Movie Review: Doctor Strange

Just like Disney and Marvel made us buy into a tree and a talking raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy; you’ll believe in magic after seeing Doctor Strange.

Movie Review: Hacksaw Ridge

Andrew Garfield shows through his work in Hacksaw Ridge that he is more than just the guy from the failed The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, but a gifted actor showing a different side to the American soldier under the watch of director Mel Gibson.

Besides being an animated spectacle, Trolls delivers a good message for everyone about finding happiness in other places besides a pill, food or drink.

Movie Review | Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back may not have been a sequel audiences were clamoring to see, but Cruise and his Director pal Edward Zwick actually improves on the previous installment by humanizing the no-nonsense Ex Military Policeman Jack Reacher this go around.

Movie Review: The Accountant

The Accountant is one of those rare action films that manages to be smart, yet not get too involved in the math side of the story losing some viewers (myself included) whose numbers game is not up to par
