Bio: I love movies. I currently write full-length reviews over at www.walkingtaco.com, a great site where I and several other writers review movies new and old. Check us out and leave us comments!
I use Criticker, an excellent quick-review site, to manage and keep track of all the films I see that I may not have a chance to review in full-length on my site.
|20 T1||Downsizing (2017) - Mar 10, 2018
"Here is a ripe concept that starts off promising, and after the first act, you literally can't believe where the movie goes. This is one of the biggest high-concept disasters of all time - full of good performances, however. Hong Chau adds the only interest in the film with her spunky character. "
|62 T4||Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) - Mar 06, 2018
"Passable Saturday afternoon entertainment that has little of the wonder and terror of the original, but has a fun concept and stars willing to dive in. The world of Jumanji is less exciting than what the original surmised, and the villain in this sequel feels nearly absent. But this is still a very watchable film. "
|75 T7||The Shape of Water (2017) - Mar 04, 2018
"It's probably Del Toro's best film, but for all it's wonder and accomplishment, the movie falters by delving into an uncomfortable intimate interspecies relationship. "
|75 T7||Black Panther (2018) - Feb 26, 2018|
|70 T5||Ricochet (1991) - Feb 26, 2018|
|72 T6||Wonder (2017) - Feb 26, 2018|
|72 T6||Roman J Israel, Esq. (2017) - Feb 17, 2018
"Washington is fantastic, which is nothing new considering he has never once not been fantastic. Unfortunately, the screenplay is about many things and altogether nothing - nothing but a showcase for Washington's magnetic and eccentric character. For that reason alone, this is a movie well worth watching. "
|50 T3||Justice League (2017) - Feb 15, 2018
"Watchable entertainment that deserves to be better. The casting is mostly right, and when the characters assemble, the movie energizes. But the story and characters are forced into an unnatural existence rather than feeling organic. The villain is generically awful and some of the special effects are very questionable for a $300m film. Even though BvS had its own share of storytelling shortcomings and laborious tone, it was far more cinematic to watch. The cleanup approach to this movie shows."
|48 T2||Murder on the Orient Express (2017) - Feb 15, 2018
"A star-filled period-set thriller that is probably less involving than the making of this movie. "
|70 T5||The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) - Feb 15, 2018
"It's not great, it's ultimately confusing, but it's twisty, weird and fun. "
