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 […]

SLEIGHT is a sly no budget sleigh of hand.

I went to see Sleight strictly based on the 36 seconds trailer teaser and the promise of  “Ironman cross with Chronicle” and I have to say, for a no budget movie, this little film manage to capture my attention all the way through until the end when it promise something bigger and the screen cut … Continue reading

Free Fire – Reservoir Dogs it is not.

I went in to this movie fully aware that the entire movie took place in a room, much like Reservoir Dogs. However, the story is not nearly as interesting or as suspenseful as that Tarantino’s classic. By the second half of the movie, all the actors were crawling through the remaining part of the movie. … Continue reading

The Belko Experiment: a short but sweet experience.

If you have seen the preview to this movie, you already know what to expect from this movie. However, the director still have a few tricks up his sleeve to toy with the audience expectations on the characters in movies like this; which made it thrilling fun to watch.  Tony Goldwyn is now the official … Continue reading

Good bye, Wolverine

It’s amazing to think that Hugh Jackman has taken on the role of Wolverine for 17 years. I knew nothing about the X men universe when I watched the first X men. I still do not know much about that universe because I stopped reading comic books since I was 18. That did not diminish … Continue reading

Jordan Peele’s GET OUT lives up to its hype.

Okay, I initially scoffed at the preview of GET OUT because it was shown so many times during previews in movies I watched. I blew off every single advance screening of GET OUT that I was invited to because I refused to stay in line to watch a movie that I was not very interested … Continue reading

John Wick, Chapter 2: The excitement continues.

It felt like not very long ago when I brought a friend of mine to a screening of the first John Wick in an uptown cinema. Not until we arrived had we realized that we were actually attending the world premier of the movie John Wick. We also found out, when we get our seat … Continue reading

The light hearted but action-heavy sequel to the XXX franchise is entertaining…, if you don’t take it seriously.

If you take the implausibly ridiculous opening sequences of all the James Bond movies and line them up together to make them into a 107 minute film, you will get XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE. It’s not to say the movie is not entertaining. The Return Of Xander Cage is a bonafide action comedy  … Continue reading

Sleepless and Familiar

I had a sense of deja vu when I read the title of the movie and premise. But not until about 15 minutes into the movie that it dawned on me, I have seen this movie before in the original French 2011 version called Sleepless Night (Nuit Blanche) starring Tomer Sisley in Fox’s Vincent character. … Continue reading

Selene returns in Underworld: Blood War

Fans of Underworld franchise know that all Underworld installments do not possess exciting script narrative and logic, and they are okay with that. I know, I am one of those fans. What the fans really want to see in the Underworld franchise is how amazing Kate look in the black latex S&M-inspired outfit, running around … Continue reading
