What’s happening readers! If you have not watched WW84 you probably shouldn’t read on (unless you really want to). I’m not going full blown spoiler but I will be going into details over certain scenes so putting that out there up front. Good? Alright….Go time!Continue reading MOVIES WITH MIGS: Wonder Woman 84 (Full Review)
Monsters on the big screen? SOLD!!!!! When I saw the trailer for Monster Hunter I knew I was in. The trailer shows too much (as they do these days) but I wasn’t going to miss out on seeing these crazy looking creatures in the theater. When I went to book my ticket I had the option to watch it in Dolby Cinema. SCORE!!!!! It was a fun time and I want to watch this one again in IMAX.Continue reading Movies With Migs: Monster Hunter (Spoiler Free)
What’s happening readers!! Last Friday I made it to the theater to see Come Play, a horror/thriller about a monster trying to make a boy his “best friend” by taking the boy to his world…….FOREVER! I found the film to be enjoyable even though it wasn’t scary. It had some creepy moments which turned out to be a lot of fun for me because I was in the theater by myself. I was ignorant! Like….ignant! Yelling at the screen. Telling the kids to run!! Saying “OOOHHH NOOOOOOO” really really loud! HAHAHAHA. Ahhh good times!Continue reading MOVIES WITH MIGS: COME PLAY
Jackie Chan is back and showing that he can still throw hands!! AMC Theatres are open in my area so I was browsing to see what was available to watch and I came across Vanguard. Last week was my first time seeing anything about the film but you don’t have to tell me twice when it comes to an actioneer starring Jackie Chan. The AMC I go to has the film in Dolby Cinema so I was all in. If you’ve read some of my previous reviews then you may have seen my love for Dolby. In my opinion it’s the best format when it comes to sound and presentation quality. I don’t know why Vanguard is available in this presentation though. Aside from the few eye popping scenes it’s not a huge treat for the eyes. The various gunfights had some extra oomph with the sound system so that was cool but regular format is okay here. I have AMC A List so I’ll watch anything in Dolby just because.
In the film Chan plays Tang Huanting, CEO of Vanguard, which is a company that specializes in providing protection to high profile clients. The movie opens with a small cell from Tang’s network providing protection to a client who knows a secret worth a lot of money. When an international gang fails to kidnap this client they go after his daughter so Tang’s people have to get to her as well. I won’t say anymore of the plot beyond that because that spoils the film. It’s a bang bang cat and mouse thriller, complete with awesome fight choreography, terrible dialogue, CGI straight out of a SyFy made for tv film, bullets galore and old man Jackie beating dudes down! I had a good time watching! I was chuckling at the bad CGI because WOOF. It was weird that the production used de-aging CGI on Chan’s face. We know he is old. We know he has wrinkles. His character wasn’t young so I don’t know what that was about. Seeing Jackie Chan and costars put the hurt on bad guys was awesome. Some of those fights were brutal! This movie didn’t blow me away but I found it to be enjoyable. The last two Chan films I watched (The Foreigner and Lego Ninjago) didn’t do much for me so it was great seeing him providing whoopings in this movie. Overall…….Not bad. Jackie Chan fans should enjoy this. Casual fans of action likely will also. If you have an opportunity to check this out in a theater (safely of course) I’d recommend it. I don’t see this staying around on the big screen too long so you might see it at Redbox or available to stream soon.

What’s going on readers!! If you are reading this I hope you are well and staying safe. The corona virus outbreak shut down screenings at the beginning of the year so it had been several months since I attended one. I was surprised when I received an email that said AMC theaters was hosting an early viewing of Freaky for Stubs members.Continue reading Screenings With Migs: Freaky (No Spoilers)

What’s happening movie buffs and readers!! I’m happy to announce that I’ll be starting a new segment where I pit a film against its remake in a battle style narrative.
The year is 1999. The Wachowskis gave us The Matrix, a sleeper hit that went on to become a global phenom. The story telling, the science fiction, the special effects……AMAZING!!! It’s been 21 years since its release so take that red pill with me and let’s reenter The Matrix!
