“Toy Story 4” Is Charming, Fun

HOLLYWOOD—“Toy Story,” it is perhaps heralded by many as one of the greatest animated flicks of all-time. I mean this franchise has the ability to leave grown adults crying out their tears. I honestly thought after “Toy Story 3” the franchise was done. It ended on such a climatic note with Woody, Buzz and the gang realizing that Andy...

“Men In Black: International” Is No Classic!

HOLLYWOOD—It is hard to fathom that the original “Men in Black” hit theaters back in 1997. That sci-fi adventure starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as agents investigating alien lifeform on the planet Earth. The first flick was a classic, the sequel was quite exceptional and the third installment, while not bad wasn’t as good as audiences wanted...

“Lion King” Wins Box-Office Again

HOLLYWOOD—There weren’t many major movies hitting the box-office the past weekend, but there was one notable name hoping to dethrone “The Lion King” from the top spot at the box-office. That name was Quentin Tarantino. It’s still hard for me to fathom that Tarantino has only completed nine movies during his almost 30 years in the industry. The one...

“The Lion King” Is No Classic!

HOLLYWOOD—Trying to reimagine a Disney classic is a surmountable feat. I mean “The Lion King,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Dumbo” and “The Jungle Book” are just some flicks that are trying to outdo the animated classic. I’ll be honest, I really only enjoyed “Beauty and the Beast” out of the plethora of flicks at this point. Why? There was...

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” Is Dazzling!

HOLLYWOOD—Look, I have always been a fan of the “Spider-Man” movies. For me they return me to my youth and the character of Peter Parker I think resonates with so many Americans. Now, let’s be clear I was not a fan of the fact that the franchise has now had 3 actors portray the iconic character, Tobey Maguire, Andrew...

“The Lion King” Dominates Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—At last a movie finally shook the box-office with summer coming to an end. The live-action version of the Disney classic “The Lion King” dominated the box-office with an impressive $185 million haul. Yes, that’s huge considering many of the critics and a lot of people who I spoke to adored the flick visually, but on a narrative pinpoint,...

“Far From Home” Continues Dominance At Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—For the second consecutive weekend, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” was victorious at the box-office taking in $45.3 million at the box-office. The sequel has amounted a domestic tally off $275 million since its release. “Toy Story 4” landed in second place with a gross of $20.7 million. On an international scale, “Toy Story 4” has grossed over $771 million. Debuting...

“Child’s Play” Fails To Impress

HOLLYWOOD—You might think I’m joking, but what I’m about to tell you is NO JOKE! Growing up I had a toy known as My Buddy. It looked just like Chucky when the original “Child’s Play” came out in 1988. Fast-forward to nearly 30 years later and we have a remake to that iconic classic, this time with Mark Hamill...

“Shaft” Is Slightly Entertaining

HOLLYWOOD—Here is the problem with remaking a movie that was a remake of the original movie: you have to bring something fresh to the table. When I heard they were remaking “Shaft” the character made iconic by Richard Roundtree yet again, my eyes rolled in the back of my head. They did a double roll when I heard Samuel...

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—The Fourth of July holiday may have fallen near the end of the week, but that didn’t stop movie fans from hitting the multiplex. Why? The sequel, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” dominated the box-office with an impressive $185 million haul since its release on July 2. Not bad, not bad at all, and a bigger debut than its predecessor...
