Enola Holmes
This is easily one of the most fun and unique films of the year. It uses the technique of breaking the fourth wall to perfection. It is filled with fun effects, graphics and puzzles. The acting by Millie Bobby Brown proves that what she did in Stranger Things was no fluke. She is a powerhouse actor. She also makes you fall in love with her character right from the start. You will find yourself cheering her on every step of the way. The rest of the cast is amazing as well. The...

Wonder Woman 1984
Congratulations, Patty Jenkins, you are now two for two with making my wife cry tears of joy at the end of your Wonder Woman movies. And that is no small feat because my wife is a New York Times bestselling author so she understands story a lot more than your average audience member. One of the greatest aspects of this film is not only do we get to enjoy the awesome on-screen chemistry between Gal Gadot and Chris Pine again, but we get to enjoy it while they are wearing 80's fashions. There are few...

Promising Young Woman
Simply put, this is one of the best movies of the year. Carey Mulligan, who is typically amazing in everything she is in, gives the best performance of her career to this point. She plays a woman set on revenge, but she doesn't just charge ahead without thinking. No, she is playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers. She also shows the complexity of her acting skills by playing a very smart, but damaged person who has the ability to make herself become the object of desire for any man. She goes from drunk to...

News of the World
We already know that 2020 has been the weirdest year ever, but now we may be witnessing the strangest phenomenon yet. This is Tom Hanks's second film this year where he is the powerhouse actor he always is, but he's not going to get a Best Actor nomination this year. It's not that he doesn't deserve it for this role, it's just that the field is so stacked this year, Hanks is the odd man out. If there were an Oscar for best child actor, they could go ahead and engrave Elizabeth Marvel's name on that...

Greenland
This is one of those movies that you really need to see on the big screen, but it's 2020 so it skipped the theaters and went straight to VOD. So what you need to do is find a friend with the biggest entertainment system and watch it at their house. These apocalypse flicks tend to go one way or another, very rarely are they just okay. They are either completely stupid and eye-rollingly bad, or they are filled with a ton of suspense and edge-of-your-seat action. Thankfully, this one is the latter. ...

FATALE
Three decades ago a movie came out called Fatal Attraction. It was a huge hit and ended up getting six Oscar nominations. Now, 33 years later, this movie comes along with an almost identical plot. And while this film is decent, it doesn't hold a candle to the original. There is nothing overtly wrong or bad about this movie, it's just not amazing. It's one of those that you see and after it's over you say, "that was fine for what it was." It does have a few moments of suspense, and a few...

MONSTER HUNTER
If we ever needed a film to sum up what the year 2020 felt like, this is it. One minute everything is going along just fine, and then WHAM a massive storm sweeps you into a completely unknow world of danger and isolation. Thankfully Milla Jovovich is there to save the day. (I wonder if she could do the same for 2020?) This is not anywhere near what one might consider to be an "important" film, or a "smart" film. No, this is just a good old monster flick. All you need is a big bucket of...

ANOTHER ROUND
Me: Oh, Denmark, what kind of crazy are you bringing to the holiday party this year? Denmark: Here, hold my beer. I have a feeling that when they made this film, they started off sober and were completely wasted by the end. The first 20 minutes are fairly plain and slow, but then it starts to pick up steam. And by the end of the movie it turns into an all out party. This film is filled with great acting. It must have been very difficult to go...

THE STAND IN
I saw this movie several days ago and I'm still not quite sure what I saw. It's billed as a comedy, but it isn't funny. Sure, there are one or two laughs in it, but this is much more dramatic than it is comedic. Although that leads us to our next conundrum because this isn't a drama either. It gets pretty dark, but the reality is, the stakes are never high enough for us to care about the outcome. It also has elements of a Rom-Com, but it isn't that either. The best I say...

THE PROM
Do you love musicals? Are you a fan of Broadway? Do you consider MAMA MIA to be one of the greatest movies of all time? Well, get ready to move it down a notch, because it is time to go to THE PROM. This is a fantastically funny musical that is essentially FOOTLOOSE for a new generation. The songs are catchy, and the lyrics are hysterical. The costumes are out of this world, and the story is captivating. This film is an emotional roller coaster in the...

Half Brothers
When I saw the trailer for this film I thought it was going to attempt to be a riotously hilarious road trip, buddy comedy. Then I saw the film and realized it was something much more than that. While it does have several laughs, it isn't nearly as funny as your typical, straight-up comedy. But what it is lacking in laughs, it makes up for with a sweet story full of heart. Each of the main characters has a deep backstory that is revealed throughout the film. And as more and more...

All My Life
If you are a fan of romantic comedies, this is one of the best you will ever see. It is a laugh-out-loud funny, painfully adorable, heart-meltingly, gooey story played out by two of the most beautiful people in Hollywood. Oh, and it is also a film that will rip your heart out, smash it into a million pieces, put those pieces in a blender, but then give it back to you in the form of a love smoothie. So come to the theater prepared. And by "prepared" I mean, bring along all of your girlfriends and...

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom
Wow! We may have lost the man and the talent of Chadwick Boseman, but he left us one final, beautiful, gift with his performance in MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM. And while it is a gift to us, it is also a performance that will most assuredly win him many acting awards. Add to his astounding performance the earth-shattering performance of Viola Davis and you have the beginnings of a very special film. I will be shocked if either Boseman or Davis are left out of the acting races. As of now, I consider both of them to...

Mank
If you are a fan of old, classic Hollywood. This is a must-see film. It is a complete homage to cinema and the people behind it in the early 1940s. One of the most fascinating aspects of this film is how they incorporate the script writing into the film itself. You'll see scene setting descriptions pop up throughout the film written in the appropriate style and type for a true Hollywood screenplay. It keeps bringing you back to the fact that this is a movie about writing a movie. The film is...

Godmothered
I watched this film with my family a couple of weeks ago and two things immediately stuck out to me. 1. Isla Fisher is in a Disney movie? 2. Jillian Bell is in a Disney movie!?!?!?!?!?!? Kudos to the casting director on this one. Bell, best known for being the poster child for raunchy comedies, plays a Fairy Godmother in training who ends up in the real world and hasn't got a clue about how anything works. Fisher plays a single mom, jaded by the struggles of adulthood,...
