Bob Garver: “Sausage Party” movie review

By Bob Garver If nothing else, there aren’t a lot of movies like “Sausage Party.” I mean this both in terms of subject matter (grocery items decide they don’t want to be eaten) and tone. It’s basically an R-rated kids’ movie. So much of it is cute and chipper and it’s presented in a silly-looking […]

Bob Garver: “Suicide Squad” movie review

By Bob Garver Simply put, “Suicide Squad” was my most anticipated movie of 2016. I’m a big fan of Batman, but I’m a bigger fan of his rogues gallery – his collection of colorful recurring villains. “Suicide Squad” brings us not one, not two, but three of those characters. We’ve got The Joker, one of […]

Bob Garver: “Jason Bourne” movie review

Bob Garver “Jason Bourne” gets off on the wrong foot by having a lame title. I guess the idea was to recover from the flop that was “The Bourne Legacy” by promising viewers that Jason Bourne would actually be involved in this one. But what it’s unofficially promising to do is break from the hot […]

Bob Garver: “Ghostbusters” movie review

By Bob Garver The hoopla surrounding the remake of “Ghostbusters” will be remembered more than the movie itself. Many fans were opposed to the idea of touching the 1984 comedy classic.
