I, Tonya Review

Screenwriter Steven Rogers tells a story about Harding that has rarely been told, and we end up sympathizing with her for the first time telling this story. When the Detroit attack happened, Harding was painted as the villain as Kerrigan was portrayed as the poor innocent girl who viciously attacked. While the attack was indeed dastardly, Kerrigan’s portrayal by the media was anything but accurate, while people were too harsh on Tonya but history is written by the victor.

The Ex-File 3: The Return of The Exes Review

December 27, 2006…the film was Black Christmas…it was the last time I let a film beat me and I walked out of the movie before the ending. 4,021 days since I’ve walked out and today…the streak is over.

Pitch Perfect 3 Review

I’ve already seen multiple reviewers claiming that females deserve better than Pitch Perfect 3, to that I say, if the women who made this movie spent as much time on quality filmmaking as they do on their Twitter accounts, maybe you wouldn’t have gotten a top 5 worst film of the year.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Review

As far as the rest of the film, Frances McDormand is great and she deserves the award recognization that she is getting. Woody Harrelson is rarely ever bad in film and he does a good job playing a questionable cop. The acting is stellar, the writing here is confusing because the narrative is completely conflicting. I was pretty conflicted myself watching this because there are things I liked and things that I hated.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Review

The script is well thought out as they manage to keep things simple and interesting. Playing the rules of a game, they establish each player has only had three lives before dying and outside of one ‘heroic’ scene, don’t bend the rules of the game. This adds much-needed tension when players no longer have any room for error when it comes to survival.

Downsizing Review

The best way to describe Downsizing is that someone took an interesting concept and fumbled it at the 10-yard line. There is a movie here that the audience wants to see, but the movie we got is one nobody asked for. The only positive thing here is the performance of Hong Chau, whose humor comes from speaking in broken English. Outside of that Downsizing is a film that lost its plot the second Kristen Wiig left the film and they decided to go on for almost 2 hours after that.

Last Flag Flying Review

The core of this story is grief over the loss of a loved one and while the film captures the emotional pain of past choice, it doesn’t quite have the impact to be as memorable as they were hoping. With that said Amazon Studios is building a solid catalog of films as Last Flag Flying is both heartwarming and heartbreaking.

A Bad Moms Christmas Review

gain I find myself going the film probably would have been better making the center focus Kathryn Hahn & Susan Sarandon and not literally everyone else but for the love of God, these franchise needs to die and Thank God they won’t make enough money to do another one.

Daddy’s Home 2 Review

Daddy’s Home 2 is perfectly described using the character of Didi Costine in the film. Things are happening in front of you but the YouTube video on your phone is much more entertaining…and you don’t even like most the people in the film as well. You are just kind of wondering why you are even here to begin with. 

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.
