But after learning that “Creed II” would be directed Steven Caple Jr., I had my doubts for the coming sequel. Thankfully, this latest entry into the long line of Rocky movies proves ...

On the surface, it’s easy to dismiss director Julius Avery’s “Overlord” as an over the top and uninspired action flick. And while, yes, the movie brings very few fresh ideas to the table, “Overlord” shines in its attention grabbing execution of those ideas that keeps viewers thrilled from it...

Sony Picture’s “Venom” is a confusing entry into this decade’s long list of superhero movies. It aims to thrill, and mostly succeeds despite its hiccups. Out of the gate, this film has several forces working against it, the largest of which is purely in its independence from Marvel Studio...

“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” is exactly what you would expect: cheesy dance numbers, catchy Abba songs and predictable romance sequences.
