Rating Title/Year Author
3.5/5 Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Allison Rose The whole team returns for the sequel and their chemistry is even better than the first time. Johnson does a great De Vito impression and he and Hart makes a great duo. EDIT

4/5 Hustlers (2019) Allison Rose Lopez is the real gem, stealing every moment she is on screen. She is powerful and demands attention whether she is speaking or dancing. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2019
4.5/5 Ready or Not (2019) Allison Rose Ready or Not combines humor and murder to create a deliciously wonderful film and brought a surprise hit with critical acclaim to movie theaters this summer. EDIT
Posted Dec 5, 2019
4.5/5 The Aeronauts (2019) Allison Rose Redmayne and Jones are individually strong in their performances, but together they are unstoppable. EDIT
Posted Dec 5, 2019
3.5/5 Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Allison Rose Blanchette brings Bernadette to life with a quirky, snarky ambivalence that adds texture to the character. EDIT
Posted Nov 27, 2019
4.5/5 Queen & Slim (2019) Allison Rose While Queen & Slim is a raw and shocking commentary on our society these days, I am not sure it will click with general audiences. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
3.5/5 Angel Has Fallen (2019) Allison Rose Nick Nolte is perfectly cast as Mike's "off the grid - antigovernment" father. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
3/5 Knives Out (2019) Allison Rose With a star-studded cast and written and directed by filmmaker, Rian Johnson, Knives Out should have been a no brainer hit. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2019
4.5/5 Blinded by the Light (2019) Allison Rose Kalra is terrific in his role as the introverted, misunderstood son who blossoms under his newfound voice in the form of Springsteen's lyrics. EDIT
Posted Nov 19, 2019
4/5 Frozen II (2019) Allison Rose The animation is incredible. Probably some of the best I have ever seen. EDIT
Posted Nov 14, 2019
5/5 Ford v Ferrari (2019) Allison Rose Ford vs. Ferrari is one of this year's best films and Bale and Damon's performances help make it a winner. EDIT
Posted Nov 13, 2019
3.5/5 Good Boys (2019) Allison Rose The cast, for being so young, is excellent. Trembly is already a seasoned professional with a number of terrific performances under his belt. EDIT
Posted Nov 12, 2019
2.5/5 () Allison Rose Hildebrand is great and Convery and Slater are adorable in this film. EDIT
Posted Nov 7, 2019
3.5/5 The Art of Racing in the Rain (2019) Allison Rose Ventimiglia is solid and Seyfried, a personal favorite of mine, does a wonderful job as a loving, supportive wife. EDIT
Posted Nov 6, 2019
3.5/5 Universal Soldier (1992) Allison Rose What Emmerich does do is present some very good action sequences which is probably why he was offered the opportunity to direct Independence Day. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2019
3.5/5 Doctor Sleep (2019) Allison Rose McGregor always gives a wonderful performance whether he is a song and dance man or if, in this case, he is a tortured and broken man trying to outrun his past. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2019
3.5/5 Red Heat (1988) Allison Rose It is fairly obvious why Schwarzenegger was chosen to play the role of Danko in Red Heat. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2019
3.5/5 Charlie's Angels (2000) Allison Rose Barrymore is the best of the three here but the group has great chemistry and they work well as a cohesive unit. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2019
4.5/5 Scarface (1983) Allison Rose Pacino is a brilliant actor and his portrayal of a Cuban immigrant in Scarface is a perfect example of his work. EDIT
Posted Oct 26, 2019
3/5 Black and Blue (2019) Allison Rose Black and Blue is a story that should be told... EDIT
Posted Oct 24, 2019
4.5/5 Galaxy Quest (1999) Allison Rose While Galaxy Quest starts off like any other parody, it morphs into a truly human story about people, their humanity, their fragility, and their insecurities. EDIT
Posted Oct 22, 2019
3/5 Stuber (2019) Allison Rose This film is the poor man's equivalent to Deadpool and Dopinder with not nearly as hilarious results. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2019
4.5/5 Crawl (2019) Allison Rose What Jaws did for sharks in 1975, Crawl has now done for alligators... EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
4.5/5 The Secret Life of Pets (2016) Allison Rose In a summer of sequels and lackluster movies, this film is a stand out in the crowd and once again reminds us why Illumination Entertainment is a force to be reckoned with in the world of animation. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
2/5 The Adderall Diaries (2015) Allison Rose With terrific source material, The Adderall Diaries should have been a deeply moving introspective look at various views of the same memories, but, sadly, falls short. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
4.5/5 The Legend of Tarzan (2016) Allison Rose The cinematography (in The Legend of Tarzan) is spectacular and makes you want to hop on a plane and fly to Africa. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
