Blockers

This Film was one that had a very funny premise and with a cast that looked like we could get something special. However, when it came down to the end credits in the theater, it felt a little short and was just another middle of the road comedy that missed on many levels. I wanted…

Ready Player One

Ready Player one was a film that I was trying to avoid seeing very much advertisement for as I wanted to go in with a no expectation or knowledge of the story. It was the first film in a long time that was a pure movie experience. I have not been able to do this…

Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider was in need of a reboot in both the gaming world as well as on the big screen. We got an amazing reboot of the game that landed with its audience and I believed could easily be transferred to the big screen if all the pieces started to align. The first bit of…

Black Panther

Black Panther is a film that I was really looking forward to because one of my favorite actors was finally stepping out of a heroic role and into a role as a villain. In addition, I did enjoy our first look at the Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War so I wanted to see…

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

This film is one that I wasn’t sure we needed as the original was such a big part of my childhood. But, as more information was released about the film it gauged my interest. For example, the fact that this isn’t a direct sequel or a reboot of the original peaked my interest more and…

Pitch Perfect 3

Here we are for a third time around Pitches. I don’t know about you but there has been something special about these films for me. They are always a good time in the theater and they seem to grow every time I see them. This is something that could have easily gone stale with the…

Daddy’s Home 2

I was surprised that this film was coming out. I thought that the first one ended on a good note and we had explored all we needed to with these characters. However, it seems that there was a need to extend the story. Usually, I like the combo of Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, but…

Thor Ragnarok

It’s time for the third installment for the Thor series. The Thor series has been underwhelming up to this point but after all of the marketing I have seen, it seems they have brought new life into this franchise. They brought it all together in this film! Think of them having a melting pot and…

IT

When I heard that they were remaking It, I wasn’t really all that thrilled. I never thought that this was a movie that I would be rushing out to see in the theater. However, my tone changed the more I saw from the film. The first thing to interest me was that it is relatively…

Dunkirk

Dunkirk is a great historical moment. It was nice to see this story brought to the big screen. But, to be completely honest, I wanted more from this film. There was no sense of attachment to the characters in this film and we only got a glimpse at the actual event. The film was flat…

War for the Planet of the Apes

War for the Planet of the Apes is the third and what seems to be the final movie in the series as we finish of the story of Caesar. While this is the final chapter it is not the most action packed of the films. The film turns out to be more of a character…
