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…

The Night Before

Everyone get ready for another holiday hijinks movie that actually exceeded my expectations.  I was worried when I walked into the theater that I had already seen all the funny parts in the trailers. I was wrong! The plot is simple: 3 friends are growing apart and decide to carry out their holiday traditions one…

Mockingjay Part 2 Review

This film franchise has been a great movie going experience, and the last film is no different. You can see that splitting this into 2 movies was the right choice. Obviously, you have to cut corners to make a film adaption of a book, but I feel this one stuck to the book almost perfectly….

Spectre Review

If this is really the end to Daniel Craig’s run as James Bond, it could not have played out any better. The completion of his story is an outstanding addition to the 007 collection. The movie has everything going for it: a stand out cast, a rabid fan base and multiple generations of fans.  So…

The Last Witch Hunter Review

This movie is one that opens up a wide world of opportunities. It has a different take on witches and what caused the Black Plague. With that premise, I am along for the ride. The movie has some flashes from past and present which only helps the myth and legend that this film is trying…
