“Extraction” Is Intense, Full Of Heart

HOLLYWOOD—I had heard plenty of buzz about the Netflix film “Extraction” starring Chris Hemsworth, and because of the buzz I thought I would give the film a shot. Little did I know that the movie would be as intense, action-packed and the one thing I didn’t expect: full of heart. This honestly may be one of the best performances...

Movie Marathon, “A Nightmare On Elm Street” Series!

HOLLYWOOD─Last week we talked about indulging in a movie marathon during this quarantine that involved one of the most iconic horror villains of the 80s in Jason Voorhees and the “Friday the 13th” franchise. This week I want to turn the attention to another iconic villain of the 80s, one whose terror I think is more relenting because it...

“The Banker” Delivers Powerful Punch

HOLLYWOOD─I always say I’m not the biggest fan of movies that force America to reflect back on its ugly history, while questioning if enough has been done to acknowledge that we’ve come much farther than what we claim. I absolutely had trepidations about watching the film “The Banker,” but I am indeed glad I gave it a shot. Why?...

“The Photograph” Is Not What It Seems

HOLLYWOOD─Black romance, it is something not seen that often on the big screen, and I really cannot give a reason as to why that is not the case. When it is seen, it is from the viewpoint of a comedy, not an actual drama, until now. “The Photograph” reminded me a ton of “The Notebook,” where it relies heavily...

“Trolls World Tour” Is Family Fun

HOLLYWOOD─We all know when it comes to sequels rarely do they surpass their predecessor. Most are terrible, but in rare cases some entertain just as much as their predecessor. That is the argument I’m making for “Trolls World Tour.” The first installment in the franchise hit theaters back in 2016 and had that inescapable hit “Can’t Stop the Feelin’”...

Movie Watching, “Friday The 13th” Marathon!

HOLLYWOOD─I don’t know what to say, but I have been a fan of the “Friday the 13th” films since I was a little kid, probably since the age of 4 or 5. I have ALWAYS been a fan of horror films, but let me be crystal clear (node to Crystal Lake), I am NOT a fan of 80s slasher...

Movie Watching Madness

UNITED STATES─So many people have been telling me just watch a movie if you’re bored, and I tell them I’ve watched so many movies I just cannot watch anymore. I think this is particularly the case when it comes to watching movies on cable TV. It’s like we pay all this money for all these channels, but there is...

“Onward” Showcases Brotherly Bond

HOLLYWOOD─There is not much animated cinema out there to entertain the kiddies nowadays, but if there was one that can be uplifting and powerful it’s the Pixar flick “Onward.” Upon first glance it looks like all the other animated movies out there, but there is indeed something a bit special about “Onward.” What is it? It highlights the bond...

“Spenser Confidential” Is Highly Entertaining

HOLLYWOOD─I heard plenty of buzz about this action-thriller starring Mark Wahlberg that was on Netflix. I hadn’t thought much of it, but with a bit of spare time on my hands I gave the flick “Spenser Confidential” a viewing, and dare I saw I was quite surprised. Look, I wouldn’t tout my film expertise, but I have to say,...

“The Hunt” Is Polarizing Cinema

HOLLYWOOD─I see why this movie has been delayed, why it has been so highly controversial. If you’re not certain what film I’m referring to, I’m talking about “The Hunt.” Polarizing is just one of the words that I can use to describe the premise and the way this movie unfolds. Political? Yes! Violent? In ways that you can only...
