    American Assassin

    ★½

    American Assassin is not a good film…there, I said it. Now that I have that out of the way, I’ll go ahead and breakdown this franchise-wannabe that’s wrapped in nonsense, and dipped in star spangled self-righteousness.

    American Assassin is “frat-boy cinema” at its best (or worst), and apologies if I have offended any frat-boys. It’s not fair that Lionsgate Studios and the filmmakers have decided to offend you, and audiences, with such a shallow affair. I love the genre the…

    It

    ★★★★★

    The summer movie season has ended with a loud, crashing thud, but the fall movie season has kicked off with a loud...scream. Stephen King's long anticipated, big screen adaptation of his 1986 novel, IT, has finally arrived, and it does not disappoint.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★★

    As I'm watching "Man of Steel" earlier this week, of course I could not help but feel excited for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Did I have a high level expectation? No, I did not. After watching it did I feel underwhelmed? Again no, I did not. I was just satisfied with what I had just saw and I think that's just fine. I'm not a comic book expert (my boyfriend suggests I hand in my comic geek card)…
