The Predator Movie Review

He has created a Predator movie for current audience members with a voracious appetite for action. He turns everything up to eleven, more carnage, more guns, more explosions and more stupidity. He gleefully disregards the laws of physics and sensibility and tries his best to overwhelm.   //   With this level of overload, you can’t help but have a rollicking good time. The film takes full advantage of giants screens, giant sound systems and giant cravings for pure ...

Searching Movie Review

It also tells the story of a parent’s worst nightmare, the disappearance of their child. John Cho (Harold and Kumar & Star Trek) is perfectly cast as a father with a rigid adherence to order, one that is truly tested when his daughter goes missing. He is aided in his search by a female detective played by Debra Messing (Will & Grace)   //   Messing’s performance is outstanding and fearless. She sidestep the glamour and is often shown sans makeup and bleary ...

A Simple Favour Movie Review

These talks are stitched together via a sordid tale of insurance fraud and murder. There are some rather large plot holes and elements that make little sense but this is not meant to degrade the experience because this is a fine work of populist entertainment.   //   As such there are a substantial number of unifying moments that had the entire audience on the same page. This lead to a very desirable feeling of shared community. A dark room filled with lots of people who ...

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 ...

The Darkest Minds Movie Review

Mixing storylines of the traditional road movie with science fiction themes and a teen coming of age saga makes up the parts at play here. Some of those ideas work and others don’t and the deciding factor is often the age of the viewer. The film is very much aimed at a younger audience and will score more points with the teen crowd.   //   There are universal moments at work here like the selfless act of sacrificing personal ambitions for the common good. Also the act ...
