The 5th Wave - Review

   The continued craze of making any successful young adult novel into a movie strikes again with the adaptation of the 2013 novel, The 5th Wave. Of course the expectations are that if the first does well, then the other two novels in the trilogy would be adapted to complete the trifecta of a dystopian future. But much to the studios dismay, a franchise was not started this weekend.

Dirty Grandpa - Review

   Comedies are such a hard genre to judge these days. Very few are ever released that are great films, but a majority of them are still funny in their own ways. Dirty Grandpa is another one of these strange cases. In my heart I know the film is not good in the slightest, but the laughs are still there. Enough so that I can say I enjoyed watching it, but not so much that I can say it’s a good movie.

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi - Review

    When thinking of directors with enough talent to tell the story of the Benghazi attack in 2012, Michael Bay is certainly not the first name that jumps out. The director of such masterpieces as Pearl Harbor and all four Transformers movies (that was sarcastic for the record), Bay is not the go to when telling such a recent and grueling true story. But when it boils down to it, Bay crafts a pretty decent film and placing it among one of his personal bests.

Oscar Nominations – Reactions

   It is finally that time of year. 2015 has finished and thus the Academy Awards are coming soon enough. But before we get there, some nominations must be named so they can be criticized and questioned until the day of. 

   That, however, is not the case this year.

The Forest - Review

   To start 2016, the theaters across America have been graced with another horror film that hardly earned any expectations at all. As a month that has continually supported it’s claim as the dumping ground for horrible cinema, January starts off 2016 just as expected. The Forest, while not a good movie by any means, certainly isn’t awful either. It falls victim to a few too many clichés along the way throughout its rather interesting premise, ultimately dragging down any sort of suspense.
