Three Hell’s Kitchen Housewives soon find themselves husband-less because their husbands tried to rob a liquor store and failed. Once their husbands were sentenced to spent time behind bars, the three wives went about hatching their own plans to make money in Hell’s Kitchen. The story unfolds from there…
I had high hopes for “The Kitchen” when I first saw trailers of the movie, I thought wow this should be interesting.
My hopes were dashed only 20 minutes into the movie. The movie was dry and lifeless, almost listless. I found myself a bit bored.
There was no real back story. Each housewife had a story, but it never really came to the surface. Those stories should have come to the surface even for just a few scenes so you could understand the events that happened.
There is some suspense and intrigue, but not nearly enough to justify a $15 dollar movie ticket. I was very surprised given the cast in the movie, but it just goes to show that a great cast does not always translate into a great movie.
I say wait for cable for “The Kitchen”.
This is a 1 Star Movie!!
“Star Wars Ep. VIII: The Last Jedi” continues the saga from The Force Awakens as those heroes join the galactic legends in what turns out to be an EPIC adventure. Age-old mysteries of the Force and un-told/unfinished stories from the past are unlocked. The story unfolds from there…
If you are a “Die-Hard” Star Wars fan, you will love “Star Wars Ep. VIII: The Last Jedi”.
The movie is EPIC in its delivery and covers a lot of ground. There is plenty of thrilling action, super-cool special effects and breath-taking cinematography.
There are a lot of twists and turns which helps to keep a long-running (2:32) movie interesting.
A bit more of the “Dark-side” surfaces in this installment. This is the middle installment of a Trilogy. The door is open and set for the third installment. Mark Hamill does an excellent job paving the way for the new younger “Skywalkers” to come.
This is a 4 1/2 Star Movie!
Remember the Iran Contra Scandal that plagued the Reagan Administration? “American Made” is about actual events from that scandal.
A TWA Pilot, Barry Seal (Tom Cruise) is approached by a CIA agent, Monty Schafer (Domhnall Gleeson), in an attempt to recruit Barry Seal away from TWA to make flights to Central America. On these flights Barry often times has merchandise such as motorcycles, guns or even liquor to drop off. Barry also picks up drugs while in Central America and makes drops on his way back to the US.
All the while this is going on other agencies are keeping an eye on Barry as they think he might be a criminal (Drug Smuggler). Not fully understanding what Barry’s mission is, the DEA, ATF and FBI ambush Barry in Arkansas. The story unfolds from there…
You have to respect the “Actor” in Tom Cruise as he puts a tremendous amount of energy into the roles he plays. This is true of “American Made”. Tom gives it the energy it needs and without his energy the movie might not be as good as it is.
“American Made” is entertaining. It’s not fast-paced, but it does tell the story in a reasonable fashion.
This is a 4 Star Move!
“The Revenant” is extremely harsh and brutal, but it was executed brilliantly!!
Based on factual events, Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) a fur tradesman who is out on a fur expedition with a team of men gets mauled by a bear. The story centers-around Hugh’s brave and sometimes perilous survival in the wilderness of the 1820’s. The story unfolds from there…
“The Revenant” is definitely not my type of movie, but I had to see it since its receiving so many raves. It’s nominated for several Golden Globes and there is massive Oscar buzz about it and Leonardo Dicaprio’s acting in it.
DiCaprio was brilliant and he deserves any Oscar nod he receives. The movie is harsh and unforgiving. The story is told in painstaking fashion. All action is driven by revenge. The cinematography and camera angles are excellent.
If you can stand the harshness and brutality “The Revenant” is worth a look.
This is a 4 Star Movie!
Star Wars is back with its seventh installment! This is the first of a Trilogy under the Walt Disney umbrella.
The events that occur started after the 1983 “Return of the Jedi” which was installment number six.
Its 30 years later and Luke Skywalker has disappeared. The First Order has risen and is out to eliminate Luke and destroy the Republic. The Resistance, a military force that is led by Princess Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) Luke’s Sister, opposes the First Order while searching for Luke. The story unfolds from there…
There is never a dull moment in the movie. It’s entertaining, there is constant action, mayhem and a Sci-Fi extravaganza! The pick-up from the 1983 installment does an excellent job. You are duly reminded of what happened previously.
The cinematography is excellent, it’s definitely worth the 3D and IMAX Experience.
There is a nice lead-in to the next installment.
This is a 4 1/2 Star Movie!!
