Review: ‘Justice League’ Starring Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Henry Cavill

Posted: November 15, 2017 at 1:56 pm   /   Movie Reviews

I am going to be completely honest and admit my expectations for Zack Snyder’s Justice League did not amount to much. It’s no secret that it has been a rocky road for the DC extended universe of films between 2013 until today beginning with the bland and uninspiring Man of Steel to the most recent colorful and breath of […]

Film Review: ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Starring Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe

Posted: November 10, 2017 at 8:24 am   /   Movie Reviews

“I see the world as it should be.” And with that, a simple explanation for how Hercule (pronounced Air-kyool) Poirot is able to deduce mysteries so easily. He’s weathered by age, old enough to not be fooled through naivete, yet idealistic that he remains optimistic, perhaps even yearning for a world without the crimes he’s […]

Film Review: ‘Daddy’s Home 2’ Starring Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Jon Lithgow, Mel Gibson

Posted: November 9, 2017 at 6:24 pm   /   Movie Reviews

2015’s “Daddy’s Home” was a quiet hit. The film took in $250 million, as Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell showed once again that they have great comedic chemistry together. The pair starred together in “The Other Guys,” another money maker. It was inevitable that a film that grossed $250 million wouldn’t garner a sequel, especially […]

Film Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Starring Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum

Posted: November 3, 2017 at 7:55 am   /   Movie Reviews

Just where exactly has Thor been? 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was the last significant appearance of Thor Odinson (not including the brief mid-credit cameo after Doctor Strange). There’s been five MCU movies since Ultron, including the all-but-titled Avengers flick that was Captain America: Civil War, which left fans everywhere wondering “Where is Thor?!” Well, […]

Film Review: ‘Thank You For Your Service’ Starring Miles Teller, Beulah Koale, Joe Cole

Posted: October 27, 2017 at 8:39 am   /   Movie Reviews

“What do we do?” It’s a question that hangs in the air during one crucial early scene in Thank You For Your Service. Home from Afghanistan, desperate for a sense of normalcy, Tausolo “Solo” Aieti (Beula Koale) presents the question to Adam Schumann (Miles Teller), his best friend and squadmate. In the last couple decades, […]

Film Review: ‘Suburbicon’ Starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac

Posted: October 27, 2017 at 8:25 am   /   Movie Reviews

It’s time to move out Last week, I gave the Michael Fassbender-led “thriller” The Snowman a ZERO STAR rating (see my review here), citing that I could not tell if it was failing in its attempt to be a serious crime drama or successful in its attempt to be a hilarious, intentionally cheesy detective film […]

Film Review: ‘Only the Brave’ Starring Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges

Posted: October 20, 2017 at 9:15 am   /   Movie Reviews

Maybe it’s because they don’t fight a physical enemy, but for some reason, movies about firefighters tend to be pretty scarce. Sure, there was Ladder 49, the old classic The Towering Inferno, and of course, Backdraft, perhaps the most highly-regarded firefighter movie of all-time. Much of the first half of the film is the standard […]

Film Review: ‘The Foreigner’ Starring Jackie Chan, Pierce Brosnan

Chan and Brosnan fight… to be the star of the show   I believe there are many of us who, for years, have been asking the same question: where the hell has Jackie Chan been? Apparently, America’s favorite martial arts action star has been brushing up on his acting skills. The 63-year-old actor makes an […]
