Rating History

American Assassin
23 hours ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Michael Keaton certainly has made quite the comeback the past few years with a few Oscar nominations and such. However, he has stayed away from the more commercial films until now with American Assassin. Quite frankly this is a film of what could have been. Keaton is solid and has a few kind of crazy moments in the film. Otherwise, it's a film that is full of quick edit action scenes, and a storyline that is close to being decent. I should have known the film wouldn't be all that good since Taylor Kitsch is in it. I mean is he ever in a good movie? I kind of like Kitsch, and he's not horrible in this movie. However, too many not horrible is a reason to more then likely skip this one.

mother! (2017)
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Ever leave a movie and say, did I like that movie or hate it? You see it isn't very often that I walk out of a film confused, but leaving the film Mother! I sure did. Now I don't want to give away the film, although you might be better off and enjoy it more if I did. I got that there are religious undertones in the film and that what we were watching was more then meets the eye. However, it wasn't until I read more about the flick after watching it that I truly got it. I mean the acting is good and all, and through the first two acts you are thinking what in the world does all this mean? Then during a all hell is breaking loose third act, you are really saying, what the heck? I like what the film is attempting to do, I really do. Way too often films take the easy way out. I'm not an art house film lover, and this one borders that type of film. It can be so over the top, and trying to say so many things that most of us are just left scratching our heads. I would also say that the previews are a little misleading on what type of film this actually is. Finally, while it has many religious undertones, the theology is questionable at best. If you want a head scratcher, check it out. Otherwise, maybe you might want to pass on this one.

The Hitman's Bodyguard
11 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

So two of the guys that have made me laugh a fair amount the past decade or so teamed up for a odd couple type of comedy/action flick. Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are in The Hitman's Bodyguard. This by no means is a great piece of cinema, but it's a little better then average. Reynolds plays the straight guy, and pulls off some pretty decent one liners. All the while, Jackson is giving the audience what it wants by dropping his well known f-bomb laced tirades. As a movie, things pretty much stick with the per usual formula, but Jackson and Reynolds are enough to see this thing. If you like these guys, you likely won't be too disappointed. If these two are not on your favorites list, then skip it.
