7/10 83% Detroit (2017) Prepare for your emotions to go up and down. I'd also encourage you to do some research on the actual historical event. It never hurts to really see how far we've come, or if little progress has been made at all. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8/10 70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Annabelle Creation has given me new hope that future spin off films in this franchise have the potential to be good. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8.5/10 75% Crown Heights (2017) Crown Heights was simply an amazing movie to me. It gives you a slightly different perspective of the prison system. I thought it was great to see the effects of what prison life could do an actual innocent person. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8/10 69% mother! (2017) I think this may be one of those movies that movie purists, critics, and others in the film industry will simply drool all over. It's without question a very original movie. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7/10 35% American Assassin (2017) It's the type of action, popcorn flick you go see when you simply want to be entertained. If you go in with high expectations, or plan on doing some deep analysis on this film then you've become your own enemy. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8/10 53% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Kingsman was well worth the watch in theaters in my opinion. It's a fun movie and pure entertainment. If you haven't already, be sure to watch the previous movie first. Otherwise you'll miss just about 45% of all the references and even some jokes. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8.5/10 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Blade Runner 2049 was a solid movie. I think what hurts the movie, however, is not even the film's own fault. The swelled up expectations and anticipation behind the first film loomed over this sequel. - The Movie Blog EDIT

6.5/10 39% The Mountain Between Us (2017) You should know going into the film that it is probably 65% romance/drama and only 35% suspenseful survival story. If you go in with those expectations, I think you'll better appreciate the film. - The Movie Blog EDIT

5.5/10 28% Suburbicon (2017) Suburbicon could've been a great, funny, socially conscious film. Regrettably, it's just not that deep. It's a pretty random film that probably lives up to the expectations of the Cohen brothers. - The Movie Blog EDIT

9/10 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Going into the film, I was very concerned about the comedy being overbearing. Waititi created a perfect blend of both drama and humor that essentially made the movie even more so entertaining. - The Movie Blog EDIT

9/10 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) I should say, that Star Wars the Last Jedi is the best Star Wars film we have to date by default. This film is a natural progression of the Star Wars films because it incorporates all the good things we loved about the previous Star Wars films. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7/10 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Overall I'd say Jumanji was an enjoyable, fun and entertaining film. Whether it lived up to the previous film is going to be up to the viewer. Personally, I think that both films excelled in different areas. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7/10 88% Annihilation (2018) It's worth a watch in theaters, but I would just caution to expect for a very heavy, and thought-provoking film. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7/10 32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) To this day, I can still think of the crazy and scary moments of the first two Insidious films. I can't say that about The Last Key no matter how much of a fan I may be with this franchise. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8.5/10 76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) It's worth a watch in theaters, but I would just caution to expect for a very heavy, and thought-provoking film. Even then, you're probably still not ready to watch it. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7/10 51% Tomb Raider (2018) Tomb Raider is a pretty safe video game movie that simply doesn't take any risks. - The Movie Blog EDIT

6/10 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) There were many times when the movie felt like it was on the right track, but then all of a sudden gets slightly derailed, and then back on track. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8/10 95% A Quiet Place (2018) A Quiet Place is like the definition of a true horror/thriller. Many of the scenes were so intense that you'll be on the edge of your seat. You may even hold your own breath trying not to make a sound too. - The Movie Blog EDIT

6/10 42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) I do get the sense that this story is better to be imagined rather than seen on the big screen. I think Ava Duvernay is an amazing talent as a director, but this movie could only go so far. - The Movie Blog EDIT

6.5/10 32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) While it has been a long time in between films, I think that Super Troopers 2 was made specifically for fans of the group. Before going into this film, you practically must rewatch Super Troopers again to fully appreciate what they do in this sequel. - The Movie Blog EDIT

4.8/10 49% Downsizing (2017) Downsizing was simply just not a good movie, in my opinion. I wanted it to be good mainly because the concept seemed really original. - The Movie Blog EDIT

53% Once Upon a Deadpool (2018) It's got a ton of pop culture references, easter eggs, and cameos that will continue to keep you entertained for the entire movie. I think because of that great mix, both comic book fans and even casual moviegoers will appreciate this film. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7.5/10 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) I think in this case, it's kinda like a magician revealing their tricks. It's still interesting to know and see, but it does lose some of the edge too. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8/10 87% Upgrade (2018) Upgrade explores a very interesting dynamic between humans and technology. It's not a new concept, but the way it's explored feels fresh and different. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7/10 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) All in all, Hotel Artemis is well worth the watch in theaters. I can't say that it'll have the same impact or effect that the unexpected hit John Wick achieved. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7/10 69% Ocean's 8 (2018) Ocean's 8 simply feels a little too cookie-cutter. - The Movie Blog EDIT

