Film Reviews

Film Review: “Faceless After Dark”

“Faceless After Dark” is a suitable slasher, but is way better as the meta slasher it angles to be

Film Review: “Unfrosted”

“Unfrosted” can be a bit disjointed and a little too campy for its own good, but its laughable absurdity falls into the same level of genius as “The Death of Stalin” and “What We Do in the Shadows.”

Film Review: “The Beekeeper”

Overall, “The Beekeeper” is flat out boring, even though it does toss out a somewhat surprising twist towards the end. It would be more fun to throw oneself on top of a beehive than to watch “The Beekeeper.”

Film Review: “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare”

Overall, “Ministry,” while far from being historically accurate, does provide some great popcorn entertainment while also shedding some light on a mission that was only declassified after the turn of the century.

Film Review: “The Fall Guy”

Action packed and full of fun, “The Fall Guy” joins “Hooper” and “The Stunt Man” as a film that highlights the unsung heroes of the cinema. 

Panic Fest Film Review: “New Life”

There are some horror elements, but “New Life” is a slow burning look at humanity from two different lenses

Panic Fest Film Review: “Oddity”

“Oddity” is all red meat as it will make you laugh, peek between your fingers, and keep you on the edge of your seat

Panic Fest Film Review: “Cannibal Mukbang”

“Cannibal Mukbang” has a near perfect list of ingredients, but only time will tell if it’s an acquired taste or a smorgasbord for all

Panic Fest Film Review: “Infested”

If you aren’t seeing “Infested” in a crowded dark theater, not only are you doing yourself a disservice, but you risk feeling the spiders on you as you watch one of the best horrors of the year at home

Panic Fest Film Review: “Boy Kills World”

“Boy Kills World” goes balls to wall with bone crunching kung-fu fighting, deranged, yet hilarious violence, and Looney Toons absurdism

Panic Fest Film Review: “Sting”

“Sting” isn’t perfect, nor is it great, but I admire that it seems like everyone knows they’re making a modern creature feature with chuckles and a cast that will put a smile on your face

Film Review: “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire”

Overall, “Godzilla x Kong” may be good to munch popcorn along to but that’s about it.

Film Review: “Civil War”

Overall, “Civil War” is one film not to be missed.

Film Review: “Monkey Man”

But squirm away because I can guarantee you this isn’t the last time you’ll see Patel behind the camera.

Panic Fest Film Review: “Azrael”

“Azrael” is more than a silent gimmick, it’s an experience you’ll never forget

Film Review: “Spaceman”

Overall, “Spaceman” has some pretty visual effects and a couple of extraordinarily good emotional moments that will pull at the heart strings. Yet, it’s still not enough to make the film more than something average. 

Film Review: “Damsel”

Overall, “Damsel” may be one of the most boring films you could see all year. 

Film Review: “Dune: Part Two”

Overall, “Dune: Part Two” is one of the greatest achievements in film this century and surely there will be plenty of anticipation for “Dune Messiah.”

Film Review: “Arthur the King”

With the Easter holidays approaching, “Arthur the King” is truly a film for the whole family.

Film Review #2: “Killers of the Flower Moon”

“Killers of the Flower Moon” is one of the most audacious, sprawling epics director Martin Scorsese has ever created.

Film Review: “Camp Pleasant Lake”

“Camp Pleasant Lake” barely tickles the funny bone and barely offers up anything remotely new or fresh

Film Review #2: “Bob Marley: One Love”

The highlights of “One Love” include Ben-Adir’s performance and, of course, its music.

Film Review #1 – “Bob Marley: One Love”

Thanks to the hard work of Ziggy Marley, “Bob Marley: One Love” is a loving and inspiring tribute to a man who left this world much too soon.  But his music, and his message, lives on.

Film Review: “Zone of Interest”

“Zone of Interest” is actually so banal in discussing the banality of evil, it fails to deliver anything meaningful or even lasting

Film Review – “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom”

For someone who has been a fan of at least some of the DC movies, or the Zack Snyder universe, it is a bit sad to see the unfinished storylines come to an end.

Theater Review: “ROCKY”

The cast is strong, especially Mr. Starlin and Ms. Hall, who, rather then doing an impression of the original film’s actors, give the characters a sweetness and vulnerability that extends throughout the show.

The original movie featured a dream team of character actors (Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn), but the current touring cast is up for the task as well.
