  • The Lego Batman Movie

    In my Top 10 Worst Films of 2016 list, I said: “I fear the future of D.C. Comics movies.” Both “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad” only cared about updates and miscasting, whereas “The Lego Batman Movie”… Read More ›

  • John Wick: Chapter 2

    Every once in a while, a non-superhero sequel surprises you when you least expect it, and “John Wick: Chapter 2” is an entertaining example. It’s the sequel to the surprise 2014 action hit, which redeemed Keanu Reeves as the professional… Read More ›

  • Fist Fight

    All comedy and no laughs makes Chris a dull critic. Charlie Day is one of the flexible actors I’ve ever met, and my favorite works of his consist of “Horrible Bosses” and his voice talent in “The Lego Movie.” But… Read More ›

  • The Comedian

    I have zero interest in seeing “Rings” or “The Space Between Us” this opening weekend, so I chose to take my mother to a special screening of “The Comedian,” an Indie comedy with an all-star cast. I asked her if… Read More ›

  • Gold

    Here is “Gold,” another money-obsessed drama, which may have the potential to rank with Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” but atlas, becomes a dull, generic bio. It starts off well with a would-be businessman named Kenny Wells (Matthew… Read More ›

  • The Founder

    Unless Oscars contenders get expanded, it is very uncommon for great movies to pop up in January, and “The Founder” indicates that 2017 could be a great year for movies. I hate McDonald’s, but “I’m Loving” this movie for its… Read More ›

  • xXx: Return of Xander Cage

    “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” is the second Vin Diesel three-quel I have seen since “Riddick” from 2013. Both these movies have been made despite “The Chronicle of Riddick” and “xXx: State of the Union” flopping. I guess cult following… Read More ›

  • Split

    I rarely sit through horror movies nowadays (which is why I chose to skip “The Bye Bye Man” and “Underworld: Awakening”), but M. Night Shyamalan’s next thriller “Split” is one I’m curious to understand. It’s premise: a man with multiple… Read More ›

  • The Fate of the Furious

    The main question of “The Fate of the Furious” most fans will be asking is: “Did we need another sequel?” Because the last movie, “Furious 7,” had one of the most respectful tributes to the late Paul Walker, who died… Read More ›

  • Hacksaw Ridge

    As far I know, most people would probably avoid “Hacksaw Ridge,” Mel Gibson’s first directing film in years, because of how the actor has gone downhill. His last two acting jobs, “Machete Kills” and “The Expendables III,” were both garbage…. Read More ›
