Hacksaw Ridge Review

Posted: November 8, 2016 at 10:44 am   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

We all know that Mel Gibson has his demons, as his battle with alcoholism took center stage several years ago. In “Hacksaw Ridge,” Gibson’s first film in ten years, the director takes the violence of war to the extreme. It’s almost as if the director has an addiction with violence in the film. In war […]

Every so often in Hollywood a brand new talent emerges and proves to have real staying power. Think of the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Lupita Nyong’o. Five years ago even an avid film fan might not have known all those names, or at least might not have been familiar with the respective […]

Film Review: “The BFG” Starring Mark Rylance and Ruby Barnhill

Posted: July 1, 2016 at 1:01 am   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

If you ask the question “What is the BFG?” to two different generations, there’s a good chance you’re going to get two very different responses. Growing up in the 90’s as a computer gamer, my first reaction when I heard the title of the movie harkened back to my days of playing DOOM and Quake […]

Film Review: ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Starring Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, and Jessie Usher

Posted: June 25, 2016 at 10:00 am   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

Everyone’s got their share of guilty pleasures. Things that we know aren’t good (or good for us), yet we refuse to let go of. I don’t think it’s a bad thing, really, unless your guilty pleasure is like murder or something. When I was 12, a summer blockbuster named Independence Day rolled out in theaters […]

Movie Review: ‘Central Intelligence’ Starring Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson

Posted: June 17, 2016 at 7:42 am   /   Movie Reviews

I must admit that my expectations were low for the new buddy-cop movie Central Intelligence. Despite starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, the trailer just seemed kind of dull. As probably one of the biggest fans of Dwayne Johnson on the planet, and a pretty huge Kevin Hart fan, I’m happy to report that Central […]

Just when it looked like sequels were going to scare everyone away from the movie theater, along comes The Conjuring 2 – and it literally scared some out of the theater. James Wan’s latest effort is not just a great scariest, it’s a great piece of acting, as Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga have great […]

Movie Review: ‘Warcraft’ Starring Travis Fimmel and Paula Patton

Posted: June 10, 2016 at 12:04 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews, Reviews

It’s no secret that movies based on video/computer games have never fared too well. Just glancing through the list of movies, the various Rotten Tomatoes scores read more like a senior class’s ACT scores than a rating. The mere mention of the name Uwe Boll makes film critics and video game players alike cringe in […]

Movie Review: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac

Posted: May 27, 2016 at 7:44 am   /   Movie Reviews

It’s hard to believe that we are now nine films into the X-Men franchise, which kicked off in 2000 with X-Men and was the catalyst for the “serious” superhero films we know today. Although Blade came out two years earlier, it never had quite the commercial success of the original X movie – which brought […]
