Sing
Sing (2016)

Funny and uplifting at parts, but once the auditions are over, the film drives itself into a very predictable territory. "Sing" is like watching American Idol but with animals as the mason characters. Kids will enjoy the enjoy the message about believing in themselves, but parents will probably feel bored since they saw this tale numerous times when they were a kid.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Been a long time since I reviewed a film for this site. Let's restart with this latest installment in the Star Wars franchise, "Rogue One." Rogue One may lack the memorable score and memorable characters from its predecessors, but what makes it up for is its inspiring story about hope and overcoming the oppressors. Yes, the acting was cringeworthy and the directing was so-so, but man did the film deliver some epic action sequences!!

Lights Out
Lights Out (2016)

Was the storyline inspired by the movie, "Mama"? Several of the same plot points can be found throughout the movie. Anyway, YES, "Lights out" gave us a unique antagonist, but the scares and suspense weren't as creative or as unpredictable as James Wan own horror flicks, not to mention the original short film was way better. The whole "light switch" thing can be tiresome and predictable after the first 30 minutes. This also reminds me of the movie "Darkness Falls" back in '03. Seriously, how many movies was this inspired from? Anyway, could have been way better if they put more effort into the story.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

It has some magical, sweet moments here and there, but, overall, "Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them" is a dull, Harry Potter prequel that fails to bring something new to the table. The CGI is okay, but distracting, especially when it comes to the monster at the end. The stakes weren't set high enough and it made the film a very long, boring experience. I wished the storyline didn't derail from rescuing monsters to hunting down a psychopath that's been causing mayhem across New York. Like really, we see that storyline several times before? Hopefully the filmmakers learn from this film's mistakes.

The Last Samurai

Great acting all around, but it's not enough to overcome the whole epic Hollywood cliches that plague this film. "The Last Samurai" could have been better, but it all tumbles because of its overproduced music and its lead white actor trying to save a Japanese culture from extinction. Sappy, yet ineffective. A story that could have potential.
