La La Land (2016)

La La Land is about love.

Get used to that word, you are going to hear it often in this review.

This is not only a film about the idealized romantic love we have for that certain someone who makes our heart ache, but also the love we have for that seemingly unattainable dream.… More “La La Land (2016)”

Allied

Allied is a strange film. Part spy thriller and part romantic drama, it never quite reaches the peaks it is reaching for. There are solid but inconsistent performances from the two leads and it does a great job of unraveling its mystery through (My favorite) visual storytelling.… More “Allied”

Arrival

We often take language, the words we speak to each other, for granted. For many, language is just words. Arrival takes a much deeper look into how language connects us, how certain words can inspire fear, anger, and even love.… More “Arrival”

Doctor Strange

Many film fans roll their eyes when yet another comic hero origin film comes around. It’s a well worn formula that often becomes repetitive. The hero goes through some sort of tragedy, they recover and triumph over a great evil.… More “Doctor Strange”

Inferno (2016)

Alright so if any of you have not seen Ron Howard’s films Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons then I would recommend you to watch those two movies before going to see the third installment of the franchise based on the best-selling author’s Dan Brown books!… More “Inferno (2016)”

Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016)

Alright, so there’s really not that many movies now in these days that do comedy on spies. It’s always more of an action type setting that goes dark or twisted pretty fast. But not this movie; this movie takes what makes a spy movie interesting to go and see combined with comedy and I think thats what made this movie very interesting.… More “Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016)”

The Accountant

Early in The Accountant, a young Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) meticulously pieces a puzzle together.  Determined to finish what he started, the boy becomes angry when the final piece goes missing.… More “The Accountant”

Deepwater Horizon (2016)

On April 20, 2010 an oil spill spread across the whole Gulf of Mexico causing lots of ocean wildlife to be dangered! But your not here to read about what the oil spill caused your here to read about the events that happened that lead up to that which is where this movie review comes into place!… More “Deepwater Horizon (2016)”

MOVIE REVIEW: ELSTREE 1976
 
The Star Wars Saga is full of iconic characters.  Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia are the stars that have legions of fans.  But what about Greedo? … More “Elstree 1976”

Batman (1989)

NOSTALGIC MOVIE REVIEW:  BATMAN (1989)
It’s Batman Day!
In honor of my favorite superhero ever, I’m doing a nostalgic review of Tim Burton’s Batman.  I clearly remember seeing the film in theaters at nine years old and wearing out my VHS copy in the years following its release. … More “Batman (1989)”

Blair Witch (2016)

I have to admit after the events of the 2nd Blair Witch movie (Book of Shadows: The Blair Witch Project 2) I was very skeptical for them to make any other film to go with the Blair Witch Project movie series.… More “Blair Witch (2016)”

Snowden

Movie Review:  SNOWDEN
In June 2013, the United States’ intelligence community, including the National Security Agency, was rocked when analyst Edward Snowden revealed details of its global surveillance program. … More “Snowden”

Sully

MOVIE REVIEW:  SULLY
On January 15th, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549 made a crash landing into the Hudson River after losing both of its engines.  Piloted by Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, all 155 passengers survived the incident and the crew were hailed as heroes. … More “Sully”

The Light Between Oceans

MOVIE REVIEW:  THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS
Some of the most popular romantic dramas rely heavily on melodrama.  Nicholas Sparks has made a career out of it.  But in the end, these dramas fail in my eyes because they become so overwrought, it becomes unbelievable and eventually unwatchable. … More “The Light Between Oceans”

Krull

NOSTALGIC MOVIE REVIEW: KRULL
 
If you bring up Krull to fantasy film fans, you will get a pretty strong reaction.  Some say it’s an underrated classic.  Others say it’s a derivative mess. … More “Krull”
