5/5 Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (2019) Russ Burlingame The bar for admission may be a little high⁠ - especially if you haven't seen Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, a lot of the jokes will miss for you⁠. If you understand what you're watching, you're bound to love it. EDIT

5/5 Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Brandon Davis If you liked the first Zombieland, you're going to enjoy Zombieland: Double Tap -- it's an absolute blast, has non-stop action and heart, and gets two big bloody zombie thumbs up. EDIT

4/5 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Matthew Aguilar Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is a delightful tale of humor, heart, and that trademark Disney magic, and you won't regret returning to this world once more. EDIT

3/5 Sweetheart (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh Clemons' engaging performance is the film's biggest strength, as it finds inventive ways to blend tropes to keep the audience engaged in its thrills. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
2/5 Gemini Man (2019) Kofi Outlaw The lure of Will Smith and the visual spectacle may be worth a matinee price to action fans, but other than that, Gemini Man will soon be lost in the same limbo it was stuck in for decades, before it was pulled out for this failed attempt. EDIT

4/5 El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Kofi Outlaw If El Camino had aired as episodes of Breaking Bad instead of a feature film, no one would know the difference. Whether that's a bad or good thing will depend on the viewer. Its a reminder that the world of Breaking Bad is still unfolding. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
4/5 The Addams Family (2019) Charlie Ridgely This one is for those who know they're a little different and maybe need a little reminder that being strange is a good thing. This movie is for the Wednesday Addams in all of us, just waiting for the chance to get a little weird. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
3/5 Mister America (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh While it's humorous and entertaining throughout, Mister America is a tremendous victory for Heidecker, Turkington, and On Cinema fans for its existence alone. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
4/5 Wrinkles the Clown (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh Sheds light not only on one of Florida's weirdest viral sensations, but also offers a fascinating exploration of folklore in the digital age. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
5/5 Promare (2019) Nick Valdez Constantly upstaging itself with each new scene, each performance, and twists and turns in the plot, Promare is going to go down as one of Studio Trigger's finest projects - if not the best. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
4/5 Abominable (2019) Charlie Ridgely Once you get wrapped up in Abominable's loving embrace, there's a good chance you won't want to leave. Let's hope it has the opportunity to become the franchise it deserves to be. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
2/5 In the Tall Grass (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh Despite having an abundance of promising ideas, it fails to decide what direction it wants to pursue, leaving everyone lost. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2019
2/5 In the Shadow of the Moon (2019) Charlie Ridgely What starts as a thrilling battle cry of a capable filmmaker's vision ends as nothing more than a disappointing bellow, destined to be lost in the vast reaches of an endless streaming library. EDIT
Posted Sep 22, 2019
1/5 Rambo: Last Blood (2019) Kofi Outlaw Last Blood offers no room for humor, intentional or not, and is drab, depressing, and wholly disappointing. Do yourself a favor: just rewatch Rambo and tell yourself the franchise ended there to spare yourself the PTSD. EDIT
Posted Sep 21, 2019
4/5 Between Two Ferns: The Movie (2019) Adam Barnhardt Clocking in at an hour and 22 minutes, Between Two Ferns: The Movie is a desirable watch for anyone looking for a quick set of chuckles. If you're a fan of the web series or Galifianakis, it'll be hard to find a better performance than this. EDIT
Posted Sep 20, 2019
3/5 Tôkyô gûru 'S' (2019) Megan Peters All of the unneeded side stories clutter the otherwise fun film, but fans of Tokyo Ghoul will still leave theaters impressed. This sequel proves the series' live-action ventures are its best adaptations to date. EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2019
2/5 3 From Hell (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh What was likely meant to be the series' greatest hits feels more like a cover band going through the motions of a formerly engaging franchise. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2019
3/5 It: Chapter Two (2019) Brandon Davis Certain story points should have been expanded upon rather than being scattered across the second act, but director Andy Muschietti and company have crafted something fans of the first will get a kick out of. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
5/5 Joker (2019) Brandon Davis Whether Joker is a social commentary on issues such as poverty or mental illness, a new mysterious take on the best known DC Comics villain, or another unforgettable piece of cinema by Martin Scorsese, you'll need to see to believe it. EDIT
Posted Aug 31, 2019
5/5 Kingdom (2019) Nick Valdez There's just so much palpable fun and excitement dripping from every scene. Kingdom's live-action film is so well done there will most likely be a huge new wave of audiences seeking out Yasuhisa Hara's original work. EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2019
5/5 Steven Universe: The Movie (2019) Rollin Bishop Steven Universe: The Movie is an incredible work of art that combines eclectic, amazing musical numbers with striking illustrations and breathtaking animation to outdo anything the franchise has attempted before. EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2019
4/5 The Banana Splits Movie (2019) Russ Burlingame The Banana Splits Movie will be controversial -- especially among those who still have a fondness for the original series -- but it mostly sticks the landing, buoyed by a great cast, script and crew. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
3/5 Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling (2018) Rollin Bishop Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling is good, albeit sometimes clumsy in its execution. The special succeeds in a number of ways, while overall being uneven with some jokes like poorly paid animation staff landing better than others. EDIT
Posted Aug 9, 2019
4/5 Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh Finds just the right balance between goofy teenage antics and full-blown nightmare fuel to delight fans both young and old. EDIT
Posted Aug 8, 2019
4/5 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Brandon Davis Leave your logic at the door if you want to enjoy Hobbs & Shaw. Gravity and real world rules don't apply in this movie nor should they, which the Fast & Furious franchise has now proved several times over. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2019
