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...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hidden Figures”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hidden Figures”

So, it turns out that some of the most profound work done at NASA was performed behind the scenes, and not only was it done by women, it was done by African American women. In the 1960s, the United States was hard at work, trying to come up with the latest technology that would advance their astronauts into space, but would have them navigate around the Earth. Now, getting satellites into space is especially important because the Soviet Union has had a successful launch. This means round the clock research, team work and execution and results. But for our three heroines, Katherine Johnson (who is a mathematician), Mary Jackson (future...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “A Monster Calls”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “A Monster Calls”

I didn’t know much going into this movie review. I knew it was about a sad kid and Felicity Jones is in it. So if you know anything about it, you can imagine my hesitation when I realized how hormonal I was and it was time to watch this film. As the trailer elaborates, this is the story of a boy-not-yet-a-man named Conor (played by Lewis MacDougall) who is struggling to deal with losing his mother (Felicity Jones) slowly due to illness. Conor believes he is doing enough to care for his mother, and that she will eventually get better. His grandmother (Sigourney Weaver) is stepping in and moving Conor into her house; a move Conor does...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Jackie”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Jackie”

Natalie Portman does a pretty good job portraying former First Lady Jaqueline “Jackie” Kennedy. This is the kind of role where a lot of research has to take place, especially to get Jackie’s speech, mannerisms and style down pat. Not only that, but this is one of the most popular First Ladies of the United States, given that she and her late husband embodied the whole ‘Camelot’ appeal of the presidency. They had it all: looks, charisma, family pedigree, adorable children and power. But on November 22, 1963, that all changed. This film follows Jackie Kennedy, as she goes through life in the White House and immediately after the...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Nocturnal Animals”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Nocturnal Animals”

Nocturnal Animals is the second feature length film from acclaimed fashion designer turned filmmaker Tom Ford, whose foray into filmmaking has proven to be an incredulous stroke of genius as he continues to dazzle audiences with gripping stories and mesmerizing characters. As with A Single Man, Tom Ford demonstrates an enchanting ability to tell a story with imagination, flair and of course, style. Nocturnal Animals is no different and the strangely structured narrative adds to the sense of unease instilled in you for the film’s duration. Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Aaron Taylor Johnson and Michael Shannon shine so brightly in the...
