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 […]

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 […]

Movie Review: ‘The Conjuring 2’ Starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson

Posted: June 10, 2016 at 6:47 am   /   Movie Reviews

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 […]

Movie Review: ‘Keanu’ Starring Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key

Posted: April 28, 2016 at 6:59 pm   /   Movie Reviews

After over a decade of killing it in TV sketch comedy, Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key are finally on the big screen together in their first feature film. In Keanu, the comedy duo delivers almost exactly what you’d expect from a bit on their brilliant Comedy Central show, Key and Peele. The movie picks up […]

Movie Review: ‘Kilo Two Bravo’ Will Blow You Away

Posted: March 31, 2016 at 10:12 am   /   Movie Reviews

Not since Saving Private Ryan have I seen a fact-based war movie more difficult to watch. Kilo Two Bravo is one of those rare films, where the audience feels every uncomfortable move that the characters make. Directed by Paul Katis, KTB tells the horrifying story of a squad of British paratroopers who unknowingly stumble into […]

Movie Review: ‘Deadpool’ Starring Ryan Reynolds, T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin

Posted: February 12, 2016 at 9:41 am   /   Movie Reviews

You’ve watched the trailers. You’ve seen the billboards. You downloaded the leaked footage. You read the tweets. You listened to the interviews. By now, if you haven’t heard there is a Deadpool movie coming out, I’m not sure how you are reading an online review (unless your grandma printed it out at the library and […]
