All Eyez On Me: Movie Review

The problem with a life that shines bright and burns out too soon is that you know it doesn’t end well. Tupac shone brighter than most during his far-too-short life and prolific career. The man was larger than life, and his life was stranger than fiction. All Eyez on Me tries to shine the slain […]

Rough Night Movie Review

The summer movie season has begun, and so far it’s delivered two amazing films featuring badass women and no, I wouldn’t use the designation of chick-flicks. In a movie age where we are finally realizing how much representation matters, Wonder Woman and Rought Night arrive at the perfect time though they each deliver completely different […]

The Book of Henry: Movie Review

Jurassic World and Star Wars: Episode IX director, Colin Trevorrow, brings us a heartwarming drama. The Book of Henry stars Naomi Watts as Susan Carpenter, a struggling single mother, who discovers her oldest son’s plot to rescue the girl next door from her abusive stepfather. Despite the thriller elements the premise has, the film had […]

Cars 3: Movie Review

Coming into Cars 3 I was a bit hesitant on what I was about to see due to how disappointed I was with the second Cars film. Yet I came out of the theater pleasantly surprised on how well this film came out. Pixar has truly redeemed the Cars franchise with this new addition seeing how […]

The Hero: Movie Review

Jet Li starred in 2002’s Hero, a high-flying martial arts movie. 2017’s The Hero, starring Sam Elliott, is a very different kind of movie. No reboot here. In this decidedly non-martial arts movie (I counted exactly zero karate chops), Lee Hayden (Sam Elliott) is an aging actor who earned his fame in Westerns, but whose […]

My Cousin Rachel: Movie Review

So going into My Cousin Rachel I was expecting a typical period piece where the plot was as predictable as the character development. I hadn’t really heard anything about this film up until watching it, doesn’t seem like it was highly publicized. What we end up getting is a piece that leaves you questioning the end. […]

It Comes At Night: Movie Review

It Comes at Night – a vague and ominous title befitting a movie that itself is vague and ominous. The title is great, if only it fit this movie, it would be even better. Set in a world reeling from a deadly pandemic, this movie’s danger isn’t the exclusive domain of the dark, so the […]

Wonder Woman: Movie Review

The long awaited fourth installment of the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) Wonder Woman hits the theaters this weekend and the lead up to it comes with a lot of anticipation. Now this movie wasn’t widely promoted up until the month before its release yet that still isn’t going to stop people from going. This is […]

The Hitman’s Bodyguard Movie Trailer

The world’s top protection agent [Ryan Reynolds] is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hitmen [Samuel L. Jackson]. The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous […]

Baywatch Movie Review

If Citizen Kane, widely regarded as one of the finest films ever made, is the cinematic equivalent of dinner at a four-star restaurant, Baywatch is a Hot Pocket and a cold Mountain Dew. Both are satisfying in their way, but only one reflects enduring and lofty creative effort. Not every movie aspires to be high […]

Alien: Covenant – Movie Review

Following the unexpected positive reception of Prometheus comes the film Alien: Covenant, which is set between Prometheus and the original Alien film. So this thankfully completes the overarching storyline of the entire Alien franchise, I do not include the Alien vs Predator films because those are spinoffs. I went into this film feeling optimistic and […]

Dunkirk Movie Trailer & Response

One of my most anticipated movies of this year, for a multitude of reasons, Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk has now provided audiences with its second preview. The scope of Nolan’s first foray into a war film will, per usual Nolan, be epic. Just from the score accompanying the first trailer, you feel stranded alongside the soldiers […]
