“Bad Times At The El Royale” Misses The Mark

HOLLYWOOD—When it comes to crafting a mystery/thriller it’s important to have all the right elements: interesting characters, a fun narrative and twists along the way. The movie “Bad Times at the El Royale” has most of those elements, but they don’t all mesh in sync to deliver the type of movie that you expect. The movie has a stellar...

“A Madea Family Funeral” Offers Familiar Laughs

HOLLYWOOD—After more than 14 years of portraying an iconic character on the big screen, Tyler Perry has finally decided to hang up the dress for portraying the smart-mouthed, gun totting character Mabel ‘Madea’ Simmons. Perry has resumed the role of Madea for his final appearance of the character in the latest comedy “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral.” The...

“Brightburn” Is A New Realm Of Horror

HOLLYWOOD—When was the last time you saw the superhero genre turned upside down on its head? Yeah, think about that one for a minute. A new genre has been dropped on audiences in the realm of superhero horror, I would almost compare it slightly to the CW series “Supernatural,” but even that flick doesn’t dive as deep as the...

“Pacific Rim Uprising,” Lots Of Fun

HOLLYWOOD—The first “Pacific Rim” flick which arrived in 2013 was met with timid results. I don’t think it was a bad film, but it was slightly different than what audiences expected. On top of that it wasn’t some groundbreaking sci-fi adventure that was delivering something to audiences we had seen before. Well, I guess you can argue it was...

“Fallen Kingdom” Is Enchanting

HOLLYWOOD—It was the movie in 2015 that took the summer box-office by surprise. Yes, I’m referring to “Jurassic World” which earned over $200 million during its debut to become the largest opening at the box-office for a three-day weekend at the time. I think it shocked so many people because you never expected it. The film brought the world...

“The Predator” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—Considering the bevy of new flicks entering theaters this past weekend, I thought it might be a battle to the finish, but was I ever so disappointed, but that end result. “The Predator” rose to the top spot at the box-office, with a mediocre $24 million haul. That is a major disappointment in my eyes because I expected the...

“Widows” Borders Classic Heist Thriller

HOLLYWOOD—The last time I recall watching a heist flick that entertained me thoroughly and left me in a tizzy was the 2003 flick “The Italian Job.” The movie was riddled with great performances, a fun narrative and twists galore that continued to leave the audience guessing. You can now add another flick to that list, Steve McQueen’s “Widows.” Yes,...

“Glass” Is Slightly Underwhelming

HOLLYWOOD—Never in a million years did I expect while watching the psychological thriller and must-see film “Split” that it was a sequel to M. Night Shyamalan’s 2000 film “Unbreakable.” That twist at the end was glorious and a smart reveal, but it was not as great as that twist in “The Sixth Sense.” Yes, the writer and director has...

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...
