Remakes are a tricky business, always have been and always will. They have a notorious habit of either bombing horrendously, such as the infamous 2006 remake of the Wicker Man with Nicholas Cage, or soaring beyond expectations, such as The Ring, which was heavily based off a Japanese film under the s...

With Christmas break approaching quickly, family-friendly movies are in high demand. Surprisingly, my family lucked out when we accidentally rented Paddington, a PG movie about a talking bear named Paddington from Peru that traveled to London in search of a family. Paddington is a 2014 movie directed b...

Here’s a movie review I’ve been waiting to give. Kingsman: The Secret Service is one of my favorite movies of all time. I could watch it a million times and never get sick of it. I love the action, the plot and the humor. So when I heard they were making a sequel I was beyond excited and knew rig...

Like most people, on the opening night of the new movie based on Stephen King’s novel, It, I got a group of friends together and made my way to the closest theater in anticipation. Unlike others, I went in blindly. I have not read the novel nor seen the original film with the same name that came ou...

NO SPOILERS Walking into the theatre, I had no expectations; I already liked Tom Holland as Spiderman, and I was already familiar with his character. Despite this, I still found myself surprised by how much I liked the movie and how different it was from the typical superhero movie. Of course, it s...

Made in 2006, Little Miss Sunshine is what every heartfelt movie strives to be and contains an original quality that every filmmaker wishes to create. What makes Little Miss Sunshine so original is its ability to mix serious issues such as divorce, bankruptcy, addiction and even suicide with a gentle...

You're bored, and you want to watch a movie, but you don't quite know what genre or what movie you want to watch. Comedy? But not too cliche. Action? But not too... much. Romance? But not too sappy. Mystery? But not too confusing. That's what I was feeling when I decided to watch The Grand Budapest Hotel....

The popular consensus for "Dead Men Tell No Tales" is negative. From what I understand, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have lost their luster, and audiences are tired of this seemingly neverending series. With each new movie, the ratings have been on a steady decrease. Now, according to critics,...

After hearing numerous spectacular reviews, I finally got around to watching La La Land--the 2016 musical written and directed by Damien Chazelle. Needless to say, I was disappointed. The movie stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as a young couple with dreams in Los Angeles (wow!). La La Land (accord...

The Fast and the Furious franchise is going to space in the next two or three movies. You heard it here first folks. The movies are getting more and more ridiculous with each and every installation. I can't even say that's a disappointing fact, sometimes a movie is just an action flick. As much as...

So here is a something I do not do often: a movie review. Although I have done many reviews in the past, I have rarely reviewed any films. Especially not any films that were made before the 1990's. However when I saw this film, I instantly loved it. Old movies are some of my favorite things, and Inherit...

Spring break is on the horizon. Regardless of what your plans are, most Americans are reported watching at least one movie during the break. If you're one of these people and you're looking for a movie you haven't seen or heard of, then the Deadzone is a highly recommended one. Made in 1983 starring...
