The Shack Review

A HEAVY-HANDED TEST OF FAITH


 

Over the past several years, Hollywood has touched upon many different genres, presenting hundreds of feature films with a wide range of fields of interests. Some make us laugh, some make us cry, some even make us scared, but what about the ones that make us turn towards our religious faith (most notably with Christian based films). Of late, there’s been spurts of these types movies, including the biblical ones like Noah, Risen, and The Young Messiah to more contemporary motion pictures like Miracles from Heaven, Heaven is for Real, and God’s Nod Dead (and its 2016 sequel). Now Summit Entertainment and director Stuart Hazeldine present the film The Shack, based on the popular book by William P. Young. Does this latest Christian film finds its message of faith or is its religious overtones too heavy-handed? Read more

Hidden Figures Review

THE UNSUNG WOMEN OF NASA


 

The history of NASA is filled with bountiful stories of men and women who served for the greater good in launch astronauts into space. From the Challenger missions to the Apollo missions (the moon landing in Apollo 11 and the infamous Apollo 13) to the formation of the International Space Station in 1998, NASA has had an illustrious history in being a leader in the world’s space expedition. Of course, many will know of the famous “Space Race” that the United States and Russia faced from 1957-1975. However, many don’t know of the tale of the three NASA women (during the 1960s) and how they establish themselves and succeed in become important figures within the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Now, 20th Century Fox and director Theodore Melfi present that particular untold story in the film Hidden Figures. Does this movie finds the right trajectory or does it miss it mark completely?

Logan Review

JACKMAN’S LAST STAND


 

Logan. Wolverine. Hugh Jackman. The X-Men have had a bumpy road, navigating through the tales of various mutant characters with some powerhouse hitters to mediocre endeavors. However, the one constant in all the movies is the character of Logan (aka Wolverine) and the actor (Hugh Jackman) who plays him. Ever since the first X-Men movie, Jackman has always played the character, a perfect for such fearless and ferocious comic book mutant. Whether he’s playing a central role in the movie (X-Men, X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: Days of Future Past), starring in his own spinoff film (X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine) or making a cameo appearance (X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Apocalypse), Jackman has demonstrated his dedication to moviegoers and fans of the “X-Men” cinematic universe, portraying the adamantium-clawed mutant and maintain the classic Wolverine trademark persona presence (i.e. gruff, meaty, a bit feral / animalistic, and always chewing on a cigar). However, just like the passage of time, Jackman can’t keep on playing the character forever, even if he’s a fan-favorite to many.  Now, in a sort of swansong moment, Hugh Jackman prepares for his final role as the titular mutant as 20th Century Fox and director James Mangold present the film Logan. Does this finale piece send Jackman’s Logan off masterfully or has the inherit hype and heavy fan base scrutiny of the “Old Man Logan” storyline diminished the movie altogether? Read more
