Book of Life (Movie Review)

The Book of Life is a 20th Century Fox animated movie about a young man competing against his best friend for the love of a woman. What makes this movie very different is that a large portion of this movie would take place in the underworld with the main character dead. That sounds pretty […]

Million Dollar Arm (Movie Review)

Million Dollar Arm is a Disney production based on a true story that i was 100% unaware of. It’s probably because I’m not super into baseball, but I was nonetheless surprised I was not more familiar with this story. Without giving anything away I can say that this movie is about an agent who […]

The Maze Runner (Movie Review)

Like I said in my review for The Giver, there is a lot of competition right now in the teenage post-apocalyptic genre. Maze Runner is going up against a huge success (Hunger Games), a moderate success (Divergent), and a relative dud (The Giver). The Hunger Games is the clear champ in that category right […]

Edge of Tomorrow (Movie Review)

Groundhog Day meets Independence Day meets Mech-Warrior. Now I’ve got you hooked, right? Seriously though, this movie was good despite being Groundhog Day + aliens – Bill Murray.

The cinematography was amazing. Several times throughout the movie I asked […]

Fast & Furious 6 (Movie Review)

RT Audience Score: 88
CinemaScore: A

I didn’t jump on board the Fast and Furious franchise until the 5th installment. I was finally convinced by Sport Guy and Adam Corolla’s endorsement. Up to that point I had written off the Fast and Furious franchise as over the top and ridiculous. ¬†And granted, these movies are over […]

Star Trek 2 (Movie Review)

RT Audience Score: 89I know that this movie is officially called Star Trek Into Darkness, but let’s be honest its Star Trek 2.  I didn’t like the previews for this movie.  They seemed dark, messy and melodramatic.  So although I quite enjoyed the Star Trek reboot I didn’t have too high of hopes for […]
