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

kung fury

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

Kudos to the people who helped to fund this over-the-top 80s action movie! Kung Fury was full of puns, 80s references, the Hoff, and so much ridiculousness. It is worth multiple re-watches! Hopefully, the creators will eventually get a full feature release because there’s no doubt that it would be epic! Kung Fury is short Read more…

The title, Dope, adequately describes how I feel about the movie. It was like a blast to the past in the present with epic sounds and stellar swag. What truly made the movie exceptional was the reaction of the crowd in the theater. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard laughter provoked by reminiscing Read more…

masters of the universe

Monday, June 15th, 2015

Not a cinematic masterpiece, but to see Dolph Lundgren in a role as a hero sure was fantastic! And appearance-wise, I don’t think anyone else at the time could match the physique of what us kids all imagined He-man would look like if he were real. Despite its weak story, the movie had redeeming factors. Read more…

I was under the impression that Interstellar would be exactly like Gravity, but much to my relief, it was not. Well, except for the space setting and one or two unfortunate scenarios. Unlike Gravity, however, this had a story with a little M. Night Shamalan-esque eeriness of ghostly proportions. That sounds horrible. Let me retract. Read more…

magic in the moonlight

Monday, June 1st, 2015

Magic in the Moonlight was tedious, but cute. In the beautiful landscape of France, a very astute man is called upon to determine the legitimacy of a young female physic. The movie paints a romance born out of deception. From an artistic standpoint, everything about this film was gorgeous, but it wasn’t memorable. I feel Read more…

the hundred foot journey

Saturday, May 30th, 2015

Lately, I have found myself watching culinary genius through a screen rather than through my mouth. The Hundred Foot Journey was charming, emotional, and mouth-watering. I was salivating for a good 50% of the film. The story was not very deep, but it was balanced between romance and drama. The characters are likable, especially that Read more…

furious 7

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

This movie tops all the movies I’ve seen so far this year and here’s why: It’s beautiful. I couldn’t imagine this movie going any other way and the fact that the director and the cast was able to put this together in their grief of losing a member of their family really makes you appreciate Read more…

little boy

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Small people have it hard. Not only do we struggle to reach items off of shelves, we occasionally get used as arm rests. Thanks, taller people. This movie is for the little people! It’s about a little boy, who does whatever he can to bring his dad back from war. It’s a heartwarming film that Read more…

john wick

If you had any doubts that Keanu Reeve could pull off a focused killer whose life just got rocked after a stupid tragic incident, well then, let this movie clear that right up! I can’t tell you how much I looked forward to seeing this movie. In fact, a lot of my enthusiasm came from Read more…


Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

There’s nothing like a magical movie With Witches, pirates, and a falling star, that fills you up with everlasting glee For this tale is not just about magic But about adventure and thirst for love While surviving all that may be tragic. The cast is both lovely and venomous Creating a balance of both good Read more…
