Movie Review: Shazam! Disappoints Michelle!

How do I say this? Shazam. Shazam! Or do I go Gomer Pyle style and say, Shazam!, Shazam, Shazam? These are the big questions of the Universe that keep me up at nights. No seriously. Anyhoo we’re here to talk about the state of the Super Hero movie world, namely the folks at the World of DC has a new crowd pleasure on their hands, Shazam. Unfortunately, once again I find myself not in the “in crowd,” as I did not like this movie.

Movie Review: Captive State fails to Captivate Michelle!

 

If anyone ever bothers to ask, my all-time favorite movie is actually the TV Mini-Series “V” for me it’s a near perfect movie. Maybe not technically and sure it’s special affects don’t hold up to today’s standards, but from a story point of view I think it’s the perfect film. It’s a film that’s about something more than just explosions it asks what you would do if fascists took over. Would you be collaborator or resistance fighter and it one line in the movie has always stuck with me – “One man’s resistance is another’s terrorist.” I hoped that Captive State would scratch that itch for me, sadly it fails on almost every level. Maybe that’s harsh.

Five Feet Apart Adds a Few Wrinkles to a Formulaic Film!

Five Feet Apart (the screenplay for which was turned into a bestselling novel) is not just a ‘beautiful sick teens in love’ movie. It lacks most of the treacle that tends to get in the way of genuine emotion in these types of films.

Movie Review: Captain Marvel Great start to Phase IV, Michelle’s Review

As the former Wrestler Vader used to say, it’s time, it’s Time! It’s Captain Marvel (Brie Larson ) time! Ok, that line sounds better in my head than it does on paper, but we’ll go with it. All the obnoxious, toxic, manufactured controversy aside this movie works and works well. It’s not the greatest movie in the world, but then I think most Marvel films are way overrated, but this is a solid time at the theaters.

Movie Review: Greta Is Just Ok, Michelle’s Review

Ever since Kick Ass, I’ve been a massive fan of Chloë Grace Moretz  (Frances McCullen) and you team her up with one of my favorite Directors/Writers/Actors Neil Jordan how could I not want to see the psychological “horror” film Greta? Even if the whole Single White Female drama trope isn’t really my thing. Walked in with minimal expectations other than loving the creators. It also helped that my movie choices were limited this weekend, unless I wanted to see Madea.

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?
