As I walked into my local theatre to see Alajandro Iñárritu's “The Revenant” I realized that my hope for this film was extraordinarily high, so high that I began to worry the film couldn’t possibly deliver. After all, Iñárritu’s last film, “Birdman”, ha... Read more »

Its not often I see indie films during their initial release but I recently had the pleasure of seeing Turbo Kid, and it was absolutely amazing.Turbo Kid, in a nutshell, is basically a gigantic nod to the 80s and cult films from that decade. Most notably is the similarities to Mad Max. Turbo Kid tel... Read more »

If I were asked to describe the movie No Escape in a single word, I would have to say what was going through my mind the entire film: Intense. Despite the slow and somewhat comedic start, this movie is not what I expected to see when I first saw the trailer. I thought it would be like many other act... Read more »

The summer movie season doesn't officially end until Labor Day, but I don't see much on the movie horizon until then, so I decided to jump the gun and prematurely release a list of the best and worst summer blockbusters. I would have to say this year’s crop of blockbuster films proved more enjoy... Read more »

After a fairly successful year with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, Marvel Entertainment finally did it. They finally made a bad movie. The not-so highly anticipated Fantastic Four opens up in theatres this weekend, with a select group of comic book fans hopeful that justice will finally be br... Read more »

The original Vacation is a classic. The new Vacation is definitely not a classic, but it’s actually not bad either. Believe me; I’m as surprised as you are. Staring Ed Helms as grown up Rusty Griswold and Christina Applegate as his wife, Debbie, the new Vacation aims to recreate the family fun... Read more »

I’ve used the word ridiculous to describe the last two movies I reviewed. For the sake of continuity, I’m making the word ridiculous the theme of this article as well. In Adam Sandler’s latest starring role, he play a nerd named Brenner, a former video-game prodigy turned washed up loser who... Read more »

Last week I saw the Minions movie, and it was absolutely ridiculous. This week, I saw Ant-Man, and while this movie is ridiculous too, it is ridiculous in all the right ways. Based off the Marvel comic of the same name, Ant-Man plays out as the story of ex-con Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) journey to bec... Read more »

If you were wondering, “Did they really make an entire movie out of the sidekicks from Despicable Me?” The answer is an unbelievable and unfortunate yes.   Minions is a movie all about those annoying little yellow creatures that, for some reason, people seem to be obsessed with. It explores the o... Read more »

I recognize that I am not exactly the target audience for Magic Mike XXL. As a straight male, I’m probably the last person the producers want reviewing this movie. Nonetheless I did my duty as any good movie critic would and sat through two hours of men without shirts dancing, rubbing and showing ... Read more »
