Peter Rabbit

on 2-18-2018

This is a great little story that offers a lot of laughs and a very cleverly told story. It is part animated and also has actors. It is shot kind of in a Roger Rabbit style. Those crazy wabbits seem to inspire this technology. It is very well done and takes us along on this merry little rabbit tale with a British accent. It is highly entertaining for kids of all ages EXPEKT –...

Fifty Shades Freed

on 2-11-2018

This looks and feels like a TV Soap Opera. Something about it that seems kind of like, after the sex, it found itself looking for a plot. So let’s drive a plot in under it as a distraction from all the skin and sex. No-one will notice if it works or not. It kinda works but you know, sex sells even if it is a soap opera quality film. When there is more sex,...

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle

on 12-25-2017

Alright, I know, I know!! I sneaked in to see a scene of this silly movie and came back the next day to see the whole thing. I was so glad I did. This is a very clever movie with a lot of laugh lines. It also has some good acting. I was drawn into it. There are scenes of a gal inhabiting a mans body that are particularly funny. Jack Black plays the...

Downsizing

on 12-23-2017

This is a very smart and funny movie with some current human concerns thrown in for impact. I liked this a lot. It was very thorough in bringing us up to speed on the entire Downsizing Program. Then we were off to life in Downsizeville and all of its ups and downs. The second half of the movie takes some very interesting twists and turns to wrap up in a very human look over...

Blade Runner 2049

on 10-06-2017

If you enjoy excessively long movies (2.43), that are dark, brooding, with plot points unsatisfactorily peeled back to reveal a big ‘so what’ and takes itself entirely too seriously, then this just might be for you. Great acting, wonderful set design and a fantasy sex scene we all have done at one time or another. His dream gal ( a true beauty ) is inhabiting his actual sex partner. Sound familiar? Just checking. All...

King Arthur: legend Of The Sword

on 5-16-2017

      This is an excellent blend of dark and light story telling, with some crafty twists of Shamanic magic to move the story along. The acting is excellent. The sets seem to depict a dark and damp era long ago. Life was challenging and vacant the comforts we take for granted in todays world.. It was entertaining and hit that rare Hollywood balance of acting and computer generated graphics spot on. It...

The Circle

on 4-30-2017

Sad to say folks that Forrest Gump finally belly flopped. The acting is terrible in this movie. The story itself is very compelling. A company is about to develop an extremely invasive media camera and personal intelligence gathering system and deploy it far and wide. It will creep out your sensitivities if you can get through the extremely low quality of acting. I blame the director for having a talented crew and not getting...

The Great Wall

on 2-27-2017

This is a classic heroes journey. Matt Damon goes out for an adventure and comes home to himself. His journey was the story. It involved a big war, death, heroism, romance and some quite beautiful Chinese landscapes. The CG was spectacular, with scenes that were BIG, complex and innovative. It was excellently done from beginning to end. The myth in this story was quite stunning to see come to life. High marks guys, you...

John Wick

on 2-13-2017

This is installment number two in this brutal and stylized shootem up franchise. Keanu Reeve is the invincible hit man, John Wick with more lives that a lucky cat. Where he shows up, people die. This one has the twist of a Mafia like central command that has him on a string and can call him out of retirement to do it’s bidding. Well, there are wrinkles that just keep slapping him with bigger...

50 Shades Darker

on 2-13-2017

This is a movie with sex in it and a little bit of relationship between the sexual episodes. The only difference from pornography and this movie is, camera angle. Having gotten that off my chest, it does have a plot….this time. I mean a plot beyond sex in our faces. There are people who are introduced into the story that were burned in various ways by the lead guy. They also set up the...

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

on 11-18-2016

She’s Back!! J.K. Rowling has created another masterwork of storytelling with this fun and magical fantasy movie. It is clever and believable in an unbelievable sore of way. The acting is excellent with Eddie Redmayne having the lead. It is a takeoff of the Hogwarts School For Wizards and has even better magical innovations than the original Harry Potter. it is a romp with things getting destroyed, then reconstituted right before our eyes. If...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

on 12-20-2015

I left this movie very disappointed. Sure, it has a bigger star weapon, the old guys were back, some of the new guys were memorable but it was lacking energy. I did not believe the story. It is just rehashed stuff that once was thrilling but now is hoo hum. The black white couple dance was a bit too cliche and seemed pandering. It all and all was not my cup of greatness that...
