Back when Suicide Squad was rushed into reshoots following the reaction to the initial trailer release, I remember talking myself into the opinion that filming new content could only be a good thing even though most feared for the worst. After all, video game release dates get pushed all the time to allow for more […]Read more "Film Review: Suicide Squad"
Going in I didn’t expected to fully understand what occurs in Blackhat because I know nothing about hacking and coding, but the lack of a previous understanding of this skill-set is not what makes this film nonsensical. It’s that it’s just bad.Read more "Film Review: Blackhat"

The Help is built around a lot of strong performances, but the film doesn’t bring anything new to the table, and does only a couple things really well beyond the acting.Read more "Film Review: The Help"
Eat Pray Love is a dull and poorly executed picture that meanders, is no where near as good as it thinks it is, and fails to engage or fill us with emotion almost every step of the way. Liz Gilbert isn’t happy in life and when she decides she can’t take it any more she […]Read more "Review: Eat Pray Love"
