“Ready Or Not,” A Fun Thriller

HOLLYWOOD—I absolutely entered the theater with the lowest of lowest expectations for the thriller “Ready or Not.” It’s a cross of a comedy and horror that is quite intelligent and enthralls the audience once the movie gets going. The movie stars Samara Weaving, as newlywed Grace, who just married Alex De Lomas (Mark O’Brien). They say marrying into any family...

“Don’t Let Go” Is Minor Fun

HOLLYWOOD—This film has been teased as a mind-bender and let me tell you it is indeed, but it’s not along the realm of the thriller “Get Out” or “Us” even though it was heavily advertised that way to draw the audience to the multiplex. I’m referring to the film “Don’t Let Go,” starring David Oyelowo. Jason Blum places his...

“Downton Abbey” Victorious At Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—It was the TV version of an iconic series that dominated the box-office over the weekend. That series was the BBC series “Downton Abbey” that rose to the top spot with an impressive $31 million, dethroning “It: Chapter Two” from the top spot. I really didn’t think there was a massive audience for this series, but audiences came out...

“The Goldfinch” Is A Bore Fest!

HOLLYWOOD—I cannot recall the last time I was so bored and ready for a movie to end in recent years. I’m not calling it the worst movie I’ve ever seen, but “The Goldfinch” is a jumbled mess that I could not wait and I mean wait for this drama to end. The film is an adaptation of the popular...

“Hustlers” Is A Fun Ride!

HOLLYWOOD—Let me put this out there, if you’re going into the Jennifer Lopez starrer “Hustlers” to see stripping and actual nudity, you might be disappointed. Yes, the movie is about strippers, but its focus is NOT solely on women stripping and taking their clothes off. You might think that is a bad thing, but it is not. This movie...

“It: Chapter Two” Is Intense, Damn Scary!

HOLLYWOOD—I have been waiting since September 2017 to see how it would all end. It has been a very long time since a horror movie unnerved me, like the remake of “It” did. It was the first horror flick in quite some time that really placed children in the harm of evil and that opening sequence left me rattled....

“47 Meters Down Uncaged,” Lackluster Thrills

HOLLYWOOD—It seems every summer, we get another flick attempting to capitalize on the magic that Steven Spielberg managed to capture in 1975 with his blockbuster “Jaws.” How can I best say this? “Jaws” had something that many other shark flicks failed to capture: suspense, character development and an enthralling narrative. I will indeed give credit to the 2017 flick “47...

2019 Fall Movie Preview

HOLLYWOOD—I’ll just say it already: summer is over, and I think it may have been one of the worst at the box-office for summer movies that I can recall in years. With that said, it’s time to usher in not only my favorite season of the year, but some of the best flicks of the year as we slowly...

“Angel Has Fallen” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—There is a new champ at the box-office dethroning the unexpected victory from last week’s winner, “Good Boys.” The sequel “Angel Has Fallen” starring Gerard Butler won audiences over with an impressive $21.2 million haul over the weekend. However, its box-office performance shows the franchise has a bit of fatigue failing to exceed the expectations of “Olympus Has Fallen”...

“Good Boys” Is Hilarious!

HOLLYWOOD—When do you recall the last time watching a comedy that was so original, so side-splitting funny that it hurt your stomach? To be honest, I cannot recall the last time it happened, but the comedy “Good Boys” left me in stitches (in a good way America). Originality in comedy is a hard thing to accomplish, but writers Lee...
