MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

Written by
Bad Boys For Life This is another installment of this franchise, as Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back again.  Whether this is good or not is still up in the air, but we continue to walk down memory lane with no real original ideas being the word of the day at the movies.     This will find an audience.  Could be fun!   Doolittle Now that Iron Man has died, Robert Downey Jr.…

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

1917 This looks amazing, and I can't wait to see this!  Based on a true story from WWI, this is filmed in a revolutionary new way. This week has been good to this movie as it just won a Golden Globe.  Big cast, and a really amazing story.     Many think this is the Oscar winner this year!   Just Mercy This too is based on a true story from the American South, about…

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

Written by
Next week many of 2019's biggest acclaimed movies go to wide release, Like 1917, and Just Mercy.   This week is a quiet one.   The Grudge This looks a bit creepy, and scary as this franchise goes on.  Seems a strange time of the year for a movie with this content is out, a Halloween release may hav been better. BUT January can be a very tough time at the movies, and some may…

MOVIE REVIEW - A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

Written by
I wish I could say this is perfect, but I can't.  But what I can say is that Tom Hanks is terrific in this darn good movie that puts PBS TV Icon Fred Rogers front and center.  And he deserves it.  This is based on true events, but sadly it deals far too much about a middle aged reporter and his daddy issues from years ago that are relateble for sure, but in the end,…

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

Written by
This may be the biggest weekend at the movies in a long time, as far as new movies are concerned.  Thanksgiving week.   A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood Tom Hanks.  Thanksgiving weekend. A fully immersable role.  PG-13.  This movie about Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers) is on the list of "mandatory going."  You almost have to go, like it's a city ordinance of something.  With all due respect to the incredible Hanks, I think many…

MOVIE REVIEW - The Good Liar

Written by
You may think this is just another movie for the over 70's crowd to go see, but you would be wrong, and still technically right I guess. Yes, this stars Helen Mirren, and Ian McKellen, neither one can wear the Spring Chicken costume anymore, or ride the MIllenium Force probably.  But this is really good.  Indeed, they are the stars here, but the real star of this movie, is - the script.  And today, that's…

MOVIE PREVIEW - New This Week!

Written by
Charlies Angels Here we go again, Charlies Angels. A new cast, a new spin and new look.  The TV show of the 1970's was groundbreaking to a degree.  We had never seen a show like it before, and it essentially made stars out of those not stars before.  Although the early returns are that the critics seem to like it.  That all seems so long ago, as this has been watered down, and made a…

MOVIE REVIEW - Midway

Written by
The national critics are overall not being kind to the latest WWII epic, Midway. This has been told once before in the 1976 film of the same name.  Was that a perfect picture? No. And niether is this.  But that doesn't mean it's not important, or bad.  This is pretty darn good. There has been a ton made of the amount of CGI in this movie, and I can't understand that.  The same critics make…

It's a big week at the movies as far as new releases are concerened.  And there appears to be something new for everyone.   Midway WWII flick based on new accounts of the famous battle of Midway Island that turned the tide to the Americans, in the Pacific for good. This has a really big cast, and is in the hands of a very capable director.  You may, or may not know about the original…
