‘Me Before You’ Review: Starring Emilia Clarke, Sam Claflin & Matthew Lewis

Posted in Film, Reviews by - Jun 02, 2016

Emilia Clarke is a star on the rise. With Game of Thrones being one of the most popular television shows on right now, landing roles in massive franchises like Terminator, and now in her own starring role in Me Before You, she can’t be missed. One of the best performances I’ve seen by any actress so far this year, Clarke is absolutely stunning and infectious to watch on screen here. I adore a great romantic comedy and romantic drama, and Me Before You provides a little bit of both.

Set in England, the story focuses on a young woman Louisa (Emilia …

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Review: Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. & Sebastain Stan

I adore you Joss Whedon, but this is what Avengers: Age of Ultron should have been. I also really like you Zack Synder and really enjoyed Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but this is how you pit two superheroes against each other with a fully fleshed out story. The Russo Brothers know how to make a fantastic superhero film and already proved that with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The Winter Soldier is fantastic but Civil War is easily one of the best films of the year. (I still really really love Deadpool, too). Chris Evans was born to …

‘The Jungle Book’ Review: Starring Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray & Neel Sethi

Posted in Film, Reviews by - Apr 15, 2016

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” …

‘The Boss’ Review: Starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Bell & Peter Dinklage

Posted in Film, Reviews by - Apr 07, 2016

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 …
