Movie Review: ‘The Secret Life of Pets 2’ Starring Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish

Posted: June 7, 2019 at 7:30 am   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

If the first The Secret Life of Pets came off like Toy Story with animals, the sequel tries to distance itself from that notion as Max and his gang of furry friends venture out into New York City and also get a taste of life on the farm in the sequel, out today. Kevin Hart, […]

Movie Review: ‘Ma’ Starring Octavia Spencer, Juliette Lewis

Posted: May 31, 2019 at 9:15 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews, Reviews

Let’s get things straight. Ma isn’t a good movie – but it isn’t bad either. Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, otherwise known as Ma, a loner who lives by herself in an Ohio town. While the script is pure garbage, Spencer acts her ass off and gives audiences the performance of a lifetime. While […]

Movie Review: ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Starring Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown

Posted: May 31, 2019 at 7:34 am   /   Movie Reviews

“Long live the king.” He’s back. Released and set five years after the reboot did over $500 million at the box office, Godzilla: King of the Monsters serves as a sequel and a bridge between the 2014 film, the seminal 2017 Kong: Skull Island, and next year’s Godzilla vs. Kong. Although it is a sequel, […]

Movie Review: ‘Rocketman’ Starring Taron Egerton, Bryce Dallas Howard

Posted: May 31, 2019 at 6:47 am   /   Movie Reviews

By now most moviegoers have probably seen Bohemian Rhapsody.  While they are aware that it was nominated for quite a few Oscars, the film has been criticized for sugarcoating Freddie Mercury’s promiscuity and rampant drug use. The film also failed to stick to the facts on many things in the film, including how the band […]

Movie Review: ‘Brightburn’ Starring Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn

Posted: May 25, 2019 at 11:20 pm   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

What if Superman were evil? What if there was no hero to stop the villain? Sounds like a dark thought to me. Well, that’s exactly what Brightburn – the new film from writers Brian and Mark Gunn – is all about. If the Gunn name makes you think of James, don’t worry – he’s the […]

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 […]
