JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM

I honestly believe Jurassic World is one of the worst blockbuster films of this decade. The plot and premise are amazingly stupid. The characters are bland and poorly developed. The effects and action sequences are mediocre and unimaginative. The amount of fan service and meta commentary is unbearable. Worst of […]

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

There seems to be this bizarre train of thought amongst my age demographic (millennials who grew up in the 1990’s) that the film Jumanji is a “classic”.

JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK

I love Tom Cruise. I think he’s an absolute crazy person, but as an actor and movie star, he’s always a treat to watch. Sure, he may be somewhat typecast as “Tom Cruise action man”, but the guy oozes so much charisma and charm, you can’t take […]
