Gal Gadot brings the comic book character Wonder Woman to life in this great superhero film. She plays the role of Diana, who lives on a hidden island. It is here she is trained to be a warrior like no other. She is forced to leave the island when the island is discovered and she finds out there is a massive war taking place. With a fair amount of violence and suggestive content, the movie is rated PG-13.
A tale as old as time gets a modern makeover with Disney’s live action version of Beauty and the Beast. Emma Watson and Dan Stevens do a great job of bringing the classic characters to life in live form. When it was released in theaters earlier, it became the top grossing live action musical. It’s got great characters, costumes, music, and an unforgettable storyline.
Harry Potter is a classic. It’s one of those magical stories that lives on forever, because it is filled with so much of wonder and delight. This wonderful set includes every movie in the series on DVD. The series starts out introducing us to Harry Potter and with each film the plot gets more interesting and darker. Now she can watch Harry Potter at anytime and whenever she wants to go back to Hogwarts.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is both a prequel and sequel. This is easily the worst of the Harry Potter movies, as some may find it boring. It almost seems like you don’t care much about these characters. The biggest hit against this movie is that it’s so messy, packed with too much, and hard to follow even for long-time fans. But by no means is it an awful movie, as there’s some enjoyment here. Visually it’s beautiful and most of the performances are excellent. In the opening of the film they setup the villain but failed to really do anything with his powers. Because it acts like its epic, we can still see fans liking the movie. But it’s slow-paced and really drawn out. For die-hard Harry Potter fans, there are things that don’t make sense. Although it’s a bit disappointing, fans may still want to check out this installment.
Disney’s Descendants 2 is a live action sequel that is all about the children of popular Disney Villains. It originally showed on the Disney channel. While it is darker, it picks off right where the first film left off. Parents should know that the movie does include the subject of witchcraft. Expect a lot of colorful musical numbers, melodrama, and plenty of fantasy.
Wonder is wonderful! It’s already hard going to Middle School, but for Auggie it is even harder. He has a rare facial deformity that makes it super difficult. When people see him, they call him names and stare. It’s story about bullies, acceptance, and kindness. The ending will leave you in tears.
Who isn’t in love with Nicholas Sparks? In this romantic film, Liam leaves behind his high school sweetheart, Josie, at the altar. Eight years later he returns to his hometown to discover what he left behind. Based on the book, the film is beautifully cast and captivating. It’s the perfect movie for a girl’s night.
Love, Simon is a coming out movie based on the book. This movie adaption of the Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is just as heartwarming. 17 year old Simon Spier is gay and is keeping it a secret from the entire world. Simon soon develops an online relationship with a mysterious boy named Blue. It’s a fairytale romance that you won’t be able to stop watching again and again.
Starring Zac Efron, Zendaya, and Hugh Jackman this spectacular musical will have you singing along. While it is over the top, it tells the biographal story of the P.T. Barnum and his show stopping circus acts. With its big bold performances and musical numbers, it feels like a circus musical. While there is a lot of spectacle, it has a powerful message of accepting everybody even if they are different.
This sequel to Mamma Mia takes us back in time through a series of flashbacks. Everybody knows that the story is just there to tie the exciting musical number together. It’s the fanciful choreographed dancing sequences that steal the show. You won’t be able to resist singing “Dancing Queen” again.
The first live action Pokemon movie is here. From Pikachu to Mr. Mime, the live action movie brings the our favorite trading card characters to life. Detective Pikachu is an intriguing mystery and whodunnit story. It centers on a young man named Tim who is investigating the disappearance of his father.

Marvel and the Russo Brothers have done a great job of understanding what these characters are to so many fans. It’s a very fun, exciting, and enjoyable movie. Thanos feels like a real badass villain. Every scene feels huge and the humor is on point and it’s funny when it needs to be. It’s packed with action scenes, memorable characters, and some shocking moments. The biggest praise we can give it is that we can’t wait to see what happens next!
Although Black Panther is not a flawless film, it’s a real blast. Instead of making another superhero movie, there’s actually a relevant message in this movie. My favorite part is how the characters get to the point where they are looking at themselves and looking at how they can make their lives, friendships, and the world better as a result. Killmonger is a great villain. It starts out as a regular superhero movie then kicks it into high gear towards the middle. But what’s really amazing about this film is you’re not thinking about the action, you’re thinking about the things that shape these characters into who they become.
