‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Movie Review

TRansformers 4 banner BB

After a hiatus to re-boot the franchise my faves are back on the big screen. I’m a big time Transformers movie fan and as long as Bumble Bee, Optimus Prime and the other Autobots are present I’m all smiles. I did enjoy the 3D (worth paying for) and thought the clarity of all the action figures was really good. If you’re a fan, you’ll enjoy the film. However, do know the movie is 2 hrs. and 46 minutes and I did notice about 2 hours in that it seemed a bit long only because I didn’t think the new characters connected and/or meshed with the Autobots as they did in the first 3 films. I did miss seeing the Witwicky family and all their humor along with Tyrese G. and Josh D. The 3 former films had better storylines and character development. I am a Mark Wahlberg fan yet I didn’t think he gelled well…maybe just not in this film. We’ll see what happens as the franchise continues. Great seeing #Detroit “transformed” into China, lol (footage towards end of film). I did have to get used to “hearing” Bumble Bee, lol.

4.5 stars out of 5 (generous fan rating; maybe only deserves 4 stars)

‘The Rover’ Movie Review

The Rover

What a dark movie from the beginning to the end, literally! I did appreciate seeing a different acting side of Robert Pattinson. He totally lost his accent to depict a southern red neck accent (no offense intended) although the characters are in the Australian outback. The storyline is a bit slow and not deep; basically about a soldier getting revenge. There are several gory scenes.

‘Jersey Boys’ Movie Review

Jersey Boys

Before this movie I didn’t know the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. I enjoyed learning their journey and how Frankie became a legendary solo artist. The music I’m familiar with didn’t start till almost an hour into the movie yet I enjoyed it all. I did learn that four of three actors in the group are the performers from the Broadway musical (one is an actor from the cable series Boardwalk Empire, Tommy (character). I totally enjoyed the shout out/performance in Detroit at The Roostertail! None of the acting was superior yet the storyline held my attention. There’s some sidebar narrating that a couple of the characters do…you’ll either like it or not, lol.

‘Think Like a Man Too’ Movie Review

think like a man too banner

Here’s a Summer sequel that’s hot! I so enjoyed the continuation of the characters of this movie. Lots more jokes that the original film that is depicted from Steve Harvey’s book’ “Act Like A Lady – Think Like A Man”. All of the actors are back to show us how their relationships have developed. There’s a sort of music video that the girls perform to the old school song “Poison” by BBD (Bell, Biv, DeVoe) that is very funny! NOTE: There’s an end credit scene…WAIT TILL THE SCREEN GOES BLACK. I understand there’s a soundtrack that primarily features Mary J. Blige (I loved the soundtrack from the first film).

4 stars out 5
PG 13 106 min – Comedy

‘Words and Pictures’ Movie Review

Words and pictures banner

Great acting from Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche. The movie is slow which is always usually to build the characters interaction. Here are two people with already complicated lives individually that come together and find that one of their issues causes them to abruptly disconnect. The play on words vs. pictures is something to contemplate. If you’re in the Metro Detroit area, catch this film at the Maple Art Theater in Bloomfield, MI The building newly renovated with new seats in each theater, new concession stand, cafĂ© for food and drinks. Here’s their website: http://themapletheater.com/

’22 Jump Street’ Movie Review

22 Jumpstreet

I’m not saying ’22 Jump Street’ is a bad movie and I’m not saying it’s not a good movie either. Mind you there are funny scenes and for the most part it held my attention yet it isn’t as good/funny as the first one. The movie pokes fun at itself and there’s an unexpected reveal that I didn’t expect that is funny. Overall, it’s just ok. I would have appreciated more original television series cameos.

‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ Movie Review

How To Train your Drgaon 2 New banner

Here’s a sequel that’s as good as the original. Our favorite animated Vikings are back on the big screen after a 4 year wait. Everything about this film is great….storyline, humor, colors, 3D! Even if you haven’t seen the first film, you will still enjoy this film. Be prepared for a character’s storyline to change. This is definitely a film for all to enjoy!
