‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ Movie Review

Our Brand banner

This is a movie with humor that makes you think about how politics work for the best and mostly for the worst. As a whole, I usually don’t like movies that George Clooney is a producer on and this one is no different. The movie is somewhat slow but shows the behind the scenes of a candidates run for office. Be prepared for LOTS of sub-titles.

‘Burnt’ Movie Review

Burnt banner pics

Based on a true story this movie is about an accomplished chef in Europe who destroys his career because of substance abuse and his ego. The movie has sub-titles but not too many. Don’t go into the theatre hungry, you will develop an appetite. I found the storyline just okay yet it did hold my attention (I saw ‘Chef’ and I liked it better than this one).

‘Jem and the Holograms’ Movie Review

Jem banner

I wasn’t a fan of the animated television show yet I thought I’d give the movie a chance. Well, the movie is horrible and not worth your time. I was disappointed on how the movie didn’t remind me at all of the television show. Die hard Jems’ fans will be disappointed. The music is decent and will get you through if you don’t walk out. The demographic is surely for girls up to maybe fifteen. I was surprised to see three well known actor/celebrity cameos in the movie: Dwayne Johnson, Chris Pratt and Alicia Keys (how’d they get them???, lol).

‘Steve Jobs’ Movie Review

Steve Jobs banner

This is a hard quick read movie review after doing some research on Mr. Jobs. I will say this film is well acted. Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet give great performances (maybe Oscar worthy). Not knowing much about Steve Jobs personal life was an interesting pull to the storyline. There’s lots of computer jargon that could go over your head. The storyline revolves around three of Jobs’ well known product launch unveilings. Unfortunately, the movie isn’t dated to more recent product developments (iphone, ipad etc…). I did find this man’s life to be interesting and worth learning more about. This film is depicted from a book by Walter Issacson (Jobs’ person biographer) yet Jobs’ wife/family do not give a seal of approval of this film and actually contacted a couple of actors and asked them to not accept the role. Since this is the 2nd film about Jobs’ in the last couple of years I’m sure that one day his family will finally approve a depiction/storyline that they want on the big screen.

‘The Last Witch Hunter’ Movie Review

The last Hunter

I’m a big Vin Diesel fan so I was in hopes that he had another winner-winner franchise on the horizon, NOT. The storyline is whack and the only thing you’re watching the screen for is the action scenes which are decent. I doubt a sequel will arise unless there’s a reboot of the behind the scenes staff. Another #GameOfThrones star makes her big screen debut, Rose Leslie (Ygritte/Red/Wildling). This is not a must-see Vin Diesel movie.

‘Goosebumps’ Movie Review

Goosebumps banner

Not being a follower of the “Goosebumps” books, I was pleasantly surprised to be pulled in as a fan of the movie. Lots of fun and humor; for the young at heart. I think fans of the books will be pleased. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see it in Real D 3-D (which I think is even more fun) but I really enjoy it. It kinda reminded me of ‘Jumanji’ and ‘Night at the Museum’.

‘Bridge of Spies’ Movie Review

Bridge of Spies banner

Based on a true story, here’s a compelling story of an American lawyer who ends up negotiating the final arrangements of a hostage transfer two-for-one….one Russian for two Americans. Tom Hanks portrays the American lawyer who is recruited by the CIA during the Cold War. The movie is long…a little slow and some accents are think yet the storyline held my attention.
