Movie Review: 'Lightyear'
"Much like Buzz isn’t used to the new kinds of sandwiches, I’m not used to Pixar movies that are this bad."
Movie Review: 'Jurassic World Dominion'
"I’m not seeing a lot of love for Jurassic World Dominion from other critics, and I can understand why."
Movie Review: The Bob’s Burgers Movie
"This was the most fun I’d had at the movies… maybe all year."
Movie Review: 'Top Gun: Maverick'
"The likeable characters and exciting action sequences make 'Top Gun: Maverick' the epitome of a crowd-pleasing summer blockbuster."
Movie Review: 'Downton Abbey: A New Era'
"I wasn’t sure if 'Downton Abbey: A New Era' would work, and my doubts have been proven unfounded."
Movie Review: 'Firestarter'
"It's hard to think of anything positive to say about Firestarter, from the acting to the script to the action to the movie’s need to exist."
Movie Review: 'Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness'
"For a movie whose very title tells us to be prepared for anything, it can never quite deliver the right amount of chaos."
Movie Review: 'The Bad Guys'
It's not hard to see where this movie draws its inspiration. Subverting fairy tales, that’s “Shrek.”
Movie Review: ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore’
Unlike the 8-movie “Harry Potter” series, the “Fantastic Beasts” sector of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World has never been able to quite get off the ground.
Movie Review: 'Sonic The Hedgehog 2'
"Jim Carrey is in tip-top comedic form (I hope he’s not serious about retiring from acting) and all the characters are likeable in one way or another."
Movie Review: 'Morbius'
"Clearly someone wanted to dump this movie on just the right unremarkable weekend where it would be free of decent competition."
Movie Review: 'The Lost City'
'I was all ready to embrace this movie because theaters haven’t had a potential blockbuster since “The Batman” three weeks ago, but this is not a blockbuster of an effort.'
Movie Review: 'Jujutsu Kaisen 0'
"I found myself really getting invested in the culture of 'Jujutsu Kaisen.' It doesn’t hurt that the creative curse/creature designs are incredible."
Movie Review: 'Turning Red'
"I have never seen a Pixar movie I didn’t like, and the “Red”-hot streak continues here."
Movie Review: 'The Batman'
"Maybe it’s because I love the Batman universe so much that every misstep in this movie seems so glaring. And for some reason, Batman takes a lot of steps in this movie."
Movie Review: 'Dog'
"I’m no dog person, and I strongly disapprove of some of Briggs’ choices throughout the journey, but I was surprised by how much I liked this movie overall."
Movie Review: 'Uncharted'
"The film is based on a video game, and I’m sure the action works better in that setting."
Movie Review: 'Death On The Nile'
Legendary Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is back ... and so is his ridiculous mustache.
Movie Review: 'Jackass Forever'
"It should be noted that many scenes in this movie involve the area… below the belt."
Movie Review: 'Licorice Pizza'
"This movie is worth seeking out, even though it probably won’t be at the top of your local theater’s marquee"
Movie Review: 'Redeeming Love'
“Redeeming Love” is a cross between a Christian movie, a mushy romance, and a demented exploitation film.
Movie Review: 'Scream'
"This is a worthy successor to the 1996 film, which is more than I can say for the three preceding sequels."
Movie Review: 'The 355'
"I dare someone to give us a sequel after how bad this movie is and how badly it has performed."
