Avengers: Infinity War Review 
    The days of post-credits and minor glimpses of Thanos has ended. The Russo brothers have finally brought the Mad Titian to do battle in Avengers: Infinity War and it is every bit of epic awesomeness we waited for!     Infinity War starts off with a bang!  There is no slow build-up to the first battle scene, nope not here. We see Thanos (Josh Brolin), standing over the bodies of refugee Asgardians from Thor: Ragnarok, already in possession of the power stone. He has Thor in a head lock with just two fingers, he then turns to Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and asks for the space stone.  At the same time, the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) comes out of nowhere and proceeds to Hulk Smash.  Well you know that didn’t go well.  It went so wrong that the next time we see the Hulk; he has crash landed into the New York Sanctum Sanctorum where he meets Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Seeing this, Loki hands over the space stone.
Down on earth, since we last saw the Avenger…

Rampage Review
Brad Peyton’s entertaining and action-packed adaptation of the 1980’s arcade game Rampage hits the big screen with a familiar path of destruction we have seen many times before.  Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson) is an ex-Army special op turned primatologist who trains gorillas in the wildlife sanctuary of the Wyoming Zoo.  Davis is especially close to George, an albino gorilla whom he saved from poachers as a baby and raised. Together they have an unshakable bond that can only be described as brotherly.  This bond is put to the test when a genetic experiment crashes into the wildlife sanctuary and its mysterious green mist infects George giving him increased strength and he has increased in weight and height and unpredictable fits of rage.  Davis doesn’t know what happened to his gentle buddy, but he is trying to keep the incident quiet because if it got out, George will put be down. 
Meanwhile, Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris), a discredited genetic engineer, and former ge…

A Quiet Place:

John Krasinski’s thriller, A Quiet Place is a breath of fresh air to the genre, but it leaves you with more questions than answers.     In a post-apocalyptic future, the world is quiet. Other than nature, there is NO sounds/noise. No cars, buses, music, talking, singing, laughing etc., because if it were, the strange alien creatures who hunt by sound, will kill you. This is the tone of the entire movie. The story opens up with the Abbott family tip-toeing around a general store looking for food, supplies but mostly for medicine for Marcus (Noah Jupe) who is sick. Then you see the youngest brother Beau (Cade Woodward) drawing a rocket on the floor and his older sister Regan (Millicent Simmonds), who is deaf, watching. He later finds a toy rocket to bring home to play with.  As the family prepares to leave, Lee (John Krasinski) sees the toy rocket little Beau has in hand and speaking through sign language, quickly took the batteries out of the toy and told him it would…

Pacific Rim: Uprising


Steven DeKnight’s Pacific Rim: Uprising is a promising sequel with amazing special effects that fell flat on its face like a punch from a Rock’em Sock’em robot with bad actor chemistry and a non-existent storyline.  Uprising takes place ten years after Staker Pentecost (Iris Elba) sacrificed himself to close the breach and end the envision by the Precursors.  His son, Jake (John Boyega) who was once a member of the Pan Pacific Defense Corps (PPDC), is now living the high life as a scavenger in what used to be Puerto Rico and could care less what is going on in the world.  Jake is particularly good at getting things that other scavengers can’t. Especially, parts of decommissioned Jaegers for those who want to build their own bootlegged version.  While scavenging parts in a nearby jaeger graveyard, Jake crosses paths with Amara (Cailee Spaeny), a spunky, mouthy and intelligent young girl who is also there to get parts to finish building her own Jaeger. The two ar…
