Posted Jan 29, 2021
5.5/10 The Little Things (2021) Jim Judy The three leads certainly help lift the material somewhat above all the familiarity. But the lack of anything new or novel and the third act problems knock off some points. (Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, Nudity, etc. - Available) EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2021
7/10 Our Friend (2019) Jim Judy A well-made, engaging, and emotionally moving offering. (Full Content Review for Parents - Profanity, Sexual Content, etc. - also Available) EDIT

6.5/10 Promising Young Woman (2020) Jim Judy Mulligan's captivating performance is what makes the film -- along with writer/director Emerald Fennell's script and sure-handed direction -- work so well. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2021
6/10 Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Jim Judy It's still a blast watching Gadot portray the character, the action scenes involving her are handled well, and the chemistry with Pine is still spot on. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Dec 25, 2020

Posted Dec 18, 2020
5/10 Wild Mountain Thyme (2020) Jim Judy It's a decent enough premise, but much of what's present has a herky-jerky and occasionally rushed feel to it as related to the overall storytelling. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Sexual Material, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2020
6.5/10 Safety (2020) Jim Judy The performances are good and the film is an engaging and occasionally emotionally moving offering that's all about the importance of family. (Full Content Review for Parents - Profanity, Tense Family Material, etc. - also Available) EDIT

Posted Dec 14, 2020
6.5/10 Minari (2020) Jim Judy Not exactly a cheery movie but a well-made and performed look at immigrants trying to live the American dream. (Full Content Review for Parents - Profanity, Tense Family Material, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Dec 14, 2020
4/10 Superintelligence (2020) Jim Judy Maybe Elon Musk was wrong, for if this is what we can expect from "Superintelligence," you can go about your day and simply ignore it. (Full Content Review for Parents - Profanity, Sexual Content, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Nov 27, 2020
5.5/10 Hillbilly Elegy (2020) Jim Judy A decent offering that purposefully doesn't delve into ideology and instead focuses on the tale of coming to grips with one's past (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, Drugs, etc. - also Available) EDIT

Posted Nov 13, 2020
4.5/10 Fatman (2020) Jim Judy Although it's not a cinematic lump of coal, it's clearly not the sort of movie present you'll cherish or want to revisit during the end of any given year. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Nov 13, 2020
5.5/10 Freaky (2020) Jim Judy Landon's ideas and the figurative and literal execution of them (and the victims) should satiate the cinematic bloodlust of such viewers. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, Sex, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Nov 13, 2020
6/10 Let Him Go (2020) Jim Judy The veteran performers more than make for a believable couple of that bygone era and you can easily sense and understand their loss on several fronts. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2020
5/10 Operation Christmas Drop (2020) Jim Judy While I found the offering pretty but otherwise instantly forgettable, fans of Hallmark-style Christmas romance flicks will likely find enough to fill them with warm and fuzzy holiday cheer. (Content Review for Parents - Profanity, etc. - Available) EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2020
The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020) Jim Judy An engaging look at a tumultuous period in our history that proves we haven't evolved much if any since then. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2020
Honest Thief (2020) Jim Judy I'll have to be honest when I say I enjoyed certain parts of the flick and Neeson is competent in the part like always. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2020
The Devil Has a Name (2020) Jim Judy It doesn't coalesce into any sort of entertaining or engaging effort, not helped by some truly sub-par editing and overall storytelling flow. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, Nudity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2020
2 Hearts (2020) Jim Judy It's clunky at spots and some of the acting occasionally feels a bit rough. And yes, it's as predictable as they come. (Full Content Review for Parents - Sexual Content, Profanity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2020
5/10 The War With Grandpa (2020) Jim Judy The pranks and related hijinks aren't as inspired as one might be expecting. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, Obscured Nudity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2020
5/10 A Rainy Day in New York (2019) Jim Judy The overall offering comes off like a retread of material and characters Allen's handled better in the past. (Full Content Review for Parents - Sexual Content, Profanity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2020
Enola Holmes (2020) Jim Judy You certainly won't need a detective to find the fun in watching this highly entertaining film. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, etc. - also Available) EDIT

Misbehaviour (2020) Jim Judy It's a well-made and ultra engaging offering. (Full Content Review for Parents - Profanity, Violence, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2020
Secret Society of Second Born Royals (2020) Jim Judy I imagine lots of young girls (and perhaps a few boys) will enjoy this mash-up of royals, princesses, and the ability to perform like a superhero. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2020
Infidel (2020) Jim Judy This could have been a riveting political-religious thriller. As it stands, it's okay, but often feels like just a continuation of Caviezel's on-screen religious persecution. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2020
Blackbird (2019) Jim Judy An emotionally engaging film about a difficult subject and family dynamic that benefits from a smart script and strong performances across the board. (Full Content Review for Parents - Profanity, Drug Use, etc. - also Available) EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2020
Antebellum (2020) Jim Judy Decent, but likely better had it somehow leaned into the supernatural rather than follow the now all too predictable Shyamalan playbook. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available) EDIT
