Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
6/10 43% The Song of Names (2019) The movie is entertaining but not as momentous as the actors and subject matter would indicate. Young actors Gerran Howell and Jonah Hauer-King are standouts.‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 97% The Garden Left Behind (2019) A direct view of the life of a transgender woman trying to solve her life story and all the problems surrounding it. Sometimes it seems too much drama is being crammed into one movie but the overall effect is striking.‐ jackiekcooper.com

4/10 16% Dolittle (2020) How could the makers of 'Dolittle' do so little to make this family film have a spark of entertainment value. Iron Man comes across as a tin man with no heart and no soul as well as very little wit‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 77% Bad Boys for Life (2020) This movie is titled "bad boys" (plural) but is really Will Smith's movie - and it will do a lot to redeem his career.‐ jackiekcooper.com

3/10 20% Like a Boss (2020) Crude and coarse, but worst of all it is not funny. Horribly scripted and terribly acted, this is another wound to Haddish's career.‐ jackiekcooper.com

7/10 44% Three Christs (2020) An amazing ensemble of actors creates a compelling story based on true events. This movie deserves to be seen.‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 91% The Lighthouse (2019) A muddy, murky mess of a movie. I almost went crazy trying to figure out if the characters were crazy. Still Willem Dafoe can do no wrong when it comes to acting.‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 49% Underwater (2020) The movie held my interest even with Kristen Stewart in the lead which is usually enough to turn me off any film. But though there was not enough back story or character development, Stewart made a pretty compelling heroine.‐ jackiekcooper.com

8/10 89% 1917 (2020) Worth seeing for the cinematography alone (thanks Roger Deakins); but also has a gripping storyline and solid acting performances by the two male leads.‐ jackiekcooper.com

7/10 99% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) Unexpected, quirky, funny, horrific, dramatic - all of these things, but also just a bit tedious in parts. Not your average movie for sure.‐ jackiekcooper.com

4/10 19% The Grudge (2020) A modicum of suspense and thrills can't wash away the errors in the script and in the performances. John Cho, Jacki Weaver, Demian Bichir - what are you doing in this movie?‐ jackiekcooper.com
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2020
6/10 89% The Two Popes (2019) A good movie about a long conversation between a present and future pope. Hopkins and Pryce are at the top of their game.‐ jackiekcooper.com

8/10 80% Jojo Rabbit (2019) A cross between "Inglorious Bastards" and "The Diary of Anne Frank." This movie will sneak up on you and overwhelm you with its emotional core. ‐ jackiekcooper.com

7/10 84% Just Mercy (2020) Jamie Foxx is deservedly getting award buzz for this movie but it is Tim Blake Nelson who gives the most award worthy performance.‐ jackiekcooper.com

3/10 92% Uncut Gems (2019) Lord knows I disliked this movie. My ears were ringing by the time I escaped. But I do have to hand it to Adam Sandler. He delivered an unexpected performance.‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 95% Little Women (2019) I liked this movie, but I wanted to love this movie. Ronan can do no wrong but Timothee Chalamet was miscast. Plus Greta Gerwig's back and forth story-telling drove me to distraction.‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 20% Cats (2019) If you loved the play you will most probably love the movie. I abhorred the play so the movie didn't stand much of a chance. Still it was better than I expected (which wasn't much).‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Wanted it to end on a magnificent note but it didn't. Still it was good entertainment. Maybe if they had followed George Lucas' notes it would have been epic.‐ jackiekcooper.com

8/10 95% Marriage Story (2019) This a movie so horrendously detailed about a divorce that at first you are rooting for him, then her, then him, and on and on. The movie will haunt you forever and will get better and better in your memory.‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 90% Dark Waters (2019) Good story, Ruffalo is good; but too drawn out and man what a waste of Anne Hathaway's talent!‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 96% The Irishman (2019) Three hours of "Godfather" wannabe. Acting good as is scenery but the story is DOA.‐ jackiekcooper.com

3/10 No Score Yet Red Handed (2019) Somewhere there was the germ of a good idea, but when they tried to make a movie out of it - it failed.‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 98% The Farewell (2019) I kept waiting for something to happen in the plot of the movie - and then it was over. Oh yes, Awkwafina was very good.‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 82% The Report (2019) A well acted but overall dry movie. Adam Driver scores again in creating a believable character in a hard to believe film.‐ jackiekcooper.com

