Bumblebee: Movie Review

All in all, Bumblebee was the ultimate underdog movie and a brilliant film about loyalty and friendship. Bumbleblee also set itself apart from the rest of the franchise for being more of a family movie than action adventure like its predecessors. Kudos to Christina Hodson for her excellent script and Travis Knight for his excellent direction. This installment was entertaining from start to finish and was a perfect prequel to jumpstart the rest of the franchise. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss it. … Read More Bumblebee: Movie Review

Extinction: Movie Review

All in all, Extinction had a commendable idea to turn the tables on the viewers with an unlikely twist and while overall, the strong cast and concept worked together well enough, it seems as though it was missing something quite essential to catapult the movie to epic proportions. Still, it was a good popcorn movie and an entertaining sci fi film for fans of the genre.… Read More Extinction: Movie Review

Bird Box: Movie Review

All in all, Bird Box was a cross between an M. Night Shyamalan and a John Kransinki brainchild. I know you would agree once you’ve seen it. The vibe is too strong it is undeniable. Not too shabby, this thriller, and passing marks all around. I would disagree with anyone who will way that its all just hype though. Bird Box was pretty good on its own. Not the best, but still good. … Read More Bird Box: Movie Review

Black Mirror’s Bandersnatch: Movie Review

All in all, I was a bigger fan of the idea than the actual Black Mirror special. Judging by Black Mirror standards, it was quite consistent with the thought provoking theme of the series but it didn’t have as much impact as its predecessors. Still, as the first of its kind interactive streaming episode, it was solid enough to spawn a follow up. However, I can’t count myself as a fan of this type of set up just yet because it definitely takes time to get used to. I would have to wait until it grows on me.… Read More Black Mirror’s Bandersnatch: Movie Review

One Great Love: Film Review

All in all, One Great Love was a good movie because it had a good core message that it did not stray from, a solid cast of actors to play the main roles and it had a nice pacing that kept audiences engaged just enough to invest in the characters emotionally. Most of all, it was very relateable because it was grounded on an idea that audiences would truly want to believe — that for each person, there is that One Great Love and that their love story is just waiting to be told. Most of all, it kept the audience wondering what Zyra’s final choice would be by giving each part of her love stories equal importance, holding their attention til the very end. That’s a mark of smart storytelling, right there. … Read More One Great Love: Film Review

Aurora: Film Review

All in all, Aurora was more hype than substance. While it was not entirely bad, I was not blown away by this horror movie.  Huge credit though to the cinematography and editing but the pacing was too snail paced to get me excited at any point of the film. So, if you don’t fall asleep from the lengthy dialogue and the depressing cloud that Leana carries around with her everywhere she goes, congrats to you. Patience is a virtue for this flick but I wasn’t sure that the payoff was equal to the set up. In the end, I don’t know if it was a  more effective social commentary than a horror. … Read More Aurora: Film Review

Rainbow’s Sunset: Film Review

All in all, Rainbow’s Sunset had a loftly goal and the tools to achieve it. However, it became too greedy and tried to bite of more than it can chew by opening doors that it could not close by the movie’s end. As a result, the film felt like scattered pieces of a puzzle that never quite became whole. It felt incomplete and audiences feel like they have been cheated out of something amazing by the time they leave the cinema. I get it. I appreciate the message, but the execution left a lot to be desired. … Read More Rainbow’s Sunset: Film Review
