‘Detroit’ Movie Review

Detroit movie banner

INTENSE and it’s a hard movie to refer people to go and see.  Based on true accounts from the 1967 riot in Detroit this movie focuses on the murders of three young men at the Algier’s motel.  Is the movie totally factual?  No.  I had a quick conversation with  a relative of Fred Temple’s and the movie does not tell the story of what actually happened and I noticed a couple things that didn’t tie in well.  What’s important about this movie is that it depicts a big part of history that I wasn’t as aware of as I thought.  I was sad, angry and drained all at the same time.  The worst thing about the movie is that the same senseless murders by police officers are still happening in 2017 and even with modern technology from cell phone videos etc… bad cops are still getting away with murder.  Not all cops are bad cops…I know of good ones.  I believe there will be Oscar nominations as this movie had stellar performances.

‘Baby Driver’ Movie Review

I didn’t expect to like this movie as there was a similar movie released not long ago (and it was horrible). This movie has heart in the development of the lead character, Baby. There’s fast driving that leaves you thinking, how did they get away? Some scenes are not realistic but this is a movie.  It held my attention the entire time.

‘Free Fire’ Movie Review

Free Fire movie

This is an old-school shoot-em-up bang-bang movie, LOL. Lots of bullets and swearing. The shoot out becomes so ridiculously funny that it’s hard to believe anyone will survive. It’s a quick movie most of it is this funny yet gory shooting scene.

‘The Fate of the Furious’ Movie Review

F8 banner

I’m a really big fan of this franchise so my reviews are usually favorable as is this one. Yes, I totally enjoyed this film and the Fast franchise should definitely continue. There was a rousing applause when two favorites of this franchise returned…I was so happy to see them. Good storyline; and lots of fast action. I saw it in IMAX and it was great! NO end credit scene. Another #GameOfThrones cast member is in this film.

‘Going In Style’ Movie Review

The headlining ensemble cast are familiar faces and have good chemistry in this light-hearted comedy adventure of sorts. The storyline is somewhat predictable yet it’s worth checking out.

‘Chips’ Movie Review

Chips movie

Inspired by the 1970’s television series this movie turns the popular show and characters into a racy comedy. One of the original characters is furious about the raunchy comedy movie yet one character makes a cameo appearance. This movie appeals to the male demographic; the movie is okay with some laughs.

‘Sleepless’ Movie Review

sleepless-banner

I had no expectations of enjoying this movie (yet high hopes) despite the ensemble cast of a few of my favorites because of lack of big budget advertising and advance critic screenings.  Well, I really enjoyed this fast paced bad-cop good-cop with a few bad guys movie, lol.  The storyline is simple enough and there a few twists so it’s not so predictable.  Definitely worth checking out.
