‘Synchronic’ Movie Review

This sci-fi flick wasn’t worth the time to try and follow the storyline. Don’t waste your money or time. I left a little early.

1/2 star out of 5

‘The Banker’ Movie Review

the banker

Based on a true story of two black men who were quite successful in buying properties. Being finically stable in a segregated Country they overcame poverty. Grooming a white man to front for them in closing deals was going great until this partner became greedy and led to their demise. I’m surprised this movie didn’t have a theatre release in February. This is an Appletv movie and is only in theatres for a limited time.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Movie Review

Endgame

So, I’m a serious #Marvel fan, therefore, I did enjoy the movie and there are many scenes that made me laugh, tear up and clap for all of the Avengers. For the first time, there are NO end credit scenes yet there is an end credit SOUND that must link somehow to the next phase of movies. I have seen it now two times, in IMAX & IMAX 3D; both nice formats. Now, please stop reading because SPOILERS are next:

1. I did NOT like that Nat/Black Widow is I guess, dead? I must research to find out if the character dies in the comic books. I think she may have been snapped back but they don’t know where yet.
2. I was a little surprised that Vision didn’t return in the time travel.
3. Loki is back when the Avengers travel back in time…there’s a scene that he steals a stone and disappears yet he never re-appears…maybe??? So there may be a twist in future movies about that.
4. I was quite surprised that when Thanos travels back in time, he is such a force for the Avengers to fight altogether. Even with Captain Marvel, Captain America with Thor’s hammer, Iron Man and Pepper suited up etc… it was still a losing fight battle against Thanos, smh.
5. I did not like Iron Man dying yet I’ve heard he dies in the comic books.
6. I did not like that Captain America returns back as an old man and gives up his shield to Falcon.
7. I was surprised that the 2 audiences thus far, that I’ve seen it with did not cheer when Falcon got the shield and when Nick Fury was shown at the end (I didn’t notice him when the Avengers returned).
8. Who was the random man standing with the Avengers at Iron Man’s memorial? He’s shown just before the Shield agents, Captain Marvel then Nick.
9. I have to research to find out what the “sound” means at the end of movie. Answer:  the sound is the same from ‘Iron Man 1’ when Tony was building his first suit.
10. I noticed that Gamora was not on the ship with the Guardians when they left yet she did fight with the Avenger ladies in the last fight scene.

‘Miss Bala’ Movie Review

miss bala

I was hoping for a good action flick and I pretty much got that. Somewhat predictable yet a couple of twists make this 3-way bad guy movie engaging with a female lead. I saw the movie in Dolby and it was great.
SPOILER: ended with the setup for a sequel which is unusual when the lead character had no specific training.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Movie Review

Avengers Infinity War pic

I’m a diehard #Marvel fan and this 3rd installment of an Avengers movie did not disappoint. It was great seeing so many of the Marvel characters in one movie…NOT all of them are in the movie though.  Rumor is that the X-Men haven’t been written into the Avengers yet, because help is needed.  The movie is great and I have already seen it twice in IMAX 3-D and Dolby.  I enjoyed both formats.  Shout out to a fave #GOT character, Tyrion/Peter Dinklage with his cameo scene.  Yes, I plan to see it again and probably in a different format, Super E-Max.  There’s only ONE end credit scene.

‘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.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Movie Review

Captain America Civil War banner

I’m a Marvel fan, therefore, this is a winner-winner! I consider this movie an ‘Avengers’ movie because so many of them are in this one and a couple new ones (to the big screen) are introduced. The fight scenes are epic and it’s hard to choose a side. I went in undecided on which team I was on #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan If you’re an ‘Avengers’ fan you’ll love this one. There’s lots of humor. If you can see it in IMAX 3D, I’d recommend it! As usual, don’t leave until the screen goes black…there are two end credit scenes. P.S. I liked the new characters of #BlackPanther and #Spiderman (there independent movies should be great).

‘Triple 9’ Movie Review

Triple 9 banner

I really enjoy this bank heist movie that has a great ensemble cast. My attention was held throughout and I think it is really underrated. The chemistry is great within the cast. There are storyline twists that I didn’t expect. This is a great role for Chiwetel Ejiofor that I enjoyed seeing him in and I hope he takes more roles like this.

‘The Night Before’ Movie Review

Well, if you’re looking for a raunchy and ratchet movie with a Christmas theme, then this is the movie. I laughed yet I didn’t think the ratchetness would be so much. Miley Cyrus’ appearance was a funny surprise.
