Movie Review: Prey (2022)

I love Predator. It is one of my favorite movies. I will watch everything that features the Yautja, no matter how bad they are. I have known disappointment so many times that my hope for the series is fleeting. When I heard about Prey, there was the bittersweet sensation of cautious excitement because the trailer...

Movie Review: The 355 (2022)

Source As far as spy thrillers go, The 355 is just okay. I didn't hate this movie, but it also didn't leave much of an impression. I will forget what this movie is about tomorrow, and so will you. This movie doesn't do enough to earn a recommendation. A drug cartel has made a device that allows... Continue Reading →

Movie Reviews: Top Gun: Maverick(2022)

Source This is a fantastic movie that you need to see in theaters. While I believed that this film was going to be another shameless attempt at cashing in on our nostalgia, I was properly impressed by an experience that I can only describe as breathtaking. This is not a vanity project by a self-absorbed... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Gone Tomorrow (2017)

Gone Tomorrow is the uninteresting thriller you will probably forget watching. While there isn't anything objectively bad about this movie, it doesn't have the presence needed to make it work. It feels like a lesser unintended Taken reboot, but I would much rather be watching Taken. This movie is about a group of stoic brothers who are searching for their... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Little Big Soldier (2010)

Source Little Big Soldier is one of my favorite Jackie Chan movies. This pseudo-historical twist on an unlikely buddy comedy is a journey you really need to consider. It is a hilarious adventure with a powerful and relevant message. I have watched this movie in both the original Cantonese and its English dubbing. While the dubbing... Continue Reading →

YouTube Movie Review: The A Team (2010)

Source This movie is a lot of fun. It has explosions, some decent action, and fun characters. The story is a little lacking, but you aren’t watching this movie for the story. You are watching this movie for chases, explosions, and gunfights. Although some of the action falls flat because of the shaky-cam, it redeems... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: The King’s Man (2021)

Source I am not a huge fan of the series. Each movie in this series seems to miss its mark somehow, leaving us with a mediocre franchise. Kingsmen: The Secret Service has some decent action but the villain and story are bad. Kingsmen: The Golden Circle had a great villain, but the story and action were lacking. The Kings... Continue Reading →

YouTube Movie Review: Hackers (1995)

Source Hackers has not aged well. The dialect, fashion, and story feel obsolete. Don't get me wrong, there are some interesting characters but it is hard to get passed how cheesy the movie is. I would rather spend my time watching Wargames. It has a similar story but is done a lot better. If you've seen the live... Continue Reading →
