‘Kong: Skull Island’ (2017) Review

Kong Skull Island (2017) Review: The Bigger The Better The eighth wonder of the world is back in theatres this week. I can’t count the number of times King Kong has graced the silver screen, but ‘Kong Skull Island’ is his latest, but not the greatest. This modern take on

‘Logan’ (2017) Review

Logan (2017) Review: A Superhero Movie Your Dad Will Like. 2009 saw the release of ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’. A movie that has been called one of the worst superhero movies of all time. By me. Several times. Despite that movie’s critical failure, there was the release of ‘The Wolverine’ back

‘The Lego Batman Movie’ (2017) Review

The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Review: The Best Batman Movie In Years. From the swinging 60s to the 2000s, Batman has lingered on throughout cinema. As a brand, it’s one of the most successful and versatile I can think of. Movies, video games, television, even music. Batman is one of

‘John Wick Chapter 2’ (2017) Review

John Wick Chapter 2 (2017) Review:John Wick and the Terrible, Murderous, No Good, Very Bloody Day It’s easy to think that originality in Hollywood is dead. Case in point: Lego Batman. A movie based on a line of toys, based on a comic book character. The cynic in me wants

Split (2017) Review: Half Good/Half Bad After you’ve been called the Spielberg of a new generation, it’s hard not to fall below expectations. Still, M.

‘Hidden Figures’ (2016) Review

Hidden Figures (2016) Review: Far Too Light I wasn’t around for the 1960s, but everything I’ve seen from the time period confirms two things. It was a great time for NASA, but a bad time for black people. Worse if you were a black woman. Never do you get a

‘La La Land’ (2016) Review

La La Land (2016) Review: No School Like The Old With 14 Academy Award nominations to its name, it’s hard not to walk into ‘La La Land’ affected by the hype. That hasn’t happened since Jack and Rose sailed the ocean. To Celine Dion no less. La La Land also

‘Monster Trucks’ (2017) Review

Monster Trucks (2017) Review: Must Be 10 Years Or Younger To Enjoy My dad once told me how much he suffered as a parent. Being forced to watch every inane piece of material that captured the attention of my easily swayed mind. Put a superhero in it. A robot. Anything

‘Hacksaw Ridge’ (2016) Review

Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Review: A Movie For Everyone, And No One The world has no shortage of war films. Additionally there is no shortage of world war II films. Yet ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ is just that. A World War II film that in fact, has a story worth telling. I suppose

‘Fences’ (2016) Review

Fences (2016) Review: Denzel As Your Dad After weeks of the holiday season, going from house to house and being surrounded by loved ones, ‘Fences’ comes along with a reminder of the dark side of family. Based on the 1983 play of the same name, ‘Fences’ takes place in 1950s
