Film Reviews

Film Review: “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F.”

Not sure if Murphy will ever revisit Axel Foley again but if this film is any indication, it would be a most welcome return.   

Film Review: “Despicable Me 4”

Illumination Studios continues to equal, if not occasionally surpass, Pixar as the leader in animated films and “Despicable Me 4” is no exception. 

Film Review: “Inside Out 2”

The animation, as to be expected, is brilliantly rendered and the story smart and captivating.  While it doesn’t pack the emotional wallop of “IF,” it’s still a great film to take the fmily to.

Film Review: “MaXXXine”

Director/Writer Ti West has already solidified himself in the horror community, but with “MaXXXine,” he may have solidified himself as a household name

Film Review: “Bad Boys: Ride or Die”

When you’re done doing what I’m doing – humming the “Bad Boys” song in your head – take a trip to the local cinema and say hello to Lowery and Burnett.  You won’t be disappointed.

Film Review: “Bionic”

Overall, “Bionic” is about it $5,999,999 less than Lee Majors.

Film Review: “The Beach Boys”

But despite the ups and downs, the music continues and it is the music that will endear us to the band for as long as we have music.

Film Review # 2: “IF”

Overall, there are not ifs, ands, or buts about it, “IF” is wonderful film by any definition.

Film Review: “Colors of Evil” Red”

Overall, “Colors of Evil: Red,” presuming you don’t mind subtitles or English dubbing, is a good detective story but not quite great.

Film Review: “In the Land of Saints and Sinners”

Overall, “Saints and Sinners” is akin to an old Western with an aging gunslinger who just wants to be left alone but his past choices make that impossible.

Film Review: “Sentinel”

Overall, “Sentinel” should earn every Razzie Award possible.

Film Review: “Atlas”

Overall, AI needs to deem “Atlas” as unworthy and terminate the film with extreme prejudice.

Film Review: “The Idea of You”

Overall, when you’re in the mood for a little romance, “The Idea of You” isn’t a bad way to spend a couple hours in the dark.

 

Film Review #2: “Unfrosted”

Even if you weren’t a kid in the 1960s I think you’ll find “Unfrosted” to be as good as a bowl of Quisp!

Film Review: “In a Violent Nature”

“In a Violent Nature” starts out as an homage and slowly becomes a social commentary like great slashers before it

Film Review: “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes”

Overall, “Kingdom” is visually stunning as the technology to create its ape characters only gets better with time. While its ending poses the basis for a new storyline, it doesn’t have the same creative or enthusiastic vibe as the first three films.

Film Review: “Late Night With the Devil”

Overall, you probably should not watch “Late Night with the Devil” right before you go to bed.

Film Review: “IF”

Overall, the film is a sweet story that will make you laugh and, happily, cry.  With the summer blockbuster season about to begin, “IF” is a true family film that I hope doesn’t get lost at the multiplex. 

Film Review: “Faceless After Dark”

“Faceless After Dark” is a suitable slasher, but is way better as the meta slasher it angles to be

Film Review: “Unfrosted”

“Unfrosted” can be a bit disjointed and a little too campy for its own good, but its laughable absurdity falls into the same level of genius as “The Death of Stalin” and “What We Do in the Shadows.”

Film Review: “The Beekeeper”

Overall, “The Beekeeper” is flat out boring, even though it does toss out a somewhat surprising twist towards the end. It would be more fun to throw oneself on top of a beehive than to watch “The Beekeeper.”

Theater Review: “ROCKY”

The cast is strong, especially Mr. Starlin and Ms. Hall, who, rather then doing an impression of the original film’s actors, give the characters a sweetness and vulnerability that extends throughout the show.

Theater Review: “Clue – A New Comedy”

The original movie featured a dream team of character actors (Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn), but the current touring cast is up for the task as well.