9/10 93% Incredibles 2 (2018) It's hard to recapture or exceed that magical feeling of seeing something new and unique as the first Incredibles presented itself to be. Incredibles 2 is such a worthy sequel that it certainly warrants another sequel to become a bigger franchise. - The Movie Blog EDIT

6/10 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom feels like it sacrificed the authenticity and charm of the original Jurassic Park film in exchange for cheap entertainment and laughs. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8.5/10 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) It absolutely blows the previous Ant-Man film out of the water. The film is also full of heart too which makes this a pretty decent film to watch with the whole family. - The Movie Blog EDIT

6/10 54% The First Purge (2018) Can't say that's a bad or good thing just because the film clearly appeared to pay direct homage to the Bruce Willis classic action film. The First Purge was entertaining for what it was. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7.5/10 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) If you're a fan of Denzel Washington then I think we can all agree that this movie is just padding his stats at this point. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8/10 96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Given the current political climate, and the high racial tensions in society, you have to laugh at the outrageous humor to keep yourself from crying at the extreme racism in this film. BlacKKKlansman was entertaining, insightful and ever so timely. - The Movie Blog EDIT

6.5/10 32% Kin (2018) Kin is an interesting story and genre bender of a film. I think that viewers will have to go in with the understanding that the movie isn't going to be a typical sci-fi or drama. - The Movie Blog EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
7.5/10 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) A heartfelt, family drama that is no different than any other biopic you've already seen. As with other biopic films about musicians, the music will be a plus for fans of Queen, or a nice introduction for new listeners. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8.5/10 84% Creed II (2018) I was really hoping this would be the movie where he leaves the "Rocky nest" and spreads his wings and fly, but I suppose we'd have to wait and see in another potential sequel. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7.5/10 79% Halloween (2018) This movie brought some dignity back by erasing many of the previous Halloween movies. - The Movie Blog EDIT

9.5/10 91% Searching (2018) It does exactly what we would want any movie to do; it takes you for an emotional ride and never stops until the very end. All you have to do is just sit back and go along with it. - The Movie Blog EDIT

6/10 32% The Predator (2018) I think if you go into this film knowing that you're going to get a very different movie than the previous ones, then you'll probably have a better viewing experience than I did. - The Movie Blog EDIT

5/10 26% The Nun (2018) I can't say this is going to be the type of film that you'll want to plan your weekend for. At the very best, a discounted matinee watch would be the route to go, or feel free to wait for it to land on a streaming platform. - The Movie Blog EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
8/10 91% Widows (2018) Widows is exactly what you had hoped Ocean's 8 would've been, except with a much more dramatic tone. I think this film was able to showcase a group of women in a more practical way by allowing them to be both vulnerable and strong at the same time. - The Movie Blog EDIT

6.5/10 37% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald falls short of being a satisfactory standalone film. While there are reportedly five films in total for this Fantastic Beasts franchise, this movie felt like a long middle, transitional film. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7.5/10 78% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Mary Poppins Returns may not live up to the exact level of fame that the original has over time. However, it's most definitely a worthy film to go see with the whole family. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8/10 93% Bumblebee (2018) Bumblebee is an incredibly nice breath of fresh air compared to the previous Transformers movies. If you have been scarred or turned off by the Michael Bay version of the franchise, then this movie is certainly a welcomed change of pace. - The Movie Blog EDIT

8/10 65% Aquaman (2018) It's definitely worth the watch, and I do think that the best way to experience this movie would be on the biggest screen possible. I don't think that 3D would be necessary either. - The Movie Blog EDIT

9.5/10 97% Black Panther (2018) The film's futuristic depiction of black/African culture is nothing short of amazing. Especially since we've never seen anything like it on the big screen. Despite some CGI flaws, the direction, acting, story, and design is phenomenal. - The Movie Blog EDIT

7/10 37% Glass (2019) Glass is the comic book movie that tells an interesting story, but fails to give you the slam dunk ending it leads you to believe it'll deliver. - The Movie Blog EDIT
