'Battle of the Sexes' Review

“Battle of the Sexes” may just be the sunniest movie of the year. Coincidentally, the film comes from “Little Miss Sunshine” directors Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton. Here they take on one of the most influential sporting events of all-time - the 1973 Billie Jean King - Bobby Riggs exhibition tennis match which captivated the world and served as the starting point in changing how women were perceived and treated in the sports world - and in society.

Friend Request (2017)

Maybe the corniest genre to horror films is the social media genre. We've had the corny film Unfriended, horror dealing with the dark sides of Skype and Facebook. On a much smaller level, you also had the foreign film The Den (2013), dealing with webcams. It's a unique genre but I don't see how it can grow and will become so dated twenty-years from now. The worst film to the social media genre to this date and basically a rip-off in many ways to Unfriended is Friend Request out this weekend.

"The LEGO Ninjago Movie" Review

I was worried that two LEGO movies released in the same year might be overkill. — "The LEGO Batman Movie", released back in February, is the spinoff to 2014's groundbreaking and innovative "The LEGO Movie". This tale of the miniature Caped Crusader is still the best animated film of 2017. It's smart and sharp, with a surprisingly sophisticated look into the Batman psyche.

TV Review: FOX's "Ghosted"

Craig Robinson and Adam Scott had breakthrough roles on NBC comedies “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation”, respectively. They teamed-up for 2015’s disappointing “Hot Tub Time Machine 2”, and now they’re together again for the surprisingly entertaining new FOX TV comedy “Ghosted”.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)

A lot of Hollywood series nowadays don't deserve to exist. From tiresome clichés, money grabs and unoriginal rides, so many reasons can be found as to why we don't need the series's that we have. After a hit of a first film and now a sequel in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, this seems like this is primed to be the next big series. Is the sequel the step in more of the right direction or a step backward? Do we really need this series?

HBO greenlights Damon Lindelof's 'Watchmen' series

No details have been revealed whether Lindelof's series will be a prequel, re-imagining or a sequel to Moore and Gibbons source material — Back in June, it was reported but not confirmed that The Leftovers and Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof was in talks to adapt the popular 1980’s DC graphic novel for HBO. On Wednesday, the premium service provider gave the official green light for a pilot and script commitment, one day after Lindelof posted a pic of the writer's room kickoff with a half body tease of a bronze Nite Owl statue, captioned "Day One."

Okja

There is an irony about those ‘inspirational’ quotes concerning the importance of originality, in that one is very much like the other. Apart from Mark Twain’s brave assertion, that 'all ideas are second-hand … there is not a rag of originality about them anywhere’, which is also ironic, in that it stands out from the other quotes on account of its ‘originality’. To be fair, people use the term to describe creativity, which is in abundance across every culture worldwide. But if ever a film came close (like the planet Earth is close to the sun, as I am a fan of the second-hand ideas idea) to originality, it would have to be ‘Okja’.

Happy Death Day: Get Up. Live Your Day. Get Killed. Again....

Blumhouse Productions latest slasher feels refreshingly original for a film that's disguised as Scream meets Edge of Tomorrow (or Groundhog Day). — The trailer for Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions Happy Death Day was a pleasant surprise having sat through at least a dozen or so forgettable trailers during my 'IT' screening. For those who are fans of the genre, I recommend you check out the trailer!
