Ron Jacobsohn Reviews Allied
This is the much anticipated big screen coupling between Brad Pitt and Academy Award Winner, Marion Cotillard, which doesn’t disappoint visually but falls flat when it comes to chemistry. Director Robert Zemeckis is a great visual master and “Allied” is no exception. Creating the World War II era Morocco and England was carefully crafted and looks stunningly believable, but what does not come across is sense... Read more

Ron Jacobsohn Reviews Rules Don’t Apply
Following his 15 years absence from the big screen, actor-director-writer, Warren Beatty, is back at age 79 portraying legendary eccentric business mogul, Howard Hughes.

Ron Jacobsohn Reviews Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them definitely feels from the first scene like movie that someone at the studios said about: lets burn the $180 million on the screen and do it so that everyone can see exactly how much money we burnt on this production. Even though every few seconds... Read more
Ron Jacobsohn Reviews Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange is the newest addition to the Marvel Universe to hit the big screen. As much as I wanted to follow the story, I feel the plot got a bit too complicated with introducing us to Doctor Strange, but having an exquisite British import, Benedict Cumberbatch, in the... Read more

When I took my kids to see this movie, I was hoping to get a well-deserved nap, but instead I got a movie that taught kids and adults alike, about the pursuit of happiness. Those fluffy trolls, who like to hug every thirty minutes on the clock, are just... Read more

Ron Jacobsohn Reviews Keeping Up with the Joneses
The resemblance of this flick to Mr. and Mrs. Smith is uncanny, however the coupling of Don Drapper and Wonderwoman aka Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot is not only as visually stunning as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt but funny too, as two undercover spies trying to blend-in in... Read more
Ron Jacobsohn Reviews Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
Tim Burton is back after a two year absence, directing an adaptation to the best-selling novel from 2012, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which truly feels like the perfect fit for this visionary director: telling a story that is blends between realities and spans between worlds and time....

Ron Jacobsohn Reviews The Magnificent Seven
MGM decided to remake the 1960 classic western “The Magnificent Seven” and although it did leave the storyline in the 2016 version identical to the original one, for some odd reason the filmmakers decided to make this a politically correct western having cast members from all ethnicities, kinda like...
