TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS Movie Review

Turtles.  It’s just…Turtles. This isn’t DEADPOOL with meta-humor and hilarious-yet-heartfelt vulgarity.  It isn’t BATMAN V SUPERMAN with a gritty visual palette and self-serious characters.  It isn...

THE JUNGLE BOOK Movie Review

With the success of CINDERELLA and MALEFICENT, Disney has every reason to bet on live action remakes as cash cows, and their latest effort, THE JUNGLE BOOK, will only encourage that sentiment.  The film centers on Mowgli, a yo...

Let’s get this out of the way right now. There are two kinds of people in this world. People that like Tarantino movies, and those who don’t. He’s what you might call a ‘polarizing’ director. He’s trashy, violent to...
