The Mummy Review

So, as you enter the theater, sliding into the comfortable new leather recliner movie seats (if you have not experienced this, it is certainly a must), eating your large popcorn with extra butter and nice cold drink to watch The Mummy, keep this in mind: action and special effects first, plot and substance last. But it still makes for one hell of a ride; for the summer that is.

Wonder Woman Review

Sometimes it takes a strong woman to help a franchise rise from the ashes of death. Wonder Woman has help breathe life into the DC movie franchise that was once flat lining on the death bed of comic book film lore. When the credits started to role, members of the audience were clapping, ensuring that Wonder Woman will grace the silver screen once more. D.C. welcome to the party, we all have been waiting.

Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant follows the formula of its predecessor, just when everything is quiet and moving along at a comfortable pace, all “hell breaks loose”. And when things go wrong, they go terribly wrong. There is another breed of alien, not fully develop but just as ferocious. It seems to set the mood and the anticipation of what’s to come. But, unfortunately what’s to come is a mix bag of intellectual hyperbole, kung fu fighting androids, and blood and guts. If you are of fan of Prometheus, then this is for you. But, regrettably, I am not.

Funkadelic Ride of Alien Proportions

Loaded with an awesome mix tape vol. 2 of seventies hit songs, Guardians of the Galaxy takes you on an intergalactic roller coaster ride. From Parliament to Earth, Wind, and Fire, to the Looking Glass to Cheap Trick, you are truly entrenched in the movie like that of a “quiet storm” radio night as you go into a hypnotic state of reminisce while listening to your favorite songs.

Sleight Review 2017

After seeing the previews and walking into the theater, I did question whether I was “hoodwinked” into watching a live action version of the early 2000’s cartoon, Static Shock about a teenage boy who was exposed to mutagen gas during a gang fight that gave him electromagnetic powers. But the film is far from that. It is gritty and heart felt attempt of making a movie with a super heroic theme; ordinary

The Fate of the Furious Review

The Fate of The Furious keeps up with the franchise brethren with the abundance of car chases, gun fights, hand to hand combat, and a ton of explosions. But, I must admit, although it is very unrealistic by ordinary standards, in the world of The Fast and The Furious franchise, it was certainly entertaining and stands up as one of the best in the series.

Logan Review 2017

From the opening scene, I knew that this was not the Wolverine of years past, but a brand-new era. The body count was high and the savagery was endless. Body parts and blood splatter were plentiful. As the metal band, The Drowning Pool, so poignantly stated in their 2001 metal anthem, “Let the Bodies Hit the Floor”.
