Movie Reviews

Honesty and expectation run hand in hand with my movie reviews. There are right and wrong ways to gauge films, and my way is to find out what the movie is trying to provide me with. Going into an action film needs to be met with guilty pleasure enjoyment. Dramas require a deeper train of thought. Comedies are medicine for the soul, especially when they are done right. My main idea is digging deeper. I want to know what this director is trying to tell me or if he/she simply wants me to relax and "get away". Movies are escape into a world only meant for imagination and mad creativity. We are all critics when it comes to film and our reactions/thoughts shape the future landscape of Hollywood and their productions. Honesty is the biggest requirement in movie critiques, but knowing what to expect is the secret ingredient. -Dan Buffa

Southpaw offers some jabs but does it offer the knockout power needed to flourish in the world of summer blockbusters.

It only made sense for Apatow to team up with Amy Schumer, whose star has been on the rise over the past couple years in large part due to her popular Comedy Central sketch show, Inside Amy Schumer.

The end result is exactly what one would expect, an enjoyable and competently made film that fits into the Avengers puzzle but is nothing special.

With Steve Carrell's Gru not yet in the picture, the leading role that speaks a decipherable language is Sandra Bullock's Scarlett Overkill, a ferocious and widely admired criminal who is often likened to a big bad wolf and certainly fits the bill.

The film is stuffed with references and call backs to Cameron's original two films, while mostly disregarding the events of the much-less liked Rise of the Machines and Salvation.

“The Gallows” is yet another take on the found footage horror genre that hopefully will end soon.

We add another summer sequel to was has been a blockbuster summer. This time we bring in the magic, Magic Mike that is. Not just your normal Magic Mike, but Magic Mike XXL.

This being said, MEDG is an enjoyable and refreshingly honest film.

 

If you go in to Ted 2 wanting a fluffy, non-vulgar film, then obviously you have never seen a Seth MacFarlane production. The question becomes, does this film compare to the original?

Inside Out's wonder can largely be attributed to its obvious yet incredibly original and high-concept premise: every person has a group of emotions in their head that control their decisions and actions at a command center in their brain.

This film offers a real feel approach to two different perspectives of Inglewood, one view from the kings of the streets (the gangs and thieves), and one from the others who just don’t fit in (Malcolm’s crowd).

Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Jurassic World returns to Isla Nublar (Lost World and JPIII were set on Isla Sorna) where the dinosaurs have been contained and John Hammond’s vision of a family adventure theme park have come to fruition
