Movie Review: ‘The Mummy’ Shuffles and Stumbles with Monsters and Adventure

The Mummy 2017 Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

Universal makes it very clear in their new CGI opening that The Mummy is the first picture in the Dark Universe, a franchise that will showcase all their classic movie monsters for the 21st century.

The Hero Sam Elliot Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

Unforgettable Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

Does Unforgettable live up to its name? Read our movie review to find out: Unforgettable has all the ingredients of being first-class trash. It lifts a Fatal Attraction style plot, which leads into a crazy ride of obsession, sex and knife-wielding violence.

Movie Review: ‘The Promise’ Muddily Mixes Melodrama with Genocide

The Promise Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

The Promise is very much a classroom movie, built to grant students a unique perspective of the important and horrific account of the Armenian genocide. In the aspect of conveying such horrors, the movie more or less does its job of showcasing the brutal slaughter, the inhuman slavery, the despicable level of corruption and the tragic loss of innocent lives. …
