1/5 The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Rendy Jones Ay, caramba! EDIT
Posted Apr 19, 2019
3.5/5 () Rendy Jones An enjoyable single-set thriller that has enough high-octane laughs and intense thrills to grip you throughout. EDIT
Posted Apr 18, 2019
3/5 Teen Spirit (2018) Rendy Jones Prospers from a great performance by Elle Fanning, and serves as an electrifying directorial debut by Max Minghella making it a joyously fun experience at the movies. EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2019
2/5 Little (2019) Rendy Jones An unevenly bland studio comedy that never packs enough Black Girl Magic to fill a 108-minute runtime and squanders its talented performances with a lazy execution. EDIT
Posted Apr 13, 2019
1.5/5 Hellboy (2019) Rendy Jones Ever heard of the phrase, "If it ain't broke, don't reboot it?" EDIT
Posted Apr 10, 2019
2.5/5 Wild Rose (2018) Rendy Jones The lack of progression written for its central character prevents this drama from reaching for the stars despite its breakthrough winning performance by Jessie Buckley. EDIT
Posted Apr 10, 2019
3.5/5 Missing Link (2019) Rendy Jones Laika made their own fun Indiana Jones like adventure with Missing Link and it's far more exciting than the majority of adventure films that have come out in the last decade. EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
2/5 The Best of Enemies (2019) Rendy Jones It's 2019. I don't need another White filmmaker telling me another formulaic race related story, especially when its story is entirely centered on the racist! EDIT
Posted Apr 5, 2019
3.5/5 () Rendy Jones An endearing drama that expresses how it's not just all about winning the gold, but making lasting relationships along the way. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2019
2/5 Dumbo (2019) Rendy Jones Instead of this feeling like a Tim Burton movie, what you have here is just a hollow family film. Seriously, it's Tim Burton who loves to get nuts, but he never gets nuts. EDIT
Posted Mar 30, 2019
3/5 The Brink (2019) Rendy Jones A a well-made portrait that will entertain and enlighten viewers interested in the current state of politics. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2019
3.5/5 Amazing Grace (2018) Rendy Jones Not a cellphone in sight, just people living in the moment, Amazing Grace is an infectious concert film that celebrates the Queen of Soul. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2019
3.5/5 Shazam! (2019) Rendy Jones I'll be darned that DC made a Big-esque origin film out of him and, honestly, it works! EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
4/5 Us (2019) Rendy Jones Us is not a successor to Get Out, but instead a solidification. A solidification that Peele is not only a master of horror, but an auteur who wears his ambitions on his sleeve EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2019
3.5/5 Pet Sematary (2019) Rendy Jones Uneven in tone, but unnerving in story, Pet Sematary continues the streak of decent King adaptations by providing tension, humor, great performances, and a tight script. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2019
4/5 () Rendy Jones Most of the positives I have towards this film are the comedic actors exhibiting their individual talents, and it's fun to witness thanks to Shelton's direction. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2019
3.5/5 Good Boys (2019) Rendy Jones Despite its many inconsistencies, Good Boys is vulgar, charmingly hilarious, dirty, and pretty much the live action South Park movie we never thought would be released. EDIT
Posted Mar 14, 2019
4.5/5 Booksmart (2019) Rendy Jones For Booksmart being Olivia Wilde's directorial debut, she expresses the WILD through her style. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2019
3/5 Them That Follow (2019) Rendy Jones The mystery may be way too obvious if you've seen any given romance movie ever, but the religious backdrop and the setting elevates the drama. EDIT
Posted Mar 10, 2019
3.5/5 Captain Marvel (2019) Rendy Jones The narrative is very predictable, but it's earned through its humor and fun performances rather than its storytelling which is the formula Marvel coasted by with for years. EDIT
Posted Mar 9, 2019
3/5 Little Monsters (2019) Rendy Jones Humor is very hit-and-miss, but the well-developed, charming narrative and performances by the central cast (primarily Nyong'o) makes Little Monsters an entertaining ride. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2019
4.5/5 Climax (2018) Rendy Jones Holy hell does Gaspar Noé know how to throw a party. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2019
4/5 Hail Satan? (2019) Rendy Jones Enlightening, chilling, and funny as hell, Penny Lane's doc provides thought-provoking/enraging themes of religious discrimination and the religious supremacy in our nation. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2019
4/5 The Mustang (2019) Rendy Jones Boldly examines the reality of incarceration and animal captivity while providing incredible performances and an impressive debut by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
2/5 Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral (2019) Rendy Jones It's better than the last 3 Madea films, but this finale would've been better if Perry went to stand-up classes, learned how to craft his jokes, and learned when to yell cut. EDIT
Posted Mar 2, 2019
