Note: This review is dedicated to Adam West.

Justice League is a 2017 superhero film that is the 5th film in the DC Extended Universe. Despite getting mostly bad reviews there are lots of good things in the film and this review is about why the film is worth checking out.

The Plot

Batman decides to lead a team of super heroes. He teams up with Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and Cyborg. Batman is desperate to make the world safe, because of what happened to Superman. Sadly Steppenwolf is putting the world in danger. Batman and his fellow heroes try to stop Steppenwolf. They decide to save Superman's life and get him to join the team.

The film's trailers made the film look exciting and the film sure lives up to the trailers. The Justice League members have very dangerous things to deal with and the film goes a good job at keeping things epic and entertaining. The subplots about the super heroes are well written and interesting.

Mark St. Cyr
If you like a well-crafted bio-pic, then you’re going to love the film "Marshall." It’s based on an early trial in the career of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall that later served as a template for his creation of the NAACP legal defense fund.

The film stars Chadwick Boseman in the title role, as he heads to Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur charged with sexual assault and attempted murder of his white employer.

Joining the all-star cast is rising actor Mark St. Cyr. Originally from Louisiana, this now New York based actor has also appeared in Lifetime’s "I Love You…But I Lied," "Law & Order: SVU," "Royal Pains," and "Sneaky Pete."

Mark St. Cyr recently took some time to answer some questions about his latest role in "Marshall":


Tell us about your role in "Marshall."

MARK: I play August, who is Langston Hughes' (Jussie Smollett) enigmatic boyfriend. Because the scene happens in a very public and very popular jazz club, our intimate relationship is only hinted at rather than open.

The Justice League film does have lots of trailers that reveal a lot about the film, but there are also a lot of things about the film that aren't fully revealed. I have predictions for 5 characters in the Justice League film.

Superman Prediction

I heard about Superman wearing a black costume in the film so I think that he's being brainwashed by either Steppenwolf or Darkseid into being evil which could bring back Batman's obsessive hatred of Superman.

Batman Prediction

Batman V Superman's version of Batman was supposed to be a meaner version of Batman on purpose due to the recent tragedies he dealt with. I think Batman will be more friendly and optimistic in the Justice League film despite acting like a wise guy in the film's trailers.

Steppenwolf Prediction

Steppenwolf is apparently the film's main villain who wants to destroy the world. However I think his real desire is to either retire or even get destroyed by the Justice League. In a interview with the actor that plays Steppenwolf mentioned that he's exhausted due to his age and how demanding Darkseid is. I have 2 predications for what his...

This review is dedicated to Bill Hanna, Joe Barbera, and Gene Wilder.

Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a 2017 animated film. The film's plot is based on the classic 1971 Willy Wonka film, but the film also has the title characters of the Tom and Jerry franchise.

The Plot

Charlie Bucket is a broke kid who wants to get a golden ticket so he can go to Willy Wonka's place. Tom and Jerry try to help Charlie get a golden ticket. Eventually Charlie gets a golden ticket and visits Willy Wonka's place along with his grandfather and the other ticket winners. However Tom and Jerry are worried about Mr. Slugworth's sneaky plans. Willy Wonka shows the kids his eccentric place while Tom, Jerry, and Tuffy try to Mr. Slugworth.

A Willy Wonka animated film that stars Tom and Jerry is a very weird idea, but that's what I like about it. Lots of films are mocked for being too generic. A Willy Wonka/Tom and Jerry crossover film is thankfully not generic. The film has plenty of sweet and fun scenes. Tom and Jerry's rivalry with the film's main antagonist is a good addition that adds lots of...

My Little Pony: The Movie is a 2017 animated film that is based on the popular animated show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The film has the show's voice cast playing the main ponies and celebrities playing the film's new characters.

The Plot

Twilight Sparkle and her friends (Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Spike) try to save Equestria from the Storm King. The Storm King had his top sidekick (Tempest Shadow) get the world in danger and steal the princess' magic. The ponies are helped out by some new characters who become their friends.

Although this is a overly cute My Little Pony film the film's plot is actually really epic. The world is put in danger which makes this far more important ands epic than most My Little Pony stories. The characters' storylines may be predictable, but the conflict is awesome.

