Star Trek: Beyond [2016]

 It’s not “Into Darkness” or the classic “The Wrath of Khan”, but producer J.J Abrams and his collaborators have managed to pull off the impossible by delivering yet another spectacular entry in the Star Trek franchise. “Beyond” , once again starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto (who both continue to […]

Central Intelligence [2016]

 It’s a Hollywood summer tradition: a silly comedy starring two likable actors. We’ve seen it in “The Heat”, “Spy” and “The Other Guys”. In Central Intelligence’s case, they are a good reason to buy a ticket, and they go by the name of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. In […]

Alice Through The Looking Glass [2016]

Tim Burton’s attempt at reinventing Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” and turn it into a live-action movie back in 2010 resulted in a visually impressive experience…but it bored me to tears. Did we really need a sequel? Definitely not, and “Through the Looking Glass” offers absolutely nothing new. Mia Wasikowka […]

Captain Fantastic [2016]

 In a summer filled with lousy remakes and crappy aliens (I’m looking at you, “Independence Day”), it’s refreshing to encounter a movie as original as “Captain Fantastic”. It’s one of my favorite movies of the season. Viggo Mortensen is a standout, playing a devoted father who lives with […]

Ghostbusters [2016]

How you react to this remake will have a lot to do with your expectations. If you’re expecting something as memorable as the 1984 original starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykyord, Rick Moranis, Ernie Hudson and the late Harold Ramis, you will probably come away disappointed. I approached it with […]

The Conjuring 2 [2016]

“The Conjuring 2” is that rare example of a horror sequel that surpasses the original. The first one scared the living hell out of me. Part 2 is 20 minutes longer, so you get an extra dose of scares. And boy does it work. So kudos to director James […]

The Legend Of Tarzan [2016]

 As far as summer blockbusters go, “The Legend of Tarzan” is a fun ride from start to finish. I didn’t expect a work of genius, mainly because this is familiar territory for anyone who has seen at least one Tarzan film before. And yet, the filmmakers have a few […]

Now You See Me 2 [2016]

 Unlike many friends and colleagues, I wasn’t a fan of the first “Now You See Me” movie, released back in 2013. While I enjoyed the cast and the premise, I didn’t care much for all the twists and turns that director Louis Leterrier threw at us. That being said, […]

The Purge: Election Year [2016]

 As someone, who, didn’t care much for any of the previous”Purge” movies, I actually had a good time watching this third installment. Here, writer director James DeMonaco finally gives us a reason to care for all the characters involved in the annual purge, where, for 12 hours, the […]

Independence Day: Resurgence [2016]

 “We always knew they’d be back” they said. And I always knew it would suck. Let’s face it: what clicked in the mid 1990’s clearly doesn’t anymore. Following the first movie’s huge success (and believe me, it was), director Roland Emmerich went on to direct several “end of times” […]
