Terminator Genisys Review

A new timeline is unexpectedly created after John Connor (played by Jason Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (played by Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect his mother, Sarah (played by Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator. Originally a frightened waitress, the Sarah of this time is a skilled fighter armed with a Terminator guardian (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) and completely aware of what’s going on.  Reese must now change his original…

Magic Mike Review

Mike Lane (played by Channing Tatum) retired from stripping three years ago, finally starting his own custom design business as he was aspiring to do in the original. He’s been working hard, but the former “male entertainer” finds himself missing performing on stage.  He also misses the friends he made among his fellow dancers, the Kings of Tampa.  He meets up with them again as they travel to a stripper…

Jurassic World – The Best Sequel Thus Far!

Last year was a pretty good year to be Chris Pratt. He really shot to the Hollywood A-list fast and into America’s hearts thanks to the successes of The Lego Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy.   He’s become so beloved that adding him to the revered Jurassic Park franchise has been generally welcome. I still remember the original film when I was a kid. It’s one of my favorite movies…

Spy – Funniest Movie of the Year!

Admittedly I am typically not a Melissa McCarthy fan. Sometimes I find her funny, but most of the time she’s too over the top. Her films were beginning to become predictable as well. She always has to team up with another star as if she can’t hold her own.. So I got accustomed to expecting that from her, but sometimes trying something over and over again will eventually strike the…

Insidious 3 Review

It’s difficult to scare me when it comes to horror films.  There’s a very short list of them that I consider well done and most of those are over 20 years old and include zombies (Thank you, George A. Romero).  That said, I thought the first Insidious was creepy enough. I actually don’t even recall seeing the second one but this one seemed promising. Summary: After teen Quinn Brenner (played…

San Andreas

It’s a good year to be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson! Though to be honest, I feel like I’ve been saying that for a few years in a row. On the heels of the big budget, massively successful juggernaut that was Furious 7 (still the highest grossing film of the year right now), this offers up yet another expensive action excursion of a different persuasion. It’s one we’ve all see before,…

Upon seeing the trailer I had no idea what this would be about. I’ve never been to a Disneyworld or Disneyland theme park (yes, tragic) so I didn’t even know it was named after that section of the park until one of the attorneys I work for filled me in while we were chatting about it. Even still, the Disney name alone sold me on giving this one a shot–and…

Mad Max – A Mad Good Time!!

I’d been looking forward to this one. I’m a Tom Hardy fan and most of the time he signs on for some pretty good stuff! Though he’s survived this dystopian society on his own, Mad Max (played by Tom Hardy) is captured.  Taken prisoner by a bunch that is about as uncivilized as it gets, he manages to escape their clutches through a massive car chase. He reluctantly teams up…

Avengers: Age of Ultron Review

In a year absolutely packed with Blockbusters, the king of them all is undoubtedly Avengers 2. Furious 7 has already cracked the billion-dollar barrier in record time (17 days) and we aren’t even halfway through the year yet. Avengers 2 will undoubtedly join it and set a new record in the process. I’ll give it 14-15 days considering it has the 3D markup going for it. Speaking of which, the…

Unfriended Review

This one sort of stood out to me because it seemed like it wanted to try something a little different in the horror genre, taking it in a new direction. I was also curious about Shelley Hennig. Though she is not my favorite on Teen Wolf, she has been a breakout star. She appears to be carving out a niche for herself in the horror movie market, from starring in…
