Review: DEADPOOL 2

By Renee’ C.

Rating: 5 (Out of 5 Reels)

Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (A.K.A. Deadpool) (Ryan Reynolds), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy of supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable (Josh Brolin) (IMDB).

To say this film is crass, lewd, and downright nasty at times is an understatement. If you are not a fan of those things do not see this film because there is even more in this film than the first installment. Read more »

Born in Argentina, Jorge Mario Bergoglio would grow up to become a Catholic priest and later achieve the highest position in the church.  As Francis, the first pope from Latin America, the new leader of the Catholic Church hopes to usher in a more progressive age with an open-minded attitude towards the problems and issues of humanity, as well as taking a non-condemning position to the realities of modern lifestyles.  This new documentary by acclaimed filmmaker Wim Wenders sheds more light on today’s Pope and on why he has taken a more unconventional approach to his work.

Review: BOOK CLUB

By Liz Lopez        

Rating: C+

I have viewed the trailer for the film “Book Club” for a couple of months and anticipated viewing it, despite feeling pretty sure that the story would be entirely too predictable by debuting director Bill Holderman and his co-writer Erin Simms. It has a great cast, but they can only do so much with the script. The performances are wonderful and there is some humor in the film that was not yet revealed in the trailers. Certainly, there is a huge demographic that will be highly likely to want to see the film in the theater, but I strongly recommend to save their movie bucks and go see it at a matinee price or on the “Discount Day” some theaters may offer.    Read more »
