It’s definitely a sturdy film. Let’s just cut to the chase. Go and see The Lego Movie. Doesn’t matter if you have kids or not; this is a movie that everyone can enjoy. And if you do have kids, then you won’t look like a creep sitting alone in the dark. Honestly, I think The […]

Should have let these sleeping dogs lie. Red has always been one of those movies that I find myself compelled to stop and watch whenever it’s on, and to this day it’s one of my favorite films based on a comic book. It’s too bad I can’t say the same for the sequel, which is […]

Or: You made a bad movie, Madea. As uncomfortable as it might seem to think, Tyler Perry has become a film icon. But in Alex Cross he finds himself taking over a role that was made famous by another, much better film icon, Morgan Freeman. The only problem is Perry doesn’t have the chops to […]
