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

Movie Review: Denial

This legal location switcheroo leads to a unique film drama full of frustration propped up by two strong performances from Weisz and Wilkinson.

Movie Review: The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train with Emily Blunt in the lead looked like a winner on paper, yet the adaptation doesn’t do anything to entice the audience into caring about what happens to all these unlikable, self-absorbed people and their problems.

Movie Review: The Birth of a Nation

The Birth of a Nation is one of the few instances where the director of the film actually bails himself out by giving a strong performance in the lead as a nice man forced to raise his fist in order to do what he feels is right.

Movie Review: Deepwater Horizon

The explosion is the focus of Deepwater Horizon, but the cast gives the audience its hope and depictions of heroism.

Movie Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

Burton creates a beautiful world full of amazing individuals in Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, but it can’t make up for lack of originality and an uninspired lead in the form of Asa Butterfield .

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.
