Star Trek Beyond but Not Quite There

I saw the new Star Trek movie on its opening night, and I went to the theater with a completely open mind. In fact, I hadn’t even seen the trailer. All I knew was that it would be the last time I’d see the late Anton Yelchin (Chekov) in a movie and that the film had generated some mild controversy in its choice to make the character of Sulu gay.

The Conjuring 2 Review: Solid Story with Nice Scares

Let me start by saying that, although I like to write in the horror genre, I haven’t really been “into” scary films since I was a kid. Despite this, I decided to go see The Conjuring 2 last weekend (by myself), and I’m glad I did. Read more →

Keanu Movie Review-The Cat is Cute

First off, I am a huge Key and Peele fan. I love their sketch comedy so much that I routinely re-watch my favorites just so I can laugh until it hurts again and again. But their movie, Keanu? Well, the cat was really cute. Read more →

The Jungle Book Movie Review

The Jungle Book holds a special place in my memories. When I was a child, my favorite album (before I grew into more mature listening tastes, like “Fun Rock”) was The Jungle Book. The vinyl album came with a full-sized picture book with illustrations based on Disney’s 1967 animated movie. As such, Disney’s latest incarnation of this classic had a high bar to attain before I would love it. Read more →
