Lamar reviews - Poltergeist

Let me go ahead and say George Clooney’s new movie Tomorrowland opens today and I could have easily gone to see that. But no! Todd of course sends me to see Poltergeist, a remake of one of the scariest PG-13 horror movies ever made. Read more...

Lamar reviews - Hot Pursuit

Sometimes when you have great comedies like The Hangover, Bridesmaids, and Pitch Perfect we tend to forget how hard comedy really is. We roll along and think that every time we buy a ticket we are going to have a hilarious time. But like the 2008 recession sometimes there has to be a correction to remind us not to take the good times for granted. To show us how bad things can get so that we truly appreciate the good things. Hot Pursuit is that correction. Read more...

Lamar reviews - Avengers - Age of Ultron

Whether you were planning to see it or not, if you had no idea that the new Avengers movie was coming out this week it must be because you were busy doing a barn raising with your Amish neighbor and had no access to any electricity. This is the summer blockbuster by which all large exploding, flying, heroic movies will be judged in 2015. Read more...

Lamar reviews - The Longest Ride

When I saw Clint Eastwood’s son Scott was a professional bull rider in this movie I was all ready for rodeo ridding and roping, buckle bunnies, and fighting. Then I realized he was the handsome, often shirtless hero in a Nicholas Sparks movie and I had to readjust my expectations. Read more...

Lamar reviews - Paul Blart Mall Cop 2

I’m seriously thinking about turning in my movie critic’s license and becoming a food critic. This movie experience has turned my life upside down. I don’t know what’s real anymore. In 2009 I saw the original Paul Blart Mall Cop. It was not funny. It was painful to watch. I’m not a huge Kevin James fan but I like his standup, he had a great run on King of Queens, and I’ve like him in a few movies. When I reviewed the original Mall Cop I said it was a total waste of time and it would open on Friday and be released on DVD by the following Tuesday afternoon straight to the $5 bin in the produce section of grocery stores. It made $40 million the first week, $96 million the first month, and so far it’s grossed over $250 million. It cost $26 million. I still don’t get it. So of course Todd sends me to see the sequel with can only consist of the jokes that didn’t make the cut for the first one. Read more...

Lamar Reviews- Get Hard

Let me issue a warning. If you search the internet for information on this movie don’t just enter the title. You need to search for Get Hard the movie Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. If you just search the two word title you will get many, many, things. Lots of videos, quite a selection of different devices, and you’ll receive lots of emails concerning various prescriptions from Canadian pharmaceutical companies. Read more...

Lamar reviews - Insurgent

The chemistry between Tris and Four is good but it’s not great for me. I like both characters and they are great in their roles but them together as a couple, I hope gets better in the next 2 movies. Read more...

Lamar reviews - Run All Night

I have been referring to this movie as Unknown Non-Stop Taken 6 because except for being on an airplane without a child in jeopardy Liam Neeson has played basically the same character in his last few movies. But if he’s guilty of anything it’s giving people what they want, which seems to be him running around shooting, stabbing, and beating bad guys to death. And trust me, nobody loves that kind of thing more than me. But doing weak, for the money, sequels to the really good original Taken has left a bad taste in my mouth for Liam Neeson as an action star. Surprisingly Run All Night may be the movie mouthwash to make me forget the last two. Now this is not a great movie but compared to the last 2 Taken attempts it is a huge improvement. One of the reasons is Neeson doesn’t have to carry the entire movie by himself. He shares the work with Ed Harris and Vincent D’Onofrio. Both of these guys can carry a scene. Read more...
