Men In Black: International (2019) offers self-neuralyzing entertainment

Men In Black International Review

For a franchise which has often been plagued with a sense of déjà vu (indeed its first sequel was an almost note for note remake of the first film and its second was themed around the redoing historic events), the most disappointing aspect of “Men In Black: International” is how familiar it all feels, despite … Continue reading Men In Black: International (2019) offers self-neuralyzing entertainment

The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) Review

The latest entry in the Lego feature film franchise is also its most blatantly cynical toy commercial, offering little in return for your forked over ticket money other than a needlessly starry cast, a weak storyline and a massive middle finger to fans of the original cartoon series. When evil Lord Garmadon (Justin Theroux) launches … Continue reading The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) Review

The Big Sick (2017) Review

Sweet, funny and poignantly insightful, “The Big Sick” is a perfectly pitched romantic comedy semi-autobiographical memoir of how star Kumail Nanjiani met his real life wife. Kumail is making a living as an Uber driver as he tries to get his big break in stand up comedy. After a gig, he meets Emily (Zoe Kazan) … Continue reading The Big Sick (2017) Review

Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) Review

They say the dose makes the poison and your enjoyment of boisterous comedy “Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates” will depend very much on your individual tolerance of Adam Devine. Mike and Dave Stangle (Adam Devine and Zac Efron), the poster boys for arrested development, are given an ultimatum leading up to their beloved sister’s … Continue reading Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) Review

Central Intelligence (2016) Review

Are you a fan of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson? Sure you are. How could you not be? He’s cinema’s reigning charisma champion. Having helped to reinvigorate the “Fast And Furious” franchise, Journeyed ‘2’ The Mysterious Island and held the San Andreas Fault together with his bare hands, now he’s out to rock the world of … Continue reading Central Intelligence (2016) Review

Goosebumps (2016) Review

Although I’m aware of the franchise, I was too old for the “Goosebumps” books when they first came out. I earned my reading strips devouring the adventures of The Hardy Boys (the very first book without any pictures I read was “While The Clock Ticked”) and Alfred Hitchcock And The Three Investigators. When I got into … Continue reading Goosebumps (2016) Review

Hell Baby (2014) Review

If you’re a fan of “Reno 911!” then you’ll probably get a kick out of this reasonably amusing spoof of “Rosemary’s Baby”, “The Omen”, “Devil’s Due” and a dozen other coming-of-the-anti-Christ movies. Starring Leslie Bibb and Rob Corddry (an actor I always get muddled up with David Koechner), it tells the story of a young … Continue reading Hell Baby (2014) Review
