MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Dark Tower’ is a bleak, bland, blockbuster blunder

My favorite book of all time is “Carrie” by Stephen King, a brutal, heartbreaking, incredibly clever look inside the world of bullying through the gaze of a horror story. I grew up around King’s books, as my father was a massive fan of the books and would constantly either be reading a book by King, […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Star Trek Beyond’ is an interstellar adventure perfect for this point of summer

For Anton Let’s all be real here, the timing of “Star Trek Beyond” is pretty unfortunate, to say the least. Back in 2009, when the first film in the rebooted “Star Trek” universe launched, I’m positive Paramount had no idea whatsoever the plan that Disney and LucasFilm were cooking up in the Star Wars universe […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Jungle Book’ is revamped Disney magic

Despite its mixed reaction, my favorite installment in these new wave of Disney reboots has to be “Maleficent,” as Angelina Jolie’s fiercely impressive performance carried its magical story far past its “Sleeping Beauty” source material more than any other has done so far. But “The Jungle Book” seems to be something different, as this film […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Zootopia’ is a masterful family film in the most epic way

Fun fact: I hate “Frozen.” Yeah, I said it. Now, I really don’t hate the film because I feel that it’s bad in any way, in fact, it’s quite a well made film with some great music, but I’m just sick of it. It’s been over two years now, if I have to hear “Let […]

‘Beasts of No Nation’ review

“Beasts of No Nation” is a powerhouse of modern filmmaking. Based on the novel by Uzodinma Iweala and brought to life on screen by Cary Fukunaga (most known for directing season one of “True Detective”), the film is an engrossing look at war through the eyes of a child. It’s setting is not specifically stated, […]

MOVIE REVIEW: “Avengers: Age of Ultron” saves itself from being another repetitive superhero film

The Avengers was a feat of mastery of an incredibly epic proportion, plain and simple. Joss Whedon created something the film community had not seen before, an ambitious and bold piece of filmmaking that worked, down to a T. We had never seen anything of this size and originality before and it’s hard to say that […]

MOVIE REVIEW: “The Gunman” draws nothing but blanks

Yeah, yeah. I know I’m late on this review, but I saw it finally, so I might as well talk about it. Taken was a good film, I understand the hype surrounding it; it was a thrilling and engaging thriller that really brought Liam Neeson back to the limelight. Everything else that has followed Taken has not […]

MOVIE REVIEW: “No Good Deed” is sorta good movie

Home invasion movies scare me simply because they literally hit home; they don’t involve a ghost, or a possessed girl or even a night where all crime is legal. It’s a simple, frightening premise of fear in your safe place. Unfortunately, recent home invasion flicks have not only been scarce, but also underwhelming, taking less […]
