‘Pixels’ Movie Review

Pixels banner

 

I was pleasantly surprised that I liked this animated/real life film. I of course loved those old school arcade games yet I didn’t know how this film would pull it together to be likeable (I did like ‘Wreck it Ralph’ but it is a total animated film). The humor of the main characters is great. This is a fun Summertime popcorn movie. I saw it in 3D and it was pretty good. P.S. another one of my fave actors from Game of Thrones is in this one, Peter Dinklage.

‘Paper Towns’ Movie Review

Paper towns banner 2

This is a coming of age of sorts movie…well at least for the main character, Quentin (Nat Wolff known for last Summers big hit ‘The Faults in Our Stars’). A small gang of friends set off to find Quentin’s mysterious love of his life (thus far anyways) Margo (Cara Delevingne who is a model and in a bit hot water over a bad attitude interview with a Fox affiliate). There are laughs yet I thought it could have been better. Teenagers may find it more appealing.

‘Vacation’ Movie Review

I didn’t have high expectations for this one based on advance screener statements. Well, I liked it and found myself laughing out loud a few times. Yes, the movie is full of gross humor and inappropriate scenes…that’s what the Griswolds’ do, right? I was surprised to see a fave actress of mine in short scene, Regina Hall.

‘Southpaw’ Movie Review

southpaw

This is a great film! Lots of drama through violence, wrestling and love. Oona Laurence portrays the daughter of the main characters and she gives a riveting performance. The acting in this film is Oscar worthy (I don’t know why it didn’t come out later in the year when those are usually the films that get more Oscar attention). Great performances from Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker. A little slow to some in a couple of spots but not to me.  Detroit’s own Eminem is on the soundtrack for the movie.

4.5 stars out of 5

‘Ant-Man’ Movie Review

Who doesn’t know that I’m a big #Marvel fan? Well, I am and ‘Ant-Man’ passes the test as well, lol. This is probably the most “comic bookey” movie of this franchise…by that, I mean it’s corky funny and will definitely appeal to the youngest of fans. I saw it in IMAX 3D and it was fabulous. I was so excited to see Falcon of the Avengers have a cameo in this film! Don’t forget, as usual, there are TWO end of movie credit scenes (stay till the screen turns black…there’s another Avenger in the final credit scene). Of course, this was the #1 movie in the U.S. in it’s opening weekend.

‘Trainwreck’ Movie Review

Trainwreck banner

Is this movie funny? Yes, I laughed out loud a few times. I think Amy Schumer will have a great run of funny movies. Lebron James portrays himself and is quite funny. The chemistry between the characters is good. Now, my only problem (if it’s a problem) is that I thought there were too many simulated sex scenes. Yes, it’s rated R but still, lol. It is the #3 movie in the U.S. now.

3 stars out of 5 (would have been 3.5 if not for the sex scenes)

‘Mr. Holmes’ Movie Review

Here’s a Summertime movie to escape the heat and relax in a slow moving yet typical Sherlock Holmes format. No big action scenes yet a storyline or two to follow with humor and a bit of mystery. Not bad; great for a family viewing.

2.5 stars out of 5
