Retro Movie Review – The Lego Movie

The underlying message is a positive one (believing in yourself and seeing greatness in everyday moments) but really even if the theme was completely saccharin, who could take that much offense when it is delivered by yellow plastic beings with hooks for hands!   //   The jokes fly fast and furious while the filmmakers get the mix of adult humor and childlike wonder spot on. There is also the fun of identifying the voice actors. The list includes Morgan Freeman, Jonah ...

Charlie’s Angels Movie Review

The film works hard at establishing Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska as the new angels and their varied ethnic backgrounds make for a refreshing change.

Brightburn Movie Review

Brandon Breyer (Jackson A. Dunn) is a somewhat typical eleven year-old, hyper intelligent but just that little bit different and kind of an outcast.

When Brandon celebrates his twelfth birthday, things start to change.   //   The film sets an ominous feel from the opening credits with some very creepy ...

The Happytime Murders Movie Review

Director Brian Henson (son of Jim) gets to scrap the good taste and limited children friendly world and indulge in something very much restricted viewer worthy. Casting Melissa McCarthy gives the film a perfect B movie atmosphere and lowers the expectations of the work having to be fine art. Dirty puppet jokes and bad human jokes, what could be better?   //   Setting the story in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles and following a down on his luck private dick scenario ...
