JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK Movie Review

Jack Reacher is the cleanest cut homeless dude you will ever see. He wanders the country righting wrongs, protecting the innocent, and calls out all the crooked ass hats he comes across. Think John Rambo but smarter and more da...


THE ACCOUNTANT Movie Review

MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN Movie Review

THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (2016) Movie Review

SUICIDE SQUAD Movie Review! Was it Really THAT Bad?

How many people did Enchantress have to kiss in order to make that soggy army ? I really don’t know what to say about this movie. Everyone with an internet connection seems to have something to say about it. ‘The e...


Ghostbusters (2016) Movie Review From A Guy And Gal’s Perspective

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...


THE HUNTSMAN: WINTERS WAR Movie Review
