  • T2: Trainspotting

    Here’s the recent trend of long-awaited non-animated sequels. “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” is the best because of its hilarious portrayal of Will Ferrell in the 1980s and its A-list cameo list. Others however have failed. “Dumb and Dumber To”… Read More ›

  • Beauty and the Beast (2017)

    The real question I’ve been asking myself for two years is: How is Disney going to pull off remaking one of their most magical animated classics “Beauty and the Beast” into a live action film? I trust their judgement, especially… Read More ›

  • Kong: Skull Island

    In retrospect, “Kong: Skull Island” is an entertaining example of the type of genre I’d like to call “The Silly PG-13 Action Movie.” Recent lousy examples include “xXx; Return of Xander Cage” and “The Great Wall,” which both respectively threatened… Read More ›

  • 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 ›
