Movie Review: ‘Midway,’ Starring Mandy Moore, Woody Harrelson

Posted: November 8, 2019 at 8:29 am   /   Movie Reviews

The brave men and women who fought in the battle of Midway, deserved so much better than this run-of-the-mill, cookie-cutter, just plain boring Roland Emmerich film. ‘Midway’ is Emmerich’s new war opus, which while retelling the story of World War II’s most decisive battle, seems to take its facts and information straight from a Wikipedia […]

Movie Review: ‘Motherless Brooklyn’ Starring Edward Norton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alec Baldwin

Posted: November 1, 2019 at 9:17 am   /   Movie Reviews

People say they love a good detective story. The tale of the fedora-clad loner chasing after the unknown perpetrator of the supposed crime of the century in the seedy underbelly of a well-known urban setting. It is probably set in the ‘40s or ‘50s, too. The thing is, anybody can try their hand at the […]

Movie Review: MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL Starring Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Michelle Pfeiffer

Posted: October 18, 2019 at 8:28 am   /   Movie Reviews

I think it’s safe to say that as soon as they saw how much money the original Maleficent raked in, Disney was ready to rubberstamp a sequel. Pulling in over $750 million in 2014, it was a smash hit and audiences seemed to enjoy the more sympathetic take on the typically-reviled antagonist of Sleeping Beauty.  […]

Movie Review: ‘Gemini Man,’ Starring Will Smith

Posted: October 10, 2019 at 5:15 pm   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

Will Smith’s new flick ‘Gemini Man’ has everything needed for an effective action movie;  a believable leading man, a great director, a formulaic plot, and big fight scenes. The only problem is ‘Gemini Man’ just isn’t very good. Director Ang Lee, known for his much superior ‘Brokeback Mountain,’ relies on new movie technology and hopes […]

Review by Josie Grillas Downton Abbey is a sumptuous period film that is an homage to the fans and the television series.  From the first stirring chords of its iconic theme song, viewers are immediately drawn back into the lives of the Crawley family and their servants.  The film picks up about a year and a […]

Movie Review: AD ASTRA Starring Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga

Posted: September 20, 2019 at 8:50 am   /   Movie Reviews

Space movies enthrall me. Whether they’re based on science or entirely science-fiction, a good space film can really hit the right chords with me, and we’ve had an influx of really good ones in the past several years. Gravity, Interstellar, and The Martian quickly come to mind when I think about the quiet isolation and […]

Movie Review: 3 From Hell, Starring; Bill Moseley, Sheri Moon Zombie, Richard Brake

Posted: September 18, 2019 at 4:43 pm   /   DVD/Blu-Ray Reviews, Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

First off, “3 From Hell,” is a very difficult movie to enjoy. Not because it’s not well made, but because it’s just that devious. Director Rob Zombie was thought to have left the Firefly Family for dead in “The Devil’s Rejects,” but alas the trio managed to survive the onslaught of bullets at the end […]
