These aren't really reviews so much as it is to let you decide to spend the money on it or not. Movies can cost a lot of $$. Night movies (i just one today) are $11.00 each.

* Special prices on Tuesdays.

If you are an AMC Premium Card holder ( that you paid $15.00 a year for), movies are:   
1. $5.49 until 4pm.
2. $5.99 after 4pm.

Lots and lots of action! If you like true war stories, then this is for you. ... I don't think young kids would be that interested though. 

It is absolutely amazing what men go through during war!  I guess you find out what you're made of one way or another.

There is so much going on, you don't have a second to leave for more popcorn (or what ever). lol

I personally liked it a lot... No, there were really any top box office movie stars in it, but it didn't matter, in fact, I think it was better without them, this way it made it more real.

I gave it an 9 out of 10.







July 14, 2017

If you are a fan of the apes movies, you'll like this. More of a story line I think than the others. 

Kinda long if you aren't one to sit long (2 hrs & 22 mins). 

Personally, I think I would have like it better if it was shorter, still real good though.

                       I gave it an 8.5 out of 10.





June 08, 2017

Really cute. If you like the other one's, you'll love this. Funny for the whole family.

I gave it an 8.5 out of 10.




June 16, 2017

This movie didn't get very good ratings by either "Rotten Tomatoes" or the "Audience", but I thought they were pretty hard on it.

I admit, the 2nd half had too much fighting, but the first have was pretty good. Not that the whole movie wasn't worth seeing, but the ending got to be a smidge boring because the fighting went on and on, it was just too much for my liking, but if you are into that kind of stuff, then you'll like it a lot.

Tom Cruise  is Tom Cruise, he was really good in it.

Would I have paid to see it knowing what I know now? Yeah, but only if there were no other good movies out at the same time.

 I gave it an  7.5 out of 10.






May 26, 2017

Ya gotta love Jack Sparrow! lol 

Tons of action from beginning to end.

It's Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean, what more do I need to say?

I gave it an 9.5 0ut of 10.




May 11, 2017

I've seen this lead actor in an off beat (not well known) movie in the theater at least a year ago that was in Spanish only (a comedy with captions). It was way funny, so I thought I'd try this newer one of his. It did not let me down, in fact, it was way better than the other one he starred in.

Basically its about him being a male gigolo (tastefully). 

After mooching off of a rich 80 year old woman, she dumps him for a younger guy. lol

His once wonderful life is turned upside down and he becomes homeless overnight.

He has no where to turn but to his sister (Salma Hayek) who has had little to no contact with him in many years.

This is purely (IMO) for adults. Its not for adults because of anything inappropriate, its just a story line that younger viewers may not care for (for sure young children).

I gave it an 8.5 out of 10.




May 10, 2017

O'tay, not based on a true story (but it sure would be cool if it was lol).

Soooooo.... if you have money to blow, and there are no other movies to see, and you are bored to tears, go ahead.

Very cheesy!  Lots of prehistoric animals fighting (which means LOTS of blood and guts).

This is geared mainly towards teenagers who like this kind of stuff.

Even if you are a King Kong fan, I've seen better.

I gave it  a 5.0 out of 10.





April 27, 2017

Based on a true story (yeah, I'm a sucker for true stories lol).

A British explorer goes into the Amazon to find evidence of a previous civilization. 

Very good acting  and lots of action.  


I gave it  a 9.0 out of 10.






April 22, 2017

This was based on a true story. 

There seems to be an interest in movies about war for the last year or so some reason. This one was incredibly good (as well as the one below).

At the beginning of WWI, the Turkish government is trying to eliminate the Armenian people by genocide.  

A large group of Armanian friends, family and others find their way to escape, but are soon confronted by the Turkish soldiers. 

Excellent movie! 


I gave it  a 9.5 out of 10.











April 21, 2017

This was also based on a true story. 

It takes place in Warsaw, Poland during the war with Germany.

Basically about a family who owns a local Zoo in which the Nazis take it over for their purposes.

The movie is kinda slow through out, but later moves along a lot better. 

* Warning: Even though this was a PG-13, it did have a couple of nude scenes (split second ones) which really surprised me that it would contain that, aside from that, excellent movie. Needless to say, not for kids.

I gave it  a 9 out of 10.










April 1, 2017

I had no idea how funny this was going to be.

Mary and I laughed and laughed the whole way through. This turned out to be WAY better than I ever expected. 

It's for children for sure, but there was adult humor from beginning to the end. 

Its a must see!

This may sound odd (because I rarely give out a 10) but we both gave it  a 10 out of 10.

* Update: I took my grandkids to see it on May 20th (ages 13, 10, 8 & 5), the three older ones said it was so far the best movie of the year. They absolutely loved it.







March 26, 2017

I'm probably the last person to see this. lol I heard nothing but really good reviews on it (both movie critics and movie goers). 

There was a lot of hype over this, so I was expecting a lot. 

The graphics of course were over the top great (that only Disney can do).

I've seen the older version, and liked it a lot, but I liked this one much more, so oh yeah, its a must see.

BTW, I saw it in 3D, the only way to go for this movie.

                    I give it an  9.5 out of 10.






