Doctor Sleep (2019)
6/10
high quality movie that fails to stick the landing
29 March 2020
This is a really good movie. i was loving it for the most part. there is one "floating" scene that i described as incredible. good acting, great directing. some really creepy scenes. and even tho it was 2.5 hours, i did not feel it. but i wasn't a fan of the way it concluded. and the throw-backs to the shining didn't do much for me since i disliked that movie.

i probably won't watch it again. (1 viewing, 3/28/2020)

Midway (2019)
4/10
great action scenes but not much more
28 March 2020
Some of the action sequences in shots in this movie were jaw-dropping. but the story was hard to latch on to. it followed about 20 characters so i wasn't invested in any of them. many of them could have been taken out of the story and it would have made no difference. one character i forgot was in the movie and when i remembered he was, i wondered why we even followed that story, and many others, in the first place. just because these were all real people in the event doesn't mean the movie needs to focus on all of them. craft a story, this was more of a history lesson with epic battle scenes (1 viewing, 3/27/2020)

half laughable, half decent with some cool parts
27 March 2020
I laughed a lot in this movie, especially at the dialogue. there were some cool action scenes, and some horrible ones. it had some decent heart. but overall it wasn't good. it wasn't horrible though (1 viewing, 3/26/2020)

awful
26 March 2020
I could tell within the first 5 minutes that this was going to be bad. i tried to give it a chance. that lasted until the 49 minute mark. and i was done. i'm generally not a fan of exorcism movies. and this is basically a crappy version of constantine, a movie a gave a 3/10. (1 viewing, 3/26/2020)

Good Boys (II) (2019)

amazing
26 March 2020
I love this movie. everything was on point. it was funny and clever throughout including some hysterical moments. it had good characters, a good story and was generally well made in all aspects. i was impressed at how naturally funny the main character was. (1 viewing, 3/25/2020)

fine but unnecessary
25 March 2020
It was okay. but it didn't feel like a full story with a beginning, middle and end. it felt like the prologue to something else. i get that it technically was, but it still should have had more of it's own story (about 2 viewings, 3/25/2020)

Black and Blue (I) (2019)
6/10
very suspenseful and solid overall
24 March 2020
This is a good, enjoyable single-view movie. not the highest quality in every area, like the dialogue, but it's at least serviceable. and the suspense and intensity of some of the scenes was palpable. did a good job of making me care. (1 viewing, 3/24/2020)

surprisingly awesome
23 March 2020
I laughed a lot. and it had some unexpected heart. the performances by the two much older actors didn't feel forced. i enjoyed it almost as much as the first one (1 viewing, 3/22/2020)

Don't Let Go (2019)
3/10
might have been decent in 1995
23 March 2020
This movie has been done before many times, much better than this. it brought nothing new to the table. the mystery had me intrigued for a while until i realized where it was going. a few really dumb moments, and doesn't have a cinematic feel (1 viewing, 3/22/2020)

fun movie that captures the feel of the original
23 March 2020
I enjoyed this movie. it's nothing special from a story-perspective, but i was entertained and laughed a solid amount. even the parts that weren't laugh out loud funny were still amusing. nothing felt forced like it does when this much time has passed before a sequel. my favorite part of this movie was zoey deutch. she was HILARIOUS. "on point" is an understatement. she played it perfectly to the point where i became invested in her character even though she's supposed to be annoying (1 viewing, 3/21/2020)

what is this?
22 March 2020
It's a stretch to call this a movie. what a waste of an amazing cast. i don't really know what happened here. maybe after playing tommy wiseau he subconsciously made his own disaster of a movie. i have no idea what was up with the "experimental" directing/editing. but it didn't work for me at all. and the worst part is, i didn't laugh at any of the comedy. at all.

well made has difficulty keeping your interest
22 March 2020
This is a decent movie. i just wasn't a fan of where it went for the most part. it started losing me in the middle. the third act picked up a lot, but overall i was not a fan. natalie portman's acting job was fantastic, as usual (1 viewing, 3/21/2020)

Queen & Slim (2019)
7/10
well-made and emotionally powerful
18 March 2020
Warning: Spoilers
Really good movie with great acting. this movie is filled with suspenseful moments, but it also takes its time. you become fully invested in the characters. and there are so many powerful moments. and the best part is, the movie had more going for it than just the social justice message, which was great. but so many movies like this revolve solely around the message, as opposed to having an intriguing story and great characters like this one did. the social justice message was one of the themes, but the movie was about the two characters and their experience. i enjoyed it very much (1 viewing, 3/17/2020)

