Movie Review: X-Men ‘Dark Phoenix’ Starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence

Posted: June 7, 2019 at 8:15 am   /   Movie Reviews

The X-Men franchise just can’t seem to close out a trilogy, it seems.  After the greatness of 2000’s X-Men and even more so with 2003’s X2: X-Men United, viewers were left scratching our heads when X-Men: The Last Stand was made to close things out. After a couple of Wolverine films (that actually did get […]

Film Review: ‘The Snowman’ Starring Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg

Posted: October 20, 2017 at 8:24 am   /   Movie Reviews

Tommy Wiseau and Stieg Larsson walk into a bar… I believe we have the first great detective film spoof in years on our hands. A thoroughly ridiculous, classically clichéd parody that would put Mel Brooks to shame. At least, that is the best explanation for The Snowman, starring Michael Fassbender and executive produced by Martin […]

Review: ‘Alien: Covenant’ Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride

Posted: May 18, 2017 at 6:48 pm   /   Movie Reviews

One of the films I’ve been looking forward to for the last few months is Alien: Covenant. I was not disappointed, but I wasn’t totally pleased either. While the trailer of the film leads the viewer to believe that Ridley Scott’s latest is an all out scare/gore-fest, it’s really not. In fact, the audience doesn’t […]

Movie Review: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac

Posted: May 27, 2016 at 7:44 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

It’s hard to believe that we are now nine films into the X-Men franchise, which kicked off in 2000 with X-Men and was the catalyst for the “serious” superhero films we know today. Although Blade came out two years earlier, it never had quite the commercial success of the original X movie – which brought […]
