Shazam! has me excited about DC movies again

Review: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Review: Generation Wealth

I watch maybe one documentary a year. Most often the only ones that grip me are explorations of extreme people. Films like Finders Keepers and Shut up Little Man are standouts, showing just how strange and repulsive human behavior can be. T...

Fantasia 2018 Review: Chained for Life

Chained for Life wastes no time introducing its main topic. A quote crawls the screen expressing that actors have to be beautiful, because being beautiful allows them to play anything. Soon, we see our beautiful actress, Mabel (Jess Weixler...

CW adding to Batman bonanza with new Batwoman show

One of my most vivid memories as a 6-year-old was watching an episode of the oft-overlooked The New Batman Adventures. Titlled “Over the Edge,” a supremely scary looking Scarecrow smacks Batgirl off a skyscraper, causing her t...

Review: Sorry to Bother You

Every time Tessa Thompson's character in Sorry to Bother You shows up, she is wearing a new pair of earrings of her own design. These serve as the perfect metaphor for the movie itself: they are big, impractical, provocative, lack...

See The Equalizer 2 early and free

The Equalizer was a bit of fun with Denzel Washington basically doing his best Liam Neeson so hopefully, the sequel won't be a drop off in quality the same way Taken 2 was. At least we're getting the same creative team back. Want to kn...

Netflix proudly displays their Package ... trailer

This actually doesn't appear to be a remake of the 1989 political thriller starring Gene Hackman (thank Zeus). This is more like Without a Paddle meets American Pie. Camping misadventure meets teen sex comedy. Will it work? It's 2 girls ca...

Review: Eighth Grade

Review: Skyscraper

I'm not sure why, but I was kind of thinking that Skyscraper would be something special. Not like, "good" special, but just some sort of low-key, fun action flick that riffed a bit on Die Hard and The Towering Infer...

Generally speaking, films involving diamonds, gangsters, and infidelity that culminate in a gunfight tend to lean towards the exciting. Normally Keanu Reeves in a movie such as this adds grit and deadpan determination, but unfortunately, th...
