Rakki Reviews Batman Vs Superman (Second Opinion)

Friend Or Foe? The second film in the new DC cinematic universe is packed with action, excitement and a whole lot of head scratching moments. Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice feels like what a child’s imagination would think up when they’re playing with action figures in their bedroom. Like playing with action figures, the motivation for each character’s actions are often unexplained, all of them in the same vicinity seems a little too convenient, but it doesn’t seem to matter...More

Rakki Reviews 10 Cloverfield Lane

“I Focus On Being Prepared.” 10 Cloverfield Lane easily could have been a typical doomsday, end-of-the-world, we’re under attack-type of lazy story telling, and it probably would have made money just from simply having JJ Abram’s name attached to it. I’m pleased to say that this is not the case. This is one of the smartest and most thrilling films I have seen in recent years. Its claustrophobic setting, combined with intrigue and mystery is tons of fun. Add in a...More

Rakki Reviews The Witch

Are thy a Witch? The woods are an uncomfortable place, especially in the dark. The uncertainty of what could be out there watching… waiting… Picture in your head what you would pack if you were going on a camping trip this weekend. Your bag might consist of a couple changes of clothes, some toiletries, your cellphone and some of your favorite snacks from your local convenience store. After you’re all packed you drive to your fancy cabin and enjoy some...More

Rakki Reviews Deadpool

Dead sure I don’t need to see this again. With a nickname like the “Merc’ with a Mouth” and a hard R rating, Deadpool is different type of superhero movie that had a lot going for it− up until its release into theaters. Whether its that super catchy X Gon Give It To Ya theme song we can’t get out of our heads, or Betty White giving a two thumbs up review on YouTube, Ryan Reynolds’ attempt at making both comic...More

Rakki Reviews: The Walk

Wire you doing this? Balance is a trait that is not easily obtained. We’ve all attempted walking on a roadside curb when we were kids in elementary school. Odds are it wasn’t easy for you and you probably fell flat on your face. If it was easy for you, congratulations, here’s a gold star because you’re more coordinated than I am. Philippe Petite (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a small man with towering goals (literally). His goal is to one day accomplish his...More

Rakki Reviews Black Mass

Take your shot, but make it your best. 'Cause I get up, I eat ya. Black Mass is the most grounded role Johnny Depp has had in years, so much so it made me forget it was even him on screen. He disappears into the role of James “Whitey” Bulger, with a menacing demeanor and violent tendencies that leave the audience feeling uneasy with each word he speaks. With the way he crosses his arms sternly and his intense glare, the academy...More

Rakki Reviews The Visit

Something is wrong with Nana and Pop-Pop… Have you ever been to your grandparents’ house when they attempt to stuff your face with an absurd amount of food, even though you’ve said, “no, thank you!” a hundred different ways? Eventually, you say yes so they stop asking, and besides, one more cupcake won’t hurt, right? The Visit is an example of why you should always obey your grandparents and say yes to whatever they ask you. For example, the grandchildren are...More

Rakki Reviews: Straight Outta Compton

Music has the power to change the world. In the late 1980's, Compton, California was a focal point for racism, discrimination, violence and hate between different communities. With rival gangs killing each other on the streets and cops mistreating minorities, the city and the nation needed a voice to reflect some of these citizen’s realities. ...More
