  • Beatriz at Dinner

    “Beatriz at Dinner” is a short movie, running at 83 minutes, but it’s also an emotional movie that shows us the black sheep of a group of people. This black sheep is an environmentalist and animal lover, while the rest… Read More ›

  • Transformers: The Last Knight

    I haven’t watched the Michael Bay “Transformers” movies in years, but I can tell you a few things. The first movie from 2007 was fun, the second from 2009 is both forgettable and boring, the third from 2011 was a… Read More ›

  • All Eyez on Me

    Just now, Jada Pinkett Smith said “All Eyez on Me” was “inaccurate” in how her story with Tupac Shakur (1971-1996) was told in the biopic. He never read a poem, he never said goodbye to her, and she never attended… Read More ›

  • Cars 3

    Not many would call “Cars” a Pixar classic, but I found it to be delightful. The sequel wasn’t as fresh as the original, but it had its moments. And now, we have “Cars 3,” which is the best since the… Read More ›

  • Rough Night

    I’ve only seen parts of “Very Bad Things,” a bomb from 1998, and trust me: it was not pretty. It involved guys accidentally killing a hooker and murdering a security guard (know the difference between killing and murdering) at a… Read More ›

  • The Hero

    Sam Elliott has given many memorable performances, including his in “The Big Lebowski” and “I’ll See You in My Dreams,” and “The Hero” continues his legacy. This is one of his absolute best performances. He plays Lee Hayden, “a sad,… Read More ›

  • Some Like it Hot (1959)

    “White Chicks” was an awful comedy, which, to me, takes place in a parallel world, where every character is so stupid that not even dead giveaways can prove Shawn and Marlon Wayans were really guys, not white girls. “Some Like… Read More ›

  • Megan Leavey

    “Megan Leavey” is an entertaining war drama about a young woman named Megan Leavey, who joins the Marines in order to escape her miserable life, and ends up befriending Rex, the dog in combat. They both end up injured from… Read More ›

  • The Mummy (2017)

    I haven’t seen the Brendan Fraser movies in a long time, but some moments stuck with me; I’ve just watched the 1932 “Mummy,” and Boris Karloff was both creepy and riveting; and I used to ride on the “Revenge of… Read More ›
