‘Daddy’s Home 2’ Movie Review

Daddys Home 2 banner

Here’s the sequel to the blockbuster ‘Daddy’s Home’.  I think sequels have so much pressure on them and I still feel the same way.  The jokes weren’t as funny and fluent to me.  Some scenes are unrealistic yet I did laugh.  The movie lover in me enjoyed the theatre scene towards the end of the movie.  There’s an end credit scene yet it’s not anything worth staying for (I just happened to still be sitting there).

‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Movie Review

Transformers 5 banner.jpg

This is another franchise that I’m a BIG fan of so for the most part the director can do no wrong.  What I enjoyed most is that the franchise brought back familiar faces (and a last name) from the first three films (not Tyrese though, which I missed and the newcomer love interest for Mark Wahlberg is a dead ringer for Megan Fox). Lots of action and humor.  I saw it in Dolby and it was great!  My next viewing will be in IMAX 3D. And YES, there is an end credit scene not long after the movie ends (nothing when the screen goes black).

‘Patriots Day’ Movie Review

Of course based (closely) on the true story, this movie is to say the least, a wonderfully acted movie that bring you to tears and have you applauding after the movie (and maybe during). Be prepared for very gory scenes. There’s a riveting scene by actress, Khandi Alexander, portraying an interrogator (award worthy to me; she’s also mama Pope on #Scandal).

‘Deepwater Horizon’ Movie Review

deepwater-horizon

Based on the true story of the offshore drilling rig Deepwater Horizon, which exploded April 2010 and created the worst oil spill in U.S. history. A well written script and screenplay led to this being a great movie on the big screen. I was on the edge of my seat during a few scenes. See it in IMAX if you can.

Not being a Will Ferrell fan I was pleasantly surprised that his comedic acting along with Mark Wahlberg meshed together well. Laugh out loud comedy throughout!

‘Ted 2’ Movie Review

The raunchy teddy bear, Ted is back on the big screen. I found the movie to be funny when it was funny yet there aren’t as many funny moments/scenes in the sequel. That doesn’t mean is not as funny as the original yet just fewer laughable scenes. A little too much time spent on equality for this teddy bear. If there’s a third film, they should keep to the jokes. Ted still has a bad mouth, lol. I laughed out loud a lot and it was funny to see the charater, Donny again in this film.

‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Movie Review

TRansformers 4 banner BB

After a hiatus to re-boot the franchise my faves are back on the big screen. I’m a big time Transformers movie fan and as long as Bumble Bee, Optimus Prime and the other Autobots are present I’m all smiles. I did enjoy the 3D (worth paying for) and thought the clarity of all the action figures was really good. If you’re a fan, you’ll enjoy the film. However, do know the movie is 2 hrs. and 46 minutes and I did notice about 2 hours in that it seemed a bit long only because I didn’t think the new characters connected and/or meshed with the Autobots as they did in the first 3 films. I did miss seeing the Witwicky family and all their humor along with Tyrese G. and Josh D. The 3 former films had better storylines and character development. I am a Mark Wahlberg fan yet I didn’t think he gelled well…maybe just not in this film. We’ll see what happens as the franchise continues. Great seeing #Detroit “transformed” into China, lol (footage towards end of film). I did have to get used to “hearing” Bumble Bee, lol.

4.5 stars out of 5 (generous fan rating; maybe only deserves 4 stars)
