Rating Title/Year Author
2/5 Angel Has Fallen (2019) Bill Watters The first one was fun, the second started with a bang and left with a whimper, this time they never get off the ground. Mixing in an addiction storyline and then forgetting it halfway through tells you all you need to know. EDIT

4/5 Good Boys (2019) Steph Cozza The kids have such a great chemistry together, they're all so funny and so unique in their own respective ways. EDIT
Posted Aug 19, 2019
5/5 Booksmart (2019) Steph Cozza It has a perfect balance of comedy and ridiculousness mixed with heart and compassion and growth. EDIT
Posted Aug 16, 2019
4/5 Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Steph Cozza The movie really captures the feeling and the tone of the original stories, there are some disturbing visuals... and the story was good, it was consistently suspenseful and terrifying. EDIT

4/5 Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) Steph Cozza Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio's chemistry is just amazing on screen. They were so entertaining, super funny, the dialogue is really witty. Probably the funniest Tarantino movie ever. EDIT

4.5/5 Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Bill Watters So many horror films these days are just thrillers set at night. Or a simple gore fest without little style. With a PG-13, del Toro and team deliver a Ghost Story style of horror and develop a great intro to the genre for a new generation (of all ages) EDIT

4.5/5 The Art of Self-Defense (2019) Steph Cozza It's very, very dark, but the balance of darkness and comedy is so great...this just nails it. EDIT
Posted Aug 9, 2019
2.5/5 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Bill Watters Hobbs & Shaw delivers on the type of film Fast & Furious fans love: cheesy action whose stars have a blast chewing up the sets. It's held back by playing in the spy genre where the John Wick's of the world have already moved the bar far downfield. EDIT

4.5/5 Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) Bill Watters It's as self-indulgent as Tarantino has ever been, but at the same time very much still at the top of his game. The only downside being constantly pulled away form a main storyline by knowing a major tragedy could happen at any time right next door. EDIT