Directed by Steven Spielberg, Ready Player One excels in its dazzling action sequences. However, the characters don’t have as much staying power as the awe-inspiring visuals. There’s joy in seeing video game and anime character references. Spielberg’s razor-sharp command of stunning action sequences and his unique sensibilities for sustained awe are unmatched. It’s enjoyably diverting and speaks to the nerd in us in some way, shape, or form. The film’s message could have been better with more scrutiny around why Wade and his friends feel disenchanted with the real world as they do.
The Incredibles 2 is a fantastic movie. It’s extremely exciting and fun to watch. It understands what a superhero movie needs and has great messages underneath. The animation is stunning and has improved as has the depth and clarity of the images. The action sequences are enthralling. The lighting is impressive and represents Pixar’s best work. The characters feel fresh with intelligent conversation. The movie was epic and exhilarating. Brad Bird wrote a compelling story true to the original while also creating an exciting movie.
Tomb Raider is based on the 2013 reboot game and it follows it very closely. This is one of the most visually faithful videogame adaptations ever made. Fans of the game will be happy to see it faithfully translated onto the big screen. The character of Lara Croft has never been more realistically portrayed in a movie. Alicia Vikander does an excellent job of portraying Lara. Tomb Raider fans will mostly be happy with this adaptation. It’s a fun action thriller.
Through beautiful artwork and animation, Disney and Pixar are masters at telling stories. Coco is another Pixar masterpiece. Coco is about a boy name Miguel who wants to be a musician but his family doesn’t support his dream. Miguel soon finds himself in the Land of the Dead when he searches for his roots. The film beautiful weaves Hispanic and cultures in its narrative. With an interesting plot, intriguing characters, and beautiful animation, Coco is unforgettable.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a really entertaining Star Wars movie with a unique voice and vision. It’s a very funny movie like The Force Awakens. The fan service doesn’t come at the expense of the characters or story. The action sequences are among the best in a Star Wars movie. Overall, it’s an enjoyable movie. It has some of the best performances in the entire saga, a compelling and conflicted villain, and tons of surprises.
14 year olds were too you to see the original trilogy on the big screen so this is the next best thing. It’s a great way to catch up on the series. The set includes A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return Of the Jedi.
Who doesn’t love Star Wars? The prequel trilogy is the best way to get hooked on the Star Wars saga. It contains The Phantom Menace, Attack Of The Clones, and Revenge Of Sith.
The Force Awakens was an important chapter in the Star Wars saga from director J.J. Abrams. Where is Luke Skywalker when the galaxy needs him most? It’s time for a new hero to rise to return peace to the galaxy. Fans won’t want to miss this one!
It’s Star Wars. What could be better? The prequel trilogy will benefit any Star Wars lover or someone looking to get caught up on the series. You will watch little Anakin Skywalker become Darth Vader, witness the Battle of Naboo, and watch the rise of the evil Galactic Empire. The movies have never looked better than in HD.
Have you ever wondered how Hans Solo met Chewbacca or how he got his last name? Solo is a standalone movie in the Star Wars universe that gives us a back story to Hans Solo. Alden Ehrenreich does a great job filling Harrison Ford’s shoes, but it’s Donald Glover’s portrayal of Lando that manages to steal the show.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is an animated movie featuring Miles Morales in his first feature film. When he’s bitten by a radioactive spider, he stumbles upon a machine that enables parallel universes containing other Spider-Men and Spider-Women to collide. They have to team up against the Kingpin. Surprisingly, this is even better than Homecoming and the animation is spectacular. The characters are more developed and the movie has better storytelling. Where this movie succeds is it really feels cohesive as a whole and the comedy binds it together so well. It’s surprisingly hilarious. Humor is brilliantly used throughout to improve the impact of the storytelling. It’s easily the most comic-book inspired Spider-Man movie ever. There are some fun cameos and a top-notch end credit scene you don’t want to miss. It’s evident the makers understand the characters of Spider-Man so well, as they’re really well realized. The action sequences are thrilling and the humor is great, making it one of the better Spider-Man movies. In fact, it’s so good that we can’t wait for a sequel.
With a new director, setting, and star, Bumblebee condenses a lot of what the Transformers movies have overblown. It’s easily the best of the Transformers movies since the first. What makes this different is they understand what Transformers fans want to see. This film has a sense of joy that’s missing in the Michael Bey Transformers movies. It’s a fresh new vision that course corrects the franchise. Bumblebee is an enjoyable movie. Unlike other Transformers films, you won’t feel bad about seeing it, because it’s plain fun. Steinfeld is terrific in the movie and the action sequences are well executed. Fans will appreciate there’s a Transformers movie that respects the legacy.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is an awesome new entry in this blockbuster franchise. Fans love this movie and your teen will, too. The producers have changed the focus on Peter as a student who is also Spider-Man. Because of this change, you actually get a better understanding of Peter Parker. It’s a welcome addition that is truly fun and entertaining. It’s one of those movies you want to watch multiple times.

