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...

Let's call this a reverse review. I am giving my final opinion early because that is how fantastic this film is. Logan is the greatest movie involving Hugh Jackman's Wolverine which is increasingly appropriate considering it is Jackman's last run for the character. While the quality of X-Men films has...

It had been a Saturday night and I was home alone. Maybe 11:45pm had not been the best time to start watching a movie but we all make responsible decisions. The Outsiders was a familiar name of a book I know had read but had somehow forgotten. And so, although not the most responsible decision, it e...

*Spoilers* Although it’s been out for quite a while, the movie “The Impossible” has finally been added to Netflix. When I first watched this movie a few years back it left quite the mark on me and I do not think I will ever forget it. “The Impossible” is a captivating movie that follows...
