The Kitchen

The Kitchen is a simple movie that is able to tell its story in a compelling way that gets you invested somewhat in the characters. Tiffany Haddish does a damn good job as a cutthroat wife alongside Melissa McCarthy and Elizabeth Moss who bring different variety to these three characters coming together. Despite some pacing problems, this ends up being a fairly entertaining film overall.

Hobbs & Shaw

Hobbs and Shaw continues the crazy, over the top nature of the Fast and Furious franchise with lots of comedic efforts mainly from The Rock and Jason Statham having a fun comradery with one another on top of Idris Elba chewing the scenery as the villain. Crazy action and fun times.

Toy Story 4

On paper Toy Story 4 isn't necessary and yet the film proper does a great job of justifying its existence to where it serves as a solid epilogue to the trilogy of films before it. Toy Story 4 takes all the themes of the previous films and adds in the wrinkle of what it means to find purpose in life. Definitely a must watch film especially for the kids and its tearjerker for sure.

Shaft (2019)

Shaft is a very interesting franchise rooted in its blaxsploitation roots. 19 years ago, John Singleton gave us an updated version starring Sam Jackson in the role. It was an ok movie overall that had some over the top moments. So this followup sequel on first glance seems like a cash grab but it ends up being a pretty good film mainly because of writer Kenya Barris making the dialogue believable and not over the top stupidity. The entire cast does there job in the respective roles and it ends up turning a simple movie into a fun time.

MiB International

The MiB franchise for the most part has been a fun watch with the animated series doing the heavy lifting in terms of fleshing out the lore. In comes MiB International which has a very back to basic approach in that it uses the plot framework of the first film with a different set of circumstances and for the most part it works. Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth have such a good chemistry with each other that it helps the film out big time. Plus the film ultimately knows its a fun ride and thats basically what it ends up being.

X-Men Dark Phoenix

The X-Men franchise has been a very hit and miss movie affair. Dark Phoenix is in a position where on one hand, its a way better movie than X-Men Apocalypse but the flipside is that once again we're getting a movie about the Phoenix. While the film doesn't fall into the trappings that The Last Stand did, it still ends up falling short in bringing together a competent narrative and alot of that has to do with the short runtime and lacking the pieces that makes the story work so well in the comic book.

Ma

3BG had themselves a fun time at the movies watching Octavia Spencer act batshit crazy. The movie Ma is one of those fun movies to unplug and just enjoy the wackiness of it all.

Brightburn

Ever seen a movie that had a good premise but ultimately botches that premise by doing not a damn thing with it? Well thats Brightburn in a nutshell. A movie that has the makings of something great but does nothing with it.

Aladdin

With Disney going full tilt into doing live action retellings of the older animated films, Aladdin comes to us offering a surprisingly good retelling of the og cartoon with some good changes for some of the characters. Will Smith manages to do a solid job as the Genie as well. Well worth the watch.

Godzilla: King of The Monsters

2014 Godzilla did a lot right but left a lot to be desired. This go round, they got everything right. From the pacing, to the direction/cinematography, to monsters and Godzilla. It's a US Godzilla that feels like a Toho film. Go to the theaters watch this one!

John Wick 3 Review | A Solid, Kick-Ass Sequel

Very rare do you see a movie franchise constantly one up itself with every sequel and the John Wick films do just that. John Wick 3 immediately from jump hits you with action with a simple plot and doesn't let up till right at the end. Solid film all around and worth the watch.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Video Game movies that are legit good are extremely few and far between. Detective Pikachu ends up being a very good video game film that works because 1. The story is very simple and to the point and 2. The film embraces the Pokemon world to the fullest extent that it feels very real.

Definitely worth a watch and worth your time and attention.

Avengers Endgame

DJ Tsu and CJ talk briefly about Avengers Endgame. This film is an experience like no other. Solid movie that keeps your interest from beginning to end and doesn't let up at all and sticks the landing. This is what we've been waiting for since 2008 and Marvel/Disney delivered!!!

Also we have a video review done with CJ, Nagier from BGB podcast, and Sam from JVS.

SHAZAM!

So DC/WB has been on a bit of a roll in terms of distancing themselves from what came before. Shazam accomplishes the simple goal of just telling a story and letting the chips fall where it goes. The story is simple and effective, the cast is great, and the action is fun to watch. So sit back and listen as CJ and Dee discuss this film and comic book movies in general.

Us

So Jordan Peele's latest film, 'Us', has arrived and it ends up being a great movie that ends up rolling its ankle as the story progresses. Unlike Get Out, this is a film that will definitely need multiple viewings to really get everything out of it. So listen in as Dee, CJ, Sam from JVS, and Nagier from Big Gold Belt Group give their thoughts on this film.

Glass

M. Night has been on a bit of a resurgence since The Visit and its mainly due to him focusing more on the film than the spectre of the twist that he puts in the films itself. Glass is the 3rd movie in the trilogy of Unbreakable and Split that continues what this series set forth in having people with extraordinary abilities and what it means for the world they inhabit. You end up with a film that ends up being pretty good and entertaining in that you wanna see how it all ends.

Vice

So when it was announced that a movie would be made about Dick Cheney, the fear was that it would humanize him and gloss over the underhanded stuff he did as a politician. Well Vice ends up going full tilt in showing how much of an asshole Cheney really was in a bid to gain absolute power particularly when it came to him being with Bush Jr. Christian Bale knocks it out at Cheney but its Amy Adams that steals it as Lynne Cheney. Solid film from beginning to end.
