If you’re looking to waste money, time and brain cells, go see ‘Father Figures.’ Whether it’s trying way too hard to be overly sentimental or ridiculously unfunny, FF never decides what kind of movie it wants to be. Big disappointment from an impressive cast.

‘Downsizing’ stretches itself thin over its lengthy two-plus hour runtime, touching on interesting ideas but never diving deep enough. An extremely interesting concept that doesn’t quite deliver.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”
My quick, spoiler-free thoughts:
– Rey solidified as my favorite Star Wars character
– Beautiful symbolism/parallels to the trilogy
– Not an Empire remake — lots of unexpected plot twists
– Love the exploration of the Force
– Powerful women & POC = good
– Porgs = bad#TheLastJedi

After further review including a second viewing, I’ve come to the decision that… Porgs are, in fact, good. Final answer. #TheLastJedi

‘Justice League’ erases any progress the DCEU made with ‘Wonder Woman.’ Rushed exposition of new heroes, sloppy villain with no motivation. Cyborg, Batfleck and Superman are weak, wanted more Aquaman. Just give us a Flash/Wonder Woman movie and call it a day.

“Only the Brave”
‘Only the Brave’ delivers a raw & gripping story of true heroism. Excellent use of simultaneously developing characters & building conflict.

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle”
‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ brilliantly blends violence & art in a way few movies can. Don’t expect any awards, just 2 hours of pure fun.

'American Assassin' was a pleasant surprise. Despite its cliches, Keaton shines + constant, gripping action. Expect a franchise for O'Brien.

So, "It" was basically scary "Stranger Things."

“The Hitman’s Bodyguard”
'The Hitman's Bodyguard' is ridiculous, overblown action w/ far too much profanity-laden banter. Chemistry is there, dialogue is brainless.

Wow… @WindRiverMovie is amazing & heartbreaking. A thrilling drama full of tense action & raw emotion. Excited to see more from E. Olsen.

“The Dark Tower”
"The Dark Tower" raises more questions than it answers. Both the story & the camera are all over the place making both difficult to follow.
— Zach Goins (@zach_goins) August 11, 2017
'Dunkirk' shows the terror of war in its simplest form. Nolan creates suspense/intensity w/ minimal action & Zimmer's score only adds depth.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" is two plus hours of pure fun. Holland is finally the young, inexperienced, geeky hero fans have been waiting on!
— Zach Goins (@zach_goins) July 8, 2017
Don't think I've ever seen a movie perfectly blend high-speed action with art and cinematography like "Baby Driver" does. Highly recommend.

"The House" had its moments, but wasn't nearly as hilarious as I expected. For two of comedy's biggest names, Ferrell & Poehler disappoint.
— Zach Goins (@zach_goins) July 1, 2017
"Rough Night" is the stupidly hilarious movie it's expected to be. Chemistry makes up for the weak plot and McKinnon steals the show again.

“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”
"Dead Men Tell No Tales" wasn't very good, but seeing Will and Elizabeth finally reunite at the very end made it all worthwhile. #OTP

"Wonder Woman" was freaking amazing. So glad to finally see another good DC movie. Gal Gadot is an absolute bad ass. #wonderwoman
— Zach Goins (@zach_goins) June 3, 2017
'Hacksaw Ridge' excellently tells a story of courage & faith. Garfield justifies his best actor nom & Vaughn's comedic balance is perfect.

“La La Land”
I really didn't want to like "La La Land" because everyone in the world loves it, but wow that was good. The hype is well deserved.
— Zach Goins (@zach_goins) February 25, 2017
Just finished "Moonlight" in round two of tonight's double header. An excellent, heartbreaking movie about finding your identity.
— Zach Goins (@zach_goins) February 25, 2017
McCavoy's ability to seamlessly switch between nine of his 24 characters combined with Shyamalan's classic twists makes "Split" a must see.
— Zach Goins (@zach_goins) January 21, 2017
'Why Him?' — The crude comedy it's expected to be. Cranston/Franco's chemistry is surprisingly great, but Key's "Gustav" steals every scene.
— Zach Goins (@zach_goins) December 25, 2016
'Assassin's Creed' was a mess. A cast with Fassbender/Cotillard had potential, but it seemed catered to gamers and lacked an engaging plot.
— Zach Goins (@zach_goins) December 21, 2016
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”
Rogue One was dope, you guys.
— Zach Goins (@zach_goins) December 16, 2016
'Moana' was a great time. Beautiful animation, music and story. Disney never fails to disappoint. Plus, @TheRock kills it singing.