3/5 The BFG (2016) Allison Rose The fantasy world of the "dream tree" is magical though and gives The BFG a sense of whimsy and playfulness it desperately needs. Unfortunately, those moments are too few to make a significant difference to the overall story. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
4.5/5 Shrek (2001) Allison Rose With the perfect blend of storytelling, animation, and music this is one movie (Shrek) the whole family can enjoy! EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2019
4.5/5 Joker (2019) Allison Rose Phoenix delivers an Oscar-worthy performance in The Joker. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
4.5/5 Midnight Special (2016) Allison Rose In an era of remakes and sequels, Midnight Special offers something a little fresh and different. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
2/5 The Other Side of the Door (2016) Allison Rose If you want to be scared out of your mind, I suggest you choose a different film - Paranormal Activity perhaps. The other side of the door was an idea that had some potential, but it definitely doesn't live up to it. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
4.5/5 Mean Girls (2004) Allison Rose This is an all-star cast at the beginnings of their careers and their talent is evident even at this early stage. EDIT
Posted Oct 3, 2019
4.5/5 The Innocents (2016) Allison Rose The Innocents (Les Innocentes) is a masterful look at how our experiences shape and change us. The messages of perseverance and hope in a time of despair are powerful. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
3.5/5 Jason Bourne (2016) Allison Rose After the Bourne Legacy, the franchise needed a boost and it certainly got one with this latest film. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
2.5/5 Ghostbusters (2016) Allison Rose McCarthy isn't funny and her voice is annoyingly nasal. Wiig is slightly better but mostly uninspired. Jones adds a few moments of hilarity and a streetwise toughness that works most of the time, but the real star is McKinnon. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
4/5 The Infiltrator (2016) Allison Rose Well told, nicely paced, and beautifully acted, The Infiltrator, left me craving more at the end. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
4.5/5 Green Room (2015) Allison Rose I would be remiss if I didn't mention the tragic, unexpected passing of Anton Yelchin. If Green Room is any indication of what is to come, he was a huge talent with a bright future ahead of him. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
4.5/5 Eddie the Eagle (2016) Allison Rose Despite its flaws, Eddie the Eagle boasts a strong cast, good script and, like Eddie himself, a lot of heart. Watch it at least once. You won't regret it. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
3.5/5 Wiener-Dog (2016) Allison Rose Todd Solondz Once Again Shows His Panache for The Hilariously Morbid With Wiener-Dog. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
3.5/5 Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) Allison Rose It isn't surprising that Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is written by Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O'Brien as it encompasses the same humor that they have given us in the past with Neighbors. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
5/5 Pan's Labyrinth (2006) Allison Rose Del Toro is a magnificent story teller and this labor of love is one of his many masterpieces. EDIT
Posted Oct 1, 2019
4.5/5 Gremlins (1984) Allison Rose If you grew up in the '80's and remember a simpler time without cell phones or you want to introduce your kids to the "magic" of 1980's films then Gremlins is a great place to start. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
4.5/5 Little Men (2016) Allison Rose While only an hour and a half long, Little Men is packed full of meaning and emotions. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
3/5 War Dogs (2016) Allison Rose Director Todd Phillips graduates from schtick comedy to more serious subject matter with this film but still manages to interject moments of "slapstick" that remind you of his previous success. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
4.5/5 Sausage Party (2016) Allison Rose I dub Sausage Party "The soft porn of the animated food industry". EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
2/5 Pete's Dragon (2016) Allison Rose Pete's Dragon itself is dark, depressing and not suitable for its intended audience -families with young children. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
5/5 Hell or High Water (2016) Allison Rose I'm not sure Jeff Bridges makes a bad film anymore, but if he does, he is usually the bright spot. True to form, he plays his character well. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
4.5/5 Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) Allison Rose Simon Helberg is masterful at displaying emotion without saying a word and stands toe to toe with these screen giants in every scene. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
3.5/5 Suicide Squad (2016) Allison Rose Does Suicide Squad live up to the hype? No, no it doesn't. Is it absolutely horrible? No, no it isn't. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
4/5 Confirmation (2016) Allison Rose With a movie like Confirmation, you need a solid script to hold audience attention and HBO got one with writer Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich). EDIT
