Angel Has Fallen

Well, here we go again. Agent Mike Banning has thwarted North Korean terrorists when they attacked The white house and held the president captive when Olympus fell. A few years later he has to protect the President again when Pakistani terrorists try to kill Western World leaders visiting London to pay respects to the UK Prime minister who died mysteriously days before. Yes, London fell but good Ol’ Mike was there to pick them up. Now the president ‘Guardian Angel’ has fallen and who will help him this time around. Yup, you guessed it he’s gonna do it himself because this is an action movie and he’s a man of action.

The Banana Splits Movie

The golden age of Hollywood is not Tarantino's

What's Good: Another great performance from Leonardo DiCaprio (Brad Pitt isn't bad either), his pairing with Brad Pitt lives up to expectations, fully immersed in the sites and sounds of...

A fun but generic addition to the franchise.

What's Good: Marvel finally gets a female-led film, Brie Larson is a good fit for her role, Samuel L. Jackson is never boring, fun swashbuckling plot, some funny moments, a...

Big eyes, slightly less big thrills.

Disembodied limbs fly across the screen in slow motion. Twisting in flight they spray a synthetic blue blood. A seedy underworld teems with nasty cyborgs, armed to the teeth with...

Vicious historical farce isn't for the faint of heart.

What's Good: Great performance by a great cast, technically compelling direction, lavish production, biting dialogue, witty presentation, perfect balance between comedy and tragedy, unbalanced delivery makes for a challenging picture...

Another movie to make you feel sorry for the current state of politics.

What's Good: Solid if not spectacular performances, interesting story derived from actual events, production really helps transport you to the 1980's, film provides different perspectives on a singular event, draws...

The more sophisticated heist movie.

What's Good: Impeccable direction by Steve McQueen, twisty Hitchcock-like plot leaves lots to analyze, powerful performances from three leading ladies, great supporting cast, emotionally mature subject matter makes an impact,...
