Posted Oct 17, 2019
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Dominic Patten No need to go into a sub textual read or get caught in the minutia, but El Camino is a script that should have stayed a dream and nothing more. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
3/5 The Addams Family (2019) Pete Hammond Creepy, kooky, spooky and altogether ooky fun for longtime fans and new ones just discovering this unique family dynamic for the first time. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
2.5/5 Gemini Man (2019) Pete Hammond You get two Will Smiths for the price of one in Ang Lee's gimmicky action thriller, but the high frame rates and pedantic script undercut a good performance. EDIT

Posted Oct 8, 2019

Posted Oct 6, 2019
2.5 Lucy in the Sky (2019) Pete Hammond Natalie Portman gives it her all in uneven and pretty wacko space melodrama, but other than that there is not much to ponder in this "inspired by a true story" movie. EDIT

Posted Sep 18, 2019
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
Posted Sep 3, 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

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.

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

Posted Jul 19, 2019

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 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
