    Movie Review: ‘Valerian’ Has a Thousand Ideas, Little Personality

    Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

    You can tell that Luc Besson wrote and directed this sci-fi adventure with the way he places his efforts more on developing a fantastic galaxy of starships and aliens than most of the characters that occupy the universe of Valerian.

Last month, I had to endure Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight where the volume was cranked so loud that I was wondering what would break first: the speakers or my eardrums. I now endured Nolan’s World War II epic that turns the volume up just …

    Movie Review: ‘The Little Hours’ Has Nuns, Witches, Lords & Laughs

    The Little Hours Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

    The Little Hours has a decadent 14th-century setting with a hilariously dirty mouth, playing in the vernacular of a book report on The Decameron written by a filthy-minded high school student. In this world of convents, castles and witchcraft, the nuns run in cliques, the priests are drunks and the lords of castles have bickering marriage problems. Essentially, it is …

    Movie Review: ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Is a Youthful Jolt of Superhero Joy

    Spider-Man: Homecoming Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

    Sony’s third stab at Spider-Man with Spider-Man: Homecoming is a charm. Tom Holland is a Peter Parker that is more plucky, wide-eyed, humorous, conflicted and a pleasure to be around, far from the angst and depression of Andrew Garfield. He exists in a world where the web-slinging hero can foil a simple bike theft, chat with Iron Man and try to …
