    Zombieland: Double Tap

    ★★★½

    Is the curse of bad, decades in the waiting, long awaited comedy sequels broken? I mean how can I not love a movie that references one of my all time favorites Terminator 2 so much. 

    Seriously though, Zombieland 2 was an enjoyable  and funny sequel that I enjoyed almost as much as the first film. While lot the jokes are used from the first Zombieland, it’s easy to look past when the chemistry of the main cast is so great.…

    A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

    ★★★½

    The Shining

    ★★★★½

    “Here’s Johnny”

Something you can always expect from a Stanley Kubrick film. From the beginning you see these wide shots of the landscape to illustrate the isolation the characters are in to the snowy end in the maze which was great.

    Jack Nicholson was mesmerizing in this, he totally goes off the rails and really helps show Jacks decent to madness. Easy to see why this is a classic and seen as a all time great horror.

    Ad Astra

    ★★★★

    A little Apocalypse Now meets Blade Runner 2049. A slow meditative look into a man who is still dealing with his fathers abandonment and everything that comes with it. Beautiful to look at especially in IMAX, Brad Pitt delivers in the main role as well.
