Gifted
Gifted (2017)
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Every once in a while you stumble across a movie that will genuinely pluck the old heart strings without being heavy handed in doing so, and Gifted is just such a movie. The movie is a about a man taking care of his prodigy niece, and even though it is uncle taking care of niece, make no mistake it is a father/daughter picture. Any dads out there will know, there is nothing like the relationship between a father and daughter. Gifted isn't going to win any awards, and isn't the greatest drama of the year. What it is to me is a real picture dealing with real issues. The movie touches on depression, bullying, parenting, and most of all how important a dad is to raising a girl. This movie has one of the sweetest scenes I have seen in a movie in quite some time, and did nothing short of bring just a giant smile to my face. There is also one of the toughest scenes in a film I have seen in a while outside of last years Manchester by the Sea. Treat yourself to Gifted, especially if you have a daughter or a special relationship with a niece, you will be glad you did.

The Fate of the Furious
11 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

So here's some idea for future Fast and Furious action scenes. 1. A car chase scene while driving on the ocean. 2. Car chase scene while driving across lava. 3. Car chase scene on the moon. All of these make about as much sense as anything that happened in the 8th installment of this series. I mean I know this is supposed to be a fun time with action aplenty, but this time it is like the director and writers said who cares if any of this makes sense? Driving on ice like it is blacktop? Sure why not, we showed one guy in a skid while driving a sports car on ice. C'mon man, I mean at least try. When my man Jason Statham is the best thing happening in a movie, there's some trouble.

Ghost in the Shell
27 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is a Blade Runner meets The Matrix type of thing that is full of color and special effects, but not much else. I mean good for Scarlet Johansson that she deviates from the Marvel franchises and does some of these weird sci-fi flicks and all, but this thing doesn't make a whole lot of sense. So does it make sense that one dude speaks nothing but Japanese, but the rest of the people talk to him in English and he understands it? The action sequences in this movie aren't anything special here either, so with nothing special, just move along.

CHIPS
CHIPS (2017)
33 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

So a few years ago there was a comedy called Let's Be Cops that was silly and dumb, but funny. We also had the A Team and 21 Jump Street. I actually liked all of those flicks as they made me laugh quite a lot. I really wanted to like Chips despite never watching the original TV show, however there was one major problem as it isn't that funny. I think there's plenty of opportunity to be funny here and of course there is plenty of low brow attempts at humor, but nothing really all that clever. There's decent chemistry between Dax Shepard and Michael Pena, but when it comes down to it, the script isn't all that great. If you are a guy and enjoy guy comedies, go see it during the cheapest of matinees, otherwise, just wait to rent it at home, and upset the lady in your life.

Life
Life (2017)

½

Think part Alien, part The Thing, part Mission to Mars and part Gravity and you get Life. This movie has the acting and for sure a good little monster. It is a little disjointed and a few times I was like, what just happened? However, I don't mind looking past that because the film doesn't ever really take the easy way out like it could have. The script is decent enough and the story is good enough, but what is both good and bad is that this thing just jumps right in and doesn't mess around with much of a build up. If you like the sci fi stuff, you will likely like this. If not, stay away.
