NIGHTCRAWLER Movie Review

Well, this certainly was a very liberal interpretation of my favorite X-Men character!  Who knew that before Kurt Wagner joined Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, he was an amoral sociopath named Louis Bloom (Jake ...

BIG HERO 6 Movie Review

‘On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your pain?’ Well, Baymax… When I walked into the theatre, I was at about a 1.  Then, you started pulling on my old heart strings and skyrocketed my emotions right up...

INTERSTELLAR Movie Review

Christopher Nolan movies are like expensive Lego sets. Once you finally put them together they look really cool, but if your brother steps on them and fucks up the pieces, you don’t really care about putting them back tog...

HORNS Movie Review

Ever wonder what Harry Potter would have been like if he had joined Slytherin, but retained his likability?  Director Alexandre Aja (PIRANHA 3D) answers those questions with HORNS: a tale of love, murder, spirituality, multipl...

BIRDMAN Movie Review

BIRDMAN is a thrilling and exhilarating step for director González Iñárritu (BÍUTIFUL, 21 GRAMS). The flowing camera work, the raw, organic acting, the lighting and sets all come together to create a fast, smart, funny, ...

JOHN WICK Movie Review

John Wick?  John Wick.  Johhhhnnn Wick. JOHN Wick. John.  John WICK?  JOHNNNN Wick.  John. Wick. Johnny Wickles. Jonathan. I jokingly suggested that I would do a shot for every time that someone said ‘John Wick’...

FURY Movie Review

 Warning: Minor Spoilers Ahead. While writer/director David Ayer (END OF WATCH) is known for modern, gritty, hard hitting films, they haven’t always resonated with the box office. Ayer deviates from his modern tradition with...

DRACULA UNTOLD Movie Review

Warning: Major spoilers ahead. Hollywood likes nothing better than to rehash a once profitable idea in an effort to make more money, and it’s clearly that kind of mentality that has led to DRACULA UNTOLD. The film is the debu...

GONE GIRL Movie Review

Baby’s on Fire Man, David Fincher is funny now? I didn’t get the MEMO! Seriously, the dude who brought us PANIC ROOM and ALIEN 3, is now riffing hard with his new flick GONE GIRL. He’s having a laugh and inviting...

THE EQUALIZER Movie Review

Ah, THE EQUALIZER. Now unless you are over thirty, you probably have no idea what a Equalizer is. THE EQUALIZER was a show in the mid-late 80’s about a retired british intelligence agent (Edward Woodward) who solves A-Team t...


TUSK

TUSK Movie Review

 The filmography of Kevin Smith can be polarizing for some folks.  Either you think he is capable of overly romanticizing the mundane and unorthodox with hilarious tangent-filled dialogue or you think his body of work is a l...

THE GIVER Movie Review

Given the recent flood of young-adult-novel-adaptations, The Giver certainly isn’t a surprise. I (and I assume most others) was excited to see it mainly because of nostalgia. It was, after all, a not insignificant novel...

HOWARD THE DUCK (2017) Movie Review

Holy smokes! My feathers are forever ruffled! Way back in 2015, Marvel announced that they were making a new HOWARD THE DUCK film and the internet practically burst into flames. #HowardtheWTF. The internet erupted in a nerd wa...

THE EXPENDABLES 3 Movie Review

Man, I really can’t wait for the unrated version of this movie to be released.  Not because I think that THE EXPENDABLES 3 would be improved by much (if at all), but at least it wouldn’t feel like I’m watchin...

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES (2014) Movie Review

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES is stupid.  The franchise, since its inception in 1984, is based around a stupid premise: four pet shop turtles and a rat are mutated beneath the streets of New York City and are skilled in the dea...

LUCY Movie Review

Warning: Spoilers Ahead. While Luc Besson (THE FAMILY) has some impressive writer/director credits to his name, such as THE FIFTH ELEMENT and LEON: THE PROFESSIONAL, he is certainly very well known for his stand alone writing c...