The Characters

Twilight Sparkle (as usual) is my favorite of the main ponies due to being more important, interesting, and cooler than her friends. Twilight's friends have forgettable roles in the film. Tempest Shadow's storyline is predictable, but at least she has a...

Ramsay Philips
Ever wonder what it would be like to have a twin?

Actor Ramsay Philips gets the chance to find out -- well, not exactly.

Actually, Ramsay plays twins brothers, Nathan and Cole Weaver, starring in the new the mystery-thriller feature, “The Reunion.”

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is a 2016 DC film that stars DC's 2 most popular super heroes: Batman and Superman. Several critics thought that the film is bad. This review is about why I think that the film is really good. Of course you don't have to like the film if you don't want to. However I think that the film is really underrated.

The Film's Plot

Batman and Superman may both be super heroes, but they sure don't get along. Superman has his doubts about Batman while Batman hates Superman and plans to get rid of him. The rivalry is increased by Lex Luthor who wants Batman to get rid of Superman.

This might not sound like the most professional thing to say, but the film's plot is so awesome! DC's 2 best heroes fighting each other along in a epic story. Batman's hatred of Superman is pretty jarring and flawed, but that doesn't stop the film from being exciting and awesome. The storylines of the 2 main super heroes and Lex Luthor are impressive and thrilling.

Batman and Harley Quinn is a 2017 animated film. This film is a comedy film instead of a dramatic action film.

Plot

Batman is trying to stop Poison Ivy and Floronic Man from getting all humans in danger. Since Harley Quinn is best friends with Poison Ivy Batman and Nightwing team up with Harley. Batman, Nightwing, and Harley become a odd, but heroic trio who try to save Earth.

This film is actually a comedy film. It's very silly, but in a great way. This is 1 of the funniest and most enjoyable Batman films that I have watched. The film is fast paced so being bored isn't a problem. The plot isn't as great as some of the other Batman films, but this film is a great comedy.

Characters

Despite how goofy this film is Batman remains serious. He serves as the reasonable character in the film which actually leads to some of the film's funniest scenes. Plus Batman is voiced by Kevin Conroy in this film. Kevin also voiced Batman in several shows and films. Harley Quinn is pretty funny and oddly kind of heroic. Nightwing is actually really funny in the film. Poison Ivy is a cool villain who has a adorable friendship with Harley....

Diana (Gal Gadot) was raised among the Amazon warriors of the Mediterranean island of Themyscira, which the Greek god Zeus has cloaked from view by the outside world. As Diana approaches adulthood, her mother, Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), reluctantly allows her to be trained in combat by General Antiope (Robin Wright) — Diana’s aunt — in preparation for the inevitable return of Ares, the god of war. It soon becomes clear that Diana has powers that far surpass the superhuman strength of her compatriots.

When she sees a plane crash into the ocean, Diana swims out to sea and rescues World War I U.S. fighter pilot and intelligence officer Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), who is being pursued by a fleet of enemy ships. An epic clash between the Amazonians and the Central Power troops ensues on the island’s shore, and Diana witnesses for the first time the ravages of battle. When the dust clears, Steve tells the Amazonians about “the war to end all wars” that is raging in the outside world.

Wis Petter
Most filmmakers tend to gravitate towards creating either fictional narrative projects or documentary fact-based films. Once in a while, a filmmaker might stretch outside of their comfort zone and work in another type of filmmaking.

Enter rising Hong Kong female filmmaker Wis Petter, who has been successfully jumping back and forth since landing in Hollywood. For her, they’re both about telling a strong story.

Currently, the writer/producer/director is prepping her latest narrative short film THE DONOR, set in the underground world of the organ black market. She recently premiered the docu-short STEP BY STEP, about an aspiring hip-hop dancer pursuing his dream.

As a producer, Wis has teamed up with director Marco A Diaz to produce several acclaimed short films, including the award-winning documentary A PLACE FOR LIDIA; and the narrative films LET HER GO and the upcoming ABUELO.

Suicide Squad is a 2016 DC film. The film has popular DC characters including Batman, Joker, Harley Quinn.

