Alita: Battle Angel

For some reason Hollywood loves to turn graphic novels into movies, but very rarely does it translate into a successful film. Sure, many of them become cult classics, like SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, but that movie lost more than $13 Million on production budget alone. ALITA has a $200 Million production budget to overcome. That's a lot of manga fans seeing this movie more than once just to get to break even. As for the movie, it is pretty good. It's filled with fast-paced action and incredible fight scenes. The story is interesting, which is a...

If you ever saw the movie MISS CONGENIALITY you've pretty much seen this film, but only if you played the first one in reverse...and take out all of the happy moments. Gina Rodriguez is decent in this movie, but the rest of the cast is pretty terrible. It is filled with stilted dialogue, one-dimensional characters, and formulaic plot points. It has a couple of suspenseful moments, but for an action flick it moves pretty slow. There isn't a lot to this movie other than what you see in the trailer. It is just over...

Who would have ever thought that when UNBREAKABLE hit theaters in late 2000 that 17 years later SPLIT would blow all of our minds by being set in the same universe? Now, two years later we get to see the first offering of the M. Night Shyamalan comic book superhero world. Shyamalan has a very odd ability to make either fantastic, out-of-this-world, blockbusters, or heaping piles of putrid trash. This may be his first movie ever not to fall into one of those two categories. This film is not terrible in any way shape or form, however...

January is typically a pretty bad month for movies. All of the big awards stuff is crammed into the last several weeks of the previous year, and then January gets the leftovers. Well, somehow, this little gem of a film slipped through the system and landed in January. Maybe it's a new trend? After all, one of the first films released last year was PADDINGTON 2 and it made my Top 10 Best Films of 2018 list. I don't think this one is going to be that special, but it is really good. Bryan...

Keanu Reeves is at his best when he has very few lines of dialogue to deliver. That is why he is so great in the JOHN WICK films...he rarely says anything. Unfortunately, in this movie he talks constantly. Oh, dear reader, I can't begin to tell you the agony I was in while watching him try to be all dramatic and sciency. All I could think was, "this is a really poor man's version of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark in IRON MAN." And I feel like that is a terrible insult to RDJ. Aside from...

I was really hoping this would be a suspenseful film with a lot of think-on-your-feet moments. And I was pleasantly surprised that it lived up to that expectation for almost the entire movie. It felt a bit like watching a NATIONAL TREASURE movie, but with a quicker timeline and more violent and immediate chances at death. The acting isn't great, the ending leaves a lot to be desired, (if you were disappointed by the end of THE BELKO EXPERIMENT, expect to be disappointed again), and some of the tasks are just plain silly, but over all it...

On The Basis Of Sex

Most people know Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a long-standing U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Most people don't know that well before that she was a lawyer who took on the issue of gender inequality during a time when discrimination based on one's sex was the norm. One of the great things about this film is that it straddles the political line to perfection. It never feels like this film is pushing an agenda or mocking those on the left or the right. Sure, there are the lawyers she is fighting against that have their hardened stances, but they...

I would like to sarcastically thank the powers that be behind this film for releasing it so late in the year that I now have the extra work of going back and revamping my Worst 10 Films of 2018 list. You couldn't have waited one more week? Ugh. Ladies and gentlemen, this movie is a tragedy. It is amazingly unfunny, pathetically childish, boring, annoying, and a complete waste of everyone's time. In fact, it is so bad, I felt like I needed to do a public service, so during the movie I went...

Congratulations DC you managed to mess up another film that could have been amazing. Your track record is almost entirely unblemished in that effort. (Wonder Woman being the exception). Basically, this movie stinks like a fish. I will never understand how an office full of movie people can manage to make an entire movie that promises a massive climax, it gets marketed that way in every commercial and trailer, and then the film doesn't deliver the promise. Sorry for the spoiler, but there is no war between the land and sea. I think it...

As far as Transformer movies go, this one is pretty good. But you must remember, that is compared to other Transformer movies...and that is a VERY low bar. The good news is this movie actually offers some character depth, relationships, and emotions. Usually it just a bunch of explosions with the semi-truck running around yelling, "I am Optimus Prime!" For those of you that like the explosions, there are plenty. But for those of you that actually like a plot, you'll be pleasantly surprised. This is still a movie that you can't use...
