‘Dark Phoenix’ Movie Review

Dark Phoe

Now, as a stand alone film, I enjoyed it, except that one character is killed off and it doesn’t make sense since the earlier X-Men films aged the characters (of, course that’s how Fox Studios messed up everything Marvel).  There’s lots of action with a storyline that’s engaging enough.  NO end credit scenes (because it wasn’t in the Marvel/Disney family yet when it was filmed).  Now that Disney has this franchise, I see everything getting better and hopefully merging with everything else Marvel.  The August 2019 release of The Mutants is the last of these characters until again, Disney merges them.  I saw it in Dolby and it was great.

‘Red Sparrow’ Movie Review

Red Sparrow banner

This sparrow is about sexual seduction…literally, just like Snoop Doggs song, lol. There’s intrigue and gory fight scenes that hold your attention. I prefer Jennifer in her franchise movies and I’m not sure if this will become one.

‘Mother!’ Movie Review

Mother banner

Although one of the genres is horror, believe me, this is only a horror of a movie. The storyline makes no sense and it’s not scary. I thought maybe Jennifer’s character had an issue about going outside after a horrific incident…but no sense was ever made. A waste of the talent in this movie. Don’t waste your money or time.

‘Passengers’ Movie Review

passengers-banner

Other than ‘Star Trek’ & ‘Star Wars’ (off the top of my head) this is my favorite sci-fi film of the year (although not labeled as sci-fi). Finally, a good sci-fi flick that I could relate to and end up enjoying (I think ‘Arrival’ is totally overrated). There’s of course a love story and that sealed the deal for me. It was a surprise to see the third human passenger, lol. I saw it in Real D 3D and enjoyed it.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Movie Review

Xmen a banner 2

This is pretty much another Marvel superhero movie…that’s fine because I give it a thumbs up! It’s a little long because the first hour builds up the storyline. Some familiar faces and new faces as the X-Men…it’s always fun to see the characters younger (of course, one fave makes a cameo at his current age). I saw it in RealD 3D and it was pretty good. Don’t forget…stay until the screen turns BLACK…there’s an end credit scene (which I really didn’t get or like, lol). Sophie Turner does a great job as a young Jean (I’m always happy to see #GOT actors on the big screen).

An exploration of Earth and beyond as seen from the International Space Station. Narrated by Jennifer Lawrence. It’s a beautiful movie experience in IMAX 3D which is the format I saw it in. Only 45 minutes long…enjoy!

‘Joy’ Movie Review

Joy movie

This movie is loosely based on Joy Mangano who invented the miracle mop. Jennifer Lawrence in my opinion gives her best on screen performance portraying this single mom’s journey to build a sound life for her children and family. This is one of two movies that Édgar Ramírez stars in this Christmas weekend (‘Point Break’ the other). The soap opera scenes are chocked full of real soap stars that I recognized.

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’ Movie Review

Hunger Games MJ 2 banner pic

The final installment is in theatres now and Mockingjay 2 didn’t disappoint. I was truly bored with M.J. 1 and had hoped for a better movie to end this franchise. I didn’t read the books but I’ve seen all of the movies. There’s some great action scenes and the storyline returned to what I have enjoyed minus M.J. 1. IMAX is always great and I really enjoyed it in that format. Once again, I enjoyed seeing another #GOT actor on the big screen, Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth). My fave of the franchise was the second movie, ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’.

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’

Hunger Games MJ 2 banner

Straight to the point, I’m hoping Mockingjay Pt. 2 is MUCH better. The plot is slow and there’s not enough action scenes to hold your attention (well, mine anyway). A little humor along the way to try and bring you in. Having not read any of the books, it’s obvious pt. 1 is setting up pt. 2 and let’s hope it revives this franchise. It was good seeing another “Game of Thrones” cast member on the big screen…Natalie Dormer.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Movie Review

XMen

NOTE: AS WITH “ALL” MARVEL MOVIES – DON’T FORGET TO WAIT UNTIL THE END CREDIT SCENE RUNS AT THE END OF ALL THE CREDITS….WAIT UNTIL THE SCREEN TURNS BLACK.

Ok, I could have used a total X-Men movie refresher to understand and keep up with this movie. I had forgotten a lot of the characters. If you’re a diehard X-men fan, you’ll enjoy seeing most if not all characters in one movie, lol. I did really enjoy the storyline and the nostalgic look back to the 1970’s. There’s humor amongst the characters and lots of action. I did see the film in 3D and I enjoyed it. Not a lot of the movie is in 3D but when it kicks in it’s worth it. I think this film definitely fits into the Summer popcorn movie guide. Enjoy! Another well done #Marvel film.
