FANTASTIC FOUR | Monday Movie Review

This image from FANTASTIC FOUR shows Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell as Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm.

A superhero movie that flops out in the theaters can still become one of someone else’s favorite movies for the rest of their life (for me, that movie is Batman Forever; it apparently stunk in the box office, but I loved it for years and still will occasionally revisit it). 20th Century … Continue reading

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION | Monday Movie Review

This image from MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION shows Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, and Jeremy Renner.

When I first heard about another Mission: Impossible film, I’ll admit that I rolled my eyes; nothing seems to stop the Sequel Train that Hollywood keeps fueling and running us ragged with. So when I bought my ticket on a whim, I didn’t really expect anything all that great. That being said, Mission: … Continue reading

JURASSIC WORLD | Monday Movie Review

This image from JURASSIC WORLD shows Chris Pratt as Owen as he calms his velociraptors.

Exciting (if Slightly Extinct) Science Fiction What makes Jurassic World exciting is that its simple science fiction premise allows for plenty of humanity. Just like the 1993 original, the plot of this film stems from one idea: that scientists have discovered a way to bring dinosaurs back from extinction, and greedy business … Continue reading

INSIDIOUS: Chapter 3 | Monday Movie Review

This promotional image from INSIDIOUS: Chapter 3 shows Stefanie Scott sitting in bed as a single beam of light illuminates her eye.

Eerie and Suspenseful, but Misses the Mark If two basic thematic conflicts have ever existed in the horror film genre, they have been the conflict of Man vs. Man and that Man vs. the Supernatural. In the former, we see the stereotypical serial killer that just can’t die no matter how … Continue reading

PITCH PERFECT 2 | Monday Movie Review

When Mad Max: Fury Road begins, you’ll have just enough time for an off-screen monologue layered over the notoriously desolate post-apocalyptic landscape most familiar to fans of the series. The player speaking the monologue will then appear – Tom Hardy as the titular character – and have just enough time to step … Continue reading
