Cars 3 Movie Review

The use of the late actor’s sound bites from previous films is seamlessly integrated into the new edition. It shows a love and respect for that titan of the big screen that feels real. The film's message of dealing with the advancement of technology and feeling left behind by it is an interesting one given the context.   //   As always the animation looks fantastic and thankfully stays squarely in the animated world and resists the need to be photo realistic. It’s a ...

The Mummy Movie Review

The film is spectacular looking while not being that memorable in hindsight. It’s main thrust is action not character development but as an intro to the previous monster mayhem from many years ago, it remains to be seen if they can capture the charm of the originals. It was a simpler time back them and what was once frightening, now needs to be ramped up to make an impression with current audiences.   //   Next classic to get the reboot is suppose to be the Bride Of ...

Baywatch Movie Review

Getting the mixture of a cringe comedy just right is not an easy task as one person’s comic meal is another’s awful offal but Baywatch more than tickles the funny bone. It plays out just like bad American television, thin plot, thinner actors and The Rock. Mr Johnson gives good comedy and he and the cast look like they were having a right good time with the material.   //   Fans of bad cinema are out there and when you base a bad film comedy on a bad American ...
