Rating Title/Year Author
7.75/10 Aladdin (2019) Colby Bryant A truly beautiful film with laughs and incredible sights and sounds galore; maybe it was unnecessary, but it isn't unnoteworthy. EDIT
Posted May 27, 2019
8.25/10 Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Colby Bryant By film's end, I wanted to watch it all again for the details throughout, and if that doesn't perfectly fit that "gotta catch 'em all" quality of the series, what does? EDIT
Posted May 20, 2019
10/10 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Colby Bryant A truly incredible and virtually unparalleled moviegoing experience that I can't wait to have again as soon as possible and many more times beyond that...Mission accomplished. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2019
9.0/10 Shazam! (2019) Colby Bryant Zachary Levi effortlessly steals the spotlight in a crowded landscape of hero films with an instantly iconic performance, and I personally want to see more of what follows. EDIT
Posted Apr 9, 2019
7.5/10 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Colby Bryant For all fans of sci-fi and action films, I would fully recommend... as it potentially could...(start) an exciting franchise (that) will surely test the limits of filmmaking... EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2019
7.0/10 Captain Marvel (2019) Colby Bryant An interesting premise... (with) nostalgic packaging. Enjoy Captain Marvel for what it is: an oddly fun character introduction with charm and imperfections all its own. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2019
7.75/10 The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Colby Bryant I think this film has enough going for it to deserve a recommendation, even as it inevitably fails to recapture the full measure of energy and wonder of the original. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2019
9.0/10 The Upside (2018) Colby Bryant The laughs were in far more abundance than I anticipated, and all of that fun came alongside a story that moved me with honest performances. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2019
6.5/10 Glass (2019) Colby Bryant (The film becomes) too self-aware and grasping for some sense of self-importance, something that Unbreakable and Split (to a lesser degree) earned on their own. EDIT
Posted Jan 17, 2019
7.75/10 Split (2016) Colby Bryant McAvoy makes the entire film a tour-de-force of acting, and while the story is genuinely unsettling to witness, it's mesmerizing throughout. EDIT
Posted Jan 17, 2019
9.5/10 Unbreakable (2000) Colby Bryant (It won't) appeal to all... (but) for those interested in understanding the psychology of what makes heroes and villains tick, there are few films I could recommend higher. EDIT
Posted Jan 16, 2019
8.75/10 Aquaman (2018) Colby Bryant It's predictable yet fun; it's a worthy hero origin, but being that it's this good for a hero so heavily chided for so long, it feels like even more of an accomplishment. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2018
9.25/10 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Colby Bryant With style for Miles, this film carves a unique place in the pop-culture landscape, honoring what came before while still being entirely its own thing. EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2018
7.5/10 Creed II (2018) Colby Bryant Feeling to have less energy than the preceding film, it's still an enjoyable and competently made follow-up ... and a fitting swan-song for the character of Rocky Balboa. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2018
7.25/10 Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Colby Bryant (It's) a worthy successor to the original (even as it becomes a very different thing on its own), and it presents a pitch-perfect lampooning of our current society. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
9.0/10 Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Colby Bryant Rami Malek's portrayal of Mercury should garner well-deserved awards acclaim. Undoubtedly, it was one of the most enjoyable biopics I've ever watched. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
8.5/10 The Jungle Book (2016) Colby Bryant With incredible tech on display, it would all be empty without great actors embodying the characters. No one disappoints. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
9.0/10 Captain America: Civil War (2016) Colby Bryant (It) never felt beholden to "world building" of establishing the many films that will be following; however, it did feel richly constructed upon the many films made prior. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
8.0/10 Doctor Strange (2016) Colby Bryant Doctor Strange breaks new ground from everything so far (in the Marvel Cinematic Universe)...new dimensions even. What a trip! EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
8.0/10 Star Trek Beyond (2016) Colby Bryant I summarize with as high of praise as I could for the film: Star Trek Beyond felt like an extended episode I've never seen. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
8.5/10 Moana (2016) Colby Bryant There are genuine laughs and emotions to be felt here, and even though the runtime is longer than many animated Disney films, it flies by. That must mean we were having fun... EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
7.5/10 Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Colby Bryant If you keep your expectations at a level that is appropriate for a new take on a fun TV show, you are in for a good time. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
8.5/10 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Colby Bryant The perfect compliment to children who grew up with Harry Potter and are now adults ... The series looks back with the trappings of a film more tailored for adults in tone. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
8.5/10 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Colby Bryant The Guardians series continues well here in Vol. 2, giving viewers more of what they expect in the unexpected. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
9.0/10 Wonder Woman (2017) Colby Bryant It isn't groundbreaking in structure, but its exhibition of strong female heroism amidst conflicts of the past just elevates everything... EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
