The Dark Tower

The good news is this movie is a classic tale of good versus evil and the use of an innocent pawn, but the pawn comes to find out he has much more power than he ever though possible. The bad news is, we've seen this story played out dozens of times and this movie adds nothing new to the mix. Beyond that, there is very little explanation of what is going on and why. Matthew McConaughey plays the bad guy really well. He's creepy for sure, but we have no idea why he is...

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

It's still fairly early in the year, but this film has a solid shot at being one of my 10 worst films of the year. The only thing good I can say about this movie is that the visuals are great. Everything else about this flick is terrible. The worst thing about it is the casting. Valerian, played by Dane DeHaan, is supposed to be a Major in the military, but he looks like he's barely out of high school. Laureline, played by Cara Delevinge, is supposed to be a Sergeant, but she looks like she...

Dunkirk

This is, without a doubt, a front-runner for being a finalist for several awards including many of the biggest awards. DUNKIRK is a powerful, moving, and intense film. It is visually stunning, the soundtrack is outstanding, the acting is superb, and the direction is near perfect. When you add to that the fact that this is a film based on one of the most heroic moments of World War II, it is worth being seen by as many people as possible. Director Christopher Nolan did a masterful job in conveying the horrors of...

The Big Sick

Just like the classic children's tale about a train, this could very well be one of those little movies that could. It's not some big-budget blockbuster that will amaze all of your senses. It's a simple love story that is quirky, funny, heart-breaking, heart-warming and real. This film is based on the real life experience of Kumail and his wife Emily. It is a fascinating blend of comedy, cultural tension, family issues, love and sickness. While this isn't a rom-com that belongs in the upper echelon of cinematic greatness, it is a...

War for the Planet of the Apes

This franchise has been outstanding from the beginning, and WAR is no exception. The story is fascinating. It draws you in and keeps you engaged the entire 2 1/2 hours. It is filled with powerful moments of beauty, sympathy, forgiveness, and grace. But it is also filled with the desire for power, revenge, and survival. The irony of this film is that it is the humanity of the apes that makes it so compelling. Once again the CGI work is second to none. It is truly astonishing that Caesar is not a...

This is one of those horror flicks that is much more about the horror than it is about trying to scare you out of your seat. There are only a couple of moments of jumps and bumps, but from the very beginning there is a feeling of dread. There really isn't anything new that this movie offers the audience. There is a lot of high school angst and horror movie cliches, but it isn't a bad film. If you are looking for a movie that will give you some good chills and make...

Just like a Maud Lewis painting, on the surface this film is simple and beautiful. Also like her paintings, as you really start to delve deep into this film you'll realize it is profound and deep. Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke give masterful, award-worthy performances. Their characters are so complex that you truly feel the love they have for one another though it is rarely shown. The chemistry between the two is something special. This film will fill you with joy, break you with sorrow, and leave you with a spectacular appreciation...

Spider-Man: Homecoming

WooHoo! The summer of 2017 continues to be all sorts of awesome thanks to movies like SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING. I was seriously questioning the sanity of several people in Hollywood when I heard that they were doing yet another reboot of Spidey, but I must say they did it right and it was a good choice. This is an origin story, but it skips all of the beginning stuff we all know and slows down the story. This version jumps right into the action and doesn't let up for the full 2 1/2 hours. ...

Transformers: The Last Knight

If there is one interesting thing about this movie it is that I keep on assuming that the next TRANSFORMERS film can't possibly be as bad as the one before it, and yet I continue to be wrong. Michael Bay has sunk to a level of such horrible story telling and entertainment that, I'm guessing, even Hollywood executives are starting to have second thoughts as to whether they should give him a $250 million budget and a green light on his next venture. (Nah, I'm just kidding. Hollywood execs will always throw stupid amounts of money at Bay). ...

47 Meters Down

This is an interesting film. It's not great by any stretch of the imagination, but it has moments of brilliance. It also has moments of eye-rolling stupidity. One of those moments is the last five minutes of the movie. Some people are going to think the end of the movie is outstanding, others are going to hate it with the burning passion of a thousand suns. The good news is, either way you're going to feel something. This film is full of great suspense. There were several times where I caught myself...
