Movie Review: ‘The Gentlemen’

February 13, 2020 at 8:37 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

The Gentlemen is Guy Ritchie’s 10th film, and with his penchant for English gangster movies, this one is true to form. While it’s not his best film yet, it is a fun one. Plus it’s Matthew McConaughey’s first outing with Ritchie, so that’s a pretty good sell in itself.

Whether you’ve seen the trailers or not, there’s not much you need to know going in. Basically Matthew McConaughey is a gangster with a criminal empire and he’s the star of the movie. With a great cast of colorful characters, the movie spins a tale of twists, turns, burst of violence, and moments of humor. If you’ve seen any of Ritchie’s gangster/crime films, it’s along those lines. While this one has it’s own flavor, it doesn’t really raise the bar in any regard. However, it does entertain.

Movie Review: ‘Birds of Prey’

February 11, 2020 at 7:18 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | 1 Comment

To put it simply, Birds of Prey was a hot mess. The only good thing about the movie was Harley Quinn. It’s a shame because Margot Robbie is great as Quinn, but it appears DC can’t figure out how to make a good movie around her.

If you are a huge Harley Quinn fan, it’s still worth seeing because, let’s face it, you take what you can get. But there’s some cringe worthy moments in this film. A prime example is the big moment when Black Canary uses her special power and Harley skates out in front, propelled by her voice. It looked bad and it played out poorly. It just…felt…horrible. Some of the dialog was also cringe worthy. And most of the characters were poorly done and underdeveloped. So much time was spent on Harley that most of the other characters suffered. In fact the whole “Birds of Prey” concept took a backseat to Harley Quinn’s storyline. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Birds of Prey’…

Movie Review: ‘Gretel & Hansel’

February 5, 2020 at 9:09 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

Gretel & Hansel is based on the old fairy tale Hansel & Gretel. They flipped the name for the film as it’s a bit different. This story focuses on Gretel. With creepy imagery, music and characters, the film does an excellent job of spinning a tale about a witch and being wary of gifts.

At the heart of the story is Gretel. Played by Sophia Lillis, she does a great job of investing you in the characters and the setting. In this telling of the story, Gretel is the older sister who is taking care of Hansel. They are forced on a journey through the woods, in which they inevitably run into the witch. But there is no gingerbread house in this story. It’s a bit more realistic and definitely more creepy. Throw in some great music, and it really immerses you into the story.

Movie Review: ‘The Rhythm Section’

February 5, 2020 at 7:50 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

The Rhythm Section is your classic “train them to be a weapon” trope movie with a woman who finds purpose in revenge after losing everything. It doesn’t really do anything new, but it does do a good job at telling a story.

One thing I really liked about this movie is that it feels very grounded. By that I mean it’s not a Jason Bourne or Mission Impossible movie with over the top action or insane fighting abilities. The people in this movie struggle in a fight and it often results in an on the floor struggle rather than some beautifully choreographed fight. Furthermore, the main character isn’t some star pupil who becomes a super spy ninja assassin. She’s a person who struggles and pushes herself. She’s not great at anything, but she’s willing to try and she puts herself out there. On top of all that, she never blindly falls into belief or gets stuck in a narrow field of focus. Through the entire story, she stays aware and questions things. Is this the right thing to do? Can I trust this person? Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘The Rhythm Section’…
