Movie review: ‘Avengers: Endgame’

With its themes of sacrifice and failure, “Avengers: Endgame” offers much for Christian viewers to think about.

Movie review: ‘Glass’

“Glass” is well made and well acted, but Christian viewers should be careful not to buy into its thesis that truth is found in self-actualization.

Movie review: ‘Aquaman’

With “Aquaman,” director James Wan avoids the dreary look of previous DC films, providing a bright, vibrant color palette and a deliberately lighthearted and goofy tone reminiscent of 1980s Saturday-morning cartoons.

Movie review: ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” the second Harry Potter prequel in the Fantastic Beasts series, attempts but ultimately fails to conjure the magic of the original Harry Potter series.

Movie review: ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” delivers audiences an eye-popping film experience while affirming marriage and family without resorting to clichés.

Movie review: ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’

The new Jurassic film is a Grade-A summer blockbuster with its special effects, but its shallow storyline makes it a B-movie “creature feature.”

Movie review: ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

The latest entry in the Star Wars universe works best if the audience avoids thinking too much and simply enjoys it for what it is: a straightforward, double-crossing heist film that introduces some beloved characters in a safe and appealing way.

Movie review: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, “Avengers: Infinity War” is a gift to MARVEL fans, honoring previous films in the franchise while bringing its own contributions to the saga.

Movie review: ‘A Wrinkle in Time’

For a film about love and bravery, “A Wrinkle in Time” turns out to neither love its source material nor demonstrate courage in its execution.

Movie review: ‘Black Panther’

The new film from director Ryan Coogler picks up the story of Black Panther where 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War” left off.

Movie review: ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Director/screenwriter Rian Johnson has made a perfectly good film that some viewers will love but others may find frustrating because of the unexpected plot.

Movie review: ‘The Star’

Here’s a clean family film that doesn’t disrespect Christianity and provides a positive movie-going experience for young children.

Movie review: ‘Blade Runner 2049’

Similar to the original, but “darker” and “grimmer,” “Blade Runner 2049” ponders what it means to be human.

Movie review: ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’

“While not bright and cheerful, ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ is entertaining and interesting, well-made, with a lot of heart,” writes reviewer Ted Giese.

Movie review: ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

The new film is “fun and entertaining” and “well worth a watch for Spider-Man fans,” writes reviewer Ted Giese.

Movie review: ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’

Director Gareth Edwards has made a film that looks and feels like “Star Wars,” but may be too intense for young children.
