Phoenix Forgotten had capable leads an intriguing story about the mysterious Phoenix lights sightings but it lead to nowhere thrilling, exciting and scary. It didn't dig deep enough to the topic involved and wasn't memorable enough to stand out from the other found footage films of its kind. It will unfortunately be forgotten. 5.5 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!!!!!!

Poltergeist



Poltergeist-poster

Directed by: Gil Kenan
Written by: David Lindsay-Abaire
Cast: Sam Rockwell, Jared Harris, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jane Adams, Nicholas Braun
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: A family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces must come together to rescue their youngest daughter after the apparitions take her captive.

Review:

The new Poltergeist started off fine and a little promising with a just as likable new family. The director and crew however seem to have given up midway through the film and delivered horrible CGI and a rushed and lame finale that made me roll my eyes.

This unfortunately ended up being a very lazy and uninspired remake that was far less frightening and iconic as the original which was PG by the way!!!! For a horror movie that was released back in 1982 to have superior and more effective special effects compared to a 2015 version is pretty damn pathetic!

I wouldn't say it's the worst horror remake I've seen but I could tell they didn't even try with all their might to make it effective either and that is just lazy.

Poltergeist 2015 is a scare free, misfire and an embarrassing sloth of an effort. Avoid and just watch the original classic which they should of just re-released in 3D than release this safe attempt. 5.9 out of 10

I'm going to watch the remake of my all time favorite horror movie Poltergeist tomorrow! I know for sure it isn't going to top the original in any way, but I have faith in the director and cast that the film will at least be decent. My fingers are crossed!

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron was entertaining when it came to its characters interaction with each other, but I was somewhat let down by the film. It's definitely a step down from the insanely enjoyable predecessor, this one just wasn't that thrilling in comparison and had no real moments of surprise or wow factor to it. 6.9 out of 10

A Most Violent Year



Most_violent_year_quad

Directed by: J.C. Chandor
Written by: J.C. Chandor
Cast: Jessica Chastain, Oscar Isaac, Albert Brooks
Studio: A24
Genre: Drama, Independent
Official Site: www.newyorkcity1981.com
Plot: In New York City 1981, an ambitious immigrant fights to protect his business and family during the most dangerous year in the city's history.

Review:

A Most Violent Year was sort of a let down. The performances from Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac were great but I had a hard time getting into the movie until halfway through when things started to pick up. The film didn't grab me emotionally and to me it's kind of like American Hustle without the personality, and that song they play at the end credits was bloody awful. I really thought I was going to love this film but the end results was just decent, nothing more or less. Wait for Redbox. 6.9 out of 10

Kingsman: The Secret Service



Kingsman-foreign

Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
Written by: Matthew Vaughn
Cast: Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine, Sofia Boutella, Corey Johnson, Taron Egerton
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comic Book
Official Site:
Plot: A spy organization recruits an unrefined, but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program, just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Review:

Kingsman: The Secret Service was a bloody good time at the movies! Not as solid as Matthew Vaughn's previous film but just as funny, clever and entertaining as Kick-Ass. 7 out of 10

These Final Hours



These_final_hours_poster

Directed by: Zak Hilditch
Written by: Zak Hilditch
Cast: Sarah Snook, Jessica De Gouw, Nathan Phillips
Studio:
Genre: Drama, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A self-obsessed young man makes his way to the party-to-end-all-parties on the last day on Earth, but ends up saving the life of a little girl searching for her father. Their relationship ultimately leads him on the path to redemption.

Review:

These Final Hours was depressing, touching, terrifying and is one of the most striking end of the world flicks I've seen in a while. I probably won't watch it again but there was definitely a lot of talent in front and behind the camera to warrant a recommendation. 7.5 out of 10

It Follows



It-follows-poster

Directed by: David Robert Mitchell
Written by: David Robert Mitchell
Cast: Maika Monroe
Studio: RADiUS-TWC
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: A young woman is followed by an unknown supernatural force after getting involved in a sexual encounter.

Review:

It Follows was a very strange and creepy little movie that delivered mounting dread.

The soundtrack was great and has a likable lead actress, my problem is that it is nowhere near as terrifying as everyone says it is and no it's not the best horror movie in years, not by a long shot.

The film just had no thrilling energy to it and I was bored by the story that lacked explanation and it had zero scares in it, just weird grotesque images of random, naked demon like stalkers, it's more nasty than terrifying.

The most decent part in the whole movie will have to be the indoor pool scene, which kind of had me on the edge of my seat.

Overall It Follows isn't worth following and to me it's one of the most overrated horror films I think I've ever seen on the big screen, what was I thinking when I signed a petition for this dull movie in disguise of a thrilling one.

Man I'm bummed because I thought this was going to be the next big thing in the horror genre. 5 out of 10 wait for Redbox

Furious 7



Furious-7-poster-3

Directed by: James Wan
Written by:
Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Ronda Rousey, Elsa Pataky, Lucas Black, Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges
Studio: Universal Pictures
Genre:
Official Site:
Plot: Deckard Shaw seeks revenge against Dominic Toretto and his family for his comatose brother.

Review:

Furious 7 is the best Fast and Furious film since Fast Five! The film was a complete adrenaline rush from beginning to end that it makes the 137 minutes running time go by in a flash, I still didn't want it to end!

At the same time it was a bittersweet conclusion to Paul Walker's career, that it makes you have a lump in your throat throughout the film knowing his real life fate. The film does give a very touching and fitting tribute/salute to Paul Walker at the end of the film, it was the perfect send-off .

If this is the last film in the series, which it might as well be, then it's one hell of a cap off to a franchise that just never failed at entertaining us and strapped us on a thrilling ride that started its ignition over a decade ago and always improved with each twists and turns it takes. Bravo!
