Corny, action-packed, 'F8' understands what it is

This is a wash-rinse-repeat heist movie that has some heart, solid action and a dash of humor. Don’t expect anything else and you’ll be fine.

Lasting impressions

I feel fortunate to have the upbringing I had. Growing up in Washington D.C. with a bunch of wonderful kids in my neighborhood – kids from Greek and Jewish families, Catholics, Russians, Italians, Yugoslavians — how lucky was I to have been thrown into su

My most anticipated summer 2017 movies

Here are my seven most anticipated summer films, starting next month and ending during the last week of August.

Movie review: 'Power Rangers' tries, fails to be one-size-fits-all

There are some moments that are similar to “Chronicle,” Josh Trank’s 2012 film about three teenagers that stumble upon super powers, but there are also moments when director Dean Israelite’s “Power Rangers” feels like a Saturday cartoon.

Movie Review: All flash, no substance: 'Kong: Skull Island' underwhelming

If you are looking for destructive beast-vs-beast action you won’t be disappointed. If you’re looking for story, character development or good pacing and dialogue, you will be left wanting your money back.

Movie Review: 'Moonlight' lives up to lofty expectations

“Moonlight,” which is based off Tarell Alvin McCraney’s play “In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue,” does not come without flaws but I think that’s the purpose of this film.

Movie Review: 'Rings':First you watch it. Then you die… of boredom

Director F. Javier Gutiérrez’s “Rings” is a disappointing disaster.

Movie Review: ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ more of the same, in a good way

Is the sequel, “John Wick: Chapter 2,” better than the first? No. But it is nonetheless a whimsical and unpredictable dose of high-octane action that will leave you with your mouth open time and again.

Movie Review: 'A Cure for Wellness' not quite a comeback for Verbinski

“A Cure for Wellness” is not quite what I expected or would have wished for from Verbinski, but it challenged me enough that I can say I’m excited for him to do something similar but not as convoluted or heavy.

Movie Review: Risk-taking 'Get Out' is a masterpiece

Jordan Peele’s directorial debut is a masterpiece that doesn’t rely on crappy special effects, funhouse jump scares or cheap and dated plot twists
