While “Game Night” is a funny comedy, it falls short in some aspects

“Game Night” is well directed with some good laughs built into a solid script. The movie stars Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler, and is co-directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. Max and Annie, an extremely competitive couple, played by Bateman and McAdams respectively, have weekly game nights. This week, Max’s lavish brother […]

Black Panther goes beyond high expectations and does not disappoint

“Black Panther” went beyond the already immensely high expectations I had and delivers as a powerful character piece with important messages in a thrilling package. “Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa the Black Panther and King of Wakanda, as well as Michael B Jordan as Erik Killmonger, a mysterious outsider with a grudge against […]

The movie begins where […]

Directed by Matthew Vaughn, this […]

An original film doesn’t live up to trailer

Daniel Espinosa’s “Life” may be original, but the trailer was better. The film, which follows six astronauts working in the International Space Station who are being threatened by a murderous hyper-intelligent alien, ultimately suffers from a similar problem to that of last year’s “Triple 9.” Both of these films managed to produce trailers that were better than the actual movie, which was disappointing. “Life” […]
