Review: ‘Baywatch’ Starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Zac Efron

Posted: May 26, 2017 at 9:08 am   /   Movie Reviews

Not even The Rock himself can save Baywatch from downing. Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron try their best to keep the film afloat, but ultimately, the film is done in by the ridiculous plot and shallow script. Going into the film, it was pretty clear that Baywatch was trying to capture the same success of […]

Review: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Starring Brenton Thwaites, Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem

Posted: May 25, 2017 at 6:29 pm   /   Movie Reviews

If the fifth installment of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ series has proven anything, it’s that this dead franchise should tell no more tales. It all should have ended with At World’s End. Back in 2007, the third Pirates movie brought each of its central storylines to a seeming conclusion: multicultural pirates reclaimed the seas […]

You have been warned.  There’s a scene in the original Alien that’s always stuck in my head. Armed with a flamethrower, Dallas is crawling through the airducts of the Nostromo, trying […]

Review: ‘Chuck’ Starring Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman

Posted: May 19, 2017 at 10:23 am   /   Movie Reviews

It would be a mistake to classify Chuck as a sports movie. Sure, there is a fight or two, but boxing is hardly the focus here. Rather, the “true life story” documents the rise and fall of a man graced with a fleeting dose of fame but unable to resist the allure of its vices. […]

Review: ‘Alien: Covenant’ Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride

Posted: May 18, 2017 at 6:48 pm   /   Movie Reviews

One of the films I’ve been looking forward to for the last few months is Alien: Covenant. I was not disappointed, but I wasn’t totally pleased either. While the trailer of the film leads the viewer to believe that Ridley Scott’s latest is an all out scare/gore-fest, it’s really not. In fact, the audience doesn’t […]

Review: ‘Everything, Everything’ Starring Amandla Stenberg, Nick Robinson

Everything, Everything is based on a young adult book of the same name and is a story about a teenage girl named Maddy Whittier (Amandla Stenberg) who is confined to her home due to a rare illness and has longed for but never stepped a foot outdoors. A short while after a few expository scenes, […]

Review: ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul’ Starring Jason Ian Drucker, Tom Everett Scott, Alicia Silverstone

Posted: May 18, 2017 at 6:44 pm   /   Movie Reviews

If this movie did anything for me, it was that it reignited my childhood crush on Alicia Silverstone. Before you say anything, yes – I’m well aware I wasn’t within the target demographic of this film. However, I do still expect children’s movies to be at least somewhat intelligent and enjoyable for the adults who […]

Review: Guy Richie’s ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ Is a Boring Mess

Posted: May 12, 2017 at 4:31 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Hopefully this franchise goes back to the nothingness from whence it came. I never thought I would say that I longed for the 2004 film King Arthur, starring Clive Owen and Keira Knightley. Yet that’s exactly how I felt as I tried to stay awake through the boring, unfunny, and just plain joyless King Arthur […]

Review: Another Take on ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

Posted: May 11, 2017 at 1:57 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Let me start by saying that 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy instantly became my favorite film in the MCU upon my initial viewing. Out of all of the FIFTEEN MCU feature-length films, the original Guardians is easily the one I’ve seen and love the most. There’s something about the obscurity and goofiness of the movie […]

Review: ‘Snatched’ Starring Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn, Joan Cusack

Posted: May 11, 2017 at 9:00 am   /   Movie Reviews

Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn deserved so much better. One would think that pairing up the actress from one of last years best comedies, and one of Hollywood’s most beloved blondes, would be a recipe for success. Yet Snatched is anything but tasty. While there are much worse comedies out at the moment, Snatched just […]
