Review – Transformers: The Last Knight

Michael Bay’s (apparently) final Transformers movie was a marvel of special effects and glorious, beautiful explosions. A lot of people really didn’t like it.
Guest columnist Narrator26 weighs in.

Michael Bay’s latest installment into his much-maligned Transformers series rolled out this past weekend to serve yet another overlong feast of bloated robot mayhem. And with Bay finally vacating the director’s chair after this entry, one might be forgiven for thinking that he would try to go out on a high of sorts; predictably though, that’s not the case.

Review – Despicable Me 3

By guest columnist k.e.n.n.y.h.

Ha ha, I like it. Not a lot….I don’t like it…

Psych! I liked it.

Illumination has given us their fourth film in the Gru-iverse (that may not be a thing, but you heard it here first) with Despicable Me 3 – The Redemption of the Minions (…okay, I made up the second part, but it’s strangely accurate.)

Review: My Cousin Rachel

I saw the press screening of My Cousin Rachel last night and I can’t quit thinking about this movie. Based on the novel of the same name by Daphne du Maurier, the movie starts out telling us the story of a young Phillip Ashley, played by Sam Calflin. He was raised by his cousin after his parents’ death. As an adult Philip returned to his home after attending school. His cousin because ill and moved to the “sunshine” country to get away from the harsh winters of England. In Italy, he met Rachel. Rachel is beautiful, smart and not necessarily the person you think she is.

Review: Wonder Woman

After years of waiting and many attempts Wonder Woman has finally gotten a big budget movie. After an appearance in the massively lackluster Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice last year, WB/DC finally got itself a hit with a good film. Only took four tries. But hey maybe “fourth time’s a charm” is the new three. What could have been another disappointing disaster ends up being one great comic book movie. From start to finish this is the movie fans have been waiting for.

Thoughts on the Dirty Dancing Remake

By guest writer Emily A. Filmore.

My 11-year-old daughter, Sage, and I watched the 2017 ABC remake of Dirty Dancing. While I think it is a good attempt to revive an old classic, I spent the entire three hours mourning the incomparable Patrick Swayze and comparing the whole casts’ dance skills, the cinematography, and yes, the storyline to my beloved original; she thinks it was a fun, cute movie, and really enjoyed the singing. I was exactly Sage’s age when the original came out, so this was great timing; it was one of the first adult movies I ever watched…and in 1987 me getting to see two people kiss on the lips was quite a racy event! Today, Sage has seen much more than this on network television, so nothing about the movie shocked her.
