Movie Review: MORBIUS Starring Jared Leto, Adria Arjona, Matt Smith

Posted: April 1, 2022 at 8:06 am   /   Film, Movie Reviews

Every year during Oscar season, fellow ReviewSTL critic Brad Heyen puts together a little competition for everyone to make their Oscar picks. Admittedly, I don’t see nearly as many movies as I’d like, so I’m often left making random predictions. This year, I just put Dune for every category. And I didn’t put the actors/actresses […]

Do you remember the time when people scoffed at the casting choices for Batman movies? Perhaps you recall when a comedian named Michael Keaton, known for roles like Mr. Mom and Johnny Dangerously, put on the cape and cowl. If not, maybe you remember when Heath Ledger from 10 Things I Hate About You and […]

The Foo Fighters can do no wrong it seems. The band is one of the last true rock n’ roll bands left. Frontman Dave Grohl is an acclaimed author and mega-rockstar. So for a band that has sold millions of albums, headlined every festival on the planet and can seemingly do no wrong, the next […]

It’s […]

Review: UNCHARTED Starring Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, Sophia Ali

When it comes to films based on video game franchises, it’s pretty safe to say the results have been hit or miss. And miss. And more misses. And lots o’ misses.

Both upset about their breakups at […]

Review: DEATH ON THE NILE Starring Kenneth Branagh, Tom Bateman, Annette Bening

Posted: February 11, 2022 at 7:49 am   /   Movie Reviews

Air-cool Pwah-roe. I think that’s how you say it. After seeing Murder on the Orient Express and spending half the film mentally trying to break down how to say Hercule Poirot (I took Spanish in high school, so trying to speak French is a bit of an exercise), I think I figured it out just […]
