Take my film critic credentials and throw them in the ocean. "Dolittle" is not good...it's quite bad in fact. Still, there's worse ways to spend a weekend afternoon with the kiddies. A glowing endorsement, right?
"Les Misérables" is maybe an unfortunate title for this electric thriller that will confuse viewers who are expecting to see Jean Valjean and a few song and dance numbers. But in telling a more modern story, themes of inequality, class oppression and street-level rage eerily feel like echoes from Victor Hugo's classic novel, and send home the message that the more things change, the more things stay the same.
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence re-team as "bad boys" in this third - and final? - installment that started way back in 1995.
Director Sam Mendes has pulled off a visually-stunning, epic war film, but it's "one-shot" gimmick works against it.
There are actually a few things to like about "Underwater," but unfortunately, there are just too many holes to keep this ship afloat.
There's no question that "Just Mercy" tells an important real-life story about a man wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death row. But outside of one great performance, it's a bit too straight-laced and straight-forward to add anything new.
2020 doesn't just mark a new year, it's the dawn of a new decade. Like several other critics and outlets, I too have taken this opportunity to reflect back at the past 10 years and have come up with my list of favorite films. Some have resonated even more over the years, whereas others were nearly forgotten.
Some of my "top" films of previous years also haven't held up quite as well to the rigors of time, but ALL of these films still are powerful, emotional and represent the best of cinema in all genres. So let's get to it, shall we?
The year is coming to a close, and it's been one heck of a year for film. Read on for my list of the Best Movies of 2019!
"Uncut Gems" is a high-wire act of mood and energy, and it will pummel your senses. It's also one of the best movies of 2019, if you can endure it.
We've seen numerous adaptations of the classic Louisa May Alcott novel on the small and big screens, but remixed and led by director Greta Gerwig, this version of "Little Women" soars to new heights.
