    Impractical Jokers: The Movie

    ★★★

    Impractical Jokers: The Movie takes our leading four best friends/stars from Staten Island, “Joe ‘Joe’ Gatto, James ‘Murr’ Murray, Sal ‘Sal’ Vulcano & Brian ‘Q’ Quinn” from the small screen to the big screen. The film version of their popular television show Impractical Jokers, which was also written/produced by the four leads & blandly co-written/directed by Chris Henchy, appears to lack the unpredictably spontaneous outlandish fun of the series.

    Sonic the Hedgehog

    ★★

    Sonic the Hedgehog is basically an uneventful, lame, anxiety ridden annoyance that heavily relies on CGI.

There’s a sense of realism among the characters revolving the depiction of superior upper class & desperate lower class citizens. The interactions between the two groups ultimately builds a frightening & surreal tension toward its…

    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★★★

    After a somewhat shaky start that only seemed effective in spurts, Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn somehow breaks free from its tiresome antics in its first half. As it successfully picks up on its story circling the films remaining characters & kinetic action scenes. Star Margot Robbie is perfection in the role of Harley Quinn, however the character herself grows tiresome quickly. Although Robbie is great as Quinn, she’s proved herself countless times as a virtuoso…
