B- Midsommar (2019) Sean Chandler This isn't the package under which I want to explore these ideas. EDIT

B+ The Lion King (2019) Sean Chandler The movie exists at Jon Faverau's photorealistic cover of The Lion King. It's the same song. It's the same arrangement. Just sung by someone else. But sung very well. The novelty of seeing this story brought to life in this new format worked for me. EDIT

B Glass (2019) Sean Chandler It really is a good film, but the types of mistakes it makes are at the end of the film. EDIT

B Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Sean Chandler Great acton, a great cast, a great lead character, and a very intriguing world EDIT

B Happy Death Day 2U (2019) Sean Chandler This movie is a mess when it comes to tying the pieces together, but it's also an absolute blast. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019

Posted Jul 9, 2019
C Greta (2018) Sean Chandler This is good set-up for a thriller with some great performances, but the writing and direction don't do it justice. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019

Posted Jul 9, 2019

Posted Jul 9, 2019
C Captive State (2019) Sean Chandler I did not enjoy the process of watching this film. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
B+ Triple Threat (2019) Sean Chandler This movie isn't going to win over non-genre fans. But if you are a martial arts fan, you got to check it out. Though, it's not a classic. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
C+ Us (2019) Sean Chandler This film was incredibly frustrating and disappointing for me. In its efforts to try and transcend the horror-thriller genre brought the whole thing down for me. But I know a lot of people loved it. EDIT

B+ Shazam! (2019) Sean Chandler While it's not an instant classic, it's very entertaining and hits on the right emotional notes. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
A- Dragged Across Concrete (2018) Sean Chandler This is another slow-burn and triumph from the director. Mel Gibson is perfectly cast in this crime-thriller. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
C Dumbo (2019) Sean Chandler While it is not a train-wreck, it's a bland, hallow, and generic adaptation of a Disney classic. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
B Pet Sematary (2019) Sean Chandler This is a well-made adaptation to the source material, but it may be so professional that it becomes a little bit generic. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019

Posted Jul 9, 2019
C+ The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Sean Chandler This is a competently made film. [...] It is not particularly original. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
B Penguins (2019) Sean Chandler This is a cute and informative look at the life of a pair of penguins. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
A- Avengers: Endgame (2019) Sean Chandler To compare to Infinity War, I think that Endgame has the better storyline, the more satisfying conclusion, better conclusion, and much richer emotions. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
B Penguin Highway (2018) Sean Chandler I enjoyed it more than Spirited Away, because it's more straight-forward. This one is weird, but it's also grounded to human emotions. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
B+ Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Sean Chandler I was never bored. It's so much better than it should have been, but it's not as great as it could have been. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
B+ John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum (2019) Sean Chandler This is a movie that absolutely delivers on the most important thing that it must deliver on: the action. But on the story level, this is probably the weakest of the stories in this franchise. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B- Aladdin (2019) Sean Chandler It is definitely not the disaster that a bunch of us were worried it was going to be. But, it's certainly not a whole new world; it's more of the same. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B- Brightburn (2019) Sean Chandler The film has some very effective moments, some solid performances, a good idea, but an execution that does not live up to the idea. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B- Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Sean Chandler This is a film that fixes some of the previously problems in this universe. But, it also makes some new mistakes. But, I was never bored and it absolutely delivers the action, mayhem, and destruction you want from the genre. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B+ Rocketman (2019) Sean Chandler It is very engaging and has fantastic performances. Maybe a little bit too long and not quite as satisfying in the end. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B Late Night (2019) Sean Chandler This is a good, but not great, comedy-drama that I wish they would have worked on the characters just a little bit more. so we could understand where they were coming from, and make the cast as a whole that cast a bit more likeable. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
C Dark Phoenix (2019) Sean Chandler It's not a total disaster. It's a mixed bag from beginning to end. There's nothing particularly great about it. Even in its good ideas, it's tinged with mediocrity. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) Sean Chandler This is a movie that delivered the experience it was supposed to deliver. It's not trying to be the best animated film of the year. It is nice, light-hearted entertainment. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B Men in Black: International (2019) Sean Chandler This is a well-made addition to the franchise with likable, but generic, leads that probably needed to take a few more risks and add spice in the mix. I had fun with it! EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
A Toy Story 4 (2019) Sean Chandler This franchise has not skipped a single beat. Honestly, the franchise is as good, and in someways, better than it ever has been before. You don't need to be nervous. This is another heartwarming, very funny, Pixar classic. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B- Shaft (2019) Sean Chandler This is a movie that is for a very specific type of person that likes throwback action movies. I like throwback action movies! So, I had fun with it. It did make me laugh. I do enjoy seeing Samuel L. Jackson cranked up to 11. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B Child's Play (2019) Sean Chandler On its own merits, this is a fun and creepy slasher film with some gnarly kills and some tonal issues here and there. But, if you are a Child's Play purist, you're probably going to hate this movie. But, I'm not a purist! EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Sean Chandler It was a nice, somewhat lighter, addition to the franchise that I think was hurt a good bit by one character who I don't think was handled too well. EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
B Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Sean Chandler It is another solid, entertaining, and very funny film from the MCU. EDIT
