War For The Planet of the Apes

The “of the Planet of the Apes” films have been met with some pretty critical acclaim in the last few years, especially after the rebooted Planet of the Apes film was so dismal. And hey, for Rise? I totally agree. An amazing film, great acting and a plot that made me cheer for Apes instead …

LBJ

How many times do I have to watch JFK get shot? I mean, I am a young guy, so not as many times as some people who were alive back in the early ’60’s. But just last year we had Jackie, Parkland was about his death, and he probably died in The Butler. And now …

Wilson

Who the fuck is Wilson? Is this a movie about a volleyball? Those were the only thoughts I had going into this movie. And when I saw one poster, that it would be able a creepy dude. Not just any creepy dude. A creepy older dude, with glasses, and a beard. I also quickly learned …

The Edge of Seventeen

Coming of age films are a dime a dozen, and I don’t really understand if that means they are common or just cheap. But they are easy to cater to large audiences. Most adults used to be children, so at some point, they must have come of age. Put in some embarrassment, some universal feels, …

Now You See Me 2

Right off the bat, there is a big problem with Now You See Me 2. The big problem is that it is called Now You See Me 2. How in the hell do you have a movie named Now You See Me, and then fail to call the sequel Now You Don’t? It is a …

Triple 9

Say what you will about Triple 9‘s vague title, but I think we can all agree that it is a better title than just 999. This is one of the rare fun times where I actually know nothing about the film outside of movie posters and actors involved! But the director is John Hillcoat, who …

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

Hooray another franchise is over! After Harry Potter, I am grateful book series are still afraid to break from the trilogy format. Or else we’d get these yearly movies that drive up the box office and everyone freaks out about and so on. You know, like Marvel movies. Or the upcoming Star Wars films. One …

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

Ugh. So here we go. Brief recap of the series from my POV. Hunger Games – Too much training, not enough games. Too much shaky cam, not enough actual action. It is okay. 2 out of 4. Catching Fire – Figured the plot would be contrived and forced to be similar, but it wasn’t. A …

Out Of The Furnace

Out of the Furnace has the honor of being the only movie coming out this week, in a month that is typically packed to the brim with movies to take advantage of those holiday sales. It also has the honor of making me think of the Meatloaf song, “Out of the Frying Pan,” so much that whenever I …

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Before we get started, I should mention some things about The Hunger Games. I gave it a 2 out of 4. I also didn’t watch it until 5-6 months after it went to theater. Not surprisngly, I didn’t read the books, so I had no stake in it. I knew the rough outline. For some …
