Robin Hood is so dull and forgettable that I'd rather shoot arrows at it then watch it again.

The Girl in the Spider's Web takes a badass hacker...and makes her a dull superhero.

Green Book is more then a guy version of Driving Miss Daisy. It's an engaging and warm car ride of class difference and friendship.

Creed II has the same Burning Heart from Rocky IV. This is a worthy sequel.

I've got reviews coming for The Girl in the Spider's Web, Widows, Robin Hood, and Creed 2 all coming up soon!

Ralph Breaks the Internet is more then web jokes. It's a funny and emotional story about friendship and being a good friend.

It may not be for everyone, but Instant Family is a nice, safe movie about a new family coming together, even with the complexities of foster care.

Overlord is a fun, exciting WWII horror film that delivers what it promises.

The Grinch didn't steel my heart, but its animation and Christmas themes should give it a family upstart. (Yes, my entire review is in rhyme).

Another one bites the dust? Nah, Bohemian Rhapsody does fine enough to proclaim "We Are the Champions".

A beautiful Look cannot save the boring, lazy, sloppily put together, holiday mess that is The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.

If theres a trick to landing growing up, then Mid90s did it great.

Though it's stylistic choices are questionable, Robert Redford delivers a good leading performance in The Old Man & the Gun

The Sisters Brothers finds some gold (acting and tone), but it's anarchic story will stress those looking for something more straightforward.

Take the key and enjoy the stay. Bad Times at the El Royale is a fun, Tarantino-style thriller that kept me engaged though the long running time.

The boogyman is back along with Jamie Lee Curtis in the new Halloween, a genuine continuation of the Michael Myers story.

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is a shameless, rushed, cheap cash-in, that plays like a bad cable movie of the week.

Sorry about the lack of updates, but I've got reviews of Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween and Bad Times at the El Royale coming soon.

First Man puts you into the pilots seat for a small step, but a giant leap for a great movie.

This is a story about stars unready to accept or lose fame. A Star is Born will shine forever.

Venom lives up to it's title: it's cinematic poison that one part standard superhero origin story and part bad editing that hurts it's darker intent

Hell Fest may be a typical slasher, but it's haunt and park imagery is really cool and atmospheric.

Smallfoot's snow bound story of acceptance will seem familiar to adults, but fun for kids

An amazing house and atmosphere doesn't offer parents more, but kids should like The House with a Clock in it's Walls fine.

Paul Feig has baked and posted an intriguing mystery A Simple Favor, with both Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively perfectly casted.

White Boy Rick is an intriguing rags-to-slighty better rags crime story that could have been great had they gotten a better lead.

The Predator is fun as an action movie, but the story it aims for is either too complicated or doesn't work at all.

The Nun has a lot of classic horror imagery (gothic church, foggy graveyard), but nothing more then a standard haunted house story.

Given how much we reveal ourselves online, Searching is a tense thriller that takes advantage of it's computer setting.

The Happytime Murders is a forgettable comedy with a recycled Roger Rabbit plot and boring characters.

Alpha goes to the dogs with it's strong story and characters, but is stuck with out of place actors and okay cinematography.

Though a story about meeting the parents is nothing new, Crazy Rich Asians is likable and charming enough that this fish out of water story should be fun for most.

A bizarre story based on a real life, BlacKkKlansman is a well made movie of how a black man infiltrated the klan.

The Meg is an example of a big budgeted B-Movie. It has plenty of shark action even if the first half is a slow burn.

It's as faceless as it's monster. The Slender Man is a giant bore with no character, no plot, no narrative, and one of the worst horror scripts.
