The Midnight Sky (2020) Korey Coleman I was rooting for it... EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2021
The Midnight Sky (2020) Martin Thomas Too much of it is too familiar from other places, and what it goes into isn't terribly interesting. It has all the ingredients of a great movie but it somehow does not come together. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2021
We Can Be Heroes (2020) Martin Thomas Goofy, but it never defaults or cops out on that...you gotta take this for what it is, which is a lot of fun. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2021
We Can Be Heroes (2020) Korey Coleman I highly recommend this for kids, no question. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2021
Promising Young Woman (2020) Martin Thomas A promising young movie, but it kept stopping short of fully delivering on it...still very enjoyable, especially by the bombshell third act. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2021
Promising Young Woman (2020) Korey Coleman What caught me off-guard was how much the mood shifts...it's on my list of favorite movies this year and I truly didn't know what they were gonna do with this. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2021
Soul (2020) Korey Coleman Soul is a perfect movie. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Soul (2020) Martin Thomas Right when you think you get the message of the film, it turns another corner and you realize it's actually about something else. That makes this really good for rewatches. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Wolfwalkers (2020) Martin Thomas In the second half, I found myself unsure of how this would play out, giving me a good sense of danger and anxiety. This is what I wanted...and I was continually fascinated by the animation and the art style. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Wolfwalkers (2020) Korey Coleman Very sincere...the best of both Disney and Studio Ghibli films... EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Korey Coleman I do wonder who is giving these good reviews...though I will admit, it could have been worse. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Martin Thomas I wanted to like it...but at some point, it is what it is, come on. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Monster Hunter (2020) Martin Thomas Sequel-bait, with a high price tag. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Monster Hunter (2020) Korey Coleman If you're a fan of the original games, I can't blame you for a certain level of animosity toward this...it's fun enough I guess if you're watching at home, but again, that's me not playing the games. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Fatale (2020) Korey Coleman Almost to the point of parody...but if you watch this with the right group of friends, it can be fun, perfect for streaming despite the ridiculousness... EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Sound of Metal (2019) Korey Coleman A listening experience that I haven't had anywhere else, though the filmmaking is great too. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Sound of Metal (2019) Martin Thomas The production is done really well, and the performances stand out...it's a quiet, intimate film, but I kept waiting for it to hook me...good, but a bit at arms-length. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
The Pest (1997) Martin Thomas Anything for a laugh, anything to keep it going... EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
The Pest (1997) Korey Coleman Crazy, I'll give it credit for that. Much crazier than I thought it would be, just the premise alone...it's the goofiest, not all of it, but mixed together it combines for the goofiest... EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Songbird (2020) Martin Thomas So much of it is melodramatic music, and no one is saying anything important...whatever message it was trying to deliver gets abandoned for a super-thin action plot that goes nowhere. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Songbird (2020) Korey Coleman A PANDEMIC movie?! You knew this was stupid the minute you saw the trailer for it. Such a stupid movie. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Greenland (2020) Martin Thomas The last smart disaster movie I can think of... EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Greenland (2020) Korey Coleman We haven't had something like this for a while...a smart disaster movie. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat (2003) Martin Thomas I went out of my body. Jesus Christ. What was this? I usually enjoy watching bad movies. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat (2003) Korey Coleman They really thought this was going to work...they were so confident of a sequel, they made a video game for this! EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
One Night in Miami (2020) Korey Coleman It means a lot that I can watch an empowering Black movie like this without the standards of what Hollywood considers Black empowerment movies...and I'm so happy to see not just Black women, but all women behind the camera. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
One Night in Miami (2020) Martin Thomas A fictional account of an incredible moment. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
A Recipe for Seduction (2020) Korey Coleman A soap satire, where the shorter the better...the trailer works better, to be honest with you, but it's just 15 minutes and you will get a couple of chuckles from this. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
A Recipe for Seduction (2020) Martin Thomas At the end of it, if nothing else, I should've been hungering for chicken. And I wasn't. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Jiu Jitsu (2020) Martin Thomas At the ends, I fully threw my hands up. It makes no sense... EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Jiu Jitsu (2020) Korey Coleman I couldn't tell how anything connected to ANYTHING... EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
The Christmas Chronicles 2 (2020) Korey Coleman It's just right for kids during Christmas, although Dads won't want to watch this...but I liked it, and enjoyed it on its own level very much. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
The Christmas Chronicles 2 (2020) Martin Thomas I loved that first movie, I could watch it every Christmas...this one, not as much, very sequel-y... EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Mank (2020) Korey Coleman I can't recommend Mank for story at all, but you don't go into this for that. Not everybody can watch this, but I enjoyed it... EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
Mank (2020) Martin Thomas As a whole, it just doesn't flow together...the craftsmanship is great, but it ultimately was not an enjoyable experience. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
The Prom (2020) Martin Thomas There are some really great scenes between Meryl Streep and Keegan-Michael Key that grounds it...nothing but fun. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
The Prom (2020) Korey Coleman It's good, not mediocre...as long as you like musicals. EDIT
Posted Jan 20, 2021
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion (2020) Martin Thomas I am so glad I watched this, and I love the way they put it together, good clips that matched the story and didn't feel superfluous. The emotional beats were incredible. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion (2020) Korey Coleman There were some weird editing moments in there, but all in all, this makes me cry and laugh and reflect on the show that I watched religiously, they did that very well. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (2020) Martin Thomas So much of it either didn't make sense / contradicted itself, or felt like it was written on the fly to pass time... EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (2020) Korey Coleman It's a magical film. There are a lot of really feel-good moments between these characters, small touches with musical numbers...little things I really appreciated. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
The Croods: A New Age (2020) Korey Coleman The end knocked it down a bit, but I liked this a lot. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
The Croods: A New Age (2020) Martin Thomas One of the funniest movies I've seen this year. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020) Martin Thomas A digestible watch, and very very entertaining. It moves and just keeps going. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020) Korey Coleman From the performance angle, you are in for something amazing, just watching these people do what they do. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Sir Billi (2013) Martin Thomas Well, the family film stuff just went out the window. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Sir Billi (2013) Korey Coleman This movie had some nerve...like, you sure you wanted to do that? Sir Billi, everybody. EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Fatman (2020) Martin Thomas The movie's always taking these half-measures...it became very ambiguous... EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Fatman (2020) Korey Coleman I actually liked this movie, it's fun and good if you watch it with the right people, but not enough to go to the theaters... EDIT
Posted Jan 19, 2021
Freaky (2020) Korey Coleman Small touches would have made it great and pushed a little more, but I did have fun with it and there's enough laughs in here. EDIT
