Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Kristian Harloff Way safer, no doubt...the whole trilogy has been a disaster...start-to-finish, it did not happen, that's just so clear...but this is rewatchabale, more fun than Last Jedi, and it plays off nostalgia... EDIT

4.5/5 Uncut Gems (2019) Kristian Harloff A well-written film, and one of the best crime films I've seen in a while. They take a lot of the tropes you expect and flip them on your head. EDIT

4.3/5 Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) Kristian Harloff The writing's so good. I love the way Tarantino shoots...I've only got one more of these things. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2019
3/5 Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) Mark Ellis Barely enough qualities to warrant that "fresh," to cross the Mendoza Line... EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2019

Posted Jul 19, 2019
4/5 The Lion King (2019) Kristian Harloff [The film] is gorgeous. It looks amazing. It sounds great. The performances are great. [But] it's the same movie. There's nothing new. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
4.75/5 The Lion King (2019) Mark Ellis [The Lion King] gives you the same emotional tinges that I felt watching [the original], and that I think is a credit to the film. EDIT

Posted Jul 1, 2019
3.4/5 Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Mark Ellis There's a lot to enjoy if you're into the Conjuring Universe...did I lose any sleep? No, it didn't really feel like that. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
2.5/5 Men in Black: International (2019) Kristian Harloff The aliens are barely there...the villains are not effective...because of the script, the chemistry is just not there. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2019

Posted Jun 14, 2019

Posted May 31, 2019
3.75/5 Aladdin (2019) Kristian Harloff A feel-good movie, it hits a lot of the moments from the original and still expands off it a bit. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019

Posted Apr 26, 2019
2.75/5 The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Mark Ellis It feels packaged, processed, and not accurate to the tales that we were told as a kid... EDIT
Posted Apr 26, 2019

Posted Apr 12, 2019

Posted Mar 29, 2019

Posted Mar 29, 2019
3.75/5 Shazam! (2019) Mark Ellis They did what they set out to do. Shazam is a fun kind of side-note in where we're going in DC...get excited if you're a DC fan. EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2019
4/5 Shazam! (2019) Kristian Harloff It's balancing out with Man of Steel for my favorite DC movie at this moment...for the most part, I was in from start to finish. EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2019
3.5/5 Us (2019) Kristian Harloff Peele is trying to do something else...was it better than Get Out? I didn't think so. But he doesn't have to do the same movie every time... EDIT
Posted Mar 22, 2019
3.75/5 Captain Marvel (2019) Mark Ellis I liked a lot of this movie, and there's so much potential...the writing was the weakest part of the movie, but especially by the second half, things smooth out. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2019
