Beauty and the Beast (2017) review

The story and characters you love come to life in the live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, a cinematic event celebrating one of the most beloved tales ever told. Over produced and unnecessary, I really wonder who they were selling this movie to. I grew up with this movie being a hallmark of my childhood, Read the full article…

Sonic 3 game review

As the first game to introduce us to Knuckles, this Sonic game has a very special place in my heart. For some reason I remember this game much more than either Sonic 1 or Sonic 2, and had completely forgotten how quickly you can get through the entire game if you just keep running through Read the full article…

The Wraith review

Jake is killed by neighborhood thugs, and returns as a mystical figure (The Wraith) to gain revenge. Starring Charlie Sheen and Randy Quaid. Don’t look too closely at the plot, just enjoy the car racing, hot women and awesome practical effects. There’s some pretty interesting choices in cars and some great early appearances by actors Read the full article…

After Porn Ends review

After Porn Ends, is a documentary that not only examines the lives and careers of some of the biggest names in the history of the adult entertainment industry; but what happens to them after they leave the business. A pretty good look into the lives of pornographic actresses, several of which I actually recognized, which Read the full article…

Swiss Army Man review

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island and given up all hope. Everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes ashore. The two become fast friends, and go on an epic adventure to bring Hank back to the woman of his dreams. I could go into what symbolizes what in this Read the full article…

Iron Fist review

Danny Rand resurfaces 15 years after being presumed dead. Now, with the power of the Iron Fist, he seeks to reclaim his past and fulfill his destiny. By far one of the best Marvel/Netflix series yet, second only to Daredevil. While Jessica Jones wallowed on her past and had no character growth and Luke Cage Read the full article…

The Girl On The Train review

Based on the bestselling thriller, Rachel (Emily Blunt) sees something shocking happen from her daily commute and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds. Insipid and lacking logic in nearly every scene. Didn’t enjoy this film at all, even remotely. Hopefully it doesn’t completely kill Emily Blunt’s career!

Sing review

When an eternally optimistic koala puts on a singing competition to save his failing theater, animals across the city gather to step into the spotlight and chase their dreams! Feels much like The Producers, though in this case the producer is unwittingly a conman, and not as intentional as the two liars from The Producers. Read the full article…

Kong: Skull Island review

When a scientific expedition to an uncharted island awakens titanic forces of nature, a mission of discovery becomes an explosive war between monster and man. As the eighth King Kong movie I was hoping for something a little more ground breaking, but sadly no. We got a nice giant monkey movie in which the giant Read the full article…

X-Men: The Last Stand review

In the climax of the X-Men motion picture trilogy, a ‘cure’ for mutancy threatens to alter the course of history — for the first time, mutants have a choice: retain their uniqueness, though it isolates and alienates them, or give up their powers to fit in. For me personally, this was the best of the Read the full article…

X2: X-Men United review

The X-Men band together to find a mutant assassin who has made an attempt on the President’s life, while the Mutant Academy is attacked by military forces and students taken hostage for a sinister purpose. The best opening scene of any comic books movie to this day, X2 successfully captured the magic that the first Read the full article…

Scratch Monkey review

The novel is set in the distant future, when humans have spread through the galaxy, physically and virtually. We are not alone; we have created a race of AIs, the Superbrights, to administer and expand the virtual side of our presence in the Milky Way. Oshi Adjani works for a Superbright, traveling to worlds where Read the full article…

Trolls review

Join Poppy and Branch in a music-filled original adventure to save their pals from the giant Bergens. With original songs by Justin Timberlake. For a kids movie, there sure was a lot of butts and NC-17 humor that just barely would go over a kid’s head. Great visuals, I’m happy to see that Dreamworks animation Read the full article…

X-Men review

Two mutants come to a private academy for mutants whose resident superhero team must oppose a powerful mutant terrorist organization. It was downright jarring to watch Logan, where both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart were made up to look older than they were, then watch X-Men, where they’re legit 20 years younger. The same awkward Read the full article…

Get Out review

A young African-American man visits his Caucasian girlfriend’s mysterious family estate. This movie has some complicated expectations for it. Directed by Jordan Peel, famously of the comedic duo “Key & Peele”, it’s initially difficult not to expect the same perfectly framed and timely comedy that he’s been doing for nearly his entire public life. With Read the full article…

Star Trek Discovery Casting: Jason Isaacs as Captain of USS Discovery

Deadline says he’s the next captain, which is great news! Loved him in nearly every movie I’ve seen him in from www.startrekbookclub.com/4373/star-trek-discovery-casting-jason-isaacs-as-captain-of-uss-discovery/

