‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ is Lousy, Loud, Lazy and Long

I am thoroughly convinced that since he knows they will make money regardless of quality, Michael Bay has made these films louder, longer and more incoherent just as punishment to film critics who are forced to watch them. “Transformers: The Last Knight” is the fifth film of director Michael Bay’s “Transformers” series and follows Mark… Continue reading ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ is Lousy, Loud, Lazy and Long

A Masterful Plummer Elevates ‘The Exception’

Christopher Plummer’s lone Oscar was a career achievement award and I think the man has been criminally underrated in his career. “The Exception” is a romantic drama set in the early years of World War II. The plot follows a young Nazi officer (Jai Courtney) who is sent to keep an eye on the exiled… Continue reading A Masterful Plummer Elevates ‘The Exception’

Tupac Biopic ‘All Eyez on Me’ Isn’t That Well-Made, but I Liked it Anyways

This is being released on what would have been Tupac’s 46th birthday, and the fact that he’s been gone so long but is still having an impact on the music world is mind-blowing. “All Eyez on Me” is the long delayed and long overdue biopic about the rapper Tupac Shakur. Demetrius Shipp Jr., whose father… Continue reading Tupac Biopic ‘All Eyez on Me’ Isn’t That Well-Made, but I Liked it Anyways

‘Rough Night’ Just Isn’t That Funny

This movie will quickly be forgotten by most people, but it has skyrocketed Zoë Kravitz to the top of my future wife list. “Rough Night” follows a group of college friends who reunite 10 years later for a bachelorette party, only to have things go wrong when they accidently kill a stripper. Scarlett Johansson, Zoë… Continue reading ‘Rough Night’ Just Isn’t That Funny

‘The Mummy’ Should Have Stayed Buried

I don’t think an intended cinematic universe has ever started off with this big of a thud. “The Mummy” is a reboot of Universal’s titular franchise and the first intended installment of their “Dark Universe,” a collection of their most famous monsters from Frankenstein to the Wolfman. Here, Tom Cruise stars as a treasure hunter… Continue reading ‘The Mummy’ Should Have Stayed Buried

‘Captain Underpants’ About as Fun as a Wedgie

Well, they can’t all be “The Boss Baby.” “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” is an adaptation of the children’s book series of the same name. The film stars Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch as two elementary schoolers who hypnotize their mean principle (Ed Helms) into becoming a superhero. Nick Kroll, Jordan Peele and Kristen… Continue reading ‘Captain Underpants’ About as Fun as a Wedgie

‘Wonder Woman’ a Different Kind of Blockbuster that (Mostly) Succeeds

All it took for the DC Extended Universe to get on track was pairing a director who hasn’t made a film in 14 years with a female character who has never had her own movie. “Wonder Woman” is the fourth installment of the DCEU, and follows Amazonian goddess Diana Prince as she accompanies an American… Continue reading ‘Wonder Woman’ a Different Kind of Blockbuster that (Mostly) Succeeds
