Five Feet Apart is directed by Justin Baldoni and stars Haley Lu Richardson, Cole Sprouse, Moises Arias, Emily Baldoni, Kimberly Hebert Gregory, Parminder Nagra, and Claire Forlani. The plot of the movie is a pair of teenagers with life-threatening illnesses meet in a hospital and fall in love. I loved everything about this movie. Haley Lu Richardson plays the main character Stella and I thought she did a fantastic job. She is a really likable character very hopefully and that makes it easy to feel for her. She is also really good in the emotional scenes. She was my favorite part of this movie and I look forward to seeing more from her. Cole Sprouse plays Will, and he also did an amazing job. He has great Chemistry with Haley Lu Richardson. Moises Arias plays Poe he is Stella’s best friend he also has Cystic Fibrosis. From the trailer I thought he was going to be the comic relief and he is a little bit, but he adds something to the movie and it definitely would not be the same without him. Another aspect to this movie that I appreciated a lot is the realism. They act like real people doing real things having normal conversations. I like how they use the videos that Stella makes to relay information, and they show and use her videos in a way that doesn’t make it feel like they’re hitting you over the head with exposition. This movie also does a good job of balancing the humor and the emotional moments. 5 out of 5 stars for Five Feet Apart. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
Captain Marvel is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law. The plot of the movie is Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. I was really excited to see this movie since Captain Marvel is going to play a big part in Avengers: Endgame. There are parts of this movie that are entertaining specifically the chemistry between Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson which lead to some of the funniest scenes in the movie. The two play off each other very well. The CGI de-aging that was done to Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg was fantastic to the point where I didn’t even notice it. I also liked parts of the opining moments where she the training with Jude Law’s character. There is this fight scene where she has these metal braces on her hands, and she has to punch people really hard to try and get them off that was my favorite fight in the movie. The majority of the movie however is disappointing. Visually the film is very dull. There is a fight scene in a spaceship where it is very dark and that makes it hard to tell what is going on. Other than that opining action scene the rest of the fight scenes are not exciting. The villains of the film are Scrolls they can turn into anyone this leads to a very entertaining chase scenes with Nick Fury trying to catch up to a train that Captain Marvel is trying to infiltrate. Other than that scene the potential of what they could have done with the Scrolls was wasted. The biggest problem with the film and what scares me going into Avengers: Endgame is Brie Larson she did a great job in the scenes between Captain Marvel and Nick Fury, but in every other scene she is very wooden. 2 out of 5 stars for Captain Marvel. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
How to Train your Dragon: The Hidden World is directed by Dean DeBlois and stars Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, and F. Murray Abraham. The plot of the movie is when Hiccup discovers Toothless isn’t the only Night Fury, he must seek “The Hidden World”, a secret Dragon Utopia before a hired tyrant named Grimmel finds it first. This is a perfect way to end this trilogy. I loved every minute of this movie. The ending will make you tear up. The animation in this movie is breathtaking It’s amazing to see how far the animation has come. The level of detail, the scope of the action sequences, the way these characters really come alive and the way they interact and how great the world is because the animation is so good visually this movie is stunning. What I really love about these movies is the scope of the films expands not just the action, but the emotional storytelling. The movie really focuses on the relationship between Hiccup and Toothless these two have become a great pair over the course of this series the movie opens and you just fell this warm friendship between these two characters. This time Toothless finds a Light Fury who he falls in love with and that lead to one of the funniest scenes in the movie. Hiccup and Toothless story is brought to a very satisfying and logical conclusion. The action sequences are impressive they are intense the way they are shot is beautiful. The movie is filled with such warmth and such hart that’s something I have really loved about this series and seeing these characters come to their end and seeing the story come to a conclusion is bittersweet, but I couldn’t imagine a better conclusion. In my opinion, this is a perfect trilogy. 5 out of 5 stars for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 is directed by Dean DeBlois and stars Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T. J. Miller, Kristen Wiig, Djimon Hounsou, and Kit Harington. The plot of the movie is when Hiccup and Toothless discover an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. This film is even better than the first it does things the original did not do in regards to character. At its core, it’s really an adult animated film. The story is something the entire family can enjoy. Kids will enjoy the cool flying dragon scenes. Adults can get into the story and be invested in it this is a really mature film. I always like it when an animated movie that is aimed at families and children treat those children with respect. The movie expects kids to be interested in the story, not just the visuals. There is a lot in the movie about family background and growing up. The CGI is beautiful and the technical aspects of the movie like the character animations are amazing. Also, it is great to see Toothless flying those scenes are so much fun. 5 out of 5 stars for How to Train Your Dragon 2. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
How to Train Your Dragon is directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois and stars Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T. J. Miller, and Kristen Wiig. The plot of the movie is a hapless young Viking who aspires to hunt dragons becomes the unlikely friend of a young dragon himself, and learns there may be more to the creatures than he assumed. This movie is fantastic. The voice acting is really good here Jay Baruchel is great as the main character Hiccup, and the supporting cast are all commendable as well. They really do a nice job of bringing these characters to life, and really making you care about them. Also, the animation is really well done here the landscapes, the character designs, and the action are all top notch. The relationship between Hiccup and Toothless is the highlight of the film. 5 out of 5 stars for How to Train Your Dragon.

Happy Death Day 2U is directed by Christopher Landon and stars Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Phi Vu, Suraj Sharma, Sarah Yarkin, and Ruby Modline. The plot of the movie is Tree Gelbman discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead. I thought the first Happy Death Day was decent. Just about every time that this movie is trying to be scary they go for the old someone is creeping through a hallway and they are nearing a corner and the music is building formula that we have seen over and over again. The movie is trying to be more of a comedy than a horror film and it fails. The only person that I cared about in this movie was Tree played by Jessica Rothe just like in the first movie her performance was terrific. She is great in the emotional scenes. There is a choice that her character has to make and it was one of the few scenes in the movie that I enjoyed. 1 out of 5 stars for Happy Death Day 2U. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
Cold Pursuit is directed by Hans Petter Moland and stars Liam Neeson, Tom Bateman, Tom Jackson, Emmy Rossum, Domenick Lombardozzi, Julia Jones, John Doman, and Laura Dern. The plot of the movie is a snowplow driver seeks revenge against the drug dealers he thinks killed his son. I was excited to see this movie I am a big fan of Liam Neeson and even when the movie that he is in isn’t great he is fun to watch. That is very much the case here I was very disappointed by this movie. It is really over-the-top and not in a good way. Everyone in the cast is pretty awful with two exceptions Liam Neeson who ever since Taken I fell has played the same character, but it works. The other standout was child actor Nicholas Holmes who makes his character really endearing. After the first act, Liam Neeson disappears until the third act. The characters that are in the second act are boring and the actors don’t do anything to help that which really made the movie drag. 2 out of 5 stars for Cold Pursuit. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
