4/5 The Goldfinch (2019) Pete Hammond A lot of critics will predictably review the book instead of what is on screen but this impressive motion picture adaptation of Donna Tartt's Pulitizer Prize winning Best Seller has to stand on its own as a MOVIE , and that it does. EDIT
Posted Sep 9, 2019
3/5 It: Chapter Two (2019) Pete Hammond It is Big Chills as the Losers Club reunions in Derry 27 years after first defeating evil shape-shifting Pennywise, and now we have the concluding chapter of Stephen King's clown show- and IT is even better than the first one. EDIT

5/5 Joker (2019) Pete Hammond Joaquin Phoenix kills it in dark, timely DC origin movie that is no laughing matter. Will he be second Joker to win an Oscar? EDIT
Posted Aug 31, 2019
2.5/5 Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Pete Hammond Cate Blanchett rises above a quirky but uneven movie and saves the day, at least for her fans. EDIT
Posted Aug 23, 2019

Posted Aug 23, 2019
3/5 Ready or Not (2019) Pete Hammond Here Comes The Blood in a darkly funny wedding horror show that is highly entertaining if you can handle the gore. EDIT
Posted Aug 23, 2019
3/5 Good Boys (2019) Pete Hammond Jabob Tremblay and pals score big laughs in this comedy filled with dirty words and heart -- just don't bring anyone along who is actually their age. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
3/5 The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019) Pete Hammond Our fine feathered friends are back with some hilarious stuff proving the second time around for these Angry birds is superior to the original. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
3/5 After the Wedding (2019) Pete Hammond Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams shine (of course) in this American remake of the Danish Oscar nominated film. A bit melodramatic but a great vehicle for two superb actors. EDIT
Posted Aug 9, 2019
4/5 The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) Pete Hammond Shia LaBeouf and Zack Gottsagen make the perfect pair to go on the lam in this engaging Mark Twain-ish adventure that flows as smoothly as the river it takes place around. EDIT
Posted Aug 9, 2019
2.5/5 Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) Pete Hammond Strictly for those whose heads don't reach above the seat, this over-the-top slapsticky adventure is well-meaning and certainly enthusiastic, but it plays even more like kids TV than its original inspiration even did. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
4/5 Brian Banks (2018) Pete Hammond Aldis Hodge in a star-making performance in an inspirational and powerful true story set in an unjust system of justice. An important and timely movie . EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
5/5 The Art of Racing in the Rain (2019) Pete Hammond A purebred original and a human and humane motion picture that is glorious. A must for both dog and movie lovers. Kevin Costner as the voice of Enzo gives one of his best performances - and he's not even on screen. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
5/5 Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) Pete Hammond Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt make a dynamic pair in Quentin Tarantino's most personal - and best - movie yet. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2019
5/5 Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché (2018) Pete Hammond Cinephiles will be in heaven , but Be Natural is also an astounding story of how the very first woman director had her life's work wiped off Hollywood's map. It is also a great detective story about how she has been rediscovered. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2019
5/5 The Farewell (2019) Pete Hammond Awkwafina is at another crazy Asian wedding but this one comes from real life truths and lies . EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2019
2/5 Stuber (2019) Pete Hammond Give Kumail Nanjiani five stars for trying to lyft this overworked and overly violent action comedy, but to no avail. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2019
5/5 David Crosby: Remember My Name (2019) Pete Hammond The musical legend comes alive in a brutally honest and brilliantly composed documentary. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2019
4/5 This Changes Everything (2018) Pete Hammond A compelling and urgent documentary about gender inequity in Hollywood will prove an eye opener for women - and men - universally. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2019
4/5 The Lion King (2019) Pete Hammond All bow down to Jon Favreau's visually stunning triumph. If I didn't know better I would think this was a Disneynature movie, not a revolutionary form of animation. EDIT
Posted Jul 18, 2019
3/5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Pete Hammond This post Endgame Marvel Cinematic Universe entry is helped greatly by great European locales and a terrific Tom Holland, making this a Spider-Man who still has it. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2019
4/5 Yesterday (2019) Pete Hammond All you need is love and some great Beatles tunes to create a summer musical delight, and that is what Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis have done with Yesterday. EDIT

