Replicas Review: An Amazingly Stupid Movie

Not since The Bye Bye Man has a January release been so bad that it was almost good…almost. I tell you what, Keanu Reeves should not do anymore films that don’t have the name John Wick attached to them because his recent non-wick projects have not been very good. Replicas is no different because this might be the dumbest film of 2019 for a laundry list of reasons.

The Upside Review/Discussion (The Media’s Attempted Sabotage Of The Film)

Critics have a hard enough time these days maintaining credibility in the face of being called shills for certain studios or even being criticized for being the wrong race and gender to review a movie in the first place. Fair or unfair, it is a bad look for the industry to turn into attack dogs that serve push the agenda of ideologues and I’m saying this as an openly biased critic. Is The Upside a great film? No, but it is a very good one but if you are waiting for mainstream critics to tell you that, you may be dealing with people who decided to sink the movie before it ever had a chance.

Bumblebee Review: Soars Over An Extremely Low Bar

Set in what I assume is the late 1980s, The War On Cybertron reaches its boiling point as Optimus Prime and the Autobots are forced from their homes and must retreat to Earth due to their civil war against the Decepticons. The first Autobot to arrive on the planet is B-127 also known as Bumblebee. Bee is forced into hiding until a young girl named Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) finds him in a junkyard. Together they must protect Bee from not only the Military led by a vengeful John Cena but the Decepticon soldiers who seek the termination of the remaining Autobots.

The Mule Review: Eastwood Redeems Himself In Gritty Celebration Of Family

Earlier this year, Clint Eastwood wrote and directed a film starring three young heroes who stopped a terrorist attack in France called The 15:17 to Paris. Unfortunately, this gamble did not pay off as the movie with amateur actors bombed critically and didn’t reach the heights that Eastwood set for the film. Ten months later, Eastwood has a chance at redemption with a film called The Mule and Eastwood does not flub his second chance.
