‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ Movie Review

Male cover

It took a few years but the sequel to the hugely popular dark fairytale returns. This film is PG, I’m sure, to get younger viewers. The movies starts “dark” and lightens up yet there are enough scenes to probably still scare younger children. I viewed it in IMAX and it was great.

‘Teen Spirit’ Movie Review

Teen Spirit

A teen sets out on her journey to become a pop sensation by competing in a television voting show.  Good singing yet a slow storyline.

‘Leap’ Movie Review

If you have a future ballerina in your home, then this is a must see animated film.  The premise is about two orphans who are finding their purpose in life and dance is the dream for one of them.  Nice family movie.

‘The Beguiled’ Movie Review

The Beguiled banner

When you get a house full of catty women some of which some who may have never touched a man, then know problems are coming. The storyline intention is good yet it could have been way more intense and dramatic….to make it a good movie like the promos made it seem.

’20th Century Women’ Movie Review

20th-centhury-women-banner

This movie is a sort of coming of age movie for two of the women and a conversation about life ensues amongst all the characters. The actors have great chemistry. This movie could end up with Oscar noms. A little slow yet an okay movie.

‘Live By Night’ Movie Review

Ben Affleck has a hand in almost everything related to this movie and it’s not a bad thing. The era and premise (A group of Boston-bred gangsters set up shop in balmy Florida during the Prohibition era, facing off against the completion and the Klu Klux Klan) of the movie are favorites of mine (there’s a mention of Detroit as well) yet I found this movie a bit slow and I was waiting for the bang-bang scenes to keep my interest. It’s not a bad movie but I did expect more.

‘The Neon Demon’ Movie Review

The Neon

This is a really different and wacky movie that stayed a little too dark for me so I only watched about 2/3 of the movie before leaving. What I did watch, I didn’t enjoy.

‘Trumbo’ Movie Review

trumbo banner

This movie is based on a true story and book of the same name. Essentially, one of the best screenwriters in history (and other artists) was jailed for their political views. Mr. Trumbo was an interesting person to say the least; after being black balled in Hollywood he had to write scripts using shadow writer names. I did like this movie and I won’t be surprised hearing about a few Oscar nominations from this stellar ensemble cast.

‘Maleficent’ Movie Review

Male banner 2

This is a “dark” spin on the fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty. Overall, I did like the movie and the 3D (good and probably enjoyable in 2D as well). I wouldn’t encourage parents to take young children or children not exposed to dark magic/evil genre movies. Disney has once again done a good job portraying a fairy tale on the big screen. Angelina owns the character, Maleficent, as does Elle Fanning as, Aurora/Beastie. This is the first time I’ve seen a movie version of Sleeping Beauty….stay tuned to see if the fairy tale ends as we know it to be. Cute cameo of Angelina’s baby girl Vivienne.
