Central Intelligence - Movie Review

Central Intelligence - Movie ReviewGuilty pleasure.  That’s exactly what Central Intelligence, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart, is when it’s all said and done.  This is a buddy-cop movie that is as stupid as it is harmless and funny.  Critics will get off on hating it.  Audiences will laugh ...

Now You See Me 2 - Movie Review

now-you-see-me-2-100Who would have ever imagined that a little magic-meets-heist film that virtually came and went with little fanfare a few years ago would warrant not only a sequel, but one positioned smack-dab at the apex of the summer release season?  But that’s exactly what has ...

The Conjuring 2 - Movie Review

The Conjuring 2 - Movie ReviewHe’s baaack!  Thank the Maker for director James Wan because he knows how to navigate a film through one hell of a frightmare, complete with creaks and groans and ghouls and dark, dark corners.  Everything you expect to see in a scary movie he inexplicable  ...

Warcraft - Movie Review

Warcraft - Movie ReviewI have been a supporter of the vision of writer/director Duncan Jones since his auspicious debut in 2009.  With two unique films, Moon and Source Code, he gave me hope for the future of cinematic science fiction.  His work is compelling and evokes a time when   ...

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping - Movie Review

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping - Movie ReviewNothing is sacred and no one is off limits to the jabs taken in Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, a mockumentary-style send up to the extravagance of modern pop stars and the hollow music documentaries that seem all the rage these days.  Even The Lonely Island ...

X-Men: Apocalypse - Movie Review

X-Men: Apocalypse - Movie ReviewBryan Singer’s entry into the super hero genre at the turn of this century should never be underestimated.

The Angry Birds Movie - Movie Review

Angry Birds - Movie ReviewWelcome to 2016’s initial summer line-up.  It is a wacky season where even popular mobile apps get their own movie.  Ready for August yet?  Thought you might be.  And with all these green pigs stealing eggs from wingless birds, well, it’s really not a fun place for  ...

Money Monster - Movie Review

Money Monster- Movie ReviewIt's a little known fact that Sidney Lumet's '70s-era thrillers Network and Dog Day Afternoon had a love child. That offspring has since come of age and is gracing theaters in the form of Money Monster, a taut fast-paced facsimile of its progenitors. Stocked with the same ...

Miles Ahead - Movie Review

Miles Ahead - Movie ReviewMiles Davis was a man of many, many complications.  If anything else, that’s the wild takeaway from writer and director Don Cheadle’s impressionistic film about the world’s coolest trumpeter.  Miles Ahead is, at once, bold and creative as it mixes the 1950s, the 1960s  ...
