  • Logan – Saving The Best For Last?

    If Jackman really means it and this is THE last time he will ever portray Wolverine, he has picked a perfect way to go out on top. Set in the near future (2029 to be exact), our beloved X-Men hero, Logan (Hugh Jackman), is one of the last remaining mutants on the planet.  They have been hunted down and poisoned into extinction, and Logan is growing weary of a life full of violence and loss, especially as his powers weaken.

    That creepy, crawly girl with the split ends is climbing out of the well again, which is kind of a metaphor for how Hollywood does business these days.  They keep going to the well.

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Embrace The Hype – Review

    Early on, I had a bad feeling about this, but hope saw me through to a solid movie with a thrilling ending. Felicity Jones stars as Jyn Erso – a young lady whose father, Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen), was a brilliant scientist forced by the Empire to design plans for a humongous weapon of mass destruction (the one we call The Death Star). The Rebellion has a vague understanding this weapon could give The Empire unmatched power to rule the […]

  • Office Christmas Party – Someone Forgot to Spike the Eggnog – Review

    I know you think this might be a documentary about your company’s annual holiday party, but Office Christmas Party falls short of your wildest dreams and desires, much like most parties do. Jason Bateman stars as Josh – the Chief Technical Officer for a data storage company full of bitter, lackadaisical employees.  The new CEO, Carol (Jennifer Aniston), inherited the place from her father, and she has been running roughshod over everything and anything he created. Now, she is demanding […]
