The Lost City of Z definitely left me wanting more but the craftsmanship displayed onscreen cannot be denied and is definitely award worthy. The story is a mysterious one with no resolution, a riveting journey to the unknown that seemed doomed from the start, Percy Fawcett was definitely a fascinating and brave soul and a explorer filled with courage and perseverance. It's a shame that we may never know what happened to him and his son and if they ever made it to Z. 7 out of 10

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation was a very entertaining and smart thriller with Tom Cruise still in top form. This new entry though unfortunately doesn't surpass the amazing Ghost Protocol and the series at this point seems to be losing its freshness. I also thought it was a tad overlong, but it did have exciting chase scenes and an impressive cast but it just didn't knock my socks off as much as the previous entry. It is though far more impressive than most summer blockbusters and it's worth seeing on the big screen. 7.5 out of 10

The Gallows



The-gallows-poster

Directed by: Chris Lofing
Written by: Chris Lofing
Cast: Cassidy Gifford
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: 20 years after a horrific accident during a small town school play, students at the school resurrect the failed show in a misguided attempt to honor the anniversary of the tragedy - but soon discover that some things are better left alone.

Review:

The Gallows is found footage for dummies!! The film starts off with footage of an old video recording from 1993 of a high school play called The Gallows, everything seems to be going fine when all of a sudden the noose prop malfunctions and kills one of the actors as a result, the helpless, chilling scene shows that it was all too late to save the victim...[more]...

Terminator: Genisys



Tg-spoilery-poster-gallery

Directed by: Alan Taylor
Written by:
Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jai Courtney, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Byung-hun Lee, Sandrine Holt, Michael Gladis, Matt Smith, J.K. Simmons
Studio: Paramount
Genre: Action, Science-Fiction
Official Site:
Plot: John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect Sarah Connor, but when he arrives in 1984, nothing is as he expected it to be.

Review:

Terminator Genisys was entertaining from beginning to end and is a solid summer popcorn movie. The special effects were great even though it's nothing that we haven't seen before, but thrilling none the less.

It was great to see Arnold back and playing his iconic character and is still bad ass at it! Jai Courtney and Emilia Clarke make capable leads and a likable duo worth rooting for.

Overall it's a whole lot better than what critics made it out to be and if you followed the series from the beginning and even loved the underrated television series that got wrongfully axed, which I'm still mad about, then you will probably enjoy Terminator Genisys like I did and I still think that this franchise still has life in it after all. 7.5 Out of 10

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension looks disappointing already, not scary and overstuffed, but it still could be fun. Hell I didn't think that The Marked Ones was going to deliver and I was dead wrong, so I really hope that this series is going to go out with a bang!

Jaws



Jaws-poster

Directed by: Steven Spielberg
Written by: Peter Benchley, Carl Gottlieb
Cast: Richard Dreyfuss, Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider, Carl Gottlieb
Studio: Universal
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: When a gigantic great white shark begins to menace the small island community of Amity, a police chief, a marine scientist and grizzled fisherman set out to stop it.

Review:

It was neat to see Jaws on the big screen for the first time, it was like seeing a brand new movie and it looked great!

The effects are dated which made it more entertaining than scary this time around compared to when I first saw it as a kid. The cast of characters and the script made the movie though with memorable and iconic lines that is still great till this day.

The music score is still just as chilling and brilliant that makes the suspense scenes all the more unsettling especially with the unforgettable opening kill.

Overall, Jaws is showing its age but it is still unforgettable when it comes to suspense, character, story and an unbeatable sound score that will still send shivers down your spine. Spielberg and crew rocked this! I just wish that he can go back to this and his Duel days and give us another suspense thriller.

Inside_out_ver2

Directed by: Pete Docter
Written by: Pete Docter

Genre: Animation, Comedy, Family
Official Site:
Plot: After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness - conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Review:

Inside Out is the best movie I've seen this year so far! It was clever, moving, laugh out loud funny, charming and colorfully animated, I loved it!

This is the type of film that deserves to be nominated for best picture. Bravo to the cast and crew for delivering the goods and congratulations Pixar you have another modern classic on your hands!

Jurassic World



Jw-prattposter-gallery

Directed by: Colin Trevorrow
Written by: Rick Jaffa
Cast: Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D'Onofrio, Omar Sy, B.D. Wong, Jake Johnson, Irrfan Khan, Chris Pratt, Idris Elba
Studio: Universal
Genre: Action, Adventure, Science-Fiction
Official Site:
Plot: Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor's interest, which backfires horribly.

