AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR REVIEW

10 years, 18 films, was Infinity War worth all the hype? I loved how the Russos made this surprisingly accessible for fans who may not have obsessively watched the entire Marvel backlog beforehand or ever (Sacrilege, I know). Crucial plot points were covered BUT you would be missing out on a lot of character depth, … Continue reading AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR REVIEW

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE REVIEW

Welcome to the Jungle. We've got fun and Dwayne. Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game. When I first heard the rumours circulating about a Jumanji sequel/reboot/whatever, I screamed to the movie gods . . . Why?! Do … Continue reading JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE REVIEW

*NEW* A QUIET PLACE REVIEW *NEW*

Shhhhh--- Shocking. BUT for the right reasons? A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound. A tight, taut little thriller. Looks like Jim from The Office USA has a prosperous career in directing with his first foray into horror. AQP reminded me very much of M. Night Shyamalan's Signs … Continue reading *NEW* A QUIET PLACE REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* READY PLAYER ONE REVIEW *NEW*

Spielberg is back baby! But bigger and better? When the creator of a virtual reality world (Mark Rylance - The BFG) called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. An enjoyable romp. The man still knows how … Continue reading *NEW* READY PLAYER ONE REVIEW *NEW*

THE HOUSE REVIEW

The House always win? Not with jokes like these. After the town takes away their daughter's college scholarship, a couple (Will Ferrell/Amy Poehler) start an illegal casino in their friend's (Jason Mantzoukas) house to make back the money. Sheesh. What is going on with comedies these days? Look, I'm not looking for groundbreaking stuff BUT … Continue reading THE HOUSE REVIEW

ROUGH NIGHT REVIEW

Yikes! I’d rather have a rough night than watch this again. Things go terribly wrong for a group of girlfriends who hire a male stripper for a bachelorette party in Miami. A highly unfunny opening college flashback didn’t build my hopes up. It was good to see that ScarJo was up for a laugh BUT … Continue reading ROUGH NIGHT REVIEW

THE DARK TOWER REVIEW

The DULL Tower? With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only the last Gunslinger Roland Dechain (Idris Elba) can defend the Tower from Walter O'Dim (Matthew McConaughey), the Man in Black. BE WARNED. I've never read the Stephen King novels so do NOT murder … Continue reading THE DARK TOWER REVIEW
