Rating Title/Year Author
C Outside the Wire (2021) Sean Chandler A promising premise let down by a plot with no one to root for. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2021
C Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) Sean Chandler Feels like a bad film adaptation of an SNL skit, but the skit doesn't exist. The jokes fell flat a lot more than than they landed for me. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2021
B+ Bloody Hell (2020) Sean Chandler Highly effective genre-blender. Manages to keep you engaged and entertained from beginning to end. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2021
B PG: Psycho Goreman (2020) Sean Chandler An INSANE ride! Definitely not for everyone. It certainly went too far at times for me, but I was also laughing out loud for most of the runtime. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2021
B Run Hide Fight (2020) Sean Chandler If you can get past the admittedly harsh premise, the film is executed with enough skill to deliver the thrills you want from the genre. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2021
B- The Little Things (2021) Sean Chandler Effective enough serial killer thriller. Definitely feels very familiar, but it has just enough star power and slickness to get by. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2021
B Batman: Soul of the Dragon (2021) Sean Chandler Fun, outside the box, genre bending Batman tale. Loses some steam in the second half, but still a worthwhile diversion. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2021
B Willy's Wonderland (2021) Sean Chandler A wild and weird B movie. It's not as creative as one would hope from the premise, but still a fun time. EDIT
Posted Feb 17, 2021
C+ The Devil All the Time (2020) Sean Chandler While I understand why this movie would be appealing to some, I found myself respecting the craft more than enjoying the experience. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2020
C Hubie Halloween (2020) Sean Chandler It's harmless but forgettable. Sandler is using the same bag of tricks he's been using for over 20 years, but it is better than most recent Happy Madison films. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2020
B+ Freaky (2020) Sean Chandler Freaky is a welcome addition to the slasher genre. Vince Vaughn is the obvious standout, but Kathryn Newton is also great. I had a blast with it. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2020
B- Vanguard (2020) Sean Chandler While this isn't classic Jackie Chan, it is a fast paced and fun action film for fans of the genre. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2020
A Love and Monsters (2020) Sean Chandler A post-apocalyptic monster movie with a surprisingly large amount of emotion. For me, this film consistently over-delivered on every single front. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2020
B- Tremors: Shrieker Island (2020) Sean Chandler Tremors: Shrieker Island is not great cinema, but it is a fun creature feature. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2020
C+ The Babysitter: Killer Queen (2020) Sean Chandler It follows all of the beats of the first films, but lacks what made the first hold together. There's also a Samara Weaving size hole in it's center. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2020
B Tenet (2020) Sean Chandler Tenet features all of the big ideas and spectacle you want from a Christopher Nolan film, but it's also far more confusing than it needed to be. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2020
B Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) Sean Chandler Bill & Ted did their number one job: they made me laugh. But the whole thing could have been a lot more fun if it wasn't bogged down by so many unnecessary plot lines. EDIT
Posted Aug 28, 2020
B- Unhinged (2020) Sean Chandler If you watch it as a ludicrous slasher film taking place on the road, there's some fun chaos to be found. Just don't expect any actual commentary on road rage or mental health. EDIT
Posted Aug 28, 2020
B The New Mutants (2020) Sean Chandler If you ever wanted The Breakfast Club as a horror film set in the X-Men universe, you now have it. It may not fully live up to the potential of that sentence, but I had a good time with it. EDIT
Posted Aug 28, 2020
B My Bloody Valentine (2009) Sean Chandler Overall this movie gave me what I wanted out of a slasher film. EDIT
Posted Apr 24, 2020
D The Grudge (2020) Sean Chandler An instant front runner for worst movie of the year. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
C+ Dolittle (2020) Sean Chandler There are moments of fun, but this is an otherwise disappointing start to Robert Downey Jr.'s post-MCU career. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
A- Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Sean Chandler The hyper-active, chaotic comic book movie I didn't know that I wanted. The cherry on top is the top notch practical stunt work and fights. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
B Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Sean Chandler While it does trade-in the video game franchise's lively environments for road trip cliches, Sonic and Jim Carrey provide plenty of fun for the whole family. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
