Ben Hur (2016) – Review

Synopsis Ben Hur is stripped from his wealth and family by his adopted brother, Messala.   After year of being a slave, Ben Hur escapes and plots his revenge in the form of a street race… I mean  a chariot race. Review  I didn’t hate the movie, but I definitely thought the film could’ve been…

Moonlight (2016): Review

I went to two screenings last week, Moonlight & Dr. Strange… And Dr. Strange wasn’t my favorite of the two films. As the credits rolled at the end of the movie, I shared my thoughts with my friend, Miko.  I told her that overall, the movie was just okay.  By the time we left the…

Dr. Strange (2016) – Review

Going into this movie I had some reservations.  I thought I was gonna see a mystical version of Ant-Man, but what I got was a mystical version of Iron Man.  Though I don’t think it was a bad thing, I was surprised that though they were going through familiar territory, I was still entertained. Dr….

Hacksaw Ridge (2016): Review

Hacksaw Ridge on the surface seems like an epic WWII drama, but what I got out of it was a high budget faith based film.  I can’t say I didn’t like it, but what the film lacked was a story that could enjoyed by secular folk. This is a very basic story.  Desmond Doss finds…

The Accountant (2016): Review

I had a few reservations prior to watching this movie.  I thought the action was going to be lacking, the humor was going to be cheesy, the story to be cliched and the acting was gonna be phoned in.  I’m very happy to say that I was proven wrong. We learn from the beginning that…

Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001): Fresh Eyes

I never had the urge to watch this series.  To me, there wasn’t anything for me to see. But after 15 years, I sat back and finally got myself to watch it. From the beginning, the movie reminded me of Kung Fu movies I grew up with.  The chosen warrior who is destined to be…

American Honey (2016): Review

I came into the theater only knowing that Shia LaBeouf was in the movie and that it some awards at Cannes.  So when I watched the film, I had the same expectations that I had when I saw “The Room”. “The Room” it is not, but it wasn’t bad. Star (Sasha Lane) is the main…

War Dogs (2016): Review

I was somewhat excited to watch this.  I had the notion that this movie was gonna be a comedic version of “God Of War”.  What I got another “God Of War” that wasn’t as good. David Packouz (Miles Teller) is down on his luck.  He left a life of massaging to sell sheets.  When his…
