Film Review: “The Book Club”

There is nothing more enjoyable than seeing professionals at the top of their craft and “The Book Club” does not disappoint. 

Film Review: “Deadpool 2”

Just sit back and enjoy the ride.  Like its predecessor, “Deadpool 2” is one of the best comic book films ever.

Cannes Film Festival Review: “Astro”

An entertaining film, “Astro” benefits from a strong cast and firm direction.

Film Review: “Avengers: Infinity War”

“Infinity War” is an ambitious project, 10 years in the making, that shouldn’t be missed, but it also raises the stakes even higher for when the Avengers assemble again in 2019

Film Review: “I Feel Pretty”

The film is well cast, with Schumer striking all the right notes.  This is not the raunchy Amy Schumer you may be familiar with.  This version is a little tamer, but still fun loving.

Film Review: “Super Troopers 2”

While “Super Troopers 2” may scratch that itch fans have been feeling for over a decade and a half, that itch won’t go away because of how unfulfilling this film is

Film Review “Aardvark”

The whole cast was fantastic and I really dug the film for the first half and then it took a nice dive in the second act and closed out disappointing for me.

Film Review “Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare”

“Truth of Dare” is bland, boring and not scary at all.

Film Review: “Rampage”

There’s fun to be had in “Rampage” as long as you understand that this is a bad movie

Film Review: “Chappaquiddick”

A solid film that keeps you guessing on the facts, “Chappaquiddick” is an unbiased attempt to tell the story everyone thinks they know.  The story is helped along by solid direction and a cast that embodies more than imitates the characters.

Film Review: “Blockers”

The fun part here are the parents, especially pro wrestler Cena, who is hilarious as he is large. Mann is also strong as the mother who is afraid to let her child leave and Barinholtz as a father trying to reconnect with a daughter he clearly underestimated.

Film Review: “Isle of Dogs”

The film’s sentimentality and warmth is thoroughly earned. On a basic level, “Isle of Dogs” is Wes Anderson’s straightforward love letter to man’s best friend

Film Review: “All I Wish”

The script, from first time director Susan Walter, is strong and her direction keeps the film moving with very little slow spots.  A fine freshman debut.

4DX Experience & Film Review “Ready Player One”

As we are watching the action unfold in “Ready Player One”, the score switches to cues from “Back to the Future” and you get chills up and down following by the audience screaming “Whoa!!!” That is a great feeling in a movie theater and that is how you know when you have a winner on your hands.

4DX Experience Review “Pacific Rim: Uprising”

The sequel doesn’t have the heart or the visuals to match the first film but ends up being a fun popcorn flick.

Film Review: “Midnight Sun”

It’s set-up like some predictable coming-of-age tale with a terrible “Boy in the Plastic Bubble” twist lurking on the horizon. Thankfully it doesn’t play out like that
