Review: ‘Life’ Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds

Posted: March 23, 2017 at 5:05 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Take a bit of Alien and a splash of Gravity and what do you get? The outcome is Life, the new space-thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds. Director Daniel Espinosa doesn’t change the game with Life, but the film is effective enough to keep your attention for just over 100 minutes. It tells the story […]

Review: Saban’s ‘Power Rangers’ (2017) Starring Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Banks

Posted: March 23, 2017 at 5:00 pm   /   Movie Reviews

The Power Rangers were once a big part of my life growing up. In a house of three boys in the ’90s, it was pretty much a given. While I have since fallen out of the world, it’s impossible to ignore that the Power Rangers franchise has maintained a massive fan base through several seasons […]

Every year since 2014’s Maleficent, Disney has released a live action re-imagining of one of their famous animated features.

Ten Movies ’90s Kids Love… But Do They Hold Up?

Posted: March 16, 2017 at 9:00 am   /   Movie Reviews, Opinion

The Land Before Time (1988) Years before he used prehistoric creatures to frighten us, Steven Spielberg, along with his co-executive producer George Lucas and director Don Bluth, used them to warm our hearts. This animated family adventure tells the story of a group of young, lost dinosaurs of varying species that must evade “earth shakes,” […]

Review: ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly

Posted: March 10, 2017 at 9:00 am   /   Movie Reviews

Why do we need another King Kong movie? Including two same-title remakes (one in 1976 and Peter Jackson’s acclaimed 2005 update) the larger-than-life primate has officially bared the screen in seven films since first making his epic maiden voyage in 1933. So, why go for an eighth try? The answer coming from Warner Bros’ mouths […]

Review: ‘The Sense of an Ending’ Starring Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Billy Howle, Freya Mavor

Posted: March 10, 2017 at 8:05 am   /   Movie Reviews

Julian Barnes’ short, but well-received 2011 novel, The Sense of an Ending, had finally received the big screen treatment. Having never read the book, but being told what it’s about, the big screen version may fail to live up to the expectations of some readers. The film starts testing the patience of movie-goers immediately as Tony Webster, played […]

Review: Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen

Posted: March 10, 2017 at 6:00 am   /   Movie Reviews

I have a confession to make. I didn’t really watch Disney films as a child. Okay, that isn’t completely accurate. Dumbo was one of my favorite movies growing up, and when I was 9, my sister dragged me to the theaters to watch The Lion King for her birthday. Beyond that, though, I never watched […]

Review: LOGAN Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen

Posted: March 3, 2017 at 7:32 am   /   Movie Reviews

This is what we wanted, isn’t it? A no-holds-barred, unfiltered look into the world of the X-Men, as opposed to the toned-down PG-13 version offered by the previous films in the series? A chance to see Wolverine shine in his full, unadulterated glory? Hell yes. What wouldn’t have been possible were it not for the […]

Review: ‘Before I Fall’ Starring Zoey Deutch, Halston Sage, Cynthy Wu

Posted: March 2, 2017 at 6:59 am   /   Movie Reviews

Have you ever thought of two of your favorite movies and wondered what it would be like to combine them into one? Before I Fall would be the result of the equation if you combined the 1993 Bill Murray classic Groundhog Day and Tina Fey’s 2004 gem Mean Girls. Unfortunately this film doesn’t deserve to […]
