4/5 End of Watch (2012) Justin Brown It holds up, it's just a good movie... EDIT
Posted May 11, 2020
4/5 End of Watch (2012) Brandon Collins Really solid performances, and really solid cinematography with a heavy punch...there are very few movies we see lately that have actual stakes... EDIT
Posted May 11, 2020
4/5 The Banker (2020) Justin Brown It was a great story, of people defying odds in an atypical way... EDIT
Posted May 11, 2020
4/5 The Banker (2020) Brandon Collins Kind of formulaic, and there are some parts that are definitely corny, but it was so good to see a movie about Black businessmen that own their own companies...great seeing these characters shine, see wealth in a different way in this community... EDIT

2/5 Magic Mike (2012) Justin Brown The dancing was about as bad as I expected it to be...although the movie is somewhat enjoyable, the characters are not great... EDIT
Posted May 4, 2020
2/5 Magic Mike (2012) Brandon Collins It's all over the place, if mildly entertaining...I did like the way it was shot, I thought that was cool. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2020
3/5 The Hunt (2020) Justin Brown It's certainly entertaining, but it was also kind of dumb. A mindless action film that you watch to just put something on. To take this movie literally [in a political sense] is nonsense... EDIT
Posted May 4, 2020
4/5 The Hunt (2020) Brandon Collins Solid performances that had me sold in it. A lot of surprises at the beginning that kept me engaged, and there was never a lull... EDIT
Posted May 4, 2020
3/5 Fear (1996) Justin Brown It's well-paced, a little crazy and creepy, but that's how it built up the character and the tension... EDIT
Posted May 4, 2020
2/5 Fear (1996) Brandon Collins It's not great. An interesting way to spend an hour-and-a-half, that's for sure. The performances were fine, but it was so twisted. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2020
1/5 Demolition Man (1993) Justin Brown This movie is completely bonkers, it makes no sense. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2020
1/5 Demolition Man (1993) Brandon Collins More than two hours, it could've easily been under 90 minutes...Sandra Bullock is completely wasted in this film. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2020
4/5 Teen Titans GO! to the Movies (2018) Brandon Collins One of those movies where it's hard to even break down. See it and enjoy it for what it is. I don't see anyone not having a good time with this one. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2020
5/5 Teen Titans GO! to the Movies (2018) Justin Brown A palate-cleansing movie, and it's great, much needed...I'm glad I watched it. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2020
3/5 Outbreak (1995) Justin Brown Regardless of how ridiculous this movie was, it's extremely entertaining. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2020
2/5 Outbreak (1995) Brandon Collins The first hour was intriguing, but it is gross and nasty... EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2020
4/5 The Invisible Man (2020) Justin Brown It was very well-done. The acting was solid. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2020
4/5 The Invisible Man (2020) Brandon Collins Really entertaining, and I was really surprised by it. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2020
4/5 Luce (2019) Justin Brown The sky's the limit for [Kelvin Harrison Jr.]... EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
4/5 Luce (2019) Brandon Collins Very impressed by this. Surprised by this film, with all its twists and turns...it wasn't as complex, but it was definitely terrifying... EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
4/5 Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Justin Brown The characters were good, and can actually get you into this film...a pretty dope movie, I'm happy I sat down and watched it. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
4/5 Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Brandon Collins This is a fun movie, one of my favorite D.C. movies...I was shocked by just how much fun this was, having known nothing about it...this is really an R-rated Batman, a D.C. Deadpool. Margot Robbie is hilarious with such range... EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
2/5 Poetic Justice (1993) Justin Brown Outside of a certain demographic, it's just not going to hit the same way. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
2/5 Poetic Justice (1993) Brandon Collins It was fine, I loved Janet Jackson, but for me watching it now, my brain is blank. it wasn't terrible, wasn't good, it was just there. Respect to a Black romantic drama revered in the community, but I'd rather watch Love & Basketball... EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
2/5 Indecent Proposal (1993) Justin Brown It is an intriguing film, but I don't like the tension that it brought... EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
3/5 Indecent Proposal (1993) Brandon Collins Mildly entertaining, a throwback to prime Demi Moore... EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
2/5 Belly (1998) Brandon Collins That opening scene bumps it up. I forgot, upon rewatching, how great the opening is and how terrible everything after is. Should've just been a music video... EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
1/5 Belly (1998) Justin Brown If we're not talking about the opening...this is pure insanity. Have you actually watched this movie? EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
Bad Boys for Life (2020) Brandon Collins I'm very impressed. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
4/5 Bad Boys for Life (2020) Justin Brown Especially for a franchise, being spread this far...this is such a good version, exactly what you're supposed to do, while acknowledging the time passing and taking it in a different direction. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
1/5 () Justin Brown This nosedives from a damn satellite. This is really bad. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
1/5 () Brandon Collins Atrocious, out-of-control, yet not even mildly entertaining... EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
2/5 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Brandon Collins I haven't walked out of a franchise movie this disappointed in a while...like, was that the ending of Star Wars? Literally, like...whoever has these new movies, they have an uphill battle. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2020
2/5 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Justin Brown If this new series is coming, they need to take some risks and stick to it...backtracking like this does no service to the genre. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2020
5/5 The Farewell (2019) Justin Brown So well-acted, you felt it. I thought it was a really, really solid movie, and I was very surprised by it. EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2020
5/5 Knives Out (2019) Brandon Collins I love a good murder-mystery thats well-acted and well-paced. Daniel Craig was amazing. EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2020
4/5 Knives Out (2019) Justin Brown It looked great, on top of the fact that the story was so interesting, and kept you glued to your seat... EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2020
1/5 Black and White (1998) Justin Brown So far gone, it's irredeemable. EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2020
1/5 Black and White (1998) Brandon Collins This is wild. Absolutely wild. I had to watch an hour-and-a-half of white kids in dreads... EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2020
Cats (2019) Justin Brown Might as well have not existed, as far as I'm concerned. Does this movie have any redeeming qualities? EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2020
1/5 Cats (2019) Brandon Collins Just bad, a new rating...Tom Hooper was up for thirty-six hours straight, which means he was just losing his mind...too far gone... EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2020
2/5 Queen & Slim (2019) Brandon Collins I did really enjoy a lot of the performances, and the cinematography, but some scenes did not sit well with me and went so over the top... EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2019
2/5 Queen & Slim (2019) Justin Brown Some great things are done in this movie, especially how it was shot and some of the dialogue...but I felt it was mostly highly unnecessary, and in actuality, I wouldn't have minded a different ending... EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2019
1/5 The Santa Clause (1994) Justin Brown Weird, confusing, and there are just so many questions. EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2019
1/5 The Santa Clause (1994) Brandon Collins Wild, disturbing, and it made no sense. EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2019
1/5 The Hebrew Hammer (2003) Brandon Collins There's nothing that Andy Dick is even doing with his appearance to resemble Santa Claus... EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2019
1/5 The Hebrew Hammer (2003) Justin Brown This is a career-killer right here. EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2019
4/5 The Raid 2 (2014) Justin Brown Way too long, but the fight scenes are absolutely unmatched. EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2019
4/5 The Raid 2 (2014) Brandon Collins I am still in awe of that fight choreography... EDIT
Posted Dec 30, 2019
4/5 Doctor Sleep (2019) Justin Brown A very well-paced film considering the 40-year gap from the original...it really felt like a great complimentary piece. EDIT
