'Avengers: Infinity War' (2018): Emotions Run High with Universe Hanging in the Balance
Do we all live or do we all die? Who stays and who goes? You will not know the answers to these questions until you see ‘Avengers: Infinity War’.

'Traffik' (2018): A Tragic Narrative about Sex Trafficking
‘Traffik’ is a film that surrounds the topic of sex trafficking. This is not to be confused with the Oscar-winning Steven Soderberg film ‘Traffic’ (2000). This film by Deon Taylor is altogether different. A few years ago, I saw a documentary on sex trafficking in Chicago and know others that that have done films on... Read more »

I knew a little about the story before watching and I was hearing about the buzz. The young teenage actor Charlie Plummer is from ‘All the Money in the World’. I figured this would be a great film… and I was right. A young boy and his horse. What could go wrong? This was one... Read more »

Tyler Perry's 'Acrimony' Review (2018): A Woman Scorned

Tyler Perry's 'Acrimony' Review (2018): A Woman Scorned
‘Acrimony’ weaves an intricate web of deceit and lies. Director and screenwriter, Tyler Perry is known for making films about fed up, angry black women, ‘you done me wrong’, but at least you already know what you are getting……So you can’t really complain. There is a niche audience for his films and this fact is... Read more »

The Leisure Seeker Review (2018):  A Comical, Yet Somber Journey
I found this film to be rather depressing. If this is what I have to look forward to when I get older… I am surely doomed! Although ‘The Leisure Seeker’ points a vivid picture of an elderly couple having their last vacation trip, so many things go wrong. I was cringing the whole way through.... Read more »

Tomb Raider Review (2018): The New Lara Croft Conquers

Tomb Raider Review (2018): The New Lara Croft Conquers
Lara Croft is not the same of what I remember of the original (Angelina Jolie). Alicia Vikander has some big shoes to fill. I like the fact that she was not trying to be the same character and added her own touch. She was a different Lara that came across well. She maintained a style... Read more »
