My first impulse after ‘Anna’ was to dismiss it as entirely trash. Then I calmed down, slept on it for a day and decided most of it was merely bland leaving the screenplay as the sole disastrous component. Even though I had set my bar right in the core of the earth’s crust, somehow this aggressive troll job of a film found a way to be clotheslined into my 2019 pit of shame; where ‘Glass’ longed for some company.

'Toy Story 4' Review
When Pixar officially announced, back in 2014, that they were developing “Toy Story 4”, just four years after “TS3”, the general reaction was not enthusiastic. “Toy Story 3” was the perfect ending to this beloved series (which was then followed by a few sweet holiday specials).
Richard Roundtree made his film acting debut in 1971’s “Shaft”, which became a blaxploitation classic. Samuel L. Jackson continued the legacy of the character 29 years later in the part remake, part sequel, “Shaft”. Now, Jessie T. Usher makes it three generations in the new follow-up — also simply called “Shaft”.

'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' review
Of my many cinematic regrets, not seeing Garth Edwards' 'Godzilla' on the big screen towers over my other qualms. Procrastination, always a thief of time, can also be a thief of joy. Edwards' 2014 film angles the titan as an awe-inspiring deity impossible to comprehend but deserving of our worship. Edwards did not think us worthy enough of the full splendor of Godzilla, feeding him to us in bits with an infectious sense of sweeping wonder heightened by Alexandre Desplat's majestic score.
