Rating Title/Year Author
B+ Us (2019) Sherin Nicole This is a blood soaked fable with white rabbits you can't help but follow down -- and it's a thrilling way to fall. Peele excels at the shocks and reversals Hitchcock and Serling would cheer for. Yet he does it his way, and his way is so very good. EDIT

C- Wonder Park (2019) Sherin Nicole It owes a lot to Inside Out...but I'm reminded of the aphorism: Good artists copy, great artists steal. Maybe Wonder Park should've stolen more and been less of a wide-eyed imitation. It's sweet but it's not satisfying. EDIT

6/10 Captain Marvel (2019) Sherin Nicole It's cool...I mean, it's enjoyable...I mean, it's pleasant, but I feel like the emotional impact you take away from the movie relies on the emotional connection you bring into the theater with you EDIT

C- What Men Want (2019) Sherin Nicole This cast is capable of serving up a delicious rom-com that simultaneously takes down misogyny without smudging its lipstick, yet even with a cast and a soundtrack this good, What Men Want never finds its rhythm. EDIT

D Miss Bala (2019) Sherin Nicole It's a good time but it's not a good movie. EDIT

8/10 Doragon bôru chô: Burorî -- Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018) Julian Lytle Broly sets up what could be the next phase of this Super era. If you've ever in your life loved anime and especially if you've watched Dragon Ball, go see this movie while it's in theaters and enjoy yourself as much as Goku enjoys fighting. EDIT

B Doragon bôru chô: Burorî -- Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018) Sherin Nicole Dragon Ball Super: Broly makes you feel every emotion a full season of the series would. And it's a fightgasm of full on Dragon Ball action. And there's fusion... EDIT

C Glass (2019) Sherin Nicole I liked it but...Glass needed an editor. Someone to dial it back, give it focus, and help to find the truelife moments that make good comics and good comic book movies work. EDIT

C Aquaman (2018) Sherin Nicole I like Aquaman. I'm not saying it's a great movie or that it's the savior of the DC cinematic universe, but it is a lot of fun. EDIT

C- The Darkest Minds (2018) Sherin Nicole Something's off about the storytelling in The Darkest Minds. Primarily, the world building is illogical and lacks cohesion. It's a fast food movie -- kind of bad but kind of good, and on a late night with your friends it'll be kind of tasty. EDIT

C+ Atomic Blonde (2017) Sherin Nicole Atomic Blonde is like an amusement park ride, the adrenaline is high and you'll have a good time but ultimately it's over and you're off to find a bigger thrill. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2019
B Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Sherin Nicole We have such feels when we watch Infinity War because Marvel has earned our emotions. They built these characters, they developed our connection to them and we've seen them struggle with heroics to always come out on the right side. EDIT

D Bright (2017) Sherin Nicole ...there's a bunch of shooting and stabbing, explosions, and general bloodiness. It's all very dark (literally) and -- I imagine for the non-geeky -- Bright is as hard to follow as it is to see. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2019
B+ Incredibles 2 (2018) Sherin Nicole The second part to the Incredibles saga has just as much emotion as the first but the action and performances have powered up. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2019
C+ Smallfoot (2018) Sherin Nicole This is a fun, although imperfect, kids movie that actually has something to say about the way we treat those we see as "other". That alone makes it worth the ticket, but there's also a hip-hop opus by Common that's too good to miss. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2019
C+ Ocean's 8 (2018) Sherin Nicole It's a fun ride and these women are super dope but the movie doesn't quite get you high. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2019
C- Hotel Artemis (2018) Sherin Nicole It's kinda like George A. Romero wrote an action-thriller in John Wick's world. Only not that good. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2019
C- Destination Wedding (2018) Sherin Nicole ...a dumpster dive into two garbage people who turn out to be shabby chic. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2019
B Okja (2017) Sherin Nicole Okja is a "grimm" fairytale with all the sense-of-wonder and dark consequences of those bloodsoaked originals EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2019
A- Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Sherin Nicole You'll hear people say Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is good and you'll be happy to hear it. Good doesn't quite cover it though. This movie is so well done [it left me stunned]. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2019
C The Oath (2018) Sherin Nicole The Oath is a horror movie disguised as political satire and you should watch it -- if only to get the conversation across the table started. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2019
C- Kin (2018) Sherin Nicole It's a little bit Terminator, a little bit coming of age, so very promising, and unfortunately a lot of disappointment. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2019
B Una mujer fantástica (2017) Sherin Nicole A Fantastic Woman is a reaffirmation of unapologetic womanhood. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2019
B- Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Sherin Nicole Bohemian Rhapsody is one of those films that will either make you ecstatic or thoroughly annoyed. For me it's a joy. Yet I do get the annoyance. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2019
D Robin Hood (2018) Sherin Nicole This isn't a horrible movie -- it's actually engaging for most of two hours -- but it's just so silly. Even in the harshest moments you feel like there's a punchline coming. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2019
B Widows (2018) Sherin Nicole This is an intense film with a plot like a snake; who survives and who gets bitten depends on where the next twist turns. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2019
B+ If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) Sherin Nicole Barry Jenkins has created an affecting dreamscape; ephemeral yet all too real. If Beale Street Could Talk throws you off balance while sucking you in. EDIT
