Review: ‘The Mummy’ Starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis

by Steve Kelley / Published: June 9, 2017 at 7:27 am   /   Movie Reviews

Even when it tries to be its own film, the movie is essentially a barrage of overdone jump scares with little suspense. Don’t worry, though, there’s a plethora of them, because even though Ahmanet and her undead minions walk and crawl at a slow pace in one scene, they’re always able to catch up to […]

Sometimes, the fairy tale doesn’t work out. Everyone who’s dated knows the drill. You meet someone, you fall in love, and everything’s perfect. As time goes on, though, you wear on each other, and the spark slowly fades to the point that you’re nothing more than tax-saving roommates. And that’s the catch of The Lovers. […]

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

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

by Steve Kelley / Published: March 3, 2017 at 7:32 am   /   Movie Reviews

This is what we wanted, isn’t it? retractable adamantium claws and impossibly fast healing capabilities. Tasked with taking her to North Dakota, where a mutant sanctuary called Eden is believed to exist, Logan packs her and Charles up for the trek north. I’d be in remiss to not give the “should be obvious, but apparently […]

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. “Ana: You have a dark and mysterious past and seem to enjoy being dominant. I don’t like that. Christian: Yeah, but I can […]

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

by Steve Kelley / Published: February 9, 2017 at 2:43 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Guns. Knives. More guns. And a pencil. And so Santino D’Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio) re-enters Wick’s world, carrying the marker Wick gave in exchange for marrying his wife and leaving his world of crime behind. Santino asks him to complete one final job, which he persuades Wick to take after some active negotiations. The rest of the supporting cast […]
