Posted Nov 16, 2019
8/10 Knives Out (2019) Rachel Wagner The characters are kooky and the twists surprising, which makes for a really good time at the theater. EDIT

Posted Nov 10, 2019
2/10 Playing With Fire (2019) Rachel Wagner It's one of those films that think being made for kids is synonymous with making it stupid. Of course, the truth is the reverse EDIT
Posted Nov 10, 2019
0/10 Arctic Dogs (2019) Rachel Wagner I hated pretty much everything about it. Avoid it at all costs and support better animated films EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2019
6/10 Christmas Jars (2019) Rachel Wagner Christmas Jars will definitely be something families can watch together for a cheesy batch of Christmas feels! EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2019
9/10 Parasite (2019) Rachel Wagner The writing is fantastic, as well as the acting, production design and score EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2019
6/10 One Piece: Stampede (2019) Rachel Wagner It reminded me of an anime take on Mad Max Fury Road with all these pirates racing to find a buried treasure EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2019
6/10 Seishun Buta Yaro wa Yumemiru Shoujo no Yume wo Minai (2019) Rachel Wagner It was interesting with beautiful animation. Even being a greenie I'd say it is worth a watch. EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2019
3/10 Midway (2019) Rachel Wagner The problem is this is 2019 and such a jingoistic approach feels woefully outdated and simplistic. EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2019
3/10 Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Rachel Wagner For a film with this much action I should not be so bored EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2019

Posted Oct 18, 2019
4.5/10 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Rachel Wagner It's a real bummer because if they had kept the strange tone of the early scenes I could have had a surprise hit. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
3.5/10 Lucy in the Sky (2019) Rachel Wagner A big case of wasted potential. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
3.5/10 Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (2002) Rachel Wagner It's crazy how something with so many pieces can still feel so slow and bland? I'm sure some anime fans will be horrified by that statement but there it is. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
2/10 Judy (2019) Rachel Wagner The poor singing choices, generic script and screaming-for-an-Oscar performances make Judy a big miss EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2019
2/10 Can You Keep a Secret? (2019) Rachel Wagner Hoechlin is super dishy but he and Daddario have no chemistry together. Most of the time it is awkward and uncomfortable which is not what you want in this kind of escapist romcom. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2019
2/10 Overcomer (2019) Rachel Wagner There's one moment where Priscilla Shirer literally compliments her own prayer and I laughed out loud EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2019
8.5/10 Out of Liberty (2019) Rachel Wagner A well written, moving character piece that is both a study of faith and a Western jailbreak survival story EDIT
Posted Sep 21, 2019

Posted Sep 18, 2019
8/10 Downton Abbey (2019) Rachel Wagner Rarely do I get to have such fun with a film, and I am going to relish in it. It's an event worthy of the Queen. EDIT

Posted Sep 13, 2019
5.5/10 Ad Astra (2019) Rachel Wagner It's not perfect but I'd say the good outweighs the bad. And it's so pretty! EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2019
4/10 Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Rachel Wagner I know we are supposed to care for Bernadette and her stifled artistry but I just didn't. She was too irrational and self-centered to win any sympathy from me which made the movie tough to get through EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2019
2/10 Otherhood (2019) Rachel Wagner Sometimes the actresses can elevate the material but most of the time they all feel like caricatures not characters. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2019
3/10 Murder Mystery (2019) Rachel Wagner The problem with this movie is it's just not funny. I don't know if I even laughed one time. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2019
6/10 Angel Has Fallen (2019) Rachel Wagner I like this kind of 90s-style action movie so I had fun watching it. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2019
2/10 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019) Rachel Wagner The kills are on a Sharknado level making it all feel silly rather than tense EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2019
6/10 Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Rachel Wagner You know it is silly and not realistic at all but it's done with enough style to get you and make you smile. EDIT
Posted Aug 11, 2019
6.5/10 Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) Rachel Wagner it was a fun lark but mostly forgettable EDIT
Posted Aug 11, 2019
3/10 The Kitchen (2019) Rachel Wagner It honestly felt like a more brutally violent version of a Lifetime mafia movie EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
7/10 The Art of Racing in the Rain (2019) Rachel Wagner A sweet little movie about family and never giving up on your dreams EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2019
7.5/10 Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) Rachel Wagner It's a funny, odd, sweet adventure the whole family will like. EDIT
Posted Aug 4, 2019
8.5/10 The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) Rachel Wagner It's one of those movies that captures a sense of time and place very well and we enjoy spending time with these characters. EDIT
Posted Aug 4, 2019
6.5/10 Take Shelter (2011) Rachel Wagner I would definitely recommend watching Take Shelter for the incredible dream sequences and the great performances. It will definitely leave you thinking and there's something to be said for that EDIT
Posted Aug 3, 2019
6.5/10 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Rachel Wagner I'd say it is as unwieldy as its title but mostly a good silly time at the theater. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
8.5/10 Shadow (2018) Rachel Wagner If you are a fan of visually dazzling films with heart than you will leave the theater awestruck by it. EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2019
6/10 The Fighting Preacher (2019) Rachel Wagner The Fighting Preacher, is a bit uneven but overall it succeeds in telling a sentimental true story about tolerance, kindness and how a Christian spirit will win over hate every time. EDIT
Posted Jul 25, 2019
8.5/10 Wild Rose (2018) Rachel Wagner Fans of musicals and just good storytelling will love Wild Rose, and Julie Walters performance is one of the best of the year EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2019
8/10 Crawl (2019) Rachel Wagner Crawl knows it is a creature scares movie with 2 people dealing with gators and it executes that concept very well. It's as simple as that. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
3/10 The Lion King (2019) Rachel Wagner There are no two ways around it. It's bland, bland, bland. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
10/10 The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) Rachel Wagner If you haven't seen 'The Best Years of Our Lives' don't wait as long as I did to give it a watch. You will be rewarded by a moving story of love, family, and the ability of the human spirit to turn the worst years into the best. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2019
8/10 Papi chulo (2018) Rachel Wagner Papi Chulo is a bit too casual in its treatment of moments of serious mental health crisis in Sean's life but it has a huge heart I couldn't resist EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2019
6/10 Echo in the Canyon (2018) Rachel Wagner The long sections of a tribute concert were distracting from the musical story of the classic bands...Still I enjoyed it well enough to recommend to any music fan EDIT
Posted Jul 5, 2019
4/10 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Rachel Wagner I enjoyed Tom Holland as Spider-Man...and Zendaya as MJ but unfortunately I did not like the villain plot...I found it convoluted, predictable and dull EDIT

Posted Jun 28, 2019
7/10 The Other Side of Heaven 2: Fire of Faith (2019) Rachel Wagner it's got enough heart and a great lead performance to be worth a watch EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2019
B+ Descendants (2015) Rachel Wagner They did a really good job with the casting of the villain parents and.... you can tell they're having the time of their lives. EDIT
