    Child's Play

    ★★★★

    For those that know me, they know that Child’s Play holds one of the most special places in my heart. In many ways my terror towards the doll Chucky got me into horror, and facing my fears of dolls in general. The entire franchise I have watched many times over, and I still do fairly often when I am wanting some nice entertaining killer doll movies. I was still excited though about the idea of this movie. I will not…

    Toy Story 4

    ★★★★★

    What a fantastic movie. I used to think I just liked the franchise, but between this and my recent rewatch of the original movie I think I might love it. Its a really cool story, and I like the ways that the movies comment on very human things from the perspective of toys. It gives a way of talking about potentially upsetting things to being still safe for kids, but adults can get a lot out of the movies. In…

    Aquaman

    ★★★½

    “Everyone has a right to be wrong every once and a while.” I use that quip as a joke to people I like but disagree with. In this case, I am using it against myself. Aquaman is a movie with a bunch of problems, but one thing that you can’t say about it is that it doesn’t have an incredible and interesting world that it created here. Where Avatar created an interesting world without the story to back it up,…

  • Enemies Closer

    Enemies Closer

    ★½

    Enemies Closer is one of JCVD’s worst films, and honestly pretty embarrassing for the most part. His role in this was intentionally the way it is, but intentions don’t make it a good choice. For the most part he looks so foolish in the movie that I honestly laughed every time he was on screen. Not with him, but at him. That honestly is the only reason the fun-o-meter is a 4 and the movie isn’t getting completely blasted.

    Midsommar

    ★★★★

    I will certainly have to second to Steven Francis in saying that the movie is certainly hard to rate. There are a lot of different reasons for that which I will get into, but my overall thoughts about the movie is that I liked it. I didn't love it in all honesty, but I had a good time and will likely be picking this one up when it comes out.

    Firstly the movie's technical elements are very strong. The cinematography…

  • Hot Fuzz

    Hot Fuzz

    ★★★★½

    Hot Fuzz has always been a movie that I have enjoyed a lot. Its got a good mixture of action and comedy, and it works incredibly well. The writing is super sharp, the direction is well done, the acting is great, and the characters are well built with interesting arcs. It's the type of movie that takes a very confident and talented director, because honestly the movie goes off the rails pretty hard. It's the movies strongest suit though, and…