6.5/10 Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Colby Bryant I don't think it will be a film I come back to over time, which is a shame considering how many times I've watched other Burton films out of enjoyment. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
6.5/10 Cars 3 (2017) Colby Bryant An existential crisis ... when someone only knows one thing and the world takes that away ... , what do they do next? That sounds like a great film, and Cars 3 mostly is. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
2.0/10 Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Colby Bryant Seriously, this all needs to be put to rest. Autobots, let's roll on to something else, because this isn't working...at all. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
7.5/10 Beauty and the Beast (2017) Colby Bryant A wonderful compliment to all that preceded it, fleshing out the story and connecting plotpoints that were overlooked before. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
9.0/10 Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Colby Bryant We have never witnessed the "friendly neighborhood Spider-Man" like we see in the comics...until now ... (school and life problems make him) relatable. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
9.75/10 War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Colby Bryant The three films (stand) consistently as a strong trilogy, and in my mind, ... one of the strongest. Often, quality slips with each entry, but (these) get stronger as they go. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
9.0/10 Logan (2017) Colby Bryant I plan to revisit (it) in the future, even if not often. (That's not) dismissive critique, but (preparation) for a bold, harsh look at characters you've loved for years. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
6.25/10 Despicable Me 3 (2017) Colby Bryant I end this look at the film, hoping the filmmakers will consider an end, as well. Gru and company have had a good run with levels of success most films can only dream of. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
6.5/10 Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) Colby Bryant You could definitely do worse with a rental, and unless you just adamantly hate all things Smurf, be open to having it for a movie night with the family. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
1.75/10 Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Colby Bryant All in all, I would caution ... (those) just there to "see the visuals" to think twice ... It felt like a complete waste of time ... (and) I'm not alone in that sentiment. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
4.25/10 The Emoji Movie (2017) Colby Bryant "I've seen worse...but I've seen a LOT better." I'll stand by that ... (It has) decent animation and other things, but the film left me meh. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
7.75/10 Kong: Skull Island (2017) Colby Bryant While he doesn't carry the pathos ... (of) Caesar of the Planet of the Apes films, ... Kong's a full on action hero here, laying the smack down in ways that make you cheer. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
7.5/10 The Dark Tower (2017) Colby Bryant I was impressed by the film: the narrative hook, the look, and the stirring it gave me to pick up the books. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
5.5/10 The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (2017) Colby Bryant If you're looking for a clean, afternoon watch with the kids, I've seen better and I've seen worse. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
8.25/10 Dunkirk (2017) Colby Bryant Nolan always makes films that engage the brain as much as any other faculty, and here, we see a film that is as visceral and experiential as anything he's ever done. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
6.75/10 The LEGO NINJAGO Movie (2017) Colby Bryant While I may have been let down on some levels by this film, The LEGO Ninjago Movie still offers a good time, even for those with no familiarity with the toy line. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
9.0/10 Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Colby Bryant For fans of the original, this beautiful masterwork extends the legacy ... Fans of films that are thought-provoking and lingering in both shot and effect, it's a must-see. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
6.75/10 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Colby Bryant (It) feels looser and more playful than (other films in the series) ... more in line with the well-respected first entry, even if (it's far) more self-aware than any of them. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
8.75/10 Baby Driver (2017) Colby Bryant In conclusion, Baby Driver has style for miles ... the whole thing is a sight-and-sound experience, a ride that doesn't let up and doesn't let you go. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
7.75/10 Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Colby Bryant If you want to have many laughs and an unpredictable ride, it's hard to go wrong with Ragnarok and the fierce flurry of fun it provides. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
5.5/10 Justice League (2017) Colby Bryant Like visiting a sample booth at the grocery ... a few good bites, for sure, but the ... experience comes from a stilted awkwardness that kills any comfort the food could bring. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
9.0/10 Get Out (2017) Colby Bryant It shares perspectives that I believe only a film like this can share; that makes it worthy of consideration and contemplation. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
5.5/10 The Mummy (2017) Colby Bryant All in all, there just isn't much here to like, and it's a shame. The title would have been better suited to be "Tom Cruise: The Iraqi Plunderer". EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
8.5/10 Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) Colby Bryant A fun "remix", if you will, of what we love about Star Wars. It doubles down on what works and safely doesn't reinvent the wheel. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2018
9.0/10 Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Colby Bryant The film examines a questioning of ideals held throughout the ages, a deconstruction of what we know and hold dear. EDIT
