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 […]

Film Review: ‘Daddy’s Home 2’ Starring Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Jon Lithgow, Mel Gibson

Posted: November 9, 2017 at 6:24 pm   /   Movie Reviews

2015’s “Daddy’s Home” was a quiet hit. The film took in $250 million, as Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell showed once again that they have great comedic chemistry together. The pair starred together in “The Other Guys,” another money maker. It was inevitable that a film that grossed $250 million wouldn’t garner a sequel, especially […]

Review: TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT – The Good, The Sad and the Rusty

Posted: June 21, 2017 at 1:05 pm   /   Movie Reviews

The fifth installment in the Transformers franchise is more terrible than meets the eye. As I think back on the latest Michael Bay robot slug-fest, I can’t help to ponder who exactly these movies are catering to. Judging by the box office numbers, everyone sees them. But why can’t they be good? They have a […]

If you’ve enjoyed the episodes where we hated that week’s movie then boy are you in for a treat. This week it’s all about Transformers: Age of Extinction. Transformers is the Nickelback of film franchises. Critics hate ’em but they keep making money. Well… we are critics. So critique we shall. Or perhaps “criticize” is […]

Movie Review: ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction” Starring Marky Mark

Posted: June 27, 2014 at 6:30 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews

Michael Bay is a bit of a conundrum. His films are consumed greedily by audiences, and near universally panned by critics. Even the critics who give his films a pass do so begrudgingly.  Transformers: Age of Extinction could get a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes and it will still likely be one of the biggest releases of the […]

Movie Review: ‘Lone Survivor’ Starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Eric Bana

Posted: January 10, 2014 at 12:00 am   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews, Reviews

It may be the fact that many of my relatives have served in the armed forces (one of my great cousins was in the second wave at Normandy). It may be the fact that a lot of my friends currently are serving. It may just be that I’m jingoistic to a fault. Whatever the reason, […]

Movie Review: ‘Pain & Gain’ Starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie

Posted: April 25, 2013 at 10:54 pm   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Michael Bay has been responsible for a number of less than stellar films over the years. Some of them were downright stinkers, i.e. Transformers: Dark of the Moon. He has also been a producer on some of absolutely horrid remakes, i.e. The Hitcher and A Nightmare on Elm Street. So, when I heard he was […]
