Warcraft

Warcraft has been a movie that could be the turning point in making video game properties into great franchises in Hollywood. So, needless to say, this film had a lot riding on its shoulders. When it came down to opening night and the stage lights are bright, Warcraft seemed to stumble under the pressure. Looks…

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Well, we are back again turtle fans, so let’s go ninja, go ninja, go! The second time around is an improvement on the first and builds on the story. Now, these Turtles are nothing like the ones I grew up with in the 90’s. These turtles are a little sillier, but it works in the…

X-Men : Apocalypse

  This franchise is back on its feet and these films just keep getting better and better. Even with them still phasing out the old cast and bringing in the younger cast they have found a wonderful way that works, services the overall story and develops the characters. The film is part of a series…

Neighbors 2

Here we go with another comedy sequel that will leave you with no expression and no feeling but that you wished you had done something better with your time. I’m disappointed in this film because I usually enjoy these actors and actresses. But, I probably should have expected this. Neighbors 2 is a duplication of…

Captain America: Civil War

Is Marvel hitting another one out of the park? It would seem so but let us dive into this film and see how it comes out on the other side. This film is without a doubt visually stunning and the story is beautiful. If you are reading other reviews, you might have seen some Marvel…

Keanu

This film is definitely not for everyone. My only suggestion for this film is: know what you are getting yourself into. If you are not a Key and Peele fan, or if you get easily offended, you might want to skip this one. However, if you are on the other side of that coin, this…

The Jungle Book

This is what I call a live action remake! This is the 1967 classic story made for a new generation of children. This film is firing on all cylinders and a replica of what every one of these remakes should be like. It’s the perfect blend of the classic story and a new twist to…

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…