2.5/5 Stuber (2019) Bill Watters Fresh by the thinnest of margins. It's fine, not good. Better served as a midweek Netflix watch than heading out to the theater. Saved by the fact that cast is clearly having a great time playing off of each other. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
4.5/5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Steph Cozza Far From Home sets up what comes next. It was probably the second-best Spider-Man movie EVER. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
5/5 Midsommar (2019) Steph Cozza I would watch this again, in fact, I need to watch it again. So many subtleties in this film... the performances from everyone were incredible. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
4/5 Midsommar (2019) Bill Watters Ari Aster is back with Midsommar, and his unique approach and vision to suspenseful horror that he started with Hereditary continues to evolve and for those receptive to his approach, improve. EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2019
4.5/5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Bill Watters The actors have settled into their characters and also grown in their performance chops, and the writers have found a more than serviceable balance between the humor of Homecoming and the gravitas of Avengers. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
3.5/5 Yesterday (2019) Bill Watters Yesterday is a charming and heartfelt love letter to The Beatles, and gently guides the magical wish-fulfillment genre of films into some slightly new territory. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
5/5 Toy Story 4 (2019) Steph Cozza I have no complaints. Cute, heart-warming with a beautiful message. EDIT
Posted Jun 21, 2019
4.5/5 Always Be My Maybe (2019) Steph Cozza Absolutely hilarious, in an unexpected way. A nearly perfect film. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
2.5/5 Men in Black: International (2019) Bill Watters Fresh but by the very leanest of margins. It's fun, lighthearted fare, but without the edge that made the 1st and 3rd installments so memorable. You'll have fun at the time, but you probably won't remember it by the next day. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
3.5/5 Rocketman (2019) Steph Cozza The whole first half of the movie is awesome, seeing his family dynamic and how he learned music...I would probably watch it again, but there were a lot of problems. The directing was great and the cinematography was beautiful. EDIT
Posted Jun 7, 2019
3/5 Aladdin (2019) Steph Cozza I loved the diversity of the cast, the costumes were so well done, and the music was amazing...but the movie didn't leave me feeling anything other than apathetic by the end. It wasn't terrible, I had a good time, but I will probably never watch it again. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
3.25/5 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Steph Cozza A slow, boring burn that leads up to some truly kickass, huge monster fights...there are a few fun Easter eggs in there...the writing was bad, but visually, the fight scenes were great. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
4/5 John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum (2019) Steph Cozza It was better than John Wick 2, still a super fun time and everything you want it to be if you're a fan of action movies, or Keanu Reeves, or dogs... EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
4/5 Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Steph Cozza It was exactly what I wanted it to be and everything it could have been...with movies like this, I just want to have fun. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2019
5/5 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Steph Cozza I cheered so hard. There are some scenes...prepare yourself. This movie made me feel whole. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2019
1/5 Hellboy (2019) Steph Cozza I'd rather be in hell than ever watch Hellboy again. EDIT
Posted Apr 19, 2019
5/5 Pet Sematary (2019) Steph Cozza I jumped out of my seat multiple times. The pacing was phenomenal. I had no complaints. EDIT
Posted Apr 5, 2019
5/5 Shazam! (2019) Steph Cozza The trailer did not do it justice. This is great. Just, so so great. This movie blew me away. EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2019
4.5/5 Us (2019) Steph Cozza Nearly perfect. So much fun. A horror movie that I will 100 percent watch again. EDIT
Posted Mar 22, 2019
3/5 Captain Marvel (2019) Steph Cozza It was lacking, a bit flat, and I'm honestly concerned about how she will enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe...it's so concerned with being a feminist film that it forgets how to be a superhero movie. EDIT
Posted Mar 14, 2019
4.5/5 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Steph Cozza This was a blast, and I had a thrilling time watching Alita: Battle Angel...this is how you make a live-action anime film. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2019
3.5/5 Glass (2019) Steph Cozza There are a lot of stories and characters just jammed into one movie...Samuel L. Jackson did play his part so well, though, and I enjoyed every scene he was in. EDIT
Posted Jan 18, 2019
5/5 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Steph Cozza I loved every web-slinging second. It had so much heart. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2019
3/5 Aquaman (2018) Steph Cozza All in all it's not great, but it's not terrible. Better than Thor 2, I will say that, but I feel like this is one of those movies I'll forget the plot of. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2019
3.5/5 Bumblebee (2018) Steph Cozza [Bumblebee] felt like a classic 1980s feel-good movie that happened to have Transformers in it. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2018
2/5 The Favourite (2018) Steph Cozza The music was beautiful, the acting was wonderful, but it's 100-percent a movie I won't remember exists a month from now...it had good stuff in it, but it just wasn't good. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2018
4/5 Anna and the Apocalypse (2017) Steph Cozza It was such a great time. I'm gonna watch this every year on Christmas. And sometimes not on Christmas. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2018
2/5 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Steph Cozza There is just so much bad...but there are a few really funny, cute, good moments...do me a favor and end this franchise. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2018
4/5 Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Steph Cozza Rami Malek blew me away. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2018
5/5 A Star Is Born (2018) Steph Cozza Everything that it does, it does really well...a slow burn, the length really didn't bother me... EDIT
Posted Oct 5, 2018
3.5/5 Venom (2018) Steph Cozza It's actually one of those movies you can watch over and over again...I left feeling like Guardians of the Galaxy, I was smiling and laughing throughout the whole movie. EDIT
Posted Oct 5, 2018
5/5 Mandy (2018) Steph Cozza Beautifully-designed, genius and very self-aware. EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2018
3.5/5 Eighth Grade (2018) Steph Cozza A very impressive directorial debut. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
4/5 Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Steph Cozza I was dancing, it was so much fun, and I left the theater feeling great. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
4/5 Mission: Impossible -- Fallout (2018) Steph Cozza A three-hour movie that doesn't feel like three hours...the best action movie this year, so far. EDIT
Posted Jul 27, 2018
4/5 Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018) Steph Cozza Ant-Man and the Wasp is a classic Marvel superhero film but also a fresh palette cleanse to the MCU we've known for so long. EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2018
5/5 Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) Steph Cozza I love when you watch a documentary and you can tell that the interviewer really asked the right questions. EDIT
Posted Jun 22, 2018
4/5 Ocean's 8 (2018) Steph Cozza Clever, believable, and super fun to watch. It totally has replay value. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2018
4.5/5 Upgrade (2018) Steph Cozza I'm so excited that it's good, because it could have been so bad...I had a lot of fun. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2018
4/5 Hereditary (2018) Steph Cozza I was so scared, I was walking down the sidewalk seeing things. So many images in my mind because of this movie...it horrified me, which is what it's supposed to do. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2018
4.5/5 Incredibles 2 (2018) Steph Cozza It's so well-done. I love the idea of parents being superheroes, I love that message. EDIT
