What I Liked: Neel Sethi’s feature film premiere! This young actor is so great and the fact that he was primarily acting in a CGI environment makes it all the better. The entire cast is great, which each actor bringing a memorable performance to their animated animal. And for the five minutes or less that Scarlett Johansson is in the film as the enchanting snake Kaa, she reminds us all how ethereal and soothing her voice is. She is just as great in these five minutes as she was in the entirety of Spike Jonze’s Her. Also, the “Bare Necessities” …Read More
Better than The Heat, Identity Thief and Tammy, The Boss will bring delight to any true Melissa McCarthy fan. I laughed so hard, I cried once or twice. McCarthy and Kristen Bell work so well together, its as if they’ve known each other for years. Sure, The Boss has some flaws, but its so reminiscent of Troop Beverly Hills that is makes it more fun than not.
Michelle Darnell (Melissa McCarthy) is, well was, a successful businesswoman. After she was caught for insider training, she’s sent to prison and loses her estate. When she gets out of prison, she’s ready to …Read More
**Spoiler-free review as always from your friendly DC film girl!**
Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel remains one of the most divided superhero films in recent years. Audiences either loved it or hated it. I loved it and have watched is several times since. I love the origin story of Superman told not in a chronological order and that we get to see Superman throughout several stages of his life. Also, Henry Cavill is the best Superman ever. The gorgeous English actor perfectly embodies every quality Superman should have and he brings a new life to the Superman franchise.
When it was announced …Read More
A book series and film franchise that should have both stopped after Insurgent. Allegiant feels overly drawn out, boring and tired. What in the heck are they going to do in Ascendant next year?
What I Liked: Shailene Woodley’s haircut; Naomi Watt’s walking around giving orders; Theo James’ arms
What I Didn’t Like: The boring and uncaring plot; the CGI effects; Jeff Daniels looking like he couldn’t care less; Is it just me or is Ansel Elgort the weirdest runner ever? It was distracting. Really its not any of the actors here, its just that the story is not good, which is …Read More
**This is a spoiler-free review! And if it were me, I would do my best on avoiding plot-heavy reviews and just go see the movie!**
First time feature film director Dan Trachtenberg makes his mark in filmmaking with pairing up with J.J. Abrams and a small yet tremendous cast that makes up 10 Cloverfield Lane. Not to be totally confused with 2008’s Cloverfield, one of the first found-footage films of its kind about a major alien attack in New York City and starring the now famous T.J. Miller (2016’s Deadpool). 10 Cloverfield Lane is a perfect example of a franchise reboot …Read More
