‘The Best of Me’ Review: Starring Michelle Monaghan, James Marsden & Liana Liberato

Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

I’ve either seen one too many Nicholas Sparks movies or The Best of Me is the most predictable and clichéd film adaptation of his to date. I think it’s maybe a little of both. When an old friend passes away, former high school sweethearts Dawson (Luke Bracey) and Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) return to their small […]

‘Haywire’ Review: Gina Carano is Amazing!

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Move over Angelina and Umu, Gina Carano is here and she’s about to kick some serious butt in the action movie industry. Let me just say, I love a great kick-ass girl flick. Some of the best include Kill Bill Vol. 1, Salt, Hanna and even the cheesy Charlie’s Angels flicks and the Underworld movies […]

‘Act of Valor’ Review: Surprisingly Heartfelt and Action Packed!

Posted on March 1st, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

It really saddens me that the majority of film critics slammed this film. There is absolutely nothing wrong with real-life Navy SEALs playing Navy SEALS in a full length feature film. In fact, that’s why I enjoyed the movie! Their real wives and children were also in the film, which made it even more heartfelt […]

‘Movie 43’ Review: Provocative, Offensive, Plain Stupid

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Yes, “Movie 43” is funny, weird and majorly offensive all at the same time, the problem is the funny doesn’t continue in the last hour and twenty minutes; the movie is a painful hour and a half long. “Movie 43” is one of those films that starts off as a 4/5, with the first story […]

‘Safe Haven’ Review: Sparks’s Romance Perfect for Valentine’s Day

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

A small North Carolina town on the water, two beautiful people finding love after struggle, lots of letters and surprising twists make up the Nicholas Sparks story formula; and for his newest film adaption Safe Haven, it positively adds up. Nicholas Sparks has written 17 novels, seven of them turned to films, with Safe Haven […]

’21 & OVER’ Review: Forced Comedy Doesn’t Measure Up to HANGOVER

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

The first thing readers are going to say when they read my headline is “Lauren, you can’t expect every drinking comedy to be as funny as The Hangover!” But I’m comparing 21 & Over to The Hangover because both films have the same writers and one script is tremendously better than the other. Here’s a […]

‘The Family’ Review: A Satirical Comedy-Action-Thriller

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

When you walk in to see The Family, just remember not to take it seriously. In essence, Robert De Niro is making fun of himself and maybe that will piss off fans of the mafia-charged movies or maybe it will give them a big laugh. Also, if you adore Goodfellas, there’s a special surprise in […]
