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: 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 […]

The Promise, directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Terry George, follows an Armenian medical student during the the fall of the Ottoman Empire during World War I.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
