Happy Death Day Review

I give production companies like Blumhouse lots of credit for taking a small budget films like this and taking a chance where hit or miss, is a very refreshing formula in a very stale and creatively bankrupt climate in Hollywood. Happy Death Day is a fun and energetic film perfect for the Halloween season.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Review

Kingsman: The Secret Service set a high bar that Golden Circle simply couldn’t match, but Kingsman: The Golden Circle is still a fun enjoyable movie. Escapism is the key and Kingsman excels at being the Bond movie that Bond movies can’t be anymore…crude, violent, funny, and self-aware. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a solid popcorn flick to end a painful Summer Blockbuster season.

Logan Lucky Quick Review

Logan Lucky is a good movie, the cast has a great time playing their roles and it shows. The problem is the film is not very original and very clichéd. The story becomes way too convenient in order for everything to work out and takes away from the risk of the heist. That doesn’t mean you won’t have a good time watching it because you will, and perhaps you learn a thing or two about NASCAR when it’s all said and done…like why you don’t watch it.

The House Review

I went into this film with lower expectations than the American Health Care Act and got results worse than Affordable Care Act. Sometimes you have to save the establishment from themselves and it’s clear that the establishment comedians are completely out of touch with what Americans and beyond find funny and enjoying.

Baywatch Review

There is no way around it, Baywatch is amiss on almost every level. Rock’s likable charm can’t save this film and honestly, he’s much better in action films than trying to save BS comedies like this. Zac Efron has his name attached to another stinker, and I’m not sure any of the women actually won being in his film, except Kelly Rohrbach on the basis you actually know who she is now. Baywatch is a sad cash grab that makes sad cash grabs look bad.

Snatched Quick Review

As if I need to be any blunter, I think comedy and Amy Schumer needs to take a break, go on a vacation with Seth Rogen and forget to come back, maybe then we can get fewer movies like this and go back to making people laugh.

Free Fire Review

Free Fire fancies itself as a Tarantino-like film, but the film manages to fail to match every aspect of filmmaking that made Tarantino a success. If it wasn’t for a decent opening, I would rate this film much worse, as it is Free Fire is one of the worst examples of wasted potential in some time.

Going in Style Review

Considering how close to death these actors are in real life, they aren’t doing their legacy a favor by being in movies like this. Going In Style is a half-assed revenge tale of a bunch of bitter old man who really doesn’t have anyone but themselves to blame.

CHiPs Quick Review

This isn’t the comedy of the year or even a smash hit, it just isn’t as bad as I thought it was. Dax Shepard put a lot of effort into this film and overall it was a decent effort. The chemistry works, the jokes are hit and miss, and Vincent D’Onofrio is never a waste of a film. CHiPs may have nothing to do with the original by it is a good movie to rent.

Get Out Review

Get Out isn’t a film that people have to worried about being lectured to or a film people are afraid to criticize because they don’t want to be called racist. It is a Great Horror/Comedy that exaggerates social issues to get some great laughs and suspense.

La La Land Review

I’m not going to give it “best film of the year” nods while Hacksaw Ridge and Hell or High Water are in the running and I believe those are MUCH better films but La La Land is a fun blast from the past
