Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies For The Rest of 2019

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

Midsommar is an Unsettling & Demented Break-Up Movie For The Ages (Review)

Midsommar is an Unsettling & Demented Break-Up Movie For The Ages (Review)

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

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is an Epic Movie That You Want to Love, But Just Can’t (Review)

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is an Epic Movie That You Want to Love, But Just Can’t (Review)

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

MA is an Uncomfortable & Odd Misfire (Review)

MA is an Uncomfortable & Odd Misfire (Review)

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

John Wick 3: Parabellum is One of The Best Action Films of The Past Decade, Maybe Ever (Review)

John Wick 3: Parabellum is One of The Best Action Films of The Past Decade, Maybe Ever (Review)

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 a Consistently Hilarious Instant Classic (Review)

Long Shot is a Consistently Hilarious Instant Classic (Review)

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

Greta is Familiar, Yet Effective & Thrilling Thanks to Isabelle Huppert (Review)

Greta is Familiar, Yet Effective & Thrilling Thanks to Isabelle Huppert (Review)

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

Michael’s Top 10 Movies of 2018: Hereditary, BlacKkKlansman & A Quiet Place

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.

The Top 10 Worst Movies of 2018 Feat. Truth or Dare, Fifty Shades Freed & More

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

Aquaman is A Wild Thrill Ride That Splashes With Colossal Entertainment (Review)

Aquaman is A Wild Thrill Ride That Splashes With Colossal Entertainment (Review)

There was a time that everyone thought that the DC Extended Universe was all but dead. Between Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, Man of Steel, and Justice League, it seemed that they didn’t quite know what the fans wanted. So many dark undertones and bloated run times made those films hard to enjoy. While I somewhat enjoyed BVS and Justice League, it was clear that they needed to take multiple steps in a different direction in order to keep this universe alive. Wonder Woman was absolutely incredible and it showed hope. It is pleasing to say that Aquaman is another awesome installment for DC. While it may not be as good as Wonder Woman, it’s still a lot of fun and visually stunning. Read more

Mary Poppins Returns is a Charming Love Letter That Occasionally Tries Too Hard (Review)

Mary Poppins Returns is a Charming Love Letter That Occasionally Tries Too Hard (Review)

There are always a few movies that come out each year that act as love letters to old Hollywood. Sometimes you get a movie like La La Land that does it just enough, but not too much. Sometimes you get one that does it just a little bit too much. Does this make it a bad movie? Not at all. Mary Poppins Returns is quite frankly a charming film. But does it affect its ability to become a classic? Yes. Let’s take a look at what worked and what didn’t in Mary Poppins Returns. Read more
