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 […]

Movie Review: DOWNTON ABBEY (2019)

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 […]

Movie Review: IT CHAPTER 2 Starring Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader

Posted: September 6, 2019 at 1:42 pm   /   Movie Reviews

The highly anticipated follow-up to Andy Muschietti’s remake of Stephen King’s haunting tale of a clown that feasts on children (both literally and figuratively,) It: Chapter 2 hits theatres today. While the original 90’s miniseries terrified a generation and amplified coulrophobia (the irrational fear of clowns,) still to this day, as well as a providing […]

Movie Review: ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Starring Gerard Butler, Piper Perabo, Morgan Freeman

Posted: August 23, 2019 at 7:40 am   /   Movie Reviews

Remember when you were a kid and you’d play out various fantasy scenarios of you saving the world? Nevermind the various plot holes or implausible events that occurred, you were a hero, dammit, and nothing could stop you from getting that ticker-tape parade. If you can relate to that paragraph and cringe at the very […]

Before it’s release, the highly anticipated Ready or Not, directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the duo behind 2014’s Devil’s Due and the wildly popular VHS released in 2012 earned itself an impressive 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. The exciting horror-comedy follows new bride Grace (Samara Weaving,) as she marries into the odd and eccentric […]

Movie Review: ’47 Meters Down: Uncaged’

Posted: August 16, 2019 at 12:15 pm   /   Movie Reviews

It seems that at least once or twice a year, the distribution of a shark movie with a theatrical run meets the needs of the masses to see their share of carnage (tiding them over until the next film of course,) and this year’s installment meant to fulfill that need was Johannes Roberts’ “47 Meters […]

Movie Review: ‘Good Boys’ Starring Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon

Posted: August 16, 2019 at 8:37 am   /   Movie Reviews

Beanbag boys for life! That’s something you’re going to hear quite a few times when seeing the new R-rated tween comedy Good Boys. The film holds no punches when it throws our sixth-grade trio of Max (Jacob Tremblay), Lucas (Keith L. Williams) and Thor (Brady Noon) through a couple of days of chaos. The film […]
