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 Nov 14, 2019

Posted Nov 14, 2019

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

Posted Oct 2, 2019

Posted Oct 2, 2019

Posted Oct 2, 2019

Posted Oct 2, 2019

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

Posted Oct 2, 2019

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
Posted Sep 17, 2019

Posted Aug 12, 2019

Posted Aug 9, 2019
C Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Sean Chandler If I were to recommend a horror film to this movie's target demographic, this is not the film I would recommend. EDIT
Posted Aug 9, 2019

Posted Aug 7, 2019
B+ Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Sean Chandler Hobbs & Shaw knows exactly what it is and what it's target audience wants. It's dumb, but it's probably the most fun I've had at the theater this year! EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2019

Posted Jul 11, 2019
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
Posted Jul 11, 2019
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
Posted Jul 9, 2019

Posted Jul 9, 2019

Posted Jul 9, 2019

Posted Jul 9, 2019

Posted Jul 9, 2019

Posted Jul 9, 2019

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
