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

Posted: November 27, 2019 at 10:13 am   /   Movie Reviews

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: ‘Queen & Slim’ Starring Daniel Kaluuya​, Jodie Turner-Smith​

Posted: November 27, 2019 at 10:06 am   /   Movie Reviews

At a very basic level, Queen & Slim could best be described as a bad tinder date turned into a nightmare. Adding themes of racial tension and injustice, however, the film becomes a more intimate and horrifying commentary on what it’s like to be black in America today.  The film begins with stars Daniel Kaluuya […]

Movie Review: ‘Midway,’ Starring Mandy Moore, Woody Harrelson

Posted: November 8, 2019 at 8:29 am   /   Movie Reviews

The brave men and women who fought in the battle of Midway, deserved so much better than this run-of-the-mill, cookie-cutter, just plain boring Roland Emmerich film. ‘Midway’ is Emmerich’s new war opus, which while retelling the story of World War II’s most decisive battle, seems to take its facts and information straight from a Wikipedia […]

Movie Review: ‘Motherless Brooklyn’ Starring Edward Norton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alec Baldwin

Posted: November 1, 2019 at 9:17 am   /   Movie Reviews

People say they love a good detective story. The tale of the fedora-clad loner chasing after the unknown perpetrator of the supposed crime of the century in the seedy underbelly of a well-known urban setting. It is probably set in the ‘40s or ‘50s, too. The thing is, anybody can try their hand at the […]

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.  […]
