The Nice Guys
The Nice Guys (2016)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's very funny but a hard R, FYI. Our theatre was not packed but the chuckling and full out laughing was loud. There are a few bits where we laughed hard in a "that's so wrong" kind of way. If you don't like movies where getting shot might get laughs, you'd want to avoid this. If you go with the flow on this, definitely see this.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

2 out of 3 of us did not like this movie. I'm the 1 in 3. I didn't love it but I was entertained and interested the whole way through. I have the same complaints as others; it was too dark, Lex Luthor was "interesting" casting, Superman is beautiful but the character has no range, Batman was great but there were some inconsistencies in the story and the blatant advertising for future characters was annoying at best. I liked the same things as others; Lex Luthor was "interesting" casting; Wonder Woman ruled but was not in enough of the film and it's visually spectacular. All in, I'd see this in the theatre if I had to do it over or I'd rent it when it comes out on pay tv. I wouldn't want to wait for cable. Shout to Negan and Maggie!!!

Sisters (2015)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

There are some very funny bits but overall the movie is, meh. If, like me, you adore Poehler and Fey, you'll get to see some great individual comedy bits and their wild chemistry. There is an extra half star for casting James Brolin and Dianne Wiest. For me, this is a wait for cable movie.

Room (2015)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Watch this with a tissue handy then go back and watch the first half again. Room feels so much different the second time through because you're viewing it not from a position of hope but of hopelessness. He doesn't leave room while he's still plastic, plasticity only lasts through childhood. Jacob Tremblay and Brie Larson are magnificent. I cannot believe Joan Allen did not get more praise for her role in this film. All of these performances will stay with me for a long time. There isn't a better piece of all-around filmmaking this year.

Creed (2015)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Michael B Jordan is luminescent. Sylvester Stallone offers something fresh and unexpected. Since I've seen almost all the Oscar nominated films, I'll say that I would take Jordan's performance over any of them this year. These filmmakers finally bring us something worthy of Rocky. I didn't care much about the boxing but that didn't matter to my enjoyment of the film.
