The Purge Election Year Review

The Purge changes a lot of lives, mostly for the worst if you’re not from the right part of town.  Senator Charlie Roan (played by Elizabeth Mitchell) knows this all too well as she is the sole survivor of her family’s massacre on this fateful night many years ago.  Now in a position to become the President of the US, she is determined to put an end to this grizzly…

Central Intelligence – Non stop laughs!

As a former victim of high school bullying, Bob Stone (played Dwayne Johnson) has made drastic changes to his life.  Now a lethal and incredibly fit CIA agent, he ends up seeking help from his former classmate and ally Calvin Joyner (played by Kevin Hart) to stop a plot that could put the whole country at risk.   Review:  Though the quality of the comedy in this movie doesn’t necessarily…

Batman v Superman

March 23, 2016

So while the trailer didn’t excite me, this film is still one of my most anticipated for the year. It’s been a long time coming. One thing in its favor is that I came in with expectations low, so the film itself had a lot of opportunity to exceed them. I would say that it did. And I’ll tell you now. Once the credits start rolling, if you want to…


Allegiant Review – Because Splitting Final Books into Two Movies is the New Black!

Admittedly I have only read the first Divergent book.  So beyond that I can’t attest to how accurate this movie adaptation is.  All I know is because this movie had to follow the Harry Potter trend like the other popular book to movie adaptations, we have to endure two “final” movies of book three.  This time though, instead of calling it part 1 and part 2 they’ve named the last…

Deadpool – Superhero movies may never be the same!

I was looking forward to the chance to really get to know this character. I admittedly don’t follow the comics, but you’ll be hard-pressed not to spot a Deadpool cosplayer at any anime or comic convention you attend nowadays. He’s beloved for all the right and wrong reasons by fans. After finding love with a woman who is the “right kind of crazy” for him, a mercenary (played by Ryan…

The Revenant – Leo’s Oscar Time is NOW

I’ve been a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio for 20 years.  After his performance in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and a slew of other greats I remain salty that he still lacks an Oscar win. He’s had some good roles and he’s had some great roles.  I even like some of the films that get hated on a lot (see The Beach–I dare you show me a better shark bite scene). …

Mockingjay Part 2 Review

November 23, 2015

And now it’s time to say goodbye to Kat and company. Granted, the last book wasn’t my favorite by any means, but that doesn’t mean the film franchise can’t do its best to go out with a bang. To be honest, the hype has seemed a little mild building up to part two of this conclusion. It’s like the upcoming Star Wars film has booked every seat on the year-end…
