What do you say about a guy who has a sharp ear for musical talent, a nose covered in cocaine and a head for business? Richie first appears on screen, in his Mercedes Benz, parked on the street.

Movie Review: Furious 7

Movie Review: Furious 7

The Fast And The Furious franchise has never been one for quality. Furious 7 is no different. The acting is bad, the plot makes no sense, and yet its still immensely enjoyable. The plot involves the Furious crew on the run from a super assassin related to the villain of the last movie. Statham who plays the villain Deckard Shaw, is on a mission to take out the entire crew. Remember Tokyo Drift, and the death of Han? Well, Shaw is the man responsible. To be honest there is more to the plot, involving hacking, and Kurt Russell but its all just an excuse to get from one action set piece to the other. James Wan, the architect behind the Saw...

Movie Review: Annabelle

Movie Review: Annabelle

I don’t go much for scary movies. And I go even less for ones with creepy dolls. So of course I reviewed Annabelle. Why not? For those of you that also don’t enjoy horror or scary dolls, Annabelle is the sequel/prequel to The Conjuring. In The Conjuring, a discussion is had about a doll Annabelle that terrorized the lives of two women. Annabelle tells the story of how the doll came to be. Having not seen The Conjuring, I appreciated that I didn’t feel a lack of information or understanding.  At times with prequels, not seeing the original work creates a detriment to the film.  In this case, I was pleased to know that...
