movie reviews

Movie Review: Joaquin Phoenix in ‘Joker’

Joker isn’t one of those films where you leave the theater energized. You’re beaten down and exhausted. But for a film to have that effect on you these days is quite a feat.

Movie Review: ‘Downton Abbey’

For anyone who watched every episode of every season of Downton Abbey, the new film will be like a warm, comfortable blanket that you pulled out of storage.

Movie Review: ‘The Goldfinch’

The cast is great. Jeffrey Wright as Hobie has a short monologue about restoring furniture and it’s honestly the best thing in the film.

Movie Review: ‘Before You Know It’

With a note perfect cast, quick-witted script and direction to match, Before You Know It, Hannah Pearl Utt’s marks a terrific directorial debut.

Movie Review: ‘The Quiet One’

The documentary’s title refers to Wyman’s role in the Rolling Stones, where he served as a quiet on-stage presence as compared to the antics of Richards and Jagger.

Movie Review: ‘Shazam!’

As Shazam, Zachary Levi is goofiness and super-hero rolled into one. Think of him as Tom Hanks’ Big character if he were given an extraordinary powers.

Movie Review: Tim Burton’s ‘Dumbo’

When Dumbo is good, it’s very good, sweet, and charming. In fact, the part of the film that will give you all the feels is when we first see Dumbo fly.

Movie Review: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’

From the casting, screenplay and the “Holy Crap!” final scene of ‘Us’, Jordan Peele has quickly turned into a director who’s a must-watch.

Movie Review: M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Glass’

The film is more graphic novel than pure comic book. Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan wants to deal with what it’s like to be a human with super abilities and its effects on the world at large.

Movie Review: ‘Aquaman’

Aquaman boasts a terrific cast, great director and a couple of great action scenes. What it does not have, like most DC movies, is a good script.

Movie Review: ‘Mary Poppins Returns’

Mary Poppins Returns, the sequel to the 1964 Disney classic, is more than a worthy follow up. It’s joyful, uplifting and features an Oscar-worthy performance from Emily Blunt.
