Power Rangers [2017] ★½

 It’s pointless to try and figure out why this version of “Power Rangers” was made. The movie only exists because of Hollywood’s need to reboot pretty much every popular show/movie ever made. So how to describe my reaction? I’m not angry. Indifferent, perhaps. But not angry. I walked […]

Gold [2017] ★★½

 I can’t imagine anyone other than Matthew McConaughey in the role of Kenny Wells, a Nevada prospector who teamed up with a mining engineer in the 1980’s to dig for Gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia. McConaughey is fully committed to his role, transforming himself once again, […]

The Great Wall [2016] ★½

 The Great Wall, starring Matt Damon as China’s last hope in their fight against some ancient creatures (huh?) is… how shall I put it? Cheesy. Ridiculous. A waste of talent. Damon traveled all the way to China to shoot this big budget production from director Zhang Yimou (“Hero”). […]

Doctor Strange [2016] ★★★

 It’s always refreshing to encounter a new kind of hero in this already overstuffed superhero cinematic universe. DC unleashed “Batman V Superman” and “Suicide Squad” earlier this year, while Marvel delivered one of their best movies yet: “Civil War”. Is there room for more? The answer is yes […]
