Review: ‘The Intruder’ Starring Meagan Good, Michael Ealy, Dennis Quaid

Posted: May 3, 2019 at 7:05 am   /   Movie Reviews

The Intruder is the kind of movie that I went into with little to no expectations, yet it still delivers even less. It’s this year’s Breaking In (review), in which we get a cookie-cutter home-invasion movie that serves us nothing more than cheap tricks. The plot is simple. Scott (Michael Ealy) is a young and […]

Movie Review: ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson

Posted: April 24, 2019 at 10:07 am   /   Movie Reviews

In the past eleven years, we as an audience have witnessed something truly remarkable in cinema. After a surprise blockbuster hit in 2008’s Iron Man, we’ve been absolutely spoiled by what’s become the gold standard for comic book to big screen adaptations. While some may not be held on as high of a pedestal as […]

Movie Review: Disneynature’s PENGUINS

Posted: April 17, 2019 at 9:25 am   /   Movie Reviews

Nearly every April since 2011, Disneynature has released a documentary in which we follow a certain species of animal in celebration of Earth Day. There’s been African Cats, Chimpanzee, Bears, and pandas in Born in China, but this year we’re following Steve, an adorable Adélie Penguin in Disneynature’s Penguins. Penguins is directed by Alastair Fothergill […]

Movie Review: ‘High Life’ Starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin

Posted: April 12, 2019 at 8:53 am   /   Movie Reviews

When High Life begins, there’s already an ominous feel as to what’s going to happen during its 110-minute runtime. The score is haunting. The halls of this spacecraft are barren while the only sounds being heard is a baby cooing while watching flashes of television. The film cuts to Robert Pattinson outside the spacecraft as […]

Movie Review: ‘The Best of Enemies’ Starring Taraji P. Henson, Sam Rockwell

Posted: April 5, 2019 at 8:18 am   /   Movie Reviews

The Best of Enemies is written and directed by first-timer Robin Bissell and stars Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell as two people on complete opposite ends of the spectrum. Henson plays real-life political activist, Ann Atwater, while Rockwell portrays – you guessed it – an intolerant scumbag named CP Ellis who just so happens […]

Movie Review: Tim Burton’s DUMBO Never Truly Takes Flight

Posted: March 29, 2019 at 7:01 am   /   Movie Reviews

The Disney live-action remake initiative has been an interesting project that’s sparked many debates amongst me and my peers.  While many have made somewhat fair arguments that these remakes are nothing more than cash grabs and nothing else, I’ve argued that advancements in technology over the years at least allows for more creative direction with […]

Review: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss

Posted: March 21, 2019 at 12:20 pm   /   Movie Reviews

In 2017, Jordan Peele surprised the hell out of the world with his first feature-length film (and one of my favorites of the year), GET OUT. Two years and one Oscar win later, audiences are clamoring for his next feature titled US which is marketed as “a new nightmare from Jordan Peele.” …and what a […]

Movie Review: ‘Captain Marvel’ Starring Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn

Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers and follows her character through a cosmic journey of self-discovery as she’s trapped in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. The film acts as a prequel to most of the events in the MCU as her journey finds her on Earth in 1995 […]

Movie Review: ‘Greta’ Starring Isabelle Huppert, Chloë Grace Moretz, Maika Monroe

Posted: March 1, 2019 at 10:13 am   /   Movie Reviews

For the first time in quite a while, I went to a see movie without knowing much of anything about it – that movie being Greta. I knew it starred Chloe Grace Moretz, whom I’ve been fond of since her breakout roles in 500 Days of Summer and more notably, Kick-Ass, and that the film […]
