Friday (Movie) Review: Spiderman: Homecoming

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars Okay, yes, I am still catching up on some of the MCU movies. I've seen the direct Avengers series in the theater, as well as a few of the others (like Ragnorak), but some of the others I didn't catch while they were still in the movies houses. So, I'm … Continue reading Friday (Movie) Review: Spiderman: Homecoming

Friday (Movie) Review: Captain Marvel

My rating: 4 stars The following review may contains some mild spoilers. Nothing major (I don't think) but if you prefer to go in with a completely blank slate, you might want to skip reading the whole post. In a nutshell: It was good. You should go see it! Finally got to see Captain Marvel … Continue reading Friday (Movie) Review: Captain Marvel

Friday (Movies) Review: Hunter Killer and Shattered

We watched these two Gerard Butler movies recently. Hunter Killer is the more recent of the two, released in 2018. Shattered (originally titled Butterfly on a Wheel) is from 2007. They are very different movies, so I am not going to try to compare them. I'll just give a few thoughts. Hunter Killer: ( 2.5 stars) This is your basic military … Continue reading Friday (Movies) Review: Hunter Killer and Shattered

Friday (Movie) Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is another of the fill-in sort of stories we've been seeing in the Star Wars universe the last few years.

Friday (Movie) Review: Spectre

My rating: 3 stars In this fourth outing for Daniel Craig as the world's superest super spy, we are given what is supposed to be, I suppose, SPECTRE's origin story.

Friday (Movie) Review: Bright

My rating: 3 stars Bright was a 2017 Netflix film that starred Will Smith as veteran LA police officer Daryl Ward and Joel Edgerton as rookie orcish office Nick Jakoby. It is set in Los Angeles, but here, the city is a blend of humans, orcs, elves, and dwarves who live together in a sort of … Continue reading Friday (Movie) Review: Bright

Friday (Movie) Review: Jurassic Park: The Mega-Watch

We were shopping at BJ's Wholesale club a couple weeks ago, and they had a bin of sale DVDs. We looked through them, and found all of the Jurassic Park movies (except, of course, the one that just came out). We bought them. Hey, for $5 each, why not? And, of course, then we had … Continue reading Friday (Movie) Review: Jurassic Park: The Mega-Watch

Friday Review: Reviewing My Review Process

I've been doing these Friday reviews for a while now. The ones here date back to 2013, and I was doing some reviews on my old blog site before that. Since everyone approaches reviews differently, I thought I would take a few minutes today to outline how I rate and review the things I do. … Continue reading Friday Review: Reviewing My Review Process

Friday (Movie) Review: Avengers: Infinity War

We finally got to see it this week. I will try to make this as spoiler free as I can, but if you haven't seen it yet, and have managed to avoid knowing even the broad strokes that everyone knew before it opened (like if you have avoided watching the trailers, etc.), stop here. I … Continue reading Friday (Movie) Review: Avengers: Infinity War
