Movie Review: Barry

As December comes closer to its end, so does the presidency of Barack Obama. Though too kind and trustworthy for his own good, he was still one of finest presidents we ever had.  He aimed to do everything he could to help his country, its citizens – even against the unmovable and cruel GOP and the multitudes who […]

Movie Review: Moana

For the past few years I’ve felt that Disney has mainly been off it’s “A” game, releasing films that didn’t quite reach that gold standard. Wreck It Ralph was a very enjoyable film,  however Frozen, in my opinion was unbearably mediocre and the less said about that white-washed garbage Big Hero 6 the better! But this […]

Movie Review: The Accountant

Throughout film history, Autism has always had a niche from which it has rarely expanded. Films dealing with Autism range from an autistic character getting close to his family or finding true love, but we rarely get a film where an autistic character is a hero who fights bad guys with ease. The closest we ever […]

Movie Review: Magnificent Seven

The western film genre is one that has been dying out over the years. Very few are ever released and the few that are don’t do well at the box office. On top of that it seems only remakes of westerns can leave any kind of impact and as with every single year another well […]

Movie Review: Suicide Squad

For the past three years DC and Warner Bros. have been trying to copy Marvel’s success in the film industry by trying to create a shared movie universe of their own. The problem is they’ve made many missteps along the way from trying to get to the Justice League movie as quickly as possible to having the […]

Movie Review: Nerve

During the summer movie going season when we’re swamped with advertising campaigns for the biggest, newest blockbusters it’s always easy to forget those smaller films that come out, ones that don’t have a lot of attention or advertising when they come out. For the most part these films seem rather unappealing when going up against […]

Movie Review: The Shallows

Since the release of the strange and over the top Sharknado there has been an influx of bizarre shark films. Ghost sharks, avalanche sharks, three headed sharks, sharks fighting mecha-crocodiles, the insanity goes on. It seems every filmmaker who wants to cash in is trying to make their film as ridiculous as possible so their’s will be […]

Movie Review: The Conjuring 2

Over the past three years, James Wan has quickly become one of my favorite directors. Initially believing him to be a maker of sub par horror films, I had stayed away from anything that had his name on it. However, three years ago I saw The Conjuring and found I had been wrong for so long. The […]
