‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Movie Review

FB2 banner

Yes, I saw all of the ‘Harry Potter’ movies but didn’t read any of the books…yes, I enjoyed the movies for the most part. This series of spin-off movies is different. The first Fantastic Beasts was just okay yet this one is more Harry Potter-esque, yet I was lost with all of the characters and storyline. I did view it in IMAX and it was great.

‘Sherlock Gnomes’ Movie Review

The trailers had been so cute so I was looking forward to this movie. All of the best scenes unfortunately were in the trailers. I found few laughs and cuteness in this movie.

‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Movie Review

Murder on the Orient Express banner

I will say that this movie is better than I thought it would be.  It’s not a thriller and probably could have been better considering the great ensemble cast yet I was engaged the entire movie.  The “who done it” was twisty till the end yet I wanted a more intense lead up to the reveal.

‘ Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Movie Review

Pirates 2017

Everything that fans of this franchise were waiting on, is delivered in this fifth edition.  There’s a storyline to follow with ALL the fantastic picturesque backdrops and characters!  Disney spared no expense in making everything that wasn’t real look real.  The IMAX 3D experience was fabulous.  Yes, there is an end credit scene giving a plot to the next film that I’m sure will happen in hopefully just a couple of years.

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Movie Review

fantastic-beasts-banner

Harry Potter fans can see how his journey began 70 years before he read his first book. Although this is a pre-quell to the Potter books and movies the special effects are of course much more dynamic and this will excite fans. I thought more was needed in the storyline as new characters were introduced. There’s a quick pic cameo of Zoe Kravitz but no scene; Johnny Depp has a quick scene. My comparison of Harry Potter and Newt is that, Harry led his movies better…hopefully this series will get better as J. K. Rowlings depend on her to dazzle on the big screen. Well, I guess everyone has to wait until the part 2 arrives in 2018 (there will be five movies). I saw it in IMAX and it was great; I may try and catch it in 3D and Dolby if I can find it.

‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Movie Review

Alice through the looking glass banner

Here’s the 2nd installment in this franchise and much like the first movie it was entertaining and overall I liked it. I think this one is even more visually lush on the screen (IMAX 3D). All of the favorite and not so favorite characters are back to give us a whimsical journey.

‘Black Mass’ Movie Review

Black Mass banner

This movie is based on a true story and I found the story to be intriguing. Wow, what an almost unreal thought process to the goings-on of the characters. It’s amazing that Whitey was able to do what he did for as long as he did and elude law enforcement. He was captured in 2011 on an anonymous tip. Brace yourself for lots of violent crime.

‘Into The Woods’ Movie Review

Into The Woods banner

I found this musical fairy tale of sorts to be funny and entertaining (the singing is not so good to me other than from those I know who can sing). This musical is a bit dark and not for children in my opinion yet it is being marketed towards children. Overall, a good cast…not a must see but if you want a laugh, check it out.

‘Transcendence’ Movie Review

transcendence

I’m a true sci-fi fan yet found myself never being engaged in this film. Johnny Depp is known for portraying corky characters and this character fits that category yet it’s his worst one. I found the storyline to loosely remind me of ‘Her’ which I didn’t like as well. The concept of the storyline is thought provoking on the “what ifs” yet the movie just didn’t connect in my opinion.

‘The Lone Ranger’ Movie Review

lr 12
The Long Ranger should be getting all the spotlight yet Tonto and Silver made the spotlight shine three ways. I think most people will find this movie to be quite nostalgic if you have ever watched any of the original television episodes (whether you remember most of them or not). There’s plenty of action and comedy (Johnny Depp does his thing as Tonto) and a storyline to follow. There are a few scenes that will make you cringe yet overall it’s a great Summer time popcorn movie. I have heard there is a really short end credit scene (I missed it)…so stick around after the movie ends.
