a fitting close to this trilogy of movies. EDIT

5/10 The Mauritanian (2021) Jackie K. Cooper Based on a true story this potentially engrossing film fails over and over to capture the attention of the audience. EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2021
6/10 The Right One (2021) Jackie K. Cooper An okay semi-serious romcom that is elevated by a bright and sparkling performance by rising star Cleopatra Coleman EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2021
5/10 Son of the South (2021) Jackie K. Cooper Lucas Till is the main reason to watch this story. The total film is only mildly interesting in the way it is presented. EDIT
Posted Feb 12, 2021
8/10 The Dig (2021) Jackie K. Cooper An enjoyable movie movie. Good characters, good story and beautifully photographed. what's not to like! Carey Mulligan is perfectly cast. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2021
7/10 Palmer (2021) Jackie K. Cooper Justin Timberlake gives his best ever film performance but it is Juno Temple who steals the show. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2021
6/10 Supernova (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Firth and Tucci enact a tale of a couple facing dementia. Good performances by both but the emotional impact of the movie is less than expected. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2021
7/10 Bliss (2021) Jackie K. Cooper A touching but confusing film about mental illness and drugs. Owen Wilson is hard to take seriously but he finally ocnvinces us. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2021
7/10 Falling (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Viggo Mortensen directs Lance Henricksen to an award worthy performance. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2021
8/10 In Full Bloom (2019) Jackie K. Cooper The acting is solid in this tale of a post WWII boxing match, but it is the music and cinematography that make it great. EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2021
5/10 Redemption Day (2021) Jackie K. Cooper A lackluster tale of a man trying to rescue his wife from terrorists. Some exciting scenes but not enough. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2021
6/10 The Little Things (2021) Jackie K. Cooper The acting by Washington, Malek and Leto elevates a done and redone story. EDIT
Posted Jan 27, 2021
6/10 No Man's Land (2021) Jackie K. Cooper A well acted modern day western co-written by its leading man. EDIT
Posted Jan 25, 2021
7/10 Our Friend (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Mash together "Love Story", "Brian's Song" and "Terms of Endearment" and you have the mood of "Our Friend." Hard to watch but emotionally satisfying. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2021
5/10 A Stone in the Water (2019) Jackie K. Cooper Bonnie Bedelia is an actress of great talent but that talent is misused in this barely average melodrama. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2021
7/10 Minari (2020) Jackie K. Cooper An engrossing story of one family's dream. But it never touched me as emotionally as I wanted it to do. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2021
6/10 Shadow in the Cloud (2020) Jackie K. Cooper The wildest movie I have seen in a while. The movie is totally enjoyably bonkers! EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2021
4/10 The One You Feed (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Brings to mind the old song "Torn Between Two Lovers." This movie is complex and confusing but still intriguing. EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2021
6/10 Stars Fell on Alabama (2021) Jackie K. Cooper It is a predictable romcom but still a pleasure to watch. Plus we get to answer the question - whatever happened to Taylor Hicks? EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2021
6/10 The Marksman (2021) Jackie K. Cooper If you are a Liam Neeson fan then this one's for you. He is in action hero mode for the movie while showing a gentle side to a young kid he protects. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2021
5/10 The Midnight Sky (2020) Jackie K. Cooper George Clooney adds another title to his long list of meh movies. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2021
8/10 One Night in Miami (2020) Jackie K. Cooper What an auspicious directorial debut for Regina King! It is a talky movie but what they are talking about is so interesting and important. Stellar cast, stellar script, stellar direction. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2021
4/10 Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Jackie K. Cooper On the positive side there is Gal Gadot. On the negative side there is the script, the setting, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2021
7/10 Another Round (2020) Jackie K. Cooper You can argue about the message the movie is sending but you can't argue about the excellent performance by Mads Mikkelsen. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2020
8/10 Driveways (2019) Jackie K. Cooper One of Dennehy's best performances in one of his best movies. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2020
7/10 News of the World (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Helena Zengel steps into Natalie Wood's shoes and Tom Hanks plays the John Wayne role in this "sequel" to "The Searchers." EDIT
Posted Dec 24, 2020
7/10 Hunter Hunter (2020) Jackie K. Cooper This movie about a family living in a remote area of woods had me squirming even before the shock of the story hit. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2020
7/10 Soul (2020) Jackie K. Cooper A really good Pixar animated film but not as good as I expected. A little less tine with the "blobs" would have sufficed. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2020
5/10 Modern Persuasion (2020) Jackie K. Cooper A modern version of Jane Austen's Persuasion that isn't very modern and not at all persuadable. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2020
5/10 Greenland (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Just an average "end of the world" movie. Butler and Baccarin couldn't have any less chemistry if they tried. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2020
6/10 Fatale (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Hillary Swank does best in substantive films. This one is fun and twisty but not substantive. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2020
7/10 Wander Darkly (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Sienna Miller shines as a woman putting together pieces of memories that add up to a breathtaking solution. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2020
5/10 Holidate (2020) Jackie K. Cooper I liked every one of the actors in this film but I didn't like the quagmire of crudeness that permeated just about every scene. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2020
4/10 Sister of the Groom (2020) Jackie K. Cooper As much as I like Alicia Silverstone she could not save this confused and contrived comedy. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2020
6/10 Promising Young Woman (2020) Jackie K. Cooper The two leads, Mulligan and Burnham, seem miscast but the rest of the movie is fascinating. EDIT
Posted Dec 16, 2020
6/10 The Stand In (2020) Jackie K. Cooper In a role seemingly written for Melissa McCarthy, Drew Barrymore makes this film a fun two hours and reminds us of how much we enjoy her on screen. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2020
6/10 Mank (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Gary Oldman's performance makes the movie worth seeing. The script does not. EDIT
Posted Dec 11, 2020
5/10 Nomadland (2020) Jackie K. Cooper McDormand is great. The movie wanders in the worst sense of the word. EDIT
Posted Dec 11, 2020
8/10 Wild Mountain Thyme (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Blunt and Dornan make a winning combination in this sweet tale by John Patrick Shanley. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2020
9/10 The Prom (2020) Jackie K. Cooper It delivers it all - the music, the message and the overall celebration. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2020
6/10 Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020) Jackie K. Cooper Too much talk and not enough action, but the talents of Davis Bozeman and Turman are on full display. EDIT
Posted Dec 4, 2020
6/10 Let Them All Talk (2020) Jackie K. Cooper And they do talk on and on and on - but the acting is fresh and enjoyable. EDIT
Posted Dec 4, 2020
5/10 Love, Weddings & Other Disasters (2020) Jackie K. Cooper The movie starts out as a disaster but climbs up to average entertainment status. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2020
5/10 I'm Your Woman (2020) Jackie K. Cooper I am a Brosnahan fan but this is not a "Marvelous" movie. She's good but the movie never ties you to her character. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2020
7/10 Sound of Metal (2019) Jackie K. Cooper A fascinating story told in an entertaining way and highlighted by a brilliant acting performance by Riz Ahmed EDIT
Posted Nov 27, 2020
