“Pokémon: Detective Pikachu” Is Subpar

HOLLYWOOD—There are those films made to appeal to all, and then you have those flicks that tend to have a specific audience they attempt to target. I’m not a major fan of such films because I believe true cinema can appeal to anyone, it just depends on how the script and characters are written and depicted rather that success...

“Long Shot” Offers Quality Laughs

HOLLYWOOD—Seth Rogen is a guy that many would deem a comedy genius. He has delivered some hilarious comedies in recent years. I mean I was baffled, but in the best possible way with the raunchy 2007 hit “Superbad.” He followed that success with the iconic “Neighbors” and the flick that every kid wanted to see, but were banned from...

“John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” Is Epic Fun!

HOLLYWOOD—He’s back, looks like Keanu Reeves has crafted himself a character that is just as memorable if not more fun than the stone-faced Neo from “The Matrix” franchise. I’m referring to John Wick, a former hitman who just wanted to be left alone after his wife died. However, some goons decided to go after his beloved dog Daisy, which...

“The Hustle” Misfires On Laughs

HOLLYWOOD—It seems Hollywood has become way too comfortable with remakes. Just become a film was made 50 plus years ago, does not warrant a remake let alone scream that we need one. It looks like the laughter was misplaced for the Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson comedy “The Hustle,” a remake of the 1988 flick “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” which...

“UglyDolls” Has Plenty Of Heart

HOLLYWOOD—I couldn’t help, but constantly compare the animated flick “UglyDolls” to the movie “Trolls.” It was that flick that had that catchy-tune by Justin Timberlake “Can’t Stop the Feeling.” However, as the audience gets deeper into the narrative these two films are so different. I thought “Trolls” was full of frenetic energy and music that placed you in a...

“John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—After having a tight grip on the box-office since its release on April 26, “Avengers: Endgame” has been dethroned from the top spot at the box-office by a worthy opponent no less. The third installment in the Keanu Reeves franchise “John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum” rose to the top spot with an impressive $57.2 million. Not bad as...

Classic Cinema Is The Best!

HOLLYWOOD—As a newbie to the world of cinema, you couldn’t get me to watch a movie in black in white or what many people deemed ‘Old Hollywood.’ For me, I thought those movies were out of touch with the modern world and the technology was so outdated it would take me longer than my interest to get acclimated to...

“Avengers,” “RBG” Lead MTV Movie And TV Awards Noms

HOLLYWOOD—It doesn’t have the same clout that it used to have, but I do like that the MTV Movie & TV Awards have eliminated gender from the acting categories to just focus on the best of the best. To be honest it would cut a significant amount of time and many award shows and bring an edge to the...

“Avengers: Endgame” Continues To Wow Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—“Avengers: Endgame” continued its domination at the box-office, but it was closer than I expected. Why? A popular character from back in the heyday made its return to the big screen in a live-action version. Do you recall the name “Pokemon?” Most of you know it, it was a major craze in the early 2000s, and the film “Pokemon:...

“It: Chapter 2” Teaser Trailer Is Spine-Tingling

HOLLYWOOD—Anyone who knows me knows that I am a horror buff. I love a good scare, but the notion of terror in the horror genre has been dismal at best. Some filmmakers get it, but the problem is not many know how to actually deliver it to the audience. When the 2017 remake of the Stephen King classic “It”...
