Movie Review: ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’

As a kid who grew up on T2: Judgement Day, I’ve always had to check out the new Terminator movies. However, Dark Fate raised the stakes by bringing back Linda Hamilton. Sure, we’ve seen Arnold before. It’s nice to have him back. But Hamilton? That’s a game changer. While Dark Fate isn’t the greatest movie of the year, or the best film in the franchise, it’s a lot of fun and worth checking out.

First, let’s start with the new faces. Mackenzie Davis plays Grace, the augmented human who has Terminator like abilities – super fast, super strong and with tech enhancements that can scan things at a distance or hack computer devices. She’s sent back to protect a girl named Dani Ramos, played by Natalia Reyes. Now to be honest, Dani is a lot more likeable than Grace. Dani is the super soldier with a bit of an attitude and she doesn’t get along that well with Sarah Connor. Dani, on the other hand, is very likeable. She’s not a super soldier, or a bad ass like Sarah Connor, but she’s capable and learning, much like Sarah in the first Terminator. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’…

Movie Review: ‘Doctor Sleep’

Doctor Sleep is interesting in that it’s not just a movie based off a Stephen King book, but a sequel to a Stephen King book and a sequel to a movie, which is a rare thing. As a fan of the original Stanley Kubrick movie The Shinning, I was interested to see how this film would tie-in or differ since Kubrick’s movie was a slight departure from the book. Also, I was a little disappointed with how the book Doctor Sleep ended, so I was hoping this movie could somehow save the story and make it better. Amazingly, this film was able to do all of the above and more. It captures all the core features of the book and makes it better, it links into Kubrick’s film to create a near seamless continuation of the story, and it stands as a second chapter fusing together both book and film to create a thing of it’s own.
