Hell or High Water: Summer’s Best Movie is Finally Here [Review]

The recurring theme in two of the previous four movie reviews I’ve reviewed here is that, yes, summer movies have been a major letdown on all fronts. Superhero movies? Duds. Animated movies? Cash-grabs. Mega-budget sci-fi sequels? Repugnant. Comedies? Crickets. It’s worth mentioning summer for a third time because audiences have not been given that ONE movie that stays with them beyond the weekend they see it in theaters. Luckily, that changes this weekend. Hell or High Water is a near-perfect modern Western, filled with excellent performances and cheeky dialogue that personify the embodiment of the withering away of the genuine American Dream.

Hitman: Agent 47 – Made for Fans of The Video Game… Who Would Rather Play Than Watch it [Review]

Hitman:  Agent 47 did so many things right.  For starters, it wasn’t an origin story.  The origin of the titular character was neatly summed up in the first 30 seconds of the film, before the title sequence.  Everything was clearly lined up and explained.  Some people wanted a thing to happen and some other people wanted to stop that; now they’re going to fight.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. : Henry Cavill & Armie Hammer Have Beautiful Chemistry Together [Review]

It’s so refreshing these days to see a movie that’s not a sequel or prequel or reboot.  That’s probably why I had no idea what this was going in; I’d forgotten I’d seen the trailer and there wasn’t that much hype over this one.  So I had no expectations on this one and was pleasantly surprised.  I didn’t quite get the title, but Wikipedia was there in the pinch – this was based on a TV show from the 1960s that ran for four seasons… huh.  I guess it IS a reboot, nevermind then.

Starfire #3: Exciting, Current & Characters That Feel Real in The Best Issue Yet [Review]

I’ve been reviewing Starfire for the last couple of months mainly because I was surprised by it. I didn’t expect the book to be bad by any means, but I also didn’t expect that I would enjoy it as much as I do. Writing duo Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti along with the art team of Emanuela Lupacchino, Ray McCarthy and Hi-Fi have created one of my favorite super hero comics that I look forward to every month and its still not too late for you to jump on board if you haven’t already done so.
