Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

I have been waiting for this film to come out for quite some time. (I am going to put out a general disclaimer now that I am a die-hard superman fan.) Going into this film I had a couple of concerns. Now, I must admit that my concerns are probably a little deeper than most…

Zoolander No. 2

Zoolander No.2 fails to hit the mark that the first one did with its lovable characters and outrageous story line. The sequel took a premise that was already walking a tight rope and just cut the rope. This movie falls flat with jokes that do not hit the mark at any point in time during…

Deadpool

  Marvel does it again! Since Star Wars, I have been waiting for 2 movies to come out with high hopes that they knock it out the park. I am happy to say that we are half way there. Deadpool is a much anticipated movie among comic book fans around the world. Let me tell…

Dirty Grandpa

As I was browsing some of the other reviews, I realized that this film has consistently received negative ratings. The folks here at Cinema Wise could not disagree more. This film was a wonderful time at the theater with good friends. This is not a movie for anyone who is easily offended, but that was…

Ride Along 2

Another buddy cop comedy, I mean who doesn’t love them. I was looking forward to this sequel to see which direction they took it. I rather enjoyed the first Ride Along. Kevin Hart and Ice Cube have great chemistry and comedic timing on screen together so I was all in for the second installment. Ride…

The Hateful Eight

This is a movie that had leaked out early causing Quentin Tarantino to declare that he wouldn’t release the film. However, after a couple of months and a table read of the script with some celebrities he came back around and it was released. Considering all of the hype around this film, I was pretty…

Daddy’s Home Review

I have been looking forward to another movie with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell since The Other Guys. I thought they had great chemistry on screen which continued in Daddy’s Home. You should know going in exactly what to expect from a movie with Will Ferrell as the lead: some laugh out loud (and at…

Sisters Review

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are at it again with a new comedy! The marking was decent for this comedy. I liked the fact that they did not show you all of the funny parts in the trailers. The movie moved at a nice pace and kept you invested in each character throughout the film….

Star Wars The Force Awakens

  This is probably going to be one of the hardest reviews to write for me alongside the upcoming Batman v Superman because I am such a fan of these properties. But here we go, I am going to do my best. First off, I want to say that you do not need to see…

Krampus Review

Time for another holiday movie! I was really excited about the premise of this film because it’s different than your traditional Christmas movie. I thought that if it was executed correctly, it could be really fun. Well everyone, this one was better than I had expected it to be. I would say that this movie…

The Good Dinosaur Review

This movie is quickly going to become another Pixar classic. This movie was not what I had expected. They dove deeper into the switching of the roles between the human and the dinosaurs than I thought they would. It works well within the story and was not just a gimmick for the film it actually…

Creed Review

This movie is a continuation of a legacy in boxing. We see two sides of the same story, one transitioning from the ring to trainer and the other finding his own way in the world while battling to step out of his father’s shadow. Compelling story telling. Not a new story but a heartwarming tale…
