In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014), the apes haven’t dominated the planet yet, because this here is a continuing franchise.  Yay.  Probably the most impressive thing about this movie are… Continue reading

Life versus The Power Rangers

There was no way I was seeing a Power Rangers movie, so I watched Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds fight an alien.  Life has a lot of good things going for it, and it does… Continue reading

Passengers (2016) is good when it’s tedious

I watched Passengers to find out if the rumors were true: is this really a crappy space movie with great stars? Yes, it does have good performances, so the acting really isn’t a problem,… Continue reading

Action Island: Featuring Kong vs Sam Jackson

Kong: Skull Island (2017) is a different kind of Kong Kong movie, with the action turned up to 11, and everything else turned off.  I think Jurassic Park is a good example of… Continue reading

King Kong 1976 – A precursor to 2017?

The 70s remake of King Kong hasn’t dated well.  The thing I like about the original Universal monster movies is that they are pretty much all rewatchable to this day.  However, this one… Continue reading

March movies 2017 #boxoffice #movies

Could March 2017 be a record breaker at the box office?  I think it has a good chance of beating the March record, at least.  There are a number of blockbusters coming out… Continue reading

Where Eagles Dare (to explain things)

Where Eagles Dare (1968) is a decent movie, if you’re patient.  It is very well-made and I love the environments, the story, and all the actors do a great job.  However, this is… Continue reading

Eye in the Sky (2015) – Have you seen this one?

Eye in the Sky (2015) is an Amazon Prime/Netflix special and it has some melodramatic, tear jerking scenes nobody can dislike.  This movie is about drone operations and their mission to assassinate some… Continue reading
