Review: “A LEGO Brickumentary”

By far, the most all-inclusive brick documentary to date, “A LEGO Brickumentary” is as informative as it is fun. When the film begins with narration by a stop-action minifig (Jason Bateman), it’s immediately apparent this isn’t your average documentary.  Instead, co-directors Daniel Junge and Kief Davidson have created something truly unique: A documentary that kids [...]

Review: “Pixels”

Hollywood’s nostalgia-ploitation films keep on coming, this time it’s mining Generation Xer’s love of retro arcade games, but the target audience seems to be small children.   For those of us who used to pump quarters into the old 8-bit arcade games, the premise is certainly intriguing.  The games we used to play, the space [...]

Review: “Southpaw”

Imagine Rocky, in any of his six films, as an incredibly unlikable character, and you have a quick idea of what to expect from “Southpaw.” Director Antoine Fuqua has made a number of thrilling films.  Regardless of how good or bad they may have been, “The Replacement Killers”, “Training Day”, and “The Equalizer” were entertaining and [...]

Review: “Magic Mike XXL”

Magic Mike’s second coming may end up as one of the funniest comedies of 2015. Steven Soderbergh’s 2012 “Magic Mike” was loosely based on Channing Tatum’s early days as a male exotic dancer and featured equal parts of humor and drama into a moderately entertaining film. XXL is a entirely different beast, a much more [...]

Review: “Terminator: Genisys”

Playing like Terminator Fan Fiction, “Genisys” has fun with some of our favorite characters and moments, before degrading into a painfully stupid script. Ignoring the last two films, this fifth entry in the “Terminator” series instead focuses on elements from the beloved first two.  A surprisingly entertaining credit sequence brings everyone in the audience up [...]
