Thor: Ragnorak is a SMASHING good time!

HULK SMASH! I do love that line…   this was by far the best Thor movie by far.  It really takes the best parts of last couple of Marvel movies and puts them together.  Think all the humor of Guardians of the Galaxy spliced with the off beat comedy of Thor. I really loved this movie and highly recommend it for any adult, my son Marc who is 9 was laughing a good bit of the movie and cheered at the fight scenes but there is a body count in this movie, so please think twice about bringing children under 7 to seeing this movie. ...  [ read more ]

Rogue One a Star Wars Story is the best stars wars movie yet!

Now if you loved Star Wars growing up this will be the film that you’ve waited for… if you are a purist and said 1,2,3 werent for me… then this is it… its right on tone with the original 4,5,6.  Without giving too many spoilers (I’ll try to keep this spoiler free).  This story is the backstory to how the Rebels come to be, how they come to learn about the death star, and get the plans to the death star. ...  [ read more ]

doctorstrange570e9be033a1aThe best superhero movie of the year, Marvel’s DOCTOR STRANGE is finally playing in theatres everywhere! This is the latest chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a movie that must be seen on the big screen, but I highly recommend seeing it in IMAX 3D.  The 3D effects are some of the best I’ve ever seen in movie. ...  [ read more ]

Disney’s The Jungle Book is a swinging good time!

Go see Jungle Book as soon as you can. This live-action-CG hybrid, directed by Jon Favreau, makes the story of Mowgli, the surviving human boy, raised by wolves in the jungle, hunted by the meanest tiger, guided by the panther, finding the big bouncy bear, scared by the python and the giant ape, a real life adventure filled with our own fears, our own humor, and a couple of songs that we remember. Rudyard Kipling will be read again by a new generation who go to see this movie and want to see more of his stories.   Co-starring Bill Murray, Christopher Walken, Ben Kingsley, Scarlett Johansson, and Lupita Nyong’o and starring Neel Sethi as Mowgli, and thousands of CG artists, this is a must see movie for one and all. The adventure of the boy who becomes a man, the family who loves, the competitors who know to live in peace, the respect for elephants and the ecology, and the evil that creates obstacles to the desires of the characters we follow, all create a story that once you see, you’ll want to see again. Disney, using it’s Jim Henson division, and technologies that keep improving makes this story the closest we’ve seen to cross live animation and live action.
