Movie Review: Straight Outta Compton (2015)

“Eazy is his name and the boy’s coming…” “Straight Outta Compton” is the simplified rags to riches story of the pioneers of gangsta rap, N.W.A (the title is from the group’s 1988 debut album). It’s a lot of ground to cover, but I feel that it does it well. The film includes all of the members of the west coast …

G Money’s Movie Review: Straight Outta Compton

The late ’80’s and early ’90’s were a turbulent time in California especially in the inner cities. Drugs and gang violence were on the rise and those that were living in those cities that weren’t partaking in illegal activity were caught up in the chaos. This certainly is a reflection of the strife between officers of the law and citizens …

Movie Review: Shaun the Sheep Movie

“Shaun the Sheep” came into my life at exactly the right time. Years ago, my wife and I were dealing with the devastating loss of a family member and, to say the least, we were in need of a distraction and a good laugh. We came across the “Shaun the Sheep” TV series, put out by the award-winning Aardman Animations, …

G Money’s Movie Review: Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

For the last twenty plus years Tom Cruise has been a staple at the box office. He is the last remaining “matinee idol” to grace the silver screen. This is no small feat considering Tom is now in his fifties. In the latter part of his career, Tom has focused more on big budget action/sci-fi films than dramatic turns in …

Video Review: Mad Max: Fury Road

The last time we visited the Wasteland of director George Miller’s mind, it was 30 years ago and Mel Gibson was playing our hero. Max was tussling with Tina Turner as Aunty Entity for the fate of Bartertown in the Thunderdome. If this last paragraph means nothing to you, don’t worry, because the latest installment, “Mad Max: Fury Road”, is …

Movie Review: Fantastic Four (2015)

“Dr. Storm, we gave you six years and billions of dollars and you gave us nothing. What’s different, now?”                                         We all knew it was coming. We knew that they were throwing money at this movie (it had a budget of …

G Money’s Movie Review: Pixels

The 1980’s were a time when innovation in technology ruled the day. New and groundbreaking were keys to success when marketing a technological product. One of these innovations was the video game. The 80’s saw the rise of video gaming among the youth of the time. What was once done as a hobby in the backrooms of “tech” colleges became …

Movie Review: Pixels (2015)

“This is how you’re going to treat me after all the quarters I fed you?!” When I first heard about “Pixels,” I can recall being excited about the project. When I found out that Adam Sandler was attached to the film as its lead, that excitement was diminished by quite some margin. The video short that the movie was based …

Movie Review: Vacation

There was once a sharp, boundary pushing humor magazine called National Lampoon, which was a precursor to “Saturday Night Live,” The Onion and “The Daily Show.” After the enormous success of their flagship film, “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” along came the first comedy about Clark W. Griswald. “National Lampoon’s Vacation” was an instant success in 1983, ably tapping into the …

Movie Review: Trainwreck

Amy Schumer’s blunt, unguarded, sometimes explicit and always funny brand of stand-up comedy makes an easy transition to fictional narrative. After a series of strong stand-up specials, memorably cutting appearances on celebrity roasts and seasons of the inventively naughty and hysterically funny “Inside Amy Schumer,” she deservedly makes an easy move to big screen comedy. Playing (perhaps) a version of …
