First time feature film director Anthony Jerjen takes on the opioid crisis in INHERIT THE VIPER starring Josh Hartnett. While it is an interesting watch, the story ends before the crime thriller materializes.
Last year, director/writer Rian Johnson was the most hated man for his changes to the STAR WARS saga with THE LAST JEDI, but his latest KNIVES OUT may win back some of those haters. KNIVES OUT is outrageously good with a great cast, and once again the filmmaker takes risks to bring us a fresh take on the murdery mystery genre.

In 2015, Disney released a FROZEN short to play ahead of Pixar's COCO, and it was 21 minutes of torture. Suffice it to say, my expectations going into FROZEN 2 were very low. So to my surprise the follow-up to the massive 2013 hit was equally entertaining and ten times more hilarious and magical.
The Skywalker saga comes to a close with STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. By the conclusion, EPISODE IX leaves you feeling emotionally satisfied despite the flawed story. Watch the video review below.
Tom Hanks is Mr. Rogers in A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD but he's not the focus of the story. However, you'll leave the movie theater loving Mr. Rogers more after he helps another person overcome their anger. A Mr. Rogers bio pic never materialized but we were happily surprised. Watch my review below.
