Logan: Review

Hugh Jackman ends his 17 year stint as Wolverine with bang in this rated R masterpiece of a film.  It’s just too bad that it took this long to see the Wolverine we’ve all been waiting for! Continue reading “Logan: Review”

La La Land: Review

Director Damien Chazelle continues his success after 2014’s Whiplash with another incredible music centered drama starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.  This modern-day musical set in LA is gaining hype and praise, which I can safely say is very well deserved. Continue reading “La La Land: Review”

Captain Fantastic: Review

Viggo Mortensen shines in this Indie film about a father raising his family off of the land and away from society.  This story has plenty of great humor, outlandish adventure, and thought-provoking questions wrapped up in what I can only imagine is every hippie’s dreamworld.

Fences: Review

Doctor Strange: Review

The newest Marvel installation aims to show us the more mystical side of the MCU in this psychedelic action flick, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character.  While this is definitely one of the most inventive of the universe, it still suffers from a few of the same snags that have plagued almost every Marvel film.  Though that doesn’t stop this film from being thoroughly entertaining.

The Accountant: Review

This action crime drama about a math genius with a checkered past and lethal set of skills turned out to be one of the most surprisingly entertaining action flicks of the year.  While the trailers may not have convinced most people on the believability of our main character, Ben Affleck will show you otherwise and shines in one of his best roles yet.
