I am a major fan of superhero movies. I’ve enjoyed just about every Marvel movie that’s come out in the last decade. And since I’ve known more about DC heroes than Marvel ones for...

“Scary Movie 5” Review

In the last decade, the Scary Movie series grossed over a billion dollars, revitalizing the genre of film parodies. “Scary Movie V,” the latest entry, is the most inept and unintelligible thus far. The...

“Walk of Shame” is shameful

Jordan Peele’s sophomore film, “Us,” was a highly anticipated release following the success of his directorial debut “Get Out.” The film follows a family of four: Adelaide (Lupita Nyong’o), her husband Gabe (Winston Duke)...

“Hot Tub Time Machine 2” so bad you’ll want to drown

January and February are often poor months for moviegoers: Big studios release tawdry films while most of the country is holed up in heavy rain or snows. These movies can be so bad, one...

“Mr. Right” is on the wrong track

She’s a lovelorn, quirky girl. He’s the other half who conveniently matches up to her eccentricity. Together, their personalities mesh into the seemingly appropriate recipe for a perfect unconventional couple. A story deviating from...
