Pacific Rim Uprising Review

Pacific Rim Uprising delivers everything it promises on the poster, an over the top spectacle of robots vs monsters that is as exciting a ride in March as anything ever released during the summer movie season. Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim was a surprisingly solid movie, considering it was a story that could be boiled down to the B-movie plot of “giant robots fight giant monsters.” Steven S. DeKnight’s sequel, subtitled Uprising, is tonally and stylistically a very different movie than the one del Toro brought us in 2013, inRead More

Pacific Rim Uprising Review: An Unrelenting Blast of Mo…

Pacific Rim Uprising is a rollicking robot and monster beatdown. There’s a story wedged in between the carnage. It’s fairly silly and nonsensical, but thankfully doesn’t detract from the entertainment value of the film. No one is walking into this sequel expecting a think piece. It’s a popcorn spectacle with a new batch of likeable characters. Pacific Rim Uprising is twenty minutes shorter than the original. That’s a wise move from the studio and production team. They’ve delivered an all killer, no filler ride at the box office. Set tenRead More

Unsane Review: Claire Foy Shines in Soderbergh’s Murky …

Steven Soderbergh goes low tech with mixed results. His latest feature, Unsane, is a B-movie horror thriller shot entirely with iPhone cameras. The technical gimmick wears thin as the film’s plot unravels. Unsane has a weak script that gives up the goods too soon. The psychological tension is sadly wasted. That’s a bummer because British actress Claire Foy delivers a dynamite performance. Sawyer Valentini (Claire Foy) is a banking analyst adjusting to life in a new city. She has a terse, agitated personality that ruffles her coworkers. Her only friendRead More

An airliner is taken by hijackers, the passengers are kept as hostages, the hijackers have to get along with each other in order to achieve their ends, a foreign government must decide what to do about it, a military must prepare for a potentially armed incursion, and if thatRead More

Ready Player One Review – CINEMABLEND

While not quite peak Spielberg, Ready Player One is a fun exploration of pop culture with a fantastic sense of spectacle that mostly makes up for some weak plotting. Roughly halfway through Ready Player One, our scrappy, young heroes find themselves running through a warehouse as a group of armed, uniformed soldiers comes crashing through all of the doors to take them into custody. The music swells, and a game of cat and mouse ensues. At this point, it becomes apparent that we haven’t seen this type of pure escapistRead More
