Sicario: Day of the Soldado

July 1, 2018


Sicario: Day of the Soldado – I didn’t see the first Sicario but for some reason was expecting smart and snappy here. From what I could figure out, Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) is hired to stop the Mexican cartels from bringing terrorists across the border. So he and Alejandro (Benecio Del Toro) begin to start […]

Hail, Caesar

February 10, 2016


Hail, Caesar – Oh, my, this is a bad movie and I had such high hopes for it. Thought it was going to be a smart, funny spoof/parody of 1940s-1950s movies from the Coen Brothers. It isn’t.

In this new version, Gekko (Michael Douglas) is seven years out of prison and on the circuit tour promoting his new book “Is Greed Good?” when he meets […]
