Kung Fu Panda 3 Is a Merely Good Entry in A Great Franchise

The Truman Show: My Favorite Movie

The Truman Show: My Favorite Movie

When I first see The Truman Show, I know so little about it in advance. Still, once I started watching the movie, I said to myself “Oh, yes, I know this. I know what this is going to be”. I don’t mean I had thought of the idea myself, but it confirmed innate suspicions I had held that the world might all be a silly show playing all the time. My next source of delight…

The Dark Tower: All the Good and the Bad as well as the Ugly

The Dark Tower: All the Good and the Bad as well as the Ugly

Every so often in The Dark Tower you catch a glimpse of what might have been: the might-have-been narrative ambition, the might-have-been pop mythology, the might-have-been genre assemblage. Based — largely appears altogether too generous a word — on the Stephen King franchise, The Dark Tower film is an unappealing hash of filmmaking clichés that, after much scurrying and blathering, turns into a generic shoot’em-up. About the only thing holding it together is Idris Elba, whose irrepressible magnetism…

Kung Fu Panda 3 full movie free Is Fun with Fights, But It Deserve Better Story Sense

Kung Fu Panda 3 has some incredible moments, and the movie is full of genuinely creative use of 3D animation, but the ending is so utterly unearned that makes you wonder why you bothered caring for the story logic in a tale so ready to abandon logical way of thought. Kung Fu Panda 3 full movie grabs your attention right away with a battle in the spirit realm with the heroic and ancient tortoise Master Oogway (Randall…

Insidious Chapter 3 movie review: joltingly brilliant

Insidious Chapter 3 movie review: joltingly brilliant

[Insidious Chapter 3] This highly efficient – and unexpectedly moving – scare machine enhances the horror series to a whole new level. After the wacky and bungled second film, the state of the Insidious franchise – jack-in-the-box spookshows from the Saw brigade – looked parlous. Insidious 3 takes everything that was broken and fixes it. This gratifying multiplex-filler does nothing you’d exactly call revolutionary, but lots of things really well. It manages the all-important jump…

The Vault (2017) Movie Review

The Vault (2017) Movie Review

An estranged family tackling a bank heist in order to save a sibling is quite a recipe for interesting discourses movie of Dog Day Afternoon. Still, unfortunately, The Vault is not that kind of movie. Dan Bush has taken on multitasks as co-directing, co-writing and co-editing for the extraordinarily effective thriller/horror The Signal, then the overlooked yet well-constructed FightFuckPray. Unfortunately, again, his talent has not bled over into his latest outing. While striving to be…

Movie Review: Prometheus (2012) is part prequel, part variation

Movie Review: Prometheus (2012) is part prequel, part variation

In Prometheus , Ridley Scott has turns his classic Alien (1979) into something more grandiose, more elaborate, but less interesting. There are some shrewd and witty touches from Ridley that brings to audience a full package of wonderment, scariness, tension, ambitious and unforgettable shock. We also get Michael Fassbender stealing the show with his terrifically creepy performance and the chilling, parasitic relentlessness of that first gut-bound alien. The original took place in space, where no…

Atomic Blonde Movie 2017: Eye-popping Action, Mind-Numbing Plot

Atomic Blonde Movie 2017: Eye-popping Action, Mind-Numbing Plot

Atomic Blonde movie is set in the tinderbox days right before the fall of the Berlin Wall, where the East’s punk counterculture met the West’s ‘80s excess. In adapting graphic novel The Coldest City, Atomic Blonde becomes a far narrative step from John Wick, dealing so deeply as it does with the twisting, backstabbing intrigue of Cold War espionage thrillers. A genre we’re probably not used to watching with such a bright, neon sheen (it’s usually all dark rooms and…

22 Jump Street Movie Review

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are back together and again back to school working undercover. That isn’t the only couple getting back on this  genre-parody cake, we also have directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller having followed up their sly and self-referential franchise reboot of 21 Jump Street movie with an inevitable sequel that is a sly and self-referencing commentary on the inevitability of sequels. 22 Jump Street movie is a reunion for a second…

The Danish Girl Movie Review: A Little Too Much Gloss

The Danish Girl Movie Review: A Little Too Much Gloss

The Danish Girl is based on the true story of a pioneering recipient of gender reassignment surgery and on David Ebershoff’s book of the same name. The movie, directed by Tom Hooper, constantly emphasizes the dimension of acting in gender identity, and that making it but too much blurring performances of its cast with pantomime. In 2015, transgender themes and characters achieved their greatest media visibility yet. On TV, we have series such as Transparent and Boy Meets Girl….

Cult of Chucky Movie Review

Cult of Chucky Movie Review

It was excited when Cult of Chucky full movie was announced. The franchise would continue on in its newer style with what we really want: a creepy doll saying inappropriate things while killing people. One would think a request like that would be child’s play, right? You may not notice, but Chucky had a bit of a comeback a few years ago with the straight to video release of Curse of Chucky. Believe it or not, after a…

Johnny English (2003) Online Movie Review

Johnny English online movie, unimaginatively directed by Peter Howitt casting British comedian Rowan Atkinson marked the return of comedy spy movie after the time of Austin Power. While Atkinson is at his offbeat best, Johnny English (2003) movie is sorely routine and more often blaze than not. Every joke telegraphed far in advance of its ultimate appearance. When the rest of England’s spies are killed in an explosion, the full responsibility of the job is placed…

Annabelle Creation Review – Has the Conjuring Cinematic Universe Lost Its Scare Factor?

Annabelle Creation Review – Has the Conjuring Cinematic Universe Lost Its Scare Factor?

Annabelle Creation movie is filled with every scare tactic you’ve seen in every other horror movies. It makes a sense of squeezing the possessed doll trope for every drop of juice it has left. Thankfully, the concept still has enough in the tank to carry this movie comfortably into horror movie mediocrity. However, with absolutely nothing new in the tank, it will disappoint seasoned horror movie buffs. The latest installment of Conjuring Cinematic Universe, Annabelle…

Atomic Blonde movie: Charlize Theron delivers hyperactively absurd thriller

Atomic Blonde is an action spy thriller featuring Charlize Theron as the neon-lit badass goddess, sashaying frostily through many a Berlin nightclub in revealing evening outfit, where she might accept with a famous half-smile a Stoli-on-the-rocks and some badinage at the bar from multiple admirers, male and female, before putting the smackdown on some brutish East German gangsters. It is recreated by screenwriter Kurt Johnstad from the graphic novel The Coldest City of Antony Johnston and Sam…

Doctor Strange Gives Ominous Warning to Thor – Spoil from Thor Ragnarok Newest Trailer

People have already seen new character such as the powerful villain Hela (Cate Blanchett) and potential-to-be-Thor’s-love-one Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) introduced themselves in Thor Ragnarok trailers.
