Boldly Going Beyond the Original Scope


I was skeptical for a long time about this Star Trek entry simply because this one felt more rushed than the previous entries. Yet they managed to pull things together and craft an original story and while the focus this time may be more on action than the characters at times, this is classic Trek and certainly the most fun I've had with this rebooted series.

The film opens with Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) trying to negotiate a peace between two races - and failing, getting attacked by a swarm...

Leighann Paige - wrote on 07/22/16

Of the three reboot Star Trek films, Beyond is my favorite because it brings the old Trek back. The trifecta of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy finally made it to the big screen again. Mixing that with the humor that the first two films (especially the second one) needed was ingenious. It helped that the old, familiar beeps and chimes of the Enterprise were added to enhance that nostalgic note. But those happy moments couldn't make the film perfect. The action was great, but many of the action scenes fe...

Cranston is a Class-Act


'The Infiltrator' is a crime biopic based on the exploits of real life federal agent Robert Mazur, detailing how his deep undercover investigation lead to the arrest of more than 100 individuals involved with the trafficking of drugs for the infamous Pablo Escobar. The film does not shy away from the harsh realities of being an undercover operative. Suspense is constantly generated from the subtle slips that could potentially blow the mission. Danger is felt through the ruthless actions of t...

Not Giving This One a Call


'Ghostbusters' is the latest in a long line of unnecessary remakes that only exist for commercialization through brand recognition. Let's not kid ourselves over the real intentions of this property. Nothing about this film warrants much investment. It's essentially a beat-for-beat plot retread of the original 'Ghostbusters', but with entirely different characters and jokes. The humor is like day and night when comparing the two films. I think I laughed out loud maybe twice? Rest of the ti...

The Secret Life of Pets is the bastard child of Toy Story but with animals as replacement. There's nothing new, creative or original about this movie. It's not bad, but it's not good. If you want to watch the movie just for the animation or the cute pets, then that's fine.

But hey, at least there's no Minions in this so that's good.

I want to give some extra points for daring to take weird creative risks... This movie definitely does that. Unfortunately the result is by turns maudlin, twee, and gross. I can imagine everyone involved reading the script and thinking "wow, that's not something I see every day". On the other hand, maybe there's a reason for that? Other than the premise, there's nothing particularly striking or exciting about this movie -- it's not visually interesting, the dialogue is banal, the...

Unbelievably Entertaining!


'Swiss Army Man' is one of the most awesomely unique and original films I've ever seen. The premise alone is entirely fresh and wildly inventive. There is absolutely nothing else like it. How often do you hear anyone say that about a film? A hyper-creative plot unfolds with great characterization, arresting cinematography, infectious music, and an unpredictable sense of wonderment. This "buddy" adventure breaks the mold on expectations with it's shifting tones and outright bizarre visuals,...

'The BFG' Has a BIG Heart


'The BFG' is the kind of family fantasy we need nowadays. It's brimming with wit, charm, gleeful humor, emotional depth, and great characters. Spielberg has found his signature "magic" again; that indescribable marriage of emotion to visuals one can only ascribe to his previous works. His style feels genuine again. I was brought back to a childlike state while watching this magnificent fairy tale. Spielberg manages to maintain a constant state of pure wonderment throughout. I was sucked i...

Rick and Morty's "Look Who's Purging Now" is the best version of The Purge we've had.

The Purge series has one of the greatest premises in a long time, but too bad it was in the hands of dipshit film makers who have no idea how to execute it properly. Three movies in and I'm still not into these movies.

Frank Grillo and Elizabeth Mitchell are both strong leads and the only thing I can think of that I liked in this movie. The acting from everyone else was so awful and way too ove...
