Kriss and Phenom tackle what went wrong with Fox's The Darkest Minds. The movie had potential. Yes, it's based off of a Young Adult Novel series but the entire story is basically jacked right from the pages of a X-Men comic. It could have finally given us the Fox X-Men movie we've deserved. Instead it was an uninspiring mess of a film. From changing Ruby from a dark skinned black girl to a light skinned black girl with mixed parents to just painful dialogue and nothing make sense. And that ending? Oh boy. 

Sit back as Kriss and Phenom rip this film apart with spoilers.

Imprisoned by an adult world that now fears everyone under 18, a group of teens form a resistance group to fight back and reclaim control of their future.

Phenom, Ashley and Kriss review The Spy Who Dumped Me. Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon play off of each other pretty well in this film. McKinnon is just downright funny and makes every movie better. Her scenes with Gillian Anderson are gold and worth the price of a movie ticket. 

Audrey and Morgan are best friends who unwittingly become entangled in an international conspiracy when one of the women discovers the boyfriend who dumped her was actually a spy.

Kriss, Phenom and Ashley review Disney's Christopher Robin. This film works pretty well considering it could have gone way too dark and depressing. It does a good job juggling a depressing theme and story with the fun characters of 100 Acre Wood so that it's still enjoyable for kids. 

A working-class family man, Christopher Robin, encounters his childhood friend Winnie-the-Pooh, who helps him to rediscover the joys of life.

Shanna, The Doctor and Parrish discuss Marvel's Cloak & Dagger episodes 1x06 - 1x09. 

Tandy forges a relationship with Mina Hess that brings up old hurt and new revelations about her father. Ty struggles to bring Connors to justice and redeem Billy's name. And O'Reilly is forced to choose what side of the law she's going to be on. Everything is leading up to the season finale and our heroes are stumbling back into bad habits before a (hopefully) triumphant ending.

Phenom, Ashley and Kriss review Eighth Grade. This is a great movie that is an early award season contender. This film is great not only for adults but for kids as well.

Blindspotting continues a trend we've seen this year of relevant black films set in Oakland. This is a film you're going to need to see at least twice. There are things dropped at the beginning of the film that get tied back in at the end. Like Sorry to Bother You and Get Out, Blindspotting is going to lead to some good discussions and is a film everyone should see.

Phenom & Kriss discuss the movie as well as the Q&A Phenom sat in on after the film.

For a show that so many people complain about, Teen Titans Go seems to keep winning. The cartoon does fine and now, they've gone big time and are hitting theaters. Does it work? Of course it does. Find out what's so great about Teen Titans Go To The Movies and ask yourself why DC Animation understands these comic book characters but their live action side struggles.

The Equalizer 2 is a perfect example of how Antoine Fuqua is king of the "B Movie". This isn't a knock against him as there need to be more quality B movie action films. To me a B Movie is a film that is good enough to keep your attention for 1 or 2 viewings but you eventually forget about it. While you watch it, you enjoy it but soon after, you've forgotten it. That explains The Equalizer 2. It knows that audiences are just here to see Denzel kicking ass and that as long as they get that, they won't care about the weak main story or uninteresting side plots. 

I'll take more Equalizer 2 movies over things like The Commuter and ever other Liam Neeson film where he phones it in for 99.9% of the film.

Kriss, Phenom and Shanna review Boots Riley's Sorry to Bother You. This film is getting great reviews and for good reason. There is so much commentary and little messages sprinkled throughout this film. From the obvious in your face messages of corporate greed and the lack of worker rights to the smaller visual nods and messages in the background. Sorry to Bother You packs in a lot unpack and you're going to want to see it multiple times to get it all in. The film progressively gets weirder and weirder all the way up to the end but it feels natural because recent real life events have shown us how easy the "new normal" can become.

We attempt to tackle some of the topics and themes we saw in this film but there's so much more. Run, do not walk to see this film.

Oh and Tessa Thompson is a Goddess and we will watch anything she's in.

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe. Directed by Boots Riley and starring stars Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Danny Glover, Steven Yeun and Armie Hammer

Phenom and Kriss are back to review the latest try hard movie from Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Skyscraper. Phenom (wrongly) blames Kriss for having to see and review this movie which is utterly stupid and ridiculous. The Rock has one leg in the film and plays a non-bad ass, bad ass. It's just another paint by number dumb action film starring The Rock that isn't looking to make money domestically but rather capitalize on his fame in China.

If you wanted to see this film you were already going to see it no matter what the reviews said. And if you thought the whole concept was dumb and not worth your time then...you were right.

A father goes to great lengths to save his family from a burning skyscraper.
