See You Yesterday (2019) Review: Black Lives Matter Activism Masquerading As A Sci-Fi Film

The split between critics and audiences was too big to ignore and one name made the picture as clear as day…Spike Lee. Yep, buckle up.

Captive State Review: A Cinematic Game Of Choose Your Own Narrative

The reason why Captive State is so confusing is they intentionally keep you in the dark about what is going on until the very end. The problem is, they don’t do it in a suspenseful way that builds up to an exciting conclusion.

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.

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 Predator Review

The last thing 20th Century Fox wanted is a scandal attached to their $90 million dollar blockbuster but they got it. However, with all the talk of registered sex offenders and female predators, you would forget that there is actually a movie attached to all this. Shane Black is a polarizing director for me (and possibly Olivia Munn).

Kin Review & Discussion (Entertainment Weekly’s Terrible Take)

I wasn’t expecting a political debate about a borderline throwaway film released during Labor Day Weekend (a graveyard for cinema) yet here I am. Kin, a movie about a boy who finds an alien gun and gets caught up against a bunch of bad people is in theaters on Thursday. I saw the film and enjoyed it, however, I was a bit surprised by the negative reaction behind it. I mean the movie definitely has flaws, but it wasn’t a bad film by any means.

A.X.L. Review

What is so odd about the film A.X.L. is that we essentially know nothing about this film. I can’t recall any trailers or marketing for this film leading up to its release. As of this writing, I don’t even believe there has even been a rumored budget of the film. All of this sounds like Global Road Entertainment really didn’t have any faith in this movie at all and it’s not hard to see why.
