Posted: November 30, 2018 at 10:27 am   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

By Matthew Kistner ​Diederik Van Rooijen’s The Possession of Hannah Grace was advertised in a way that made audiences believe that maybe movie-goers might be in store for a different kind of possession horror film, with a heavy focus on what happens to the human body after an exorcism is performed. With the expectations of […]

Movie Review: ‘The Front Runner’ Starring Hugh Jackman, Vera Farmiga, J.K. Simmons

Posted: November 21, 2018 at 8:46 am   /   Movie Reviews

It’s hard to imagine a time where negative news could come out about a candidate, and completely derail their campaign. Yet that is exactly what happened in 1988, when Senator Gary Hart was the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination until news of his affair. All it took was three weeks for his bid to completely […]

But any given day, you’ll read headline after headline about political parties going after each other, building walls, and racial tensions. […]

Movie Review: ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler

Posted: November 16, 2018 at 7:49 am   /   Movie Reviews

Fantastic Disappointment: The Crimes of Warner Bros. As I, almost shamefully, revealed in my review of 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, I have not taken many advantages of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. I saw Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone, but never continued watching the series. I read the first 15 pages […]

Movie Review: ‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’ Starring Claire Foy, Sverrir Gudnason

Posted: November 9, 2018 at 8:35 am   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

Leave it to Hollywood to make another unnecessary film. That’s the feeling I got while watching The Girl in the Spider’s Web. It’s just not needed. The franchise adapted from Stieg Larsson’s best-selling novels has not fared as well in Hollywood, as the films have failed to bring in the big bucks that studio executives had […]
