Rise of the Planet of the Apes Review

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is the underwhelming introduction to the recently rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise. The film stars James Franco as Will, a San Francisco scientist working on a drug that he hopes will cure Alzheimer’s, a disease his father (John Lithgow) suffers from. When Will’s experiments (which are conducted using apes as test subjects) are deemed a failure by … Continue reading Rise of the Planet of the Apes Review

War for the Planet of the Apes Review

War for the Planet of the Apes is the highly anticipated conclusion to the Planet of the Apes trilogy. The film takes place a few years after the events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, where Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his family have been forced into a devastating war with a ruthless military Colonel. As the apes continue to suffer heavy losses, Caesar … Continue reading War for the Planet of the Apes Review

Transformers: The Last Knight Review

What else is there left to say about the Transformers series? The films are long, poorly written, and entirely too predictable. Yet, they continue to be made, profiting more and more money with each sequel. Despite this unfortunate truth, I will attempt to honestly review the film all the same. The film takes place shortly after the events of the previous installment, where humans are at … Continue reading Transformers: The Last Knight Review

47 Meters Down Review

47 Meters Down blurs the line between what should be allowed in the theater, and what should be restricted to the Syfy channel. With atrocious acting, poor CGI effects, and a slew of other issues, 47 Meters Down manages to be both dim-witted and ludicrous. The film follows two sisters named Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) on a vacation trip to the coast of Mexico. … Continue reading 47 Meters Down Review

Alien: Covenant Review

Of all the countless films I’ve seen over the years, none have captivated me more than Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece, Alien. From the lonely atmospheric environment, to the fantastic H. R. Giger design work, all the pieces fell perfectly into place to create a one of a kind science fiction beauty. The 1986 sequel Aliens, directed by James Cameron and once again starring Sigourney Weaver, also enthralled me, in … Continue reading Alien: Covenant Review

Phoenix Forgotten Review

From director Justin Barber and producer Ridley Scott comes another boring found footage movie, this time about aliens. Similar to the premise of The Blair Witch Project, Phoenix Forgotten is a story about three teenagers who go missing in the Arizona desert while searching for UFOs.  These events take place only a few days after the real life occurrence of the ‘Phoenix Lights’, where thousands of people … Continue reading Phoenix Forgotten Review

Godzilla Review

With the recent release of Kong: Skull Island, and its exciting connections to the newly rebooted Godzilla franchise, I’ve decided to review the Godzilla film that kicked it all off. The film centers around Ford Brody (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), a bomb expert working for the Navy, who goes to Japan to aid his delirious father Joe (Bryan Cranston). Unfortunately for them, both get involved in the awakening of … Continue reading Godzilla Review

Power Rangers Review

How many Krispy Kreme plugs does it take to make a Power Rangers movie? That was the primary question running through my head as I watched Saban’s Power Rangers. Power Rangers takes place in the small town of Angel Grove, where five misfit teens discover ancient coins that give them superhero powers. With these coins, the teenagers turn into the Power Rangers, defenders of Earth from alien threats. … Continue reading Power Rangers Review
