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: Locke

A two-hour drive in your car doesn’t seem like it would make for an intense movie experience. Sure you could strap a bomb to the car like in Speed or transport some Coors beer like [...]

Movie Review: Million Dollar Arm

Film audiences (including myself) love a feel-good “based on a true story” sports movie. Rudy, The Blind Side and one of my favorites, Cool Runnings turned reality into box office dollars and the affection of fans towards the real [...]

Movie Review | Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return

If you’ve read any of my family film reviews or seen ’44 on the Town’ that airs every Sunday at 11am on CW44 (cheap plug), I’ve gained the reputation as the ‘Kid Movie Killer’. I [...]

The 4: Worst Superhero Movies

It’s no secret. I’m a huge superhero nerd. Growing up reading comics I wished could see my heroes jump from their comic panels to the big screen. Lucky for myself and Hollywood studio heads, computer graphics [...]
