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 Nov 19, 2019

Posted Nov 7, 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

Posted Oct 6, 2019
