The Fast & Furious franchise has defied expectation at almost every level at this point. Now on its eighth installment, no one could have guessed it would still be going at this point, or continue to be as fun as it is. Granted, at this point you’re either with these films or you’re not. Myself, I love them, and this latest entry only solidifies that enjoyment.
Going In Style is a remake of the 1979 movie of the same name, this time starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin as three lifelong pals who attempt to rob the very bank that took their life savings. Breezy, charming and carried by its three leads, Going In Style is a small and enjoyable crime caper that had me smiling from beginning to end.
Life tells the familiar story of astronauts aboard the international space station who discover life on Mars and get more than they bargained for. An excellent cast and tight direction make this otherwise standard sci-fi tale a cut above the rest.
Beauty and the Beast continues Disney’s winning streak with remaking their animated classics in live action. Director Bill Condon makes a sumptuous adaptation that, while slightly overlong, fondly and graciously recalls the original.
Kong: Skull Island is a monstrously good time at the movies. This latest iteration of King Kong wastes no time in getting to the good stuff, fills the screen with likable and memorable characters and features some truly insane action beats. That’s definitely a compliment by the way.
Logan is not your typical comic book movie. Director James Mangold has made a classic western/family drama that just so happens to feature superheroes. The result is a fantastic last at bat for Hugh Jackman as the titular mutant character, giving perhaps the best performance of his career and a chance to go out on top.
Director Gore Verbinski returns to the horror genre with A Cure For Wellness. The film is filled with atmosphere and terrifying imagery, and while it can’t quite stick the landing, credit must be given for Verbinski trying something so daring and dark on a big studio level.
The Lego Batman Movie strikes gold again, as the film has jokes and puns flying at you a mile a minute, while also sneaking in the fact that depending on your friends and family is A-OK!
Hello again! It’s my favorite time of year, Oscar time! 2016 was filled with so many incredible and diverse pieces of work and filled with performances by so many wonderful actors, and it’s great to see that this year’s nominees are almost all universally deserved.
