Kingsman: The Golden Circle Review

In the same vein as its predecessor, Kingsman: The Gloden Circle is an outlandish spy movie full of plot twists and zany gadgets. Taking place about a year after the events of the first film, Kingsman follows the English Secret Service agent Eggsy (Taron Egerton) as he, once again, must save the world from complete destruction. This time around, Eggsy must team up with an American … Continue reading Kingsman: The Golden Circle Review

The Hitman’s Bodyguard Review

The idea of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson acting in a buddy comedy together sounds like a match made in heaven. The type of roles they typically play are tremendously different, which would theoretically make for a highly interesting film. I say theoretically, because The Hitman’s Bodyguard perfectly displays the sad truth that, just because you have good actors, doesn’t mean you’ll have a good … Continue reading The Hitman’s Bodyguard Review

The Dark Tower Review

Based on the dark fantasy book series by Stephen King, The Dark Tower takes audiences on an all too brief journey into a very creative and unique universe.

It’s the Gunslinger’s duty … Continue reading The Dark Tower Review

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets Review

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is about as visually awe-inspiring as its title would have you believe. Full of creative ideas from director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element and Lucy), Valerian unfortunately struggled to get past its own mediocre characters and bizarre writing. The film takes place in the 28th century, where special agents Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) act … Continue reading Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets Review

Dunkirk Review

In May of 1940, near the start of WWII in the European Theater, Nazi Germany broke through Allied lines in France, trapping all Allied soldiers on the French beaches of Dunkirk. In what became one of the largest military evacuations in history, hundreds of thousands of Allied soldiers were methodically rescued from the beaches using any and all civilian and naval vessels possible. And to pay … Continue reading Dunkirk Review

Rise of the Planet of the Apes Review

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is the underwhelming introduction to the recently rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise. The film stars James Franco as Will, a San Francisco scientist working on a drug that he hopes will cure Alzheimer’s, a disease his father (John Lithgow) suffers from. When Will’s experiments (which are conducted using apes as test subjects) are deemed a failure by … Continue reading Rise of the Planet of the Apes Review
