Movie Review: ‘Scream,’ starring Neve Campbell, Melissa Barrera

Posted: January 13, 2022 at 9:47 am   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

Many horror-movie fans, including myself, consider Wes Craven to be one of the greatest horror directors of all-time and rightfully so. With a catalog consisting of Last House on the Left, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Hills Have Eyes and Scream are just a few of his masterpieces. After Craven passed away, I figured the […]

Review: THE 355 Starring Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Penélope Cruz

Posted: January 7, 2022 at 9:48 am   /   Movie Reviews

Writer-director Simon Kinberg follows up his feature directorial debut (X-Men: Dark Phoenix) with a star-studded, yet sloppily-executed spy/thriller that never quite delivers on its potential. CIA agents “Mace” Brown (Jessica Chastain) and Nick Fowler (Sebastian Stan) are working to track down a weapon that can control any type of technology – a dangerous McGuffin in […]

[Review] SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch

(Note: As always, I will do my best to keep my review as spoiler-free as possible. Any part of the plot I mention will have been shown in the trailers. If you don’t watch trailers to avoid any possible spoilers, you have been warned.) Do you ever watch a movie where a character makes decisions […]

Movie Review: GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE Starring Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Paul Rudd

Posted: November 19, 2021 at 8:41 am   /   Movie Reviews

When I was a kid, my dad used to travel to Indiana for work a few times a year. Every trip, he’d take a few VHS tapes with him and record episodes of “The Real Ghostbusters” and bring them home for me to watch (I think they were on cable and we didn’t have cable […]

Movie Review: Marvel’s ETERNALS Starring Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani

Posted: November 5, 2021 at 7:23 am   /   Movie Reviews

The latest from Marvel Studios introduces ten new lead characters, following their stories over 7,000 years, features multiple cosmic entities, and answers questions fans have had for years. Luckily, the film is in good hands with director Chloé Zhao. How can a big-budget superhero film go bigger AND smaller at the same time? It’s no […]

Movie Review: LAST NIGHT IN SOHO Starring Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith

Posted: October 29, 2021 at 7:23 am   /   Movie Reviews

Edgar Wright’s latest is an ambitious, stylistic horror-thriller that doesn’t always hit the mark – but manages to suck you in through its unique story and stellar performances. Ellie (Thomasin McKenzie) packs her bags and heads to London, where she will attend school to pursue her dreams of becoming a fashion designer. Overwhelmed by life […]

Movie Review: DUNE Starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac

Posted: October 22, 2021 at 12:19 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Based on Frank Herbert’s celebrated 1965 Sci-Fi novel, Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Dune delivers on every level. Enormous in scope, the likes of which haven’t been seen since Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films, the film is beautifully crafted and completely enthralling – transporting audiences to far-off worlds in the distant future. Villeneuve (Blade […]

Movie Review: MASS Starring Martha Plimpton, Jason Isaacs, Reed Birney, Ann Dowd

Posted: October 15, 2021 at 9:22 am   /   Movie Reviews

Confronting the uncomfortable, four actors deliver tour de force performances in this emotionally charged chamber piece. Dealing with the loss of a child is unfathomable for those fortunate enough to never experience such tragedy. For horrific events like the far-too-common school shootings in the US, an infinite amount of questions would run through one’s head. […]

Movie Review: NO TIME TO DIE Starring Daniel Craig, Léa Seydoux, Rami Malek

Posted: October 8, 2021 at 9:20 am   /   Movie Reviews

No Time To Die proves a fitting swan song for Daniel Craig after fifteen years as 007. After a brief taste of retirement (as if it would ever actually stick), James Bond (Craig) and Dr. Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) are thrown back into their old lives when they are attacked on holiday in Italy. And […]

Movie Review: Welcome to the Blumhouse – THE MANOR

Posted: October 8, 2021 at 8:06 am   /   Movie Reviews

It seems Amazon Prime Video saved the best for last, albeit the best wasn’t that much of an accomplishment with their Welcome to the Blumhouse series releasing its final two films in their 2021 run. While last year’s features were of higher quality and the films saw an interesting cast of familiar performers, it seems this year […]
