Posted: October 11, 2018 at 10:49 pm   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

The Hate U Give is one of those films that will probably be shown in schools in the near future. If not, it should be. It’s a powerful tale of one young woman’s struggle within today’s fractured nation. The film is an adaptation of Angie Thomas’s best-selling 2017 novel of the same name. Amandla Stenberg […]

Movie Review: Bad Times at The El Royale starring Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Jon Hamm

Posted: October 11, 2018 at 6:23 pm   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

I really wanted to like this film. In fact, walking out of Bad Times at The El Royale, I was downright angry I didn’t like the film.

Whenever an actor or mainstream star ventures into the stand-up comedy world, the move is always met with skepticism, and Jeremy Piven’s move into the comedy world is no different. I’m very happy to report that the 3-time Emmy Winner and Golden Globe winner not only surprised me but can hold his own on the […]

Last summer, in an unprecedented move, Sony Pictures teamed up with the already massively successful Disney/Marvel in a collaboration to create what I consider to be the best Spider-Man film to date – Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Some filmmakers have even been creatively successful with remakes of remakes (i.e. The Magnificent Seven, Antoine Fuqua’s 2016 update of The Magnificent Seven, Jim Sturges’ […]
