Film Reviews

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. 

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.

Theatre Review “RENT: 20th Anniversary Tour” Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Orlando FL

Theater Review: “On Your Feet” – Kansas City

The show rides along on the mighty shoulders (and voices) of Mauricio Martinez and Christie Prades who, as Emilio and Gloria, share the majority of the vocal duties.  Both are well cast and their chemistry is evident.
