‘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.

‘Kong Skull Island’ Movie Review

Aren’t most King Kong movies cheesy? Well, so is this one but it’s full of action, scary scenes and laughs. I really enjoyed this re-boot of a classic monster. There’s a great end-of-credits scene!!! So, don’t leave until the screen is totally black. I saw it in IMAX-3D and it was great!

I’ve heard both sides regarding the negative hype about this film then I decided to see this movie. Overall, this is a feel-good family movie and if you’re a pet lover (especially dogs), then you will LOVE this movie.

‘The Finest Hours’ Movie Review

The Finest Hours banner

This movie is based on a true story that actually happened in Cape Cod in 1952. It’s really hard to imagine being in such a storm at sea and actually surviving. The movie is slow yet there are a few visually stunning scenes to watch (I saw it in 3D; no IMAX at the theatre I went to due to ‘Star Wars’ still making a lot of money). I thought the acting by particularly, Chris Pine and overall the entire cast could have been better yet overall the movie was okay.

‘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.
