Movie Review: “The Birth of a Nation”

Movie Review: “The Birth of a Nation”

Race relations and slavery have always been a topic of controversy, especially now in the U.S. where police brutality against African Americans is a hot button issue. Initially, I was keen on watching the film even though I knew it would put me in an uncomfortable mood. But learning to be a white ally means learning to sit with discomfort and listening to what others have experienced. This film reminded me of a similar feeling as when I watched Django Unchained. To be an aware person means to see the inequality and learn from it, even and especially if you feel uncomfortable. The Birth of a Nation bears the same title as a 1915 film, which...

Movie Review: “The Conjuring 2”

Movie Review: “The Conjuring 2”

Real life husband and wife Ed and Elaine Warren became famous for investigating high-profile cases of the paranormal, most notably The Amityville case. In their 2013 film, The Conjuring, director James Wan and writers Chad and Carey Hayes focused on the Perron family haunting in Rhode Island. After sitting out the 2014 spinoff prequel film Annabelle, Wan and the Hayes return for The Conjuring 2, once again focusing on the Warrens. This time, Ed and Elaine (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, pictured) are called to the U.K. for a case that would later be known as The Enfield Poltergeist.  The poltergeist activity centers on the...

Movie Review: “The Accountant”

Movie Review: “The Accountant”

At first I wasn’t sure what to make of this political yet mathematic thriller, but eventually, I got a little bit into it. With the great cast and decent concept, it makes a fairly interesting watch. Ben Affleck plays the main character, Christian Wolff, who is an accountant for drug cartels and criminals around the world. When he’s not kicking it criminal, he’s hanging out in his Airstream trailer with an original Renoir and Jackson Pollack. For work above board, he does normal accounting for normal people. But he’s the main target for the US Federal Treasury Department agent Ray King, played by J.K. Simmons (of...

Movie Review: “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”

Movie Review: “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”

Many of the movie reviews I have done over the past couple years have had a book that preceded the film and in most cases, I have read the book.  Or at least, I read the book if I was interested. (Sorry, Bourne series.)  This was the first time I have been unable to read the book before watching the film and was disappointed by that fact.  But having heard about the interesting story behind the book, I pushed aside my habit of being a book stickler and checked this film out. Written by Ransom Riggs, this book follows the adventure of Jacob Portman as he discovers the stories his grandpa told him in his childhood were actually real. After...

Movie Review: “Storks”

Movie Review: “Storks”

A movie for all! We’ve all heard the old tale, Storks deliver babies…THE END! But did you ever ask yourself, why did they stop delivering babies? Well, wonder no more! Here’s what happened… You see, a stork named Jasper decided he wanted to keep a baby instead of delivering it. At that time, the boss, Hunter (voiced by Kelsey Grammer), decided there was no longer a future in delivering babies. You see the risk was far too great! In the midst of chaos, the baby’s address was lost and Jasper (voiced by Danny Trejo) flew away. Without any address or idea of what to do next, they decided to keep the baby, Tulip, and switch to the...

Movie Review: “Jason Bourne”

Movie Review: “Jason Bourne”

I’m going to be really honest with you all reading this: I don’t remember the first three movies very well, and I didn’t see the fourth one featuring Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz. So I was wondering if I had missed things and would I be able to keep up with the story? I figured it would be Matt Damon wanting to be free of the agency and doing whatever he had to do to accomplish that…like every other Bourne movie with Matt Damon. I don’t remember much plot, just mostly punches. Right? Did I get it right? So admittedly this film did have some plot, actually way too much. The story begins with Jason Bourne...

Movie Review: “Sully”

Movie Review: “Sully”

Based on true events, Sully follows the story of Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the heroic captain who was able to safely land a damaged plane in the Hudson River without losing a single life. On January 15th, 2009, Sullenberger took off with co-pilot Jeff Skiles from LaGuardia airport heading for Charlotte, North Carolina. Shortly after take off, a large flock of Candian geese came in front the plane and after the collision had rendered the engines destroyed. Due to the quick thinking of Captain Sullenberger and Co-pilot Skiles, the plane was safely landed in the Hudson River. And due to the quick response of paramedics and...

Movie Review: Victor Frankenstein

Movie Review: Victor Frankenstein

James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe play the scientific duo that attempts to bring a dead man to life in Victor Frankenstein. The road to hell is paved with good intentions and in this movie we see a man who is possessed with wanting to extend the boundaries of scientific exploration and the creation of life after death. We all know that when you’re playing around with experiments, unchartered territory and the possibility of resurrection, things don’t always end on a positive note. The two protagonists couldn’t be more different: Victor appears to come from an affluent family and is a medical student studying medicine at the London...
