The Dark Knight (2008)

Short Movie Review

Bigger and Better than Batman Begins in every way; more extremely well developed characters, more action, and more twists. Heath Ledger performs the best character of all time with The Joker. "This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object".

Batman Begins (2005)

Short Movie Review

Christopher Nolan brings a new version of Batman to the screen; darker, more realistic, and edgier then previous versions. Action that makes sense mixed with a hero's growth; we witness the defining of Batman's character. The music and the performances add to the excellence of this movie.

Riddick (2013)

Short Movie Review

Pitch Black part II. Riddick on the run, vicious alien carnivores that only come out in the rain, and a bounty hunter named Johns. Science Fiction with an emphasis on Action.

The Foreigner (2017)

Short Movie Review

A revenge movie with Jackie Chan on a rampage. Chan proves that he can do more than his own stunts and portrays a grieving veteran who will stop at nothing to avenge his daughter's death.

The Dark Tower (2017)

Short Movie Review

A great epic story reduced in size and scope to fit into one movie and loses much of it's character and heart. Characters that are not completely developed fight for a world that is a shadow of itself. Plot points lost in the effort of creating an action movie from a drama.

Central Intelligence (2016)

Short Movie Review

A buddy cop comedy with intrigue and deception. Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson are the exact opposites for their high school selves and it works.

Alien: Covenant (2017)

Short Movie Review

On a colony building mission the number one rule is to protect the colonists, not investigating an unknown signal. The creation of life can lead to death. Androids are not to be trusted.

Blade Runner (1982)

Short Movie Review

A film noir detective movie without the detecting. Beautiful cinematography with a slow pace and horrible voice over but, lacking substance.

Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

Short Movie Review

People think they can control what Transformers are made of.

Megatron has different ideas.

Lots of effects, lots of explosions, and Stanley Tucci means another stupid, entertaining movie.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

Short Movie Review

How many explosions can fit into a movie with no real plot?

How many times can robots save the Earth from robots?

At least one more entertaining CGI heavy time.
