The story of Frozen II gets lost in the woods despite good songs and animation. Perhaps it's time to let it go.

Without spoiling anything, Parasite is an amazing, darkly comedic answer to the complicated question, "would you steel a loaf of bread to feed a starving family?".

The tone may be a bit off, but Doctor Sleep is an entertaining sequel with great acting, great atmosphere, and a ghost story that should please Stephen King fans.

Last Christmas, it'll give you plenty of heart, but the very next day, it can be a tad predictable. oh, and it's a literal adaptation of the Wham song.

Though it's better then Genisys, Terminator: Dark Fate repeats a lot and creates more questions about the series that it doesn't answer.

Though the jokes are hit and miss, Zombieland: Double Tap is a funny sequel with more zombie kills.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is a boring, soulless formula to turn it's audience into sleeping beauties.

Snoogins! Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is both a funny jab at movie reboots and a heartfelt father/daughter story.

2 Will Smiths aren't enough to save Gemini Man from being a boring, by-the-books thriller with nothing other then it's gimmick to sell it.

As a cautionary tale about mental health, Joker and it's take on the clown prince of crime is great.

I'm playing some catch up. I've got reviews of Joker, Judy, and Ad Astra coming up soon!

Abominable is harmless for children, but it feels too similar to other DreamWorks movies.

Downton Abbey is made for the fans who like the high class period piece series, even if it looks nice and elegant.

Brittany Runs a Marathon is a very funny, inspiring story about a toxic person making a positive change.

When the enemy draws first blood, Rambo: Last Blood gives us a short, but enjoyable run-and-gun movie with an older Stallone.

Jennifer Lopez makes up for a repetitive tone in Hustlers, a cross between Showgirls, Boogie Nights, and The Sting

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Ready or Not is a fun game of dark comedy and family secrets.

I expected a raunchy comedy like Good Boys to be naughtier. It's too sanitized for me to recommend.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark works when it's telling its short stories, but it's larger story is disjointed.

I can't believe I'm recommending Dora and the Lost City of Gold, but it was genuinely funny and has a committed actress as Dora.

Hobbs & Shaw needed to trim it's overlong story to be the unapologetic over-the-top movie it wants to be.

The Lion King is "Hakuna MaNADA". It's practically a shot-for-shot and pointless other then the impressive visual effects.

Crawl makes for a quick, but fun Jaws-like thriller with alligators. Sometimes, that's all you need.

Stuber is a three star rated ride: a serviceable ride with only some good jokes.

Overlong, pretentious, and unoriginal, Midsommar is a dull and boring followup to Hereditary.

As an epilogue for Endgame, Spider-Man: Far from Home makes for a fun cinematic vacation with Spider-Man and Mysterio.

Don't f**k with the Chuck! The new Child's Play did...and it was very entertaining and did enough to separate itself from the original.

Playtime is messy. Toy Story 4 has a jumbled plot and side charecters that are tossed away, making this more of a "meh" story.

Rocketman is a real "Rocket Man" as it soars and gives it's audience a show that'll make Elton John "Still Stand" for ages.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 is a sloppy set of plots strung together, but like the first movie, is inoffensive for kids.

Along with an already done "whose on what team" plot, Dark Phoenix is a boring, dull slog that makes for a terrible way to end the X-Men saga.

Though it has a lot of boring humans and exposition, Godzilla: King of the Monsters may be worth it just for the monster fights.

It's a bird, it's a plane,...it's destroying a house. Brightburn is the dark superhero movie we never knew we needed.
