Movie Review: SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS Starring Simu Liu, Tony Leung, Awkwafina

I grew up on the Jackie Chan movies of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Drunken Master, Crime Story, Police Story, Rumble in the Bronx…every week when my family would go to rent new movies, I’d always grab at least one of his movies and spend a couple of hours admiring the action and laughing at his […]

Movie Review: THE SUICIDE SQUAD Starring Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, Daniela Melchior

I’ve got a confession to make: I’ve been pretty burned out on comic book/superhero media. Sure, back when the Marvel Cinematic Universe hit its prime, I was fully on board. I loved the action and the visuals and the humor. I loved the Dark Knight trilogy, as Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite filmmakers. […]

Listen, I get why they make a lot of sequels; it’$ not tough to deduce the rea$on. But i think we all can agree that some movies just don’t necessarily warrant a sequel. Either the plot was sufficient to end on a high note or the writers used up their best material in the first, […]

I’ll admit, I was a huge Tom Clancy fan growing up. Granted, his novels weren’t always full of epic character development, but damn if he didn’t know how to write an exciting techno-thriller. When Rainbow Six came out as a PC game, I checked the novel out from the library and loved it. I went […]

Movie Review: GODZILLA VS. KONG Starring Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall

Man, I’ve missed going to movies. I mean, sure, I still watched my fair share of movies at home during isolation, but to me there’s nothing like being there in a theater, having taken out a mortgage to get concessions, and sitting down surrounded by speakers so loud at times you question whether you still […]

Haven’t done one of these reviews in a while. We live in unprecedented times and I hope the three of you that previously read my reviews are well. If you’ve heard the name Eddie Huang before, there’s a good chance it’s from the popular ABC sitcom, “Fresh Off the Boat.” And if you haven’t seen […]

“Until youRemember, suprisingly, that common men have done good deeds.” -Robert Penn Warren If we want to be optimistic, the history of America is laden with ordinary men and women stepping up when it was needed, to deliver in the clutch when others couldn’t. Be it the farmers who fought for independence in the American […]

Movie Review: BLOW THE MAN DOWN Starring David Coffin, David Pridemore, Adam Wolf Mayerson

As one of my favorite television shows likes to point out: bad gas travels fast in a small town. And so it is in Easter Cove, the setting for Blow the Man Down. It’s a tiny fishing community in New England that, if you’re old enough to remember, may remind you a bit of the […]

Movie Review: THE CALL OF THE WILD Starring Harrison Ford, Karen Gillan, Cara Gee

I’m not sure what it is, but there’s something inherently romantic with the Yukon wilderness. It’s hard to nail down exactly what it is: perhaps it’s the idea of exploring the pristine, undisturbed world of the Yukon. Or perhaps the romanticized notion of striking it incredibly rich on your own. When I was growing up, […]

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, […]
