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. Henry (Jaeden Lieberher) is a boy genius. Not only does he take care of the...

“Dark Universe” is what Universal Studios calls its attempt to establish a new movie series full of classic monsters. After watching Disney make billions with its Marvel and Star Wars franchises, the studio now wants its own piece of the pie. 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.

Then she meets BV and falls in love, meanwhile Cook starts dating Rhonda and marries her. At the same time, BV and Faye...

The opener of this year’s SXSW Film Festival was one of the hardest ones to get tickets for. Some people waited in line for up to seven hours without success, but little did they know that they didn’t miss a thing; ‘Song to Song’ featuring Michael Fassbender, Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman and Cate...

1987 saw the release of “Three O’ Clock High,” a teen comedy about a student who is challenged to a fight by a bully and tries everything to avoid it, and “Fist Fight” is a remake of this film nearly 30 years later. This time, it’s the teachers who fight. Andy Campbell (Charlie Day) is an introverted English teacher at...

“A Dog’s Purpose” sparked a big outrage about animal treatment on movie sets after a video from the set leaked to a news magazine. Although the topic is important, manipulating the public with obviously edited footage that dramatized the event doesn’t help the cause. Due to this discussion, people almost forget to...
