Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

Overall Rating: 1/5 March 23, 2016 Dir. Zack Snyder Rated PG-13 (for intense sequences of violence and action throughout, and some sensuality) I think this one’s still ranked at the bottom of my 2016 list of films. This was bad…very bad. It’s hard to tell exactly who is responsible for the poor story-telling here, but Snyder did […]

Doctor Strange

Overall Rating: 3/5 November 4, 2016 Dir. Scott Derrickson Rated PG-13 (for sci-fi violence and action throughout, and an intense crash sequence) Doctor Strange is a solidly entertaining blockbuster that smartly utilizes its budget to create some awesome visuals.

Eye in The Sky

Overall Rating: 4/5 April 1, 2016 Dir. Gavin Hood Rated R (for some violence images and language) Eye in the Sky places the moral dilemmas of modern warfare as well as modern governments’ handling of such front and center stage.

Overall Rating: 2/5 October 14, 2016 Dir. Gavin O’Connor Rated R (for strong violence and language throughout) The Accountant was a guilty pleasure for me. At a certain point in the film, things just start to get worse and worse, but I have to admit that it is entertaining throughout. Its premise will grab your attention (at […]

Jason Bourne

Overall Rating: 2/5 July 29, 2016 Dir. Paul Greengrass Rated PG-13 (for intense sequences of violence and action, and brief strong language) I am a huge fan of the original Bourne Trilogy, so the simply titled Jason Bourne was one of my most anticipated action films of 2016. With Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass back at work […]

X-Men: Apocalypse

Overall Rating: 2/5 May 27, 2016 Dir. Bryan Singer Rated PG-13 (for sequences of violence, action and destruction, brief strong language and some suggestive images) Singer’s Apocalypse is full of action and ridiculousness (mostly the good kind). Enough to entertain most fans of the series and of superhero films in general, but this installment in […]

Suicide Squad

Overall Rating: 1/5 August 5, 2016 Dir. David Ayer Rated PG-13 (for sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, suggestive content and language) It’s very unfortunate that these great ideas for superhero films are so poorly executed. This is a perfect example of a concept getting shredded to tatters by big producers. There is, without […]
