Rinema is the best way to share movies you love.

Insurance company drone by day, illustrator by night. I am not an intellectual moviegoer; give me a good superhero movie with lots of 'splosions or a Pixar flick and pass the popcorn.

I think Newt is on the spectrum

A perfectly fine addition to the Harry Potter-verse. The best parts for me were the world-building aspects. I thought the 1920s American wizarding world was fun to explore; the titular beasts, not so much. Eddie Redmayne does his typical performance in bringing Newt Scamander to life, which was good, but I probably wouldn't be interested in a whole franchise starring his character.

Best Gandalf joke ever

As relationship comedies go, it's very outside the box. Not everybody will end up with who you think, and it's not as contrived as your average rom-com. Good humor and performances.

I see what you did there

While there are too many better sports biopics for this to really stand out, it's a solid one with adequate performances.

Objection

Too dumb of a script to be so self-serious. I picture the execution of this movie as follows: a first-time director lands some terrific talent, but everyone is only available for one weekend, so it's hurriedly shot as everyone phones in these terrible lines for a paycheck. Not worth your time.

We're all one bad movie away from insanity

The graphic novel The Killing Joke was one of the best comics ever written. But it sure doesn't translate to an animated series screen version. This movie was just a bad idea.

Cute & cuddly

A pretty solid little comedy. And he IS a cute cat.

Just breathe quieter

A pretty well put together home invasion thriller with a twist. See it if you're in the mood for some competent scary craziness.

Nothing special

A movie that's not sure if it wants to be a sci-fi adventure or a family drama. Some good elements from both, but it mostly falls flat for me.

Follow Your Dreams

Heartfelt, personal stories of a group of people trying to follow their dreams, and the impact it can have on the rest of the group when one of them succeeds. You can tell that Birbiglia is speaking from personal experience in his writing of this script. A little gem.

Pluck out my eyes

Some of the laziest green-screen acting you'll ever see outside of the Star Wars prequels. Some of the actors are trying, but they just don't have much to do with what they're given.

"Never tell a soldier he doesn't know the cost"

Some powerful, tense moments surrounded by long uneventful ones. Good cast makes something mediocre slightly better.

Ugliest nun

James Wan is one of the few horror directors that can craft something legitimately spooky, not a movie just littered with fake stupid jump scares. He delivers pretty well in this one. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga have such great, watchable chemistry together as the Warrens. A good couple hours if you want some scares!
