“Honey Boy” brilliant story written and starring Shia LaBeouf

As most of you know, I am finishing up my junior year in college and I recently subscribed to Amazon Prime (feat. student discount!) and found this Amazon Studio’s film Honey Boy, directed by Alma Har’el, written by and starring Shia Labeouf. LaBeouf originally wrote the script as a form of therapy while in rehab…

Peanut Butter Falcon: an uplifting story of brotherhood

I took a break from scary movies, watching a little-known dramedy entitled “Peanut Butter Falcon”. I was literally like with this title, I have zero clue what this movie is even going to be about. But reading the film synopsis: “a young man with down syndrome escapes from an assisted living facility and befriends a…

“It Comes at Night” a waste of my night

Continuing the trend of horror genre films for the month of October, I found the 2017 horror independent film “It Comes at Night” was available on Netflix.

“The Invisible Man” a thrilling tale from start to finish

I have been waiting to see The Invisible Man since March when it was slated to be in theaters, and right when it was released and we planned to go see it, COVID-19 shut down all theaters across the country. The movie was released within weeks at home for rent through Vudu/On Demand for the…

Secret Life of Pets 2 even cuter the second time around

I have a soft spot for feel-good animated movies. Most of the time they combine comedy with a heart felt message of sorts. You laugh, you cry and you wonder why “you enjoyed a baby movie”. I have so many favorites that never get old. Most of my favorites are Pixar, that almost always make…

“Spenser Confidential” action packed Netflix film theater-worthy

Netflix has been stepping their game up ever since BirdBox signing on big name actors for Netflix-only productions. “Spenser Confidential” is no different, featuring an all-star cast of Mark Wahlberg, Winston Duke, Bokeem Woodbine and first film appearance by rapper Post Malone. This movie could be considered action/comedy and I personally feel like had all…

Netflix original “A Whisker Away” makes 2020 less awful

Fun Fact: I love Studio Ghibli films! If you’re unaware of what they are, they’re a production company responsible for such anime favorites as Spirited Away, Ponyo, Kiki’s Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro and one of my personal favorites: The Cat Returns. They have a specific style of animation to them that usually gives away…

“Child’s Play” remake gives Chucky 21st century upgrade

When I was a child, I was introduced to the horror genre at a young age. I remember watching Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Jeepers Creepers, Scream, among other slashers all before my 10th birthday. The ONLY one that ever scared me or gave me nightmares was Chucky, the evil doll from Child’s Play. I…
