When the trailer for “IT” got published, it was watched more than 190 million within the first 24 hours. This incredible number broke all records by far and predicted a huge success for the movie. The studio even green lighted a sequel before the official start. But can the movie hold up to the hype? There is something...

Despite being one of the most talented directors out there, Darren Aronofsky’s last movie “Noah,” an American epic biblical drama, was not well received by the public or critics. After the poor ratings his movie received, viewers thought Aronofsky would move forward, and leave religious movies behind. But audiences...

After his screenplays for “Sicario” and “Hell or High Water,” writer and director Taylor Sheridan completed his American Frontier trilogy with his second feature “Wind River,” starring Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen. In rural Wyoming, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agent Corey Lambert (Renner) finds the body of a...

Many movies have been made about World War II, one of the most well-known being “Saving Private Ryan.” Just when we thought there couldn’t be a tale more intense and realistic, Christopher Nolan introduced “Dunkirk.” In 1940, World War II is in full swing, and German troops are closing in on the Allies.

Some movies have been referred to as emotional rollercoasters. For “The Book of Henry,” I would describe it as an emotional Apollo mission, or in other words, a testament of every element coming together and pulling off something excellent.

“Dark Universe” is what Universal Studios calls its attempt to establish a new movie series full of classic monsters.

The opening to its new series, “The Mummy,” is the studio’s attempt at getting...

Here it is – the eighth movie of Universal’s automotive carnage franchise, and the first to see the original crew moving on after Paul Walker’s tragic death. It was the actor’s chemistry with Vin Diesel that got the series this far, which makes it crucial to see if the fans are still committed (and they are). Before...

Indie director Zach Braff, better known as the dreamy doctor J.D. from “Scrubs,” has delivered his third feature film, and this time there’s nothing indie about it. Although the family-friendly feel-good comedy is highly entertaining, it misses the edginess seen in his previous work. Three senior citizens, Joe...

“The Disaster Artist” When a small movie called “The Room” hit two theaters in the Los Angeles area in 2003, no one knew what to do with the film or Tommy Wiseau, its mysterious director. Advertised as a drama, the movie seemed to ignore every fundamental rule of filmmaking. It turned into a hilarious reel of unrelated,...

A list of this year’s SXSW films I believe to be the most watchable and why. Song to Song (5/10) Faye, a musician we never see making music, goes out with Cook, a music mogul, to boost her career. Then she meets BV and falls in love, meanwhile Cook starts dating Rhonda and marries her. At the same time, BV and Faye...
