Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie is one of the classic books that everyone is supposed to read…editors note, I never got past the third chapter. And the bore I discovered in those pages, transferred right on over to the big screen. Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) can spot what’s wrong from a mile …

As we prepare to enter May, it’s time to look ahead to the best movies to expect this summer!! (Or at least the ones I’m most interested in) Deadpool 2 – May 18 Deadpool changed the Marvel world, by allowing the movies to be R-Rated and dirty and still raking in millions of $$. This …

The music is there from the moment it starts, kind of like how La La Land did, and young PT Barnum clearly always wanted to be entertaining. Growing up in poverty, wanting the love of a rich girl who he just couldn’t have, and when PT (Hugh Jackman) grew up he came back and swept her …

From a young age Ferdinand wasn’t like the other bulls…while they were all headbutting with their freshly grown horns, …

The latest (and last?) Pitch Perfect movie is an entertaining watch, but definitely not the best of the trilogy. The music, as always, is on-point, with a great variety of songs, and they do most of them justice. But they forced a riff-off into this movie, and while it did add musical instruments to the …

The trio behind Workaholics (Adam DeVine, Blake Anderson and Anders Holm) have made a Netflix movie, that is basically Die Hard: With a Dirty Vengeance. Our three characters are housekeepers in a hotel, and terrible at their jobs, but they want to do more, and they may get their opportunity when their crazy perverted boss assigns them to the …

Thor: Ragnarok, the second most recent Marvel movie, before Black Panther was a semi-enjoyable movie…but mostly a giant bore. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) returns home to Asgard to find Loki (Tom Hiddleston) pretending to be King after exiling Oden. When they go to bring Oden back home, they discover their sister Hela (Cate Blanchett) who brings death …
