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.

Kill Mobile Review: Didn’t I Just Watch This Movie Like 6 Weeks Ago?

Last month, I reviewed the South Korean Comedy Intimate Strangers and when I saw the trailer for Kill Mobile, I literally thought it was the exact same movie…and I was right. The 2016 Italian film Perfect Strangers is currently spouting remakes all across the globe. So since I’ve already watched the South Korean version, let’s see how the Chinese version holds up.

Leave No Trace Review: The Troubling Line Between Independence And Endangerment

I guess I should give credit to Victor Morton, the Rightwing Film Geek for this film recommendation…but I won’t. I can already tell you that my Best & Worst films of 2018 will be VASTLY different from the Academy and the Foreign Press because as the 2019 Golden Globes nominations have been announced, sadly the film Leave No Trace is nowhere to be found, but they found a spot for Black Panther so no one could excuse them of being racist (this year).

Default (2018) Review: Korea’s ‘Big Short’ Falls ‘Just Shy’

It is impossible to avoid comparisons to the 2015 American film The Big Short when talking about this South Korean drama. Set during the 1997 Asian currency meltdown, Default is a film that covers the impending bankruptcy of South Korea from three different perspectives. A Senior financial analyst who tries to warn her sexist government the country will be broke in just one week, a former banker who sees the financial collapse of his country as the investment opportunity of a lifetime, and the people of the country who are about to experience the worst financial crisis in history.

Creed II Review: Formulaic But Engaging Rocky Film

The Rocky Balboa franchise has been around since 1976, 42 years later and the series is still alive and kicking. Three years ago, the franchise took a different direction not focusing so much on Rocky himself, but on the son of franchise favorite Apollo Creed, Adonis played by Michael B Jordan. The film was a smash hit which even saw Sylvester Stallone win a Golden Globe for his performance.

The Front Runner Review: Gary Hart Isn’t As Interesting As He Is Sold In The Film

Believe it or not, there was a time in America where journalists questioned their own ethics when writing and reporting a story…about Democrats. If you are a Republican, you can damn sure look forward to journalists screaming loaded questions from halfway across the room while they wrestle the mic away from your interns just to make you look as bad as humanly possible.

Indivisible Review: A Strong Faith-Based Drama With An Strong Emotional Punch

It has been a busy year for Christian movies especially actress Madeline Carroll who has been in three films this year I Can Only Imagine, God Bless the Broken Road, and now Indivisible. One thing I credit the Christian genre for doing is bringing to light real-life stories of people who we would have never seen or known about otherwise. Here we have another film based on the True Story of Army chaplain Darren Turner (Justin Bruening) who deploys to Iraq during the height of the War in 2007.

Unbroken: Path to Redemption Review

The ability to forgive someone is one of the hardest things to do in life and redemption is one of the hardest things to achieve. Unbroken: Path to Redemption cites Matthew 6:14 “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.” This was the choice that World War II veteran Louis Zamperini had to make to save himself and his family.

Christopher Robin (Guest Review Ft. JasonsMovieBlog)

As a young boy growing up in the countryside of Sussex, England, Christopher Robin (Orton O’Brien) spends his days playing the Hundred Acre Wood with his whimsical toy friends: nervous Piglet (Nick Mohammed), downbeat Eeyore (Brad Garett), fussy Rabbit (Peter Capaldi), scholarly Owl (Toby Jones), kind Kanga (Sophie Okonedo), little Roo (Sara Sheen), boisterous Tiger (Jim Cummings), and, of course, the lovably simply and ever so hungry Winnie the Pooh (Jim Cummings).
