Movie Review: Life (2017)

From the premise that all extra-terrestrial life is harmful comes Life, a combination of “Alien,” “The Thing,” “Gravity,” “The Mummy” and a few other trapped-in-space or alien-assimilation movies that we all know and love (or tolerate in some cases). Life is the story of the six-member crew of the International Space Station who, while orbiting…

Movie Trailer #2: Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

The second official trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming has landed and while it still doesn’t spoil any plot points, it does offer up more of a taste of the action to come. Peter Parker (Tom Holland), still coming to terms with his place in the superhero hierarchy, tiptoes between doing what he feels he has to…

Movie Trailer #2: Justice League (2017)

With Justice League, DC’s answer to The Avengers is finally here. Whether it’s too late to dethrone Marvel is up for debate, but the liveliness of this second trailer (first “official,” however) is at least a step in the right direction. There is still no definitive plot to spoil as of yet, but along with…

Movie Review: Kong: Skull Island (2017)

Prior to Kong: Skull Island, there have been at least a half dozen feature films based on the monstrous King Kong character, including the original 1933 classic, 1962’s campy “King Kong vs. Godzilla,” the Dino De Laurentiis 1976 budget-breaker and Peter Jackson’s overlong and ambitious 2005 edition, among others. Despite the various incarnations, the plot…

Movie Review: Logan (2017)

For those thinking that Hugh Jackman’s final exit from the Wolverine character would be nothing but an exercise in the same origins story told twice before (and fairly poorly, I might add), prepare to be pleasantly surprised with Logan. This departure from the regular superhero comic book (okay, graphic novel, if you will) adaptation takes…

Movie Review: The Space Between Us (2017)

Somehow Hollywood continues to search for different outlets to convey young love at the box office. Sure, the goal is always the same in terms of tapping into the youth market by promoting yet another transparent teen weepie, but this time with The Space Between Us it’s among the stars. Hey, youngsters need catering at…

Movie Review: Passengers (2016)

Passengers, the newest Sony Pictures (Village Roadshow) release, directed by Morten Tyldum (“The Imitation Game”), is a visually stunning outer space adventure with a very good cast (Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen, Andy Garcia and Laurence Fishburne) that fails to lift off due to an earth-bound, cliché-ridden script. That last item can be blamed…
