Daddy's Home 2 review

It seems like the push for holiday movies, particular ones that revolve around Christmas, come earlier and earlier each year. While most families haven’t even finalized their Thanksgiving menu selections yet, we’re already seeing movies that are focused on and around December 25th. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg went toe-to-toe before eventually seeing eye-to-eye in …

Time for a Reel THOR: RAGNAROK review

Thor: Ragnarok review

Walt Disney Pictures, still in their embarrassment of riches phase, has pretty much figured out that whatever the studio churns out will make money. Thankfully, Kevin Feige and company have no desire to coast to the finish line. The clear winner here, at least so far, has been the countless fans of the franchise. Being …

Time for a Reel A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS review

A Bad Moms Christmas review

Even though Halloween feels like it just happened…wait, it did just happen, focus has already shifted to the most wonderful time of the year. Poor Thanksgiving. There are probably more Christmas movies than all other holiday themed movies combined. Bad Moms (2016) was a major box office success when it was released last summer. A …

Time for a Reel SUBURBICON review

Suburbicon review

When it comes to the Coen Brothers, guessing whether or not their works will be successful is about as unpredictable as their plots. Gauging their box office impact, Joel and Ethan Coen have had their highs (True Grit (2010)) and they’ve certainly had their lows (Intolerable Cruelty (2003)). While many mainstream critics fawn over the …

Time for a Reel THE FLORIDA PROJECT review

The Florida Project review

Sean Baker is the writer/director/producer for The Florida Project and is eager to showcase his talents with this low budget independent drama. This is where his career currently lives and there’s nothing wrong with that. Starlet (2012) and Tangerine (2015) were both done on micro-budgets but each was well received by audiences. One thing you’ll …

Time for a Reel THE SNOWMAN review

The Snowman review

Jo Nesbø is a best selling Norwegian author who has written more than 20 novels to date. By far, his most successful works are his Harry Hole novels.

Time for a Reel THE FOREIGNER review

The Foreigner review

Jackie Chan has been acting for 55 years and has been in well over 100 movies. I’ll let that sink in for a minute. On its own that’s pretty impressive, but when you factor in the physical exertion that Chan welcomes, things are raised to an entirely new level of appreciation. Time has found its …

Time for a Reel HAPPY DEATH DAY review

Happy Death Day

Live. Die. Repeat. Do you happen to remember Tom Cruise’s 2014 sci-fi action adventure, Edge of Tomorrow? It was a damn good movie that suffered from an unfortunate marketing identity crisis. The title did not fit with what the film was trying to portray, worse yet, the studio couldn’t quite settle on a title. As …
