I am a movie crier. There’s no sugar coating it. I cried my way through Midnight Sun, Collateral Beauty, and even Instant Family with Mark Wahlberg jerked a few tears. So, of course, a movie about two teenagers in that fall in love but can’t be together because of a disease was bound to leave me...

I like Kevin Hart. I like Nicole Kidman. I even enjoy watching Bryan Cranston, but turns out I did not like all these things together. The downside to The Upside was just about everything. I went into the movies expecting a heartwarming film about the bond between a people that from two very different ba...

I like watching movies, and I usually have an opinion of what I thought of the movie after I watched it, but I have no basic knowledge of what differentiates a good f...

Jennifer Lopez’s new movie, Second Act, seems to be a quintessential romantic comedy, and… it is. Were you expecting a big reveal of something different? If you were, sorry to disappoint you, but this movie hardly has any innovative and unique elements that distinguish it from any other rom-com out the...

Watching the trailers and hearing critics’ reviews of the movie Instant Family had kept me on edge. I was super excited to see this supposed “hilarious” film, but what I saw wasn’t comedy at all; it was an emotional, almost drama-like depiction of what parents and kids go through in the foster ca...
