‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Review: Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck & Gal Gadot

Posted in Film, Reviews by - Mar 23, 2016

**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 …

‘The Divergent Series: Allegiant’ Review: Starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James & Naomi Watts

Posted in Film, Reviews by - Mar 18, 2016

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 …

’10 Cloverfield Lane’ Review: Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman & John Gallagher Jr.

Posted in Film, Reviews by - Mar 10, 2016

**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 …

‘Triple 9’ Review: Starring Casey Affleck, Anthony Mackie & Kate Winslet

Posted in Film, Reviews by - Feb 25, 2016

It’s important to go into this film not knowing a whole lot about the plot and who are the bad guys and who are the good guys. It will be a better entertainment experience that way. To keep it simple here, a gang of criminals and a group of corrupt cops are planning the murder of a cop in order to pull off the biggest heist Atlanta has seen. There’s also the element of Russian gangsters involved (Kate Winslet and Gal Gadot who play sisters) and that is a different story entirely.

The talent in this film is incredible. We have …

‘Risen’ Review: Starring Joseph Fiennes, Tom Felton & Cliff Curtis

A beautiful story that shows us that its OK to question and its OK if we don’t totally understand, as long as we still have faith. Joseph Fiennes is exceptional as the non-believer Roman solider Clavius while Cliff Curtis makes a soft and loving Jesus/Yeshua.

What I Liked: The acting, especially that of Joseph Fiennes and Cliff Curtis; the gorgeous cinematography.

What I Didn’t Like: The slow paced beginning and the continuity errors of Fiennes’s cut lip.

How Many Times I Checked The Time: 1
