Film Review: Love & Friendship

Love & Friendship is a Jane Austen adaptation by the way of Whit Stillman and the results are as witty as one might hope, even if the premise gets stretched pretty thin. Continue reading Film Review: Love & Friendship

Film Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is an improvement on the character/story side of things for this reboot of the franchise, but lacks the action spectacle of the previous entry. Continue reading Film Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Film Review: X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse is the latest (last?) of the First Class reboot of the X-Men franchise and while it has its moments it never really excels above being average superhero fare. Continue reading Film Review: X-Men: Apocalypse

Me Before You is a solid little piece of romance tragedy with an incredible lead turn by Emilia Clarke. Continue reading Film Review: Me Before You
