Posted: March 2, 2017 at 6:59 am   /   Movie Reviews

Have you ever thought of two of your favorite movies and wondered what it would be like to combine them into one? Before I Fall would be the result of the equation if you combined the 1993 Bill Murray classic Groundhog Day and Tina Fey’s 2004 gem Mean Girls. Unfortunately this film doesn’t deserve to […]

Review: ‘Get Out’ Starring Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford

Posted: February 23, 2017 at 5:00 pm   /   Movie Reviews

It’s been a while since I’ve felt this uncomfortable leaving a movie. Make no mistake about it, Get Out (the directorial debut of comedian Jordan Peele) sets a new standard for modern horror films. While there are some funny moments, the laughs are scarce; this is a film that will be sure to leave audiences shocked and speechless Alison […]

Movie Review: ‘White House Down’ Starring Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx

Posted: June 28, 2013 at 6:26 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

I’m a huge Roland Emmerich fan. I want this to be known. Some of my all time I-can-watch-this-a-thousand-times movies are his. Some of his great action-story films like Independence Day and The Patriot hold special places in my nostalgia bank. Heck, nothing beats watching his crazier over the top what-if films like The Day After […]

Movie Review: ‘Dead Man Down’ Starring Colin Farrell, Dominic Cooper

Colin Farrell has been a hot streak as of late, with some great role choices. First, he stole the show in Horrible Bosses. He really was about the only reason to see the movie. Then, he had an Academy Award worthy performance in the film In Bruges and turned around with a delightful role in […]