I'm sorry, but just the name and the first 30 seconds of an online preview made me not want to see it. lol  Maybe for H.S. kids who play basketball?? lol








March 23, 2017 

I was REALLY looking forward to this movie, but to be honest, I was disappointed. To "me", it was very very slow, and very VERY cheesy. 

The acting wasn't all that, and the people who were suppose to be God (or Godlike) were in my opinion, pushing sacrilegious. 

The over all message was good, there were very touching moments later on, but I felt like it could have been done much better.

A lot of you sappy people who don't care (and even enjoy lol) the cheesiness, may fall in love with it. 

About 1/2 through it, I wanted to walk out, but after paying $9.75 for the ticket, that kept me from it. lol   
                      
                     I give it an  5-6 out of 10.





March 20, 2017 

I saw it twice I liked it so much.

True story about a young boy in India who gets lost at a train station and how he survives all of his experiences and ordeals.

The movie depicts his life from the time he gets lost, to his adulthood. 

A must see movie IMO.

I don't think this is a movie that a young child would be interested in or want to see.

I give it an  9.5 out of 10.




March 19, 2016 

I've seen all of them so far (not a huge fan, but I go because Mary likes them a lot lol), but I have to admit, of all of them, this is the best. The graphics, the story line etc was very cool. Teenagers especially would love it. 

    I give it an  8 out of 10.






February 20, 2016

I really did think this was going to be a "soso" movie, but boy was I wrong! Unbelievable acting on Joseph Fiennes part!

I've typically never like those who portray the Savior (ok, a couple, but thats it), but the person who played Jesus looked like a regular person, someone I personally could imagine of what he would really look like.

Super movie... IMO, fantastic! A must see.

(Update: So good, I bought the DVD).

I give it an 10 out of 10.










February 19, 2016

This is the life story of Jesse Owens.

Saturday Night Live actor Jason Sudekis was very good in this as Jesse's track coach.

If you don't know much about Jesse Owens, then you really need to see this, and for those who are familiar, its still worth seeing.

                   I give it an 8.5 out of 10.
  







February 12, 2016

Do NOT waste your money, Mary and I walked out of it half way through it. Even I like dumb comedy, but this was just plain stupid and boring.
      

The movie never got going IMO.   There was a lot of hype of this movie, but it no way lived up to it.  One of the worst movies I've ever seen.  

The way I see it, if you can't give the movie at least a 6 out of 10, they should give you your money back!           
                       I give it a 1 out of 10.
  






January 30, 2016

Very very funny! This is a must see IMO. Tons of laughs, with a moral to the story (at the ending). Good enough for me to see a second time.
                      
                   I give it an  8 out of 10.





January 2016

If you liked the 1st one, you'll like the 2nd one. I personally liked it. Kevin Hart is always funny no matter what he is in.

                    I give it an 7.5 out of 10.









January 08, 2016

Based on a true story.....


Mary wanted to see this, but I didn't want to go because I thought it was going to be some dumb chick flick.. WRONG! I basically went out of shear boredom, but glad I did. 

It wasn't anything that I was expecting (mainly because I had no idea what it was about lol).

Not something to run out to see, but it is still a pretty good movie. If you don't catch it at the theater, be sure to rent it when it comes out. 


I give it an  7 out of 10.







December 11, 2015

Directed by Ron Howard - Based on the novel Moby Dick.

This is a movie that keeps you interested and on the edge of your seat (most of the time lol). There were a few swears words, not many and nothing really bad. 

It was very entertaining and well worth paying the big bucks. 


I give it an  8.5 out of 10.






November 2015

I'm typically a big James Bond fan, and even though it had a lot of action in many places,  something seemed to be missing to me. I couldn't quite put my finger on it,  I have to admit I wasn't too thrilled with it. I'm not saying it isn't worth seeing, its just not one of my favorite James Bond movies. 

I give it an  7 out of 10.








November 21, 2015

Based on a true story..... As usual, Tom Hanks was super good.

It's not a shoot 'em up, blow 'em up movie.

Tom Hanks plays a lawyer who is asked to represent a caught Soviet spy so that he gets a fair trial here in the U.S.

He ends up negotiating a caught U.S. pilots release in exchange of the Russian spy. 

I personally liked it a lot. I could see where some might think its too slow for their liking, but I thought it was very well done.

                   I give it an  8.5 out of 10.





November 21, 2015

I've seen all past Hunter Game movies, and I have to admit, I've never been a big fan. I'm sure this doesn't sit well with most of you lol, so I'm sorry.

With that said, if you are a fan, I still say the past one's were better. This was just too slow at times (even Mary leaned over to me saying it was slow).

You will still enjoy it if you are a fan, I'm just not one of them. 

Trying to be fair, I give it a 7 out of 10.






November 27, 2015

Starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman & Chiwetel Ejiofor. 

Wow! If you like a murder mystery, this one is for you! And don't even try to guess the ending, cuz you'll never figure it out. lol

Mary and I really liked it a lot. Because it is PG-13, there is some swearing (not bad though). 

There is no sex / nudity involved.

Not something for young kids to see though as the story is for adults.

You can't go wrong seeing this one.

                     I give it a 9.5 out of 10.






September 2015


I thought this was going to be a total "chick flick" (don't know what else to call it), but it wasn't. It's for both guys and gals. Pretty funny. A good date night movie. I seriously doubt any teenager would appreciate it though, mainly for adults.


give it a 8 out of 10.
