45% Murder Mystery (2019) Murder Mystery is neither a comedy nor a mystery. It's just bad behavior masquerading as mass entertainment. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

90% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Spider-Man: Far from Home builds upon what's come before and improves those elements that needed some help. The finished product is something that is fun, funny and heartfelt. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

53% The Lion King (2019) The Lion King makes slight alterations to its source material, which results in a slightly more adult version. If you loved the original, chances are fairly good you'll love this one, too. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is about Tarantino's fascination with revisionism and the idea that cinema has the power to right past wrongs. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

23% Men in Black International (2019) It's not a great film, and it's not even what I would consider to be a 'good' one. But, it's not meant to be. It's a fun romp through the galaxy, and Hemsworth and Thompson play off of each other beautifully. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

73% The Perfection (2019) For those who like their films a little darker than mainstream studios are willing to bankroll, The Perfection might be right for you. It's dirty, messy moviemaking with a message. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
82% Crawl (2019) Crawl isn't a film off which to base any logical deductions. It's also not a film you should see sober. Or at all. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) It's ridiculous fun, which is exactly why you go see one of these films. It won't win any Oscars, but it's a diverting way to spend a couple of hours. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

26% Otherhood (2019) Otherhood is a sad showcase for once mighty actresses - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
41% Point Blank (2019) A remake can be a dangerous thing. A remake of a film that is critically acclaimed and heavily appreciated must be done well. In the case of Netflix originalPoint Blank, the film proved to be a dangerous thing, and it wasn't done well. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

61% Falling Inn Love (2019) While you might be willing to give it a chance, Falling Inn Love will have you questioning whether Netflix's romance offerings are going to take you out on a second date, or you've got better things to do like wash your hair. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
95% The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) The Peanut Butter Falcon takes viewers on an adventure. It makes us think, and it makes us feel. If you're like me, you'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll be glad you took a chance on a Shia LaBeouf movie. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
88% Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) Brittany Runs a Marathon is a film about struggle and strife. Yes, it's also about a woman going from clinically obese to running the New York City marathon, but that's not the real struggle here. It's a film about learning to love yourself. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

63% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Velvet Buzzsaw just tries so hard. It wants to be artsy and on point. Unfortunately, it's all sizzle and no steak, a literal snooze-fest. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

60% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) The film is bloody, brutally violent and rather dull. The romance is awkward, the relationships stilted and the film's heroine rather uninteresting. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

99% Lady Bird (2017) The relationship between mothers and daughters is what's at the heart of Lady Bird, and while cringe-worthy at times, it's a beautiful, poignant story that resonated with me. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT

89% Big Hero 6 (2014) Big Hero 6 will entertain and amuse most, especially if you're a 10-year-old boy, but for me, it's only saving grace was a big, huggable robot. - The Daily Times (Tennessee) EDIT
