Rocketman

This film is not what I expected going into the theater. I went in looking for a biopic and ended up sitting through a rock musical. After readjusting my expectations, this film was interesting to sit through. However, I was taken out at times by the placement of the song as it seemed to cut…

Men in Black: International

Going in I was not expecting too much from this film. Just colorful characters, gadgets and cool aliens. That is exactly what you are getting from Men in Black: International. The film brings you right back into the world that we have come to know from the previous films. The film does a great job…

Brightburn

Brightburn is a play on one of our oldest and best stories around. Alien from another planet crash lands, is raised by humans and grows to become our great savior. Ringing any bells? Well this is that story flipped on its head. What if the Alien wasn’t here to save us but is something darker?…

Aladdin

A solid outing yet again for Disney films. Aladdin was one of the remakes I was very skeptical of as soon as I saw the casting. For me this was one of Robin Williams best performances and it was very hard for me to imagine anyone else taking on this role,even with the caliber of…

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

This series came out of nowhere and gave new birth to Keanu Reeves as an action star. With this new chapter in the John Wick story, we get more action and great stunt choreography.  John Wick: Chapter 3 picks up right where we left off in John Wick: Chapter 2 and just runs with it….

Detective Pikachu

Do we really need a Pokémon movie? Most of the movie-going audience let this one slip by without a second glance. However, the adults who lived through the rise of the Pokémon craze and the die-hard fans will give the movie a shot. Detective Pikachu is shot very well and has some great special effects….

Avengers Endgame

This is the end of an era. It took 22 films and 10 years to finish this story. Avengers Endgame has a lot of ground to cover. The film has a refreshing and new perspective on an old movie plot device. It is shot beautifully and has a stellar cast that truly drives the film….

Pet Sematary

After watching It, I was really looking forward to the remake of Pet Sematary. The original 1989 version was probably one of the scariest movies I had seen growing up, but this film just butchers the story. It feels rushed throughout the whole story and I feel that it glosses over some of the more…

Us

Jordan Peele does it again, quickly becoming a new master of the Horror/ Thriller genre. Us is a must see in theaters. See it before everyone spoils the multiple twists and turns that this film holds. The film is told through a series of flashbacks and present-day events. We follow a family through their summer…

Shazam!

This was an unexpected and well needed win for DC Comics and Warner Brothers Studios.  Shazam is full of life and laughs from beginning to end. The film delivers on a character that in the past has been used as a secondary character in the animated films. Shazam has something in store for the whole…

Captain Marvel

With another outing for Marvel studios comes Captain Marvel. This is the studio’s first outing with a female lead superhero and they deliver yet again a solid motion picture. This film is world building for the future and as well as the past in the way that the film is told. The story is a…

Aquaman

This is a movie that I have been waiting on since first seeing Jason Momoa in Batman Vs Superman and Justice League. This is an example of taking a character that was a laughing joke in most comics and on TV, and making him a force to be reckoned with. Since I saw the first…

Spider-Man into the Spider- Verse

This is a Spider-Man story that I was fairly familiar with and I loved the new twist. With multiple universes and multiple Spider-Men, it could be a daunting tale to tell and keep a general audience following the story. This is also the first Spider-Man story where we are not following Peter Parker. So, we…

Creed II

This film is the a great way to continue this film franchise. From the first trailer drop it had fans hooked. It was the return of a villian from the franchise but a great way to bring him back. Drago, a son on a mission to reclaim glory for his family and Creed, a son…

Fantastic Beast: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Welcome back to the magical wizarding world! This film must extend the world some and get more in depth into the characters that were first introduced. The additions in cast are one that should propel this film in a positive way. As someone who grew up with the Harry Potter story, I was more than…

Halloween

Halloween is a soft reboot of the series.  It is picking up 40 years after the events on Halloween night in 1978. I cannot think of a better way to reboot this series. The film is great. It picks up with Laurie Strode dealing with Post Traumatic Stress for over 40 years. We see the…

Venom

It was nice to see one of my favorite comic book characters get a second chance. I was on board with this film from the announcement of Tom Hardy in the lead as Eddie Brock. He is one of my favorite actors working today and I really can not think of a performance I did…

The Predator

This movie was a giant slap in the face to this property. The worst in the franchise thus far! I wonder what has made this property so hard to nail down with such a solid idea and a great premise for future films. This film started off in a good direction but at every turn…

A Simple Favor

This film was a wonderful surprise. From the first trailer I was all in so I ended up not following anything more after that because I was going to see the film regardless and to be honest I did not want to spoil anything. The film ended up being different than what was advertised. Thrill…

Equalizer 2

Here is a follow up to a movie that I had enjoyed. It is hard not to enjoy a movie with Denzel Washington as your star. The film is a great stand alone film and you will need no prior knowledge going into the film. There are minor references to the first film but it…

Ant-Man and the Wasp

I was looking forward to another heist film set with superheroes. The first Ant-Man was such a change of pace and I love how within the Marvel studios they  have seemed to make some of their films sub-genre films. For example, Ant-Man was a heist film, Winter Soldier was a political Thriller. This follow up…

Incredibles 2

This is a Film that should have gotten a  green light way before we ever got a Cars 2 or 3 or that planes one they did. We pick up with our Incredible family as superheroes have been outlawed. Through a series of events Elastigirl is pick to help change that. We watch as Mr….

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was a movie that all kids (now adults) from the 90’s should have been looking forward to. It was the follow up to a movie that brought life back into the Jurassic Park franchise. Following the first Jurassic World, I was excited to see where they could take these new characters….

Deadpool 2

The Merc with the mouth is back for his second stand alone movie and I could not be more excited to dive into the fun. The first film was so refreshing and new and showed how much fun you can have with a character like this. Well, Deadpool 2 continues with the same feel of…
