“It: Chapter Two” Spooks Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—Everyone knew the sequel to the 2017 hit “It” would draw big numbers at the box-office. The question everyone wanted to know is rather the flick would surpass its predecessor in terms or box-office receipts. “It: Chapter Two” had a big weekend taking in over $91 million during its first three days in theaters. It falls short of the...

“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...

“Angel Has Fallen” Is Action-Packed

HOLLYWOOD—I thoroughly enjoyed the 2013 flick “Olympus Has Fallen,” the follow-up “London Has Fallen” was not bad, and now we have our third entry “Angel Has Fallen.” Gerard Butler returns as U.S. Secret Service Agent Mike Banning, who is on another mission to save the country, but at the same time clear his name in the process. It is apparent...

“Angel Has Fallen” Wins Box-Office Again

HOLLYWOOD—I’ve always said the end of summer is the worst time for the box-office and this weekend proved it yet again. Yes, summer might be coming to an end and one would LIKE to think this would make people want to go to the theaters, but there is just too much to do to catch a movie. Last week’s...

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...

“Angry Birds 2” Is Awful!

HOLLYWOOD—I always attempt to find the good in any movie, but sometimes there are those movies that are so bad, no matter how hard you try there is nothing you can do to see the positive. Very rarely has an animated movie bored me to the death, but you can now include “The Angry Birds Movie 2” to that...

“Spider-Man” Chaos, New “Matrix” Movie!

HOLLYWOOD—News in Hollywood left people aghast on Tuesday, August 20 as it was revealed that the popular comic book hero, Spider-Man might be leaving the Marvel Universe. Ugh, this sucks greatly and I mean greatly because we had the iconic character appear in “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: End Game.” Yeah, and with the snap...
