Review – Making Dad Proud (“The Kid Who Would Be King”)

The apple don’t fall far from the tree as 14-year-old Louis Ashbourne Serkis makes his big screen debut as the lead in a movie that looks uniquely Disney, but is 20th Century Fox. Does his name sound familiar? It should. That’s because his dad is actor, director, and mo-cap master, Andy “my precious” Serkis of LOTR…

Review – M. Night Shatters Glass Ceiling (“Glass”)

Where are the Avengers when you really need them? If you’ve been keeping up with M. Night Shyamalan’s movies (and who hasn’t), you’ll know this is part three of his ‘comic book’ trilogy.

Review – The Buzz is Good (“Bumblebee”)

Michael “blow something up” Bay says he wants to give us origin movies on every single Transformer character now?? Say it ain’t so, Mike!! I can deal with movies about the individual X-Men superheros, the Star Wars population, and even the entire MCU, but the Transformers? However, if the movie’s are THIS good… maybe it’ll…
