Review: Girls Trip

PLOT: Four longtime friends who haven't seen each other in a while head to New Orleans to party at the Essence Festival. Predictably, things get sloppy in a hurry. REVIEW: I laughed quite a bit during GIRLS TRIP, which might indeed be the funniest comedy of the year so far. It is ribald and inappropriate in the extreme, boasting at least one sequence that is indescribable...

TV Review: Game of Thrones, Season 7, Episode 1 "Dragonstone"

EPISODE 1: Dragonstone PLOT: In the Season 7 premiere, Jon organizes the defense of the North; Cersei seeks to even the odds; and Daenerys comes home. THE LOWDOWN (SPOILERS!): And we're back! Ah, the wait for more Game of Thrones always feels like such a long one, but ever so welcome when it returns. After a rather cathartic season six in which we saw the conclusion...

Season 3, Episode 6 : Red Dirt PLOT : Things get tense between residents of Broke Jaw Ranch as they prepare to be invaded by outside forces.

Review: The Big Sick

PLOT: A struggling comedian's ex-girlfriend contracts a mysterious illness and winds up in a coma, forcing him to confront her parents and his own feelings for his one-time love. REVIEW: THE BIG SICK is one of the most genuinely affecting romantic comedies I've seen in a long while. Granted, it's not necessarily my genre of choice, but a really good one can...

Review: 47 Meters Down

PLOT: Two sisters find themselves trapped in a shark cage at the bottom of the ocean with little to no hope for survival. REVIEW: 47 METERS DOWN is simplicity defined, about as bare bones as you can get, and when it works, it works. No, it won't be recognized as one of the great shark movies of all time (although how many great ones are there really?), and it doesn't...

Review: Rough Night

PLOT: The fun times of a group of longtime friends who've gotten together for a bachelorette party in Miami come to an end when they must deal with a shocking accident. REVIEW: ROUGH NIGHT feels just like what it is: a watered down, studio-mandated version of a supremely promising movie. There's a really morbidly dark, funny movie living within it that itches to get...

Review: Wonder Woman

Read JimmyO's take HERE ! I went into WONDER WOMAN with some trepidation. My excitement for the film has been high, especially after getting a look at a few of the scenes earlier in the year. It showed promise, but I wasn't overwhelmed that it would be able to pull it off completely. After all, the last two DCEU films took a hell of a beating by critics and fans alike...

Review: The Lost City of Z

PLOT: A dramatization of real-life explorer Percy Fawcett's 20-year effort to find a lost civilization deep in the jungles of the Amazon during the early part of the 20th Century. REVIEW: "The jungle is hell, but one kind of likes it." That above quote is given by a character in James Gray 's THE LOST CITY OF Z and it may do the best job of summing up...
