Ticket to Paradise...This movie really was one!

  George Clooney and Julia Roberts are reunited on screen again in the new romantic comedy Ticket to Paradise . Mr. Cotton and Ms. Cotton are a long-divorced couple who cannot stand to be in the same room together. They set their grievances aside to team up and stop their daughter (Kaitlyn Dever) from repeating history and getting married too young. What follows is The Good, The Bad, and The Spoilers of  Ticket to Paradise . The Good The on-screen chemistry between Clooney and Roberts is golden. Their ability to play off one another makes the “Bickering Exe” relationship very believable. No matter the scene or atmosphere, they are able to hurl well timed, hilarious insults at one another that keep you laughing. The passive aggressive dialogue between them was reminiscent of another great romantic comedy, When Harry Met Sally . This romantic comedy is so enjoyable to me because it does not fit the typical mold of a standard Rom-Com. Their daughter is planning to marry a man she

Black Adam

  Teth Adam (Dwayne Johnson) was given the powers of the Gods and used them to stop the tyrannical ruler of Kahndaq. 5,000 years later, he is released from his imprisonment to help modern day Kahndaq get out from under its current military rule. Teth Adam is not your normal superhero and will use his power to stop his enemies with deadly force. This draws the attention of the Justice Society, who must stop him before his destruction spreads too far. What follows is The Good, The Bad, and The Spoilers of  Black Adam . The Good From the moment Dwayne Johnson makes his on-screen appearance as Black Adam until the end of the movie, the audiences are given non-stop action and violence. This is exactly what everyone loves to see in a superhero movie. What takes it a step further, is that Black Adam does not attempt to control himself and spare his enemies. He will disintegrate them with lightning, throw them thousands of feet into the distance, or use their own weapons against them. Th

Halloween Ends.... ?

  In 1978, Michael Myers made his on-screen debut in Halloween . Over the last 44 years and 12 movies, Michael Myers has always managed to somehow survive and come back to kill again. This weekend, with the release of Michael Myer’s 13 th film, its title poses the question: Is it time for Michael Myers reign of terror to finally come to an end? In Halloween Ends, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) has moved on from the events of the previous film and is attempting to live a normal life not in fear. Until she is forced to come face-to-face with Michael Myers one last time. What follows is  The Good, The Bad, and The Spoilers  of  Halloween Ends . The Good I don’t think anyone would ever describe a Halloween movie as being “deep”, but Halloween Ends attempts to scare audiences by presenting them with something that seems all too real. Throughout the first half of the film, we are shown how trauma can have a very real impact on how people behave and act. Audiences will find themsel

Werewolf by Night

  Werewolf by Night is a new special presentation that just launched on Disney Plus. Monster hunters from around the world to determine who will be the next hunter to earn the Bloodstone and Leadership of the other hunters. The hunters enter a labyrinth where they must hunt down the beast with the bloodstone, while fending off the other competitors. One hunter though, hides a dark secret that would make the target on his back even bigger. What follows is  The Good, The Bad, and The Spoilers  of  Werewolf by Night . The Good Werewolf by Night has a great classic monster movie vibe. This is achieved not only by having the entire movie in black and white, but also through the over-the-top acting by the more whimsical characters like the step-mother and butler. One of my favorite parts early in the movie was the very small amount of CGI and a bigger focus on special effects. This ranged from the monster heads mounted around the wall, to the Ulysses Bloodstone automaton that very co
