Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep picks up where The Shining left off and we see what happens to Danny Torrance after the events of The Shining and into his adult life. Danny comes across a young girl and a haunting tale begins. While the story mostly revolves around his run in with a Cult known as The True…

Zombieland: Double Tap

Zombieland: Double Tap is 10 years after the first film and you jump right back into the world without missing a beat. The mix of comedy in the genre is pitch perfect while expanding the story in a way that feels natural and progressive to an overall story. The film is funny and has a…

Gemini Man

Gemini Man is a call back to the classic 90’s action film. The story is pretty straight forward but still interesting and keeps your attention throughout the whole film. The movie plays to its strength in relying on the charm and wit of its leading man Will Smith. The film uses de-aging technology and throughout…

Joker

Joker is worth its weight in gold. It is a wonderful take on a villain that most people in the world are familiar with. From a character that has no real origin story in the comics, comes a very well written and grounded showing of a tale that might have been. With no Batman in…

It Chapter Two

It Chapter 2 was probably the most anticipated movie of the year for Cinema Wise. This conclusion was a must see after the first film. After the release of the first trailer this film looked like it was going to expand and exceed its predecessor.  However, this is not the case and lives up to…

Angel Has Fallen

This film is exactly what you expect. It’s an action movie that is just right down the middle.  The movie has some great action and the plot is something we have seen multiple times before. However, it is done well and worth the viewing whether or not you are a fan of the series. There…

The Peanut Butter Falcon

Lately I have been disappointed in most of the films I have been seeing. That is not the case with Peanut Butter Falcon. This is a great film. It is such a simple story that drives the film along at a great pace and keeps your interest the entire time. In addition, it makes you…

Ready Or Not

Ready or Not was a movie that I had seen the trailer for and thought – this will either be really good or really bad. As a result, I let some time pass by to see if I heard any positive or negative chatter. I went in to the film with an open mind and…

Good Boys

I really thought this film was going to be great and have a little more than dick and ass jokes. I was wrong. The film relies on these jokes heavily. Despite the elementary humor, there are also some really sweet moments that could have made the movie better if they were presented just a little…

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

I remember reading these books when I was in elementary school. The library was always out of these books so you would have to put your name on a waiting list and wait for your turn. This film has a lot of nostalgia for me. Going into this film, I was excited to see what…

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

The best part of the Fast and the Furious gets an outing of their own. This is new breath blown yet again into a dying franchise. With all of the drama and bickering that has plagued the cast these past couple years, it’s nice to see something positive come out. Hobbs and Shaw is the…

Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood

Well, I’m not the biggest Quentin Tarantino fan. His films seem to be big hits or big misses for me. This film was one I was interested in for the simple fact of an amazing cast and it has the mansion murders involved. Well, the film just seemed to have no idea what the story…
