Mission Impossible Fallout Movie Review

Yep, it's another "Mission Impossible" movie alright. And what better time than summer to sit back, kick our feet up, and watch impossible feats within director Christopher McQuarrie's 147 minute time bomb.

The Equalizer 2 Movie Review

The Equalizer 2 doesn’t Equate to Much Early on in "The Equalizer 2", the mercenary who shows no mercy, Robert McCall, played once again by Denzel Washington, rants "there are two types of pain in this world, pain that hurts and pain that alters".

Hotel Transylvania 3 Review

Imagine a concoction mixing "Dracula", "The Adams Family", "National Lampoon's Vacation", "L'Atalante", and "The Lady Eve". And why not while were at it, add in Adam Sandler and his crew of genial cockeyed buddies who have made a living off jokes on the subject of, well you know, the first half of the term "cockeyed".

Rampage 2018 Movie Review

Rampage is hardly the smash we hoped for. Not the worst movie I have ever seen, but further compliments barely exceed such high praise. Rampage 2018 Movie Review

A Quiet Place Movie Review

There is a reason that the apex of "the greatest films of all time" list goes by the name "sight and sound." That is, of course, because it is those two senses that transfer the images on a screen into a comprehensive medium, and it is these two senses that fuels John Krasinski's taut psychological alien invasion thriller.

Blockers Movie Review Staring John Cena and Kathryn Newton

Blockers is raunchy comedy at its finest. Three girls make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night, three parents try to stop them. Blockers Movie Review Staring John Cena and Kathryn Newton

Loveless Movie Review By FINE

No one wants to dwell in a life without love, the innocent and budding twelve-year-old boy Aloysha certainly didn't, and that is why he has run off, to escape a family life of turmoil and denial, where it is clear he is unwelcome. Click to read Loveless' Movie Review By FINE

Red Sparrow Movie Review

'Red Sparrow' seems to transpire in a distant Communist land, with a protagonist who is fed up by the conformity of powerful men who take advantage, and a fraudulent and sclerotic political system that is every bit as repulsive as those it employs. Although the uninhabited grand lavish buildings and stair ways, cold and lifeless weather, and unmissable Russian monuments say otherwise, the reality is, this is a world not too distant.

Game Night Movie Reviews

I can honestly say that I have never been so happy to miss a press screening in my life. Instead I went see the cerebral masterpiece 'Annihilation', which was screening at the same time as this, and of course, like every other critic in San Diego, I chose Garland's epic. Yet having left 'Game Night' this weekend, I realized the beatific aura that lurked in the air of a showing for it's target audience wouldn't have been as wonderful if I had viewed it in a room full of 10 critics. As a chorus of laughter overwhelmed the 7th screen at Edwards Mira Mesa theater, I began to notice the setting up of jokes three moves in advance creating genuine comedy and a checkmate of an ending.

A Wrinkle in Time Movie Review

If a 40 foot tall Oprah couldn't save this movie I don't know what could, given that half of America wants her to run for President. Unfortunately, there wasn't a check for two hours of my life back under my seat at the screening, making this campy Disney feature that comfortably basks in cliche and rational ambiguity an oddly glaring waste of time.

15:17 to Paris Movie Review

'The 15:17 to Paris' is the latest from the dexterous Clint Eastwood, as this based on a true story picture stars the heroes themselves. Does this idea sound familiar? For those who answered yes you are probably referring to 1955's enlightening WW2 biopic 'To Hell and Back' starring Audi Murphy, even for those who have seen Murphy's CinemaScope epic, you have not viewed anything quite like this, for better or for worse.

Fifty Shades Freed Movie Review

Have you seen the newest Fifty Shades movie? We have. And we're not holding back when it comes to our "rave" review of this newest installation of E.L. James' extremely popular franchise. So read on to find out what we honestly thought about the famous erotic romance movie and its cast.

Love Simon Movie Review

Love Simon is finding love in a largely unforgiving world. There has never been a studio that made a romantic comedy for gay teens about gay teens that can reach out to a general audience. Making this a groundbreaking feat, even if it's played decidedly conservative. Love Simon Movie Review

Phantom Thread Movie Review

Phantom Thread is as detailed as its dresses If you were to label director Paul Thomas Anderson's 2007 undisputed epic masterpiece 'There Will Be Blood' as a profound American success story, with a protagonist who is quite literally fueled by ego and wealth, Anderson's anti-hero, here, is quite literally embroidered with the very same defect. Phantom Thread Movie Review

The Oscars What Really Should Have Won

How many times do we think, why did that film win at The Oscars. We put together a list of What we thought would Win, What we wanted to Win, What Won(and why) The great thing about films is everyone is entitled to their opinion. Some may view the 'Transformers' series as their 'Citizen Kane', others see 'Citizen Kane' as their 'Citizen Kane', and although we believe the former to be true, those who side with the ladder are allowed to believe what they want.
