“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”: A hollow shell of a movie

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”: A hollow shell of a movie

I'm going to start off this article by clearing the air right up front. By no means am I, or have I ever been a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan, so before everyone jumps down my throat for being just another pissed off superfan, I will assure you that I am not. If I'm being honest with everyone, this...

“Into The Storm”: 100% chance of tornados and enjoyment?

“Into The Storm”: 100% chance of tornados and enjoyment?

Opening this Friday, August 8th in theaters everywhere is the pulse pounding natural disaster flick “Into The Storm.” Helmed as a modernized “Twister” told through a found footage, documentary style, “Into The Storm” is a surprisingly enjoyable feature. The stories content is simplistic...

A few months ago I made an entry into my column “Out of My Element” featuring the 1968 classic movie, “The Planet of the Apes.” In it, I described in great detail my love of the “Planet of the Apes” series (to read it, click here). The latest entry into the film series, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” released over this ...

“Tammy” is more of the same for Melissa McCarthy

When I first saw the trailer for “Tammy,” one thing crossed my mind. Does Melissa McCarthy play the same character in every single movie? You know what I’m talking about. She’s a big girl with a big personality who wears T-shirts and sweatpants and who, despite what she might think, actually...

“22 Jump Street:” A sequel that’s . . . good?

I'll be the first to say it. Sequels have a tendency to turn out bad.  I don't want to make any sweeping generalizations here, but sequels usually take everything you love about a first movie and mangle it with overly simplified, highly formulaic stories that make characters that once seemed so original,...

Okay, so I’ve been told that a lot of my previous ‘Grind My Gears’ may make me out to be a bit impatient, but let me assure you, that is not the case. Let’s be honest here, if people didn’t have anything to complain about, the world would probably explode. We all know that everyone can be...

Maleficent flies into theatres May 30th, setting itself up as the family friendly alternative to just about everything else currently in theaters. Boasting a notable leading lady, a universe chalk full of CGI and a story we all know and love, Maleficent is a fun movie that is perfect for the summer...

On May 16, Godzilla will smash his way into theaters for the first time in more than ten years, but is the lizard kings return to the silver screen as big as everyone has been saying it is? To say people have high hopes would be an understatement, heck I was one of them. If you’ve been keeping track...

I am admittedly not a sports fan. By extension, I am not much of a sports-movie fan. Like everything however, there are exceptions. “Remember the Titans”, and “We are Marshall” never fail to get me going, but they belong to a short list of sports-movies I can tolerate. Recently however, ...
