Movie Reviews: Baywatch and Afterimage

Baywatch is a comedic adaptation of the wildly popular 90s TV show starring David Hasseloff and Pamela Anderson. While stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron do their best with what they have, the movie struggles to find a groove and never quite produces the laughs it’s going for.

Movie Reviews: Alien: Covenant and Frantz

Alien: Covenant is the follow-up to Prometheus, itself a prequel to 1979’s classic horror film, Alien, all helmed by director Ridley Scott. Covenant is mostly successful as a straight thriller, but struggles a bit as it tries to ask big questions about humanity and its creator, though it does gets an A for effort.

Movie Reviews: Snatched and Growing Up Smith

Snatched is a very funny action comedy starring Amy Schumer and the legendary Goldie Hawn (Private Benjamin, The First Wives Club), in her first on screen performance in 15 years. The movie itself is solid, with director Jonathan Levine (50/50) delivering some solid action and plenty of outrageous situations, but it’s Hawn who is the main draw here and she does not disappoint.

Movie Reviews: The Fate of the Furious and Love & Taxes

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.

Movie Reviews: Going In Style and Neruda

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.

Movie Reviews: Kong: Skull Island and Get Out

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.
