Magnificent 7 review: A western done to perfection

The Hit:




The Verdict:
GREEN LIGHT (Go See it)


Magnificent is a western worth watching and if you pass on this, you will surely regret it. The only change I wish they would of had is more backstory on each of the seven members who include: Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Faraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawk), Jack Horne (Vincent D'Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung- Hun Lee), Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier) and Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo). Sure they get them all together just fine, but I would have liked more of a story for each, even if it would have made the movie longer. Magnificent 7 is a story about vengeance towards the villain of the story Bartheolomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard) who has taken over a town. One damsel by the name of Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett) looks for help and she sure found the warriors to do it. Again, if you like westerns, this is not one to miss.

Sully Review: Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks are golden

The Hit:




The Verdict:
GREEN LIGHT (Go See it)

Tom Hanks takes the role of Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger in this breathtaking miracle on the Hudson. As said in the movie it was the one good thing involving planes in New York City. Hearing that in the movie and during the weekend of 9/11 it was rather touching in a way and Clint Eastwood as the director of this flick made it just that much better. If you recall American Sniper and the storyline and visuals and everything else involved in that movie that made it great, Clint made "Sully" just as good in directing this one. They are both totally different movies, don't get me wrong, but this was really touching as we see Captain Sully save lives when both engines go out on his plane. We see him become a hero and the struggles he goes through when those that are doubting him and his choice of doing what he did weigh him down.

Don't Breathe Review: a perfect thriller ride to end the summer

The Hit:

Don't Breathe is a wild, scary adventure and if you want your heart pounding, this is the flick for you. It reminded me of Disturbia but a whole lot more invested in horror and thriller aspects.

The actors; Stephen Lang played a really good blind man who is also not afraid to permanently mess up any intruders in his house. Jane Levy played Rocky, Dylan Minnette as Alex, and Daniel Zovatto as Money. Those three have been robbing peoples homes for pocket change and when they hear that this blind man is sitting on a lot of money they decide to make his house their next target. All three have their reasons for going along with it but their main objective is to leave the city they are currently in and start a better life somewhere else, so succeeding in getting this money is a must. 

Things go as planned but little do they realize this person (who happens to be an old war veteran) they are robbing is more than meets the eye and if they want to steal this money they are gonna have to knock him out or maybe even murder him. When the lights go, you can't breathe or make a sound or else the blind man with enhanced other senses will find you and you are done for.

Don't Breath is a film worth watching on the big screen so don't pass it up. There's also a crazy twist thrown in.  Three people versus a blind man, who will win? That's for you to find out in this suspenseful thriller of a ride.

The Verdict:

GREEN LIGHT (Go See it)
