“Brahms: The Boy II” Is A Waste

HOLLYWOOD─I will admit that the 2016 movie “The Boy” had a very interesting premise. While not the most original, the idea of a doll being a potential evil spirit was a lure, but the big twist at the climax of the movie slightly killed the tension, but also perked up the audience in my opinion. I never expected a...

“Birds Of Prey,” Is A Mixed Bag

HOLLYWOOD─There were a ton of people out there that hated “Suicide Squad,” but I was not one of those people. I actually enjoyed the movie thoroughly and it was not because it had an exceptional narrative. It was because of standout, Harley Quinn portrayed by Margot Robbie. Robbie brought a level of chaos, manic excitement and just contagious energy...

“Fantasy Island” Is Nothing To Scream About

HOLLYWOOD─It is a new take on a TV classic, but it’s not as fun as one would think. I’m referring to “Fantasy Island” which is a place where one’s dreams can come true, but in this horror interpretation it’s where nightmares become reality. The premise follows five people who are brought to the island to live out their greatest...

“Spies In Disguise” Is Quite Funny

HOLLYWOOD─I seriously have to admit, I went into the theater with the smallest expectations for the animated feature “Spies in Disguise” starring the voices of Will Smith and Tom Holland. It seems like we do not see as many animated films a year as we should, but this flick was quite entertaining, and that’s a direct result of the...

“Birds Of Prey” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD─Well, “Bad Boys for Life” was finally dethroned from the top spot at the box-office, but the victor is considered a disappointment based on what is expected. The Harley Quinn spinoff, “Birds of Prey” claimed the top spot with $33.3 million. The Margot Robbie starrer which opened in more than 4,000 theaters was expected to debut to more than...

“Parasite” Wins Big At The Oscars

HOLLYWOOD HILLS─I hate to say this, but I am happy that awards season has come to an end America. Why? This has been perhaps the most predictable awards season that I can recall in years. It’s never fun when you know precisely who will win without any potential competitions. However, the granddaddy of all awards shows, the Academy Awards,...

“The Gentlemen” Is A Fun Ride!

HOLLYWOOD─I went into this movie with the lowest expectations and came out quite surprised. I’m referring to the crime dramedy “The Gentlemen” written, directed and produced by Guy Ritchie. Ritchie is known for having lots of control with his flicks, but this movie is just a hoot of fun people. Not only do we have an all-star cast, but...

Oscar Predictions For 2020

HOLLYWOOD─It seemed just yesterday the nominees for the 2020 Academy Awards were announced, and we’re already less than 1 week away from the actual awards being handed out. Normally I would do a breakdown of the predictions of the MAJOR SIX as I call them (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting...

“Bad Boys For Life” Is Action-Packed

HOLLYWOOD─It is hard to fathom that it has been nearly 17 years since viewer’s last saw Martin Lawrence and Will Smith together as the comedic-action duo of Marcus Burnett (Lawrence) and Michael Lowery (Lawrence) in the franchise “Bad Boys.” Both are back for the third installment in the franchise, “Bad Boys For Life” which sees are aging heroes reunite...

“Parasite” Big SAG Awards Winner

HOLLYWOOD─If there is one awards show I look forward to more than the Academy Awards it is the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The 2020 ceremony was held on Sunday, January 19, and it delivered some surprises. Some of you might be asking why the SAG Awards are so important: it’s because they are a major predictor of where Oscar...
