Jungle Cruise Movie Review
With previous film adaptations like the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, the park ride only provides a mere suggestion of storyline and here they have taken it to the extremes. It has given Mr. Johnson the chance to really ham it up and Ms. Blunt an opportunity to be one badass señorita. Their interpersonal relationship is played mostly for laughs.
The storyline revolves around a secret flower pedal that could help save mankind from illness and a curse that ...

A Quiet Place Part II Movie Review
Starting with a first reel filled with departures, the film drops the enigmatic approach of part one by letting the audience in on the story behind the alien’s first day on earth. Generating this amount of explanation early on isn’t the only change. The sound design is very different as well. There are few completely silent scenes and a more conventional approach is used to creating tension. Popcorn vendors will rejoice.
After the opening, the story picks up ...

Retro Movie Review – Looper
Looper dives into this environment with a very slick look and some very well known actors (one slightly altered by prostheses). It skirts the line between science fiction and thriller status with a quiet confidence and draws you into more of an examination of the characters lives than a study of the raw science. It has to be said that the technology behind the time travel is hardly mentioned.
It also comments on the emptiness that the day’s technology has ...
Retro Movie Review – Sicario
This is a modern day tale of drug running and Mexico/America border politics and it draws you in with bold strokes. It then details the character’s action in such a way as to illustrate the horrors that both the innocent and guilty have to endure during these drug wars.
The screenplay leads you to make certain assumptions about the main protagonists actions and it’s to its satisfying complexity that right up until the end of the last reel there are still ...
Retro Movie Review – A Quiet Place
It also feature a screenplay that plants details in such an intelligent way that when things come to fruition, they make much more sense. There are no moments of the oblivious ignorance of illogical plot devices due to lazy writing that plague so many horror films.
The story revolves around new life forms (alien or not, it is never completely explained) that are driven by sounds, so the population now has to live in complete silence.To make even the smallest of ...
