Movie Reviewer

Patrick "Barney" Sullivan is a divorced father of one beautiful girl who he drags to the movies whenever he can, searching for the perfect family flick. Here, he writes movie reviews for us whenever he can but word to the wise.... Michael Barnes was heard saying once that Barney is « mostly wrong about everything » and that’s probably not far off. If you end up loving one of the films he points you too, be sure to let him know. It’s a thrill for him as he desperately needs validation.

Somewhat disjointed but still with enough special moments to be passable. This movie was a bit all over the place. Things really slow down in the 100-Acre Wood, which I didn't realize was supposed to be such a dreary place. The whole middle of the movie grinds to a bit of a halt but things pick up strongly in the final acts to make the experience worth it. It really does best when it just lets Pooh be Pooh. He's captured really well in this live-action...

I fell asleep but the songs are quite fun and really help lift this movie.

A pretty magical documentary on the career of one Fred Rogers and his life-long commitment to children.

Floored. A movie about nothing and everything at the same time.

Took my 7-year old daughter to this on a scorching Tuesday afternoon. So if I got a little sleepy, it was probably because of the air conditioning and bad popcorn. The first Incredibles movie was always going to be hard to top. It came out of nowhere and was full of amazing surprises. This one doesn't really have many surprises and feels fairly safe, with the best parts, in my opinion, being Edna since it is so reminiscent of the first movie (same set pieces and everything). ...

Visually intense and hilarious. Might put you to sleep with the overwhelming art of it.

Not what you'd expect, but still a pretty good coming-of-age story. I find this to be the most misleading trailer since Drive. I was expecting a super casual and light comedy about coming-out. Instead, I got Perks of Being a Wallflower morphing into You've Got Mail and then trying a Never Been Kissed type of epilogue. Luckily 2/3rds through the movie it turns into some pretty heavy drama and I think those are the best parts of the movie. The act of voluntarily versus involuntarily coming-out to your friends, to your family. Those moments are exceptionally...
