Escape Room (2019) – Movie Review

Six strangers. Seven different rooms all capable of providing severe maiming or instant death. Sounds like the latest in the Saw franchise, yes? Welcome to Escape Room, which is, essentially, “Saw-lite” for the PG-13 crowd. Minus the gore, swearing, and the excessively-green-tinted photography, Escape Room comes off genuinely heart-palpitating, with more than its share of […]

The Fate of the Furious

Buckle up, kids. A new Fast and Furious movie skids its way into theaters this weekend, and ain’t nothin’ changed – this eighth installment in the franchise doesn’t let off the gas one bit.

This film should’ve […]

Fast & Furious 6

This review does not contain spoilers from “Fast Five,” which I highly recommend you rent first. Also, please excuse me for any automobile-related puns. “Fast & Furious 6” requires your suspension of disbelief, not your analysis. It’s an exercise in sheer spectacle, bigger and badder than the last film. Sure, it’s everything a summer blockbuster […]

Furious 6

(If you read nothing else of this review, know this: do not leave the theater until the credits start rolling up the screen.) It’s pretty hard to up the ante and the game from one sequel to the next. However, Furious 6 (also known as Fast & Furious 6) director Justin Lin manages to do […]
