Review: Bad Boys for Life

There is one thing that becomes abundantly clear when watching Bad Boys for Life and that is the simple fact that Michael Bay is one of the best action directors working when he cares about what he's making (when he doesn't it's anothe...

Review: The Mercenary

Action movies are cool, because people get beat up. Sometimes they get stabbed. Other times they get shot a bunch. Every once in a while they blow up, and it's fun to watch. People break a lot of furniture, which is nice, because sometimes ...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 8 - The Redemption

When looking at the individual episodes of a television show, especially with a property so carefully-managed like Star Wars, it's hard to find any sort of distinct authorship in the filmmaking of any of them. So imagine my surprise when I ...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 7 - The Reckoning

After episodes of world-building, character-building, and who-knows-what-else, The Mandalorian season one finally rounds back to the inciting incident for the show. I've been suspicious of this show gathering all of these prominent guest st...

Review: 6 Underground

Before 6 Underground released, Netflix dropped an with star Ryan Reynolds proclaiming it to be the most Michael Bay movie ever made. That was a bit hard to believe as Michael Bay hasn't been Michael Bay for years now. The director has eithe...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 6 - The Prisoner

One of the clear strengths of The Mandalorian, especially in the earlier episodes, is that the eponymous character is not perfect—far from it. He trips, falls down, gets shot, gets covered in mud, and so on. We love an underdog. But i...

Review: Jumanji: The Next Level

When the first images for the first Jumanji film (well, the first one in this series, not the Robin Williams one) landed people were distraught. The picture didn't look much like anything good and was replete with nothing but cliches. Turns...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 5 - The Gunslinger

Generally, I abhor the term "filler" when it comes to television. Even when an episode doesn't make too many strides in long-term plot development, I usually feel like I get something out of the experience—perhaps it fleshes out a cha...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 4 - Sanctuary

If anyone watching The Mandalorian had somehow missed that this show was a Western, here is an episode that is pretty blatant with all of the associated tropes. In what was basically The Magnificent Seven in space, Mando has become the "Man...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 3 - The Sin

It has been hard to see most of the Star Wars stuff in the Disney era to be nothing more than homages to the original trilogy. With The Mandalorian, I feel as if fans are getting more of a remix across all Star Wars eras in a way we've neve...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 2 - The Child

So this is the kind of show The Mandalorian will be, eh? After an intriguing series premiere, the second episode of this Star Wars Disney+ original is more of a small step in terms of plot, one that doesn't move the story significantly forw...

Recap: The Mandalorian (Season 1, Episode 1)

Star Wars was never meant to be a giant pop culture phenomenon, nor was it envisioned as a prime example of the capitalist Hollywood nightmare we now live in. Yet despite the flaws and missteps of this gargantuan franchise, I've always beli...

Review: Primal

Nicolas Cage is the gift that keeps on giving. After throwing himself into debt with some larger than life purchases, including buying a freaking castle, the man has been accepting any role tossed at him left and right in order to make all ...

Review: Terminator: Dark Fate

In some strange way, the Terminator franchise mirrors how its titular robots are described: unstoppable. Despite every sequel past Terminator 2: Judgment Day being bad, the series just won't stop coming back. Writers have attempted to do ju...

Booze and gun violence always mix in trailer for Bloody Marie

There are all sorts of ways to overcome an alcohol dependency--self-help books, therapy, Alcoholics Anonymous. One method covered much too rarely, however, is vigilante violence. Sometimes all you have to do is shoot a gangster with a flar...

Disney's Jungle Cruise looks like a decent popcorn flick

Disney has just unveiled a new trailer for Jungle Cruise, a film adaptation of the "popular" ride from Walt Disney World. Combining elements from the attraction with a star-studded cast, I'm actually quite surprised at the result. This doe...

Review: Gemini Man

It may be time to put the phrase "visionary mind" in moratorium from film trailers. The latest Will Smith vehicle is Gemini Man, and its marketing suggest that it's one of those films that just could not be made without recent advancements ...

Review: Lucky Day

Following the emergence of Quentin Tarantino in the early '90s, audiences the world-round were at least tantalized by the fan-to-filmmaker's cocktail of pop culturally-savvy criminals and explosive violence. The Tarantino brand would evolve...
