First Man

Star child

“We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard”.

‘First Man’ is a lift off folks. A beautiful, yet melancholic look on a man’s journey to the moon. Focusing on grief and loss that can poison anyone's thoughts. At the end, you get the sad realization it was a suicide mission, not a heroic one. Making you think twice of wanting to be an astronaut.

Also, the stupid controversy surrounding the American flag is one of …

Halloween (2018) - Review

“Happy Halloween, Michael”.

Forget Jigsaw and Paranormal Activity, because The Shape is back and he’s taking back Halloween.

At first I wasn’t sure what to expect when hearing rumors of a remake or reboot of this worn out franchise, which should’ve stopped in 1978. Heck, even when this was announced, I rolled my eyes. However, my interest peaked when Jamie Lee Curtis would be reprising the role as Laurie Strode and Nick Castle as Michael Myers. The new creators made it clear this is a …

I'm sorry I know lots of people really liked this movie and I wish I could have been one of them but I'm sorry it was just way too slowly moving and things for me to enjoy i mean really this was supposed to be the .best film of the year. It was absolutely not or anything close to it so boring so disrespectful so average

The Cloverfield Paradox

Mike A - wrote on 10/13/18

The first Cloverfield, which came out back in 2008, was a crazy good found-footage thrill ride that introduced a scary new movie monster to the world. Its sequel, 10 Cloverfield Lane, was a tense piece of Hitchcockian greatness with a less-than-stellar last-minute Cloverfield tie-in. The Cloverfield Paradox, the new chapter in this anthology franchise, is just boring and confusing, featuring a franchise tie-in that doesn't make a whole lot of sense. The film's attractive cast and popping …

A Star is Born (2018)

Humor helps to soften the blow in 'A Star is Born'

Humor helps to soften the blow in Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, "A Star is Born." When Jackson Maine (Cooper) puts the moves on Ally (Lady Gaga) he does everything from peeling off her false eyebrow to insisting that she admire the shape of her nose as greatly as he does. The laughter ensues. There is also great fun to be had in the company of Ally’s friends and coworkers, some of whom share the stage with her at the bar where she sings.

Anyone who has ever worked a dead-end job …

The Cloverfield Paradox

Without the Cloverfield link, it would be better

“If you go… you and I will survive.
I’m afraid if you don’t …
No one will.”

“Cloverfield” was a unique film. Lots of fans were looking forward to a sequel to this amusing found footage monster film. The sequel “10 Cloverfield lane” came 8 years later. It didn’t feel like this film had anything to do with the initial film. Till the end of the movie. It’s clear this one was situated after the events from “Cloverfield“. And then suddenly this Netflix release pops up from nowhere. “The …

American Renegades

Pure popcorn fodder

“Can you imagine what that gold could do to help my people?
Will you help me get it?”

There are films you can compare with a richly filled five-course dinner. First they spoil you with a tasty opener. After which a well-filled middle piece is offered. And then as an enjoyment afterwards, you’re offered a delicious dessert. Satisfied you’ll leave the establishment and you’ll remember this treat with great pleasure. Other films are like a cozy family picnic. It’s relaxed and pleasant. No …

The Cloverfield Paradox

Chris Kavan - wrote on 02/20/18

If you go into this pretending it has absolutely nothing to do with any other Cloverfield movies, this is actually a decent sci-fi with a great cast, some freaky scenes and a quasi-intelligent plot. But trying to muscle it into the Cloverfield universe is just sloppy - it would work much better as a stand alone alternate reality film with no ties to an established series. The Cloverfield hate is justified, but overall it's not as bad as I was expecting.

The Cloverfield Paradox

Worst Black Mirror episode ev- oh wait.

Didn't expect this to be released today on Netflix and after seeing it, I can see why. You know it's not a good sign when things get rushed and the release date gets canceled just to be dumped on Netflix. Doesn't feel like an actual movie with nothing cinematic about it.

Wasn't hyped for this in the first place, but the end result is disappointing.b