2/5 Greta (2018) Rendy Jones The number of pills Greta asks you to swallow to invest in its story are of ample amount, but varies in size throughout, bringing the film to a halt oh so many times. EDIT
Posted Feb 27, 2019
4.5/5 How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) Rendy Jones A darn near perfect threequel that sends off an emotional farewell to Dreamworks' most reputable franchise. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to a corner to cry. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2019
3.5/5 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Rendy Jones Not only the first Manga film adaptation that doesn't suck, but it's just a fun time at the movies overall. EDIT
Posted Feb 16, 2019
4.5/5 Isn't It Romantic (2019) Rendy Jones Spins the conventional rom-com formula by satirizing and embracing it while making a timeless classic as a result. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2019
2.5/5 Happy Death Day 2U (2019) Rendy Jones Lacks the thrills and balanced elements which made the original special but Jessica Rothe deserves to be a superstar! EDIT
Posted Feb 12, 2019
1.5/5 The Prodigy (2019) Rendy Jones I don't know what's more disappointing; this movie not being scary or not being focused on the electronic music group of the same name. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
5/5 Knock Down the House (2019) Rendy Jones One of the best real life superhero origin stories ever. If you didn't stan AOC before (and why wouldn't you?!), you definitely will after watching this powerful doc. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2019
2/5 What Men Want (2019) Rendy Jones 19 years later, the same criticisms for "What Women Want" applies to this reimagining where it doesn't take proper advantage of its enticing premise to do anything clever. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2019
4/5 The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Rendy Jones I'm at the point now where I believe that Phil Lord and Chris Miller have the Midas touch because everything either one of them touches turns into gold. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2019
4/5 The Death of Dick Long (2019) Rendy Jones For a film with an immature title, The Death of Dick Long has to be one of the smartest and funniest comedies of the year. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2019
2.5/5 Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Rendy Jones The hybridization of genres is welcoming, but the execution (pun intended) is rather lackluster. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2019
4/5 Brittany Runs a Marathon (2018) Rendy Jones Powered with a winning performance by Bell who rings in her name, Colaizzo's directorial debut is an empowering comedy that is as strong as its lead. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2019
2.5/5 Native Son (2019) Rendy Jones Prospers from a great performance by Sanders, but Johnson's debut is undercut by an uneven story that lacks an identity, hardly even resembling its source material. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2019
3.5/5 () Rendy Jones Berlinger's approach focusing on the characteristics rather than the crimes is makes this crime story an enticing ride propelled by Efron and Collin's superb performances. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2019
5/5 Honey Boy (2019) Rendy Jones To face your demons is a difficult feat but Alma Har'el's Honey Boy allows Shia LaBeouf to do so with his phenomenal script and incredible performance. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2019
4.5/5 The Farewell (2019) Rendy Jones Wang's The Farewell is an incredible outlook on family tradition that is thought-provoking, relative, and personal. All while providing a stupendous performance by Awkwafina. EDIT
Posted Jan 26, 2019
5/5 Apollo 11 (2019) Rendy Jones A remarkable cinematic experience that is breathtaking to witness and redefines the medium of documentary filmmaking. EDIT
Posted Jan 25, 2019
4/5 The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) Rendy Jones Truly an instant classic family film, not just for all ages, but for the ages as well. EDIT
Posted Jan 24, 2019
3.5/5 Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018) Rendy Jones Packs one kamehameha of a good time. EDIT
Posted Jan 22, 2019
2/5 Glass (2019) Rendy Jones I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed. Yet for a Shyamalan film, I'd rather take disappointment over disastrous any day. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2019
3.5/5 Fyre (2019) Rendy Jones Chris Smith's FYRE cleverly comments on the glorification of the high-class lifestyle we dream of and the criminal extents people are willing to go to live it. EDIT
Posted Jan 14, 2019
2.5/5 The Upside (2018) Rendy Jones The Upside of this American remake lies in the charm and chemistry between Hart and Cranston. The downside is that it's way too familiar in its narrative. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2019
1.5/5 A Dog's Way Home (2019) Rendy Jones Truly puts the oof in woof. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2019
3/5 Escape Room (2019) Rendy Jones For this being the first release of 2019, there's a lot of fun to appreciate ---considering if you run out of the theater before the epilogue. EDIT
Posted Jan 5, 2019
1.5/5 Holmes & Watson (2018) Rendy Jones The equivalent of seeing best buds reunite at a high school reunion and after a while you realize they're better off without each other as their dynamic peaked in high school. EDIT
