Another fast paced zombie movie.


To be honest, I feel sorry for those zombies. Their life really is meaningless. A numb existence without any excitement or pleasure. No pleasant dinners at a favorite restaurant. No well-deserved vacation on a sunny beach. No sports or interesting hobbies. Their sole purpose is hunting uninfected fellow men. And when there's nobody left to hunt, the only thing they can do is standing idly somewhere, probably wondering what to do next. Dead boring in other words. The undead in "Daylight's E...

Borrows from Better Films


'War Dogs' is based on the true story of two college age friends who become illegal gun smugglers by way of a get rich quick scheme to exploit government controlled gun trades. They abuse a system which allows buyers (US military) to take bids from literally anyone, thus opening the floodgates to many under-the-table illegal deals. Their plan does make them very wealthy in a very short amount of time, growing their tiny fake business into a giant fake one almost overnight. Of course, that co...

Much Less Epic than It's Inspiration


'Ben Hur' is the remake of the classic epic that no one asked for. Honestly, Charlton Heston's version of this story looks and feels way more epic by comparison. What we have here is a truncated retelling of that film's narrative with minor touches that serve no purpose to plot or character development. It cuts through the core brotherly relationship, and all other relationships, with a scalpel, leaving us without much to invest in. The actors are all trying hard to be compelling, but the c...

A 'Party' for Everyone


'Sausage Party' sees Rogan and company tackle animation. Their particular brand of sophomoric humor is all over this one, as expected. What's not as expected is the satirical ways in which they use this simple premise to full effect. On the surface we have food puns, crass jokes, and all the sexual references one can make with edible objects. But beneath the self-aware juvenile exterior is a story with actual meaning. Our sausage hero comes to find that the "gods" (grocery shoppe...

A Boy and His Dragon


'Pete's Dragon' is the best live-action Disney remake by a large margin. What this iteration does best is that it takes the concept of a boy having a green colored pet dragon and spins an entirely different story all-together. The similarities between this update and the original begin and end with a boy and a dragon. And, in all honesty, I believe this to be the superior film. It seems just a tiny bit unfair to make that claim, seeing as how they are different in almost every way, but I'm ...

Streep's Next Award-Win


'Florence Foster Jenkins' brings us another winning performance from the Streep. She's magnetic as the highly likable, ambitious, yet talentless, aged performer. She surrounds herself with admirers of her character and generosity. It's because of this that they look past her major inability to properly sing. Her off key, off-pitch, attempts at operatic vocals are abysmal, to say the least. Her winning attitude and hints at past failure make her worth rooting for. There is much comedy to b...

Allen-isms Abound in Enjoyable Nostalgic Fluff


'Cafe Society' is Woody Allen's latest (almost yearly) output. His usual sensibilities we've grown accustom to are all present: romantic comedy, nostalgic framework, Manhattan ogling, and Jewish jokes abound. His form of lenient repetition of themes never tires on me. It's surprising that his latest effort relies so heavily on his older cornerstones, given that his last few were more dramatic character studies, but yet I enjoyed those familiar aspects more so here than in other recent works....

Not 'Fabulous'


'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' is the film adaptation of the British sitcom of the same name. I'm not all too familiar with the show, having only seen some clips on Youtube, but it does look like a decent enough comedy. I at least like the premise regarding the two older females constantly fighting age to remain in the spotlight. That theme is really all that propels the plot in this film. It's a very loose and sporadic plot that feels very sketch-like. None of these sketches worked for ...

Stared with Zero Lives


'Nine Lives' is the most puzzling bad movie I've seen this year. It exists in the realm of kid-specific animal magic type of films - most being cheap made-for-tv silly fare. The fact that we have a film as such on the big screen, with a stacked cast of respected actors, and a bigger production helmed by a known director, is baffling. You'd think this was just meant to be silly entertainment for children, but you'd be wrong. There's barely enough wacky shenanigans to make that claim, and the...

Watch 'Batman: Assault on Arkham' Instead


'Suicide Squad' continues the lackluster performance of this new DC universe of films. I was vastly disappointed in 'Batman v. Superman' earlier this year, but was holding out hope for 'Suicide Squad'. Sadly, it too let me down. First off, I'm very familiar with these villains. Some within the group are among my favorite Batman adversaries. Second, I LOVE the concept. It's like a weird spin on 'The Dirty Dozen'. These two areas held strong for most of the film. The vastly talented ensem...
