The Canadian hard rock group Sumo Cyco first burst onto the scene in 2011 with their debut release “Lost in Cyco City”. A short time later the band released their second full length “Opus Mar” and have been out on the road in support of that ever since.
Martin Freeman (Black Panther, Ghost Stories) speaks about Netflix’s new zombie film, Cargo including some of his own thoughts on the supernatural: ” Once you hear something that goes bump or bang and you start making up your own narrative for it. And I’ve been rooted to the spot a few times on my stairs thinking ‘is that a ghost or is it a burglar?’ And fortunately it was neither.”
The Damned, easily the greatest surviving British punk band, bar none – are back with their first new album in a decade titled “Evil Spirits”.

Writing/Producer of “Stargate”, “Independence Day” and “Godzilla (1998)”. Director of “Geostorm”
The script is solid, with some nice set-ups inter-spliced with some emotional family moments between Curtis’ Laurie Strode and her estranged daughter and granddaughter. But you go to these films to see the boogeyman get his comeuppance. So, what are you waiting for?
Despite some heavy-handed technical choices, Beautiful Boy succeeds on the authenticity of Carell and Chalamet’s performances.
“Blaze” is a tragic story, yet if you subtract Dickey from the equation it feels stuck in neutral while cameos by a pair of stars, one a recent Oscar winner, feel contrived and over the top. Overall, it’s a story that could have used a lot tightening up and more cohesivity. Otherwise, Hawke’s effort falls short of his other tragic-musician tale in the form of 2015’s fantastic “Born to Be Blue.”
A familiar story with enough new twists and turns to keep it fresh, “A Star Is Born” is a triumph.
Very effective horror film with some great scares, gory kills and solid acting
There are chuckles to be had, but not enough, mainly due to the fact that “Night School” is stretched thin by its runtime and lack of comedic imagination
Cornish delivers a performance that deftly captures a mother’s desperation and Eccleston shines as a father who makes a ghastly decision. Beyond that, the acting is mediocre at best and downright clumsy at worst. It often feels like an overly long, bad stage play, with uninspiring camera work in the beginning despite Asante’s good intentions.
However, in the end, you end up with an amazing story of an amazing person. At age 80, Jane Fonda is still going strong. Here’s to act number six!
A beautiful and unique entry into the western genre that goes in unexpected directions and features a standout performance from John C Reilly.
The calendar says September, but “The House with a Clock in its Walls” brings Halloween early for those with a spooky bone in their body
The ending comes across as a little too far-fetched but still pretty well thought out. But be warned, make sure you bring your Kleenex with you, because “Life Itself” makes “Manchester by the Sea” look like the second coming of “Airplane!”
Beautifully done and packs the magic that was brought from the stage performance.
Though it slows down when it should be ramping up, Lizzie is a tense, simmering drama lead by the bond between Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart. A novel take on Lizzie Borden’s infamous case.
I had a real fun time while watching “The Predator,” but as I think about it in hindsight, I’m finding it troublingly easy to nitpick it to death
A carefully crafted but glacially slow paced period drama where the “big” bloody moments are few and far between. The talented cast languishes in beautiful atmosphere and effective sound design that amounts to a pile of supernatural McGuffins.
Turtletaub has crafted an evenly-paced work of cinema with subdued colors throughout. The exceptions are often the puzzles themselves when color is emphasized. He also draws out an excellent performance from Macdonald, which could be the best she has delivered.