8/10 74% Richard Jewell (2019) Eastwood is back in top form. Paul Walter Hauser is the perfect blending of actor and role.‐ jackiekcooper.com
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2019
6/10 82% Queen & Slim (2019) A truly disturbing movie which showcases the amazing talent of Daniel Kaluuya. Some flaws along the way but overall a good movie.‐ jackiekcooper.com
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2019
6/10 97% Knives Out (2019) Most of the actors are just gussied up in cameo roles and the script is not half as clever as it thinks it is. Still you have highly watchable performances by Ana De Armas and Chris Evans.‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 51% 21 Bridges (2019) Just your ordinary crime thriller - but hey it has Chadwick Boseman!‐ jackiekcooper.com

7/10 95% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) Sorry to say but Mr. Rogers always annoyed me a little. Hanks is so good at portraying Rogers that he annoyed me too. Otherwise the movie is fine.‐ jackiekcooper.com

9/10 77% Frozen II (2019) Disney works its magic again with a sequel that outperforms the original. The actors, the animation, and especially the songs - it is all amazing. I'm just waiting to hear 4 year olds break into "Into the Unknown"!!!!!‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 100% Mickey and the Bear (2019) Camila Morrone is a real find (cross between Ava Gardner and Ashley Judd) and James Badge Dale adds real balance. The movie is surprisingly impressive.‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 No Score Yet Night Sweats (2019) Run of the mill movie about deadly disease, but there is a nice twist to it all.‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 52% Charlie's Angels (2019) There is no camaraderie, no charisma, no excitement in this band of women. Bring back Lucy, Drew and Cameron. They are badly needed.‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 64% The Good Liar (2019) Mirren and McKellen are always enjoyably watchable and they elevate a too twisty by half script.‐ jackiekcooper.com

10/10 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) This is the kind of movie they made when Paul Newman and Steve McQueen were at their peak. Bale and Damon prove even in today's Hollywood talent is talent and can't be denied. This is just a wonderful movie in too many ways to name.‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 57% Frankie (2019) Great cast (Isabelle Huppert, Brendan Gleeson, Marisa Tomei equals a not so great movie. Lot of talent caught in a pointless story.‐ jackiekcooper.com

7/10 66% Danger Close (2019) Travis Fimmel leads a fresh cast of actors in this story of Australia/New Zealand fighters in Vietnam. Full of heroics with a personal touch.‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 93% Anya (2019) A quirky movie full of surprises. Good cast and Motell Gyn Foster is outstanding as the "evolutionary geneticist." Worth looking up.‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 44% Midway (2019) Good historical recounting, and solid special effects highlight this movie. Where it fails is in giving audiences a personal story to latch onto.‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 46% Last Christmas (2019) A "Notting Hill" "Love Actually" Sixth Sense" smashup that makes everything seem borrowed from a better film.‐ jackiekcooper.com

7/10 77% Doctor Sleep (2019) A well made, enjoyable film - which doesn't always happen with a Stephen King book. Plus Rebecca Ferguson is terrific.‐ jackiekcooper.com

4/10 No Score Yet Portal (2019) Another "let's go to a murder victim's house and see if there are any ghosts there" movie. Been there, done that - but send the t-shirt.‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 No Score Yet The Wrong Todd (2018) It all comes across as "c'mon gang, let's make a movie". Actually the acting is competent and the script is quirky. With a little more money and effort it could have been something strikingly different.‐ jackiekcooper.com

7/10 60% Mrs. Lowry & Son (2019) Vanessa Redgrave and Timothy Spall give a master class in acting. The whole movie is a character study but what a study it is in the hands of these terrific thespians.‐ jackiekcooper.com
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2019
7/10 62% Motherless Brooklyn (2019) An interesting crime drama that is elevated by the talent of its cast - particularly lead actor/writer/director Edward Norton. He is fascinating to watch as an investigator with Tourettes.‐ jackiekcooper.com

6/10 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Same old same old on the plot but the presence of Hamilton and Schwarzenegger make it a movie worth seeing.‐ jackiekcooper.com
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2019
7/10 73% Harriet (2019) An overdue film about one of history's greatest heroines. Not only do we get to see Erivo's acting skills we also get to hear her wonderful voice. Chances are Tubman's story was more dramatic than shown but it is still an educating and entertaining film.‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 96% Love, Antosha (2019) Anton Yelchin was a talented actor who never had a real breakthrough role. He was always on the cusp of breaking through but fate robbed him of that chance. This film portrays all that but never quite draws the audience into the story.‐ jackiekcooper.com

5/10 20% Entangled (2019) This film has enough atmosphere for two movies. The sight and sound of the story are sensually presented. But when it is all over you find there was no real substance to any of it.‐ jackiekcooper.com
