Movie Review: ‘Rocketman’ Starring Taron Egerton, Bryce Dallas Howard

Posted: May 31, 2019 at 6:47 am   /   Movie Reviews

By now most moviegoers have probably seen Bohemian Rhapsody.  While they are aware that it was nominated for quite a few Oscars, the film has been criticized for sugarcoating Freddie Mercury’s promiscuity and rampant drug use.

Posted: May 25, 2019 at 11:20 pm   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

What if Superman were evil? What if there was no hero to stop the villain? Sounds like a dark thought to me. Well, that’s exactly what Brightburn – the new film from writers Brian and Mark Gunn – is all about. If the Gunn name makes you think of James, don’t worry – he’s the […]

Posted: May 17, 2019 at 8:13 am   /   Movie Reviews

Usually, I don’t do this, but the plot of John Wick 3: Parabellum is pretty simple. If you want the full review, skip to the next paragraph. If you really just want an abbreviated but accurate TL;DR – people want to kill John Wick. John Wick does not want them to kill John Wick. A […]
