Will update as I see movies this year.

  1. The Lighthouse
    1. Really Amazing. Hard to describe without spoilers, but its the type of movie that sticks with you. A day after seeing it it is still on my mind. I have a feeling it will be my fav by years end. 10/10
  2. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    1. Not my favorite Tarintino film, but still very good. I think it drags a bit in the middle, but the characters and performances are great, and it is a unique experience with an unconventional narrative. 9/10
  3. Avengers: Endgame
    1. The perfect ending to this saga of the MCU. 9/10
  4. Us
    1. Really enjoyed it, but wasn’t really scared past the first act, and there are some annoying plot holes. Still, a solid second movie from Peele, who has a bright future. 8/10
  5. Dolemite is My Name
    1. Great performance from Eddie Murphy, solid biopic. It does nothing to change the biopic genre and sticks to the formula, but an interesting watch about a fascinating character none the less. 7/10
  6. Rocketman
    1. A very interesting take on the story of Elton John. Brilliantly acted, and thankfully, it does not try to make the story of Elton tame. Highly recommend. 7/10
  7. Joker
    1. I like this less than most. It is a good movie, with some fantastic performances, and good cinematography, but something about it feels shallow. I don’t think it being a Joker movie heightens it. It could be about any character. Though if it wasn’t a Joker movie it wouldn’t make a billion dollars, so there is that. Part of me can’t get over that I have seen the better version of this movie and it is called The King Of Comedy.  7/10
  8. It Chapter Two
    1. This movie is never scary, but it is entertaining. I enjoyed watching these character journeys, the performances was good, the story was fine, but it was too goofy and funny to scare me. I jumped a couple times, but I laughed more than I was in fear, and I do not think that was what they wanted when they made it. 7/10.
  9. Lego Movie 2: The Second One
    1. Lots of fun. Not as good as the first one, but still enjoyable and smart. 7/10
  10. Toy Story 4
    1. Its a fine movie, but feels unnecessary. Sometimes a franchise should just end, but this feels artificial. Toy Story 3 was a perfect ending to the series, and I dont think the made this because they had a good idea, but more so because they knew it would make money. 6.5/10
  11. Captain Marvel
    1. Fun, yet underwhelming. I am glad I watched it, but I hope there is a bit more to any future sequel or appearances of this character. Still, a solid addition to the MCU. 6.5/10
  12. Shazam!
    1. Lots of fine, but the emotional moments fell flat for me. 6/10
  13. The Highwaymen
    1. Great acting, but there is not much else to the movie. No real plot, or conflict, just two guys looking for Bonnie and Clyde until they find them. Never felt any suspense or stakes. 5.5/10
  14. Aladdin
    1. It was fine. I enjoyed parts of it. But the overwhelming problem was that it just felt so unnecessary. There is nothing this movie does, that the original cant still offer. 5/10
  15. Velvet Buzzsaw
    1. Such a disappointment. Was hoping for a weird, original, intelligent horror movie. What we got was a cliche slasher flick with no interesting kills, bad acting, and a theme that goes nowhere. 4/10
  16. Detective Pikachu
    1. Held up as “the first good Video Game movie,” but was a big disappointment to me. The characters were almost all uninteresting, the acting was bad, and the story was uninspired. It didnt really even tickle my pokemon nostalgia. I have seen better video game movies. 4/10
  17. Glass
    1. Shockingly bad. Poorly written, no interesting shots, badly acted, and poorly paced. What a waste of a decent franchise. 2/10
  18. Escape Room
    1. Boring and generic. Not even worth writing a full review for. It is Saw if Saw was boring. 2/10
