Movie Review: Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

The unique selling point of superhero cinema is the presentation of superpowers on screen and the exploration of what it means to super and to be a hero. Ever since “X-Men” took advantage of digital effects technology to render eye beams and human-generated lightning bolts, the finest examples of superhero cinema have grabbed hold of…

Movie Review: Pete’s Dragon (2016)

“Original” would seem the last word one should use to describe a current kids’ movie about the friendship between a boy and his dragon that is both a remake and a sort of “E.T.” clone, but it is what it is. As Disney is knee-deep in pillaging their catalog of classics for profits, they’ve managed…

Movie Review: Star Trek Beyond (2016)

The third part of the “Star Trek” series reboot, Star Trek Beyond, does not reach the heights of other film franchises such as “Harry Potter,” “The Dark Knight” or “The Hunger Games,” but it is certainly better than the second installment, “Star Trek Into Darkness,” so thank goodness for small victories . . .

As the acting Captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise, Hikaru Sulu (John Cho, “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas”) barked orders at an incorrigible outlaw of the Federation, John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch, “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), chills ran down my spine, and I sat in awe of the radiant visual effects. But that was no…

Movie Trailer: Riddick (2013)

I doubt anyone would have imagined when “Pitch Black” came out 13 years ago that its anti-hero, Riddick, would develop a rabid following and spawn a sequel. Well he did and today the trailer for the his third installment, aptly titled Riddick, has come online. Again mercenaries are out to collect on his bounty and…