Review:

Jurassic World is definitely the most polished of all of the Jurassic films and sported a fantastic finale, that pterodactyl attack was brutal! This is pure spectacle though nothing more or less, the ideas still seem to be there but the wonder, and the heart and suspense are missing here.

This film is overstuffed with characters with not enough back-story follow through, the cheesy and weak screenplay didn't help matters either. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are a welcoming onscreen presence and make a great team and have nice chemistry.

Director Colin Trevorrow who directed the extremely enjoyable Safety Not Guaranteed handled his first summer blockbuster like a pro as this film looked fantastic!

Overall Jurassic World is the grandest of all the Jurassic sequels and perhaps the most brutal and thrilling but once you've been wowed the first time with Jurassic Park it's hard to get that same feeling back knowing already what to expect from this world. This series is far from dead though because the pure excitement, adventure and escapism is still there and can't wait for the next trip to this world. Work on a better script though because this was pure cheese and not the good kind. 7 out of 10

Spy



Spy-melissa-newt-gallery

Directed by: Paul Feig
Written by: Paul Feig
Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Zach Woods
Studio: Fox
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.

Review:

Spy is Melissa McCarthy's best comedic performance since Bridesmaids! The film has a great supporting cast; entertaining action scenes and a witty script that lets Melissa McCarthy shine her brightest.

Director Paul Feig might have not delivered an as consistently funny comedy as Bridesmaids or even the underrated The Heat, but this is proof that Paul and Melissa are a match made in comedy heaven.

Overall, Spy might be a tad overlong with unnecessary chase scenes that dragged the film and is overrated, also not as funny as Paul's previous efforts, but Paul and Melissa are definitely the best comedic team working today! Can't wait for Paul's next effort, Ghostbusters! 7.5 Out of 10

Insidious: Chapter 3



Insidious-chapter-3-poster-3

Directed by: Leigh Whannell
Written by:
Cast: Dermot Mulroney
Studio: Focus Features
Genre:
Official Site:
Plot: A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.

Review:

Insidious: Chapter 3 was a surprisingly decent addition to the franchise, even though it didn't really expand upon the formula and stayed in a comfortable spot. But as a result the filmmakers played on the series original strengths and delivered the effective jolts we want and expect.

The performances were decent but not as solid as the original cast family but still very decent for a third outing. Actress Lin Shaye is the heart and soul of this film and delivers yet another solid performance as psychic Elise Rainier.

Overall Insidious: Chapter 3 will please fans of the series but won't win any new ones, because even though it's a prequel it still has the same vibe and scare tactics as the first two. No surprises here but still a very creepy and fun third outing. If they make a fourth one, which I hope they do, they need to throw something refreshing and even more terrifying into the mix to reignite the series instead of staying in a comfortable spot.

I'm really happy to hear that the long awaited shark film Meg is moving forward at Warner Bros. I hope it's under good hands. Now if they could only get The Devil In The White City off the ground too, that has been in talks for years now!

San Andreas



San-andreas-poster-3

Directed by: Brad Peyton
Written by: Allan Loeb
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Giamatti, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, Kylie Minogue
Studio: New Line Cinema
Genre: Adventure
Official Site:
Plot: In the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his daughter.

Review:

San Andreas is one of the most intense disaster flicks I've seen in awhile and has fantastic special effects that make the IMAX 3D price worth it.

Sure the script isn't the best and doesn't add anything all that new that we haven't seen before but the cast was likable and did their best of what they had to work with, and were worth rooting for. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson carries the film well and this is his best starring role yet, the supporting actors were also decent including Paul Giamatti, Carla Gugino and Alexandra Daddario.

To me the action scenes were heart pounding and even more unsettling that it's not far from reality with the devastating earthquake in Nepal.

Overall San Andreas is a heart pounding disaster flick with better than average special effects that's pretty close up there with the classic disaster films of the past. The script isn't special and doesn't bring anything new to the genre which holds it back, but with The Rock coming to the rescue and the likable supporting cast makes this a summer popcorn movie worth seeing.

Another note is Sia's version of California Dreamin is brilliant and should do soundtracks for every film now, amazing vocal talent! 8.5 Out of 10

Mad Max: Fury Road is the best action film of the season and I don't think anything is going to top it this summer! A near modern classic and can't wait for more entries even though Mel Gibson is a better Mad Max than Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron basically stole the show in this one, she is such a sexy badass!!!!! I will buy this one!!! 8.5 out of 10!!!!!!
