5.0 out of 5 stars WHO'S MY SUPER BOY, June 1, 2015
This review is from: Poltergeist
If you are like me, you already know the plot and will be menatlly comparing this film to the classic. Eric (Sam Rockwell) gets laid off as a quality inspector for John Deere. His wife is going to write a book. They are downsizing their home and moving into a community that already has a lot of foreclosures. Apparently he didn't need a bank loan. We know the drill, cemetery, power lines, "Poltergeist" mowed into the lawn (opening sequel) but no swimming pool.

Their son Griffin (Kyle Catlett) is afraid of his own shadow and sleeps in the attic with left over clown dolls and wild squirrels. Kennedi Clements plays Madison, the little girl. Personally I preferred Heather O'Rourke.

In our update, the poltergeist have a plethora of electronic devices to haunt and it seems modern smart phones have a app to locate them. Rockwell plays his typical semi-disagreeable character. Zelda Rubinstein has no equal so they opted for a TV show tough paranormal hunter (Jared Harris). I enjoyed the special effects and the use of the sound track. It was a professional production, not some "B" movie hack job.

Guide: Use "Effin" instead of F-bomb. i.e. "Big Effin Squirrel" Rosemarie DeWitt in sad underwear, Sam Rockwell in happy underwear. Saxon Sharbino provides some eye candy for the male teen. No Jobeth William rolling on the floor in her panties.

3.0 out of 5 stars MURDER IS A CAPITALIST DISEASE, June 1, 2015
This review is from: Tom Hardy's Child 44 Trailer
Leo (Tom Hardy) is attempting to solve a series of children's murders. The government denies they are taking place. He is sent from Moscow to Volsk, but the murders continue.

I had a hard time digesting the theme. The murders are being denied because.... the children are having their organs harvested? The killer is a powerful person they are protecting? Nope. "Murder is a capitalist disease." The film shows us the brief history of Leo. his love for his wife, and the accusations and dealing with traitors.

Perhaps the problem I had with the film was that the culture seemed so alien, I had a hard time relating and getting into the film.

Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

1.0 out of 5 stars THERE IS A LAWLESS INSIDE ALL OF US, May 31, 2015
This review is from: The D Train - Clip: Mulroney
Daniel Landsman (Jack Black) Is attempting to get people to come to their 20 year high school reunion. He is obsessed and no one wants to come. He discovers former classmate Oliver Lawless (James Marsden) is a successful Banana Boat sunscreen spokes model. He convinces his boss (Jeffrey Tambor) to let him fly to LA under false pretenses so he can convince Oliver to come to the reunion, using his name as a draw card.

Daniel will do anything to get Oliver to come to the reunion, which made this an uncomfortable comedy. When I am not comfortable, I can't laugh, and the film wasn't funny up to that point to begin with. The whole film blows up at the end in an inane confrontation.

Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity? Bad script.

2.0 out of 5 stars FAINT SMELL OF STOLEN CRANBERRY, May 31, 2015
Michael McCoy (Robert Ri'chard) goes to college, works a less than minimum wage job, and helps support his mom (Vivica A. Fox). At the urging of his unemployed older brother (DeRay Davis) Mike gets on stage and quickly becomes a sensation.Mike adds this to his full schedule which causes school and relationship problems.

Okay. I'm a guy and I was bored. The dialogue was bad which made the actors look bad. Much of the film was guys dry humping the audience as dollars are unrealistically thrown into the air at random. At one point the preacher (Jean-Claude La Marre) says he had the "faint smell of stolen cranberry." What was that? Is that a line from a rap song? Is that some secret African-America saying? Or ramblings from Grandpa Simpson?

The movie was filmed in California, but they managed to secure Atlanta plates (Fulton Co) for their vehicles to confuse us. I had a number of African-American males tell me this was a good film. I would respectfully disagree.

Guide: No real sex outside of humping and groping. Partial butt nudity.

4.0 out of 5 stars LET'S GO FIND OUT, May 31, 2015
This review is from: Tomorrowland [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is one of those kid (s) save the world film where a girl is the hero/role model. There was an outcry for more positive female role models, and Hollywood appears to have responded, if not over responded.

Most reviews of this film avoid talking about the plot, as most adults don't know exactly what is going on as the story is a bit confused, especially when tachyon time travel viewing is involved. Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) a bright teen girl who likes science (no talking "math is hard" Barbies allowed). She gets it and cares. She is inundated with the doom and gloom messages of global disaster and wants to "fix it" unlike most of the apathetic planet who want to market the concept. She meets Athena (Raffey Cassidy) a time and dimension traveling android who has her team with inventor Frank Walker (George Clooney) to save the world.

The film could be said to have a liberal bias, but blames humanity as a whole for not acting, without specifically mentioning climate deniers. It was apparent who they were talking about without mentioning their name. Warning: The film might be inspiration and a call to action for your youngster who might believe they can make a difference.

The film had great special effects, but has heavy parts when it gets bogged down with the message.
