Creed II

It’s crazy that it has now been 42 years since the original Rocky movie was released and we have now had 8 movies in the series. I found it interesting that Ryan Coogler (Director of Creed, Black Panther) took a step back on Creed II and just did some of the screenwriting while Stevan Caple…

A Star is Born

I have been a big fan of Bradley Cooper since his duo of unrelated “American Movies” came out in 2013 and 2014 (American Hustle, American Sniper). His latest film A Star is Born is not only a soulful and emotional experience to watch, but it also represents Cooper’s directing debut. Alongside Lady Gaga and Sam Elliott, Cooper takes us…

A Simple Favor

Based on the Darcey Bell Novel, A Simple Favor brings us a Comedy/Mystery like none I have ever seen before. Anna Kendrick plays single mom and enthusiastic vlogger Stephanie Smothers, as she tries to get to the bottom of the disappearance of her best friend Emily Nelson (Blake Lively). The problem is the Emily was a secretive…

Uncle Drew

From Pepsi commercial to viral YouTube hit, and finally to the big screen Uncle Drew once again laces up the sneakers and attempts to show some young bloods how the game is supposed to be played. Put together by Pepsi Productions and Temple Hill Entertainment, relatively unknown director Charles Stone III put Uncle Drew’s legendary…

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are back in action for Ant-Man and the Wasp. The movie takes place just after the events of Captain America: Civil War and the events of that movie have a lot to do with how this movie plays out. It is once again directed by Peyton Reed and it brings…

Solo: A Star Wars Story

In the weeks leading up to the release of Solo, I was feeling pretty nervous that it would not be able to live up to the rest of the Star Wars movies. It’s a tough task to take a character that everyone knows and loves already and make a backstory movie with a different actor. Couple that with…

Annihilation

Director Alex Garland is back at it with another Sci-fi thriller on the big screen. Annihilation stars Natalie Portman (affectionately known as PadBae) as an ex-military Biologist that goes into the otherworldly phenomena known as “the shimmer”. The problem is that no one who goes into the shimmer ever comes out. This film is a wild ride,…

The Post

The Post is the newest Spielberg film and it stars two legendary actors in Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. It is about the events that lead up to the exposing of the United States’ cover-up of the state of the Vietnam War. The Washington Post’s decision to publish the information on the matter is essentially what…
