Movie Review: The Fate of the Furious (2017)

While a great deal of uninformed critics seem to be falling all over themselves about The Fate of the Furious (the Rotten Tomatoes website actually states, “The Fate of the Furious opens a new chapter in the franchise, fueled by the same infectious cast chemistry and over-the-top action fans have come to expect.”), the eighth…

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 Review: Goosebumps (2015)

If there was ever a case of “too little, too late,” it would be Goosebumps, released by Sony Pictures Entertainment under its Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation labels. And, not unlike “The Simpsons Movie” in 2007, this picture should have come out at least 15 years earlier. “Carpe diem” or “strike when the iron…

Movie Review: Furious 7 (2015)

It’s more than a little strange to get suddenly swept up in the events of a series for the first time while watching the seventh installment, but that’s what happened with Furious 7, a gloriously bonkers and awesomely ambitious entry in a franchise that previously always seemed to come up a bit short. It’s clear…

Movie Trailer: Furious 7 (2015)

“One last job,” Dominic Toretto says in this first trailer Furious 7. And because of the death of series lynchpin Paul Walker late last year, I believe him. Even though in each iteration they do manage to dream up an impressive stunt or two and show off some amazing cars, the series has gone on…

Movie Review: Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

There are two utterly useless facts I learned during my viewing of Fast & Furious 6. One, even in the tiniest of roles, the lack of perceivable acting talent in Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster’s bones can ruin a film, even one as poorly conceived as this. It is this franchise, and this franchise alone,…

Movie Review: Dead Man Down (2013)

With more than a passing nod to revenge action films like “The Driver” and “Shooter,” director Niels Arden Oplev (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” original 2009 Swedish-language version) has certainly crafted a gloomy, gritty, violent crime thriller, with some spot-on acting performances, but with a confusing, convoluted plot and a filmed at a deliberate…
