Mechanic: Resurrection (film review by Frank Ochieng)

British badass Jason Statham is back and doing what he does best: kicking butt and taking targeted names in the process. The veteran action star is out for more blood in the labored sequel ‘Mechanic: Resurrection’. The trouble, however, is that fist-swinging wrecking ball Statham’s taste for boisterous blood in his latest toothless and meandering globe-trotting caper […]

Don’t Breathe (film review by Frank Ochieng)

  There are several contemporary horror showcases that could certainly benefit from co-writer/director Fede Alvarez’s (‘Evil Dead’) edgy home invasion thriller ‘Don’t Breathe’. For starters, Alvarez taps into the suggestive elements of tension without the over-extended need to go overboard. The chills and thrills seem almost organic and unassuming. Sure, there appears to be a simplistic approach […]

Star Trek Beyond (2016) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

Justin Lin of the ‘Fast & Furious’ films directs the new ‘Star Trek’ film with an adventure a little scaled-down from the previous film and much more like an episode of the original TV series. We are given a lot of action, as we might expect with Lin, but the story has an old MacGuffin […]

Lights Out (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Although a simplistic and familiar theme is explored involving sinister forces tormenting a child in distress, Swedish director David F. Sandberg brings something chillingly fresh to his horror/psychological offering ‘Lights Out’.  Sandberg, making his feature film debut, delivers an adequate amount of tension and trickery for all things considered ominous in the edginess of darkness. ‘Lights […]

Nine Lives (film review by Frank Ochieng)

Is it safe to assume that the flea-bitten feline fantasy ‘Nine Lives’ has completely gone to the dogs? Do not let this cockeyed kiddie comedy fool you because’ despite its intentional cuteness involving a self-deprecating, wise-cracking wealthy businessman-turned-hedonistic hairball may be appealing to the Romper Room crowd, ‘Nine Lives’ has all the comical chops of juggling chunky kitty […]
