Wonder Park (2019) Jordan Calhoun Wonder Park is easily enjoyable for the whole family, with a powerful lesson for the youngest to the oldest. EDIT

Captain Marvel (2019) M. Skylar Ezell While Captain Marvel does very little in terms of personal growth, she does represent a certain female fearlessness that is wonderful to experience. EDIT

Captain Marvel (2019) L.E.H Light Danvers is a hero worth stanning for. And all indications are that the movie gives her the space to shine. EDIT

() Mikkel Synder It's such an engaging film that it has convinced me to find back issues of the manga and watch the first season of the original anime. EDIT

Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Frantz Jerome The movie checks boxes for all audiences, drives home a compelling universe with a pretty decent story, leaves a cliffhanger AND drops an F-bomb! You might not like this movie, but you will put some respect on Alita's name(Gally if you're nasty). EDIT

8.4/10 High Flying Bird (2019) Khadjiah johnson High Flying Bird is not only for those who want to understand the scandals beyond the game, it is a great outline for understanding the selling of joy for commodity. EDIT

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) Mikkel Synder You owe it to yourself, your family members, and your friends to see this film in theaters. It takes the foundation set up in its prequel and builds on them to their natural and perfected end. EDIT

Glass (2019) Frantz Jerome What came through was a piece of film that undermined the innovations in storytelling offered by the genre. I left the theatre feeling cheated, just like when I saw Batman v. Superman. EDIT

Doragon bôru chô: Burorî -- Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018) William Young Go see this film and experience it with other Dragon Ball fans in a theater near you for the full hype experience. This is by far the best Dragon Ball Z movie so far. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2019
Social Animals (2018) Jordan Calhoun Social Animals offers us a personal look into the reality of the fantasy if we're bold enough for the task. No matter how you feel, Facebook is betting you play the game...whether you like to or not. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2019
Aquaman (2018) L.E.H Light I can recommend Aquaman as a fun couple of hours in the theatre. It isn't going to re-write cinema or anything, but I do think it keeps DC in the running for being able to produce an enjoyable movie that entertains fans and casual watchers alike. EDIT

