Bad Times at the El Royale: Good Times in Theatres (78%)

Bad Times at the El Royale contained elements of action, mystery, and comedy, all of which was tied together elegantly with great cinematography but spiraled slightly out of control at the end of the film. The beginning of this film feels similar to mysteries such as Clue or And Then There Were None—the movie begins

First Man: Interesting but not Incredible (70%)

I walked into First Man with mixed expectations—while I love history related movies, Ryan Gosling is not my favourite actor. Regardless, his acting was up to par for this film and the movie itself was a fairly entertaining watch. The movie follows the life of Neil Armstrong from 1961-1969, showing how he came to be

A Star Is Born: Devastatingly Good (90%)

A Star Is Born was one of few movies that made me choke up in theatres. Admittedly, I have never watched the original version of this movie so I can’t make much of a comparison, but I can confirm that this adaptation was beautifully executed. Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) is a professional musician who stumbles

White Boy Rick: Disappointing Retelling of a Sad True Story (35%)

I was extremely excited to watch White Boy Rick after seeing Matthew McConaughey in the previews, but the movie itself was a very slow and anticlimactic telling of a truly sad story. The movie focuses on how Richard Wershe Jr. (Richie Merritt) became the youngest FBI informant. Richard, or “white boy Rick,” was approached by

As the father (John Cho) looks for answers, he discovers his daughter’s life is the real mystery. I attended a screening of this film anticipating disappointment because the story

A Simple Favor: FAVE! See in theatres! (85%)

A Simple Favor is a captivating mix of mystery, thriller, and comedy that deserves all the praise it is receiving! This movie had me snickering nonstop from start to finish, even though I was still engaged with the thriller plot line. The movie begins with an unlikely friendship forming between Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), a mommy

Peppermint: Borderline Flop (55%)

Peppermint is an okay movie to see in theatres if you’re looking for an average action movie, but I’d recommend saving your money for something better because the movie was just… average. The plot will neither amaze nor surprise you. The basic premise is as follows: Riley North (Jennifer Garner) witnesses the unexpected murder of
