Movie Review: Grudge Match

Grudge Match

Happy Holiday’s everybody! I recently attended an advanced screening of Grudge Match, and even though I was leery at first, I decided to give it a shot since it was free. And despite my misgivings coming into it, I was actually pleasantly surprised.

I’m sure by now you’ve seen the trailer, pitting Rocky against Raging Bull. If not, you can watch it here:

Grudge Match gives us the fight we’ve always wanted to see, even if it’s about 30 years too late, with both of these old men way out of their acting primes. However the movie was extremely entertaining and heartfelt.

Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro play Henry ‘Razor’ Sharp and Billy ‘The Kid’ McDonnen, two boxers whose rivalry fueled the boxing scene much like Ali and Frazier. These two men hated each other for reasons that I won’t give away, but when their third fight is unexpectedly cancelled, these men never have a chance to settle the score and see who is the better boxer.

They both go on their ways throughout life. One boxer loses much of his money, while the other opens up a car dealership and restaurant; both retired in Pittsburgh, PA. When their old promoter’s son Dante Slate Jr. (Kevin Hart) asks them to come out of retirement for one last deciding match, all hell breaks loose, as these two rivals are forced to promote their fight together.

Grudge Match isn’t a movie that’s going to blow you away, but it’s entertaining enough, with lots of funny banter between Sly and Bobby Deniro, and even more hilarious banter between Kevin Hart and Alan Arkin.

I think Grudge Match is the perfect movie for the holidays. and I give the movie a 3.5 out of 5.

The movie comes out on Christmas, so go see it after you’re done opening your presents! 🙂

Watch The Terrifying Final ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Trailer

Published

on

Universal Pictures just released the final trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World, which is set to stampede into theaters on June 22nd, 2017.

It’s been 4 years since Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment, and Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. But when the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire must rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.

But that’s not all. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition discovers that a shadowy arms company has created a genetically-engineered dinosaur called the Indoraptor, described as “the most dangerous creature that ever walked the earth,” that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times!

Naturally, it’s up to Owen and Claire to save the world, because as Dr. Malcolm wisely reflects, “those creatures were here before us and if we’re not careful they’re going to be here after us.”

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for this!

Watch The Official Trailer For ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

Published

on

Disney has released the official trailer for their upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, giving us fans a peek at the next standalone installment of the Star Wars franchise. Like many of you, I was a little hesitant about a Han Solo origin story.

But after watching this trailer, I’m all in!

The trailer for Solo opens with young Han being recruited for a job. He tells Tobias Beckett that he’s a driver and that he’s waited a long time for a shot like this. Becket warns him that once he joins, he’s part of this life forever. And so it begins.

Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars sagas most unlikely heroes.

We wish we could just make the jump to May 25th already when Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters, but this trailer will have to tide us over until then.
