Movie Review: Happy Death Day 2U Michelle’s Review

Whether its Live Die and Repeat, Netflix’s new show Russian Doll or the horror film Happy Death Day. Can we please put a stop to this alarming trend of people ripping off Groundhog Day? The simple premise – what would happen if you were forced to repeat the same day over and over again is becoming tired. Or is it. Every movie and TV show that has used this gimmick has somehow managed to pull it off and the horror movie Happy Death Day was no exception so can I really be surprised there’s a sequel, Happy Death Day 2U? Is Happy Death Day a “franchise” now?

TV Review: Roswell, New Mexico is a Slap in the Face to Fans of the Original, Michelle’s Review

No matter how awful everything turned out the first season of the 1999 series Roswell will always remain one of my top 10 favorite first seasons of all time. The show was utterly brilliant in terms of storytelling, character set up, initial world building, use of music and more. It still pains me how all of that good will was squandered in Season 2.

TV Review: HBO’s True Detective Season 3, Michelle’s Take

I think I’m the only person in the world who did not get the hype for HBO’s True Detective. I tried to watch the first season but it never clicked. It had amazing acting, but I found the pacing made it a slog to get through and most importantly its story telling gimmick of multiple time jumps confusing and simply broke the narrative flow. Those same issues have returned for Season 3.

Movies: Six Inspirational Movies For Entrepreneurs

There are a lot of movies out there about people who “make it.”

It’s just one of those story tropes we humans seem to love. The outsider, the underdog, the kid who gets bullied at school—when we see stories about how people with humble beginnings go on to win the day, the girl and/or a thick stack of cash, it’s fun!

Is this the real life or is this just fantasy, caught in a landslide, no escape from reality. Yes I opened this review with a lyric from Queen’s most famous song, sue me. Bohemian Rhapsody is actor Rami Malek’s love letter to the late, great Freddie Mercury. It’s too bad the movie doesn’t hold up to his amazing performance.

AMC A-List is the Best Deal in Movies today

Now that movie pass is imploding where does a movie lover turn to?  Since I recently moved, I’m not able to attend Press Screenings that often as the nearest press location is over an hour away so what do I do? I signed up for AMC’s A-List Program. After being burned by MoviePass and Sinemia I was skeptical about A-List. Check out the video below to see my thoughts.

Movie Review: Robin Hood is Fun! Michelle’s Take

I’m a sucker for Robin Hood films, to date I’ve loved every retelling of this yarn. There’s just something about the tell that is timeless and gets me every time. I’m not sure what people expect when they go see a Robin Hood film. I aspect a little romance and lots of swashbuckling this current incarnation delivers exactly what I want out of a Robin Hood film. The latest take on the classic tale, simply titled, once again, Robin Hood borrows heavily from the much hated 1991’s Kevin Costner’s Classic Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Personally, I loved the 1991 film.

Movie Review: A Star Is Born. Believe the Hype. Michelle’s Review

All year I’ve been hearing about how good the trailer for A Star Is Born was and all the early praise for just the movie trailer made me want to avoid seeing this and I’m a huge Lady GaGa fan. However, I don’t like walking into a movie with any preconceived notions, a film like this that has been praised to the high heavens before it was even officially screened. I believe nearly every version of this film has gotten award season love and the latest installment will be no exception. The story is timeless.
