  • Genie



    If you take away Melissa McCarthy and the Universal logo at the start, then you'd likely see this premiering on the Hallmark or Lifetime channel. Melissa McCarthy does her best to elevate Genie but she's unfortunately stuck in a lightweight, overly predictable, and instantly forgettable Christmas fantasy comedy that's the very definition of a made for streaming movie. The fish out of water stuff provides a few good chuckles and it's not without its charming moments, but everything else about…

  • Wish



    Wish isn't the abomination some are making it out to be but it's painfully average at best and lacks the classic Disney magic that it's so clearly trying to evoke.

    It's predictable, cliched, and it does run to long containing some unnecessary subplots but "The Intern" is still a really sweet and enjoyable film to watch. Robert De Niro is terrific and Anne Hathaway is really good as well and the two of them do share some really good chemistry. The tone also balances drama, comedy and a little romance pretty nicely as well. It's nothing to special, but it's still a irresistibly charming crowd pleaser.

    I expected this to be good but I didn't expect it to be great. Sure not every joke works and the film starts off a little rocky, "Instant Family" is still one of the most funny, honest, touching, powerful, and above all else heartwarming films of the year. Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne are perfectly cast while the kids are great as well and you really buy their chemistry. Don't have too much to say about this one but it really is one of the most enjoyable movies of the year and I just appreciated how honest this movie was. Go see this.
