The Spring Blockbusters Cometh


PLOT:    Successful black male meets his white girlfriend’s parents with scary results.
                Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Johnny English Reborn) is very much in love with Rose (Allison Williams, Girls HBO series) a pretty white woman.  They are getting serious and Rose wants him to meet her parents.  He is nervous for her folks doesn’t know he is African-American.  He goes anyway even when his good friend Rod (LilRel Howery, a stand-up comic) advises him not to go.  Big mistake for he starts seeing things that are very unsettling with the black maid and gardener.  He finally finds out what is going on and it is frightening!  Some people think it is slow because it is building to a creepy climax. There is a lot going on in this film. All the actors are great-especially Howery who is much needed comic relief and director Jordon Peele (part of Key and Peele-the one with the glasses who does skit comedy on Comedy Central) does a great job.

PLOT:  The final chapter of Wolverine.

                Logan (Hugh Jackman) is older and the adamantium is killing him yet he takes a job as a chauffeur and takes care of an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart).  A mysterious woman begs him to take a young girl Laura (Dafne Keen) to the Canadian border and they are endless hunted by the military to get the Laura back.  OMG!  This is not a POPCORN MOVIE!  There is humor but it is bloody, dark and grim.  It is a slow pace but when there is action it is a messy.  It is rated R for a very good reason.  Jackman is good for he can be human and horrifying too.  Keen mostly has a scowl on her face and when you watch the movie you will know why.  See it if you like Wolverine for Hugh Jackman says it’s his last(?).  If he did he ended it on a high but sad note.


PLOT:    In 1973 scientists and military go to an island that doesn’t exit and finds monsters.

                First, let me say King Kong is not my favorite giant monster until I saw this movie!  He is seen more than my favorite giant monster Godzilla 2014.  King Kong in 1933 is 25 feet, this one is 100 feet.  The people are expendable but they do what they can.  No one is going to see this epic movie for acting.  The monster action is AMAZING and the finale is FANTASTIC!!!  If the upcoming film Godzilla Vs King Kong is as good as this-shut up and take my money!  Giant monsters fans REJOICE!.  Stay for the extra footage.

More Thrillers, Or Thrillingly Silly


PLOT:  Batman as a Lego character.

                Batman (Will Arnett, Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles) loves being the lonely, anti-hero but he realizes he needs a team that’s like family to stop the evil Joker ( Zach Galifinakis) to from destroying Gotham City.  This movie is funny and shows Batman from the 60’s to now in funny ways. It has villains even from other movies. Arnett’s Batman is just great as the rest of the cast that includes Robin (Michael Cera), Batgirl (Rosario Dawson).  Kids and adults will enjoy this movie.


PLOT:  John Wick tries to retire again.

                John Wick (Keanu Reeves) wants to lead the quite life with his new dog, new home but an old friend needs his services so he has to kill a lot of people when there is a hit on him.  Story not a point in a movie like this but body count is.  The film is stylish and bloody.  There is a fight scene between Reeves and rapper Common that will become a classic.  Will there be a Chapter 3?  Only the fans can decide.  Action hounds your movie is HERE!


PLOT:  Jamie Fox plays a cop. 
Jamie Fox plays Vincent a policeman who may or not be crooked.  He steals drugs from the top gangster and they retaliate by kidnapping his teenage son in front of him.  The movie was in theaters for a hot minute but is very good.  You as well as Fox don’t know what cops or federal agents to trust until the very end.  The action is good and the thrills are better.  You should see this if you are a Jamie Fox fan or action fan.
