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

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

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

Avengers: Endgame (2019) Dorian Parks If you've invested years of your life to the MCU [Marvel Cinematic Universe] like I have, this movie will feel like a fan letter to you. Kevin Feige and his team deserve so much praise for being able to pull off something of this magnitude. EDIT

Shazam! (2019) Dorian Parks Shazam! is a game-charger for the DCEU and comic book movies in general. It is an amazing family movie with incredible fight scenes, and great humor. 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

Posted Feb 4, 2019
First Man (2018) Britany Murphy While the film had some great thematic elements (specifically the moments in space), the same things that were felt toward the beginning and end of the film, did not span across the film's entirety. EDIT

Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Qamar Shafiq The Buzzsaw snarled and rattled, and then the motor gave out. EDIT

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (2018) Andrew J. Salazar Despite stumbling in the second half, Mowgli recovers in finding its footing in being the bold interpretation of Kipling's tales that it set out to be. It does so with additionally offering excellent performances and innovative visuals. EDIT
Posted Dec 6, 2018
Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Dorian Parks Despite all the great things about Ralph Breaks the Internet, the movie gets slightly derailed in the middle act, but it's easier to look past is because you'll likely be focusing on all the Disney easter eggs and nostalgia throughout. EDIT

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Dorian Parks Into the Spider-Verse is one of the best movies of the year and one of the best-animated films ever made. EDIT

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Britany Murphy Perhaps, we will just have to wait and see where the ending will bring us in a new film - but based on the events of this one, I am no longer that invested. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2018
A Star Is Born (2018) Ferdosa Abdi Gaga's performance is outstanding and is deserving of all the praise she's been receiving. That being said, I do wish that Allie was given as much depth and attention as Jackson. EDIT

Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Ferdosa Abdi Despite my misgivings with the plotting of the film, I thoroughly enjoyed settling in at the El Royale and being made to feel like one of the mysterious managers... EDIT

Venom (2018) Andrew J. Salazar Creating a cult following is always fun and worth something, but it will not warrant the legs for a series that can keep up with the majority of people left wanting more. EDIT
