Review: “Dune: Part Two”

Denis Villeneuve's "Dune: Part 1" was both a critical and financial success.  While it was wildly popular at the time, I had my reservations.  In all the ways it excelled, it still left me feeling a bit empty and underwhelmed.  As the name implied, it was all set up and exposition for further parts that [...]

Review: “Argylle”

The most concise way to describe Matthew Vaughn's latest adventure, "Argylle?"  Fondue.  It's loaded with hot cheese, is messy at times, and if you're in the right mood, can be a lot of fun.  This is Vaughn's fourth espionage film in a row, starting with 2014's "Kingsman: The Secret Service," followed by the pre- and [...]

Review: “The Beekeeper”

After a few months of Oscar-Bait film binging, few things cleanse the palate better than an over-the-top action flick.  Jason Statham rarely disappoints in this genre, regardless of the movie's overall quality.  Director David Ayer is no stranger to this genre, so this collaboration has the potential to bee a blast, right? The story centers [...]

Review: “Night Swim”

Blumhouse has become a successful production company through a simple formula.  Find fresh new talent, give them a relatively low budget ($10–$15 million), and let them make the film they want without much interference.  Even if these moves don't take off, the studio breaks even at the very least. But repeatedly, Blumhouse produces many of [...]

Phoenix Critics Circle 2023 Award Winners

The Phoenix Critics Circle proudly announces its winners for 2023. “Oppenheimer” led the pack with four wins but was not able to snag Best Picture, which instead went to "Past Lives," which ironically did not win in any other category. The complete list of winners and nominations is listed below: [...]

Review: “Five Nights at Freddy’s”

As someone who has played nearly every game that a movie has been based on, it was refreshing to watch "Five Nights at Freddy's" with only minimal knowledge of the source material.  The game series is relatively simple in nature.  The player assumes the role of a lone overnight security guard tasked with watching over [...]

Review: “The Creator”

Gareth Edwards' "The Creator," his first film since 2016's "Rouge One," continues his legacy of gorgeous visuals paired with a logic-deprived script.  The story combines elements from "Blade Runner," "District 9," "Altered Carbon," and "Westworld," but only on a superficial level.  Fascinating concepts are introduced, but never given time to grow.  Instead, we are treated [...]

Review: “Talk to Me”

There have been a lot of conversations about the lack of creativity in Hollywood recently.  This has always been a general complaint but with the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike and studio execs responding by threatening to use AI to replace them, it has become a more serious discussion.  In addition, the summer of 2023 has [...]

Review: “Oppenheimer”

Christopher Nolan's "Oppenheimer" is a film of complexities.  At its core, it's a biopic about the man who led the Manhattan Project to success.  The story isn't told in the conventional sense, but mostly through his perspective.  When pondering the nature of quantum physics we're given brief glimpses inside Oppenheimer's (Cillian Murphy) mind.  The film [...]

Review: “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One”

When 2018's "Mission Impossible - Fallout" was released, it felt like the perfect way to conclude the current MI franchise.  Never before had a movie so expertly connected multiple threads of the movies before it and tied up plotlines that we thought had been abandoned.  When "Dead Reckoning" was announced, and repeatedly shut down due [...]
