If you want to watch a silly film that is more B-Movie thriller than a serious take on the Wall Street culture then Money Monster is for you.
Sing Street is nothing groundbreaking compared to Carney’s previous work entries, but is still a pleasure to watch including some standout scenes with Cosmo (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) and his brother Brendan played fabulously by Jack Reynor.
X-Men: Apocalypse has some big mutant throw downs, which should please die-hard X-Men fans, but for the most part the movie feels as if we’ve seen all these scenarios done before, only better in previous entries in the franchise.
Captain America: Civil War is a rare superhero movie that makes you think about the importance of controlling the ultimate power, while still giving you a glorious spectacle that will leave you smiling ear to ear.
Like most comedies, Keanu has a hard time getting to the finish line in the third act, but the work from Key and Peele accomplishes what it is supposed to do. It makes you laugh.
The top-notch acting in Papa Hemingway in Cuba makes up for the slow burn and turns a simple story into something much bigger than it should be just like Earnest Hemingway did with his stories.
If you’re looking for cinema gore and white knuckle suspense, Green Room will be exactly what you want in a movie. Just don’t expect anything more.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War is definitely better than Snow White and the Huntsman, but that’s not saying much.
Cheadle may stumble as a director, but luckily he has himself to thank for making Miles Ahead watchable due to his strong work as the erratic Miles Davis.
Elvis & Nixon is only a few days in the life of these two popular figures, but the film is an oddball tale full of charm.
