The Shallows - Movie Review

B-movie material with a good-sized bite.

Free State of Jones - Movie Review

Much better suited for a multi-part mini-series

Finding Dory - Movie Review

Offers a much-needed message in today’s world of increasing intolerance for those who are different.

Mindless entertainment. An ironic statement but we could all use the laugh.

Free State of Jones - Movie Review

Free State of Jones - Movie ReviewAs gangly and unstable as a newborn colt, Free State of Jones is the well-intentioned but ultimately heavy-handed and torturous story about a virtually unknown episode of American history, and an even lesser-known man. Historians still debate the facts to this day, but  ...

The Shallows - Movie Review

The Shallows - Movie ReviewThe Shallows just might be the sleeper hit of the summer.  Straightforward, intense, and with just a hint of symbolism, The Shallows gets the balance right for the summer season and delivers an engaging story of survival.  Of course, whether or not YOU like like the movie ...

10 Cloverfield Lane - Blu-ray Review

10 Cloverfield Lane - Movie ReviewWith more bang than it has any right to, 10 Cloverfield Lane sizzles as a convergence of two seemingly unrelated ideas provide an entertaining and wildly cracked ride. It is, hands down, the best genre film I've seen since Cabin in the Woods. High praise indeed and,   ...

Jeepers Creepers 2 Collector's Edition (2003) - Blu-ray Review

jeepers Creepers II - Blu-ray ReviewThere are few things as terrifying to me then to be trapped on a school bus with a bunch of High School jocks.  Talk about a total freak-out of testosterone, sweaty gym bags, and meat hooks.  This is the territory exploited by Jeepers Creepers 2, now ...

Finding Dory - Movie Review

Finding Dory - Movie ReviewIt was only a matter of time before Dory got her own picture. Granted, no one could have imagined it would take Pixar 13 years, but we’re finally going back to Nemo’s reef to pay another visit to the forgetful blue tang and her finned, scaled, feathered, and tentacled ...

Central Intelligence - Movie Review

Central Intelligence - Movie ReviewGuilty pleasure.  That’s exactly what Central Intelligence, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart, is when it’s all said and done.  This is a buddy-cop movie that is as stupid as it is harmless and funny.  Critics will get off on hating it.  Audiences will laugh ...