This film does what Winter Soldier did for Captain America. This movie gives Thor a major boost, likability, and a great sense of freshness. What’s so great is that it takes everything we know about Thor and dismantles it. But the heart of his character is still intact. Everyone in the movie steals the movie. This is easily one of my favorite Marvel movies. It’s everything I want to see in a superhero movie. It’s extremely fun and likable and the action scenes are like an adrenaline-rush. This is easily the best of the Thor movies and it’s extremely funny. It’s one of those movies that’s so satisfying to experience that you forget you’re watching a movie because you’re so wrapped up in it. Get ready to have a blast; it’s a great superhero movie.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is an entertaining sequel to the original blockbuster. It’s packed with action, heart, jokes, an engaging plot that develops the Galactic side well, and it will even make you laugh. It’s even more fun than the first movie with fun characters.
Justice League feels like a consistent movie even though it was directed by two people. It’s a surprisingly light-hearted movie. It’s an easy, enjoyable watch. It was a delight to see The Flash brought to life on the silver screen. It’s a step in the right direction, but it feels a bit rushed perhaps due to Warner’s 2-hour movie limit mandate. There wasn’t as much depth in the team as there could have been. Hard-core comics fans will appreciate the film more than general audiences. It’s self-aware and entertaining but disposable.

The Death of Superman brings back a familiar storyline we’ve seen before. While this version is closer to the comics than past versions, it fails to bring anything fresh to this tale. It also doesn’t give the plot elements enough room to truly resonate with fans. Also, we weren’t too thrilled about the villain, Doomsday, as he seems to merely be a plot device. Wonder Woman is the only one who seems to have any emotional connection to Superman. Overall, it begs the question: Why kill off Superman if you’re not going to explore into any newer or greater effect than before? The animation lacks the visual flair to distinguish it from others; it all just feels too similar to past entries. The sequel setup is obvious and quick that it undercuts the need to mourn Superman or hunger for his return.
Is he a huge Mission: Impossible fan? Then you’ll want to add this must-have complete 6 movie bundle to your collection. It contains all six movies in the blockbuster action-packed series. Each movie comes on a separate disc. These are great popcorn movies that don’t disappoint.
Starring Zac Efron, Zendaya, and Hugh Jackman, this spectacular musical will have you singing along. While it is over the top, it tells the biographal story of the P.T. Barnum and his show stopping circus acts. With its big bold performances and musical numbers, it feels like a circus musical. While there is a lot of spectacle, it has a powerful message of accepting everybody even if they are different.
Rise of the Skywalker is a bit of a mixed bag. With that said, it’s not a movie we hate and it’s not as bad as some people say. The biggest complaint is that the story is a bit messy with a convoluted, boring opening act. There’s a lot of explaining and catch-up. They managed to get Leia into this conclusion without botching it. It’s a beautiful movie with exciting action scenes. But even though it’s visually appealing, it seems to be lacking something emotionally. Kylo Ren is explored deeply in this film, which is satisfying. There are aspects hardcore fans will like and dislike. The characters are handled well, there are fun action sequences, but as a trilogy it doesn’t feel as a cohesive whole.
Sonic fans will want to check out Sonic the Hedgehog. Fans won’t be disappointed by Sonic’s portrayal. It’s by no means a great movie, but it’s as good as a Sonic movie can get. While there aren’t a whole lot of surprises, it’s enjoyable along the way. The new character design overhaul was definitely worth it. This doesn’t feel like a cash grab — they really took care in crafting something that’s entertaining for fans. Jim Carrey has a lot of fun in his role as Dr. Robotnik. If you’re not already a Sonic fan, you’re probably not going to like this movie. Although it’s full of cliches and tropes, it’s going to please most Sonic fans. Quite frankly, it’s better than most video game movies.
Avengers: Endgame brings several storylines to a fantastic conclusion and it’s a highly satisfying film. The Avengers feel the most human they’ve ever felt. While the first act is slow and the second act is packed with action, the final act is pure awesomeness. While the pacing and cohesiveness of the film is as not as good as Infinity War, Endgame is more emotionally satisfying and takes more risks. It’s an enjoyeable film that delivers plenty of fan service. Most fans will love this film. It’s one of the biggest box office blockbusters of all-time.
Woody, Buzz, and Bo Peep are back in the fourth movie in this amazing animated series. Bo Peep has been re-imagined as a strong woman complete with a cape. Our favorite character- Forky ,who is having an identity crisis. Is he a toy?
