Atomic Blonde Review

Now I’ve heard many people complain about this film based on the fact they cannot buy a 130-pound woman beating up men 3x her size, while I do agree to a degree, I’ll leave the science of this film to people like Steven Crowder.

Dunkirk Review

Christopher Nolan makes up for a bloated disappointing Interstellar, with a film that excels in cinematography, sound, story, acting, and relevance. Dunkirk is easily one of the best films of the years and it didn’t take 2 hours and 50 minutes to do that…take notes.

War for the Planet of the Apes Review

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes established an emotional grounding between Caesar and Koba given their two very different experiences with humans. Without that element, War for the Planet of the Apes wouldn’t have much to work with. As the film it is a technical achievement but as far as storytelling it’s a bore.

Wish Upon Quick Review

Wish Upon, is a poorly constructed horror film that doesn’t nearly go as far as it should with a PG-13 rating, but the film is so unintentionally funny, that it still makes for an entertaining film as long as you give up on the premise about 20 minutes in.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

DO NOT stay for any post credit scenes as it will be a waste of your time and they will literally mock you for it. There is not a cool preview for a future film at the end, but for 2 Hours and 13 minutes you will find Spider-Man: Homecoming to be a highly entertaining popcorn flick and given the last 10 years of the Spiderman movies, that’s all you can ask.

The Beguiled (2017) Quick Review

This is a great commercial for the 1971 film for those who haven’t seen it and if you have seen it, then you have pretty much already watched this film down to the scene with the pet turtle. If you are a fan of Southern Gothic, I definitely recommend this one to you. The Beguiled is worth a watch, especially for guys because playing with repressed sexuality will 9/10 burn you in the end.

Reset (Ni Shi Ying Jiu) Quick Review

The movie is silly at times, but it isn’t that bad, they competently tell the story of a woman who will defy the laws of space and time to save her son. Yang Mi really sells the role of a desperate mother teetering on the edge of sanity as the film progresses. Reset is a decent Sci-fi B-Movie but doesn’t reach any higher heights than that.