Posted Jun 24, 2019
5/5 Toy Story 4 (2019) Pete Hammond Woody and the gang are back in a sublime sequel that gets stolen by a spork named forky. Pixar just keeps topping itself. EDIT
Posted Jun 24, 2019
4/5 Wild Rose (2018) Pete Hammond A star is born in Jessie Buckley who makes Wild Rose a memorable movie to savor. EDIT
Posted Jun 24, 2019
3/5 Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Pete Hammond Another day, another doll as Warners seeks to squeeze every scare it can to conjure up more boxoffice from this toy, right on the heels of doll movies Toy Story 4 and Child's Play. It is fun too. EDIT
Posted Jun 24, 2019
2.5/5 The Dead Don't Die (2019) Pete Hammond Occasionally amusing , even inspired , but ultimately disappointing zombie satire from Jim Jarmusch largely wastes the talents of a game cast and is instantly forgettable. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2019
2/5 Men in Black: International (2019) Pete Hammond The fourth installment of the MiB franchise is one too many. Despite the efforts of Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, these stars should have stuck with Thor. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2019
3/5 Shaft (2019) Pete Hammond Samuel L. Jackson leads three generations of John Shafts in a fun action-filled reunion that is a smart take in a 2019 that is very much different than 1971 when the first Shaft came around. EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2019
4/5 Late Night (2019) Pete Hammond Emma Thompson rates highly in writer/co-star Mindy Kaling's delightful insightful comedy set in the world of late night TV talk shows. EDIT
Posted Jun 7, 2019

Posted Jun 6, 2019
2.5/5 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Pete Hammond He's Big, Bad, Loud, And Back - along with a few scary and scaly friends. Godzilla completists will line up. EDIT
Posted May 30, 2019
4/5 Rocketman (2019) Pete Hammond The ultimate Elton John movie musical Rocketman gets liftoff from a sensational performance by Taron Egerton. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2019
3/5 Ma (2019) Pete Hammond Octavia Spencer burns up the screen as a teenager's friend from hell in this entertaining horror movie that marks the Oscar winner's first leading role in a movie - and well deserved. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2019
Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear's 'All in the Family' and 'The Jeffersons' (2019) Dominic Patten The reprise of The Jeffersons' pilot was so authoritative that I forgot I was watching a staged throwback until that far-from-Gerald-Ford-era, Washington-instigated group hug right near the end. EDIT
Posted May 23, 2019
3/5 Tolkien (2019) Pete Hammond Nicholas Hoult is excellent in this origin story of how the Hobbit master found his inner Gandalf. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2019

Posted May 17, 2019
2/5 Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Pete Hammond Strictly for fans. Ryan Reynolds gives it a nice try but this live action/CGI Pokemon movie isn't all it could have been for those who don't worship the video game. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2019
4/5 A Dog's Journey (2019) Pete Hammond An emotional and heartfelt sequel with real purpose makes this a journey well worth taking. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2019
4/5 Trial by Fire (2018) Pete Hammond Ed Zwick delivers a powerful true story that takes the justice system in Texas and America head on. Superb performances from Jack O'Connell and Laura Dern. EDIT
Posted May 17, 2019
3.5/5 Long Shot (2019) Pete Hammond Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron are an improbable pairing for a romcom but it is a winning ticket all the way. Long Shot indeed, but it comes out on top even when Rogen goes too far with schtick. EDIT
Posted May 3, 2019
2.5/5 The Intruder (2019) Pete Hammond It's as ludicrous and completely lacking in credibility as you might expect , but it is also oddly entertaining thanks to a go-for-broke loopy psychotic turn from Dennis Quaid who makes this fun in its own way. EDIT
Posted May 3, 2019
3/5 UglyDolls (2019) Pete Hammond It may not be perfect but this snappy animated musical confection has plenty of charms of its own. EDIT
Posted May 3, 2019
