4/5 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Tessa Smith Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is a visually stunning, but also very dark and violent. While it is a heartwarming mother/daughter tale, be cautious when taking young kids. EDIT

1.5/5 Dark Phoenix (2019) Tessa Smith Dark Phoenix seemed to be really phoned in - with several aspects. It could have been so good, but it fell flat. And put me to sleep. EDIT

5/5 It: Chapter Two (2019) Tessa Smith Pennywise proves that he is what nightmares are made of -- quite literally. With the perfect mix of gruesome, psychological, and pure terror, IT Chapter Two is a must see! EDIT

2.5/5 The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019) Tessa Smith Yes, there were some hilarious moments in Angry Birds 2, but overall, it was a MEH movie at best. Funnier than the first, but still not great. EDIT

4.5/5 Brightburn (2019) Tessa Smith Full of gore, crazy deaths, and jump scares! Brightburn is absolutely brilliant. And that ending... a must watch for horror fans! EDIT
Posted Sep 1, 2019
5/5 Rocketman (2019) Tessa Smith When I say Rocketman is not your typical biopic, I mean it is not your typical biopic. A mix of real life events and fantasy -- and trust me when I say, it works perfectly. EDIT

3/5 The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) Tessa Smith The Secret Life of Pets 2 is fun for the whole family. Will I watch it over and over again? Probably not. But my kids will. EDIT

3/5 Pet Sematary (2019) Tessa Smith The 2019 version of Pet Sematary is enough like the original, and enough of it's own thing, to make it more than worth a watch for horror fans! EDIT

2/5 Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling (2018) Tessa Smith Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling tries to be relevant for 2019, and in doing so, it ruined the fun and humor that the original had. EDIT

4.5/5 Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) Tessa Smith The opening scene of Dora and the Lost City of Gold immediately put a beaming smile on my face -- and it never faded. Easily the best movie of the summer! EDIT

4/5 Descendants 3 (2019) Tessa Smith This was truly the perfect ending to the trilogy - however it really makes me sad to know this journey is over. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
4.5/5 Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) Tessa Smith Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is absolutely brilliant. It might not be what you expect, but any movie that can make you laugh that hard at pure violence, deserves an award. EDIT

2.5/5 The Lion King (2019) Tessa Smith Without Timon and Pumbaa, I would rate this movie a lot lower. In fact, if it wasn't for them, I probably would have fallen asleep in the theater. EDIT

Love, Simon (2018) Tessa Smith Love, Simon is a movie that every single parent should watch -- no matter how accepting you are EDIT

Posted Jul 11, 2019
Deadpool (2016) Tessa Smith If you know anything about Deadpool then you know Ryan Reynolds was born to portray him. The casting was incredible. The jokes and references were spot on and I couldn't have been more pleased with this film. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
5/5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Tessa Smith Spider-Man: Far From Home perfectly addresses Avengers: Endgame, and shows us why Mysterio is a villain to be feared. Filled with action, humor, and deceit - it is a MUST SEE! EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2019
3/5 Little (2019) Tessa Smith Little is cute, fun, and worth a watch - but don't expect a masterpiece. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2019
3/5 Us (2019) Tessa Smith Us has a great concept, and tons of potential. However it falls flat and predictable. Still worth a watch though - but don't expect to be wowed. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
2/5 Dumbo (2019) Tessa Smith While visually stunning, the CGI is off, and the story drags on and on. A forgettable film, however, if my kids were rating Dumbo, it would get a much higher score. EDIT
Posted Jun 25, 2019
5/5 Toy Story 4 (2019) Tessa Smith Many people have said we don't need a Toy Story 4 (myself included) but trust me when I say we NEEDED this story. You will laugh, you will cry, you will cheer. A must see! EDIT
Posted Jun 13, 2019
2/5 Always Be My Maybe (2019) Tessa Smith Always Be My Maybe is slow, predictable, and nothing special. Keanu Reeves is by far the best part of the movie - but he doesn't make it worth watching. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
4.5/5 Aladdin (2019) Tessa Smith Aladdin is the perfect combination of the original story & something new. Will Smith crushes it as Genie & Nasim Pedrad's Dalia was a welcome addition to the story. EDIT
Posted May 25, 2019

Posted May 11, 2019
2/5 UglyDolls (2019) Tessa Smith UglyDolls has a cute story, with great lessons for kids, but feels like a not-as-good combination of Trolls and Toy Story. EDIT

Posted May 7, 2019
4.5/5 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Tessa Smith A wild ride that true Guardians of the Galaxy fans will love. Humor, action, and even some heart warming moments make this a must watch! EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
3/5 The Predator (2018) Tessa Smith The cast worked really well together, the jokes totally landed, and the action was almost non-stop. The Predator is a watch at home movie, but still worth a watch. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
5/5 Wonder Woman (2017) Tessa Smith Wonder Woman is easily the best DCEU movie to date. The CGI is sub par, but is forgotten during the epic battles, and thrilling plot points. EDIT

4/5 Venom (2018) Tessa Smith From the comic book nods, to the amazing battles, and on point CGI - comic fans will love Venom. A few plot holes & some humor is a miss, but overall a super fun movie! EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018) Tessa Smith Ant-Man and The Wasp brings the fun, humor, and action - and also some AMAZING girl power! The Wasp shines in her new found role, and Ant-Man is clearly the back up. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4.5/5 Incredibles 2 (2018) Tessa Smith Sure some parts were predictable, but Incredibles 2 was filled with fun - and lessons for parents and children alike. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4.5/5 The Highwaymen (2019) Tessa Smith The Highwaymen tells a compelling story of the law chasing down Bonnie and Clyde. It was a fresh take, and I loved every second of it. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
2/5 Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Tessa Smith The entire cast excelled at their roles in this film, but the story fell flat. This movie needed more Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile deeds. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
3.5/10 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Tessa Smith Don't bother with this one. The acting is sub par & the CGI is hard to look at. Superman was the only saving grace but still not worth watching, unless you need help sleeping. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
6.5/10 Justice League (2017) Tessa Smith Wonder Woman is by far the best part of Justice League! Others are annoying and forgettable and the plot is meh. But that end credit scene makes it worth a watch! EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4.5/5 Captain America: Civil War (2016) Tessa Smith Captain America: Civil War is jam packed with action! It might as well be called Avengers 2.5! EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4/5 The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) Tessa Smith The Kid Who Would Be King teaches children the lesson to have confidence in yourself. Parts are predictable, and some parts might be scary for little ones. EDIT
