Interstellar (Movie)

InterstellarMain Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, John Lithgow, Mackenzie Foy

Review: 9 out of 10 stars.

Without giving away any plot or spoil a very good movie, it is about a group of explorers trying to find a new home for the soon-to-be-drought-to-death earth.

The movie was more than a basic sci-fi flick. It’s filled with (more…)

Review: 9 out of 10 stars.

Aznized San Francisco with a bunch of “nerds” (more like geeks.)

The story surrounded Hiro (sounds as Hero) who lives with his brother and their parents died when he was only 3. BayMax (the inflatable robot) has learned emotions with AI (remember (more…)

A Christmas Story (Movie)

AChristmasStoryMain Cast: Peter Billingsley, Melinda Dillon, Darren McGavin

Review: 7.2 out of 10 stars.

Ferrell actually has done a (more…)

Review: 6 out of 10 stars.

Argh what a messy dramedy. Based on the play by Tracy Letts that was the recipient of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

This is not your Dec 25 holiday cheer comedy. In fact, how could it be so mis-categorized as a movie?! It’s so cynical that it’s not funny. Of course unless you find (more…)