SPOILERS

the end of this movie had me in tears. like a lot of em. with my emotional investment in the characters, it basically broke my heart. if i had a list of most tears in a movie, this would probably be top 5. i sympathize with anyone that has to go through anything like this. it's a travesty, and i hope we reach some semblance of equality and civility

mindlessly mediocre
15 March 2020
Warning: Spoilers
The action was mostly generic. some of it was entertaining, some of it was very shaky and unclear. this movie isn't offensive in any way except one... (1 viewing, 3/14/2020)

... they really need to stop making it so obvious who the bad guy was. this movie had two of them. and, i knew they were the bad guy 5 seconds after they came on the screen, no exaggeration.

bad and BORING
15 March 2020
I was enjoying it at first but it just DRAGS. i was really happy when i found out my boy macky and my girl jessica were in this, and i like bill hader a lot. they should have passed on this movie. neither mcavoy or chastain were given enough of a role to elevate the movie with their acting skills. and this movie had some of the lamest and cheesiest moments i've seen. also a subplot that is so tired and annoying (1 viewing, 3/14/2020)

The Ranch (2016– )
2/10
not funny and WAY too much drama
13 March 2020
I couldn't finish the second episode. most of the jokes were crickets for me. i predicted the next line numerous times. so many recycled jokes. and i personally dislike family drama mixed into my comedies (1 viewing, 3/12/2020)

really really bad
12 March 2020
I recently watched two charlie's angels movies from the early 2000's. figured i'd give them a shot after hating them the first time in theaters. i very much enjoyed them for what they were: ridiculous and outrageous fun. with all the reboots these days i checked and found that a new one was coming out so i added it to my watch list.

this new version is bad in so many ways. it has very little ridiculousness or outrageousness, while at the same time being completely unrealistic. the story was complete nonsense, yet somehow predictable. the dialogue was bad. there was no semblance of characters. most of the comedy was crickets. and there were numerous cringe-y scenes.

it also suffers from what a lot of these female-empowerment movies suffer from lately. the "girl power" theme is just too preachy and in your face. make a good movie with good characters. i obviously wanted to see it knowing most of the cast would be female. but the movie has to not be garbage. don't even get me started on ocean's eight. another example where i was excited for this all female version of the movie. and the movie just sucked. and it as very preachy.

in conclusion, movies that have an agenda are generally worse for it. stop making movies for the purpose of female empowerment, and start making good movies with good female characters (1 viewing, 3/11/2020)

Midsommar (2019)
7/10
ummmmm wow
23 February 2020
I may consider watching the director's cut on second viewing

one of the weirdest movies i've ever watched. i laughed out loud multiple times, not at something funny, but because i was asking myself, wth am i watching. many times this will result in a movie i loath. every once in a while, it's just the right kind of weird. maybe went overboard a few times, but the movie was good enough not to lose me.

this is an extremely well made movie. directing and cinematography are fantastic. the acting job by the lead was PHENOMENAL. there was one scene where you could hear her reaction without seeing her face, and i could feel what she was feeling deep in my bones. i was so impressed. and this movie is filled with scenes and images i have never seen or could possibly imagine. tons of memorable moments.

scary horror flick
22 February 2020
Warning: Spoilers
This movie is basic, and takes it's time to build up, but satisfies with some really good scares and very suspenseful scenes. the acting wasn't very good, and the boyfriend was pretty idiotic, but the movie did it's job. lots of memorable moments. i still remembered some from watching it 13 years ago (i'm pretty sure i'd only watched it once when it came out) (about 2 viewings, 2/21/2020)

(SPOILERS)

the first time i watched it, i hated it. i thought it was boring and was probably annoyed that they show you very little. i'm assuming that's why there are so many 1 star reviews. but as i've evolved into a horror movie fan, i realize that showing you is not always necessary. when she left the room at the very end and started screaming, wow that was creepy. the last two scares, in the last shot both made me jump. made me decide to go with a great 7 instead of a solid 6

decent action flick
22 February 2020
Some good action in a serviceable story with fairly likable characters. the love story was BAD and brought down the movie. although other than the action, it's not a very well-put-together movie (2 viewings, 2/21/2020)

speechless
20 February 2020
I don't know what this movie is. i haven't seen this many bad actors since The Room. the dialogue is atrocious. and i've never seen so much nudity in a movie. i think there's a 98% chance they hired a bunch of high end prostitutes and/or models to be in this movie. and i say this having watched less than half the movie. one of the worst movie ever made (1 viewing, 2/19/2020)
