Movie Review: Insidious: The Final Key

Now that the “Insidious” series has dropped its “chapter” moniker, it’s becoming difficult to remember which episode you are watching.  But with a timeline more jumbled than the “Fast & the Furious”, even the Chapters weren’t much help.  To be clear, this is the fourth movie in the series, but takes place both first and [...]

Top Films of 2017 – Dan’s Picks

Oh 2017, how you disappointed me. While many of my most anticipated films were quite good, others I ended up loathing. I really think that this year has been a disappointment overall, especially the summer. This is the year when I grew tired of Marvel's formula and fell out of love with Star [...]

Top Films of 2017 – Kevin’s Picks

Wow, what a year!  The Horror genre continued to impress, sequels continued to depress, and the Comic Flicks began to digress!  Virtually every one of the "sure-fire blockbusters" failed in one manner or another, and at least one CINEMATIC UNIVERSE crumbled under its own weight.  Only Disney seems to stand, unfaltered, sweeping up [...]

Movie Review: “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”

Over twenty years ago the first “Jumanji” showed us the most dangerous board game since Ouija. Now the apparently sentient game is back, having remodeled itself to lure in victims of the digital age. A short prologue begins in 1996 after the discarded game is found washed up on a beach.  Overhearing an angsty teen [...]

Movie Review: “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

After watching “The Last Jedi” one thing has become clear.  Disney is intimidated by the Star Wars property they own.  Its massive value, rabid fan base, and cultural significance has frightened the house of mouse from doing anything unique. Instead, they keep falling back on saga-old cliches, dramatic head-fakes, and critical injections of nostalgia.   [...]

Movie Review – “Only the Brave”

On the surface “Only the Brave” may resemble a number of other dramatized true stories.  Too often these movies end up homogenized and dull.  But that’s not the case with “Only the Brave”, a film that stands tall near the top of its genre. On June 30th, 2013, a group of 19 firefighters known as [...]

Movie Review: “Blade Runner 2049”

Over the past few years, we’ve suffered through a swash of uninspired sequels being made decades too late.  Studios fish for our time and money with nostalgia garnished hooks.  Occasionally, the regurgitation offered up wasn’t entirely bad, but it’s difficult to recall any that verged on perfection. When a follow-up to the sci-fi classic “Blade [...]
