Snowden

Snowden

What ever your take is on Edward Snowden; patriot, traitor, or something in between, we cannot deny that he did something that changed our government forever. Let me begin by stating the fact that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Night Rises, Looper, 500 Days of summer) is one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood at ..

Bridget Jones’s Baby

Bridget Jones’s Baby

As someone who thinks a 3rd movie in a series should never be made, I was hesitant with this one, especially being such a big Bridget Jones fan. I was concerned they would find ways to torture BJ and make us listen to her whine even more. WRONG. This movie was hilarious, sweet, and everything ..

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad Sometimes is good to be bad…not this time around! As I have said so many times in the past, yes I am a nerd and comic books are my sanctuary. After a summer of ups and downs, Suicide Squad (SS) had the potential to be the one people would remember. After the flop ..

Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters As far as sequels go, this one wasn’t completely terrible. With an All-Star cast we knew it wasn’t going to completely suck. While Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy were leading the way, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones stole the show. They kept me interested when the plot got a little too ridiculous and out ..

The Purge: Election Year

The Purge: Election Year

The Purge: Election Year As a third installment in the Purge Series, screen writer and co-producer James DeMonaco has finally created a movie that truly seems to embrace his original theme in the form of a political horror film. It’s “election year” and Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell) is a front runner as a Presidential ..

The Shallows

The Shallows

The Shallows Let me begin by saying that I am a “Shark Week” aficionado. I have been watching Shark Week since it’s inception and have not missed one since, so it was only obvious that I would be screening The Shallows during Shark Week. The Shallows is not a horror film as advanced publicity is ..

Neon Demon

Neon Demon

I walked into the Neon Demon not having any idea what I was going to see and I left the movie having no idea what I just saw! I honestly think that Neon Demon might be the most messed up, disturbing, confusion, yet curiously interesting movie I have seen in years. Danish director Nicolas Winding ..

Free State of Jones
