Film Reviews

Film Review: “Love, Simon”

I’ve heard this film described as a “John Hughes” – type film.  Barely.  Though Hughes did spend a lot of his time writing about teenagers, their problems and how they dealt with them, his characters were a hell of a lot more believable. 

Film Review: Terrifier

“Terrifier” is an entertaining bit of gore, but ultimately it’s not rewatchable or memorable

Film Review – “The Death of Stalin”

In the Russian loop. Armando Iannucci brings his breakneck quips and futile power plays to Stalin’s final days in The Death of Stalin, a darkly hilarious take on a moment in history handled by a collection of top notch actors including Steve Buscemi and Simon Russell Beale

Film Review “A Wrinkle In Time”

Packs a solid heart and delivers beautiful and sometimes trippy visuals but feels rushed and scattered by the end.

Film Review: “Gringo”

It’s hard for me to go into detail about why I did not enjoy “Gringo” as much as I wanted, or even as I feel I should have.  It’s one of those things you can’t really put a finger on…you just know you didn’t like it.  But I’ll try.

Film Review: “A Wrinkle in Time”

It really doesn’t work until the final act, after we’ve had to suffer through a lot of confusing tone changes, half-hearted story beats and dead end CGI spectacles

Film Review – Molly’s Game

The twentieth century saw a lot of American Dreams coming true. In the twenty-first century, there are a very few people who could see that happen. The online casino business sounds like routine today, but years back a young female started on a risky mission on a big stake Poker game, exposing herself to some …

Film Review: “Annihilation”

“Annihilation” is a beautifully shot film that hobbles from the start and then whimpers in its final moments

Film Review – “Survivor’s Guide to Prison”

As we learn more and more about life behind bars, the film also revisits Lisker and Cole, and they’re own struggles.  The true definition of irony comes when, five years into his sentence, Cole kills a man in self-defense.  Because of the circumstances that put him behind bars for murder, an innocent man is NOW a murderer.  Hidden camera and surveillance footage show the brutal way of life that is a constant for those incarcerated.

Film Review “Death House”

“Death House” IS the Expendables of Horror! 90 minutes of non-stop genre fun! I found myself glued to ever scene!

Film Review – “Black Panther”

These films are meant to be taken serious and the cast more than delivers on that promise.  But these films are also meant to be fun, and with great visuals and a brilliant musical score, Black Panther more than fills the bill.

Film Review “Early Man”

I hate it when I see a trailer for a movie and shriek and say “Oh boy, that’s gonna suck”. In this case, the trailer is 100% right.

Film Review: Victor Crowley

Very rarely does a sequel, much less the fourth of a franchise, live-up-to and exceed the expectations set by previous films, but “Victor Crowley” does

Film Review: “Ruin Me”

“Ruin Me” is a midnight movie romp, which pays off for viewers who love watching characters trapped in sadistic head games

Film Review – “Hostiles”

Scott Cooper has always been an entertaining filmmaker. Whether it’s the day to day life of singer Bad Blake in “Crazy Heart” or the bond of the Baze brothers in “Out of the Furnace,” he has a unique way of telling a story that makes the viewer feel they are part of the story.

Film Review: “12 Strong”

“12 Strong” does a passable job telling a story about unsung heroes, but there’s the lingering feeling that the soldiers portrayed in the film deserved a much better retelling of their struggles
