Gemini Man (2019) Andrew J. Salazar Given how far he has come as a filmmaker, it would first appear that [Ang] Lee handling the original absurdity of Gemini Man could only make for a modern sci-fi epic. Unfortunately, the result is that of a maestro drowned by his own devices. EDIT

6/10 Ad Astra (2019) Britany Murphy Visually, it is stunning and while it attempts to bring some new elements into the space-thriller genre, there were still some elements that proved to be generic. EDIT

American Son (2019) Britany Murphy As a film that will leave you thinking about it for days to come, with a powerhouse performance by Washington, American Son is a film that truly must be seen. EDIT

8.5/10 It: Chapter Two (2019) Dorian Parks Andy Muschietti did a great job of not only staying faithful to the source material, but also adding fresh spins and ideas to this adaptation of a Stephen King classic. If you're a fan of the first movie (like me), you'll love this sequel. EDIT

Posted Aug 8, 2019
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Britany Murphy Unfortunately, the movie is simply okay at best, and doesn't quite keep up with some of the movies from the Fast & Furious franchise. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2019
The Lion King (2019) Dorian Parks From the VFX, to the voice acting, I was truly impressed that they were able to pull off something as big as this, especially with the original being so iconic and a favorite to many. EDIT

Stuber (2019) Andrew J. Salazar Under incompetent hands, this concept could have easily danced a fine line of problematics. However, the leads are not only fantastic, but the characters are built from relatable struggles. EDIT

Dark Phoenix (2019) Britany Murphy As a huge fan of the X-Men comic books and some of the films, I felt disappointed that this is the note that the X-Men franchise (as we know it) will leave us on. EDIT

Always Be My Maybe (2019) Josephine L. Despite the seemingly formulaic storyline itself, Always Be My Maybe shines in the way it makes its audience feel seen. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2019
Ma (2019) Britany Murphy Where it falls short is that it's almost two stories in one and it should have stuck to one plot line. The film could have been a good revenge thriller, had that been the main focus. EDIT
Posted May 31, 2019
Aladdin (2019) Jay Dasgupta I get that Disney intends to target the American audience first. But in the days where the global box office generates more revenue, why can't there be a little more care and research devoted to getting a few cultural notes right? EDIT
Posted May 28, 2019
Rocketman (2019) Jay Dasgupta [Taron Egerton] truly blasts off in Rocketman. A performance so rich and colorful that it wows and captures the very soul of Elton John; a man we have all loved from afar. EDIT

Us (2019) Joelle Monique Us truly feels like another FUBU moment. Like Beyoncé dropping a visual album unannounced, Kaepernick making the NFL pay him, and mourning the loss of Prince, Us could be unifying zeitgeist moment. EDIT

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) María Garduño While the movie is amazing and a perfect ending to this franchise, the truth is that the villain of the film, Grimmel, is not really noteworthy. In fact, you leave the theatre not really remembering him. EDIT

Posted Feb 12, 2019
Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Britany Murphy With a stirring performance from Rosa Salazar and a cast of great, but underused villains, Alita: Battle Angel is still worthy of a watch on the big screen. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) Avram Vargas Chad Stahelski and Keanu [Reeves] not only match the merits of the first film with John Wick: Chapter 2, but even exceed the first in many forms. John Wick is back! EDIT

Coco (2017) María Garduño If one were to describe Coco in one word, it'd be beautiful, as not only the scenarios and colours presented in this film are beautiful and astonishing, but the story as well, as it remarks in one of the most important things there are, family. EDIT
