‘Pain & Gain’ Review: Not a Favorite Michael Bay Flick

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

I want to be clear from the get-go here. I’m a Michael Bay fan and I’m proud to say it. Armageddon, Transformers, The Rock and Pearl Harbor are all good, entertaining films, and the action-packed director doesn’t deserve a lot of the hate he gets from critics. In fact, I think Armageddon is in the […]

‘Iron Man 3’ Review: This Summer’s First Spectacular Film

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Note: I saw this film in 3D, but would not recommend seeing it in 3D since it wasn’t shot that way and doesn’t add to the film. See it in 2D and save a few bucks! Stay after the credits for a nice little surprise. This is a spoiler-free review. Iron Man 3 is the […]

‘The Great Gatsby’ Review: Luhrmann Breathes New Life Into Classic Tale

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

If you are a fan of director Baz Luhrmann’s previous films Romeo & Juliet and Moulin Rouge, I don’t see how you will be disappointed or underwhelmed by his take of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel, “The Great Gatsby.” Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby is spectacular, whimsical and daring. What’s more, Hollywood’s most versatile actor Leonardo DiCaprio […]

‘The Hangover Part III’ Review: The Wolfpack Returns For Its Final Act

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Note: Stay after the initial end credits for one of the best scenes in the franchise. The Hangover Part III is a step up from the sequel, has a few good laughs, but nothing can touch the first film of the Wolfpack franchise. Although I enjoyed much of Part III, the sequels should have never […]

‘Fast & Furious 6’ Review: Starring Paul Walker, Vin Diesel & Michelle Rodriguez

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

The Fast & Furious franchise is certainly a peculiar one. An extremely fun time at the theatres, no doubt about that, but how is it that average-ranking films about racecars, muscle guys and half-naked women make its way to blockbuster status? Usually a series of films doesn’t last this long, especially when the third installment […]

‘Now You See Me’ Review: Star-Studded Cast Makes For a Fun Flick

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Now You See Me is a mind-blowing and entertaining story that will keep you guessing till the end. Although at times, it’s a little too smart for its own good, the star-studded cast is fantastic, especially Jesse Eisenberg and Dave Franco. Director Louis Leterrier’s (Clash of the Titans) film is a compilation of several genres. […]

‘After Earth’ Review: Shyamalan’s Newest Film Is A Let Down

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Who would’ve thought that director and screenwriter M. Night Shyamalan would eventually become a laughing stock? The director who made films like The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable then made films like The Happening, The Last Airbender and now After Earth. After Earth isn’t completely terrible, but it’s more terrible than it is good or enjoyable. […]
