Fifty Shades Darker: Movie Review

I get it. I’m not the target audience for Fifty Shades Darker. So what? I appreciate that life has more to offer than hot wings and beer. Full disclosure, I love hot wings and beer.

Allied: Movie Review

It seems Hollywood is bound and determined to churn out reboots, most of which nobody asked for or wanted. Thankfully, Allied, starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard is a welcome exception.

Ryan Reynolds new “superhero” film totes itself as just an action film but realistically it is a Action-Rom-Com with little to no […]

Carol Movie Review

Carol is not a film to walk into lightly; I should let you know this now as you read this review and not once you are sitting in the theater expecting some basic love story. It isn’t that. It couldn’t be that because there is so much complexity that has to be shown and not […]
