Spenser Confidential (2020)

Mark Wahlberg made his Netflix debut in a cop film that is filled with dry humour and plenty of violence. I found myself laughing out loud as Wahlberg struggled to adapt to life outside of prison while trying to solve a murder that he has no business getting involved with.¬† I love any movie that … More Spenser Confidential (2020)

Proud Mary (2018)

The biggest thing I took away from Proud Mary is I am happy that I never got involved in gangs or “families” in the Boston area. We all know that line of work is really dicey. There are many ways in, but no way out. Complications will always arise. The best have a way to … More Proud Mary (2018)

Stronger (2017)

Most people know by now that anything related to Boston hits home with me because I’m from that area. Patriots Day is still one of my favourite movies because it was an inspiring look at heroes who tried to deal with an unprecedented terrorist attack. Sadly many people were injured and killed, so naturally, survivors … More Stronger (2017)

The Heat (2013)

1/10 The Heat was one heck of a hot mess. This story was a horrible attempt to jump into the cop buddy comedy genre, trying to break the mould with two women instead of guys. These girls failed at ever getting me to believe they could actually be a team, let alone any attempt to … More The Heat (2013)

21 (2008)

7/10 I’ve never been to a casino to gamble, so I still have zero clue what counting cards really means. 21 is based on true story about some overly smart kids who learn how to win at Blackjack and take Vegas for millions, until a few stupid moments bring down their whole empire. Kevin Spacey … More 21 (2008)

Legally Blonde (2001)

8/10 You would be hard press to find someone who hasn’t seen Legally Blonde, some 16 years after it’s release. What makes this movie so enjoyable is it takes two completely different lifestyles and crashes them together. I think even the most cynical person would find this story about a sorority girl enrolling Harvard Law … More Legally Blonde (2001)

Monument Ave. (1998)

2/10 Boston seems to have the most ruthless gangs in America because so many movies about the city focus on organized crime, like Monument Ave. Despite having a bunch of headline actors and actresses, this is a poor man’s version of an actual gangster flick. The setting is gritty, the characters are really messed up, … More Monument Ave. (1998)

The Verdict (1982)

6/10 The Verdict features a story we have seen a hundred times before, the one where our main character is a lawyer who needs a big case win to save his career. The interesting part of the whole story is the subject matter isn’t what we’ve come to see in other movies. Yes medical malpractice … More The Verdict (1982)
