64% Bird Box (2018) All in all, Bird Box is a solid film. It offers strong characterizations, plenty of chills and a lot of bloody endings. Sure, there are things the book does better, which is to be expected.‐ The Daily Times (Tennessee)

63% Ricki And The Flash (2015) It's not a film to write home about, but its honesty - albeit something hard to watch - is admirable.‐ The Daily Times (Tennessee)

93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) Personally, the addition of Pegg to the M:I family is one of the smartest moves ever.‐ The Daily Times (Tennessee)

66% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) It delivers laughs that are actually funny. And it's got action sequences that are thrilling without being overdone.‐ The Daily Times (Tennessee)

15% The 5th Wave (2016) Maybe the novel fleshes out the story and the characters, but that doesn't really help anybody who is going to see this movie.‐ The Daily Times (Tennessee)

45% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) es, it's a premise that begs for over-the-top antics as Austen's world meets the undead. But it's done well.‐ The Daily Times (Tennessee)

87% John Wick (2014) It's moviemaking at its basest, possibly highest, calling: the creation of dreams and screen legends, enchantment, escapism.‐ The Daily Times (Tennessee)

52% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) I'm still not convinced that we actually needed this rebooted series, but it's getting better - even if it is at a glacial pace. Recommended for diehard Spider-Man fans only.‐ The Daily Times (Tennessee)

45% The Girl on the Train (2016) Tate and Wilson cut the fat from the source material and made it into a must-see event. You could do much worse than skipping the book and watching the movie.‐ The Daily Times (Tennessee)

79% Halloween (2018) Halloween might be a so-so horror movie, or it might be amazing. I honestly don't care. It's a film about a strong woman standing up and doing what it takes to protect her family. On that mark, it hits every note.‐ The Daily Times (Tennessee)
