How I Became A Superhero – Review

If you expect to find out how anybody became a superhero, don’t bother. The misleading title aside, which is the same as the novel, written by Gérald Bronner, this movie has nothing interesting to offer. The characters are bland, the super powers are boring and the special effects are so-so at best. You could overlook all that and just go for the action but then again you would only watch th...[Read More]

Wish Dragon – Review

I get it, each generation their own Star Wars, or in this case Aladdin. We all knowsa howsa that wentsa… For those unfamiliar with the above pun, Wish Dragon is essentially Aladdin set in modern day China, a cheap and lazy knock-off of Disney’s animated “Aladdin” (not the live action one) one might say. Sure, for those who never heard of the 1001 Arabian Nights stories and ...[Read More]

Little Fish – Review

When I first heard the title “Little Fish” I thought “little” of it. Nomen est Omen as the saying goes. I then watched it, expecting a sad love story, which is essentially what this movie is. It’s a very sad Little Fish. I liked it, though. However, in a time of a real pandemic, watching a sad movie about a fictional pandemic that causes memory loss and ultimately los...[Read More]

The Woman in the Window Review

The Woman in the Window is currently yet another Top Ten entry on Netflix that pops up every time you switch on your TV. I finally sat down and took the time to watch it, not having read anything but the short description followed by the statement that this movie is suspenseful, as in full of suspense. And there is the rub. It just isn’t all that suspenseful. Sure you may wonder what happene...[Read More]

Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse Review

Some would argue that if you had seen one Tom Clancy movie or read one of the books you had seen and read them all. This sums it up in essence and this is how you should approach watching this movie. Temper your expectations. We are actually off to a quite decent start, following John on his mission to extract a CIA asset from hostile grounds. The mission goes sideways in a way due to incomplete b...[Read More]

Mortal Kombat – Theatrical Review

This is not Mortal Kombat’s first foray onto the big screen. In 1995 New Line Cinema brought the video game to life with mediocre reactions. It was good enough to spawn a sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, and a few animated films as well. When the first film released the first Mortal Kombat video game (Midway Games) had only been out for 3-years and its cultural power was yet to truly be known....[Read More]

Love and Monsters – Review

When I first saw the title I thought, well that’s going to be a cheesy movie. In the end it turned out to be quite enjoyable which left me pleasantly surprised. Joel (Dylan O’Brien) the protagonist, is going on a classical “Hero’s Journey” overcoming all obstacles in a post apocalyptic supersized monster world to reunite with his love Aimee (Jessica Henwick). I liked ...[Read More]

Thunder Force – Review

A new release on Netflix and currently #3 in France “Thunder Force” written and directed by Ben Falcone is up front and center on everyone’s dashboard and so it is not surprising that by sheer viewer numbers, this pops into the top 10. It will as quickly drop out of it though since it is simply not a good movie, mediocre at best with a few less mediocre moments and pop culture re...[Read More]

Exit 67 (Sortie 67)

Often moved from one foster home to the next, Ronald is recruited by a street gang where he dwells in a life of crime and violence. As he waits for his father to be released to avenge his mother, he realizes that he doesn't have to follow his father's footsteps ...[Read More]

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Theatrical Review

The first entry in the stand alone Star Wars film series is, in my opinion, a huge success. As film that was spawned from a single line of dialog in A New Hope I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when the room went dark and projector started rolling. Rogue One thankfully delivers in all the right ways. Let me just say that none of the entries in the star wars universe are perfect. There is pl...[Read More]

The Angry Birds Movie – Blu-ray Review

Movie Review I didn’t know what to expect when I sat down to watch The Angry Birds Movie. Considering it was based off an iPhone game that saw you launch a variety of birds at bigs on structures how was this movie going to work. Well, it wasn’t total drivel. There were a few good laughs and decent story existed that created the AB universe. With the voice talent, however, I did expect ...[Read More]

Brave – Blu-ray Review

Movie Review Many think Pixar was off the mark with Brave, but I believe those people are mistaken. Brave is a wonderful movie that looks at the aspects of childhood rebellion and growing up. When we are first introduced to Merida and her mother, the queen, you see the fun they have together. When we leapfrog into her teen years you can see the clash, which every parent has with their kids as they...[Read More]
