King Richard (2021) Review

Since the Oscar fiasco, no one seems to be talking about King Richard, the film Will Smith won Best Actor for. He delivered a brilliant performance as Richard Williams, the father of tennis icons, Venus and Serena. You can watch it now on HBO Max. The story is about Richard coaching his two daughters while instilling in them important life principles. This is criticized throughout the film as it was … Continue reading King Richard (2021) Review

Wer (2014) Review

This was a recommendation from the talented E.M. Lacey. She and I are both fans of werewolves. Wer released in 2014 and is a reimagining of the classic monster. The writer and director, William Brent Bell (The Boy, Stay Alive, Devil Inside) took a more grounded approach. I found it to be very effective and unconventional for this particular genre. The “found footage” style is … Continue reading Wer (2014) Review

Last Night in Soho (2021) Review

I became fixated on the projects of Anya Taylor-Joy after seeing her in The Witch. She had a look reminiscent of women in the golden age of Hollywood (1950-1967). Her roles tend to vary from genre to genre and she never fails to deliver, except for in New Mutants, that movie sucked. This time around she teamed up with relative newcomer, Thomasin McKenzie, in a … Continue reading Last Night in Soho (2021) Review

Don’t Breathe 2 (2021) Review

Someone with a nose full of cocaine when they green lit this movie. To add insult to injury, the sequel only took six years. It pissed me off with its poor quality and convoluted plot. The blind man, Norman Nordstrom (Stephen Lang), returned to do fatalities on home invaders. Its basically the same formula yet they managed to screw up every single aspect of the … Continue reading Don’t Breathe 2 (2021) Review

The Eternals (2021) Review

I don’t know why writers use terms like “immortal” when the characters die so easy. Marvel introduced yet another cosmic street gang that live for a long time and never age. It’s enough people in this movie for them to start their own football team. These alien beings were credited as shepherds of humanity throughout history. When old enemies arrived, they teamed up to defend … Continue reading The Eternals (2021) Review

Respect (2021) Review

Whoever was in charge of marketing needs they ass whooped. I had no idea there was a theatrical release. I jumped at the chance to rent it on VOD (video-on-demand). Aretha Franklin is an American icon! She’s done so much for both music and civil rights. She personally handpicked Jennifer Hudson to play this role. Hudson brought the fire; I’m talking’ scorched Earth. Her voice … Continue reading Respect (2021) Review

A Haunted House (2013) Review

I haven’t seen slapstick like this since Scary Movie. Marlon Wayans is a writer and producer as well as the star. He played the role of Malcolm, who moved into a new home with his wife. A couple of days later, supernatural things started happening. It’s parody of movies like Paranormal Activity and The Exorcist. I hollered every five minutes at the bizarre humor in … Continue reading A Haunted House (2013) Review

Jingle All The Way (1996) Review

He is the combination of 90s Sentai shows and Marvel’s Ironman. December is gone but I’m still in the holiday spirit. One Christmas film that stands the test of time is Jingle All The Way, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad. The film has a special place in my heart and you don’t have to wait until next year to watch it. Howard (Schwarzenegger), a father … Continue reading Jingle All The Way (1996) Review
