Film Reviews

Film Review: “Operation Fortune”

Overall, “Operation Fortune” does not disappoint and is definitely worth a couple hours of your time.

Film Review: “Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story

If you can’t make it down in person, this film is a great way to enjoy the show.  

Film Review: “Amsterdam”

You do have to pay attention, as every new twist takes you in a different direction.  That being said, head to the nearest cinema and book a ticket to “Amsterdam.”

Film Review: “Till”

A film that takes an unflinching look at one of the most horrific times in this country’s history, “Till” is a tale of two worlds, 650 miles apart.  It is a film that needs to be seen by everyone!

Film Review: “CREED III”

The main thing missing is Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky.  Rocky was the heart of the first two films, and his presence is sorely missed, both on the screen and to the audience. 

Film Review: “WEIRD: the Al Yankovic Story’

The film plays fast and loose with facts, but fans of Al wouldn’t want it any other way.

Film Review: “Champioms”

Overall, “Champions” is a soft layup rather than a slam dunk. 

Film Review: ‘Hypnotic”

Overall, “Hypnotic” may hypnotize you into going to sleep.

Film Review: “Plane”

Overall, “Plane” is one ride you should jump out of before it ever leaves the ground. 

Film Review: “Knock at the Cabin”

Overall, “Knock at the Cabin” is terrific entertainment and should be on your short list of things to watch.

Film Review: “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery”

Overall, “Glass Onion” is a one-layer onion that will make you cry over how paper thin it is.

Film Review: “Renfield”

Overall, “Renfield” has some good moments and it’s great to see Cage in a major motion picture again, but it’s only worth your time if you have nothing else to do.

Film Review: “A Man Called Otto”

Overall, “A Man Called Otto,” available on streaming services, is a wonderful little drama, but just make sure you have a tissue box handy.

Film Review: “Avatar: The Way pf Water”

Overall, “Avatar: The Way of Water” is a terrific popcorn flick, that is if you have an entire weekend free to watch it.

Film Review: “The Pope’s Exorcist”

Overall, say a prayer to give you the strength to not watch this film.

Film Review: “65”

Overall, “65” is perhaps a good film to fall asleep to on a rainy, Sunday afternoon where there is absolutely nothing else to do and football isn’t on.

Film Review: “She Said”

Not only should have “She Said” been nominated for best picture, among many others, but it should have also given nods to Kazan and Mulligan who are nothing short of spectacular with their inspiring performances.

Film Review: “5-25-77”

While I did have some quibbles with the film, it is definitely one that should be seen, not only for movie lovers who will find a kindred soul in young Pat Johnson but as a validation of Patrick Read Johnson’s perseverance.

Film Review: “The Little Mermaid” (2023)

“The Little Mermaid” is one of the most uninspiring flicks in recent memory and is emblematic of Hollywood’s problem with coming up with any new or inspiring content.

Film Review: “The Banshees of Inisherin”

Great performances and beautiful shots of Irish countryside aside, “Banshees” is an overhyped film that probably require a pint to help get through it.

Film Review: “SISU”

Overall, if you want to watch an almost equally violent World War II flick with a much better story and acting, then find “Inglourious Basterds” on your streaming service and watch it instead.

Panic Fest Film Review: “Birth/Rebirth”

“Birth/Rebirth” is a monster that you’ll be thinking about long after the credits and lights go up

Film Review: “Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3”

To be blunt, “Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3” is not only by far the most brilliant film in the “Guardians” trilogy, but it is also one of the best films to be released within the Marvel franchise.

Film Review: “The Whale”

Overall, “The Whale” is watchable because of Fraser’s one-for-the-ages performance.

Panic Fest Film Review: “Black Mold”

Overall, “Black Mold” is an enjoyable journey into the psyche of regret, loss and broken relationships
