Donald Trump Gets A Haircut In An Effort To Look More Presidential

In an effort to look more Presidential, Donald J. Trump got a haircut today.  He has political Leaders all over the world talking about it and women swooning all over the world as they can’t believe how much younger and sexier he looks without what previously appeared to be an orange cat sitting on top of his head.  Although it was a good decision to get his golden locks trimmed and it makes him look a lot better, I don’t think it will help him make any more Presidential decisions that will have a more significant impact on the world…

Allied

Writing Movie “WRONGS” By Jim West Allied Directed by Robert Zemeckis Written by Steven Knight Robert Zemeckis has a great resume of films under his belt.  Back to the Future, Forest Gump, and even had moderate success in the horror genre.  Yet it is drama that his name invokes thoughts of so when Allied featured a trailer that shows Allied as a dramatic thriller I figure this may be something worth watching as he has mastered both.  I was completely wrong on both fronts of drama and thriller.  With a single writer for the screenplay, I will assume this is…

Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters (Remake) Directed by Paul Fieg Written by Katie Dippold and Paul Feig Hollywood loves to dig up beloved films from movies past and ‘reimagine’ them for a remake for today’s audiences.  Sometimes this works, such as with films like Scorsese’s The Departed (Remake of the 2002 Infernal Affairs) or Cape Fear (remake of the 1962 film of same name), but more often than not it fails horribly.  First of all for most fans of the original will hold a special place in their minds.  Second if you imagine to overcome the fondness for the original you have to choose…

The Accountant

The Accountant Directed by Gavin O’Connor Written by Bill Dubuque It has been a good year for Ben Affleck.  Especially now that he seems positioned as DC’s center actor to bring the Justice League together much akin to Robert Downey’s role in the Marvel universe.  Seeing him jump into an action film with a slight twist is a safe move for Ben, but the film felt just in a word…”safe”. Now the action sequences are good, but where this film falls flat is not having more flashbacks to show the gradual increase of ability or further develop the intrigue of…

Write-In Ballot Voting

It is without a doubt that this election is a nasty one.  Both candidates have their faults, dark pasts, current transparency battles, and many Americans are doubting whether or not either one is fully worthy of leading our country.  Regardless of the many different tactics and techniques that each candidate used to get to where they are, it is the voter who ultimately put them in that position; so who’s to really blame?  However, at the opposite end of the spectrum, what can you do?  An alternate solution of voting for someone who is not on the ballot is to…

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad Directed by David Ayer Written by David Ayer This is a film that honestly should not have been made yet.  People will argue that point due to their drooling over Margot Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn (yes I liked those scenes also).  I can easily say this film is a direct result of Guardians of the Galaxy’s success.  Yet this film suffers from the easy storyline of destroying New York.  I for one and sick and tired of watching film after film with a plot line of destroying New York (aka the world according to Hollywood).  Teenage Mutant…
