Bio: I am a father of two and married to my best friend. Beyond my family my passion is cinema and writing. Two things I hope to combine into a career one day. For right now raising my kids, being home with my family and staying immersed in the world of pop culture takes a lot of time but I love it.

|97 94%||Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - Dec 02, 2017
"Immediately engaging thanks to the terrific cast lead by McDormand and Harrelson. Three Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri is one of the most complete film packages of 2017. Shocking, darkly comedic and filled with twists this film has to be a contender for best picture. McDormand commands the screen in a way that makes moments of the film hard to accept and Harrelson offsets her to help solidify a tour de force performance. As it progresses it becomes unpredictable and tells a brilliant story."
|80 53%||Irrational Man (2015) - Nov 21, 2016
"Had this film reached the actual plot of the movie sooner it could have been a better film. The first part of the film was bogged down with pretentious narration and non existent flow. Joaquin Phoenix did show some range during the films second half and Emma Stone is always a delight to watch. This is not the best film from Woody Allen and in the end it is entertaining but it misses out on being on of the greats. "
|95 91%||It (2017) - Sep 10, 2017
"Finally I believe I have seen a modern horror masterpiece. I felt the shock and the terror and every moment of this film brutally took you through one of craziest phsychological rides you can experience. Bill Skarsgard you are a legend sir. Thank you for the chilling and absolutely terrifying interpertation of Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The young cast also have bright futures. Bring on Chapter 2. What an awesome viewing experience this truly was. I am ready. Thrill me again Skarsgard. "
|99 98%||Creed (2015) - Dec 02, 2015
"Creed is one hell of a film from start to finish. Immediately we are given a reason to connect with Adonis Johnson . Full of heart, courage and determination, Creed exemplifies how hard work can pay off. Jordan is a phenomenal young actor and this is the best work from Stallone in years. Jordan shows great chemistry with Stallone, calling Rocky Unc most of the film. It was the tender moments he shared with Rocky and leading lady Tessa Thompson that really showed his range and vulnerability."
|90 82%||Rise (2018) - Apr 18, 2018
"Rise is lead by the incredible musical and acting talent of its cast. Radnor is pure gold in the lead role and Auli`l Cravalho does a fantastic job of leading the younger cast. At times maybe the message of pushing ones comfort zone is a bit too preachy but it ultimately has a strong message worth conveying to an intelligent audience. Definitely has potential even moving beyond season 1 and my hope is to see where this story leads over a good 4 to 5 year run. "
|95 91%||The Spectacular Now (2013) - Jan 04, 2014
"In the early going Sutter Keely feels like the kid you want to be. He is the most loved kid in every room he walks into, the light of the party. He may have all these friends, but he never takes anything seriously. Yet, like Sutter himself says repeatedly through-out the film there are two sides to every story. Aimee is his story, his one chance to make things different. Teller and Woodley are sensational, grounding the film in true chemistry in both an endearing and heartbreaking fashion."
|88 74%||Sully (2016) - Jan 03, 2017
"Tom Hanks is once again delightful to watch, a man with enourmous talent continues to be brilliant and Sully is immediately that much better for it. Add in Clint Eastwood as the director and this is a tailor made film with a grounded central premise that will allow you to be both entertained and learn a few things too. It's an easy film to like as Sully is a lead worth rallying behind and an actor like Tom Hanks just accentuates that with ease. "
|96 93%||The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) - Mar 29, 2014
"Full of vibrant Wes Anderson style, The Grand Budapest Hotel comes alive thanks to the grand cast full of diverse characters and intriguing set pieces. Fiennes delivers one of his most rounded performances in years and it truly is captivating. Wildly humorous at times and full of dark imaginative wit, you will be sitting there at times completley entranced by the images displayed on the screen. Easily one of the best films in years, it is full of heart, soul and emotion. "
|84 62%||All the Money in the World (2017) - Mar 29, 2018
"Without Christopher Plummer coming in and excelling the way he did this film may have been half as good. We have no idea what the original vision for this role would have looked like, but Plummer alongside Wahlberg and Williams does his best to create tension. The film jumped all over the map and that hurt the message of the film. Still a quality film that does a good job shaping the narrative around the talents of the cast who create a stunning portrait of a true story."
|95 91%||The Wire (2002) - Feb 17, 2018
"One of the most compelling and realistic cop dramas of all time because the scope was much wider than most shows of the same nature. This is a story of both sides, the ones avoiding the law and the low key slow burn approach to build a solid case. The acting is terrific over the course of the 5 season run as each character weaves a poignant and gritty narrative of life of law and crime on the streets of Baltimore. "
