Get the Skinny on Kingsman 2: Golden Circle *SPOILERS*!

I liked the Kingsman 2 Golden Circle. No seriously I did. You won’t think so after this review though. There are spoilers ahead aplenty. The Kingsman are destroyed. Even the dog ain’t safe. All that remains are Eggsy and Merlin. They follow the “doomsday” protocol. This leads them to the United States version of the Kingsman the Statesmen. The Statesmen are all named after booze. Ha Ha. Tequila, Whiskey, Champagne (call him Champ) Ginger Ale Those cheeky Americans! If you don’t like Channing Tatum don’t worry, he has little screen…

Get the skinny on ‘DUNKIRK’!

I am a lover of history and so Dunkirk was going to be my kind of movie. The evacuation of Dunkirk was not a shining moment for the British forces militarily but it was an amazing feat in what seemed to be a hopeless situation. 125 Civilians were killed and 81 wounded in the rescue of British troops across the channel. Ten times as many troops were rescued than expected with initial estimates at 30,000, 330,000 were actually rescued. The movie itself did its best to represent and tell the…

Get the skinny on War of the Planet of the Apes *SPOILERS*!

Story by Skinny I really can’t discuss this without a ton of spoilers so be warned. What is humanity? What are the things we hold to our vest and claim as our own? Our actions define us. This is the question that is asked in War of the Planet of the Apes. Apes Together. Strong. This is a concept that the United States was founded on. We are more powerful together than as fifty (two) separate entities. When we begin to see the ending of our race as the dominant race will…

Get the skinny on Spider-Man: Homecoming!

  Spider-Man Homecoming  Spider-Man attends a homecoming dance. The end. No? OK you got me, you got me. Spider-Man: Homecoming is less of a Spider-Man movie and more of an Avengers spinoff. Tony Stark’s “son” has been set loose with a new suit. A suit that to me ruins Spider-Man. Spider-Man is what he is because he got bitten by a spider. He can walk on walls, has super strength, and web shooters that he, as a scientist, designed. In Homecoming he is given a suit with abilities that far…

Get the Skinny on Transformers: The Last Knight!

I should sit on this and let it marinate for a while, but I realized there is nothing here to marinate. Transformers the Last Knight is boring. There were no tense moments, no drama and worst of all no story.  It made zero sense. The characters were not likable or lovable even though they tried really hard to make us like them.  I like new characters, They are my favorite part of another beloved eighties franchise. I will get to that franchise in a bit. Here is what I gathered…

Get the skinny on “The Mummy” 2017!

Universal has been sitting on a goldmine for decades. The Mummy, a blatant attempt to copy the success of the Marvel Universe movies, just broke a drill bit. I saw the first trailer and was really excited for this movie, I had totally forgotten that Universal planned to relaunch what is arguably their crown jewel. The Universal Monsters. They should have just given us Tom Cruise battling a Mummy and her army. Which is about the first half of the movie. Then we met Henry, a name that should have…

Get the Skinny on ‘WONDER WOMAN’!

You know when you get that feeling at the bottom of your throat and you can’t breath and you think you are going to cry? Evocation of emotion/ My throat hurts. There are so many instances in Wonder Woman you will get that feeling your throat will hurt too. There are some pretty powerful messages in the film. Messages that when experienced by an outsider, a person not familiar with your every day cozy existence, will shake you up and make you think about some things. Wonder Woman is that…

Get The Skinny on ‘ALIEN COVENANT’!

Alien: Covenant is a mix of Alien, 2001 A space Odyssey and maybe Friday the Thirteenth. The sequel to Prometheus, be prepared to continue the tale which in Alien fashion does not bode well for the previous characters. Humans have destroyed Earth with their wasteful ways and overpopulation and are seeking a new home. A new planet to start fresh. A point made very clear in the beginning in the conversation between David and Weyland. From the beginning David shows he is almost too human, Weyland wanted a son, so…

Get the skinny on “The Circle”!

What if, all your social media platforms were rolled into one? What if, everyone could see everyone else’s every move? What if there were no secrets, no chance for governments to be corrupt? What if connectivity was the focus of your lives? You may think it is already here but it can and will get much worse. There are two things that drive humanity to extremes, two things that people seem to crave and cannot resist in some cases. Money, and power. The circle seems like a utopia. The best…

Get the Skinny on Kong Skull Island!

King Kong is a character that has appeared in movies that span several decades. From a man in a suit, a stop motion model, to today’s CGI, there is something we find interesting and compelling about the big lug. The opening of Kong makes you wonder if we are hearing the battle in the skies over the tallest building in the world.  The opening scene sets the tone for the entire film and it was done perfectly. A nice surprise that the trailers don’t spoil. Flash forward in time through…

Get the Skinny On ‘Resident Evil The Final Chapter’!

I was lost for 90 percent of the movie. Alice is called by the Red Queen to go back to the hive to get an antivirus that will destroy anything infected with a T cell. Anything. Isaacs and Wesker want to stop her. Isaacs captures Alice and…takes her to the hive. Kinda counterproductive? Alice escapes from him and hooks up with a group of survivors in Raccoon City. Strange because there are only 4200 surviving humans left on Earth and more than a dozen of them are right at the…

Get the skinny on “Sausage Party” SPOILERS

No one in the theater laughed at Sausage Party. I know because I would have heard laughter because it was pretty empty in there. We are subjected to every stereotype in the book. Racial, ethnic, religious, sexual orientation all are fair game in this romp about randy foodstuffs. There are some attempts at funny scenes which come off as just too obvious. The villain is a douche that becomes a super villain douche after he is bent and revived by eating a grape box’s..box. We get a dated joke about bath salts and…

Get the skinny on The Interview!

Banned by North Korea. Major concern caused for the safety of moviegoers all across the U.S. Tensions mount. Then it all blows over and anyone anywhere can see the film. Just released to Netflix for basically free, Netflix sent out an email letting everyone know, and yes like everyone else my curiosity got the best of me and I watched it. It was not bad. It was funny in parts. Extremely violent in other parts. It was just what I expected, except for the ending. That caught me off guard.…
