Wonder - Barney's Incorrect Five Second Reviews

So this was a big experiment for me. I wanted to bring 7-yr old Emily to her first non-kid movie that's not a cartoon. I thought this would be a good one since it deals with bullying and going to school and all that. It's adapted from the book about a young home-schooled boy who begins to attend real school. He was born with a bunch of physical abnormalities and after several plastic surgeries, his parents decide he's ready to go to school with real kids. So you can imagine what the movie is basically...

Brought 7-year old Emily to this and it was a hit. I must admit I slept through at least the first half of the movie. I think trying to introduce a bunch of clay characters is tough since they are fairly indistinguishable and the voice actors aren't strong enough to make them unique. This style of animation works well for Shaun the Sheep since all the characters are pretty much the same except for Shaun, the farmer and the dog. You don't need to know the different sheep at all. So in this one, everyone looks and sounds...
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - Barney's Incorrect Five Second Reviews

This should be a fun review to write. First of all, let me get it off my chest that the movie should have just been called Three Billboards. I don't know why they went with this title. I loved this movie and was constantly moved while watching it, trying to figure out exactly what it was. Enjoying the ride the entire way, mind you. I think in many ways this movie is this year's Manchester by the Sea but doesn't hit the same level of perfection (but it's close). ...

Only the 1st 2018 movie I've seen and already it's better than 83% of movies I saw in 2017. Stellar start to a new year of movies. Took 6-year old Emily to see this and we both totally loved it. I couldn't believe how much I was laughing out loud. All the time. I know nothing of Paddington, not having seen the first one (which I hear is good), nor having read the books. Same with Emily. You don't need to have previous exposure to love this movie. It's a total joy and...

Great flick on a 17-year old boy falling in summer love for the first time somewhere in Northern Italy in the early 80s. Great lead performance as well as the supporting cast. Chalamet has been in two of my favourite movies of this year. Can't wait to see him in more things down the road. The scene between son and father on the couch is worth the price of admission alone. I'd never believe that the actor who plays the comic relief in Men in Black III would be able to pull off a scene like...

Had no idea what this was about, and went alone. I had heard that Kevin Spacey got replaced by Christopher Plummer and that's all I knew. Overall it's a good tense ransom movie but it is very far from great. I don't think Mark Whalberg has the chops for this type of role, but it's not an especially interesting character to play in his defence. Christopher Plummer (who i admire) plays almost the exact same character from Inside Man, so that's annoying. I mostly just enjoyed the scenes in Italy of the kidnappee...

Great companion piece to Dunkirk. One of which is the war movie of getting 300k troops off a beach, the other is a war drama about the politics behind getting those dudes home (and dealing with everything else in the early war). I don't remember Gary Oldman ever being the leading role in anything off-hand. Even Dracula was a supportive role. After seeing this film, you'll wonder why Oldman hasn't been given more room to shine in the past. He is utterly transformed as Winston Churchill. You will not see a speck of Oldman in...

Well that was pretty damn good. I went with three much older people, two in their golden years. All of whom have very little exposure to Star Wars and one of which practically none. They all loved it. I really wanted to know what watching a movie like this would be like if you don't come at it with the nostalgic baggage that some of us have been carrying around since 1977. That nostalgic baggage is what kept me from enjoying anything about the prequels other than Darth Maul having a...

I've had to sleep on this a couple of nights before figuring out how to write or talk about this movie. Is it this year's Manchester By the Sea? ...maybe. There's so much subject matter to dodge talking about since I would never want to colour anyone's viewing of this movie. i went in completely dark. It's basically the story of what life is like for a kid growing up, living in discount inn(s) close to Disney World, where her mom can barely afford to live full-time. So it's a mix of what...

Pixar pulls off another paradox in delivering a hilarious tear-jerker. Took 6-yr old Emily to this and she loved it, as did I. It's visually stunning and the music is great. Really tough subject matter to tackle and they did so in a beautiful way for kids to interpret and understand. There was this massive short film on Frozen beforehand that seemed to go on forever and felt a little rushed and easy when it came to forcing songs. This led me to better appreciate the use of music in Coco....
