Only the Brave - Review




R: October 20th, 2017 | R: 134 minutes | R: PG-13

Only the Brave is a based on true events movie about the Granite Mountain Hotshots, elite firefighters who try to take on a historic wildfire.

Let me just start off by saying Josh Brolin and Jeff Bridges bring the rolls they played on screen to a real life idea. You will watch this movie thinking Josh Brolin was meant to be a firefighter, and you might be interested in hearing Jeff Bridges sing some country song in a bar. This movie had top notch acting all around, including the B actors, and the 'I don't know that person' actors.

Now I have to mention that Miles Teller is in this movie, I guess he's still a hot actor in Hollywood right now, that everyone is wanting him in a movie. Now, Miles Teller is a good actor, and he's good in this movie too, but, I feel like right now, he's a little overrated. He's being reused too much, where you might not want him to be in a role of this drama, when you might want an actor with more than one side.

The final answer is you should see this movie. I would see this on the big screen, although there are slow parts during the movie, they just give you time to head out for a refill or a bathroom break, just don't miss the action on the screen, when it's on screen, it's quick, but something you will be depressed you missed.

Make sure you stay through the credits, they show you real footage of the firemen from the Granite Mountain Hotshots, you won't want to miss it.

Rating: 3 out of 5

The Snowman - Review





R: October 20th, 2017 | R: 119 minutes | R: R

Elite Crime Detective Harry Hole (Played by Michael Fassbender) is the best in his field. But after not working on a case for a while and falling into an alcohol addiction, he gets pulled into a new case teaming up with detective Katrine Bratt (Played by Rebecca Ferguson). All because a serial killer starts attacking again, with the disappearance of a new victim. But this time he is leaving snowmen at all of his murder locations.

This film is directed by Tomas Alfredson (Who previously directed “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” and “Let the Right One In”) and stars Michael Fassbender (Previously seen in “12 Years a Slave” and “X-Men: First Class”) as well as Rebecca Ferguson (Previously seen in “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation” and “Life”). And wow, with all the hype this movie was very disappointing. To start the performances were very forgettable. Not dreadful...just forgettable. And there were so many unnecessary characters that only added confusion to the film. Especially Val Kilmer's and J.K. Simmons's characters. With all the characters it just clogged up the movie and lost the audience. Speaking of losing the audience, the story had so many subplots that nothing was happening. I mean stuff was happening, but it did not affect the central plot. It was very slow moving, overly complicated and overwhelming. The cinematography was also very bland to look at. The vibe was also very odd. It was cheesy at points, but then again astsy. It really was just weird.

Overall do not have much to say about this disappointing film. I mean sure it had its moments, but the flaws majorly outshined the positive elements going for it. It is such a cram packed film with way too many characters and subplots. It honestly left me with so many questions as to what I watched and straight up bored me. This just shows that adapting a best selling book to a film does not always translate. I am not going to recommend anyone to see “The Snowman”.

Rating: 2 out of 5

SUBURBICON Advance Screening Passes!



Do you want to see SUBURBICON before anyone else? Learn how you can see an Advance Screening to see it before anyone else.

Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns…the perfect place to raise a family, and in the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that. But the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) must navigate the town’s dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence. This is a tale of very flawed people making very bad choices. This is Suburbicon.
