Aladdin (2019) [a film review by Frank Ochieng].

Gather around in unison folks as the continuous chanting of ‘they should have left it well alone’ echoes against the Disney walls. Of course, when the first attempt to strike gold prevails then why not give it a shot the second time around? Unfortunately for the vibrant but lacklustre Guy Ritchie directed/co-written live-action take on […]

Alita: Battle Angel [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

It should not be such a novelty act to witness resilient feminine empowerment at the helm of an adventurous SF-oriented manga film. It also should not be a curiosity as to why such an adventurous SF-oriented manga film be considered merely serviceable especially coming from the notable creative likes of heralded and profiled filmmakers James […]

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Well, ‘The Lego Movie’ film franchise can at least say that it had its playful run throughout the years since the original blueprint became a sensation back in 2014. This is not bad for a popular toy-turned-desired movie series that incorporated its winning charm, imagination, and wit to adoring audiences. ‘The Lego Movie’ pretty much raised the bar as […]

Miss Bala [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Clearly, enlisting the vivacious actress Gina Rodriguez as an exotic, harried heroine out to kick some Mexican baddie tail in the action and adventure cross-border crime caper ‘Miss Bala‘ was a no-brainer. Gorgeous, gung-ho and gamey, Rodriguez seems like the perfect choice to entice both genders to the box office as they witness her badass beauty self […]

Suicide Squad (film review by Frank Ochieng)

Summertime 2016 has not been very kind to DC Comics-based personalities looking to shine consistently like their big screen Marvel Comics counter-parts. Following the super-sized dud that was ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice’, released a few months ago, must really put some major pressure on Warner Bros. to gamble on ensuring that the presence of ‘Suicide Squad’ does […]

Tracers (2015) (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Okay, so maybe cinema life has not been so kind to hunky hotshot Taylor Lautner in the aftermath of the phenomenon ‘Twilight’ film series that had a majority of hysterical young female admirers drooling over their bags of stale movie house popcorn. The good news for the youthful muscled Romeo is that there will be […]

Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Some over-stuffed blockbuster actioners boldly boast their explosive and invigorating productions with dynamic glee. Well, the ‘Mission: Impossible’ film franchise echoes this same sentiment, with flashy fifty-something star Tom Cruise still carrying that boyish exuberance that never seems to miss a beat, and can breathe a sigh of relief because the latest chapter will not disappoint in […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Marvel Comics’ favorite webslinger is back to his crime-fighting ways as he boldly claims to be amazing but the consensus is anything but what it is advertised in actuality. One could probably label the aptly named director Marc Webb’s comic book caper ‘The Anemic Spider-Man 2′ but then again, this movie title would not go over too […]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (film review by Frank Ochieng).

One certainly cannot go wrong when presenting Marvel Comics super-heroes on the big screen as these action-packed gems mean big business at the box office. Okay…maybe with an exceptional dud here and there ( ‘Thor: The Dark World’ anyone?) the Stan Lee universe continues to rule at the cinema complexes worldwide with larger than life […]

Non-Stop (film review by Frank Ochieng).

So the steely-eyed, sixty-something Liam Neeson is at it again carrying both an itchy trigger finger and a grudge on his action-packed aging shoulders. In the frantic aviation thriller ‘Non-Stop’, Neeson continues his late career joyride into a matured badass out to kick some serious butt in yet another eye-rolling generic actioner. True, it would be […]
