Grade: B+

Oh my God! I can’t believe what I just saw! This may be a remake of the classic ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’, but a good remake with additions to improve upon its beloved predecessor? That is very unlikely to happen! You have basically the same movie, but much like each play that gets told on stage time and time again, this is a much different production, and it is all left to the director’s interpretation; the director being Kenny Ortega (‘Hocus Pocus’).

‘The Magnificent Seven’ (2016) Film Review

Grade: C-

The Western genre seems to be dishing out some more movies to cater to the modern movie-going audience into seeing some films with Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’, and ‘Django Unchained’. Antoine Fuqua (who directed ‘Training Day’ and ‘The Equalizer’) has decided to direct a western, but not just any western; this one is a remake of a classic called ‘The Magnificent Seven’ (which is also a remake of Akiro Kurosawa’s ‘Seven Samurai’). It looks like Fuqua has discovered the formula for creating a perfect Western (The costume design, the cinematography, etc.), but it feels as though he is missing a few things to make this an engaging one.

‘Special Correspondents’ Film Review.

 Grade: A

What happens when two men get into trouble? The answer is revealed in Ricky Gervais’ new comedy ‘Special Correspondents’. The premise involving a lie that completely gets out of hand has been done in a comedy before; but rarely done like this. Instead, the film delves into satire dealing with political events and even a little jab at pop culture for a brief moment. I have a feeling that Rotten Tomatoes and I are on a bit of a disagreement with films like ‘Vacation’, ‘Suicide Squad’, and ‘Ratchet & Clank; ‘Special Correspondents’ is one of those films, and it is much clever than it seems to be.

‘Pete’s Dragon’ Film Review

Score: 4.5 out of 5

What made the original ‘Pete’s Dragon’ charming was not just because it was a musical featuring a cartoon dragon in a live-action setting with real actors, but because of the relationship between an optimistic boy named Pete and his dragon friend named Elliot that made it worth watching. I was one of those kids who grew up watching the original Disney classic from 1977 on Videocassette to the point where I’ve considered it to be one of my favorite movies, so I was looking forward to this remake directed by David Lowery; I was also a little skeptical of it, because of how it was marketed as a thrilling fantasy-adventure and abandoned the musical element that made me enjoy the original so much. After seeing it however, I felt a sense of calm and realized that the decision to remake ‘Pete’s Dragon’ was much needed.
