Movie Review: ‘Hercules’ Starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Posted: July 25, 2014 at 6:45 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Dwayne Johnson is the hottest action star in Hollywood, and with good reason. His good looks, out of this works physique, and his captivating personality has made him a hot commodity in Hollywood. All those attributes are on display in the Summer action fare Hercules. The Brett Ratner directed film may not please mythological purists, […]

Movie Review: ‘Lucy’ Starring Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman

Posted: July 25, 2014 at 6:40 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Don’t be fooled by the trailer for Lucy, the latest film from director Luc Besson. It looks like a sci­fi, action thriller; yet what it really is, is a mean-­spirited, unexciting train wreck. Scarlett Johansson stars as Lucy. One of my big problems with the film is that we are introduced to Lucy at the […]

Movie Review: ‘Dawn of The Planet of The Apes’ Starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman

Posted: July 11, 2014 at 6:34 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

As far as reboots of well established franchises go, Rise of the Planet of the Apes certainly ranked among the ones that was (or is, if you still haven’t seen it) very well worth your time. I certainly wish more sequels would turn out like this one. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes leads off […]

Movie Review: ‘Tammy’ Starring Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney

Posted: July 2, 2014 at 8:20 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

It seems like you either love or hate Melissa McCarthy. Her latest film, Tammy, will do nothing to change that. Tammy is a movie that looks like it is nothing special, just more of McCarthy’s raunchy act that she has been cashing in on since Bridesmaids. In reality, Tammy is a heartfelt, feel good comedy, […]

It was only a matter of time before the 4-time Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys became a motion picture.

Movie Review: ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton

Posted: June 6, 2014 at 6:57 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

“Groundhog Independence Day” Time travel movies have always fascinated me. What if you could go back in time, change the past and right the wrongs? What if you could forever alter history for the better? The possibilities are endless. Then there are movies like Groundhog Day, one of the all-time great comedies. While not traditional […]

Movie Review: ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender

Based on Marvel’s “The Uncanny X-Men” issues #141-142, Days of Future Past is a time travel story that brings together the X-Men of old and new. The film bridges the gap between Bryan Singer’s original X-Men and X-2, and Matthew Vaughn’s “origin” story First Class. Throughout all of the X films, as well as the […]

Movie Review: ‘Chef’ Starring Jon Favreau, Sofia Vergara, Robert Downey, Jr.

Posted: May 23, 2014 at 6:13 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Jon Favreau is used to putting out huge, summer action flicks, like Iron Man 1 and 2, as well as the dud Cowboys and Aliens, but this summer he’s not blowing up anything, he’s cooking. Chef is Favreau’s latest project, and a welcomed departure from summer action flicks. Favreau directed, wrote, and stars in this […]

Movie Review: ‘Godzilla’ Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston

Posted: May 15, 2014 at 10:11 pm   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

“Holy crap, they made a Godzilla movie!” That brilliant and insightful cinematic commentary came from yours truly, roughly during the last third of director Gareth Edwards’ (Monsters) summer reboot of filmdom’s favorite green-skinned gargantuan, Godzilla. I couldn’t resist – as an avowed monster-lover dating all the way back to the days of “Creature Features” on […]

Movie Review: ‘Neighbors’ Starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne

Posted: May 9, 2014 at 5:31 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

We’ve all had neighbors we didn’t like at one time or another. Hell, I went to war with a few of my neighbors when I used to live in my wife’s condo. In Seth Rogen’s new film, Neighbors, he and Zac Efron are perfectly cast as next-door neighbors who go all out in a battle […]
