Movie Review: The Hollars

Without the amazing performance of Martindale, The Hollars would be a bad movie with goofy moments that don’t match the rest of the vibe in the film.

Movie Review: Storks

Storks definitely has a neat concept, but the problem is there are so many subplots in the story that it’s hard to figure out what storyline we should really care about.

Movie Review: The Magnificent Seven

The film has a good deal of unapologetic bloodshed, but that’s part of the endearment of The Magnificent Seven.

Movie Review: Blair Witch

The potential was there to create something wild and intense building off the original story, but Blair Witch goes through the same motions again with just a few extra dummies walking in circles this time around.

Movie Review: Snowden

The decision to focus on the least exciting parts of Snowden’s life instead of the controversial aftermath that ensued after the leaks is what turns this incredible story into a dud of a movie.

Movie Review: Sully

Tom Hanks’ first class performance and the unique way Eastwood decides to unfold the drama at hand helps keep Sully from being just an ordinary film about an extraordinary event we are all too familiar with.

Movie Review: Morgan

Morgan is by no means is a bad film, just one that could have been great if the creators would have followed through with their initial motif instead of bloody fists with zero emotional impact.

Movie Review: Don’t Breathe

Don’t Breathe maybe unbelievable at times, but one thing is for certain. You’ll be on the edge of your seat watching this throwback horror thriller play out with Stephen Lang’s blind man becoming a new face of fear.

Movie Review: Hands of Stone

Director Jonathan Jakubowicz keeps Hands of Stone authentic so be prepared for subtitles, but the turmoil and theatrics will keep your eyes glued to the screen as Edgar Ramirez, Robert De Niro and Usher Raymond supply first-rate interpretations as the combatants at the center of this paint by the numbers boxing biopic.
