‘Doctor Strange’ (2016) Review

Doctor Strange (2016) Review: Just Weird Enough 8 years ago Robert Downey Jr. strapped on a high tech red and gold suit and introduced the world to Iron Man. Now, 13 films later, Doctor Strange gives us a movie that continues to expand a universe, that already has gods, aliens,

‘Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween’ (2016) Review

Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) Review: The Horror. Maybe once it was a good idea. Dress up like the matriarch of a black household, hire hard working black actors and actresses, and write stories that appeal to a group of people who’ve historically been under and misrepresented. On

‘The Girl On The Train’ (2016) Review

The Girl On The Train (2016) Review: Gone Girl: Lifetime Edition ‘The Girl On The Train’ is a movie, based on a book, that’s about not judging a book by it’s cover. It tells the stories of three women, each at different stages of their lives. Rachael, the girl on

‘Keeping Up With The Joneses’ (2016) Review

Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) Review: They’re Boring. I don’t know what it is but spy comedies never seem to do it for me. I think on the face of it, movies making fun of spies, or just playing with the espionage genre could be great. There are plenty

‘The Accountant’ (2016) Review

The Accountant (2016) Review: Miscalculated With a name like ‘The Accountant’, it’s hard to imagine anything but hyper aggressive keyboard clacking, horn rimmed glasses, and a job that few like. While Ben Affleck’s character in this film is an actual accountant, his job description entails more than the occasional audit,

‘Deepwater Horizon’ (2016) Review

Deepwater Horizon (2016) Review: Disaster Done Right Ripped from the headlines of the bygone days of 2010, ‘Deepwater Horizon’ reimagines the tragic events of April 20, 2010, in which the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, causing the deaths of 11 crewmen and the worst oil spill in US history.

‘Queen Of Katwe’ (2016) Review

Queen of Katwe (2016) Review: Captivating and Conscious At the beginning of ‘Queen of Katwe’, my worst fears about the film seemed to have become a reality. This story of a Ugandan girl turned international chess champion had been translated into a watered down feel good Disney movie. One with

‘The Magnificent 7’ (2016) Review:

The Magnificent 7 (2016) Review: Baddest Quips In The West. After a more than disappointing summer movie season, I can’t help but feel a little bit cheated. While bright spots like ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Star Trek Beyond’ both had moments that were joy inducing, but on the whole,

‘When The Bough Breaks’ (2016) Review

When The Bough Breaks (2016) Review: Mild Suburban Nightmare. Sometimes, when reviewing a movie, you have to take into account its quality, versus how much it entertained you. Several times I’m sitting in the cinema and a movie that I know has paper thin characters, exposition a mile long, obvious

‘Kubo And The Two Strings’ (2016) Review

Kubo And The Two Strings (2016) Review: Music To My Eyes Sometimes, especially in the summer, film’s status as an art form tends to be forgotten. I guess it’s because when we think of art, we think of it as something that you have to “get” before you can relate
