    Sonic the Hedgehog

    ★★

    I expected nothing and yet I'm still let down.

    Honestly, as much as I knew this was gonna be bad, I had slight hope; maybe Sonic and Eggman themselves could be entertaining enough to where I could ignore any amateurish writing or humor, but to the surprise of no one, it's pretty bad. The best part about this movie by far is Jim Carrey as Eggman, he gives his all for this performance in a great combination of the Mask…

  • It Chapter Two

    It Chapter Two

    ★★★½

    There is a really great 2 hour movie in this, but it’s nearly 3 hours long, and it *really* didn’t need to be. It: Chapter 2 isn’t bad by any means, but I did leave a bit disappointed. Let’s talk about what I liked first; the actors were all fantastic, Bill Hader giving my favorite performance out of the bunch. James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and the rest of the cast all gave great performances, and Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise is…

  • The Lion King

    The Lion King

    ★★½

    Much like Aladdin, I didn’t grow up on the original Lion King aside from the spinoff 1 1/2, so maybe my opinion on this doesn’t matter as much.  Even more much like Aladdin, I have mixed feelings on The Lion King, and unfortunately, they’re more negative than positive.  But I like being positive about movies like this, so I’ll talk about what I liked first.  No matter what you think about this movie, it’s hard to deny that the visuals…

    Toy Story 3

    ★★★★★

    For me, this will always be the best Pixar movie. Because not only does it stand on its own as one of the best prison break movies of all time, not only does it perfectly end the trilogy, but it solidifies it and the last two as one of the best movie trilogies of all time.

    I love how the movie tackles the central dilemma of the second movie, and how the characters deal with the fact that they basically…

    Toy Story 2

    ★★★★★

    Alright, so I don’t know how unpopular this is, but I actually think this is better than the first.  Don’t get me wrong, the first movie is excellent and a timeless classic, but for me personally, I think this movie takes what made TS1 great and improved upon its shortcomings.  The animation is the perfect middle ground between the dated but charming animation of the first movie and the clean, modern look of TS3.  It’s consistently colorful and interesting.  The…

    ★★★★★

    C’mon.  It’s Toy Story.  How can you hate it?  Don’t answer that.

    It’s hard for me to talk about this, because really, what can I say about it that hasn’t already been said? Tom Hanks and Tim Allen kill it in their respective roles and absolutely own their characters, to the point where any other interpretation either doesn’t feel the same or downright fails. Tom Hanks’ dad-like charm and Tim Allen’s witty confidence bleeds into the characters, something only a…

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★

    I wasn’t expecting much; I just wanted a fun, epic monster movie. What I got was a fun and epic monster movie with no substance. While Millie Bobby Brown was okay, I just didn’t really care about her, nor did I care about any character. They just feel like plot devices used to get Godzilla and the monsters from point A to point B. While the monsters themselves look great, and there are some spectacular action scenes, the story itself…

  • Aladdin

    Aladdin

    ★★★

    I didn’t grow up on the original Aladdin, so take this review with a grain of salt. Having seen both, I can easily say this is a passable alternative. I actually liked Will Smith quite a bit, and while he’s not as good as Robin Williams’ interpretation, he makes Genie his own, and offers a lot of the most entertaining moments throughout. Naomi Scott does really well in her respective role, actually managing to give Jasmine a bit more development…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Quick Update

    I’m gonna be honest with y’all, I have had 0 motivation to write reviews.  I don’t know what it is, but anytime I watch a movie then go home to write something, my mind just goes blank.  If you’re noticing a lack of reviews for the new movies I see, it’s just that I can’t.  I had a whole review for John Wick 3 made, but I just couldn’t put it into words.

    This doesn’t mean I won’t…
