Movie Review: ‘Little’ Starring Regina Hall, Issa Rae, Marsai Martin

Posted: April 12, 2019 at 8:41 am   /   Movie Reviews

You ever just know something’s about to happen, but you can’t help but watch? Like a friend who makes terrible dating decisions and is about to make another one. Or a Vikings fan getting ready to watch their kicker attempt a game-winning kick (sorry, Andrew). I didn’t get a great feeling about Little when I […]

Movie Review: ‘Shazam!’ Starring Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer

I have a confession to make. I’m a little burned out on superhero movies. Now, hear me out. It’s not that I don’t enjoy them. They’re still pretty entertaining, and more often than not, I’ll still go to a theater to see them before they come out on Blu Ray. But I no longer really […]

Movie Review: ‘How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ Starring Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett

Heading to the theater to see the screening of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, two things raced through my mind: Could the movie provide a satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy? and Am I going to die in this pending ice storm that’s supposed to hit tonight? Upon reflection, I can safely say […]

Movie Review: ‘The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part’

Posted: February 8, 2019 at 8:00 am   /   Movie Reviews

I’m a Lego guy. As I wrote about in my review of The Lego Movie, I spent countless hours playing with Legos as I was growing up. Building, destroying, re-building, I’m not ashamed to admit that if I come across a kit nowadays that I like, I have no reservations about buying it and putting […]

Movie Review: ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’

It was supposed to be the war to end all wars, one directly responsible for the loss of over 16 million lives (and indirectly responsible for at least 50 million more). Yet today, it’s all but a forgotten footnote. The last surviving veterans of the war passed away in 2011 and 2012, and its footprint […]

Movie Review: ‘Bumblebee’ Starring Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Angela Bassett,

One of the earliest Christmases I can remember, I remember asking for as many Transformers as I could get. I was enamored with the concept of Robots in Disguise and thought they were the greatest thing since macaroni and cheese. When Christmas finally came, I wasn’t disappointed. I spent hours in my basement recreating battles, […]

Movie Review: ‘Mortal Engines’ Starring Hugo Weaving, Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan

Posted: December 14, 2018 at 8:35 am   /   Movie Reviews

Usually, when you see a movie trailer, you can tell pretty easily whether you’ll go into the movie optimistic and excited, or cautious and bracing for the worst. Admittedly, when I saw the early trailers for Mortal Engines, I was leaning towards the latter. Still, there’s always that one movie that surprises you. Despite all […]

Movie Review: ‘Green Book’ Starring Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

Posted: November 21, 2018 at 7:13 am   /   Movie Reviews

It isn’t very tough to figure out that we currently live in an extremely divided country right now. Oh, sure, we call ourselves the United States, and in times of emergency, we band together. But any given day, you’ll read headline after headline about political parties going after each other, building walls, and racial tensions. […]

Movie Review: ‘Overlord’ Starring Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Mathilde Ollivier

Zombie Nazis. That is all. [Edit] Okay, so apparently, according to my editor, I can’t just write a five-word review. I’m sorry, I thought this was America. [Edit 2] And apparently my paycheck’s getting docked for this one. Anyways, Overlord. I remember hearing the rumors starting late last year/early this year that JJ Abrams was […]

Movie Review: ‘Viper Club’ Starring Susan Sarandon, Matt Bomer, Lola Kirke

Posted: November 2, 2018 at 7:35 am   /   Movie Reviews

Back in 2000, when Russell Crowe was at his most marketable, he co-starred with Meg Ryan in an action-drama called Proof of Life. It was a fairly straightforward movie, but the premise was relatively unique. Meg’s husband (David Morse) was kidnapped by terrorists, who demanded a monstrous ransom for his release. Crowe played a negotiator […]
