Review: Christopher Nolan’s DUNKIRK

Posted: July 21, 2017 at 8:27 am   /   Movie Reviews

There is plenty to admire about the film, particularly on its technical level. Shot on 70mm film, the gorgeous cinematography captures highly realistic battle sequences by sea, air and land. The special effects department takes a cue from Mad Max: Fury Road, using practical effects as often as possible, which opens the imagination to how some […]

Review: ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ Starring Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne

Posted: July 21, 2017 at 7:49 am   /   Movie Reviews

When the first trailer dropped for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, I was captivated by the imagery – and believed this film could very well be quite the spectacle upon its release in July. Written and directed by Luc Besson (the visionary behind the cult classic film The Fifth Element), my interest […]

The first great film of 2017 has arrived. Okja is everything a movie should be. The film will make you laugh, cry, and think. For those of you who don’t know about Okja, it’s a new film from Netflix. To think that Netflix could have a film that could contend for an Oscar for Best […]

Review: ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr, Marisa Tomei

Posted: July 4, 2017 at 7:06 pm   /   Film, Movie Reviews

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the sixth feature-length film for the titular hero and stars Tom Holland this time around as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. This is the second reboot by Sony since Raimi’s trilogy in the early 2000s and had a lot of ground to make up after the less-than-stellar Amazing Spider-Man films in the early 2010s. Fans […]

Review: ‘Despicable Me 3’ Starring Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker

Posted: June 30, 2017 at 9:05 am   /   Movie Reviews

2010’s Despicable Me surprised a lot of people when it introduced the evil, yet lovable, villain Gru (Steve Carell) to the world. It had a heartwarming story as we watched Gru transform from villainy to a loving father to three adorable girls who taught him how to love. Come 2013 when they decided to release […]

Lee is down in his luck; he’s divorced, has no relationship with his daughter, can’t seem to land any respectable acting gigs, […]

Review: ‘Baby Driver’ Starring Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm

Posted: June 28, 2017 at 5:18 am   /   Movie Reviews

Following is an uncut title sequence in which Baby is strolling down the street, dancing to the music playing in his ears. His surroundings and the actions of him and others play out to the tune of the music and it’s delightful (and even includes a few nods to some of Wright’s previous films). Again, […]

Review: TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT – The Good, The Sad and the Rusty

Posted: June 21, 2017 at 1:05 pm   /   Movie Reviews

The fifth installment in the Transformers franchise is more terrible than meets the eye. As I think back on the latest Michael Bay robot slug-fest, I can’t help to ponder who exactly these movies are catering to. Judging by the box office numbers, everyone sees them. But why can’t they be good? They have a […]

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

Posted: 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 […]
