Another installment from DC Comics…5,000 years ago Black Adam was entombed after magical powers were bestowed upon him. Now in modern times Black Adam is freed from his earthly tomb ready to unleash his unique form of justice upon the modern world. The story unfolds from there…
No real plot or story… The movie will overwhelm you with a ton of action and special effects that mean absolutely NOTHING… This is not one of Dwayne Johnson’s best movies. Lots of characters and not sure who the foes were. The dialog was also lacking. This was a highly anticipated movie that left me extremely disappointed. Lots of potential that did not payoff.
In fact, I saw “Black Adam” Friday afternoon, but was so disappointed I needed to really think about what I wanted to say before posting a review.
“Black Adam” is not worth the price of admission. See it on Cable or a Streaming Service.
This is a 2 Star Movie!!
How many times and how many ways can Cinderella be made? Well, another installment is upon us. This one is an Amazon Prime Exclusive. It’s chocked full of famous and well-known actors and actresses and I am sure this was a fun vehicle for them to make.
Unfortunately, it’s not as good as it should be… Don’t get me wrong, they did change it up a bit in several areas. Also, this is primarily a Musical, so most of the dialog is in song. I am just no sure that this version needed to be told. Cinderella is a Classic!! This version tries to bring it into the 21st Century. I don’t feel that is needed. It could have been redone, just keep the Classic style in place.
I did find parts of the movie amusing. I also found parts of the movie boring.
Alas…There was some comic relief. I think children will find this version entertaining. From an Adult’s perspective the screenplay is disjointed.
If you have Amazon Prime, viewing this installment of Cinderella will not cost you a dime. Otherwise, it’s not worth the cost of a regular movie ticket.
This is a 2 Star Movie!!
“The Foreigner” will show veteran actor Jackie Chan in a different light.
A typical day where a father picks up his daughter from school and takes her shopping turns into the worst possible nightmare when a planted bomb goes off near a women’s boutique.
Grief stricken beyond belief Quan (Jackie Chan) searches for answers. He visits the local police but doesn’t get any comfort. Soon Quan makes his way to a British Government Official, Liam Hennessy (Pierce Brosnan) looking for answers, but isn’t offered any hope.
Believing that the Liam Hennessy is lying, Quan decides to get the Official’s attention. The story unfolds from there…
I thought that “The Foreigner” was very entertaining. The movie has lots of action, suspense, intrigue and some very interesting twists and turns.
A grieving parent is a devastating soul. A grieving parent who has martial arts skills and is a former special ops in the military is Deadly!
Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan are very convincing in their roles.
“The Foreigner” is worth a look.
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!
