Film Review: ‘Phantom Thread’ Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville, Vicky Krieps

Posted: January 12, 2018 at 1:24 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Phantom Thread is the story of a 1950’s dress-maker named Reynolds Woodcock, portrayed brilliantly (as always) by Daniel Day-Lewis. This is Day-Lewis’ second collaboration with director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will be Blood) and reportedly his final role before retirement. There were rumors of him wanting to retire before he took on this film, but […]

Film Review: ‘The Commuter’ Starring Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson

Posted: January 12, 2018 at 8:53 am   /   Movie Reviews

After tackling planes in 2015’s Non-Stop, Liam Neeson is back to tackle trains in the latest entry to his action movie repertoire with The Commuter, and it’s more or less the same movie. This is Neeson’s fourth collaboration with director Jaume Collet-Serra (Run All Night and Unknown being the other two), and it’s pretty much […]

Film Review: ‘Paddington 2’ Starring Ben Wishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Sally Hawkins

Posted: January 12, 2018 at 8:29 am   /   Movie Reviews

What a delightful film. Growing up, I can’t say I recall having read any of Michael Bond’s A Bear Called Paddington books, but I can’t imagine they’re any less charming than the two films that have been adapted from them. I watched 2015’s Paddington just before Paddington 2 and was enamored by its charm and […]

Film Review: ‘All the Money in the World’ Starring Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer

Posted: December 25, 2017 at 11:10 am   /   Movie Reviews

All the Money in the World is directed by Ridley Scott and is adapted from the 1995 book Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty. Aside from a little bit of dramatization, this is the mostly true story of the 1973 kidnapping of the grandson of the richest […]

Movie Review: ‘Bright’ starring: Will Smith, Joel Edgerton

Posted: December 22, 2017 at 7:09 pm   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

Will Smith deserves so much better. Let’s hope Smith doesn’t go the same route as Adam Sandler, but it looks like the once bankable star just might. There is no denying that Sandler hasn’t made a decent movie in 10 years. Some may argue if he ever did. Well, The Fresh Prince is working on […]

Film Review: ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ starting Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson

Posted: December 22, 2017 at 10:12 am   /   Movie Reviews

Star Wars. Back to the Future. Lord of the Rings. Pitch Perfect? Pitch, please. Pitch Perfect is a movie that never needed a sequel, let alone two. It was one of those movies that snuck into my life and surprised me. When I saw it being advertised as coming to HBO some time in 2013, […]

Film Review: ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black

Posted: December 20, 2017 at 7:54 am   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

Dwayne Johnson is the catalyst, the glue, or The Rock, if you will, that holds Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle together. The wrestler turned actor and one of the most endearing leading men in show business shows why he is Hollywood’s $20 million-man in the sequel to the 1995 Robin Williams hit. Johnson’s comedic charm […]

Film Review: ‘Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi’ Starring Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver

Posted: December 15, 2017 at 9:15 am   /   Movie Reviews

The Force Awakens was a colossal success for Disney/LucasFilm in 2015. It opened to record-shattering numbers and currently sits as the highest grossing movie domestically of all time at $936million (third worldwide at a little over $2billion). Being Star Wars and having that kind of success (especially after following the stigma that lingers over the […]

First and foremost, 2017 has been quite the year – not only because of the films I’m about to list, but for me personally as well. This is my first year writing anywhere outside of my mini-reviews on Facebook, so I’m very appreciative of the opportunity and want to give a big thank you to […]

Film Review: ‘The Disaster Artist’ Starring James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Paul Scheer

Posted: November 30, 2017 at 12:19 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Let’s not bury the lead. The Disaster Artist, starring and directed by James Franco, is the funniest film of the year. You don’t have to have seen the 2003 movie The Room in order to enjoy this new film. However, it is helpful to understand what you are getting into. The Disaster Artist is based on a […]
