The Dark Tower

The Dark Tower is not as bad as the reviews are saying, but it is not good by an means at all.  I liked Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey quite a bit at times, but the overall story is confusing for fans of The Dark Tower books and non fans alike. The movie is entertaining and has good parts, such as the two leads and some of the action scenes.I’m glad it was 95 minutes. 2.5/5 stars

I’m Back!

Hi all, I’m not sure anyone is even on here anymore. If you are reading this, then you will start seeing my posts about movies again. I am attempting to see a movie in the theater, each week, for the rest of the year. I will be posting reviews of the films I see as I go. I will also be watching, well marathoning

Everybody Wants Some

“The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together.”

Linkletter does it again. In this college baseball movie, there is little college or baseball involved in Everybody Wants some.The spitural successor to Dazed and confused feels just like we left the boys like Pink,Mitch, and Wooderson and followed them into their college days.  A movie about finding yourself is just as much part Dazed and Confused as it is part Boyhood. With rapid fire jokes and machine gun dialogue that linkletter is famous for, Everybody Wants Some uses sex, beer, and baseball to deliver a great movie and throwback to what Linkletter does best, nostalgia and the feeling of a reality in a picture. The ensemble cast is the movie’s real gem. Headlined by Blake Jenner and including Wyatt Russel simpler killls their lines and the chemistry between the boys never misses a beat.The soundtrack is just as good as Dazed and Confused. 4/5 

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children review 

2/5- Tim Burton strikes out again. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is not one of the better films from 2016. Full of plot holes and a less than interesting story about diversity while not having any real diversity in the film. Tim Burton’s latest fails to deliver where most of his other films do. He tries the weird out again while relying on outdated fx. I wouldn’t recommend watching this X-Men rehash.
