Zombieland stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin. The film follows four survivors of a zombie apocalypse who randomly meet and team up in order to remain alive through Zombieland. Now what I liked about the movie, first off, was its cast. This movie assembles an amazing cast filled with many different personalities which surprisingly work great with this movie. They have great chemistry with each other that leads to some hilarious scenes. Next, the characters are great an extremely entertaining to watch. Woody Harrelson's character, Tallahassee was by far my favorite. He was an incredibly charismatic, badass cowboy who just has an absolute hatred for zombies. He was probably the best part of this movie. Third, the movie feels like a really cheesy horror action film from the 80's filled with memorable one liners, great characters and awesome fight scenes. It reminds me a lot of one of my favorite tv shows Ash vs. Evil Dead which was a big plus on the creators behalf. The story, is also very entertaining. However what I didn't like about, first off was its cliché story. The film doesn't feel original because of how the audience has probably seen this type of story many times before. Also, it's never quite clear how the apocalypse started, it's just quickly glossed over in the introduction. Plus, many other things are also glossed over in the film especially very emotional moments which didn't really set right with me. Regardless though, this movie was undoubtedly fun and I highly suggest it to anyone willing to have fun. So, because of the reasons above I'm going to give Zombieland a 7/10. Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed.

Incredibles 2 stars Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Bob Odenkirk, and Samuel L. Jackson. The film follow Bob Parr (Nelson), A.K.A Mr. Incredible who is tasked with taking care of his super powered children after his wife Helen (Hunter), A.K.A Elastigirl is hired by a business to save the world and to help legalize heroes. Now, I must say, I loved this movie. First off, the animation is outstanding. For example, the creators did such a great job utilizing these heroes powers which is expressed greatly on screen through only this type of stylized animation. Next the characters were great. A standout would have to be Baby Jack-Jack who stole the show in every scene he was in. Third, I liked the realism the film has. From family issues to social commentary comments, this movie has something all family members can relate to. Finally, the film has great character relationships and moments. For example, all the scenes that included Bob Parr taking care of his children was undoubtedly the best parts of this movie and extremely funny and heartfelt. My only problem with the film was it's villain who was very cliché, predictable, and not as impactful as the originals villain, Syndrome. Despite that, though, the film is still great. It may have a little problem which made for huge dents in the film, but I believe Incredibles 2 is definitely worth a 9/10. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, I hope you guys have a great day. Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed.

Juno stars Ellen Page, Michael Cera, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman, Allison Janney, and J.K. Simmons. The film follows Juno (Page), a teen who after getting accidentally pregnant, deals with the struggles of a grown woman in that stage of ones life despite her being to young for the task. Things get even more complicated when she decides to have a family, in desperate need of a baby, to adopt it. Now, first off, what I liked about the film was Ellen Page. Page does a phenomenal performance as a young teen dealing with issues she is not ready for. Her performance felt real and authentic bringing a great reality to the situation she is in. The rest of the cast is great as well, however, it is Page's performance that really stands out to me. Next, I really like the story. The story is creative because of its feeling of how the audience has never seen this type of situation dealt with in this sort of manner. Also, the execution of the story is very entertaining because of how it made me eager to see what would happen next to this character of Juno. Finally, the comedy in this movie is very funny and when mixed with its great amount of drama, blends very well. What I didn't like about the film, however, was of there were many moments where something would happen and it has no meaning. I also think it was weird how some people in the movie took Juno's pregnancy. What I'm getting at is how some people were acting completely calm of the situation which made no sense to me. Honestly, though, this movie has great acting, a brilliant story, great execution and great combination of tones. However, because of its minor problems I'm going to give Juno a strong 8/10. Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed.

The Disaster Artist stars James Franco, Dave Franco, and Seth Rogen. The film follows Greg Sestero (Dave Franco), an actor in training who befriends the weird and mysterious Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) in an acting class. The two then travel to Hollywood where they plan to make their dreams come true resulting in the making of the worst movie ever made. Now, first off, what I like about this movie was it's brilliant performances. James Franco does a mesmerizing job as Tommy Wiseau perfectly capturing the weird nature of the person in real life. Dave Franco also does a great job portraying Greg Sestero having such great chemistry with his brother, James. The plot of the movie really relies heavily on these two performances and it definitely delivers. Next, the movie is very funny with tons of humor to please an entire audience. Finally, the film has an amazing story that is funny, heartfelt, oddly inspiring, and so much more. I love how the movie doesn't mock the legacy of Tommy Wiseau and instead tries to make him a sympathetic character. The movie is also oddly inspiring to viewers everywhere wanting to become actors, directors, or anything involving. It teaches that the job at hand is not as easy as it sounds as well as to always follow your dreams. The only problem I really have with this film is how there's no incite into who Tommy Wiseau was. It was a run on joke about how mysterious Wiseau was, but was never actually delved into making my viewing experience a little confusing. Regardless, though, this movie is great. The reasons above exactly prove my point. I highly suggest this film to anyone thinking about getting a job in the movie business and to anyone in the mood to have a good time. For that and the reasons above I'm going to give The Disaster Artist a 9/10. Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed.

