WELCOME

I'm Kevinthecritic. I have been writing film reviews since I was ten years old and decided to start putting them up. This site will be comprised of those reviews as well as new articles on current and older films and TV shows. Good, bad, unmentionably terrible, nothing is safe from my criticism.

ENJOY!

Peppermint: Jennifer Garner Carries Predictable Revenge Flick to the Finish Line

2.5 out of 5 stars (decent) Jennifer Garner is an extremely talented actress.  Gaining fame on TV’s Alias, Garner continued to show her range across multiple genres, often being a high point in most of her films.  That continues with Peppermint, a revenge thriller in the vein of Death Wish that, despite a mostly predictable script and overzealous editing, manages to succeed on Garner’s devotion to the Continue Reading

Crazy Rich Asians: Romantic Dramedy Promotes Positive Representation, Despite Flaws

Crazy Rich Asians Poster

3.5 out of 5 stars (Above Average) Crazy Rich Asians is a pretty big deal.  Not only is it a mainstream film promoting positive representation of Asian culture, but it is also a funny, sweet, and sometimes thought-provoking look at the bonds of family.  Anyone expecting this to be a turn-your-brain-off yuk fest will surely be disappointed, but for people who go in with an open mind, Crazy Rich Asians should Continue Reading

Christopher Robin: Disney’s Heartfelt Tearjerker a Perfect Family Film

4 Tigger-Bounced, Honey-Soaked stars out of 5 (One of the best of the year) I have long been against Disney’s current trend of reimagining their classic films for modern audiences.  While they strike gold on occasion (Pete’s Dragon), more often then not, these films lack the spirit of their originals and grossly misrepresent their iconic characters (Maleficent).  Therefore, it gives me immense pleasure to Continue Reading

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: Dino Sequel Darker, Scarier, and More Thrilling

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Poster

3.5 out of 5 stars (above average) I am baffled by the critical reception to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.  Sitting at an unbelievable 51% critics rating on Rottentomatoes.com, reviewers are claiming this entry is stale, unimaginative, and lacking the magic of its predecessors.  I completely disagree with those criticisms and believe the film actually improves the series by being darker, scarier, and Continue Reading

Pitch Perfect 3: Third Installment an Aca-tastrophe Worth Seeing

Pitch Perfect 3 Poster

2 out of 5 stars (has some good moments, but is overall bad) Pitch Perfect 3 is the third installment in the musical comedy series about  a cappella and  the bonds of sisterhood.  If you enjoyed the other two and want one last hurrah with the Bellas, then you should embrace your inner completionist and seek this out.  And, even if you’ve never cared for this series, I would still recommend it purely to watch Continue Reading

Infinity War: Mega Marvel Team-Up Should Thrill Fans, Confuse All Others

Avengers: Infinity War Poster

4 out of 5 stars (one of the best in its series) Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of the past 10 years of superhero movies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Fans of the franchise will laugh and cry as their favorite heroes go up against the toughest foe they’ve ever encountered, while non-fans will wonder what all the fuss is about.  Essentially, this is a movie for the devotees of this Continue Reading
