Expendables 3 movie review

Grade: C Good news: Expendables 3 is much better than Expendables 2, which was horrible. The plot for Ex3 is about as predictable as a grenade with the pin removed. In this case I’d say that’s a good thing. No one wants plot twists and surprises. Just make up an excuse to amp up the […]

Into The Storm movie review

Grade: D+ I’m not a big fan of comparing movies but it just makes sense to compare Into The Storm with Twister. Twister had a better story/plot and much better humor. Into The Storm has better graphics. (They have18 years of CGI improvements to work with so it would be a travesty if it didn’t.) […]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie review

Grade: D Simply put: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a kid’s movie. I’m not a TMNT fan and never was. I’ve never seen or read any of their cartoons or comics. Therefore, I can’t say how a lifelong fan will feel about the movie and weather it lived up to any expectations. But if you’re […]

Guardians Of The Galaxy

Grade: A- Guardians Of The Galaxy was awesome fun; plenty of humor, amazing visuals, and great action sequences. Best of all the story and acting bring everything together in a suspenseful climax. I often complain that many action movies are too short but that’s not a problem in GOTG. Excluding the credits the movie is […]

Hercules – movie review

Grade: C- I hate giving bad reviews to movies with my favorite actors. But there’s no escaping it, “Hercules” wasn’t very good. Lets start with the battle scenes. They were the worst filmed battles I’ve seen in decades. The cinematography was bland, and the choreography was redundant. I honestly got bored during the battle in […]

LUCY – movie review

Grade: B- “Lucy” is like two movies mashed together: one is enjoyable and explores interesting questions; the other is lame and hyper-violent. Rating this movie is a question of how to balance these two. Where this movie really fails is in it’s brevity. Not including the credits it’s only an hour and twenty-two minutes long. […]

Feedback needed for potential update to app

I’d love to get your feedback on a possible change to the app. Currently we have information about each Peetime at the top of the Peetime screen where we briefly describe what happens during each scene. That way you’ll have some idea if you’ll be missing an action scene, or character development, or whatever. Would […]

Earth To Echo – movie review

Grade: C+ If it wasn’t obvious from the previews “Earth To Echo” is essentially a retelling of “ET”. But I’m pretty sure it won’t be remembered as one of the classics. This is definitely a kids movie. There’s not much for adults to cling to. The story centers around the close friendship of three boys […]

Transformers: Age of Extinction, movie review

Grade: B- There’s not a lot to say about Transformers: Age of Extinction. (TAOE) It’s a Transformers movie with bits of awesome, a dash of humor, and loads of plot holes. But as we’ve seen before, Transformers can effortlessly jump over plot holes. When comparing TAOE with the other Transformer movies I’d have to put […]
