Critics have a hard enough time these days maintaining credibility in the face of being called shills for certain studios or even being criticized for being the wrong race and gender to review a movie in the first place. Fair or unfair, it is a bad look for the industry to turn into attack dogs that serve push the agenda of ideologues and I’m saying this as an openly biased critic. Is The Upside a great film? No, but it is a very good one but if you are waiting for mainstream critics to tell you that, you may be dealing with people who decided to sink the movie before it ever had a chance.
Detective Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson join forces to investigate a mysterious murder at Buckingham Palace.

Connecticut, home to rich elite Democrats who value lawns and driveways so they don’t live in New York City. Apparently, it is also the home to sociopathic teenagers who have to buy their friends and mull over killing people in order to bring any sense of joy to their miserable existence…so yeah they nailed Connecticut.
Well…It is the weekend before Christmas which is notoriously the busiest weekend of the year for movie theaters. So if the line you are in is too long for films like Aquaman, Bumblebee, and Mary Poppins Returns, you can always watch the latest Jennifer Lopez movie Second Act…I’m sure that the line will be pretty short.
I’m surprised that a movie that supports the adoption process was released from Hollywood, a place that only seems to support the idea of abortion. Well, don’t get too happy because the film is written and directed by Sean Anders, the man responsible for such smash hits as Daddy’s Home, Daddy’s Home 2, and Horrible Bosses 2
It’s probably true that most people have information on their phones that could destroy their lives or somebody else’s, then again that doesn’t excuse the fact that some individuals are just terrible people. Intimate Strangers is a film about one night that goes terribly wrong because everyone has a secret to hide.
Teddy Walker is a successful salesman whose life takes an unexpected turn when he accidentally blows up his place of employment. Forced to attend night school to get his GED, Teddy soon finds himself dealing with a group of misfit students, his former high school nemesis and a feisty teacher who doesn’t think he’s too bright.
As a young boy growing up in the countryside of Sussex, England, Christopher Robin (Orton O’Brien) spends his days playing the Hundred Acre Wood with his whimsical toy friends: nervous Piglet (Nick Mohammed), downbeat Eeyore (Brad Garett), fussy Rabbit (Peter Capaldi), scholarly Owl (Toby Jones), kind Kanga (Sophie Okonedo), little Roo (Sara Sheen), boisterous Tiger (Jim Cummings), and, of course, the lovably simply and ever so hungry Winnie the Pooh (Jim Cummings).
While many will enjoy this movie from a perspective of a basketball fan, moviegoers will probably not share their sentiment. As a person who grew up on 90s basketball, the idea of putting together a cast of some of the greatest to ever play the game led by current NBA superstar Kyrie Irving was pretty tough not to be excited by.
