Swiss Army Man is unique, but is also a gross and hard film to enjoy.

Movie Review: Money Monster

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.

Movie Review: Sing Street

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.

Movie Review | X-Men: Apocalypse

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.

Movie Review | Captain America: Civil War

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.

Movie Review: Keanu

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.
