With the success of 2014's The Lego Movie and 2017's The Lego Batman Movie, Warner Bros. decided to continue the franchise and created a film based on the popular Lego Ninjago toy line called, appropriately, The Lego Ninjago Movie. I must admit that after having enjoyed the first two films very much and finding them surprisingly funny and delightfu... Read More

In 1982, Ridley Scott (Alien) gave us a highly stylized movie called Blade Runner.  It was set in the future and starred Harrison Ford (Star Wars: Episode IV -A New Hope).  Thirty-five Years later, Director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario) gives us the sequel, Blade Runner 2049.  It continues the story of the ...

Millions of people everyday doing the same thing over and over again.  They leave their nice little homes in the suburbs, get on a train into Manhattan, go to work in some high rise building all day, get back on the train, and head home back to the suburbs.  Nothing much changes from one day to the next and nothing exciting ever really ha...

The year was 1973.  Equal Rights and Feminism were at the forefront of American People's minds.  Former Champion tennis player and male chauvinist Bobby Riggs (Steve Carrell: The Office) spouted off about how women shouldn't be playing tennis in the same league with men and challenged the top female players to a match to prove once and fo...

In 1986 Hasbro toys decided to make a television series based on one of their popular toys – My Little Pony.  The show lasted two seasons but merchandising continued to sell for some years after.  Then in 1992, we got another version called My Little Pony Tales that had 26 episodes.  Almost 20 years later My Little Pony: Friend...

With the success of Christopher Nolan's (Dunkirk) reimagined version of Batman in 2005's Batman Begins Warner Bros. decided to green light his second installment, The Dark Knight, which was released 3 years later.  Once again Christian Bale (American Psycho) reprised his role as Bruce Wayne though this time we see a more mature and collected c...

Since the Late 1980s Batman has gone through a number of iterations and in 2005 Director Christopher Nolan (Inception) got a crack at telling the story.  His version, Batman Begins, was different from past attempts and was so well received that he was given the opportunity to continue his tale two more times, once in 2008 and again in 2012.&nb...

American Made is based on the true story of Barry Seal (Tom Cruise; Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation).  It's a fascinating tale of drugs, greed, guns and wealth that involves the governments of a number of countries including the United States.  It chronicles Barry's life as he "worked the system" while getting involved ...

If you look up the word inception in the dictionary, you will find this meaning - an act, process, or instance of beginning: commencement. However, for director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Night) it means something slightly different.  In 2010, he took that concept and applied it to one's subconscious mind and people's drea...

It was a sequel seven years in the making and at the time it had been the most expensive film made to date.  The visual effects surpassed everyone's expectations and when it was released on July 3, 1991, it became an instant commercial and critical success.  It utilized the latest CGI technology offering audiences something they had rarel...
