Onward

After viewing the trailer for this film, I still wasn’t sure what the movie was about. The trailer seemed messy and left me unsure of what to expect. However, when I got into the film, I really enjoyed my viewing experience. The story is set in a suburban fantasy world, and all the different creatures…

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

I was finally able to see this film when it was released on Amazon Prime. This was a film that I tried to find tickets to for the limited showing in theaters but they were sold out the second they were posted. I really enjoyed the first film and I enjoy most of Kevin Smith’s…

The Invisible Man

This film was one I was looking forward to seeing as it is a modern take on a classic movie monster. The Invisible Man is one of those characters and films that took cinema to new heights. However, I was worried that the film would be too on the nose as the trailers appeared to…

Sonic The Hedgehog

This movie had some really bad press right out of the gate. They had to go back and redo the entire look of Sonic after the first trailer had dropped. Thankfully they did because the final look of Sonic was so much better and really brought this character to life. Walking into the theater, I…

Birds of Prey

This film was one I was skeptical about because of the trailers and marketing. In the trailers, Birds of Prey appeared to be a film that was all over the place and messy. The trailers each showed very different tones from the first to the last. So, I went into the film with my expectations…

Bad Boys for Life

Bad Boys for Life is another great installment to the franchise. It does well with keeping the same tone as its predecessors, as well as providing some new life into the film. The film relies heavily on the chemistry of Martin Lawrence and Will Smith. If you are a fan of the franchise this is…

Just Mercy

This film was filled with so much heart and soul. Going into the theater, I was wondering how it was going to go as none of the marketing made me feel like I absolutely had to see the film. Well, it turns out that Just Mercy is a great film inspired by a true story. …

Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker

I had low expectations of this film after the experience I had with Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I felt that there were plot points that were set up in The Force Awakens that were completely ignored and some that were actually negated. It was a big task for J.J. Abrams to come back in…

Knives Out

Judging by the trailer, Knives Out seems to have a Clue feeling to it. However, instead of being upfront and over the top with comedy, it just peppers it in as needed. It is a classic plot of a who done it. The tone is very different than what is portrayed in the trailers and…

The Good Liar

The Good Liar is a film that is paced very slowly and is dialog driven, but will keep you interested from the opening to the close. The story lies heavily on the performances of its 2 leads in Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren. The film follows a con man as he works his next job….

Terminator: Dark Fate

The general movie-going audience is probably done with this franchise after being burnt by the last couple outings. The franchise as a whole has had a hard time finding what direction they want to take their property. I believe that Terminator: Dark Fate is a step in the right direction. The film takes it back…
