  • A Summer Romance

    A Summer Romance

    This film checks about every Hallmark trope there is but I thought it did it quite well. Erin has such a cute giggle. She doesnt get to laugh like that much on wcth. Ryan is handsome and charming as always. Rest of cast solid. Enjoyable

  • 47 Meters Down: Uncaged

    47 Meters Down: Uncaged

    ★★

    As someone who really enjoyed the first one this was disappointing. It's way more schlocky with ridiculous zombie sharks and deaths right out of Sharknado so it comes down to taste. It wasnt my favorite. Also it missed the tension of being 47 meters down

  • Pride & Prejudice: Atlanta

    Pride & Prejudice: Atlanta

    Well written. Well acted. Well done. I've seen tons of terrible PandP adaptations but this is one of the good ones

  • Otherhood

    Otherhood

    ★★

    The only way movies like this work with little plot is if you like following the characters around and I didn't like these characters. They were shrill obnoxious and selfish. I feel like these kind of mothers are always shown in movies but I don't know any in real life. Nobody would put up with anyone so irritating. Also the costume designer must hate Patricia Arquette

  • Where'd You Go, Bernadette

    Where'd You Go, Bernadette

    ★★½

    The characters are as awful and insufferable as in the novel but Cate Blanchett is great and there are passages of Linklater's wonderful dialogue that almost save it. I'd say a rental if it looks interesting

  • A Taste of Summer

    A Taste of Summer

    I love the diverse cast but it was badly done. The script doesnt have the main conflict start until way too late, the couple is apart too much so no chemistry can build, the acting is wooden and the line delivery robotic. It was also quite boring. Just bad😬

  • Angel Has Fallen

    Angel Has Fallen

    ★★★

    Like a more violent passable episode of 24. I like passable episodes of 24

  • Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

    ★★★

    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark- it's not going to change your life but if you want an entry level horror movie it's fun. Some gross scares and good teen performances. I was entertained even though I'm a scary movie wimp

  • Napoleon Dynamite

    Napoleon Dynamite

    ★★★★★

    Works because Napoleon is such a great character who's life actually sucks but he still dances at the end for his friend. I love it rachelsreviews.net/2015/01/08/character-profile-3-napoleon-dynamite/

  • Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: A Game of Cat and Mouse

    Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: A Game of Cat and Mouse

    I prefer these mystery shows to be on the nutty side with secret societies and evil twins. This felt like one scene of exposition after another. I was bored despite the best of efforts from the actors. Her wig was atrocious

  • The Kitchen

    The Kitchen

    ★½

    This film has a lot of good pieces not put together very well. The tone swings all over the place from brutal violence to weird attempts at humor that didnt flow well. The actresses try hard but still felt miscast and it has to be the least Irish Irish mafia ever

  • The Angry Birds Movie 2

    The Angry Birds Movie 2

    ★★★

    The plot for this animated film isnt the best and I lost interest in it pretty early on but I did laugh quite a bit especially all the music jokes were hilarious. It's average but I think I liked it better than the first one