The Plot

Amanda Waller is interested in having a group of criminals help fight crime. The team includes Deadshot, Harley Quinn, El Diablo, Captain Boomerang, and Killer Croc. Rick Flag, a hero, is in charge of keeping the group of criminals under control. Their enemy is the Enchantress, a dangerous woman who is very powerful.

Suicide Squad is a interesting film. It is rare to have a film that stars villains. Even films that claim to star a villain like Despicable Me turn the villain into a hero. This film makes criminals do heroic things, but are still dangerous criminals. Because of that this film is unique and fun. The film has a subplot involving Harley Quinn and the Joker's romance which is entertaining.

The Cast

Will Smith was cool and fun as Deadshot. The film focuses a lot on him which I'm okay with. Margo Robbie is my favorite Harley Quinn actress. I usually just think that Harley is okay, but she is very witty and enjoyable in this film. Rick Flag has the important role of being the most heroic and...

I saw over 20 films in 2016. Some of them were films that I didn't like. However the year had some good films. This list is about the 2016 films that I like the most.

10. Moana

Moana is a Disney animated film. The film has a very fun character named Maui who's greatly voiced by Dwayne Johnson. Also this film has good animation and catchy songs.

9. The Secret Life of Pets

The Secret Life of Pets is a animated film. This film has a very cute female dog named Gidget who is voiced by the talented Jenny Slate. This film has some cute and fun scenes.

8. Norm of the North

Unlike most critics I really like Norm of the North. This film is very silly, but I enjoyed it. The characters are entertaining and the jokes are funny. The animation has been mocked for being bad looking, but I think that the animation is colorful.

7. Tamayura part 4

You probably don't know what this film is. Tamayura part 4 is the finale of the Tamayura film series which is based on the Tamayura anime show. This barely known film is very inspiring and heartwarming. It has good characters and charming animation.

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is a 2016 action film. The film stars Superman (Henry Cavill) and Batman (Ben Affleck).

The Plot

Batman thinks that Superman is too dangerous so he decides to get rid of Superman. However Superman is busy trying to stop Lex Luthor who has villainous plans. It's up to Superman and Batman to get along and stop trying to destroy each other so they can get rid of the real villain of the film.

The plot of this film is interesting. This might sound weird, but I think that the film works as both a drama and as a accidental comedy. The film has some emotional scenes and exciting scenes that work. However there are also some silly qualities in the film that make it oddly entertaining. Batman's plan is so laughable, He is targeting Superman even though Superman is a hero. Batman is focused on destroying Superman instead of the villain (Lex Luthor). Plus Lex Luthor is a very goofy villain. The film's silly qualities make it a oddly fun film. Despite that the film's emotional scenes and action scenes work well. Also the finale is emotional and well. The plot works for both intended and unintended reasons.

Happy Pride Month!

Figured this would be a good time to finally put together a list of my top 5 LGBT movies. It's not an incredibly balanced list - leans pretty heavily towards the L. I'm hoping to expand this once I finally get my shit together and get to the tons of other LGBT movies that have been on my watch list forever. (Why must you be so rare and expensive, all the DVDs I want?)




Honorable Mention:
But I'm A Cheerleader
Year Released: 2000
Starring: Natasha Lyonne, Clea Duvall, Melanie Lynskey, Cathy Moriarty, RuPaul
Tagline: A Comedy Of Sexual Disorientation
One-Sentence Summary: A cheerleader suspected of being a lesbian gets sent to a ridiculously pink conversion camp, where she learns a lot about life and falls for a fellow female camper.
Happy Ending?: Yes

This movie is ridiculous...ly funny. Great cast, big gay crushes, lots of laughs, awkward heterosexual relations simulation, happy ending. What more could you want?

Dudley Do-Right is a 1999 comedy film that's based on a segment from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.

Plot

Dudley Do-Right's rival, Snidely K. Whiplash, becomes in charge of Semi Happy Valley. Dudley tries to save his city and impress Nell Fenwick. However Dudley gets fired so he gets mentored by a prospector named Kim J. Darling.

Dudley Do-Right got mocked for not being that entertaining, but I disagree with that. This film is tons of fun with several clever and hilarious scenes. The plot is interesting from beginning to end. This film succeeds at having a interesting plot and having great comedy. This film is mostly for jokes with a few sweet moments that are nice.

