Review: THE HITMAN’S WIFE’S BODYGUARD Thrives In Ridiculous Action

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is just as ridiculous as its predecessor and more convoluted. The star power is enough to warrant laughter thanks to the chemistry between the film’s leads, but it doesn’t excuse its underwhelming story. The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard could be considered more fun than the original and that’s mostly due to the… Continue reading Review: THE HITMAN’S WIFE’S BODYGUARD Thrives In Ridiculous Action

Review: THE CONJURING 3 Summons Refreshing But Anticlimactic Entry

(L-r) VERA FARMIGA as Lorraine Warren and PATRICK WILSON as Ed Warren in New Line Cinema’s horror film “THE CONJURING: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT,�� a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It proves Ed and Lorraine Warren can make up for an uneven new chapter in this universe. The eighth entry in The Conjuring Universe decently abandons the haunted house formula but forgets to build on any characters that aren’t our paranormal investigators. Lacking the earned scares the previous… Continue reading Review: THE CONJURING 3 Summons Refreshing But Anticlimactic Entry

Review: SPIRIT UNTAMED Struggles To Ride Into The Sunset

Review: CRUELLA Delivers Stylish Character Study On Iconic Villain

Emma Stone as Cruella in Disney’s live-action CRUELLA.

Disney’s Cruella showcases a devilishly good time filled with over-the-top antics and phenomenal performances by its two leads. Admittedly, the film didn’t seem like it would offer much based on the trailers, but Cruella is a live-action adaptation Disney should be proud of. It’s clever, risky, features a fitting punk rock backdrop, and provides enough humor to lighten the… Continue reading Review: CRUELLA Delivers Stylish Character Study On Iconic Villain

Review: THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD Is A Thrilling Adventure

Those Who Wish Me Dead delivers a heartfelt story packed with tons of great action. It’s an effective throwback to older action films but does feel slightly unfocused at times with its narrative.

THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER – The Star-Spangled Man | TV Review
