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 […]

Movie Review: ‘The Sun Is Also a Star’ Starring Yara Shahidi, Charles Melton, Keong Sim

Posted: May 17, 2019 at 8:05 am   /   Movie Reviews

The Sun Is Also a Star, the latest film from director Ry Russo-Young, stars Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton as Natasha and Daniel, two teens who develop a young love in a rapid amount of time, a time that isn’t so convenient for Shahidi’s character. The film is based on the best-selling YA book from […]

Movie Review: ‘A Dog’s Journey,’ starring Dennis Quaid, Marge Helgenberger

Posted: May 16, 2019 at 7:01 pm   /   Movie Reviews

A Dog’s Journey is not much different from A Dog’s Purpose. The biggest difference in the new sequel is that the film tackles some heavier topics that might be disturbing to younger audiences. We see topics such as alcoholism, death, abusive male partners and poverty tackled in the sequel to the 2017 film. I might […]

Review: ‘Pokémon: Detective Pikachu’ Starring Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith

Posted: May 10, 2019 at 8:19 am   /   Movie Reviews

If you’ve lived somewhere with internet or tv within the last 25 years, there’s not much of a chance you haven’t heard of the Pokémon phenomenon. If you haven’t, well, you’re not reading this. Seriously, this franchise is a juggernaut. With over 300 million video games sold, a TV show that’s spanned 20 years and […]

Movie Review: ‘The Hustle’ Starring Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson

Posted: May 10, 2019 at 8:13 am   /   Movie Reviews

The Hustle stars Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway as an unlikely pairing of con artists who exploit gullible men for their riches. While Josephine (Hathaway) exploits and steals from the extremely wealthy, Penny (Wilson) is more of a cunning street level performer, luring in douchebag men with a fake dating app profile, but you find […]

Movie Review: ‘Long Shot’ Hits All the Right Marks

Posted: May 3, 2019 at 8:25 am   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

It may not seem like a great pairing – stoner-comedy star Seth Rogen opposite beautiful, straight-laced Charlize Theron – but Long Shot gets it right. While Rogen is at his best in the new film, Theron steals the show. Unlike most female leads in rom-coms, Theron isn’t your sweet, 16 Candles character. In Long Shot, […]

Movie Review: ‘UglyDolls’ Starring Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Janelle Monáe

Posted: May 3, 2019 at 7:09 am   /   Movie Reviews

Let’s take a trip to Uglyville, shall we? The name is not as literal as it sounds. In fact, it’s really quite the contrary. No, the town is called Uglyville because this is where all the defective toys from the factory above get dumped off when one of its manufactured toys don’t pass QA, therefore […]

Review: ‘The Intruder’ Starring Meagan Good, Michael Ealy, Dennis Quaid

Posted: May 3, 2019 at 7:05 am   /   Movie Reviews

The Intruder is the kind of movie that I went into with little to no expectations, yet it still delivers even less. It’s this year’s Breaking In (review), in which we get a cookie-cutter home-invasion movie that serves us nothing more than cheap tricks. The plot is simple. Scott (Michael Ealy) is a young and […]
