The Mummy (2017) Review

Hollywood is wondering why no one is going to the movie theater now and tickets sales are way down. This film answers that question because the only things they can seem to do now is Remake, Reboot, Sequel, complain about the President, and rip-off the idea of a Cinematic Universe nobody asked for in the first place. The Mummy is a bitter disappointment on so many levels.

The Lost City of Z Quick Review

The Lost City of Z does more right than it does wrong if it could only trim the fat of filler exposition, not only would it improve the pace but it would improve the overall quality of the film.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Review

When it comes to King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, the weakest part of the film is the writing. It feels like if they had spent more time polishing the writing and making the flow of the film work better this would be a much better movie. With that said, the movie is enjoyable its many problems makes it more worthy of a rental than a must see in the theaters. Legend of the Sword is a typical Hollywood blockbuster, high on special effects and low on quality.

Lion (Guest Review Ft. Movie Man Jackson)

It may be the editing, which isn’t perfect in the first half, but adequate. In the second half, elapsed time isn’t clearly defined, and some character introductions/relationships/reintroductions are a little clunky as a result. Chemistry between Patel and Rooney Mara is average. The scenes they share extensively together (not a ton) is when Lion becomes a tad clichéd and its pace compromised

But even with that, Lion does a lot more to be legitimately emotional than the average solely Oscar-centric movie. In simplicity, a moving tale is found.

Beauty and the Beast (Guest Review Ft. KeithLovesMovies)

Overall, this was a good adaptation of the animated classic that stayed true to the source material. While the film took advantage of its budget, the overproduction of the musical numbers often did more harm than good. The film depended on the relationship between Belle and the Beast’s but it wasn’t the most believable because of the lack of development and chemistry between Emma Watson and Dan Stevens.

Kong: Skull Island Review

Kong: Skull Island really wants to be taken seriously, but can’t shake the fact that it feels like a B-movie with a 200 million dollar budget. It may be too early to say this, but King Kong might only be the second-best movie about Apes this year.

The Great Wall Review

The Great Wall misses the mark by delivering a medieval Independence Day knock off that doesn’t have the excitement or the edge to be memorable.
