Kalifornia is one hell of a road trip of a movie that excels thanks two amazing performances from Brad Pitt and Juliette Lewis, and if this film had found any traction, Pitt at the very least should’ve gotten an Oscar nomination.

Starsky & Hutch is one of the better, for what it’s worth, TV-to-film adaptations as Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson were great together and the humor mostly landed and seeing this 15 years later was a lot of fun.

There’s no doubt Queen is a true hall of fame band and Freddie Mercury a transformative musician, but this bio-pic, while well produced and finely acted, feels a bit sterilized relaying Mercury’s life but keeping it within the PG-13 realm.

Creed II is another brilliant entry into the Rocky franchise and features a great performance from Michael B. Jordan with some solid work by Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson.

Robin Hood is hardly a terrible movie, it did have some passion behind-the-scenes and I did genuinely like Jamie Foxx as John, but most everything else makes you wonder: what’s the point of a big budget movie like this?

A Star is Born is a well made music-drama and although I can’t compare it to the other versions, I thought this one had some great music to go along with solid performances from Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in her feature film debut.

Waterworld over the course of 20 years has washed away (so to speak) some of the negativity related to its lackluster box office set against its tremendous budget. Watching all these years later, and the long awaited Ulysses Cut no less, I found it to be a really fun apocalyptic action-thriller.

The Vengeance of She, a sequel to the 1965 She, is actually a fun little romp that, albeit not terribly well written, is quite entertaining for its fantastical elements and Olinka Berova was one of the bright spots, though not the best actress.

Mary Queen of Scots is certainly a rich movie in terms of the technical aspects including costumes, hair/makeup and set designs, and while both Ronan and Robbie’s performances were great, the story in of itself lacked much of an emotional punch.

Overlord is one hell of a thrill ride that combined World War II drama (with respect if not historic flexibility) and zombie horror and the combination was a lot of fun thanks to creative direction and a charismatic ensemble cast.

The Cloverfield Paradox had an interesting idea at its core, likely whatever remained of the original script God Particle, but the execution, and forcing it to be part of the Cloverfield franchise, just was not well thought out.

Backtrace wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but it is your run-of-the-mill poorly made direct-to-video flick that will eventually be <$10 level in no time, though you might be missing out on the sweet title-embossed slip cover…

, The Front Runner from a technical and acting standpoint is a perfectly fine movie. But the issue comes from the fact it’s not all that important, or at least as important as the filmmakers want it to be, with the ideas presented.
