Movie Review: BAD BOYS FOR LIFE Starring Will Smith, Martin Lawrence

Posted: January 17, 2020 at 8:25 am   /   Movie Reviews

If you’ve ever seen the movie Major League II, there’s a scene towards the beginning of the film where two of the main characters are watching the trailer for the action movie one of them is starring in. As the action gets increasingly outlandish and impossible, the star of the film can’t contain his excitement, […]

Movie Review: 1917 Starring Dean-Charles Chapman, George MacKay, Daniel Mays

Posted: January 10, 2020 at 7:44 am   /   Movie Reviews

When I had the chance to screen They Shall Not Grow Old last year, I jumped at the chance. World War I is a fascinating study that’s often overlooked by many (myself included) for the war that came two decades later. But Grow Old was a terrific look into the actual trenches of the war, […]

Movie Review: STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

Posted: December 19, 2019 at 3:47 pm   /   Movie Reviews

I can still remember my first exposure to Star Wars. I was pretty young, probably eight or nine, looking for a movie to watch. Back then, we had to rely on the old VCR and whatever movies had either been purchased or recorded off broadcast TV. I feel old just typing that. Anyway, one of […]

Movie Review: ‘Knives Out’ Starring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis

Sometimes, you think you have a movie figured out from the beginning. Sometimes, the movie tells you what happens halfway through. And sometimes, even when it tells you, it still pulls the rug out from underneath your feet. With murder mysteries, usually it ends up being a combination of all three. They’re fun for a […]

Movie Review: ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,’ Starring; Tom Hanks

Posted: November 22, 2019 at 10:36 am   /   Local

Growing up, I didn’t have cable. While other kids got to watch Nickelodeon and Disney Channel, I made do with broadcast channels. Sure, I got my fill of Saturday morning cartoons: Animaniacs, X-Men, and the like. But during the week, especially when I was very young, I ended up watching a lot of PBS. I […]

Movie Review: ‘21 Bridges,’ Starring; Chadwick Boseman

Posted: November 22, 2019 at 10:31 am   /   Local

I usually try to open my movie reviews with a fun intro or clever anecdote, but I’m coming up with a complete blank for 21 Bridges. I was pretty excited for this movie. Chadwick Boseman, the Russo brothers producing, and the trailer for the movie made it seem like it’d be a fantastic manhunt thriller. […]

Movie Review: MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL Starring Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Michelle Pfeiffer

Posted: October 18, 2019 at 8:28 am   /   Movie Reviews

I think it’s safe to say that as soon as they saw how much money the original Maleficent raked in, Disney was ready to rubberstamp a sequel. Pulling in over $750 million in 2014, it was a smash hit and audiences seemed to enjoy the more sympathetic take on the typically-reviled antagonist of Sleeping Beauty.  […]

Movie Review: ‘Angel Has Fallen’ Starring Gerard Butler, Piper Perabo, Morgan Freeman

Remember when you were a kid and you’d play out various fantasy scenarios of you saving the world? Nevermind the various plot holes or implausible events that occurred, you were a hero, dammit, and nothing could stop you from getting that ticker-tape parade. If you can relate to that paragraph and cringe at the very […]

Play “Gloria” – The St. Louis Blues Are the 2019 Stanley Cup Champions

Posted: June 13, 2019 at 2:36 pm   /   Sports, St. Louis Blues

That’s not how you’re supposed to win. You don’t win with an “interim” head coach after firing your head coach 19 games into the season. Definitely not with an interim coach who, before this, was mostly known as a goon who amassed 3,149 penalty minutes in 1,054 games. You don’t win with a team that […]
