Dunkirk Review

With a few lines of prologue and a lack of any traditional exposition, Dunkirk immediately hurls the audience into the tense atmosphere that encapsulated the aforementioned beach during one of the Allied Forces’ lowest moments...

Atomic Blonde Review

Charlize Theron cinematic presence cannot be denied.  She is very convincing as a seductive but deadly agent trying to figure who to trust.  Her first on screen appearance defines her character as you witness her banged up, black and blue bruise body, emerging from a bathtub full of ice.  Then slowly turning towards the camera, with a badly blacken eye enjoying a cigarette after a seemingly hard day of work.  Theron looks like a model straight off the cover of vogue, but fights like cornered salivating Pitbull. She has ice in her veins, but has a lukewarm place in her heart for the less fortunate or for the ones she truly cares about.  But if you cross her, the outcome is the same – badly beaten or death.  Theron’s performance combined with the intense action scenes overcomes the complicated story line.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

As a potluck of intellectual originality, Spider-Man:  Homecoming gives you a lot to “chew on”.  From Captain America’s hilarious cameos, to the introduction of an old character as new that gives you that “ah ha” moment. The film captures the essence of naive teenage Peter Parker becoming Spider-Man, enticing you to fall in love with the character all over again.  It finishes with a bang and has you craving for more, anxiously awaiting the next installment.

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 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.
