Below are movies that I consider "HIT", so give them a try!

kung fu panda 3

Friday, February 5th, 2016

Po, the Dragon Warrior, returns in this third installment of the series to defend the world against a near-invincible foe! Like the previous films, Po is lovable and relatable, kicking ass and just being all-around awesome! I can’t say this is my favorite in the series, but what’s great is that the movies maintain consistency Read more…

Oh how disgruntled I was when I heard that a Rocky spinoff was in the works! Rocky Balboa was a fitting end to the beautiful series, leaving audiences with words of wisdom and a restoration of love for the one and only Rocky. Another installment, regardless of whether it focused on Apollo Creed’s son or Read more…

we are marshall

Monday, November 30th, 2015

When someone told me about this movie, I could not believe it was based off a true story. It just sounded too unbelievably tragic. On their way back home after an away game, Marshall University’s football team perished in a plane crash in 1970, along with a few fans. The movie depicts the aftermath, a Read more…

the station agent

Monday, November 16th, 2015

If this is the movie that propelled Peter Dinklage’s career, I can get on board with that. This movie was charming and unexpectedly wonderful. The Station Agent tells the story of a recluse train enthusiast who is befriended by an aloof painter and an overly social, if not desperate, son of a food truck owner. Read more…

the 33

Monday, November 9th, 2015

The movie tells the story of the 33 miners trapped in a collapsed gold mine in Chile. With the government’s outlook looking negative following the disastrous earthquake and tsunami that rocked the nation, the search and rescue of these men was a shot at redemption. Albeit dramatized, the movie does capture the rough conditions faced Read more…

rambo first blood part ii

Saturday, October 17th, 2015

My lack of focus during this movie may be an indication of how much I enjoyed it compared to the first. While it maintained the same level of heroics, the story didn’t quite grip me in. I do regret not paying full attention though because this was the chance for Rambo to have a romantic Read more…

first blood

Monday, October 12th, 2015

This movie really had me thinking about the treatment of veterans when they return to civilian life. While the movie was exaggerated, it highlighted the lack of help given to soldiers who are dealing with PTSD. I’d even say it was ahead of its time since I feel PTSD has only recently become more apparent Read more…

mission impossible: rogue nation

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

I am really baffled by the accolades this movie has been getting since its release. While I enjoyed it, I can’t say that it was the best movie of the year in action, drama, or thrill. For me, it was missing semblance of deepness. It simply scratched the surface of entertainment without leaving a solid Read more…

If you have seen Lucy, you have seen this movie. The endings and the gender of the main characters are different, but the story is essentially the same. There’s a pill/drug that allows the user to tap into his/her full brain capacity, making them smarter, faster, limitless. However, with great power and ability, come great Read more…
