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 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…

Movie Trailer: Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

The new-look Spider-Man (Tom Holland) made a big splash in “Captain America: Civil War” and he is sure to do so in his latest rebooted effort, Spider-Man: Homecoming. I say this because Marvel is involved in the production to rub off some of the bad mojo Sony has dripped upon the franchise over the past…

Movie Review: Inferno (2016)

A confusing, convoluted plot, Ron Howard’s uninspired direction and less than stellar acting mar Inferno, the third installment of the popular (at least as far as book sales go) “Da Vinci Code” franchise, but then again, we all know about some of the third-film duds in cinematic history (“Superman 3,” “Rocky 3,” “The Hangover Part…

Movie Review: The Magnificent Seven (2016)

Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven is set in a world where even having a drink requires vigilance. The film opens with Bartholomew Bogue’s (Peter Sarsgaard, “Black Mass”) hostile takeover of Rose Creek, a small mining community. This results in the deaths of countless settlers — most notably Matthew Cullen (Matt Bomer, “The Nice Guys”), whose…

Movie Review: Sausage Party (2016)

Like an American sprinter against Usain Bolt, Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party starts off quickly (and humorously), but it fails to win the gold medal due to the actor/writer’s problem of not knowing when to reel in the bizarre comic situations (a trait perhaps caused by his close association with pal Adam Sandler) and not push…
