Review: ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Starring Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson

Posted: February 9, 2018 at 8:42 am   /   Movie Reviews

Fifty Shades Freed is the third and final installment to a franchise that began as Twilight fan-fiction but later went on to become a sensation that swept the nation. Though it rarely comes up in conversation, I often find it rare that I speak with a lady who hasn’t read the books or seen the […]

Phantom Thread is the story of a 1950’s dress-maker named Reynolds Woodcock, portrayed brilliantly (as always) by Daniel Day-Lewis. This is Day-Lewis’ second collaboration with director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will be Blood) and reportedly his final role before retirement. There were rumors of him wanting to retire before he took on this film, but […]

After tackling planes in 2015’s Non-Stop, Liam Neeson is back to tackle trains in the latest entry to his action movie repertoire with The Commuter, and it’s more or less the same movie.

Film Review: ‘Paddington 2’ Starring Ben Wishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Sally Hawkins

Posted: January 12, 2018 at 8:29 am   /   Movie Reviews

What a delightful film. Growing up, I can’t say I recall having read any of Michael Bond’s A Bear Called Paddington books, but I can’t imagine they’re any less charming than the two films that have been adapted from them. I watched 2015’s Paddington just before Paddington 2 and was enamored by its charm and […]

Film Review: ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ starting Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson

Posted: December 22, 2017 at 10:12 am   /   Movie Reviews

Star Wars. Back to the Future. Lord of the Rings. Pitch Perfect? Pitch, please. Pitch Perfect is a movie that never needed a sequel, let alone two. It was one of those movies that snuck into my life and surprised me. When I saw it being advertised as coming to HBO some time in 2013, […]

The Force Awakens was a colossal success for Disney/LucasFilm in 2015. It opened to record-shattering numbers and currently sits as the highest grossing movie domestically of all time at $936million (third worldwide at a little over $2billion).
