5.3/10 Dear Evan Hansen (2021) Dan Murrell All Evan Hansen has to do is emotionally terrorize a family to find his true value and self-worth. EDIT

7.5/10 Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) Dan Murrell Simu Liu steps into his role effortlessly. The pieces are more impressive than the whole. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2021
8.5/10 Candyman (2021) Dan Murrell Candyman is a solid horror movie. Genre films don't have to be empty calories - they can have something to say. EDIT

8.3/10 Free Guy (2021) Dan Murrell The perfect summer blockbuster. Gives you the spectacle you're looking for but also throws in some heart, character and laughs. EDIT
Posted Aug 5, 2021
8/10 The Suicide Squad (2021) Dan Murrell It has so much of the glossy sheen of the pages of a graphic novel that you can practically smell the ink. A huge improvement on the first film. EDIT

5.3/10 Jungle Cruise (2021) Dan Murrell Feels like a slick piece of corporate entertainment and not much else. I'm sure this movie's going to thrill and excite a lot of people. I'm just not one of them. EDIT

5.4/10 Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (2021) Dan Murrell If you're looking for an adequate summer movie that won't surprise or challenge you in any way, Snake Eyes is the one for you. EDIT

4.8/10 Old (2021) Dan Murrell Old is a movie at war with itself. It loses that war. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2021
4.9/10 Space Jam: A New Legacy (2021) Dan Murrell A wannabe subversive movie that forgot the subversion. It wants to be a commentary on corporate cynicism but is an example of it. EDIT
Posted Jul 17, 2021
5/10 Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021) Dan Murrell It's like if the movie Clue had been about watching the main characters play the board game Clue. EDIT
Posted Jul 16, 2021
7/10 Black Widow (2021) Dan Murrell Black Widow does not achieve greatness like so many other Marvel films. It achieves acceptability. EDIT
Posted Jun 29, 2021
5.3/10 F9 The Fast Saga (2021) Dan Murrell Every Fast & Furious sequel seems to exist solely to make the previous film look less ridiculous and more plausible. EDIT
Posted Jun 23, 2021
6/10 Luca (2021) Dan Murrell I don't expect Pixar to hit a home run every time, but I do expect more than the single they deliver with Luca. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2021
8.9/10 In the Heights (2021) Dan Murrell My favorite movie of the year so far. This proves why we can't lose the big screen experience. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2021
7.9/10 A Quiet Place Part II (2021) Dan Murrell Tense and action-packed. It could be the end - but it leaves plenty of space to expand. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2021
8/10 Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train (2020) Dan Murrell The second half of the movie really kicks things into high gear. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2021
7.2/10 Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Dan Murrell Godzilla vs. Kong is trying to be a great Godzilla vs. Kong movie and it succeeds on that level. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2021
7.2/10 Nobody (2021) Dan Murrell The cast of Nobody transcends the material. I liked this journey and I liked this character. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2021
7/10 The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) Dan Murrell The Conjuring is maybe the most consistent running horror franchise. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2021
5/10 Cruella (2021) Dan Murrell They're the villains that we hate. Don't make them into the heroes that we love. EDIT
Posted May 26, 2021
5.2/10 Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021) Dan Murrell Spiral is not a new chapter or a reimagining of the franchise - it's yet another rehash. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2021
7.3/10 Army Of The Dead (2021) Dan Murrell Army of the Dead and Snyder's remake of Dawn of the Dead constitute two of the better modern zombie films that have been made. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2021
6/10 Mortal Kombat (2021) Dan Murrell The good news is that Mortal Kombat easily reaches the upper echelons of video game adaptations. The bad news is that it's an embarrassingly low bar. EDIT
Posted Apr 23, 2021
5.2/10 Coming 2 America (2021) Dan Murrell It makes me wonder how much demand there was out there for a cleaner Coming to America sequel. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2021
7.8/10 Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) Dan Murrell Zack Snyder's Justice League is the most successful realization of the vision that Zack Snyder's always had for the DC universe. EDIT
Posted Mar 18, 2021
6.5/10 Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) Dan Murrell A tepid recommendation. Lacks the strength and focus of Disney's better films. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2021
6.8/10 The Little Things (2021) Dan Murrell The plot sounds like something you'd read on the back of a paperback outside Hudson News. The real anchor here is the cast. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2021
8/10 Soul (2020) Dan Murrell The animation and voice cast are outstanding. It has my favorite score of the year. There's not a lot to criticize. Soul is worthy of the Pixar banner. EDIT
Posted Dec 26, 2020
6/10 Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Dan Murrell Feels like a standard superhero sequel that throws so much at you, you wish it had the hyper focus of the original. EDIT
Posted Dec 26, 2020
5/10 The Prom (2020) Dan Murrell A bloated movie with a bunch of stars who shove the only interesting storyline off the screen. EDIT
Posted Dec 26, 2020
7/10 Mank (2020) Dan Murrell An unfocused but impressive film from David Fincher. EDIT
Posted Dec 26, 2020
7/10 The Christmas Chronicles 2 (2020) Dan Murrell I can't think of another actor who's put as much commitment into playing a role as Kurt Russell does as Santa Claus. EDIT
Posted Nov 19, 2020
6/10 Hubie Halloween (2020) Dan Murrell 45 minutes in, I came to a very disturbing realization - I don't hate this. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2020
7.1/10 Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) Dan Murrell Not as ageless as the first movie, but I can't judge it too harshly for not being as good as the incredibly funny movie that preceded it. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2020
6.3/10 Antebellum (2020) Dan Murrell It is not subtle about what it is saying and what it is doing, but there are a lot of positives. EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2020
5.3/10 Mulan (2020) Dan Murrell Technically, the movie is incredibly well made. I didn't have much to connect to on a story or character level. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2020
6.5/10 Tenet (2020) Dan Murrell Impressively constructed [but] Christopher Nolan's obsession with manipulation of time is starting to become something for an audience of one. EDIT
Posted Aug 31, 2020
6/10 Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) Dan Murrell Feels like a group of friends getting together to make the movie they wanted to make, even if there are some compromises along the way. EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2020
5.2/10 The New Mutants (2020) Dan Murrell A movie from a bygone era when Fox was its own company that didn't quite know what to do with X-Men movies. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2020
5/10 Unhinged (2020) Dan Murrell This isn't just a turn off your brain movie...You have to assume everyone in the movie has turned off their brains. EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2020
6.5/10 Project Power (2020) Dan Murrell Kind of scratches that summer movie itch and explores an interesting premise with some solid performances. EDIT
Posted Aug 13, 2020
8/10 Palm Springs (2020) Dan Murrell A great balance of comedy, drama, romance, science fiction - there's a lot of genres at play here. One of 2020's better films. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2020
6.3/10 The King of Staten Island (2020) Dan Murrell Judd Apatow's doing a character study merged to the bones of a studio comedy, and I don't know if that synthesis always works. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2020
8/10 Da 5 Bloods (2020) Dan Murrell One of the best movies this year...Delroy Lindo is brilliant in this movie. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2020
3.5/10 Artemis Fowl (2020) Dan Murrell Artemis Fowl isn't just a bad movie. It's a gloriously bad movie. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2020
7/10 The Lovebirds (2020) Dan Murrell Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae make a very good comedic team...A comedy that knows exactly how long it needs to be. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2020
5/10 SCOOB! (2020) Dan Murrell By trying to include everything, they accomplish nothing. EDIT
