Vanquish
Have you ever watched a movie that is so bad that it is almost good? Well, if you can't say that you have then gather up all of your sharp-witted friends and que up Vanquish this weekend. I have seen well over 5,000 movies in my life and this one ranks right up there as one of the worst of all time. This is bordering on The Room level of bad. This is the kind of film you beg the writers of Mystery Science Theater 3000 to roast someday, because...

Arlo The Alligator Boy
It's not very often that I can get my whole family to agree to watching something together, much less having everyone like what is on, but this film had all of us tapping our toes, smiling, laughing and enjoying the story and the characters. The story of the band of misfits on a road trip to find happiness is an old trope, but this film uses it in a unique and modern way that gives it a fun twist. It is lighthearted, funny, and quirky. It is a story that focuses on...

Voyagers
This is like a lot of Sci-Fi flicks in that it is a good film, but it could have been a lot better with a faster pace and some more excitement throughout. It does get very exciting and compelling when it finally gets to the main conflict, but it takes a while to get there and then it feels like it resolves too quickly. One odd point is that the acting feels very wooden and stilted, but there is a good reason for that, so it is difficult to tell if the acting isn't great or...

Thunder Force
I'm not sure that most of the world knew that we needed a couple of middle-aged superheroes in our lives, but Netflix did, and now we have Thunder Force. Melissa McCarthy has made some interesting role choices over the last several years, and to her credit, she has done a great job in almost all of those films. This one is no exception. Yes, she plays the character you would expect her to play, but she does it in convincing and fun fashion. Octavia Spencer does a great job as the buttoned-up,...

Godzilla Vs. Kong
Look, there is no need to beat around the bush regarding this film. All you need to know is that Godzilla and Kong beat the ever-loving tar out of each other for a good 40 minutes. The rest of the movie is only there to funnel you towards the fight scenes. If you read that and got excited, then go see it now. You will not be disappointed. If you are interested in things like great acting, a powerful and meaningful screenplay, and a movie without massive plot holes why on earth...

French Exit
I have to say, I was quite surprised by this film. The trailer did nothing to make me want to see it, but alas, it is my job to see movies that I don't always want to see. I went into it with an open mind, but my suspicions were disappointingly confirmed about 20 minutes into the film when I found myself looking at my watch and letting my mind wander. Then, it happened. About 50 minutes into the movie there is an exchange that is so incredibly funny that I was pulled back in. And then...

Nobody
Sometimes we all need something in our life that is just fun. Something that doesn't mean anything, something that isn't trying to be something else, something that lets you check your brain at the door and just absorb the entertainment. Nobody does just that. Bob Odenkirk is fabulous in his role as a former hired gun turned family man. You can see him trying so hard to be the perfect, normal husband and father, but the bad boy side of him is itching to come out and play. And when that part...

A Week Away
When I first heard about this film I had all sorts of alarm bells going off in my head. A Christian, church camp musical? There are so many ways that this movie could have easily become a disaster. Thankfully, the writers and the people behind the movie made sure that it stayed on track and it ended up being a fun, quirky film that the whole family will enjoy. The main characters, played by Bailee Madison and Kevin Quinn, have great on-screen chemistry. They are a lot of fun to watch. Quinn...

The Courier
Benedict Cumberbatch is like bacon and butter, he makes everything he's in better. I'm sure The Courier would have been a wonderful film without him because the story is so compelling and incredible, but it could end up being one of my favorite films of the year because he is in it. Based on a true story, this otherwise unbelievable story is filled with suspense, intrigue, and fascinating characters. It is a powerful examination of how even a seemingly average person living an average life can step up and accomplish extraordinary things...

Zack Snyder's Justice League
Four hours and two minutes. That is the official running time of this flick. That's twice as long as two long movies. That's nearly six episodes of Supernatural. That's sixteen episodes of that little kid show Peppa Pig. Four hours and two minutes. I'd rather watch Peppa Pig. First of all, if you are thinking, "hmmm, this movie sounds familiar," you are correct. This movie was released in late 2017. Back then it was 2 1/2 hours and everybody...

Yes Day
(Streaming on Netflix) Jennifer Garner is one of those rare Hollywood commodities that can turn out a fantastic action flick and then turn around and give us a wonderful family film. And she has done it once again with Yes Day. This is the movie of kids' dreams and parents' nightmares. As much as I think I would like to give my kids a "yes" day, I'm almost positive that they would use it to try to kill me. I got proof of this while watching this film and my young girls kept...

Raya and the Last Dragon
(In theaters). I was excited from the first moment I saw the teaser poster for this film. I couldn't wait to see it. I just hoped it would live up to all of my wild expectations. It did. This movie is awesome. It is funny, sentimental, inspiring, sad, powerful, and beautiful. You'll spend a lot of time laughing, a lot of time cheering on Raya, and a lot of time holding your breath as she faces difficult challenges head on. Awkwafina...

Coming 2 America
(Streaming on Amazon Prime). It's been 33 long years since the Prince of Zamunda went to Queens to find his bride. Along the way there were rumors of a possible sequel, but nothing came of those. Until now. It was worth the wait. I am happy to tell you that this film is amazing! It may even be better than the first one. It is filled with cameos, laughs, and Easter eggs. (My favorite being a painting on the wall while Akeem's son is being interviewed). ...

Chaos Walking
(In theaters). This film is based on a trilogy of books released around 2010. That was the apex of the Young Adult dystopian craze. Eleven years on, we still get a good reminder every now and again at how many wild and thought-provoking books explored that genre. Imagine living in a place where your thoughts were always on display for everyone to hear, but you had no idea what the women around you were thinking. A difference like that could cause some serious issues. This film explores several of those issues. ...

Boogie
(In theaters). I love a good sports movie. Especially one that centers on basketball. At the same time, I hate bad sports movies with the passion of a thousand burning suns. My only hard rule for a sports film is, whatever sport you choose, make sure you are showing the sport being played properly and well. This is a bad sports movie. I found nothing of value in this film. The dialogue is choppy and cringe-worthy, the basketball looks like it is being played by a bunch of actors,...