The Girl With All The Gifts (movie) review

Six-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close stars in a post-apocalyptic story about a devastating disease that eradicates free will and turns its victims into flesh-eating “hungries.” Despite what Amazon’s blurb says, Glenn Close isn’t the star of this movie, though she does play a pretty big role in the story. There’s a book by the Read the full article…

Harry Potter House Comforters

Sweet & Magical Dreams! Staying up late to keep turning the pages of your favorite Harry Potter adventure is a trap that almost every fan has fallen victim to at one point or another. Just one more page… chapter… book. Now you can wrap yourself up in your favorite Hogwarts house as you snuggle up Read the full article…

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare game review

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare delivers something for every Call of Duty fan with three unique game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies. Delivering a rich and engaging narrative in a setting unlike anything to date in a Call of Duty game, the campaign is a return to the franchise’s gritty, military roots throughout new environments Read the full article…

Harry Potter Snape’s Patronus Lamp

Always. For many Harry Potter fans, the loss of Alan Rickman in early 2016 was devastating. His portrayal of Severus Snape melded with and rewrote the professor we knew from the books. Now, when someone says “Snape,” we see only his face. His Severus Snape will hold a special place in our minds and hearts. Read the full article…

Logan review

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces. Well written movie that never falls into silly comic book tropes Read the full article…

Jackie review

Natalie Portman stars in this powerfully stirring drama as First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, whose faith and strength see her through the death of President John F. Kennedy. Only reason I watched this because I’m a fan of Natalie Portman and it was nominated for an Oscar. It was horribly depressing and sad to watch. Portman Read the full article…

The LEGO Batman Movie review

Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted. Did you enjoy The LEGO Movie? If so, this movie’s for you! If not, it’s just more of the same! Lots of great nods to other great movies and LEGO sets, it’s interesting Read the full article…

Star Trek: Discovery’s Release Date Becomes Slightly Less Murky

Star Trek: Discovery will rev its engines on CBS All Access “sometime late summer, early fall we’re looking at probably right now,” CBS chief Les Moonves told investors today at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference. The series was delayed from the original plan to launch in May. “It’s important to get it Read the full article…

The Pluto Files: The Rise and Fall of America’s Favorite Planet review

When the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History reclassified Pluto as an icy comet, the New York Times proclaimed on page one, “Pluto Not a Planet? Only in New York.” Immediately, the public, professionals, and press were choosing sides over Pluto’s planethood. Pluto is entrenched in our cultural Read the full article…

Doctor Strange review

In Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange, a world-famous neurosurgeon seeking a cure finds powerful magic in a mysterious place known as Kamar-Taj – the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Wasn’t as good in 2d as it was in 3D. Still enjoyable and was happy to watch it Read the full article…

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them review

Magizoologist Newt Scamander’s magical beasts are inadvertently let loose in 1926 New York, where the wizarding community is threatened by exposure to No-Majs bent on eradicating them. Eddie Redmayne has no charisma and I really did not like him in the role of Newt Scamander. In spite of the lead role being played by an Read the full article…

John Wick Chapter 2 review

Legendary hitman John Wick is forced back out of retirement, and this time, he must face off against a shadowy international assassins’ guild and more of the world’s deadliest killers. The first John Wick movie was near perfection in it’s simplicity and execution of a pretty worn out and tired Hollywood revenge trope. They’ve somehow Read the full article…

John Wick review

From the producer of CLASH OF THE TITANS and THE TOWN comes a tale of adrenaline-fueled revenge and redemption. When a retired hit man is forced back into action by a sadistic young thug, he hunts down his adversaries with the skill and ruthlessness that made him an underworld legend. Watched this again because I Read the full article…

Split review

Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan returns with an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind. Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct Read the full article…

It Follows review

After a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, 19-year-old Jay becomes trapped by a vicious curse – “it” is following her, and the only way to save herself is to put others in harm’s way. This was a horrifying movie.

Star Trek Discovery Casting: Terry Serpico, Maulik Pancholy and Sam Vartholomeos.

