The Mummy 2017: Movie Review

I must give due credit to “Fringe” creator Alex Kurtzman, for his expert handling of this movie. While many critics have panned this reboot, I think “The Mummy” 2017 was fairly successful in kick-starting a new direction for future films. While the film draws some inspiration to the Brendan Fraser classic, it manages to separate itself from the original franchise to tell its own story. … Read More The Mummy 2017: Movie Review

Wonder Woman: Movie Review

All in all, DC is well on its way to perfecting its formula for its next offerings. I have a guess that with the addition of Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa to the franchise, they will play off the dark and brooding energies that its two main superheroes Superman and Batman have already displayed. Oh, and Wonder Woman doesn’t need to prove herself in upcoming installments, she kicked the boys asses with this movie, for sure.   … Read More Wonder Woman: Movie Review

Star Wars Rogue One: Movie Review

All in all, “Star Wars: Rogue One” was an ultimate underdog movie. It set about to tell the story of the unsung heroes of the alliance and it did so without sugarcoating or mercy. And that was why it was so important to the franchise. With the original trilogy, and even the extended franchise, a happy ending was expected but what does it really take to get to that happy end? Rogue One holds the answer. And this very same thing was what set it apart from any part of the franchise. … Read More Star Wars Rogue One: Movie Review

Beauty and the Beast: Movie Review

Although at times, it was weird and over the top to see the film executed as a live action because it felt like watching a stage play rather than a movie, director Bill Condon’s film was equal parts visually stunning, engaging and eerily nostalgic because of its attention to the details of the original film…. I still thought the original was better but the live action was a good effort by Disney and it delivered on the hype which is much more than I can say for other attempts to reboot classic franchises.… Read More Beauty and the Beast: Movie Review

Struck By Lightning: Movie Review

All in all, Struck by Lightning offered a witty and entertaining take on high school cliches but also did justice to the darker side that came with it as well. It was honest. It was raw and had characters that had a lot of heart. While they were portrayed as stereotypes, Colfer’s writing added layers to them to make the characters that audiences would connect with. At times, the film was harsh but it made no apologies for it. It was sad and at the same time happy because it delivered a real hard look at reality that resonated with the audience. Rather than go with gimmick, Colfer chose to depict truth. And it still blows my mind that it all came from the mind and heart of someone so young. Bravo!… Read More Struck By Lightning: Movie Review
