Rating Title/Year Author
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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
Posted May 29, 2019
4/5 Creep 2 (2017) Patrick Cavanaugh Manages to continue the blend of humor and horror that made the first film a success while offering new emotional twists of the macabre subject matter. EDIT
Posted May 19, 2019
3/5 Nightmare Cinema (2018) Patrick Cavanaugh A mixed bag of horrors will offer at least a little bit of excitement for genre fans, no matter what your tastes. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2019
3/5 Apostle (2018) Patrick Cavanaugh Just barely delivers on its creepy folklore with its various twists and turns failing to fulfill its potential. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2019
4/5 Overlord (2018) Patrick Cavanaugh Draws you in with its wartime drama before unleashing full-blown monster mayhem. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2019
3/5 Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) Patrick Cavanaugh The blend of family-friendly movie monsters is sure to inspire a love of horror in young audiences. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2019
4/5 Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh An entertaining ride with engaging performances that is held back by its indecisive tone. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2019
3/5 Greta (2018) Patrick Cavanaugh Huppert's captivating performance just barely manages to elevate the film above the limitations of its predictable narrative. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2019
4/5 () Patrick Cavanaugh Ant Timpson's directorial debut is dark, deranged, and unexpectedly heartfelt. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2019
2/5 The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Patrick Cavanaugh Squanders the potential of the iconic supernatural figure by repeatedly offering nothing more than standard horror tropes. EDIT
