'Pokemon: Detective Pikachu' Review
I’ve never ventured into the world of Pokemon. I allowed the “Pokemon Go!” craze to pass by, as people all over the world, with their eyes glued to their phones, wandered into traffic trying to “catch” animated creatures.
'The Hustle' Review
Last year, Anne Hathaway stole the show in the ensemble crime comedy, “Ocean’s 8”. Now she and Rebel Wilson play a duo of dueling con artists in “The Hustle”, which plays as a cheap knock-off.
'Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile' Review
Zac Efron has built his movie career on musicals and comedies. But after witnessing his performance as infamous serial killer Ted Bundy, serious dramas may be where he belongs.
'Long Shot' Review
As one character points out in the trailer (though the line didn’t make it into the movie), “Long Shot” is essentially a role reversal of “Pretty Woman”. Seth Rogen is Julia Roberts, and Charlize Theron is Richard Gere.
'Avengers: Endgame' Review
It all comes down to this. After more than a decade, and 21 prior films, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (partially) closes its doors with “Avengers: Endgame”.
“Breakthrough” is based on an incredible true story. In January 2015, 14-year-old middle school student John Smith was playing with some friends on a frozen lake in his hometown of Saint Charles, Missouri, when he fell through the ice. Firefighters rescued him after he was underwater for more than 15 minutes. John was first taken to a local hospital, then transferred to another emergency medical center, where he was given a very low chance of survival.
I’ve been to “Hellboy” and back — to let you know that this reboot is one of the worst films of 2019. — Guillermo del Toro’s 2004 and 2008 “Hellboy” movies were beloved by critics and fans. But two minutes into director Neil Marshall’s take the Dark Horse comic, you’ll realize it’s your money that you just burned.
I’ll begin my “Shazam!” review the same way I began my “Aquaman” review just three months ago: With the exception of “Wonder Woman”, DC continues to be unable to do the superhero genre “justice”. This time, however, they’ve taken things up a notch. Not only is “Shazam!” poorly made on a number of levels—it’s also highly deceptive.
