Just when I think I’m out, the “Transformers” franchise pulls me back in! “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts” is the seventh installment of the series, and a stand-alone sequel to 2018’s “Bumblebee.” In the film, the Autobots (led by Peter Cullen’s Optimus Prime) must team up with two reluctant humans (Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback)… Continue reading ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’ Review: Maybe Bay Was the Problem?
My favorite time of year at the movies is the summer, and while the field has shifted in recent years as far as when summer season starts and ends and when big-budget films get released, the term “blockbuster” is still synonymous with the season, as seen with “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” kicking things… Continue reading 2023 Summer Box Office Predictions
As we put 2017 in the rearview mirror, a year full of big hits but many box office bombs, we look ahead to 2018.

For each film, I’ll list my Projections for the film’s… Continue reading 2017 Summer Box Office Recap
We’re officially more than six months into 2017 and that means it’s time to recap what’s happened so far in the world of cinema.

Here’s a rundown of… Continue reading 2017 Movies: Midway Report
