It’s been five years since The LEGO Movie became a surprise hit, but those five years were spent to good effect. The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is almost as good as the original.
At first, Wretch plays like a slightly less lo-fi Blair Witch Project (color, b*tches!), what with it following three friends heading into the woods.
The pattern is familiar, but the motivation is completely different – what was meant to be a night of smoking some primo product and having some fun turns into something completely different.
M. Night Shyamalan got his career back on track with a couple of self-financed films (The Visit, Split) that did well critically and at the Box Office.
The revelation that Split was a sequel (to Unbreakable, to my mind his best film) provoked a lot of speculation – along with the critical acclaim and financial success.
Glass is neither as deliberate and moody as Unbreakable nor as spectacular as Split, but it is a solid conclusion to the trilogy.
Detective Erin Bell sets out to right a wrong that occurred because, as a young undercover officer twenty years ago, she made a series of wrong decisions.
Destroyer features a two-pronged performance from Kidman – the earnest near-rookie from twenty-four years ago and the angry, drunken, intense performance of Bell in the present.
Aquaman is likely to break $100 million at the North American box office this weekend and it deserves every penny.
This one terrific superhero movie.
Welcome to Marwen is the fictionalized story of how artist Mark Hogancamp survived a near fatal beating and, despite losing all his memories from before the beating, overcame that trauma and being in a coma for weeks, and came to be a well-regarded artist in a different field.
This is not just the story of one man overcoming overwhelming odds to survive, but to flourish.
Remember the first live-action Transformers movie? The one with Steven Spielberg watching over Michael Bay’s shoulder so there was as much character as action?
Bumblebee is even better than that.
Occasionally you come across a movie that just makes you feel wonderful from start to finish.
Mary Poppins Returns is one of those films.
The last major animated feature released in 2018 just might be its best.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is spectacular!
In a world ripped apart (literally) by quantum energy weapons called Medusas, Cities and towns could only survive by becoming mobile.
Mortal Engines opens with a chase sequence like nothing you’ve ever seen before – the massive London bearing down on a small mining town. It’s very exciting – but then we start meeting characters…
Now that Walt Disney Animation Studios equals Pixar for quality in both story and animation quality, we can be happy to see two movies from the studios in the same year.
Incredibles 2 was a lot of fun and now, Ralph Breaks the Internet comes along and is even better.
