Posted Jan 9, 2020

Posted Dec 26, 2019

Posted Dec 16, 2019
3.5/5 Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Allison Rose The whole team returns for the sequel and their chemistry is even better than the first time. Johnson does a great De Vito impression and he and Hart makes a great duo. EDIT
Posted Dec 12, 2019

Posted Nov 27, 2019
4.5/5 Queen & Slim (2019) Allison Rose While Queen & Slim is a raw and shocking commentary on our society these days, I am not sure it will click with general audiences. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
3.5/5 Angel Has Fallen (2019) Allison Rose Nick Nolte is perfectly cast as Mike's "off the grid - antigovernment" father. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
3/5 Knives Out (2019) Allison Rose With a star-studded cast and written and directed by filmmaker, Rian Johnson, Knives Out should have been a no brainer hit. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2019

Posted Nov 6, 2019
3.5/5 Universal Soldier (1992) Allison Rose What Emmerich does do is present some very good action sequences which is probably why he was offered the opportunity to direct Independence Day. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2019
3.5/5 Doctor Sleep (2019) Allison Rose McGregor always gives a wonderful performance whether he is a song and dance man or if, in this case, he is a tortured and broken man trying to outrun his past. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2019
3.5/5 Red Heat (1988) Allison Rose It is fairly obvious why Schwarzenegger was chosen to play the role of Danko in Red Heat. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2019
3.5/5 Charlie's Angels (2000) Allison Rose Barrymore is the best of the three here but the group has great chemistry and they work well as a cohesive unit. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2019
4.5/5 Scarface (1983) Allison Rose Pacino is a brilliant actor and his portrayal of a Cuban immigrant in Scarface is a perfect example of his work. EDIT
Posted Oct 26, 2019

Posted Oct 24, 2019
4.5/5 Galaxy Quest (1999) Allison Rose While Galaxy Quest starts off like any other parody, it morphs into a truly human story about people, their humanity, their fragility, and their insecurities. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2019

Posted Oct 15, 2019
4.5/5 The Secret Life of Pets (2016) Allison Rose In a summer of sequels and lackluster movies, this film is a stand out in the crowd and once again reminds us why Illumination Entertainment is a force to be reckoned with in the world of animation. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
2/5 The Adderall Diaries (2015) Allison Rose With terrific source material, The Adderall Diaries should have been a deeply moving introspective look at various views of the same memories, but, sadly, falls short. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
4.5/5 The Legend of Tarzan (2016) Allison Rose The cinematography (in The Legend of Tarzan) is spectacular and makes you want to hop on a plane and fly to Africa. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
3/5 The BFG (2016) Allison Rose The fantasy world of the "dream tree" is magical though and gives The BFG a sense of whimsy and playfulness it desperately needs. Unfortunately, those moments are too few to make a significant difference to the overall story. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
4.5/5 Shrek (2001) Allison Rose With the perfect blend of storytelling, animation, and music this is one movie (Shrek) the whole family can enjoy! EDIT

Posted Oct 3, 2019
2/5 The Other Side of the Door (2016) Allison Rose If you want to be scared out of your mind, I suggest you choose a different film - Paranormal Activity perhaps. The other side of the door was an idea that had some potential, but it definitely doesn't live up to it. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
4.5/5 Mean Girls (2004) Allison Rose This is an all-star cast at the beginnings of their careers and their talent is evident even at this early stage. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
4.5/5 The Innocents (2016) Allison Rose The Innocents (Les Innocentes) is a masterful look at how our experiences shape and change us. The messages of perseverance and hope in a time of despair are powerful. EDIT
