The Big Sick
The Big Sick (2017)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

One of the best comedy in years, with excellent acting and a great and moving story. However it is so close to perfect and falls short due to a third act that overstays it's welcome. Since there is no immediate way to tell how close this movie was to the actual events, any more criticisms will stay nitpicks for now.

Up
Up (2009)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The opening ten minutes is one of the most incredible pieces of animation in the history of the genre, and the simple fact that the movie manages to stay great afterward is enough to recommend it. Easily Pixar's best for me.

Let It Shine
Let It Shine (2012)

½

Very easy to predict the story, as well as an unnecessary villain and a lot of plot conveniences. But Let It Shine is a lot better than it may sound. It doesn't beat you over the head with it's moral and has some great acting at points. Even the aforementioned villain has so much fun in his role. The movie has some low parts that you will be ready to end, but after the credits roll, I found this to be a much better experience than I expected. Maybe I'm somewhat bias, but if you think you'll enjoy, it's just enough for me to recommend.

Lemonade Mouth
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It feels unfair and too easy to say Lemonade Mouth is an obvious Breakfast Club wannabe. But unlike a lot of the pure garbage that Disney Channel puts out, Lemonade Mouth actually tries at times, just not hard enough. A few solid performances and one or two catchy songs. Oddly enough, the movie's colorful visuals add a lot to it. The story has some high points, but it seems to be restricted by the story that it feels like it 'needs' to tell, and some characters are so bland and one note that nobody will blame you for fast-forwarding a couple scenes. This picture is a lot more pleasant than half of the movies that Disney Channel would have your kids watch, and does appear to have a lot of love and care put into the movie at certain parts, but it comes off more as wasted potential.
