Directed by Jon Favreau, “The Lion King “ is a live action remake of 1994’s Oscar winning iconic classic cartoon. My love for the original is strong so I was initially very skeptical about a new version, however, with its all star cast, magnificent visual effects and amazing musical score, Disney has hit a home ..
Toy Story 4 Ahh! Pixar has done it again. I was so very fearful that Toy Story 4 would not measure up to the first three, but Disney knocked it out of the park! Andy is all grown up and Woody (voiced by Tim Allen) is no longer the “favorite” and has had to take ..
When the original Secret life of Pets was launched I was skeptical. However it was innovative and very entertaining. The storyline was fresh and the characters were one of a kind. Fast forward to the sequel and I can’s say the same. This time, my 5 year old son was my critique in training and one of the highlights ..
If you enjoy British comedy and know who The Beatles are, your 2019 summer date night movie dreams are coming true. Yesterday introduces us to struggling-artist-turned-international-superstar Jack Malik, played brilliantly by Himesh Patel. The entire film is well-casted, in fact, with Ed Sheeran playing a caricature of himself that rounds out an ensemble of adorably ..
The latest (and probably last) movie in the hit or miss X-Men franchise is Dark Phoenix. It is the story of Jean Grey whose mutant powers become some of the most powerful in the Universe due to a space explosion in which some pretty powerful space matter invades her body. With an all-star cast such ..
As a kid growing up, I was glued to Godzilla movies (and the cartoon) almost every weekend. So, when I saw that Godzilla would be in a film again with Mothra, Rodan, etc…I couldn’t wait! This being said, fans of straight up monster vs monster mayhem will love this iteration for sure. Yes, the plot ..
Ok so here we go! With so much flack this film has received since the teaser trailer of a blue Will Smith. I was not only not looking for much, but had a film critic in training with me, my 8 year old daughter. Now, unlike her I grew up seeing the animated original ..
Full Disclosure: Before this movie, I’d only seen Pikachu in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. As it turns out, the character is every bit as adorably adventurous in Pokémon Detective Pikachu as he appears floating down the streets of New York in balloon form. From the very onset of the film, I knew there were ..
So in recent years there has been a raise in truly terrifying films lurking in the dark. Films such as Hereditary, The Babadook, The Witch, The Eyes of My Mother and the arrestingly weird Suspiria are all the products of indie visionaries spinning their relatively small budgets into gold. But The Conjuring, a lavish studio movie ..
When I say this film is a short 3 hours, you may think I’m crazy! But, in all honesty, there is so much story to tell on such a grand scale I felt that 3 hours was barely enough! Last we saw, the Avengers were picking up the pieces after Thanos erased half of the ..