4/5 The Lion King (2019) Brandon Davis The Lion King was not a movie which needed to be remade, but its flawless visuals and impressive voice cast's efforts justify its existence. The emotional punches come as expected, and the musical cues carry it through. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
4/5 Midsommar (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh A harrowing and hypnotizing descent into madness, despite landing at an expected destination for the genre. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
5/5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Brandon Davis Marvel Studios is showing off, following up Endgame with moments that immediately hook an audience for more both with a single character and their expansive world. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
2/5 Child's Play (2019) Kofi Outlaw Child's Play would've been better off as an original sci-fi/horror creation, and probably would've earned more acclaim on its own merits. Still, its not the complete disaster that many predicted EDIT
Posted Jun 25, 2019
3/5 Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Kofi Outlaw Annabelle Comes Home falls square in the middle of the franchise trilogy. It's much better than the muddled and schlocky first installment, but never comes close to matching the intensity and polish of the sequel, Annabelle: Creation. EDIT
Posted Jun 25, 2019
3/5 Shaft (2019) Kofi Outlaw Shaft (2019) is one of the more fun "passing of the torch" sequels/reboots that are so in vogue right now. It's definitely the kind of fun matinee screenings were made for. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
3/5 The Dead Don't Die (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh Jim Jarmusch offers one of the more unique zombie comedies in recent years, with its all-star cast barely salvaging the mixed bag of humor and horror. EDIT
Posted Jun 13, 2019
2/5 Men in Black: International (2019) Charlie Ridgely Sony really stuck to the adage "bigger is better," and in the case of the Men in Black franchise, nothing could be further from the truth. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2019
3/5 Dark Phoenix (2019) Brandon Davis Dark Phoenix is not the conclusion fans of the X-Men franchise might have been hoping for and it doesn't make much of an effort to be. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2019
3/5 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Brandon Davis All things considered, the movie is an immersive escape to another world. It's not going to be the next Avatar despite being an equally massive idea, but Alita builds its own world for a second adventure that may get audiences more invested. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
5/5 How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) Charlie Ridgely The story is nearly flawless, with enough emotion and adventure to satisfy anyone in the audience, and the incredibly detailed animation is some of the best we've seen on the big screen. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
5/5 Fighting With My Family (2019) Matthew Aguilar Fighting with My Family beautifully captures the spirit of a family brought together by wrestling, and you'll find something to smile about whether you're a wrestling fan or not. And, if you are a fan, you will enjoy it even more. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
4/5 Captain Marvel (2019) Brandon Davis In welcoming a female hero to the big screen as the centerpiece of her own film, Marvel Studios has an expansive and fun hit on its hands. Captain Marvel offers up a complex, heartfelt tale which will leave audiences feeling inspired and satisfied. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
4/5 Triple Frontier (2019) Charlie Ridgely I didn't expect too much from Triple Frontier. I can underestimate Netflix movies all I want, but J.C. Chandor uses this film to show me, and the world, that he's truly a force to be reckoned with, and I'll be damned if I second guess him again. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
4/5 Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn (2019) Nick Valdez Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn is a harrowing exploration into a serene, yet unnerving universe. Though it may not be as enthralling for those on their second journey, the film can still be a fulfilling voyage. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
5/5 Us (2019) Kofi Outlaw Us is Jordan Peele's proud and confident declaration that his talent and success is far from being a one-time fluke. There are few filmmakers who can so effectively create entire worlds in their own unique signature. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
5/5 Shazam! (2019) Brandon Davis This might just be the most fun audiences have at the movies this year, and it's proof that DC has another major winner on its hands. Shazam! is, quite simply, lightning in a bottle. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
3/5 Hellboy (2019) Adam Barnhardt For all of its shortcomings -- like weak script and editing -- Hellboy manages to provide a fun experience full of bizarre fights and action that you won't get anywhere else. In a world of comic-book content, it stands out, for better or worse. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
4/5 Missing Link (2019) Charlie Ridgely No shortage of fun to be had with this movie, but the overall plot does leave a little to be desired, especially for adults. The third act of Missing Link tries desperately to teach lessons about friendship and humanity in the most obvious ways. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
5/5 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Brandon Davis The final movie in Marvel's Infinity Saga is a masterpiece. It's an absolute spectacle. It's a love letter to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Laughs. Tears. Applause. Avengers: Endgame gets all of it. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
4/5 Tolkien (2019) Jamie Lovett Tolkien ends with the author writing down the opening words of The Hobbit for the first time. It's a film that revels in the same values that Tolkien's own work does - love, friendship, journeys, quest. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
3/5 Aladdin (2019) Charlie Ridgely Aladdin is certainly less than the sum of its parts, but the parts are all so fantastic that it doesn't always matter. This is a fun adventure and a great time. Not exactly a whole new world, but certainly one that I don't mind journeying to again. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
3/5 Brightburn (2019) Kofi Outlaw Brightburn is a fine matinee viewing for hardcore fans of superheroes, horror, or both. It's good spectacle, and just that -- especially if you haven't seen the spoiler-filled trailers. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
5/5 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Megan Peters As Godzilla: King of the Monsters combines its stunning aesthetic with a relevant eco-centric message, the movie carves a niche into the Godzilla franchise that's completely worthwhile. The best Godzilla film made in Hollywood without question. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
2/5 Ma (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh Octavia Spencer barely salvages this tonally uneven thriller that feels both too absurd and too restrained at the same time. EDIT
