DC fans lose in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is a movie that’s average when it should be (and needs to be) great. It suffers primarily from an overuse of CGI and a nonsensical plot and dialogue, but benefits from good acting and a fascinating visual style. The acting has a huge range, from the great...

Diverge from seeing ‘Allegiant’

While I was indeed conscious while watching “Allegiant,” I’m still not entirely sure what happened in the film. The movie is all over the place. While the film’s usage of technology is slightly impressive, there are simply too many things going on at once. The overwhelming amount of action...

A lot of you who have not read the comic books lately, might haven’t heard of Deadpool. Deadpool is otherwise known as “The Merc with a Mouth” he a rare character that excels on every level; each scene, joke, kill, and word is unacceptable especially in his comic books. You might have seen him...

One time, when I was around 10, I had a nightmare that all my dolls came alive and tried to kill me. “Krampus” is the big screen version of that nightmare, but so much more horrifying. From what I heard around school, I expected “Krampus” to be some lame, “Goosebumps”-esque movie with a...

“Spectre” haunts James Bond, but not the franchise

View image | gettyimages.com “Spectre” plays like a James Bond greatest hits album: nothing new, but entertaining nonetheless. The fighting, acting and conversing are great, but the movie suffers from plot holes and relies too heavily on viewers having seen previous movies in the franchise. Daniel Craig returns as James Bond and does really well; however, the real standout performances come from Christoph Waltz (who plays the main v...

"Everest" is based on a true story about several expeditions up Mount Everest in 1996. I didn’t have any expectations for the movie, especially because I didn’t see many advertisements for the movie before it was released; however, based on the one trailer I did see, the movie seemed interesting,...

If you’re looking for cheap clichés and lost brain cells, then look no further the misadventures of the wacky yellow tic-tacs. Maybe minions were endearing in “Despicable Me” movie. However, the growing popularity of these pill-shaped hell-spawn has gone too far. I mean, whose brilliant idea...

Review: Jurassic World

“Jurassic Park” was my first real horror movie; naturally, I was easily frightened as a kid. With the release of “Jurassic World,” I felt that it was time to be re-scared. It delivered. “Jurassic World” brought a whole new meaning to CGI animation; the velociraptors were terrifying with...
