“Doctor Sleep” Fails To Cast A Haunting Spell

HOLLYWOOD─Just because a sequel can be made to any movie, does not mean every movie deserves a sequel. Can you believe the Stanley Kubrick horror flick (I would actually call it a psychological thriller) first hit theaters nearly 40 years ago in 1980? Yeah, it’s been awhile since fans have heard the phrase “Here’s Johnny.” However, Jack Nicholson is...

“Midway” Puts “Doctor Sleep” Away At Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD─Wow. That is the only word I can use to describe the utter mayhem. There were plenty of new offerings for moviegoers, but it was a drama and World War II flick, “Midway” which rose to the top spot with an impressive $17.5 million gross. For a movie that was barely advertised in my eyes, it sure captured the...

“Harriet” Is A Mixed Bag, Unexpected

HOLLYWOOD—I cannot believe its 2019 and this is the first time that a movie about abolitionist, slave and crusader Harriet Tubman is finally making its way to the big screen. I mean this is one of the greatest historical figures of all times and for it to take decades before this woman gets her due on the big screen...

“Jexi” Is Full Of Laughs

HOLLYWOOD—I recently had an argument with someone about how reliant we are on technology nowadays. I flash back to the golden days when I was a kid and we would play outside and adults had an actual conversation with people instead of completely staring at a device, notably a cell phone or tablet. This brings us to the comedy,...

“Terminator: Dark Fate” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—I really thought that the return of Linda Hamilton to the “Terminator” franchise after being absent for more than 30 years would revitalize the franchise for audiences, but that is not the case. Not even Hamilton and the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger could draw out audiences. “Terminator: Dark Fate” won the box-office over the weekend, but its victory was...

“Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil” Lacks The Punch!

HOLLYWOOD—Just because a movie strikes magic once, doesn’t mean it will necessarily strike magic twice. I’m referring to the sequel to Disney’s hotly popular “Maleficent.” Its sequel, “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” sees Angelina Jolie return to the villainess role. Jolie just plays evil so well America; it’s a testament to Jolie’s caliber and range as an actress. She does...

“Zombieland: Double Tap” Is Campy Fun!

HOLLYWOOD—Who could have imagined that precisely 10 years after its predecessor was released that the sequel “Zombieland: Double Tap” would be unleashed in theaters, with all of its core cast returning. Think about what I just said, its entire core cast returning. Yes, the 2019 sequel reunites Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin, all who have...

“The Shining” Is Unnerving!

HOLLYWOOD—My trend of exploring horror that hasn’t been on my radar is continuing just in time for Halloween, and this one is a good one to say the least. How so? I’m referring to the 1980 classic directed by the great Stanley Kubrick. Any guesses as to what movie I’m referring to? It is “The Shining.” Yes, it might...

“Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—After dominating the box-office for more than 2 weeks, the “Joker” finally dropped out of the top spot. Who was the lucky flick or shall I say villain that claimed victory? It was Angelina Jolie and her wicked portrayal of Maleficent, in the sequel “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” that earned $36 million. While the flick won the box-office, it’s...

“Gemini Man” Is Double The Mess!

HOLLYWOOD—Sometimes even the advancement of technology cannot save a bad movie. Rarely have I given passes to such things because in my opinion technology or visual effects are supposed to be a heightened effect of a story that is already being told. Look at it like a bonus. However, the genius touch of double Academy Award winner for Best...
