The Sisters Brothers Is A Comedic, Violent Western You Won’t Want To Miss

Bruce Willis’ Death Wish Is Exactly What You Would Expect

Let’s be honest, when you go to see a Bruce Willis movie you pretty know know what you are getting yourself into from the start. He’s an action star, and as such he’s never really pushed the envelope too far when it comes to his choices of roles. In fact most of the time you don’t even remember his character’s name (his Die Hard character of John McClane being one of the few exceptions), and you just think of his character as Bruce Willis. Death Wish is his latest film, and well, it is what it is.

Downsizing Is A Social Satire That Comes Up Short

Take our world, with our massive buildings, overpopulated cities and food shortages, and now imagine we have the ability to shrink everything down and solve a lot of the crowding problems we have today. That’s the premise of director Alexander Payne’s new film Downsizing, and while it is an interesting premise, the film itself is frustratingly short when it comes to being a film that keeps your interest.

Mother! Is Not For Everyone

By the time Darren Aronofsky and Jennifer Lawrence’s latest film Mother! made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, people were already talking about it. It had gotten both a standing ovation and boos from the crowd at the Venice Film Festival, and movie going fans from around the world didn’t know what to expect. After TIFF, the film got mixed reviews and when the film made its theatrical debut a week later people stayed away from it. But the question is, was it really so controversial and bad? That is a tricky question to answer, and here’s why.

Transformers: The Last Knight Looks Good On Bluray

2017 has seen several big budget films fall into the category of “not very good”, and thus become a failure at the box office. Transformers: The Last Knight is one of those, and it is the first in the franchise to be labelled both a critical and commercial bomb. However with the digital and bluray release of the film this week, some of that loss may yet still be recuperated.

CHIPS Is Very Different Than The Classic TV Show

If you grew up in the late 70s/early 80s, odds are you have seen at least one episode of CHIPS. After all the series lasted for 6 seasons, and was one of the most popular on TV during its run. If you liked the series, or even if you didn’t, you can’t go into the new movie based on the series thinking it will be the same. It’s very different, and other than the fact that it’s based around the California Highway Patrol, and has characters of the same name, you really can’t compare the two.
