    Movie review: 'Swiss Army Man' dead on arrival

    It's hard to fathom that a movie about a farting corpse with magical powers could not be amazing, but Swiss Army Man (opening today) shows that anything is possible. Hank (Paul Dano) is alone and starving on a deserted island when we meet him, despite having access to bags of chips and soda bottles...

    Steven Spielberg brings The BFG to fun life on the big screen

    It’s been quite a while since Steven Spielberg stepped into the realm of fantasy for a film that is more family friendly than anything else. His latest The BFG kind of came out of nowhere, but looks to take him back into the family friendly realm of imagination once again. The film sports a great...

    'The Legend of Tarzan' David Yates can't direct big budget affairs

    There's an old saying in poker, "It's better to be lucky than good." Oddly, the same can apply to some movie directors. Case in point, take David Yates. You may know him as the director of "The Tichborne Claimant." No? You never heard of that? How about the TV movie, "The Girl in the Café?" You don...
  • The BFG movie poster

    'The BFG' is far from a Spielberg classic

    In 1982 an amazing pairing happened between a screenwriter and a director to create "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial." Everyone knows Steven Spielberg was the director and Melissa Mathison was the writer. The movie held the 15-year record for the highest grossing movie. Today, July 1, 2016 the two team...

    The reason 'Independence Day: Resurgence' was not screened for critics is...

    ...because it SUCKS! Ordinarily this column does not use such low brow terms such as "sucks" to get a point across, but in this instance, there is no other way to say it. It was certainly suspicious when 20th Century Fox decided not to screen the movie for critics. That is usually a sign the studio...
  • Free State of Jones movie poster

    'Free State of Jones' is better suited for the History Channel

    Historical dramas are not known to be terribly entertaining. More often than not, they are quite boring. Unlike movies that are "based on a true story" which often fictionalizes events to make them more enjoyable, historical dramas tend to stick to the facts. Despite having a megastar like Matthew...

    If you have found yourself in a sequel coma this summer then there is good news today, June 17. A new movie opens up that is an original work and it is a buddy comedy too.

    Take an unforgettable underwater journey with Finding Dory

    With every Disney / Pixar film fans are typically eager for a sequel, but for some reason that doesn’t always happen.

    'The Conjuring 2' delivers scares

    Horror movies probably get the most sequels made. Once a new horror movie becomes a hit, a studio will start cranking out sequels one after the other. It's not that hard, either, as horror movies are usually cheap to make and profits come easily. Regarding the "Friday the 13th" franchise, it was...

    'Now You See Me 2' has no magic

    Why does it feel sequels are just getting worse and worse? That may be a rhetorical question, but 2016 especially has been a poor year for anything that has a "Part 2" or greater after their title. Then there are movies like, "Now You See Me 2" opening today, June 10 where you ask, "Why are they...
