“Knives Out” Is Smart, Clever, Tons Of Fun

HOLLYWOOD─I think one of the most difficult things to do in the cinematic universe is to manifest a smart, clever, and intelligent whodunit that totally knocks the socks off the audience. I cannot recall the last time I had such an entertaining time at the multiplex than when watching “Knives Out.” Not only does this thriller revolve around the...

“Bad Boys” Wins Box-Office Again

HOLLYWOOD─There were several new releases to the box-office over the weekend, but none of them were any competition for the sequel “Bad Boys For Life.” The third installment in the franchise remained at the top spot at the box-office earning $34 million. After its second weekend in theaters, Martin Lawrence and Will Smith have delivered $120 million for the...

“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?...

“Rampage” Is Silly, Action-Packed

HOLLYWOOD—Ok, I have seen a ton of silly films in my life-time and my one rule when I enter the movie theater is to be entertained. I have to point this out because it’s no secret: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has appeared in some movies that defy reality. As much as I was entertained by the disaster flick “San...

“Ant-Man And The Wasp” Pint-Sized, Fun

HOLLYWOOD—I was an absolute fan of “Ant-Man” because it was that Marvel comic that delivered the audience a superhero that was truly flawed. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) didn’t have this persona of being this holier than though character incapable of making mistakes. He was a petty thief, and as a result he found himself in a precarious situation, where...

“Venom” Is Devilish Fun

HOLLYWOOD—Not sure what every other critic was thinking when they saw the standalone flick “Venom,” but I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It had everything I wanted when it comes to a flick coming from the comic book universe and that is to be: ENTERTAINED. Now, is that to say that “Venom” is perfect? No, so as a critic you...

“Into The Spider-Verse” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—After ruling the box-office for more than 3 weeks the animated flick “Ralph Breaks the Internet” was finally dethroned. So what lucky flick managed to accomplish the feat? It was none other than: “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” with an impressive $35 million haul. I will argue I expected the animated feature which has been receiving high praise from critics...

“Green Book” Wins Big At Oscars!

HOLLYWOOD—It has arrived, the end of awards season culminated with the 2019 Academy Awards known by many as the Oscars. Going into the night the movies “Roma” and “The Favourite” led all contenders with 10 nominations apiece including Best Picture. However, with NO clear front-runner in the mix, it was a night full of twists and surprises just like...

“It: Chapter 2” Teaser Trailer Is Spine-Tingling

HOLLYWOOD—Anyone who knows me knows that I am a horror buff. I love a good scare, but the notion of terror in the horror genre has been dismal at best. Some filmmakers get it, but the problem is not many know how to actually deliver it to the audience. When the 2017 remake of the Stephen King classic “It”...

“Men In Black: International” Is No Classic!

HOLLYWOOD—It is hard to fathom that the original “Men in Black” hit theaters back in 1997. That sci-fi adventure starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as agents investigating alien lifeform on the planet Earth. The first flick was a classic, the sequel was quite exceptional and the third installment, while not bad wasn’t as good as audiences wanted...
