However, Greengrass and co-scripter Christopher Rouse (who also serves as JASON BOURNE’s film editor) have centered the new film […]Read On »

Movie Review: LIGHTS OUT

LIGHTS OUT | © 2016 Warner Bros

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, Maria Bello, Alexander DiPersia, Alicia Vela-Bailey, Andi Osho, Billy Burke Writer: Eric Heiserrer, story by David F. Sandberg Director: David F. Sandberg Distributor: Warner Bros./New Line Cinema Release Date: July 22, 2016 Here’s a nice surprise: LIGHTS OUT, a summer horror movie that has consistent and well-earned scares, a modestly novel premise and good story logic. It’s that relative rarity that doesn’t even suffer from its PG-13 rating – the gore is just enough to be jolting, but not so pervasive that it gets an R or holds up the pacing. In LIGHTS […]Read On »

STAR TREK BEYOND | © 2016 Paramount

Stars: John Cho, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Sofia Boutella, Idris Elba Writers: Simon Pegg & Doug Jung, based on STAR TREK created by Gene Roddenberry Director: Justin Lin Distributor: Paramount Release Date: July 22, 2016 STAR TREK BEYOND is one of those franchise movies that is so completely bound to its specific film universe that it feels kind of like a big, long episode of a TV series. Except it doesn’t feel like a big, long episode of any of the TV iterations of STAR TREK, originally created by Gene Roddenberry, that […]Read On »

BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE EXTENDED CUT

BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE | © 2016 Warner Home Video

Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter Writers: Chris Terrio, David S. Goyer Director: Zack Snyder Publisher: Warner Home Video After spending years in development, what we got in BATMAN V. SUPERMAN left a lot to be desired. It was lambasted by critics for being too dark and too scatterbrain. Some fans also didn’t like it because it continued to portray Superman as a dark, brooding man with difficult morality choices and being extremely different from the comic books. Now, I thought the original cut was actually pretty […]Read On »
