Happy Death Day – A fun spin on a familiar genre

I admit it, the trailer with the 50 Cent rap got me wanting to watch this movie despite the played-out, groundhog day storyline. The second reason for me to watch this movie is the lead, Jessica Rothe. U need someone who is magnetic and charismatic to carry this movie because she is in every single … Continue reading

IT, the new classic

I did not expect to like this movie as much as I do. This is a perfect example of a good movie. Good movie will connect with the audiences and transcend it’s own genre to become a favorite of moviegoers and dare I say, over time, categorized as a classic. I have never seen the … Continue reading

VILLAINESS – La Femme Nikita, Korea style!

Step aside Atomic Blonde, there is a new bad ass assassin in town. Starting with John Wick the trend of stuntmen helming action movies continue. It make perfect sense to hand a kinetic action movie to the hand of a stunt man because all the audiences want to see in an action movie, are just … Continue reading

BIRTH OF THE DRAGON tethering on the edge watchability

I was curious about the uproar by the Chinese Asian community over this American made movie about Bruce Lee, their legendary martial art hero. If you search on Google, you can easily find the trails of hateful comment about the continued whitewashing of Hollywood movies that dismissing other race in it’s movies. So much so … Continue reading

GOOD TIME is the opposite of the title.

If there is a trailer to a movie that make me DO NOT want to see the movie it’s promoting, it’s the trailer to GOOD TIME. The frenetic and in-your-face macro camera shots of scenes shown in the trailer pretty much gave you an inclination of a trainwreck the main characters of the movie will … Continue reading

The Hitman’s Bodyguard hits all the marks.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard lives up to it’s trailer’s teaser and then some. The laughter and action sequences bookend this movie from start to finish. Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson are like the modern version of Mel Gibson and Danny Glover from Lethal Weapon if their roles are reversed. The chemistry between both leads worked … Continue reading

LOGAN LUCKY – The working class version of Ocean’s 11…sort of.

Steven Soderbergh is definitely one of the most talented director in Hollywood who also act as the cinematographer for all his movies. I mean this cat can frame and light a scene to make a mundane set up look very interesting. This ability is apparent throughout Logan Lucky where the locations in the entire movie … Continue reading

Annabelle: Creation – a great addition to the new wave of horror classics.

I am very impressed with the current crops of recent horror films that pick up the mantle left by their 70’s era predecessors and move the genre forward. We have had a drought of terrible horror movies made for the audiences with bad taste and craving torture porn with no real redeeming storytelling finesse. In … Continue reading

The very underrated WIND RIVER, ladies and gentlemen…

Nowadays it’s very hard to find a gem of a murder mystery thriller that’s original. When you see one that’s as good as Wind River and it does not get the attention and exposure it deserve, you want to spread the word far and wide so other people can share the experience. The critics currently … Continue reading

The Survivalist – taut and never boring.

In order to keep me awake during a midnight screening, a movie has to pique my curiosity throughout it’s entire run time. The Survivalist did just that. There are only three characters in pretty much the entire movie and the script has to be constructed in such a way to keep the story going and […]
