  • The Hitman’s Bodyguard

    Director Patrick Hughes has tainted “The Expendables” franchise with “The Expendables III,” which was forced to be rated PG-13, because of an illegal DVD quality download weeks before its release. I named it number 10 on my worst films of… Read More ›

  • The House

    A part of me told me not to review “The House,” but another part of me has been begging me to review for the sake of principle. I had to give in, and as much as I like the Crown… Read More ›

  • The Glass Castle

    I attended a special Times Talks program with author Jeannette Walls, stars Brie Larson and Naomi Watts, and director Destin Daniel Cretton, all talking about how “The Glass Castle” film adaptation reflects on the true nature of the memoir. It… Read More ›

  • Annabelle: Creation

    I wasn’t a fan of the original “Annabelle” from 2014, which was a spin-off of “The Conjuring.” I felt it had potential, but somehow, it never really seemed to deliver (review can be found in my Crappy Past page). I… Read More ›

  • Unforgiven

    Clint Eastwood’s 1992 Western classic “Unforgiven” won four Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Gene Hackman), Best Director, and Best Film Editing. Given all these features, you’d find yourself a fresh movie with a lot of ambition. The movie… Read More ›

  • The Lion King

    Last week, “The Emoji Movie” came out, and for an animated movie, it suffered one of the worst ratings on Rotten Tomatoes (8%). I skipped it, because I deserve to see better, more inventive animated movies. “The Lion King” has… Read More ›

  • Atomic Blonde

    “Atomic Blonde” is an R-rated action movie, which cracks skulls and keeps you in your seat. Almost every scene features Charlize Theron playing the female “John Wick,” as she beats the sh*t out of the bad guys. Fresh fight moments… Read More ›
