Movie Reviews

The heart of Lyles Movie Files is the movie review section. Here’s where you can find my thoughts on the hundreds of films I’ve reviewed. Reviews are typically added every Friday although as I go through my backlog of movies in my collection some may get added more frequently. Movies are arranged so you can track them by title and by year of release.

  • Hello

    I was wondering if you would be interested in reviewing our film, Durant’s Never Closes, starring Tom Sizemore and Peter Bogdanovich. The film starts playing in select cities this month.

    We feel this is no ordinary Sizemore film and is a reminder of how good he was at the height of his career.

    Here is the trailer for the film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXZQBsHevkg

    After playing select cities, the film will be released on VOD this summer.

    Please let us know if you would like a digital screener of the film.

  • Travis
    That sounds good. I’ll check it out. You can reach me on gmail.

  • Trina

    Are you going to review the movie Central Intelligence in June? Have you seen the trailer? If so, do you think it’ll be one of those Redbox nights or a must see?

  • Jeffrey Lyles

    I’m planning to. I’m thinking Redbox. It looks too similar to Ride Along with The Rock playing a happier version of Ice Cube’s character.
