HBOWatch Movie Review: “Lego Batman Movie”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Lego Batman Movie”

The Lego Movie isn’t the first movie-as-advertisement for a children’s toy that resonated so completely with its target audience, but it is the first one that holds up against one’s nostalgia for it (even if that nostalgia only reaches back a few years). As a branding exercise, it manages to hit nearly every major pop-culture-icon-as-Lego reference it needs in order to land with general audiences, but it goes a step further in becoming a surprisingly poignant deconstruction of the “Chosen One” story. A Joe Everyman lego person named Emmett, the idealized citizen in his rigidly structured world, accidentally stumbles into a...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Get Out”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Get Out”

The wildly successful movie Get Out written and directed by Jordan Peele is coming to HBO this Saturday, November 4th, 2017. If by chance you haven’t seen it, you’ve probably heard the buzz surrounding the movie. During its initial release, it received rave reviews and buzz for having a 99% on Rotten Tomatoes. While the trailer hints at a thriller/horror/comedy, most people, including myself, were able to find an appreciation for the brilliant writing on social topics. Peele tackles hypnosis, interracial dating, privilege, prejudice, race and a host of other topics. What you can expect is a plot that weaves effortlessly between socially...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Split”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Split”

When it was announced that M. Knight Shyamalan had a new movie coming out, you could understand why I would be skeptical and a tad worried. He hasn’t at times had the best reputation for good films. It took seeing the trailer for me to be convinced it would be worth my time.  And how my, it was well worth my time, but take a look and see for yourself. I gotta say, that trailer completely gives me the hee-bee-jee-bees.  If James McAvoy is not on the radar for an Oscar, then the whole Oscar system needs to be reevaluated. McAvoy stars as Kevin, a man with 23 distinct personalities all percolating inside his brain space, and a 24th...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “John Wick Chapter 2”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “John Wick Chapter 2”

And so we return to the day to day life of John Wick, a semi-retired contract killer and guardian angel of good dogs everywhere. When we last left off, he was bloody, bruised, but no longer broken after gunning through the entirety of the Russian mob, after the son of their boss had killed his dog. And now we see him trying to retreat back into the life he briefly had prior to that with a new dog and hopefully, time to finish healing. Of course, we know that’s not how it’s going to work out. The first John Wick was a special kind of action movie. It had action and style to spare, but what really set it apart and made it memorable was...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Fifty Shades Darker”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Fifty Shades Darker”

I don’t know where to start with Fifty Shades Darker, it has easily placed itself in the ‘one of the worst films I have ever seen’ category, along with its buddy Fifty Shades of Grey and I’m saving a special place in there for Fifty Shades Freed which is, unfortunately, coming out next Valentines Day. They, of course, make up the three filmed installments based on the novels by E. L. James.  There are so many things that are wrong with this film, not just the utter lack of chemistry between Christian and Ana, but the fact that their relationship is so unbelievably boring that there really isn’t a story there to tell. Again,...

Movies On HBO: “Why Him?”

Movies On HBO: “Why Him?”

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review WHY HIM? That doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to this R-rated comedy that came out December of last year. One reason it might appear on the schedule this month is because it stars James Franco, who is playing Vincent & Frankie Martino on THE DEUCE right now. He only appears in this movie as one character named Laird Mayhew. The title question refers to him. Even without knowing the premise of the movie you get the sense that someone is not happy that Laird is in the picture. Details straight from the producing studio, Twentieth Century Fox sums it up:...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Assassin’s Creed”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Assassin’s Creed”

To say that the genre of feature films based on video games has a problematic history would be an understatement. It is filled with colossal critical failures, including Super Mario Bros. and Street Fighter. Some of the more tolerable entries in the field were the serviceable Lara Croft (2001), which included a swaggering turn by Angelina Jolie and a fun supporting performance by a pre-Bond Daniel Craig. Then there was Resident Evil (2002), which was decent, if not great, but which has suffered from diminishing returns on its sequels. Over the years, I kept waiting for the film that would do for video games what Richard Donner’s Superman...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “La La Land”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “La La Land”

  From the Director of the critically acclaimed and Oscar-winning film, Whiplash comes Damien Chazelle’s follow-up film La La Land, a personalized love letter to Hollywood and jazz music with a dash of realism about the movie industries volatile nature. La La Land has been celebrated and praised unanimously for being a genre-breaking musical/drama/comedy/romance film with whispers of surrealism and notes of despair. With a plethora of Oscar nominations and Emma Stone taking the prize for her performance, there is no denying the success of this film. Under the ruse of a musical, the story takes us into the belly of the beast with...
