Movie Reviews: Snatched and Growing Up Smith

Snatched

Cary, NC – 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.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Cary, NC – Based on the popular book of the same name, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a perfect playground for director Tim Burton (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands) to play in, as well as a great showcase for the amazing Eva Green (Casino Royale, Penny Dreadful). Read more

Cary, NC – Film is a rich art form with nuance and craft but talking about the finer point of a movie during a screening is rude and distracting to others.

Boss

Movie Review: The Boss

Cary, NC — The Boss is star Melissa McCarthy’s latest comedy, the second of which written by herself and her director husband. I can’t say I loved their last collaboration, Tammy, two summers ago, and unfortunately, I can’t say The Boss is as good as McCarthy’s other comedies Bridesmaids and Spy. The Boss falls somewhere in between, not quite hilarious, but I can’t say I didn’t laugh. Read more

Batman

Movie Review: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Cary, NC — I believe I stated in my review of Man of Steel a few years ago that I am, first and foremost, a Batman fan. Always have been and always will be. But Superman comes a close second and still means a great deal to me as a character. Read more
