Magic Mike XXL might be a perfect sequel; keeping what worked best, ramping up what people want most, and reworking a few little things to make it all just right. Continue reading Film Review: Magic Mike XXL

Film Review: Terminator Genisys

Now that we’re down the sequel road quite a bit in the Terminator series it’s hard not to tell Arnold to maybe get lost somewhere along the scenic route as he makes good on his iconic “I’ll be back” catchphrase. Do I really want to see a past-his-prime action star trying to relieve his youth on screen? Do I, Harrison Ford? Not really. The thing is, Terminator: Genisys shows that sometimes the old coming back can be a good thing. Continue reading Film Review: Terminator Genisys

Results is a shaggy character study with three great performances, but the film never really hooked me in to the drama around the characters. Continue reading Film Review: Results

Film Review: Tomorrowland

Tomorrowland Header

Give a film the title of Tomorrowland and it’s only natural to expect to see something largely focusing on the land of tomorrow. Unfortunately what we do get is something more bogged down in the generic doom and gloom story as to why we don’t deserve to go there. Continue reading Film Review: Tomorrowland
