Movie Review: ‘Toy Story 4’ Starring Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts

Posted: June 21, 2019 at 8:56 am   /   Movie Reviews

The Toy Story franchise is truly something special. When Disney/Pixar released the original Toy Story in 1995, filmgoers were introduced to Woody and Buzz and stunned by the truly groundbreaking animation in which their stories were told. In a way, it marked the end of the 2D animation style we’d all grown accustomed to from […]

Movie Review: ‘Men in Black: International’ Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Kumail Nanjiani

Posted: June 14, 2019 at 7:41 am   /   Movie Reviews

I was never much of a fan of the Men in Black films. At least that’s what I told my friend leading into this movie before she began shaming me for at least the first one. Maybe it’s having probably only seen it once when it came out in 1997 and not really remembering much […]

Movie Review: X-Men ‘Dark Phoenix’ Starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence

Posted: June 7, 2019 at 8:15 am   /   Movie Reviews

The X-Men franchise just can’t seem to close out a trilogy, it seems.  After the greatness of 2000’s X-Men and even more so with 2003’s X2: X-Men United, viewers were left scratching our heads when X-Men: The Last Stand was made to close things out. After a couple of Wolverine films (that actually did get […]

Movie Review: ‘The Secret Life of Pets 2’ Starring Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish

Posted: June 7, 2019 at 7:30 am   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

If the first The Secret Life of Pets came off like Toy Story with animals, the sequel tries to distance itself from that notion as Max and his gang of furry friends venture out into New York City and also get a taste of life on the farm in the sequel, out today. Kevin Hart, […]

Movie Review: ‘Ma’ Starring Octavia Spencer, Juliette Lewis

Posted: May 31, 2019 at 9:15 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews, Reviews

Let’s get things straight. Ma isn’t a good movie – but it isn’t bad either. Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, otherwise known as Ma, a loner who lives by herself in an Ohio town. While the script is pure garbage, Spencer acts her ass off and gives audiences the performance of a lifetime. While […]

Movie Review: ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Starring Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown

Posted: May 31, 2019 at 7:34 am   /   Movie Reviews

“Long live the king.” He’s back. Released and set five years after the reboot did over $500 million at the box office, Godzilla: King of the Monsters serves as a sequel and a bridge between the 2014 film, the seminal 2017 Kong: Skull Island, and next year’s Godzilla vs. Kong. Although it is a sequel, […]

Movie Review: ‘Rocketman’ Starring Taron Egerton, Bryce Dallas Howard

Posted: May 31, 2019 at 6:47 am   /   Movie Reviews

By now most moviegoers have probably seen Bohemian Rhapsody.  While they are aware that it was nominated for quite a few Oscars, the film has been criticized for sugarcoating Freddie Mercury’s promiscuity and rampant drug use. The film also failed to stick to the facts on many things in the film, including how the band […]

Movie Review: ‘Brightburn’ Starring Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn

Posted: May 25, 2019 at 11:20 pm   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

What if Superman were evil? What if there was no hero to stop the villain? Sounds like a dark thought to me. Well, that’s exactly what Brightburn – the new film from writers Brian and Mark Gunn – is all about. If the Gunn name makes you think of James, don’t worry – he’s the […]

Movie Review: ‘Booksmart,’ Starring Kaitlyn Dever, Beanie Feldstein

Posted: May 24, 2019 at 8:39 am   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

Going into Booksmart, all I really knew about it is it was directed by Olivia Wilde. I also knew that Jonah Hill’s sister, Feldstein, was one of the stars. That was pretty much all I knew about the new coming of age comedy. I was expecting a comedy along the same lines as Superbad, a […]

Movie Review: ‘John Wick 3: Parabellum’ Starring Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne

Posted: May 17, 2019 at 8:13 am   /   Movie Reviews

Usually, I don’t do this, but the plot of John Wick 3: Parabellum is pretty simple. If you want the full review, skip to the next paragraph. If you really just want an abbreviated but accurate TL;DR – people want to kill John Wick. John Wick does not want them to kill John Wick. A […]
