Movie Review – The Machine

When you’re trying to figure out what movie to see this weekend, I have some crucial advice for you. Being a huge Bert Kreischer fan, I was horribly disappointed with The Machine. Don’t get me wrong, there was some of his humor but nothing like what I was expecting. The humor is more so in […]


Movie Review – Kandahar

TL;DR If you’re really in the mood for a Gerald Butler action film then I recommend rewatching any other movie he’s been in. It will be more enjoyable than this. Unpolished The script for this movie has potential, but it needs about a half-dozen rewrites before it should have been produced. The first half of […]


Movie Review – The Little Mermaid

Hopefully, my 10-year-old grand-niece will go see this movie this weekend, and I’ll ask her to write a review because I can’t imagine why anyone would care what a 56-year-old man, who doesn’t care for musicals, thinks about a kid’s musical. But you’re here, so here goes. I guess the singing was pretty good, but […]


Movie Review – About My Father

About My Father is a cute meet-the-parents type of comedy. These movies seem to roll off Robert DeNiro’s tongue without him even trying. Is it as funny as Meet the Fockers? No, but it was still a fun way to spend the afternoon. The story itself is a pretty old one, but what made this […]

Movie Review – Fast X

Grading a movie like Fast X is a challenge. What do I grade it against? Other Fast and Furious movies? Other action movies, or holistically against all movies? I could try to grade Fast X with one of those approaches or a combination of them, but generally, I prefer to grade a movie against the best possible version of itself. Movies […]


Movie Review – Hypnotic

I don’t think this should have been a movie. It would have been a better TV show. Come to think of it; it reminds me a lot of an episode from the X-Files—Pusher, season 3, episode 17. If you watch the extra scene in the credits, then it’s not too late. It might still be […]

Movie Review – Book Club: The Next Chapter

There’s no denying that this movie set out to do what it intended. It’s fun galavanting around with these four long-time friends in exotic Italy. There are numerous laugh-out-loud moments in the movie and every actress gets her fair shot at the spotlight. Kudos to the writers: Bill HoldermanErin Simms. I’m moderately impressed with the […]


Movie Review – Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.

Picture it, 1970. Mrs. Judy Blume publishes one of the most iconic pre-teen books ever written. Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret. She was able to create a story that would touch the heart of every young girl that read it. I remember I was in fifth grade and picked that book during library time. As […]

Movie Review – Big George Foreman: The Miraculous Story of the Once and Future Heavyweight Champion of the World

This feels a little more like something that should have been streaming than making it to theaters. It’s not bad. The production quality is adequate. The acting was fine. It maybe could have been a tad shorter, but it didn’t feel too overly long. It’s just an average movie. Not good, not bad. Just something […]


Movie Review – Beau Is Afraid

I’m not sure what to make of this movie. But I have a review to write, so I’ll do my best. First of all, you don’t need to see this three-hour movie in a theater. It will be just as enjoyable streaming at home in a month or so. The best thing I can say […]