Cast

Brendan Fraser played Dudley Do-Right and it's hard to think of a better casting choice for Dudley than Brendan. Brendan was wonderful at making Dudley a likeable, charming, and fun hero. Alfred Molina is delightfully silly as Snidely. Sarah Jessica Parker played the damsel in distress parody character Nell Fenwick very well. Eric Idle is entertaining as the caring and eccentric prospector.

Lately I've been in a decade kinda mood. I've made articles for my favorite 90s and 00s TV series/movies and am in the process of doing a 90s movie one. Since there is no decent club for the 10s yet and it seems a bit presumptuous to make one now, I decided to post this article here. Of course I already made a poll that nobody answered, so logically making an article that nobody will read is the next step. Enjoy!

This was such a great movie. So great in fact, that I didn't even need a stellar cast to get me to go see it. The premise alone was intriguing. I know this is a remake, but I really have no desire to see the original. This movie was everything I needed and then some. It had a surprising twist that I didn't see coming either.

"The people you love, they're the only ones who can hurt you."



I love the White House. I love action. I love action movies IN the White House. I also love Gerard Butler and siege movies. And just America. Anyway this was a great fun movie. In television's greatest show 24, there was a series of episodes in which the White House was invaded by terrorists...

No need to clean your glasses. You read that right. I liked the Dirty Dancing remake.

First, I need to disclose that I have never actually seen the original Dirty Dancing. I tried about a week ago, after seeing a promo for this, but I only made it about half an hour in before skimming the Wikipedia summary and calling it quits. I know the original is regarded as a classic and has a lot of fans, so I mean you all no disrespect. It's just not my cup of tea. (Or slice of giant watermelon?)

Second, if you're reading this still thinking I'm joking about liking it, or came here wanting to troll, save us both some time and move along.

If you are unaware: Dirty Dancing is a 2017 made-for-tv remake of a 1987 movie starring Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze. The remake, which shall henceforth be known as Dirty Dancing 2.0, is in the form of a musical and stars Abigail Breslin, Colt Prattes, Sarah Hyland, Debra Messing, Katey Sagal, Bruce Greenwood, J. Quinton Johnson and Billy Dee Williams. It originally aired on ABC on May 24, 2017.

Yoga Hosers is a 2016 comedy film. The film was directed by Kevin Smith. The film stars Kevin Smith's daughter, Johnny Depp's daughter, and Johnny Depp.

The Plot:

Kevin Smith and Johnny Depp's daughters play a duo of store workers who are best friends. 1 night a bunch of trouble happens at the store. Some weird creatures and 2 dangerous guys show up. It's up to a detective played by Johnny Depp to help the store workers.

Yoga Hosers is delightfully eccentric. This film makes little sense, but that makes the film more creative and fun. I had more fun watching this crazy film than I did watching most recent films. Kevin Smith did a impressive job at making this film so good.

The Cast:

Kevin Smith and Johnny Depp's daughters are amusing enough, but the main scene stealer is Johnny Depp. Johnny played the same character that he played in Tusk. Johnny gets to be very entertaining character in this film. Justin Long is also very entertaining in this film. Justin played a yoga teacher who rips off Yogi Bear.

Going in Style is a 2017 comedy film. The film has some famous actors including Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin, Matt Dillon, and Christopher Lloyd.

The Plot:

Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Arkin play a trio of friends who get ripped off by their bank. Michael Caine's character is at risk of losing his house so he and his 2 best friends team up to steal the money their bank owes them.

Going in Style feels like a television sitcom that's feature length, but in a good way. This film is meant to be a fun comedy starring talented actors and the film is good at doing that. The film has enough sweet scenes and enough fun scenes to be a good comedy film.

The Cast:

All 3 of the main actors are good in the film. Michael Caine gets the best storyline so he stands out as the best of the 3 leads, but the other 2 are good too. They work good as a fun comedy film trio. However the main scene stealer is Christopher Lloyd. Every scene that has Mr. Lloyd is funny. Mr. Lloyd plays a comedy relief character and he did a great job.

