Elvis

Elvis

As an Elvis fan, I was very much looking forward to seeing this Biopic on his life. Director Baz Luhrmann did a marvelous job of showing viewers all of the triumphs and tribulations that Elvis went through from a young kid to global superstar. Let’s get one thing straight here…Austin Butler who plays Elvis is ..

Lightyear

Lightyear

I have always been a big fan of the Disney/Pixar movies and feel like they have always done a great job of being original, funny, heartfelt, and overall a great time for all ages. Lightyear did not really measure up to its predecessors in my opinion. Buzz Lightyear(Chris Pratt) takes viewers on a mission to ..

Top Gun: Maverick

Top Gun: Maverick

After seeing the original Top Gun ages ago (1986 to be exact), I thought it was a fun date movie, but nothing more. When I heard that a sequel was to come some 30 plus years later, I cringed at the thought of how bad it would be. Well, I was definitely caught off guard ..

The Batman

The Batman

The Batman…or is it? Ok, full disclosure. I am a Batman fanatic, which is why it took me a while to while to get this up. As I walked out of the screening a little over a week ago, I had mixed feelings about what I was going to be writing about. But the longer ..

Dune

Dune

Ok, so it no secret that I have been looking forward to a remake of this pretty much since I saw the original David Lynch 1984 which by his own admission he didn’t even like. Now I don’t blame Lynch for not being able to pull off an almost impossible task. In case you have ..

Space Jam: A New Legacy

Space Jam: A New Legacy

The new iteration of Space Jam was a delightful experience. LeBron James gives a surprising performance as a dad who is caught between wanting what he wants for his children and letting them be who they want to be. This theme permeates throughout the movie as LeBron and his young son, Dom, are held hostage ..

Black Widow

Black Widow

Black Widow is the origin story of Marvel Avengers’ Natasha Romanoff(Scarlett Johansson).  I was very pleasantly surprised at how entertaining this movie was!  The music, the cinematography, and the action scenes were all top shelf and must see and listen cinema! It is also nice to see the human element in Natasha and learn how ..

In the Heights

In the Heights

In the Heights is a wonderful musical film about the lower income residents in the Washington Heights district of New York City and their stories of struggle and triumph,  As a fan of musicals, I found this to extremely well done and very much entertaining.  Director John Chu brilliantly tells the stories while the music ..

The Conjuring – The Devil Made Me Do It

The Conjuring – The Devil Made Me Do It

The third movie in the Conjuring series showcases one of Ed and Lorraine Warren’s most difficult cases.  It starts with the struggle for the soul of a very young boy and when the evil spirit jumps  into an older Arne (Ruairi O’Connor), the race is on to prove that Arne was demon-possessed when he killed a ..

Godzilla vs Kong

Godzilla vs Kong

As a longtime Godzilla lover, this was one that I was very much looking forward to!  Although I personally think that Godzilla would destroy King Kong in any real life battle, for good movie purposes I understand what director Adam Wingard was aiming for.  This movie was a ton of fun with tons of action ..