What We Do in the Shadows stars Taika Waititi, Jemaine Clement, Jonny Brugh, and Cori Gonzalez- Macuer. The film follows a documentary crew who decide to record the lives of three vampire roommates and the struggles they go through in the modern world especially when a recently bitten human enters their group. Now, first off, what I liked about the film was it's main characters. These vampires were incredibly entertaining and fun to watch. The same can be said for their actor counterparts because of their amazing chemistry and their major sense of humor. Next, the premise is interesting and executed perfectly to screen. A modern world where vampires are being interviewed in their day-to-day lives is interesting and is translated so humorously to the screen. Finally, the comedy is absolutely hilarious. Throughout the runtime, the movie kept me laughing the entire way. It's that funny! However, what I didn't like about the movie was it's lack of an actual plot. The film at times feels like many Saturday Night Live sketches drawn out into an entire movie. It makes the movie seem a little unfocused. Regardless, the movie has great characters, an interesting premise that translated perfectly to screen, and tons amount of humor. For that and the reasons above I'm going to give this film a 7/10. Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed.

3:10 to Yuma stars Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, Logan Lerman, and Ben Foster. The film is set in the old west and follows a former soldier turned down on his luck farmer (Bale), who volunteers to assist an escort to transport an outlaw (Crowe) onto a train leading to the Yuma prison in exchange for money to help his family's farm. Now, I must say, this movie is awesome! First off, the cast is great. Standouts include Russell Crowe who is badass as the outlaw, Ben Wade, and Christian Bale who does an outstanding performance on the down on his luck farmer, Dan Wilson. Next, the story is entertaining throughout. The film never feels like it's slowing down, it's just consistently brilliant throughout. It has tons of awesome actions scenes as well as emotional dramatic scenes which surprisingly balances and works for this movie. Finally, the action is absolutely fun. This movie feels like a love letter to old westerns and with that comes fun gun fights that are undoubtedly entertaining. Where the problems lye though, is the lack of originality and one useless character. First off, with this being a love letter to old westerns it's obviously going to have a plot we've probably seen many times before. Also, Bale's son in the movie, played by Logan Lerman, is useless and adds absolutely nothing to the plot. Regardless though, this movie is great and because of that and the reasons above, I'm going to give 3:10 to Yuma an 8/10. Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, and Carrie Fisher. The film picks up where The Force Awakens left off in that Rey (Ridley), is seeking guidance in becoming a Jedi master from the legendary Luke Skywalker (Hamill). However, Luke is unwilling to do so because of his fear of her turning to the dark side. Meanwhile, the resistance prepares themselves for a war with the First Order. Now what I first liked about this film was its main characters. Seeing these icons on screen was a great joy especially because of their epic character moments. This was delivered perfectly from their actor counterparts who did an amazing job in this movie. I also like the character interactions. Ever since The Force Awakens, I've been eager to see how Luke and Rey's relationship would be like and I'm glad to say it payed off greatly. Finally, the final action scene was awesome with great character moments and cool light saber fights. Now what I didn't like about the movie was it's useless side plot, weird plot choice, and how some characters were useless to the plot. First off, the side plot with Finn (Boyega) was dumb and useless to the plot. He and a random girl are set on a mission to find a hacker played by Benicio del Toro who was weird and kind of pointless. Speaking of pointless characters, there were countless missed opportunities with characters from the previous film. Some of my favorite characters were used in a small way or not at all. Finally, there was weird plot decision in putting Laura Dern's character as the general of the resistance. Her character wasn't mentioned in any previous film and now all of a sudden she's the governor of the resistance? Weird choice. Honestly this movie had me split me right down the middle. I thought it was good, but not great. There are great moments and some bad ones as well. Because of that and the reasons above, I'm going to give Star Wars: The Last Jedi a 6/10. Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed.

Labyrinth stars David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly. The film follows an imaginative, troubled teen named Sarah who is tasked to take care of her baby step brother while her parents go out. Unwilling to, Sarah wishes for Jareth the Goblin King to take the baby far away from her. However, when her wish comes true and she realizes what she has done, Sarah sets out to save him by accomplishing an unsolvable labyrinth leading to Jareth's castle where the baby is kept. Now, I must say, I really love this movie. First off, the visuals are breathtaking and very imaginative. Next, the story is creative, acquiring an amazing adventure as well as life lessons the main character learns along the way. Third, the characters are awesome and very enjoyable to see on screen especially the ones Sarah meets on her journey. Speaking of that, the puppetry is astonishing. Director Jim Henson did a great job constructing such beautiful set pieces and creepy yet adorable creatures. Fourth, the songs are very catchy and fun to listen to especially because of the brilliant visuals surrounding it while the scene is taking place. However, the best part about this movie by far is David Bowie as Jareth. Bowie does such an entertaining performance, stealing every scene he's in. Every time he first appears on screen I immediately get goosebumps of his presence. It's that iconic! Honestly, this movie is one of my favorite movie of all time. Because of that and the reasons above, I'm going to give Labyrinth a 10/10! Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed.

Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, and Paul Bettany. The film follows Han Solo, a charismatic, smart mouth pilot who is hired by criminals to accompany them in a heist to retrieve a rare fuel to give to a space gangster (Bettany) the criminals work for. Now what I liked about this movie were a few standout characters. This would include Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo. These two were honestly the best parts of the movie and were very entertaining to watch. The other characters were enjoyable to watch, but not as much as the two above. I also like how Solo met his partner in crime Chewbacca. I thought it was portrayed very cleverly. Finally, the visuals were awesome and were a marvel to behold. Now on to what I didn't like about the movie. First off, this movie is boring, with an overly complicated story that was not portrayed in an entertaining manner. Next, the main goal of the movie was unfulfilling, promising the origin of Han Solo, and never really digging deep into who he really is. Third, the character of L3-37 was annoying and was unbelievably unbearable to watch. I won't spoil why, but you'll know what I mean when you see this movie. Lastly, the movie relies heavily on fans previous knowledge of the Star Wars franchise thus far. Me not being a big Star Wars fan made this experience very confusing and head scratching to watch. There's a lot more I didn't like about this movie, but I'm afraid I may run out of space or head into spoiler territory. Honestly, though, I didn't like this movie, but I didn't absolutely hate it. However because the bad outweighs the good I'm going to give Solo: A Star Wars Story a 4/10. Thank you for reading I hope you enjoyed.

Romeo + Juliet stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. The film adapts William Shakespeare's classic play into a modern reinterpretation. It follows two star crossed lovers who fall in love despite their families hatred towards each other and their desperate attempt to be together no matter what cost. Now, honestly I hate this movie. Where should I even begin? First off, the movie is boring and has no entertainment what so ever. Second, the acting is horrendous with over-the-top performances and overly dramatic ones as well. Third, the cinematography is downright weird with odd zoom is shots as well as shaky cam during the action sequences. Speaking of that, the action sequences are terrible because of its weird cinematography and over-the-top acting. Fourth, the romance is shameful and it would for sure make any audience member not care wether Romeo and Juliet would ever be together. It's funny because that's the movie main goal! However, the worst part about this movie is it's dreadful dialogue. The dialogue in the movie is kept the same as the original play sometimes making certain lines feel awkward or out of place. It also makes the audience's viewing experience incredibly confusing and annoying. Because of the films modern take on the play you would think the dialogue would be modernized as well, but it's not. Honestly the movie is an awful representation of Shakespeare's legendary work. Because of that and the reasons above I'm going to give Romeo + Juliet a 1/10. Thank you guys for reading I hope you enjoyed.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape stars Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Juliette Lewis. The film follows Gilbert Grape, a troubled man trying to balance his personal life with the overbearing responsibilities he has with his family as well as the thought of being a good man. Now I must say I really love this movie. First off, the cast is amazing. Standouts include Johnny Depp who did a phenomenal performance as Gilbert Grape, bringing him down to earth and making him very relatable. Another would be Leonardo DiCaprio's outstanding performance as the mentally disabled brother of Gilbert, Arnie. He was brilliant when it came to bringing emotion to scenes, stealing the show in every one he was in. The film relies heavily on its characters and the relationships they have together which I think was a really brilliant idea. It truly brought emotion to the table in almost every scene. Next, the visuals were astonishing. Some shots in the film were illustrated so beautifully it looked as though it was a painting. Finally, the story was fantastic and very entertaining in the sense where one cannot take their eyes off the screen because of how emotionally invested they are. It was at times heartbreaking to watch. Honestly this film was brilliant sporting an amazing cast, great visuals, and a heartfelt story. Because of that I'm going to give What's Eating Gilbert Grape a 10/10. Thank you @aye.itschar for the review request. Guys please follow @aye.itschar .

Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Zazie Beetz, and Julian Dennison. The film follows Wade Wilson, A.K.A Deadpool (Reynolds) who assembles a team of lesser known mutants in order to defeat a time traveling mutant before he kills a kid who may affect the future. Now, much like the first movie, I love its predecessor. First off, this movie is extremely funny with laugh out loud comedy from beginning to end which kept me entertained and gave me a big grin throughout. Next, the cast was great. Reynolds was phenomenal as Deadpool and further proves that he was born to play this role. Josh Brolin was great as the time traveler Cable and was incredibly badass to watch. Also the character interactions were awesome due to its amazing actor and actress chemistry. Third, the story was outstanding, taking the character of Wade Wilson and expanding on it from the first movie making him more vulnerable and relatable. It mainly focused on Wade's personal journey which made for a more emotional experience. Fourth, the action was extremely fun and gruesome to watch. Finally, the end credits scenes were fantastic and were probably the best I've seen in a while. Honestly, this movie is a worthy sequel to it original and because of that I'm going to give Deadpool 2 a 10/10. There is so much more I love about this movie but I'm afraid I may run out of room. Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed.
