Review: ‘Logan’ Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen

Posted: February 18, 2017 at 4:19 am   /   Movie Reviews

Finally. After seventeen years and eight X-Men films (nine, if you include Deadpool), the fans of the franchise finally get the Wolverine film they deserve – an R-rated, no holds barred, action-packed bloodbath of a film. This is James Mangold’s second straight Wolverine film, and in my opinion, the best addition to the franchise to […]

Review: ‘A Cure for Wellness’ Starring Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth

Posted: February 17, 2017 at 12:01 pm   /   Movie Reviews

In previous reviews of mine, I have pondered my feelings over a few comedies based on the question, “If I laughed, is that enough to call it good?” In the case of A Cure for Wellness, which, by genre, is not a comedy, the question I pondered for the first half its run time was […]

Review: ‘The Great Wall’ Starring Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe

Posted: February 16, 2017 at 7:00 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Avoid this wall if at all possible. Matt Damon’s latest film, The Great Wall, may have the look and feel of a Hollywood blockbuster. It cost a reported $150 million to make, but take it from me, the actor’s latest is a dud. It’s a shame the film is not exciting or interesting, as it […]

Review: ‘Fist Fight’ Starring Ice Cube, Charlie Day, Tracy Morgan

Posted: February 16, 2017 at 7:00 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Fist Fight may not be perfect, but it’s a long way from being terrible. That is the best way I can describe the new Ice Cube and Charlie Day comedy, about a pair of teachers looking to square off after one gets the other fired. Cube is his usual angry looking self, playing Ron Strickland -a […]

Review: ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Starring Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Hugh Dancy

Posted: February 9, 2017 at 6:15 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Have you ever gone into a movie, hoping against all odds that it’d be a great movie, and you get completely and pleasantly surprised? Well that didn’t happen with 50 Shades Darker. I should preface this by saying that I never saw the first film, nor did I read the books that the films are […]

Review: ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ Starring Keanu Reeves, Common, Laurence Fishburne

Posted: February 9, 2017 at 2:43 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Guns. Knives. More guns. And a pencil. If there’s one thing the original John Wick taught us, it’s that violence really can solve everything. Well, that and don’t ever kill another man’s dog (although in hindsight, that should already be obvious). Although it received very little fanfare ahead of its release, the original film, released in 2014, became […]

Review: ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ Starring Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson

Posted: February 9, 2017 at 9:49 am   /   Movie Reviews

In February of 2014, the first full-length feature LEGO movie took the world by storm. The film made an incredible $469 million worldwide on a budget of only $60 million. The film solidified two absolutes. One, the directors of the film (Chris Miller and Phil Lord) were not one hit wonders with their brilliant adaptation […]

Film Review: ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna

Posted: December 16, 2016 at 1:02 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews, Reviews

It’s not Star Wars. Right from the get-go, with the opening shots, Rogue One does its best to distinguish itself from the official trilogy films, Episode I-VII. And in a sense, it’s true. There’s no opening crawl, and the beloved theme is conspicuously absent. Furthermore, this is the first film in which a Skywalker doesn’t […]

Hacksaw Ridge Review

Posted: November 8, 2016 at 10:44 am   /   Film, Local, 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   /   Local, 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 […]
