Home Again

Life for a single mom in Los Angeles takes an unexpected turn when she allows three young guys to move in with her.

Ever been to a movie that not only you were embarrassed to be seen watching but actually embarrassed for everyone in it?
“Home Again” is that movie.

Everything in this film is formulaic and cliché, almost as if the producers were reading a step-by-step manual on how to write a romantic comedy. The film simply has no soul, no comic pacing and no connection with its audience.
“Hone Again” is a flat and uninspired piece of drivel not worthy of your attention.

It gets a D and is rated PG-13.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsmen journey discover an allied spy organization in the US. 

These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is an entertaining film replete with wonderfully filmed action sequences, cool spy devices, plot twists and even a few surprising plot twists.

The film begins with a white knuckle roller coaster ride of a car chase but soon the energy begins to drizzle out as the film meanders through character introductions and plot setups.

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” needed a decisive plot allowing better interaction between the characters. The film just spends too much time on trying to recreate a villain as evil and maniacal as Samuel L. Jackson’s “Valentine,” from the first film.

The result is Julianne Moore’s evil “Poppy,” is about as sinister as a criminal from the old “Batman” TV show with more camp than menace.

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” ends up a nice romp, but falls short of the original.

It gets a C and is rated R.