Mary Poppins Returns (2018) M. Skylar Ezell If you're looking for a mindlessly fun time or an excuse to connect with your childhood, then Mary Poppins Returns is definitely for you. Otherwise, you may want to see it during a matinee or wait for the DVD. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2018
Bird Box (2018) Jordan Calhoun Films like this work to the extent their characters represent decision-making that stretches the sharpness of the audience (without overdoing it with Macgyver-esque antics) or suffer the opposite problem of insulting them with idiots. EDIT
Posted Dec 11, 2018
Creed II (2018) Aisha Jordan A solid film that pulls you in in the way these films do, but if you come in knowing that, you let the path take you. EDIT
Posted Dec 4, 2018
Robin Hood (2018) Frantz Jerome All in all, a shallow take on deepening the mythos of Robin Hood that the youth of this generation can understand and see themselves reflected in. The faults are outweighed by the attempt to do something new. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2018
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Ja-Quan Greene Last but not least, get yourself a reserved movie ticket ASAP because this movie is a visual masterpiece that is going to sell out quick, and I cannot wait for everyone to indulge in the spectacle of it all. EDIT
Posted Nov 29, 2018
The American Meme (2018) Jordan Calhoun Whether the crash is worth the ride, though - The American Meme trusts you to find the same answer in all four of its stories. EDIT
Posted Nov 28, 2018
Liyana (2017) Jordan Calhoun It's that collective experience that carries the emotional heft of Liyana as she becomes a kaleidoscopic mirror of the storytellers' experiences with challenges that make them unsafe. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2018
Widows (2018) Ja-Quan Greene Widows is definitely worth your money at the box office. Much of the dark crime thriller features supremely talented women making money moves, and if you have a problem with that, well... this one ain't for you! EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2018
Mid90s (2018) Ja-Quan Greene We all go through the struggle at one point or another, but we can't let the bad moments keep us down. We have to keep kicking and pushing until we get where we need to be. With a tagline of "Fall. Get back up.", Mid90s is a must see. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2018
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Aisha Jordan If you're a fan of the series and plan to go see it if you haven't already: Go see it, you'll probably like it, but be prepared to be confused on a spectrum of a little to a lot. EDIT
Posted Nov 19, 2018
Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) M. Skylar Ezell Though Ralph Breaks the Internet is marketed to kids, its PG rating and pop culture references make it a fun ride for childless adults too. EDIT
Posted Nov 14, 2018
Instant Family (2018) Jordan Calhoun Instant Family operates in a level of self-awareness by discussing the white savior narrative and looking some of its challenges in the eye. EDIT
Posted Nov 14, 2018
7.9/10 Betty: They Say I'm Different (2017) Jon-Carlos Evans Betty, however, reveals and the genius of the woman who was a songwriter, bandleader, fashionista, and singer - a funk renaissance artist. EDIT
Posted Nov 13, 2018
Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Aisha Jordan Freddie's genius and unapologetic way of being himself were splashed across the screen and riddled with shame and loneliness at the same time. Rami was able to bring this duality of confidence and insecurity that tugged on my heartstrings the whole film. EDIT
Posted Nov 13, 2018
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) Garrett Green No matter how beautiful a film looks though, it can't make up for a lackluster story, uninteresting characters, and inconsistent tone. Yes, all these characters are pretty to look at, but that's how deep it goes. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2018
Viral Beauty (2017) Jordan Calhoun Whether the film is for you depends on your relationship to cringe humor and your familiarity with, and interest in, internet celebrity culture. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2018
Night School (2018) Jordan Calhoun Hart and Haddish have comedic chemistry though, easily seen (and laughed at) when the two cap on each other through the first act of Night School, before Teddy embraced hard work under her tutelage. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2018
A Star Is Born (2018) Jordan Calhoun Overall, A Star Is Born is melodrama at its best, an emotional manipulation that works even if you're not normally a sucker for that type of thing. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2018
The Other Side of the Wind (2018) Jon-Carlos Evans When taken into context of the cinematic form, both in content and technical achievement, however, the film is every bit as groundbreaking as Citizen Kane. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2018
My Hero Academia: Two Heroes (2018) Mikkel Synder Relentlessly optimistic and incredibly wholesome, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes is both the feel-good movie of the fall that other films should aspire to be and the silver screen debut of what I'd call probably one of the most popular anime series of 2018. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2018
Assassination Nation (2018) M. Skylar Ezell While Assassination Nation soars in its examinations of gender dynamics and abuse of various forms, it falters in the mechanics of how the story focuses the wrath of the leaks squarely at the feet of our four heroines. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2018
Death Note (2017) William Evans This terrible movie ain't worth me explaining the premise. EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2018
7/10 The House With a Clock in Its Walls (2018) Brittany N. Williams Just know your littles well to avoid unnecessary trauma. It would've been too much for little me, so proceed with caution. Overall, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is a great pre-Halloween watch to get you in the creepy mood. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2018
Searching (2018) Ja-Quan Greene John Cho provides a level of tenacity in a main character that I haven't felt since Denzel in John Q. The family dynamic is intoxicating, from the heartbreaking intro to the gripping finish. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2018
An American in Paris - The Musical (2018) Jordan Calhoun An American In Paris captures Paris' transition into joy. That transition, the finding of hope and beauty both from and through art, is one of the most resonant and meaningful themes of the production. EDIT
Posted Sep 21, 2018
A Simple Favor (2018) Aisha Jordan The chemistry between Stephanie and Emily is eclectic, yup read that right: eclectic. They are a classic odd couple but it works and it is mesmerizing. It's the way Kendrick and Lively dive into their characters. EDIT
Posted Sep 20, 2018
White Boy Rick (2018) Aisha Jordan It is shot well, the performances are engaging and strong, I was in it from beginning to end. I felt things for the characters, laughed, could not bring myself to cry because I physically cannot cry white tears, but it was emotionally provoking. EDIT
Posted Sep 20, 2018
70th Emmy Awards (2018) Aisha Jordan The 70th Emmy Awards reminded me of SNL this year, some skits made you chuckle others were like...I don't get it and what's supposed to be funny? This is no fault of the hosts; they were hilarious and right on time. EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2018
The Children Act (2017) Garrett Green If you like your dramas in film form that are of the British variety then this one may be for you. For me though, while it's a well-acted movie, I just couldn't get over how uninteresting the actual story was that was presented. EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2018
Sierra Burgess Is a Loser (2018) Jordan Calhoun Sierra Burgess is a Loser will make you wonder whether every girl is made to be a mean one, while you also ask yourself just how deep beauty is to you. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2018
The Nun (2018) Jordan Calhoun The Nun is a sequence of jump scares that starts strong, but whose horrors rapidly dwindle with each passing encounter. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2018
Kin (2018) Jordan Calhoun Overall, KIN views like a 2-hour prequel meant to whet your appetite, but instead is a foul-smelling warning to stay away from whatever comes next. EDIT
Posted Sep 6, 2018
Yoru wa mijikashi aruke yo otome (2017) Carrie McClain A film with reminders that you should have clean your room yet also a film about cherishing the highs and lows of youth. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2018
To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) Jordan Calhoun This generation is lucky to have To All the Boys I've Ever Loved Before as the teen romance comedy of their generation. EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2018
Crazy Rich Asians (2018) M. Skylar Ezell In terms of cultural and artistic relevance, Crazy Rich Asians has more than proven itself. And yes, its even worth paying the full, non-matinee price. EDIT
Posted Aug 13, 2018
The Meg (2018) Jordan Calhoun Watching it is like watching the spectacle of a class clown at their best: you laugh at their jokes, instigate their defiance, and "ooooh" when they get in trouble. The Meg is the class clown of Hollywood. Every shark movie is at this point. EDIT
Posted Aug 12, 2018
The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) Aisha Jordan Although I seem to have had higher expectations than I thought, the movie is super entertaining. We got fight scenes, car chases, undercover missions, mixed with the bumbling antics of the BFFs and genuine luck having duo. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2018
Christopher Robin (2018) M. Skylar Ezell Christopher Robin works best when highlighting the conflict we all go through as we grow up and lose touch with the child we used to be. The film also does a fantastic job of juxtaposing the reality of our past with that of our current. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2018
Teen Titans GO! to the Movies (2018) Jordan Calhoun Teen Titans GO! to the Movies is full of irreverent humor, self-deprecating punchlines, and a silliness that feels reminiscent of when you laughed at Animaniacs as a child. EDIT
