Heeee’s baaaack! The red-spandex wearing merc-with-a-mouth, Deadpool, has come back for a second outing in Deadpool 2. Ryan Reynolds reprises the titular role that he was all but destined to play with the foul-mouthed but still lovable vigilante, Wade Wilson. This is Reynolds’ third time portraying the character, though we try hard to forget about […]

Film Review: ‘Breaking In’ Starring Gabrielle Union, Billy Burke, Richard Cabral

Posted: May 11, 2018 at 9:17 am   /   Movie Reviews

When the most fun you have with a movie is not from the movie itself but from the audience engagement for laughing at inappropriate times for what’s transpiring on screen, there’s something wrong with your film. In the case of Breaking In, there’s quite a bit more than just one thing. Breaking In is one […]

Posted: April 25, 2018 at 8:19 am   /   Movie Reviews

It’s here. It’s finally here. For the past ten years, Disney/Marvel has produced eighteen feature films showcasing the likes of our favorite Marvel superheroes. Jon Favreau’s Iron Man was a surprise blockbuster in 2008 carried by a career-resurrecting performance by Robert Downey Jr. and the creative minds at Disney/Marvel (see: Kevin Feige) knew they were […]

Film Review: ‘Super Troopers 2’ Starring Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, Erik Stolhanske

Posted: April 20, 2018 at 8:49 am   /   Movie Reviews

In early 2001, Super Troopers busted on the scene and became a cult classic in the comedy world. I was a freshman in high school and it seemed to be the the movie that everyone was talking about. For years, fans have been clamoring for a sequel, but the guys at Broken Lizard had other […]

Film Review: ‘I Feel Pretty’ Starring Amy Schumer, Michelle Williams, Emily Ratajkowski, Aidy Bryant

Posted: April 20, 2018 at 8:49 am   /   Movie Reviews

Who would have thought Amy Schumer could be charming? Additionally, who would have thought I’d ever type that? I surely didn’t. It’s true though. I hadn’t seen any trailers for I Feel Pretty before going into it but already didn’t have high expectations due to the risque, often-vulgar comedienne lead. From the opening sequence though, I […]

Film Review: ‘Rampage’ Starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman

Posted: April 13, 2018 at 8:10 am   /   Movie Reviews

Overall, when it comes to adapting video games into film, the ratio of good to bad is staggering. This year, we’re one for one with a faithful adaptation of Tomb Raider and now Rampage. I don’t know what it is that screenwriters and directors don’t get when it comes to creating that bridge to transition […]

Film Review: ‘A Quiet Place’ Starring John Krasinski, Emily Blunt

Posted: April 6, 2018 at 8:01 am   /   Movie Reviews

A Quiet Place is my kind of horror. Imagine living in a desolate world. You’re in your late thirties, maybe early forties. You’re married with three kids and living on an isolated farm in the middle of nowhere. You have no internet, no phones, and your only form of communication is a radio to signal […]

Posted: April 6, 2018 at 7:52 am   /   Movie Reviews

It’s not an easy subject to broach, but inevitably, parents have to talk with their kids about the birds and the bees. Some parents try to delay it for as long as possible, but eventually, everyone’s gotta learn about the whole bumping uglies bit. Many movies have approached the topic; some offer serious takes, but […]

Film Review: ‘Ready Player One’ Starring Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn

Posted: March 29, 2018 at 9:29 am   /   Movie Reviews

When the first trailer dropped for Ready Player One, I was incredibly intrigued by its premise and seemingly endless string of video game and pop culture references riddled throughout, not to mention none other than the likes of Steven Spielberg in the director’s chair. Therefore, I sought out the 2011 best-selling book by Ernest Cline. […]
