This sci-fi flick stars Mila Kunis,  Channing Tatum and Eddie Redmayne. Now.... I don’t care if anyone thinks it’s wrong for me to review a movie I have not finished watching, but I JUST COULDN’T DO IT!! I like all three of these actors well enough, but this movie is HORRIBLE. The acting is HORRIBLE! I only lasted 20 minutes. Why? Number one: Jupiter Jones (Kunis) is a poor slave-like cleaning woman working alongside her mother and “famiily” made up of a few additional women who only speak…

Starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. Let me begin by stating that I have feelings about the remaking of a cult classic. I don’t like the idea. But I am ever open minded, and to prove it I will start by saying, I hated this movie for about the first 40 minutes. BUT! (unlike another movie that will remain unnamed) I did not give up on it. First off, Mad Max is a weird movie to begin with. It’s like a ride inside the mind of a crazy person on hallucinogens. And that is the beauty of Mad Max…

This enchanting film stars Anna Kendrick, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, and many more, including Johnny Depp as the Big Bad Wolf (we’ll get to his part later!). Based on the musical Broadway production by the same title, it is full of singing and fantastical characters, making this movie utterly delightful and charming. Speaking of charming, nothing could be farther from the truth when it comes to our normally beloved Prince Charming, who, in this depiction, though handsome in deed and…

This movie is directed by Angelina Jolie and stars Jack O’ Connell as Louie Zamperini. We are first introduced to a young Louis, who is a belligerent, out-of-control, rough and tumble, juvenile delinquent, who everyone has had quite enough of. But Louis’ life takes a turn when his older brother, Pete, takes direct charge and encourages him to train to become a runner, which Louis excels at, turning him into a record-breaking track star. Louis’ motto, words repeated to him by his brother time…

This is a well acted teenage drama starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Jamie Blackley. Despite having a fairly simple plot, this movie takes hold nearly immediately with believability and heart. Set against a back drop of a very good soundtrack comprised of the works composed by the characters themselves whose lives are centered around music, I found myself easily drawn into the alternate reality of Mia Hall's ( Moretz) out of body experience. After a devastating car accident also involving her…

A block-buster summer disaster flick starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson? OKAY!!! I cannot stress enough how much I LOVE disaster movies. I don't care how cheesy. In fact, the cheesier the better. Who can resist this kind of lives-on-the-line drama? Not me! This movie has it all. The Daughter, who needs saving. The Soon-To-Be Ex Wife, who needs saving. The Adorable Guy with Lovable Kid Brother (they meet Girl) both, need saving. And, of course, The Handsome Hunkaluv…

Starring Sam Rockwell as Dad and husband, Eric Bowen, Rosemarie DeWitt as wife and Mom, and Kennedi Clements as Maddy (Caroline, in the original version). I'm going to give a nod to young Kyle Catlett who plays the brother, who has a much more personal role in saving the day and who also is equally central to the story as Maddy. So, this was another what I consider Cult Classic Remake that I went into with my personal feelings about remaking a cult classic (don't touch my cult classics!) but…

If you are a fan of the first movie, you will be delighted to know that this sequel brings back our beloved characters played by Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, among others, and of course, Dev Patel as Sonny Kapoor, the ever endearing, pie-in-the-sky dreamer, and owner of the First Best Marigold Hotel. As it turns out, Sonny’s dreams aren’t as unreachable as everyone else thinks. And not only does he attain them, he does it Bollywood style—Awesome! In this second chapter, we are…

This movie is directed by Clint Eastwood and stars Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, a down home, true-blood Texan who had dreams of becoming a cowboy, but instead, became a legend in his own time. While Kyle’s “talent” is unmet by any other like him, and he is hailed an American hero, these come at a price. As Kyle sets sight on his targets, often shown to us through the lens of his scope, we are witness to the moral conflict within his heart and mind. One scene is particularly unnerving as we…

Starring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner. I love Kevin Costner. I do not love football. BUT I LOVE FOOTBALL MOVIES!! Tell me, What is it about football that makes it, in every case (And, yes, I'm pretty sure, Ev-er-ee!), the perfect subject and makings for an amazing movie?? (And, yes, I mean Ah-may-zing!) Costner is great as Cleveland Brown Manager Sonny Weaver. A guy who is highly under pressure, who never can get a moment to think, let alone get a single uninterrupted moment with his…

They Came Together - Directed by David Wain. Never quite going far enough with any of the sketches, this rom com satire felt like Wain at his laziest.

Directed by Ivan Reitman.  With Kevin Costner, Chadwick Boseman, Jennifer Garner, Frank Langella. At the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver has the opportunity to rebuild his team when he trades for the number one pick. He must decide what he's willing to sacrifice on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with NFL dreams.

This was my very first review which I did as a post on facebook as a rant because I hated this movie so much I couldn't keep it in and had to vent! To this movie I say ”NOOOOOOOOO!-ah". I give it minus a trillzillion ☆'s. I don't care that it's unreasonable and not even a number.

Hachi -- a movie based on true events that truly make me understand why I am a dog person. They are truly beyond loyal and better than people. You won't have a dry eye in sight but cuddle up your pup and watch this story. <3
