Posted: March 21, 2019 at 12:20 pm   /   Movie Reviews

In 2017, Jordan Peele surprised the hell out of the world with his first feature-length film (and one of my favorites of the year), GET OUT. Two years and one Oscar win later, audiences are clamoring for his next feature titled US which is marketed as “a new nightmare from Jordan Peele.” …and what a […]

For the first time in quite a while, I went to a see movie without knowing much of anything about it – that movie being Greta. I knew it starred Chloe Grace Moretz, whom I’ve been fond of since her breakout roles in 500 Days of Summer and more notably, Kick-Ass, and that the film […]

Heading to the theater to see the screening of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, two things raced through my mind: Could the movie provide a satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy? and Am I going to die in this pending ice storm that’s supposed to hit tonight?

Movie Review: ‘Fighting With My Family’ Starring Florence Pugh, Vince Vaughn, Dwayne Johnson

Posted: February 21, 2019 at 7:52 am   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Movie Studios has given us no reason to think any film that comes out of their camp will be any good. From box office duds like The Marine and 12 Rounds, and a plethora of straight to DVD films, the company does not have a credible track record. Well, maybe that […]

Movie Review: ‘Happy Death Day 2 U’ Starring Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Phi Vu

Posted: February 14, 2019 at 8:47 am   /   Movie Reviews

Happy Death Day was a surprise hit in 2017. As an October slasher flick with a Groundhog’s Day gimmick, it served its purpose in being an entertaining comedy/horror despite some cringe level dialogue at times. With a $4.8 million Blumhouse budget and the film going on to gross over $125 million worldwide, a sequel was […]
