'Night Swim' Movie Review: Beware of The Pool Ghosts

Night Swim 2024 movie review

NIGHT SWIM, starring Wyatt Russell (Monarch: Legacy of Monsters) and Kerry Condon (Better Call Saul, THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN, works better as a thriller than a horror film. The characters are riveting and interesting but the payoff is lacking as the story beats fall into the usual horror tropes.

'America's Family' Movie Review: Immigration Is Much More Than A Political Stunt

America's Family 2023 movie review

AMERICA'S FAMILY comes at the right time as the conversation around the deportation of undocumented immigrants is resumed with the GOP planning to take back the White House in 2024. Now streaming on many platforms, AMERICA'S DREAM puts faces to those affected by the political game. Produced by The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) through their CHIRLA Liberty Film division, the film plays like an educational film shown at school. Regardless, the movie is a gripping tale of a family torn apart by careless policies, told in a positive light.

'Killers of the Flower Moon' Movie Review: A Devastating Tale of Greed

Killers Of The Flower Moon Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro, Lily Gladstone | Courtesy of Apple TV

Based on the true story of the 1920s Osage Tribe Murders, Martin Scorsese's KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON depicts the story from the villain's point of view (played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro) rather than from the victim's perspective. Scorsese delivers a cinematic juggernaut but the filmmaker's choices are somewhat baffling. The three-hour and 26-minute run time is felt but the intensity of the escalating events increases the tension.

‘Loki’ Season 2 Review: Better Than Season 1

Marvel Loki season 2 tom hiddleston owen wilson ke huy quan still

Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson continue to make a great team in the second season of Marvel's Loki. The second season flows at a better pace now that the Time Variance Authority (TVA) is no longer a foreign concept. With that out of the way, we can enjoy the buddy comedy of Loki and Mobius at the center of the fun.

'A Million Miles Away' Movie Review: Michael Peña Has Got The Right Stuff

michael pena million miles away prime video movie review

Michael Peña once again proves he’s one of the best actors working in Hollywood. The actor's range has no limits from playing a goofball in the ANT-MAN movies to serious roles such as his latest film, A MILLION MILES AWAY. Based on the true story of Mexican-American astronaut José Hernández, the former child migrant farm worker was rejected by NASA 11 times. The Prime Video movie is a feel-good and inspirational story.

'A Haunting in Venice' Movie Review: A Gothic Whodunit

 A Haunting in Venice movie review cinemovie

Kenneth Branagh rounds out his Hercule Poirot trilogy with A HAUNTING IN VENICE, the best of the three. The film is aesthetically pleasing and combines a murder mystery with supernatural elements. However, like the previous two, the story is a bit convoluted, and the finale is rushed.

‘King of Killers’ Movie Review: A Solid Action Movie For Home Viewing

Review: Alain Moussi and Frank Grillo in King of Killers movie 2023

Alain Moussi’s fighting prowess is on display in KING OF KILLERS, but what the former stuntman and martial arts-trained actor has to kick up a notch are his acting skills. Frank Grillo is the main attraction in KING OF KILLERS, and the actor shows up his fellow costars in this solid action movie but the film suffers from some corny and on-the-nose dialogue.

'Vacation Friends 2' Review

 John Cena, Meredith Hagner, Lil Rel Howery and Yvonne Orji in Vacation Friends 2 movie review on CineMovie

VACATION FRIENDS wasn’t the greatest movie but the odd pairing of John Cena and Lil Rel Howery and the ridiculous shenanigans made it a fun watch from the comfort of your home. The sequel, unfortunately, doesn’t live up to the hijinks of the original even with the addition of Steve Buscemi.

'Star Wars: Ahsoka' Review: A Rebels Sequel Rather Than Stand Alone

 Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano

For someone not well-versed in Dave Filoni's Rebels and The Clone Wars story and characters, the Ahsoka characters will feel a bit foreign in their relationship to each other but casual Star Wars fans will be steeped in a familiar world of Jedis and cool lightsaber duels. However, don't fret! There's plenty of exposition setting up the characters and their past history so viewers are in the loop. The first two episodes are action-filled with no downtime.

'Blue Beetle' Movie Review: You'll Laugh, Cry and Cheer

Blue Beetle movie review 2023  

To be honest, the BLUE BEETLE trailers didn’t completely sell the DC comic book adaptation although I was excited to see the first DC Latino superhero on the big screen. Thankfully, BLUE BEETLE is a huge surprise with an emotional core that drives the action rather than the other way around. While you can’t avoid your standard genre clichés, it does break them such as having the family members as sidekicks rather than merely emotional props.