Actor Corlandos Scott
If you’re a parent with young children, then you’re always searching for quality movies your whole family can watch.

The new DVD/VOD release A Cowgirl’s Story stars Bailee Madison (from Good Witch fame) as Dusty Rhodes, a young teen living with her grandfather (the legendary Pat Boone) because her Army parents are fighting in the Afghanistan war. Dusty convinces her new friends to form an equestrian drill team to cope with her fear and helplessness that goes along with the territory.

Rising actor Corlandos Scott lends his support to the film as the local Detective, stepping into the storyline when the girls find themselves in trouble.

Parents might recognize this Alabama native from his appearance as a Union Solider on HBO’s Westworld; and horror fans will remember him as ‘Detective Loomis’ starring in the horror franchise films Hayride and Hayride 2.

Excited to now be part of this family friendly film, Corlandos Scott took time to answer a few questions:

Note: This review is dedicated to Peyo (the creator of The Smurfs) and to Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera (the creators The Smurfs animated show).

Smurfs The Lost Village is a animated film that's based on Peyo's Smurfs comics.

The Plot:

Smurfette feels like she's not a real smurf, because she doesn't seem to have a main personality trait and was made by Gargamel. She finds out about a place that has other smurfs. She, Hefty, Clumsy, and Brainy go check out the other smurfs, but Gargamel wants to steal the smurfs. It's up to Smurfette to discover who she is so she can defeat Gargamel.

The plot of this film is great. It's a inspring and cute film for children. The plot allows Smurfette to not have more clear personality traits. In fact she gets a better storyline than the other smurfs. It's not as complex as The Wind Rises, but it's pretty meaningful for a smurfs film. Gargamel's storyline of trying to get the smurfs makes the film more interesting and exciting.

I thought that since I did a list of movie that I love and are my favorites that I'd go a head and do a list of movies that I just thought were either boring or just plain bad. Now you may think they are great and that's fine but this is my opinion and I can't help that. There are going to be movies that I hate but that you may like.

1. Dark Shadows


Now don't get me wrong I am a huge Johnny Depp fan but I know that not every movie that he stars in I will enjoy. I really, really wanted to like this film. I saw the trailer to it and I thought it was funny. Well, a couple of years ago, I watched part of it but for some reason I turned it off when Barnabus (Johnny Depp) was getting high with some hippies. Anyways, just a couple of months ago, I saw it again from that scene and before it even got to the end I just went to my room as I had been watching it with my parents. I thought it was boring, Chloe Moretz and Johnny Depp had some funny lines but other than that, it made me run away cause it was just bad.

This my review of the Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters had 2 films in the 1980s' and the new film came out in 2016. It's time to find out which Ghostbuster film is the best and which Ghostbusters film is worth being busted by the ghostbusters.

1984 film review:

The first Ghostbusters film of often considered to be the best Ghostbusters film which is understandable. This is my favorite 1980s' film. It's aged well due to its' clever writing, good pacing, and entertaining cast. The film is a comedy, but it also has adventure and excitement.

The Ghostbusters are a good team. I like all 4 of the members. Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd are the biggest stand outs, but Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson are pretty good too. Rick Moranis is a good comedy relief. Out of the 3 Ghostbusters films this one has the best plot. Also it has the best climax thanks to the marshmallow antagonist. If you haven't watched this film yet I think that you should check it out.

So far there has been 2 live action films in Disney's live action film series adaption of Alice in Wonderland. In 2010 there was Alice in Wonderland and in 2016 there was Alice Through the Looking Glass. I'm hoping for a sequel.

Here's what I want in Alice 3

Tarrant Hightopp getting more screen time.

Tarrant is the Hatter. He's the most entertaining character in the franchise. He's already gotten plenty of screen time in the previous films, but more of him would be great.

I want Time to return.

Time seems like a 1 film type of character, but he's a fun character who I want to watch more of. I'm not sure how to make him a important character again, but I trust Linda Woolverton to know how to bring him back.

I want Hamish to be the main villain.

Making him a bad guy in Alice Through the Looking Glass was fun. I want him to get a bigger role as the main villain of Alice 3. It would be cool if he found out about Underland (Wonderland) and tried to rule it.