The cast continues to be revealed over at CBS All Access as production continues to finally roll along on Star Trek: Discovery. Terry Serpico, Maulik Pancholy and Sam Vartholomeos. CBS announced that Serpico will play Admiral Anderson as part of Starfleet’s top brass. That would be a far cry from the actor’s first roll as Read the full article…

Money Monster review

Financial TV host Lee Gates (George Clooney) & his producer Patty (Julia Roberts) work against the clock to unravel a conspiracy. Much like 99 Homes, Money Monster references the great financial collapse of the 2000’s, and just like 99 Homes, it does the event a huge disservice and turns it into a parody. Money Monster Read the full article…

The Razor’s Edge review

An American WWI vet (Bill Murray) undertakes a spiritual quest that takes him from the Himalayas and back to his hometown. Based off a book, this movie was only made because Bill Murray was asked to come back for a second Ghostbusters movie, much like Christopher Reeves and Street Smart to get another Superman film Read the full article…

Don’t Think Twice review

When a member of a popular improv troupe becomes a solo success, the rest of the group start to realize that not everyone is going to make it after all. Watched this because of Keegan-Michael Key, enjoyed it because of Gillian Jacobs, I’ve really missed seeing her on TV every week. Anyone that’s been part Read the full article…

Under The Skin review

A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. It’s in english, but I suggest you turn on the subtitles anyways, I could barely Read the full article…

Run All Night review

Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson) is forced to take on his brutal former boss (Ed Harris) to protect his estranged son and his family. It’s a paint by numbers action movie! Look, 500 cuts for a single chase scene! The dad that has trouble with his son! Drugs! A Hit Read the full article…

Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Epic Series review

In the deepest reaches of space, the fight to save all human life from extinction has begun in this science-fiction adventure that launched the Battlestar Galactica phenomenon, now presented digitally remastered, complete, and uncut! Hopeful for lasting peace following centuries of intense warfare, the Twelve Colonies gather to sign a treaty with their dreaded enemies, Read the full article…

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders review

A DC Classic Original Movie! Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by Batman’s most fiendish foes. The best Batman ’66 movie in DECADES. Also, a pretty swell Batman movie all on it’s own, but holy nostalgia Batman, you really need to be ok with Batman ’66 and it’s style of Read the full article…

The Number 23 review

Jim Carrey in this dark psychological thriller, which revolves around a man who becomes haunted by the fact that he’s reading a book about his own life. It’s refreshing to see that Jim Carry can do serious roles, though I get the feeling he’s more comfortable with the goofier movies. I’m a big fan of Read the full article…

Final Girl review

Veronica, a teenage girl who’s new to town is lured out into the woods by a group of senior boys who hunt and kill girls for sport. Little do they know, Veronica is an assassin-in-training. There’s entirely way too many moving parts in the first act. I have many questions, like: Why do we meet Read the full article…

Self/Less review

A billionaire (Ben Kingsley) undergoes a procedure that transfers his consciousness into young man’s body (Ryan Reynolds) and uncovers a conspiracy with the body’s origin. For a movie that seemed to drop off the radar rather quickly, this turned out to be an entertaining ride. Perhaps no one was ready for yet another ‘Ryan Reynolds Read the full article…

The BFG review

Disney presents a Roald Dahl classic directed by Steven Spielberg. When a young girl crosses paths with a mysterious Giant, she’s launched on an adventure filled with magic, wonder and unexpected friendship in this imaginative tale. For many of us that grew up playing video games, BFG means something significantly different than what The BFG Read the full article…

Dumb and Dumber To review

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their signature roles as Lloyd and Harry in the sequel to the smash hit that took the physical comedy and kicked it in the nuts. Not as good as the first one, but that’s an incredibly high bar to set. Funny but uninspired, ok to watch if it’s the Read the full article…

The Cell review

When Stargher, a serial killer who drowns his victims in torture cells and performs bizarre rituals with their bodies, falls into a coma, the FBI asks Deane to enter the his mind… Jennifer Lopez’s butt saves a girl from drowning by going inside the head of a serial killer. I mock, but I really do Read the full article…

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving review

Two slices of toast, a handful of jellybeans, some pretzels – not quite what comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving dinner. It’s not what Peppermint Patty imagines either, but that’s what she gets when she invites herself over to Charlie Brown’s house for a turkey-day feast. After chastising “Chuck” for providing such a Read the full article…

Now You See Me 2 review

The Four Horsemen return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights with unprecedented stunts and their most impossible heist yet. There’s a few interesting moments here, but the biggest mystery of all is: who wanted to see a sequel to the first “Now You See Me“? Way too Read the full article…

Under The Sun review

A fascinating portrait of one girl and her parents in the year as she prepares to join the Korean Children’s Union on the ‘Day Of The Shining Star’ (Kim Jong-Il’s birthday). Sub titles make movies difficult for me to watch, especial with movies that have such rich imagery that I want to take in, so Read the full article…

Men, Women & Children review

From Director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Juno), Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner and Ansel Elgort star in this powerful story about navigating our complex relationships in an era defined by social media, online exchanges and instant gratification. Well acted movie with some characters that were all screaming out for attention in an ever more Read the full article…
