Posted Sep 3, 2020
B- I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020) Jason Escamilla An artsy slow burn that demands patience during uncertainty but will deliver through its spell-binding performances and an unusually mysterious and ambiguous narrative. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2020
C The One and Only Ivan (2020) Jason Escamilla Sweet, charming, contrived, and for kids only. EDIT
Posted Aug 22, 2020
B- Unhinged (2020) Jason Escamilla While Unhinged is entertaining due to a psycho-violent performance by Russell Crow and a likable protagonist, it has no new substance to offer after its intriguing setup. EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2020
A- Yes, God, Yes (2019) Jason Escamilla Say YES to this film! Yes, God, Yes will hold your intrigue with a captivating performance by Natalia Dyer and a beautiful raw direction by Karen Maine! EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2020
B+ Hamilton (2020) Jason Escamilla If you have wanted to see Hamilton live, but could not afford the outrageous ticket prices, the momentum of all these performers is exploding off the screen! EDIT
Posted Jul 2, 2020
B The King of Staten Island (2020) Jason Escamilla Davidson's abrupt impolite bluntness has an energy that will keep audiences engaged because you understand where his emotionally wounded character is coming from. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2020
D Artemis Fowl (2020) Jason Escamilla The best thing about Artemis Fowl is that it is free if you already have Disney+ and if you don't this is certainly not a reason to begin your subscription. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2020
C SCOOB! (2020) Jason Escamilla Scoob! is an underwhelming tedious 90 minutes filled with cheesy dialogue, a silly villain objective, and is ultimately forgettable. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2020
D Bloodshot (2020) Jason Escamilla The script fails to develop Diesel into a relatable protagonist and so you never truly care about all the awful things happening to him in this convoluted plot. EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2020
B The Hunt (2020) Jason Escamilla The unpredictable setup catapults the viewer into immense tension that eventually allows Betty Gilpin to engrossingly conclude the brutality of multiple disposable characters. EDIT
Posted Mar 22, 2020
B I Still Believe (2020) Jason Escamilla Displays the unwavering faith of two people who endure an excruciating hardship. Audience admiration of characters' faith and love may extend past faith-based audiences. EDIT

Posted Feb 21, 2020
C- EMMA. (2020) Jason Escamilla A beautiful-looking film that lacks a compelling narrative due to interactions with mass amounts of characters who lack depth to anyone not familiar with the source material. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2020
B- Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Jason Escamilla Despite a predictable plot and an annoying antagonist, Sonic's loneliness allow him to be charmingly relatable and the zany plot will entertain kids, while amusing Sega fans. EDIT
Posted Feb 12, 2020
B- Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Jason Escamilla A consistently humorous comic book flick (although a bit repetitive) and a little longer than it needed to be. EDIT
Posted Feb 9, 2020
D The Rhythm Section (2020) Jason Escamilla Fails to get the audience to care for the protagonist or her family (as we only see them through silent flashbacks), resulting in her revenge motive feeling fake. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2020
C- The Turning (2020) Jason Escamilla Meaninglessly creepy with no answers until the very end and the final answer isn't a great payout either, as it's confusingly vague and underwhelming. EDIT
Posted Jan 23, 2020
B- Assassin 33 A.D. (2020) Jason Escamilla Despite feeling noticeably contrived, the premise should appeal to a niche Christian SciFi loving audience who can expect fun action and an entertaining fast-paced story. EDIT
Posted Jan 23, 2020
A- Weathering With You (2019) Jason Escamilla The story, the visuals, and music are all beautiful; the fantasy premise uniquely shows these characters becoming close to each other . EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
A- Richard Jewell (2019) Jason Escamilla Richard Jewell is entertainingly informative as the screenplay effectively will cause you to feel sympathetic for everything Richard Jewell and his mother go through. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2020
B 1917 (2019) Jason Escamilla Despite having a thin story, the reason why you should go see 1917 is because of the amazing cinematography. EDIT
Posted Jan 11, 2020
A- Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Jason Escamilla Spectacularly grows its already-developed characters, delivers on epic action, and concludes a saga that has spanned decades. EDIT
Posted Dec 19, 2019
A- Ford v Ferrari (2019) Jason Escamilla The protagonists are likable, have charismatic chemistry, and are portrayed brilliantly. You will love to hate the well crafted antagonist who creates obstacles for our leads. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2019
B- Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Jason Escamilla The Rock imitating Devito and Hart imitating Glover is hilariously on point, but after the second act the comedy dissolves into physical harm humor and a predictable story. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2019
A+ Marriage Story (2019) Jason Escamilla One of the best films of 2019; A dose of heavy, yet effective, melancholy reality that is all well-acted and directed/written beautifully by Noah Baumbach. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2019
C- The Irishman (2019) Jason Escamilla 3.5 hours of your life you will never get back. EDIT
Posted Nov 19, 2019

Posted Nov 14, 2019
B- Doctor Sleep (2019) Jason Escamilla Fans of The Shining and horror audiences who are patient enough to endure the slow setup will appreciate this tale, whose highlights are fleshed out villains and nostalgia. EDIT
Posted Nov 8, 2019
D Playing With Fire (2019) Jason Escamilla One of the most uncreative films, relying on the most obvious jokes that are repeatedly used in a mostly single location. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2019
C+ Rattlesnake (2019) Jason Escamilla Rattlesnake tries its best to hold its entertaining setup but the bizarre premise mostly traps itself from ending in any type of a compelling manner. EDIT
Posted Oct 27, 2019
B The True Adventures of Wolfboy (2019) Jason Escamilla Features a compelling setup and a likable protagonist who goes on a journey that slightly meanders, but comes full circle as it reaches its climax. EDIT
Posted Oct 26, 2019
C+ Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Jason Escamilla Best Terminator since T2? That isn't a very great compliment. Dark Fate features decent action and visual effects, but it's barely a passable story that lacks a genuine heart. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2019
A- Knives Out (2019) Jason Escamilla Knives Out is a WhoDunIt thriller with an outstanding cast, an enthralling mystery, and it is directed/communicated exhilaratingly well. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2019
B- Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Jason Escamilla Despite a predictable plot and underdeveloped supporting characters, this sequel may be admired by families with kids who enjoy Jolie's performance and the action adventure. EDIT
Posted Oct 17, 2019
A- Fractured (2019) Jason Escamilla Fractured is one of the most emotionally tense films of 2019, featuring an intriguing premise (although admittingly implausible) and a likable lead helmed by Sam Worthington. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
D Jexi (2019) Jason Escamilla Jexi may have worked as a funny short film but repeatedly using the same jokes result in a lukewarm underwhelming experience. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
C The Addams Family (2019) Jason Escamilla Unfortunately, the plot is a nightmare- and not in a positive Addams-Family type of way. It's all over the place, lacking focus and not a single element of it is riveting. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
D Little Monsters (2019) Jason Escamilla Never thought this disposable comedy would see the light of day outside of the SXSW film festival; the comedy is lackluster and the characters are awfully hollow. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2019
A Parasite (2019) Jason Escamilla Best Movie of 2019; Parasite has a unique creative story, characters that feel real, and an underlying message about high and low classes, conveyed thrillingly. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2019
C Jojo Rabbit (2019) Jason Escamilla Jojo Rabbit features satire throughout the script that failed to make me laugh consistently. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2019
A- Joker (2019) Jason Escamilla "Joker" is an effective slow burn that takes an iconic villain, humanizes him, and gives the audience an insight to mental illness. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
A- Dolemite Is My Name (2019) Jason Escamilla The biggest strength of "Dolemite Is My Name" is seeing the strong resilient character never give up! EDIT