B Onward (2020) Sean Chandler While the plotting has some serious issues, it has all the laughs and heart you expect from a Pixar film. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
A- The Invisible Man (2020) Sean Chandler Leigh Whannell continues his hot streak with another fantastic thriller. The performances are great, and the scares come from real world fears rather than jump scares. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
B+ The Way Back (2020) Sean Chandler Gavin O'Connor delivers another solid sports drama, and Ben Affleck offers his best and most personal performance yet. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
B Bloodshot (2020) Sean Chandler While it may not be the most memorable film based on a comic book, it provided enough excitement and energy to keep me entertained for the runtime. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2020
B+ Bad Boys for Life (2020) Sean Chandler The boys are back and better than ever. The film delivers all the action and humor fans of the genre want, but surprisingly it has a lot of heart too. EDIT
Posted Jan 17, 2020
B Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Sean Chandler It provides all the spectacle, adventure, and reveals you expect from a Star Wars finale, but with so much crammed into one film, it's not as satisfying as it should be. EDIT
Posted Dec 18, 2019
B- 21 Bridges (2019) Sean Chandler It may follow a predictable formula, but it offers enough thrills to please genre fans. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
B- Line of Duty (2019) Sean Chandler While the tone was all over the place, the movie delivered the entertainment and experience I was hoping for. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
A- Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Sean Chandler If you're able to accept the bold choices the movie is built around, this is a welcome follow up to Terminator 2. EDIT
Posted Nov 14, 2019
B+ Doctor Sleep (2019) Sean Chandler A solid continuation of The Shining with deep rich themes and expanded world building. EDIT
Posted Nov 14, 2019
B Midway (2019) Sean Chandler Midway doesn't do anything new with the genre, but it does provide what the target audience wants and I enjoyed what it had to offer. EDIT
Posted Nov 14, 2019
C Charlie's Angels (2019) Sean Chandler While it may be over-flowing with energy; the humor, action, and story all fell flat for me. EDIT
Posted Nov 14, 2019
B+ Frozen II (2019) Sean Chandler A worthy follow up with a deeper mythology, a bigger scope, and some great character moments. EDIT
Posted Nov 14, 2019
C+ Playing With Fire (2019) Sean Chandler It's harmless family entertainment, but there's not a single joke or plot point in the entire film you won't see coming. There's also a surprisingly small amount of firefighting given the premise. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2019
B+ Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Sean Chandler It may not be as fresh or original as the first, but it's just as fun. A worthy follow up. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
B Rambo: Last Blood (2019) Sean Chandler Feels more like Stallone's hard R version of Taken than a Rambo movie, but it the third act absolutely delivers the mayhem and vengeance genre fans want. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
B+ Jojo Rabbit (2019) Sean Chandler A bold and ambitious dramedy about the absurdity of hate. It worked better for me as a comedy than as a drama. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
B- In the Shadow of the Moon (2019) Sean Chandler It may not add much to the individual genres it blends together, but it kept my attention from beginning to end. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
B+ Ad Astra (2019) Sean Chandler In a market dominated by blockbusters with elements of sci-fi, it's refreshing to have a thoughtful, character driven true science fiction drama. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
B+ Abominable (2019) Sean Chandler The basic plot may be familiar, but the execution makes all the difference. This is a heart felt and funny family film. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
B+ VFW (2019) Sean Chandler It's like an Expendables movie directed John Carpenter except with a lot more mutants, drugs, insanity, and heart. If that sentence doesn't scare you off, you'll have a ton of fun with this movie. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
A- Knives Out (2019) Sean Chandler A fun and funny whodunit which manages deliver all the classic troupes of the genre while still feeling fresh and new. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
A The Terminator (1984) Sean Chandler A fantastic blend of horror, action, and sci-fi. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
A Joker (2019) Sean Chandler Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix successfully make a compelling comic book movie which focuses on character over spectacle. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
A- First Blood (1982) Sean Chandler While the sequels may have tarnished it's reputation, Rambo's original adventure is a great action-thriller and character study. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2019
B- It: Chapter Two (2019) Sean Chandler The film is impeccably cast and the scale is massive. However, because of a far too repetitious middle act, it doesn't fully live up to the original. EDIT
