Movie Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Rise of the Planet of the Apes became a surprise hit in 2011 and was declared the best prequel ever. I loved Rise, but I hate that the word prequel is attached to that film. Sure, there are easter eggs which hint a connection to the classic Planet of the Apes franchise, but let’s be honest. Those minor links are really nothing more than homage to the original series. This new Apes franchise is its own story which continues with the highly anticipated sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Movie Review | Transformers: Age of Extinction

To say that Michael Bay is a horrible director would be an understatement. The lazy director recycles the same shots over and over again in all of his films and his sense of humor may be the worst in Hollywood. I would call his past work an aBAYmination.

Movie Review: Jersey Boys

Garbage dumps, traffic round a bouts and broadway musicals are not my favorite things in the world. So you can imagine what my excitement level was over the decision to turn the musical Jersey Boys into a feature film.

Movie Review: Think Like A Man Too

Think Like A Man may have been a surprise hit that started a pattern of box office success for Kevin Hart, but it was not a funny at all.

Movie Review: The Rover

Guy Pearce is one of those actors that should be a bigger star. The guy shines in roles such as Memento, L.A. Confidential and The King’s Speech yet is still left off Hollywood’s A-list when it comes to big roles.
