68% Joker (2019) It's one of these movies with all the ingredients of a great movie, but manages to not be...the story editing, the film editing cut the legs out from so much of it. I admired it from a visual standpoint, but not feeling much of anything. - Double Toasted EDIT

79% Good Boys (2019) This might be the funniest movie I've seen this year...it caught me early, and I was surprised by just how funny it started out. - Double Toasted EDIT

99% The Farewell (2019) Awkwafina is our avatar here...you really get to know her, fall in love with her...a lot of this is getting a sense of what life in China is like on the day-to-day. - Double Toasted EDIT

73% The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019) This could've been cut to an hour and twenty minutes...something that would work better on television. - Double Toasted EDIT

41% 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019) The stuff with the sharks actually works, as dumb as this movie is. And it's pretty dumb. The environment was working, I just wish it was a smarter movie. - Double Toasted EDIT

67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) At the halfway point, it just stops trying to be a better movie, in favor of its action and its sets. I don't hate it, but it's not as good as the Fast & Furious movies. - Double Toasted EDIT

84% Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) Structurally, I mean, what else are you going to do? I was back and forth about it. This isn't a "good movie," but it's better than a Disney channel movie. - Double Toasted EDIT

85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Tarantino has never stopped being a good filmmaker, but he stopped being a good storyteller a long time ago. It was flawed in ways it really didn't need to be...it's baffling that there wasn't a better, more cohesive overall vision. - Double Toasted EDIT

82% Crawl (2019) It's a bottle film basically, and that's what really works...this is a fun movie, a summer palette-cleanser. - Double Toasted EDIT

53% The Lion King (2019) The technology is incredible, but it lacks depth and emotion. - Double Toasted EDIT

42% Stuber (2019) The longer the movie went on, the more we got it...but it was fun watching these actors all the way through. If you watch it at home, you'll have a blast. - Double Toasted EDIT

23% Dark Phoenix (2019) I didn't hate it, because there was potential for something good, but the problems are numerous, and people were laughing at the screen...there's a lot of really, laughably-bad dialogue... - Double Toasted EDIT

89% Rocketman (2019) I liked it for the most part, and certain songs have been stuck in my head, but the cycle of repetition undermined it a bit. Still, a fantastic movie. - Double Toasted EDIT

59% The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) The overall stories weren't working so much, they all felt like a planned series that got cancelled... - Double Toasted EDIT

79% Late Night (2019) At the end of its day, it reached its goal, entertained me and made me laugh...yet hanging by a thread sometimes. - Double Toasted EDIT

56% The Dead Don't Die (2019) The set-up had potential, and there were laughs, but it all evaporated by the second half as things were thrown in without supporting the narrative. - Double Toasted EDIT

41% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) It delivers everything you could've had on your wish-list, if you're a fan...for me, what it does do right is the spectacle, and it's really really right. - Double Toasted EDIT

57% Aladdin (2019) It's inspired at times, not always...moments of inspiration amid plodding...the placement of songs was plain and distracting. - Double Toasted EDIT

56% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) There were great moments, but this is definitely something you don't need to watch at the theater...I wasn't all that interested in it, and I don't want to play into Ted Bunny fever... - Double Toasted EDIT
