TOM'S GRADING SCALE:
B- and above: Thumbs Up
C+ or below: Thumbs Down
New on Netflix this weekend is the romantic-comedy, "Always Be My Maybe," a fairly average entry into the genre elevated to "must-see" status because of a hilarious extended cameo...and an original song that is my current vote for Best Song of 2019.
Taron Egerton sets the bar for Best Actor of 2019 with his electric, transformative portrayal of Elton John in the rock-fantasy, "Rocketman."
Two new films are available on Netflix this Memorial Day weekend, with one aimed at kids and one aimed squarely at adults.
A whole new world? Hardly. The new, completely unnecessary live-action re-make of Disney's animated classic, "Aladdin" should have stayed bottled up.
The R-rated comedy "Booksmart" is being touted as the female "Superbad," but that's because it's super-good.
Kenneth Branagh has lived to portray William Shakespeare, and does a fine job, but "All is True" seems intended only for fellow die-hard Shakespearean devotees, and no one else.
The world of John Wick exponentially expands in its third chapter, but the more we learn about this organized criminal underworld, the less interesting it, and our hero, becomes.
Chronicling the real-life trials and tribulations of convicted murderer Cameron Todd Willingham, Edward Zwick's by-the-book courtroom drama is ignited by its two lead performances.
NETFLIX Review: In 'See You Yesterday' even time-travel is no match for social injustice
"See You Yesterday" is a sharp time-travel story that takes on some weighty subject matter...but despite its teenage stars, it is definitely meant for adults.
What dirty rotten scoundrels. Oh, not Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway. I'm talking about whomever it was that decided to breathe life into this cruddy remake of a remake.
