Film Reviews

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.

Film Review – “Maestro”

On a positive note, the performances are excellent.  Cooper channels Bernstein down to his voice patterns.  Mulligan carries most of the emotional baggage of the film and never delivers a false note. 

Film Review: “American Fiction”

“American Fiction” tells us that everyone, while living the same experiences, enjoying the same triumphs and enduring the same tragedies, all have a unique story to tell

Film Review: “Laced”

“Laced” has enough creativity to entertain you for 90 minutes and has the potential to chill you to the bone

Film Review: “Migration”

Like other ILLUMINATION films, these are characters you want to spend time with and, most importantly, want to succeed.

Film Review: “DICKS: The Musical”

A fun, hilarious comedy, “Dicks: The Musical” is best described as “a fun and raucous Parent Trap.”  And that’s a good thing. 

Film Review: “The Sacrifice Game”

“The Sacrifice Game” squeezes out of every drop of blood from her cast and every ounce of Christmas cheer from the ending exclamation point.

Film Review: Loop Track

If “Loop Track” is a sign of Thomas Sainsbury’s prowess for horror, I can’t wait to see what he has in store next

Film Review: “Wish”

 After a series of misfires that seriously threatened the House of Mouse, I am proud to report that, with “Wish,” Disney is back!

Film Review: “The Marvels”

Even with wall-to-wall action, “The Marvels” feels almost formulaic in its story. 

Film Review: “As We Know It”

The ineffective script, general purpose of the plot and character conversations in “As We Know It” are apparent early-on

Film Review: Courtney Gets Possessed

“Courtney Gets Possessed” has some pretty solid comedic bits, like an unusually hot pizza guy, mom stopping by to give a gift lube, and the way the film wraps up like some kind of offbeat Satanic sitcom

Film Review: “Killers of the Flower Moon”

A sprawling epic, “Killers of the Flower Moon” boasts award winning performances by the three leads, who breathe life into characters that would come off as two dimensional in the hands of lesser actors.

Film Review: “The Burial”

Buoyed by strong performances by Foxx and Jones (both former Oscar winners), the film is full of strong performances. 

Film Review: “The Hive”

Despite an interesting set-up, “The Hive” does nothing outside of its first 10-15 minutes of exposition. It seems perfectly content with cyclical dull scenes of characters repeating dialogue and information

Film Review: “Night of the Hunted”

“Night of the Hunted” is a violent, tense, entertaining flick that will twist your stomach up in knots

Film Review: “Herd”

There’s a lot of skill, craft and effort in “Herd,” but all of that was bogged down by an uninspired script that made the 97-minute runtime feel like a zombie crawl.
