Rating Title/Year Author
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Amanda Greever As much as I hate to say it, if you love Maleficent and her story, stop at the 2014 film or even rewatch the classic Sleeping Beauty. This sequel doesn't do the character or the Disney legacy justice. EDIT

Countdown (2019) Amanda Greever Countdown has jump scares galore, but that doesn't mean it's good. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
Downton Abbey (2019) Amanda Greever As a feature-length movie, the film falters on a few levels, but, as the end of an era and a final goodbye, it hits all the right notes. It's extravagant, rich and exactly what you'd expect on a trip to Downton Abbey. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
Joker (2019) Amanda Greever It's an incredibly heavy film. It's well done, but it's heavy and leaves the viewer feeling like they've just gone 10 rounds in a heavyweight boxing match. It's mentally exhausting and desperately dark. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
Gemini Man (2019) Amanda Greever Twice the Will Smith equals one 'meh' movie with Gemini Man. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
Judy (2019) Amanda Greever We are given a window into the final months of one of Hollywood's greatest stars and one of its greatest victims, as well. Hollywood has always preyed on the weak, children and women, especially. Judy was both. EDIT

In the Shadow of the Moon (2019) Amanda Greever At some point, In the Shadow of the Moon just goes down a wormhole of politics and elaborate theories. It's not fun to watch, and when we finally get the big reveal of why the killer did what she did we don't care. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
The Addams Family (2019) Amanda Greever This isn't a film only for children or old-school fans. There's something here for everyone. It's a clever, funny movie with a message about family, even the quirky ones who we want to belittle or make fun of. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
The Laundromat (2019) Amanda Greever Unfortunately, the story itself is too busy, jumbled and more than a bit dry. I found myself watching the clock and even pausing a time or two, shocked by how little of the film I'd actually sat through. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
Harriet (2019) Amanda Greever Harriet sheds light on a real-life abolitionist superhero EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Amanda Greever Terminator: Dark Fate features such strong female characters. Seriously, Schwarzenegger does make an appearance and while he's incredibly funny, he's not the hero of this film. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
The Good Liar (2019) Amanda Greever The Good Liar is a forgettable film featuring an otherwise stellar pairing. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
Noelle (2019) Amanda Greever Noelle isn't the kind of cinematic present that is wrapped in the finest paper bearing colorful bows and ribbons. It's the gift your aunt and uncle wrapped in old newspaper. However, you'll be happy with what you find inside. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
Playing With Fire (2019) Amanda Greever Playing With Fire isn't a deep film, and it's not an Oscar winner. But, it's a film that makes you feel better for having seen it. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
Secret Obsession (2019) Amanda Greever Amnesia might not be so bad after viewing Secret Obsession EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Murder Mystery (2019) Amanda Greever Murder Mystery is neither a comedy nor a mystery. It's just bad behavior masquerading as mass entertainment. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Amanda Greever Spider-Man: Far from Home builds upon what's come before and improves those elements that needed some help. The finished product is something that is fun, funny and heartfelt. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
The Lion King (2019) Amanda Greever The Lion King makes slight alterations to its source material, which results in a slightly more adult version. If you loved the original, chances are fairly good you'll love this one, too. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) Amanda Greever Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is about Tarantino's fascination with revisionism and the idea that cinema has the power to right past wrongs. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Men in Black: International (2019) Amanda Greever It's not a great film, and it's not even what I would consider to be a 'good' one. But, it's not meant to be. It's a fun romp through the galaxy, and Hemsworth and Thompson play off of each other beautifully. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
The Perfection (2018) Amanda Greever For those who like their films a little darker than mainstream studios are willing to bankroll, The Perfection might be right for you. It's dirty, messy moviemaking with a message. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Crawl (2019) Amanda Greever Crawl isn't a film off which to base any logical deductions. It's also not a film you should see sober. Or at all. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Amanda Greever It's ridiculous fun, which is exactly why you go see one of these films. It won't win any Oscars, but it's a diverting way to spend a couple of hours. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Otherhood (2019) Amanda Greever Otherhood is a sad showcase for once mighty actresses EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
