The Wedding Ringer (2015) Movie Review “Replace the R in Ringer with an S and You Have A Great Movie”

Around this time last year we had a different Kevin Hart led comedy “Ride Along”.   No, I did not like that film one bit, in fact it made my top 10 worst films of the year.  I haven’t actually seen any of Kevin Hart’s stand up, so for all I know he could be the… Read More The Wedding Ringer (2015) Movie Review “Replace the R in Ringer with an S and You Have A Great Movie”

The Imitation Game (2014) Movie Review “Equals Part Inspiring and Part Tragic”

It’s almost amazing that with all the many World War II documentaries out there, that there still new stories coming out about that era all the time.  Some are minuscule and some almost change our entire perception about the war itself.   One of those stories  that is finally coming it light is the story of… Read More The Imitation Game (2014) Movie Review “Equals Part Inspiring and Part Tragic”

Whiplash (2014) Movie Review “Astounding, Profound, Thrilling, Emotional, an Absolute Masterpiece”

Film is my life’s passion.  Since I was a little kid I’ve always loved movies (hence why I have this movie blog).  Outside of that passion lies a few others of mine. There is Baseball (which a few might pick up on my baseball analogies I like to use) and I also love music.  I… Read More Whiplash (2014) Movie Review “Astounding, Profound, Thrilling, Emotional, an Absolute Masterpiece”

Nightcrawler (2014) Movie Review “This Generation’s Taxi Driver”

No it’s the awesome “X-Men” character we all fell in love with from the opening scene of “X2”, it’s Jake Gyllenhaal as Louis Bloom.  This is a movie I’ve been trying to get a chance to see for a while now and I finally have!  Writer Dan Gilroy makes his exceptional directorial debut with possibly… Read More Nightcrawler (2014) Movie Review “This Generation’s Taxi Driver”

The Theory of Everything (2014) Movie Review “Strongly Acted but Falls Short of It’s Aspirations”

All film is a subjective form of art and entertainment.  In that realm of possibility, we are all going to have different opinions on whether a film is good or not.  I came into “The Theory of Everything” quite excited and came out rather disappointed.  “The Theory of Everything” is a technically good film, well… Read More The Theory of Everything (2014) Movie Review “Strongly Acted but Falls Short of It’s Aspirations”

Paddington (2015) Movie Review “Both Whimsical and Charming”

“Paddington” is a live action family adventure that could have gone horribly wrong.  How could I make this presumption?  That presumption is from the sad line of movie history of taking beloved cartoon animals and translating them to a live action CGI environment.    Just take a look at such classics as “Scooby-Doo”, “Garfield”, “Marmaduke”, and… Read More Paddington (2015) Movie Review “Both Whimsical and Charming”

American Sniper (2014) Movie Review “A Solid, Sometimes Sloppy War Epic with Some Excellent Acting”

The best theater around the area I live is about a 45 minute drive south of me.  Sure, we have a local one but it’s a bit down and dirty in comparison.  With so much hype around “American Sniper”, I thought this would be worth me traveling 45 minutes to see it in the best… Read More American Sniper (2014) Movie Review “A Solid, Sometimes Sloppy War Epic with Some Excellent Acting”

Taken 3 (2015) Movie Review “Takes the Final Nail To It’s Coffin”

I, like so many other people, really enjoyed the first “Taken” starring Liam Neeson that first debuted in early 2008.  It was tense, edgy, exciting, action packed, well performed, and engaging, “Taken” helped usher in a new era for the career of Liam Neeson as an “old man action star”.  I did actually look forward… Read More Taken 3 (2015) Movie Review “Takes the Final Nail To It’s Coffin”

The Interview (2014) Movie Review “What We’ve Come to Expect From Franco and Rogan”

Controversy, hacking, on the brink of world war III, all that things that a Seth Rogan and James Franco comedy should not be able to cause.   “To Kill a Mockingbird” has nothing on “The Interview”.  Yes, we live in a world where something as outlandish as a Rogan, Franco comedy was able to make more… Read More The Interview (2014) Movie Review “What We’ve Come to Expect From Franco and Rogan”
