Film Review “Point Break (2015)”

Dumb is the only word I would use to describe 2015’s “Point Break”.

On one hand, “Youth” is an audio, visual, and acting triumph, but on the other hand, “Youth” is a curious dud.

The highlight of “Joy” is watching Lawrence at work

Over-the-top bloody…so be prepared for an adult evening out. And an entertaining one.

As the most anticipated film release that I can remember in some time, “The Force Awakens” has some big shoes to fill. And fill them it does.

Film Review “In the Heart of the Sea”

“In the Heart of the Sea” finds entertainment when it relies on the strength of its actors and captures the feeling of isolation amongst the crisp, calm sea.

Film Review “Victor Frankenstein”

“Victor Frankenstein”…is out before the holidays to bore audiences instead of terrifying them.

“Gasper Noe’s LOVE” Available on Blu-ray and DVD on January 5, 2016

A beautifully crafted romantic drama from Todd Haynes (of 2002’s lauded Far From Heaven). Haynes once again showcases the 1950s as the backdrop for simmering social tensions and stellar work from his lead actresses.

Film Review “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2”

“Hunger Games” is another instance where the story would have been much better off as one impactful final movie than two alright flicks.

Film Review “Spotlight”

Put it all together and “Spotlight” is one of the year’s best films!

Film Review “The Night Before”

“The Night Before” spikes the eggnog and laces the mistletoe with hallucinogens, but it accomplishes that rare Christmas miracle, of making my Grinch heart grow three sizes

“My All American” has the heart and soul we’ve seen in other sports movie, but it doesn’t deliver it in an entertaining or touching fashion

Film Review “Spectre”

Director Mendes, who helmed the amazing “Skyfall,” keeps the action coming as Bond travels all over the world in his quest for satisfaction

Film Review “The Peanuts Movie”

Five decades of memories are treated with the respect they deserve in the new film “The Peanuts Movie.”

Film Review “Burnt”

Well known fiery chef Gordon Ramsay served as an executive producer on the film so I have no doubt Cooper based his performance on him, one that is strong but not over the top.

“99 Homes” is the best performance I’ve ever seen from Garfield and it’s equally matched by Shannon

For being an alleged action movie, “Hitman: Agent 47” is about as entertaining as watching someone who’s watching someone play a videogame

“Once Upon a Time” is a show that has been better with each season
