Monika Keri

Best known as the international woman of mystery and the Chandler Bing among her friends. Monika grew up in a movie loving family in Europe, which meant she was not subjected to much censorship.  Her love of all things horror and action began very early on as a result.  Despite it all, she is not as big of an oddball as everyone (including family) originally predicted.   Thinks the term "chick flick" should be banned worldwide.

Exodus is director Ridley Scott’s story of Moses (Christian Bale) and his figurative Egyptian brother, Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton). This version of Moses is sceptical of religion and God. He also doesn’t rea...

The Giver Review

Before Hunger Games and the Divergent novels, there was a book published in 1993 called “The Giver” by Lois Lowry. During the twenty years, it has received a lot of complaints and criticism, to the point where people have tried to have it removed from school reading lists and libraries.  Perhaps that’s the reason it took so long for Hollywood to make a film adaptation. “The Giver” takes place in a...

A Million Ways to Die in the West Review

With the success of Family Guy and 2012’s Ted, it was inevitable that Hollywood would let Seth McFarlane not only create but to anchor another movie.  The result is “A Million Ways to Die in the West”. As one might imagine, western is not exactly the most popular genre these days, let alone a comedic one with bits of gore. So this latest offering by Universal Pictures is taking a gambl...

Bad Neighbours Review

If you read the synopsis of Bad Neighbours, you might think it’s an absurd idea to even attempt to turn it into a film, let alone a good one.  But that is exactly what writers Brendan O’Brien, Andrew J Cohen, and director Nicolas Stoller, have tried. New parents to baby Stella, Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) try to adjust to parenthood while still dreaming and attempting to have wild nigh...
