If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) Review

What an unexpected surprise! When I saw I Am Not Your Negro in 2016, I was left wanting more from the mind of James Baldwin. Thanks to director Barry Jenkins, my wish came true.  If Beale Street Could Talk is a powerful film that was shot beautifully. Each frame was vibrant and poetic. It's been so long…

A Star Is Born (2018) Review

Didn't expect to get the feels watching this film. A Star Is Born definitely earned it's Academy Award. I was completely invested in the story and the journey of the two main characters. The songs were very memorable, Bradley Cooper was by far the biggest surprise to me. His vocals were pretty impressive. In case you…

Bird Box (2018) Review

So you want to know what the rave is all about huh? It's about this movie that took the concept of the smash hit A Quiet Place, and put their own twist to it. For a review on that film check out the link below. Unlike it's predecessor, Bird Box has a threat that can only harm you…

Aquaman (2018) Review

Have you ever seen something that sent chills through your body? Not in a sense of fear but excitement. That feeling was amplified when I saw James Wan's Aquaman. Wan is well-known for his work on films such as Saw, The Conjuring, Furious 7, and Insidious. He brings elements from all those blockbusters into this behemoth…

The Meg (2018) Review

I think it's safe to say we've all had our fair share of shark movies. Since Jaws, the quality of killer shark flicks have declined rapidly to the point where they're just comical. The Meg attempted to right this wrong but to no avail. It starts off as a serious film and quickly descends into a campy…

Extinction (2018) Review

Netflix has been trippin' as of late with all the doom and gloom films. Last month they had How It Ends, an apocalypse film about a guy trying to find his fiancee. Now they deliver this fast-paced stinker Extinction. It had such promise and a lot of talent to work with. Sadly they did not capitalize…

Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Review

There are no spoilers in this review. Just my thoughts on the film Avengers: Infinity War. This movie is insane! At this moment, I'm still recovering from shell shock. You think after watching Marvel movies for ten years, you'd be prepared. Let me assure you, no one is ready for this. Like, I just can't.…

A Quiet Place (2018) Review

Let me start by saying, I'm not easily startled. Yet this movie had me flinching in my seat. No hyperbole, I literally threw my arms up in the air to defend myself. It was not a 3D viewing and no I was NOT on drugs. A Quiet Place is genuinely scary as f*$k! It's really…

Acrimony (2018) Review

Over the years, I've come to dread projects produced by Tyler Perry. It seems like his films become progressively worse in quality and narrative. Acrimony was a terrible movie. I daresay horrific. It was such a bad movie that it was good. Me as well as the other nine people in the theater were laughing…

Rampage (2018) Review

I didn't have high expectations going into this. Most movies based on a video game suck! Rampage was no different. There was too much going on with the story and the length of the film was unnecessary. I found myself falling asleep and looking at the time. The tone was inconsistent. One minute it's dramatic…
