Dog’s Movie House: Two Excellent Offerings In “Get Out” And “Logan!”

 

Howdy Folks!  It’s The Kendog!

 

Bradley Whitford And Catherine Keener In “Get Out”

 

 

 

The blahs of winter are now behind us and we finally have some really good movies to see at the local multiplex.  First, one of the better horror films in recent memory from first-time director Jordan Peele and then later we’ve got Hugh Jackman’s final turn as the clawed mutant Wolverine.  Both films are sure to please fans of both genres.

The Kenblog: “What’s The Big Deal With The Oscars!”

Howdy folks!  It’s The Kendog With An Oscars Edition Of The Kenblog!

 

 

So the 2017 Academy Awards are now history and as I take a look at the trades, tweets, and on-line tirades everyone still seems to be up in arms about the mistake made last night in revealing the wrong best picture winner.  That they eventually got it right doesn’t seem to matter: the folks behind the Oscars are being crucified for making the mistake in the first place.  My question: what’s the big deal?

Dog’s Movie House: “John Wick: Chapter 2” A Thrilling Roller Coaster Ride!

 

Howdy Folks!  It’s The Kendog!

 

 

Keanu Reeves returns as John Wick in “John Wick: Chapter 2.

“John Wick” has joined the ranks of movies such as “Predator” and “Aliens” and even “Die Hard” as one of the greatest action movies of all time.  It’s endlessly re-watchable, features a committed performance by Keanu Reeves in the lead role, and has an uncommonly strong emotional hook that gives the film more depth than it has any right too.  As a low-budget hit, a sequel seemed inevitable, but unlike the sequels to the above mentioned films, “John Wick: Chapter 2” is every bit the equal of its predecessor, providing more thrills without sacrificing the lean storytelling that marked the original film.

The Kenblog: “Remembering Bill Paxton!”

Dog’s Movie House: See “La La Land,” Skip “Resident Evil”

 

Howdy folks!  It’s The Kendog!

 

Emma Stone And Ryan Gosling In “La La Land”

 

 

It’s definitely a tale of two movies this week.  I finally caught Oscar favorite “La La Land,” and I have to say it’s a darn sight better than any of the new releases this last week.  Is it worth the fourteen Oscar noms?  Well that’s a matter of opinion and I’ll let you know mine in a minute or two.   I can say “La La Land” is a vast improvement over the final (hopefully) installment of the long running “Resident Evil” franchise.  If this were a boxing match between two directors, Damien Chazelle (“Whiplash,” “La La Land”) would beat Paul W.S. Anderson (“Mortal Kombat,” “Resident Evil”) down like a government mule within a single round.
