Like most comedies, Keanu has a hard time getting to the finish line in the third act, but the work from Key and Peele accomplishes what it is supposed to do. It makes you laugh.
The top-notch acting in Papa Hemingway in Cuba makes up for the slow burn and turns a simple story into something much bigger than it should be just like Earnest Hemingway did with his stories.
If you’re looking for cinema gore and white knuckle suspense, Green Room will be exactly what you want in a movie. Just don’t expect anything more.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War is definitely better than Snow White and the Huntsman, but that’s not saying much.
Cheadle may stumble as a director, but luckily he has himself to thank for making Miles Ahead watchable due to his strong work as the erratic Miles Davis.
Elvis & Nixon is only a few days in the life of these two popular figures, but the film is an oddball tale full of charm.
The villains may make their presence known in The Jungle Book, but the star of the film is Bill Murray who carries the film on his big bear back.
Barbershop: The Next Cut is not perfect, but it has some funny and meaningful moments leading up to its predictable ending.
Hardcore Henry is pure escapism with the audience becoming the title character as you see what Henry sees as he pummels his enemies trying to find out the truth about what happened to him.
The cast of relative unknowns shine in Everybody Wants Some!! and shows the random fun that can happen in college. For a film about nothing, there’s definitely something special about it.
