Star Trek Beyond

Author’s note: this review, like the movie itself, is dedicated to the lives of Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin. Everyone knows the Star Trek film curse: the odd-numbered Prime (read: William Shatner era) Star Trek films fell short of their intended reception, while the even-numbered films were the best of the series. So far, the Kelvin […]

10 Cloverfield Lane

Paramount Pictures and producer J. J. Abrams blew minds away in January 2016 when they attached the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane to fellow Paramount film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” has more than  its share of clever ideas and death-defying stunts. Even before the opening credits, star Tom Cruise, consistently narrowing the divide between himself and the super spy that he’s portraying, clings to the side of a cargo plane as it makes a rather abrupt ascent from takeoff.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

(This review was originally published on December 25, 2011 at The Rogers Revue) The collaboration of director J.J. Abrams and Tom Cruise in 2006′s “Mission:Impossible III” marked a vast improvement over John Woo’s awkwardly trendy, over-stylized sequel six years prior. Also referred to as ‘Me:Too’, Woo’s crossover effort seemed self-indulgent for Cruise and unnaturally trigger-happy for the series, […]