() Amanda Greever A remake can be a dangerous thing. A remake of a film that is critically acclaimed and heavily appreciated must be done well. In the case of Netflix originalPoint Blank, the film proved to be a dangerous thing, and it wasn't done well. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Ready or Not (2019) Amanda Greever All in all, Ready or Not is a diverting, fun romp through the worst wedding ever. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Blinded by the Light (2019) Amanda Greever It's a story of self-discovery set to the most honest backdrop there is: music. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Falling Inn Love (2019) Amanda Greever While you might be willing to give it a chance, Falling Inn Love will have you questioning whether Netflix's romance offerings are going to take you out on a second date, or you've got better things to do like wash your hair. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) Amanda Greever The Peanut Butter Falcon takes viewers on an adventure. It makes us think, and it makes us feel. If you're like me, you'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll be glad you took a chance on a Shia LaBeouf movie. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) Amanda Greever Brittany Runs a Marathon is a film about struggle and strife. Yes, it's also about a woman going from clinically obese to running the New York City marathon, but that's not the real struggle here. It's a film about learning to love yourself. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
Hustlers (2019) Amanda Greever Forget what you think it's about, because Hustlers will surprise you EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) Amanda Greever Kid Who Would Be King entertains but comes up short EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Amanda Greever Velvet Buzzsaw just tries so hard. It wants to be artsy and on point. Unfortunately, it's all sizzle and no steak, a literal snooze-fest. EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
What Men Want (2019) Amanda Greever Despite message, What Men Want misses the comedy boat EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
Stan & Ollie (2018) Amanda Greever Stan & Ollie is a film about creativity and relationships, how those two are inextricably linked, sometimes to the puzzlement and surprise of creative partners. EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Amanda Greever The film is bloody, brutally violent and rather dull. The romance is awkward, the relationships stilted and the film's heroine rather uninteresting. EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
Thunder Road (2018) Amanda Greever Thunder Road is only 90 minutes, and if your heart can handle a bit of emotional wreckage, it needs to go on your watch list. EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
Captain Marvel (2019) Amanda Greever Captain Marvel satisfying but takes a minute to hit its stride EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
Triple Frontier (2019) Amanda Greever Triple Frontier goes beyond the heist adventure EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
Five Feet Apart (2019) Amanda Greever Sure, it's sappy and maybe the storyline is overplayed, but this film hits you in that squishy place where your emotions live. EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
Us (2019) Amanda Greever Us succeeds, but it's almost as if Peele is trying too hard EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2019
Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Amanda Greever While Crazy Rich Asians might be mired in melodrama and unoriginal story lines, it's not a bad movie. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2019
The Meg (2018) Amanda Greever Man, I can't wait to see this one again on a lazy weekend. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2019
Coco (2017) Amanda Greever Coco is an amazing cinematic experience, and I have little doubt that it will be revered ultimately as one of the greatest achievements in film history, not just animated film history. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2019
Lady Bird (2017) Amanda Greever The relationship between mothers and daughters is what's at the heart of Lady Bird, and while cringe-worthy at times, it's a beautiful, poignant story that resonated with me. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2019
Muppets Most Wanted (2014) Amanda Greever Children and adults will undoubtedly enjoy the film. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2019
Divergent (2014) Amanda Greever Divergent doesn't have the same mass appeal, but it doesn't make it any less impactful than the best that this genre - the science fiction genre, not the young adult subgenre - has to offer. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2019
Lucy (2014) Amanda Greever Lucy might leave you scratching your head, but it's a wild ride. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2019
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) Amanda Greever Bottom line, this isn't a good movie. EDIT
Posted Feb 5, 2019
Gone Girl (2014) Amanda Greever Pike seems to relish each delicious twist and turn the character takes. She is extremely entertaining to watch. EDIT
