Kong: Skull Island

kong

Well, people that like seeing a giant monkey destroy helicopters are gonna love this one.

Kong: Skull Island is about an expedition to explore a previously uncharted island during the Vietnam war era. Obviously things don’t go quite as planned, because why would they when you do something stupid like go to an island shaped like a skull that is constantly surrounded by storms?  They encounter a bunch of unimaginable monsters, one of them being King Kong.

Dr. Strange Movie Review

dr strange

I avoided seeing Dr. Strange in theaters because I was a little tired of superhero origin stories because they are pretty much all the same. Plus this one looked a little too odd and just not very interesting to me. But thanks to Redbox, I gave it a shot now. And it turns out this superhero origin story is… pretty much the same as all the other superhero origin stories.

2017 Oscar Predictions

And share the money please.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Movie Review

jack-reacher-2

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a movie so completely average. Not good, not terrible. Just exists. Kind of like this blog.

Jack Reacher Never Go Back is the sequel to the underrated Jack Reacher. This time Reacher must work to unravel a conspiracy and save a fellow solider from being framed. Or something like that. It’s kind of hard to follow to be honest.
