Dark Tower Movie Review

I do not aim with my hand; he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I aim with my eye. I do not shoot with my hand; he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I shoot with my mind. I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father. I kill with my heart. WOW! What a fun movie. The Dark Tower, from Sony, is an adaptation of a series of 8 Stephen King novels published between 1998 and 2004. It’s REALLY dark and angsty. I thoroughly enjoyed having an adaptation that was dark and brooding. A troubled youth, learns he has the ability to dream into another world, and seeks it out. Thought crazy by his peers and parents he ventures into this other universe to find the Gunslinger (Idris Elba) and save The Da...

Valerian – Movie Review

Very few movies have the ability to make me audibly say “WOW” in the theater. I did that four times in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. It is easily one of the most visually stunning movies I’ve ever seen and evokes the same imagination and wonder as Avatar and Tomorrowland. That’s right, I said it. Luc Besson (heavy on the O, apparently, I always pronounced it BEHson, it’s BehSOHN) is a mad genius. I create worlds for a living and he made me look like a 4-year-old playing “make-believe” in the front yard. To set the tone at the very beginning of the movie, we’re thrust into space. From the moon landing to the establishment of the first space station, we see humankind evolving. 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. Then the inevitable happens,...

Spider-Man: Homecoming – Movie Review

Being a teenage boy is hard work. You have to balance school, sports, band, girls, changes in your body, and being Spider-Man. Wait what? Peter Parker, the story we’ve seen a thousand times with Toby, Andrew and now Tom Holland. However, I must say that with the full support of Marvel and the reuniting of Spidey into the MCU, this one had a totally different feel. A new high-tech spidey suit from Tony Stark, high school woes, a goofy mascot best friend, a love interest that goes sideways with a crazy twist, TWICE. Spider-Man is coming off the heels of his Avenger Team-Up from Civil War, (we see clips of that in the film, pretty cool actually to see it from the kid’s point of view), and he wants nothing more than to drop out of school and be an Avenger, unfortunately there is a ...

Baby Driver – Movie Review

This weekend saw the release of one of the coolest films I think I’ve ever seen… Baby Driver. The music, cinematography and editing on this were SO tight, I think they probably spent months in post production syncing every scene. Baby is a driver, not just that, he’s a phenomenal driver, but due to some unfortunate circumstances he’s had to drive for some very bad people doing some very bad things. This is the story of how that all changed once he fell in love with a girl named Debora. The baddies played by John Hamm (Hammsome, as he’s called by many) Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey and Eiza Gonzalez are BRILLIANTLY depicted with just the right amount of crazy. Ansel Elgort and Lily James do brilliantly as the young lovers just waiting for their break in life to run ...

Wonder Woman – Movie Review

If you haven’t seen this in theaters, do it, do it now, then do it again tomorrow. I absolutely loved this movie. It’s empowering and shows a very underrepresented strong, confident yet vulnerable woman. She’s beautiful, powerful, and wonderful. In the tradition of female badass characters like any character Lena Headey has every portrayed, Mad Max’s Furiosa, Scandal’s Olivia Pope, Katniss, Rey and of course, Ripley, Gal Gadot carries the torch superbly in this film adaptation of the classic comic book series Wonder Woman, from DC Comics. DC will probably not pick up exactly from the books, given the success of the movie and the inspiration it is providing to countless girls across the globe. Just like 10 years ago when every boy wanted to be Iron Man I saw DO...

The Book of Henry – Movie Review

So, I want to preface this by saying that I always enter a theater with an open mind, and a bottle of water. I actually liked the film overall, despite the darkness….  

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

  Is there a more well known hero in entertainment, be it books, film, or even theater then King Arthur? I’m sure Robin Hood ranks up there but in the end it’s the OG equality crusader and his Knights of the round table. His fame is thanks mostly to the literary works depicting his adventures as his film outings to date haven’t exactly been widely well received. I’m not including myself in that, I love and have to the best of my memory always loved everything King Arthur. I’ve watched the Clive Owen version a dozen times, love Excalibur, hell, I even remember being enamored with a Saturday morning cartoon in the early 90’s that re-envisioned King Arthur and his knights as a high school football team that was transported to Camelot by Merlin…my bar isn’t high. You know what else I’ve a...

Review: The Promise starring Christian Bale

  I can’t believe I call myself a history buff when I had no idea the breadth of the Armenian genocide that took place in the early 1900’s. It’s kind of amazing that it took this long for a movie to be made about the events, I don’t know that there wasn’t and honestly there probably was, but I didn’t catch it. The Promise is a film that takes place before and during the extermination of Armenians by the Ottoman government during the last years of the Ottoman empire, a reported 1.5 million people were killed. The film follows Mikael, an aspiring physician who moves to Constantinople to learn medicine. Not long after arriving the genocide begins leading him on a long road to safety and through a love triangle…that is technically a love square, during his flight to saftey. At the same ti...
