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. The film stars Idris Elba as the Gunslinger, the last on an elite group of marksmen, who is constantly at war with an evil sorcerer known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey). 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

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

War for the Planet of the Apes Review

War for the Planet of the Apes is the highly anticipated conclusion to the Planet of the Apes trilogy. The film takes place a few years after the events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, where Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his family have been forced into a devastating war with a ruthless military Colonel. As the apes continue to suffer heavy losses, Caesar … Continue reading War for the Planet of the Apes Review

Transformers: The Last Knight Review

What else is there left to say about the Transformers series? The films are long, poorly written, and entirely too predictable. Yet, they continue to be made, profiting more and more money with each sequel. Despite this unfortunate truth, I will attempt to honestly review the film all the same. The film takes place shortly after the events of the previous installment, where humans are at … Continue reading Transformers: The Last Knight Review

47 Meters Down Review

47 Meters Down blurs the line between what should be allowed in the theater, and what should be restricted to the Syfy channel. With atrocious acting, poor CGI effects, and a slew of other issues, 47 Meters Down manages to be both dim-witted and ludicrous. The film follows two sisters named Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) on a vacation trip to the coast of Mexico. … Continue reading 47 Meters Down Review

Alien: Covenant Review

Of all the countless films I’ve seen over the years, none have captivated me more than Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece, Alien. From the lonely atmospheric environment, to the fantastic H. R. Giger design work, all the pieces fell perfectly into place to create a one of a kind science fiction beauty. The 1986 sequel Aliens, directed by James Cameron and once again starring Sigourney Weaver, also enthralled me, in … Continue reading Alien: Covenant Review
