4/5 99% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) I tried to predict what was happening, and I was wrong every time. I like that...the acting was a bit different, and it took some time to get up to speed, but I really enjoyed it. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Dead Heist (2007) As crazy as it is, this is so entertaining. Big Daddy Kane was just out of his mind. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

3/5 75% Dawn of the Dead (2004) Entertaining, an easy way to pass an hour-and-a-half, some messed up scenes but I'm intrigued to hear that Zack Snyder wants to revisit... - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 63% Child's Play (2019) Short, entertaining, stupid, absolutely insane. Could have been a lot worse, but it could've been way better. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

3/5 92% Carrie (1976) Still disturbing, it still creeps me out and makes me dread it. It's unsettling, incredibly brutal, and satisfying by the end. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

3/5 69% Joker (2019) Phoenix's performance is something we're still talking about, which is rare these days...I've just had a lot of conversations, still, about this movie. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

4/5 88% Hustlers (2019) I really enjoyed this movie. J.Lo has an incredible dance scene, yes, but I really just liked this movie. It was good to see how much effort they put into this. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 69% Dirty Dancing (1987) I'm just glad it was an hour-and-a-half. I can see why it was a hit, but this is just all kinds of boring. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

4/5 62% It Chapter Two (2019) A great companion piece to the first one. At the end of the day, this can be broken down to a whole long mini-series. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

1/5 45% Higher Learning (1994) What is high...what is learning...yes it's a pretty decent cast, but it's all over the place, and I really wanted it to end. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

4/5 90% Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (2000) The flashback alone is a classic Batman scene. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

18% Jack (1996) Who is this movie for? Because the first 10 minutes alone are harrowing... I was terrified. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 83% Midsommar (2019) The performances saved the movie, as did the amazing cinematography...it was pretty good until the third act, when it falls off the rails really fast. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet We Belong Together (2018) Just bad acting, bad writing, Chris Stokes even being involved...not good, man. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 55% The Craft (1996) The effects are obviously a bit rough around the edges, and the acting is very mixed. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

1/5 28% Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh (1994) If I had to pay for the movie, I would have been furious. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

3/5 14% Action Jackson (1988) It's just fun to talk about. Vanity is beautiful in this...it's an easy way to pass the time. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 53% The Lion King (2019) I liked the visuals, and some of the new changes they tried to implement, but given the budget for this movie...it's almost like we're enabling bad behavior by constantly seeing these movies. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

4/5 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Some of the controversy is weird...but I trust every frame. At this point, you either like his movies or you don't. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

4/5 90% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) It didn't surprise me the way Homecoming did...but this is the cinematic Peter Parker to me now. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

3/5 41% To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar (1995) Entertaining, but some subplots weren't needed...there were payoffs that didn't make sense to me, but the actors brought their A-games. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

4/5 69% Purple Rain (1984) The live performances are dope...even The Time! However, the treatment of women was a bit abysmal, though at the time it was acceptable...the movie itself is entertaining. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

1/5 32% Shaft (2019) Not good, not a good use of my time, borderline abuse... - Medium Popcorn EDIT

3/5 57% Brightburn (2019) I wish it was a more organic chronicle of him turning evil...but they did a lot with a small budget, and there's potential for a bigger story. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

4/5 93% House Party (1990) Really fun, not too long, and I enjoyed myself as it kept going. Scenes with cops resonate today... - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 56% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Good performance from Efron, but he was stuck in a mediocre movie cashing in on the Ted Bundy trend. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

5/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) One of the best movies I've ever seen. One of the best payoffs...I was not disappointed. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 85% Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009) [A better grade] strictly on the merit of Nic Cage going so crazy... - Medium Popcorn EDIT

5/5 93% Us (2019) I loved the story, cinematography, cast, everything about this movie. Jordan Peele, keep doing your own thing, I'm gonna be there every time. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 52% Save the Last Dance (2001) This movie has sentimental value. But it's way too long, very boring, and the acting is weird, with 35-year-olds playing 19-year-olds. - Medium Popcorn EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2019
2/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) They really tried to cram it all in...boring, generic, by-the-book, which is unfortunate for Marvel's first female-lead movie. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 20% Serenity (2019) At one point the actors are really trying to give, and it was clear that the movie wasn't giving back. - Medium Popcorn EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2019
3/5 76% Abducted in Plain Sight (2017) A troubling but important story for people to hear...one of the craziest documentaries I've ever seen, albeit not the best produced. The reenactments were incredibly unsettling and confusing. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 67% Shaft (2000) Yeah, apparently John Singleton and Samuel L. Jackson did not get along on set...probably why this movie's such a mess. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

3/5 92% High Flying Bird (2019) It's a small-scale movie I don't think I'll be watching any time soon, but would definitely recommend it. One of the better sports movies I've seen in a while. - Medium Popcorn EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2019
4/5 82% Love and Basketball (2000) This is a classic...but it does have some problematic elements with an adult viewing. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

3/5 95% If Beale Street Could Talk (2019) I liked it, but I thought the editing was very distracting and it was a little slow in some parts. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

1/5 29% The Meteor Man (1993) They were shooting for the fences and clearly ran into the fence by accident. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

3/5 65% Aquaman (2018) It's a fun movie, a little long, but the pacing of the action is actually pretty good... - Medium Popcorn EDIT

1/5 63% Bird Box (2018) I'm never seeing this movie again. It's a bad hybrid of thriller and end-of-the-world movies I've seen. - Medium Popcorn EDIT

2/5 9% Blank Check (1994) You just can't congratulate films this bad...I think this was a money-grab from all the actors. - Medium Popcorn EDIT
