Film Review: “King Cohen”

This film covers pretty much Cohen’s filmography, focusing more on the most popular films, especially “Q” and “The Stuff.”  Interviews with fellow filmmakers, crew members and actors such as Michael Moriarty and Eric Roberts gives the viewer every possible look at Cohen’s process. 

Film Review “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”

This is a fun movie that has a really good heart and even though a little cheesy but you leave the theater smiling (and a little teary).

Film Review “Leave No Trace”

Although her story lacks the complexity of “Winter’s Bone,” Granik, who co-wrote the screenplay with Anne Rosellini, also a producer and writer on “Winter’s Bone,” has created something that will haunt you for a while after leaving the theater.

Film Review: “Skyscraper”

Full of some amazing set-pieces and some serious “jump in your seat” moments, “Skyscraper” is a film that rides capably on the back of Dwayne Johnson.  Will possesses both Willis’ John McClain’s personality while also embodying the caring about of the situation that Newman’s architect and McQueen’s fire chief did in “The Towering Inferno.” 

Film Review: “Eating Animals”

Overall, there is nothing revolutionary about what “Eating Animals” has to say about family farms. It’s a tradition/business that has been vanishing at an alarming rate for a few decades now.

Film Review “Ant-Man and the Wasp”

Bigger and funnier! Suffers from a weak villain but supporting cast steals it! So much awesome! Stay for the first post credit scene for sure!

Film Review: “Ant-Man and the Wasp”

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” doesn’t ever really take itself too seriously and concludes as a decent dose of sloppy Summer fun

Film Review “Mountain”

It’s a challenge to label “Mountain” as a documentary because there isn’t much to it that provokes conversation or opinions about the subject matter after the credits start to roll.

Film Review: “Uncle Drew”

The film is about more than basketball.  It’s about family and friendship, and when those values are discussed the film jumps to another level.  And basketball fans in the know will enjoy the humor

Film Review: “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”

Unlike its predecessor, it’s humorless, boring and lacking any genuine emotion

Film Review: “Tag”

There’s a lot of manic energy in “Tag,” sometimes culminating into some funny chase sequences and absurd action pieces

Film Review “Incredibles 2”

“Incredibles 2” runs nearly two hours, which is a lot for kids to stick with. My little one left the theater yawning (as did I). Second act definitely picks up some steam but too late I felt.

Film Review: Hotel Artemis”

There are a few things that work in “Hotel Artemis,” and in much better hands, it would have been an unforgettable film

Film Review “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” is a fantastic trip back into the world of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”. Get your tissue box ready cause this one is guaranteed to hit those heart strings!

Film Review: “Oceans 8”

Gary Ross is a fine director who knows how to keep the action moving, but here his script has conspired against him.

Film Review: “Solo: A Star Wars Story”

Set, in my mind, about 10 years before the events we know as EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE or, simply STAR WARS, “Solo” is an origin story in the true sense of the word.
