There is one thing to confirm after seeing The Report: Adam Driver is one of the best actors working in Hollywood and he can do no wrong. He shines in The Report portraying Daniel J. Jones, a senate staffer that worked on uncovering the truth surrounding the CIA’s post 9/11 Interrogation Program. His performance coupled with the tight screenplay and poised direction from Scott Z. Burns make for a very well put-together film. Read more

2019 hasn’t been the strongest year for movies. There have been some fantastic movies to hit the big screen, but at the same time there have been several disappointments and forgettable flicks to come out. Not every year can be stellar, but luckily 2019 still have several months to make up for it. The back half of the year is stacked. Let’s take a look at 10 movies coming out in the next 4 months that everyone should be excited for. Read more
Let the Festivities Begin
In 2018, writer/director Ari Aster gave us the horror masterpiece Hereditary. It was slightly surprising to see him pump out another movie so fast. Midsommar is different from Hereditary in a lot of ways, but it also shares some similarities. Most importantly, this movie proves that Ari Aster is a force to be reckoned with and that the sophomore slump doesn’t apply to him. Midsommar is a great film. Much like Hereditary, it will be very divisive as well. This movie isn’t for everyone by any means. But if you loved Hereditary, you’ll love Midsommar. Read more
Don’t you just hate being disappointed? To look forward to a movie like this that had an epic trailer and teased something great, only to leave the theater feeling let down is an awful impression. That being said, it doesn’t mean that Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a bad movie. It is actually pretty enjoyable to an extent. But when it comes to a monster movie with this kind of popularity, “enjoyable” just isn’t enough. There is a lot to like about it, and there’s a lot of problems. Read more
From the trailer, it was difficult to tell if Ma would be an enticing thriller, a guilty pleasure, or simply a bad movie. It’s not good if the trailer alone has an identity crisis and let’s just say that Ma definitely has no idea what kind of movie it wants to be. That is just one of the many problems it has, making it easily one of the worst movies to come out in 2019. Read more
Guns…. Lots of guns…. It’s so awesome to hear Keanu Reeves utter that iconic line again. First hearing it back in 1999’s Sci-Fi classic The Matrix, it appears not too much has changed with Reeves as he continues to be a huge action star. John Wick 3 is the third installment of the surprisingly entertaining and successful John Wick Universe, and it not only delivers, but it also exceeds all expectations. It is a perfect blend of stylized action and downtime to expand the universe just a little more. Read more
Long Shot is 2019’s first comedy hit. Not only is it a hit in 2019, but it’ll go down as one of the best comedies of the 2000s. Overall, it is a pleasant surprise that’ll make you cry from laughing in one scene, and then be surprisingly touching in another. Who knew that Seth Rogan and Charlize Theron would be this good together? There’s so much to like about this one, let’s take a look below at what all worked. Read more
WINTER. IS. HERE.
The much-anticipated final season of Game of Thrones airs this Sunday April 14th. Many regard GOT as the greatest television show of all time, and rightfully so considering each episode is great. It only feels right to rank the top 5 episodes of the series before the new season starts. Let’s take a look below. Read more
So far, 2019 has been pretty slow for cinema. This is not an uncommon thing considering January, February, and March typically don’t have the most compelling films released. So, it’s nice when a movie can surprise us. While Greta isn’t the most original thriller, it still manages to overcome problems thanks to an effective third act and poised performances from Chloe Grace Mortez and Isabelle Huppert. There is a lot to like about this one and like any film, it doesn’t come without its issues. Let’s take a look at what worked and what didn’t. Read more
2018 was a good year for movies. Not great like 2016 and 2017, but there were definitely some great films to hit theaters and streaming services last year including Hereditary and BlacKkKlansman. I saw over 100 films in 2018 and I managed to narrow them down to a top 10. Let’s take a look below.
Looking back on 2018, it wasn’t the strongest year for movies that we’ve had this decade. There were some really great films, but overall it was a bit underwhelming. In addition to underwhelming, we had some straight up awful movies to hit the theaters in 2018. Below is my list for the worst films of 2018. Read more
