  Plane flew into theaters this past weekend, and with it we got the first action movie of the year. Gerard Butler plays Captain Torrance who must put all of his skills to the test to land his plane safely when it is struck by lightning. He manages to land the plane safely on a small island, where the problems just get worse. Captain Torrance has to quickly figure out how to save all of his passengers from militia groups and get them home safely.   What follows is The Good, The Bad, and The Spoilers of  Plane. The Good Plane does an amazing job of keeping you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire film. Almost anyone who has flown in bad turbulence knows the tension that builds up waiting to get through it. Plane does a great job capturing that stress and amplifying it by actually having the airplane go down. While the film is called Plane, a great deal of the story is spent with the passengers stranded fighting for their lives. The pace the movie managed to keep with t


  M3GAN is a new horror/sci-fi movie hitting theaters this weekend. M3GAN, pronounced “Megan”, is an amazing robotic doll with cutting-edge artificial intelligence. Her purpose is to be a child’s best friend and assist in the child’s physical and emotional needs. Cady is an 8-year-old girl whose parents are killed in a car accident which causes her to go and live with her aunt Gemma, who is also M3GAN’s creator. Gemma decides that M3GAN would help distract Cady from the loss of her parents and be a great test run from this new doll. Things do not unfold as she had expected. What follows is The Good, The Bad, and The Spoilers of  M3GAN. The Good M3GAN takes the “killer toy” aspects of different horror movies like Child’s Play (1988) and presents it in a way that is believable. The opening scene of the movie is shot like a commercial advertising a new toy but instead uses artificial intelligence to entertain kids. These little pets are adorable and very similar to something you mi

A Man Called Otto

  A Man Called Otto is a remake of the 2015 Swedish film A Man Called Ove , based on the Swedish novel of the same name. Tom Hanks plays Otto, an ill-tempered widower who mourns the loss of his wife and wishes to join her on the other side. His plans are interrupted by the arrival of new neighbors, who forcibly befriend him and offer him a reason to continue living. What follows is The Good, The Bad, and The Spoilers of  A Man Called Otto. The Good Tom Hanks always does an amazing job when given a role, so it is no surprise that I loved him in this movie. However, in my opinion, the real shining star of A Man Called Otto was Mariana Trevi ñ o, who played Marisol. The energy and abrasiveness she brought to the character contrasted so well to Hank’s character that when they were on screen together, you couldn’t help but smile. Another great casting decision in this movie was choosing to use Tom Hank’s own son, Truman Hanks, to play Otto in the flashback scenes. The pacing of th
