4.5/5 Honey Boy (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Honey Boy is a story of forgiveness, gently told by director Alma Ha'rel who is making her feature film debut as a director. I felt for Shia and see him in a new light both as a person, an actor, and screenwriter. EDIT

Posted Nov 22, 2019
4.5/5 A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes We need kindness and love in this world and Fred Rogers is the hero we need to do that. Tom Hanks is absolute perfection as Fred Rogers. EDIT
Posted Nov 22, 2019
2/5 The Kitchen (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes I understand the appeal for McCarthy, Haddish, and Moss to take on a film like this, but The Kitchen wastes all of their talents. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
4/5 Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Blanchett is divine as the film makes Bernadette's issues a relatable struggle many people have faced. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
3/5 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Still retains the feel of Fast and the Furious while taking it in a new direction. Cross between that, Mission: Impossible and The Terminator. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
4/5 Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes It may not be top-tier Tarantino on first watch, but I can sense that my appreciation for it will grow with time upon multiple viewings. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019

Posted Nov 21, 2019
1/5 Stuber (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes There's nothing new with this buddy cop comedy with its cheap, lowbrow humor. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
4/5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Fun, lively, high school spirit as Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man to date. No Marvel fatigue with this one. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019

Posted Nov 21, 2019
4.5/5 Toy Story 4 (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Pixar pulls out all the stops for Toy Story 4. oy Story 4 provides the closure you didn't think you needed for this franchise. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
3/5 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes The monster fights alone are worth seeing on a huge screen. Just don't go looking for a realistic plot or science. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
4/5 Rocketman (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Elton John puts it all out there, and Taron Egerton is "Captain Fantastic" as Elton John. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
4/5 John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes The best in the franchise. Keanu Reeves is back and better than ever. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
2/5 Aladdin (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes My wish is that this would have been a better movie. The Disney whimsy and magic is lacking in Aladdin. EDIT

Posted Nov 21, 2019
3.5/5 Long Shot (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Broad appeal with Long Shot as it plays to the Seth Rogen fan base, the rom com watchers, and anyone that enjoys political comedies. It's smarter and funnier than you'll want to give it credit for. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
4.5/5 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes I feel like Stan Lee is probably looking down from heaven with a huge smile on his face with Avengers: Endgame EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
2/5 Teen Spirit (2018) Paul McGuire Grimes This should be right up my alley as I love the music and Elle Fanning as an actress, but it's hard to like a movie when you don't root for the lead character. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
3/5 The Best of Enemies (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes You know how this movie will play out, but it's educational. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
2.5/5 Shazam! (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes There's potential with this character but this film is not as clever or self-aware as it could be. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
4/5 Dumbo (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Dumbo is filled with whimsy, magic, and adventure. This film can introduce a whole new younger generation to Dumbo who haven't seen the 1941 original. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
5/5 Us (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes A horror masterpiece for the new age. Cannot wait to see what Peele will come up with for his next film. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019

Posted Nov 21, 2019
4/5 Fighting With My Family (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Thoroughly accessible for non-wrestling fans out there and the kind of family sports flick that makes you feel all gushy afterwards EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
4.5/5 If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) Paul McGuire Grimes 3 Time Emmy Winner Regina King gives another charged and determined performance. You cling to every word and piece of advice she has. The film may be quiet, but it packs a punch. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
3/5 Isn't It Romantic (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Rebel Wilson and Adam Devine play to their strengths and recreate the chemistry they had in the Pitch Perfect movies. They get to be their charming, goofy selves that we expect from them. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
2.5/5 What Men Want (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Taraji P.Henson is entertaining but is better than this material. The breakout star though is Erykah Badu. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
3/5 The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes It's not as "awesome" as the first one, but it's still creative and very funny. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
4/5 Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes As someone who has gone through a similar weight loss transformation, it really gets it right in terms of the personal shame you feel, the guilt, the emotional eating, and the perseverance it takes to accomplish a personal transformation. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019

Posted Nov 21, 2019
4/5 Downton Abbey (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes The series transitions to the big screen well, even the theme song and the castle seem bigger and grander on the big screen. It's easy to get swept up in the spectacle of it all. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
4.5/5 Ad Astra (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Brad Pitt gives one of the best performances of his career. It's a deeply internalized performance but one where we can see and know everything he's feeling just by looking in his eyes. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
5/5 The Dark Knight (2008) Paul McGuire Grimes Heath Ledger gives one of the best performances of the last twenty years. When you watch his take on the Joker, it's one of complete surprise and mystery. It's frightening with how chaotic and mischievous he makes him. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
3/5 Joker (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes Joaquin Phoenix who goes all in with another full-throttle performance full of intensity. It's not entertaining or wholly original in it's approach but it comes with a phenomenal performance. EDIT
Posted Nov 21, 2019
2.5/5 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes I don't know if this is a sequel we need. A strong message for kids, but their parents may get a little bored. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2019
4.5/5 Jojo Rabbit (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes It's hard to balance all of those tones correct, Taika Waititi does it really well. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but you won't see another film like it this year. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2019
4.5/5 Doctor Sleep (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes It balances those two books and the Kubrick movie really well to please movie fans and Stephen King fans. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2019
3.5/5 Last Christmas (2019) Paul McGuire Grimes It's a really cute holiday movie. It's charming, it's silly, it's funny, goofy and full of George Michael/Wham! music. EDIT
