I watch bad movies so you can save your money

Tag [2018] ★★½

 A new idea for a Hollywood comedy is a rare thing to find these days. The fact that “Tag” feels (somehow) fresh more often than other films of the same genre is cause for cheering. And if you have a cast that includes Ed Helms (in one of […]

Incredibles 2 [2018] ★★★

It took 14 years for writer-director Brad Bird to cook-up a sequel to his smash hit “The Incredibles”, but as a fan of the first film, it was well worth the wait. “Incredibles 2” is just as funny, fast-paced and entertaining as its predecessor. Like every Disney/Pixar film, […]

Solo: A Star Wars Story [2018] ★★★

It was never going to top “Rogue One”, the Star Wars spin-off that left everyone (including me) pleasantly surprised, but “Solo” is the kind of summer blockbusters that has all the right ingredients to entertain its target audience. Unlike every film since “The Force Awakens”, this one actually […]

Book Club [2018] ★★

 It’s derivative, it’s predictable, and there’s nothing in it that you haven’t really seen before. But “Book Club”, starring screen legends Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen, is an amusing film that doesn’t take itself too seriously. In terms of plot, 4 friends decide to spice-up […]

Deadpool 2 [2018] ★★★

 Prepare your chimichanga, put on some R-Rated music, and get ready for another round of your favorite anti-superhero. It’s not Shakespeare, but Deadpool indeed belongs in history books for being one of the most entertaining heroes in this huge Marvel universe. Ryan Reynolds has a blast, once again, […]

Isle Of Dogs [2018] ★★★½

 Anyone who’s been following this blog for the past few years probably knows that I love Wes Anderson and stop-motion animation. Anderson explored this territory before in 2009’s “Fantastic Mr. Fox”, and he’s at it again with the beautiful “Isle of Dogs”, a love letter to dogs and […]

Blockers [2018] ★★½

 Funny, vulgar, raunchy. That’s “Blockers” in a nutshell. The film earns its R-Rating right from the start, as we meet three parents (John Cena, Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz) who are on a mission: to stop their daughters from having sex on prom night. It’s a silly set-up, […]
