“The Death of Dick Long”

Sometimes, the title of a film says everything about the story. A title like “The Death of Dick Long” says, to me at least, that we’re in for a rambunctious time of debauchery as dark secrets are exposed. In the case of “The Death of Dick Long,” director Daniel Scheinert is the story of a [...]

Review: “Abominable”

In the past year I have seen three different movies that have all tried to capture the magic of the original How to Train Your Dragon film. The first was Bumblebee, which made my top ten list last year. The second was How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (my review of it can be read here), which, while [...]

Movie Review: “Ad Astra”

If the Latin title isn't a big enough clue, "Ad Astra" lands squarely in the cerebral and philosophical sub-genre of science fiction films.  While the trailer does hint at a little action and mystery, they are simply window dressing to a film that somberly addresses depression, abandonment, and other existential questions. The film opens with [...]

Film Review: “Downton Abbey”

It was such an odd experience, sitting in the theater watching Downton Abbey with a crowd of other Downtonians. Like many people, I've only ever watched Downton Abbey either by myself or with one other person. The raucous laughter that erupted often throughout the screening felt very strange, mostly because Downton isn't considered a comedy [...]

Movie Review: “IT Chapter Two”

"Everyone loves your books, but they hate the endings" is a running joke in the movie that pokes fun at criticism author Stephen King has often endured.  Whether it's meant to be reassuring or an excuse is difficult to ascertain.  "IT Chapter Two" is competently made, but lacks the sincerity of the first. And the [...]
