Review: “Hawkeye”

The first two episodes of the eight-episode limited series "Hawkeye" drop on Disney+ this Wednesday. (Or late Tuesday night, depending on your time zone)   Each of the MCU limited series has had a unique flavor and "Hawkeye" continues this tradition but goes in a direction many might not expect.  And although the first two episodes [...]

Review: Ghostbusters: Afterlife

We're all getting a bit tired of the 30-year late continued saga films.  Nostalgia is hot and everyone wants to cash in, most without a real love or understanding of the source material.  2016's "Ghostbusters: Answer the Call" is a perfect example of this.  It was kinda fun and had nods to things fans remember [...]

Review: King Richard

On the surface, "King Richard,"  the story of Richard Williams raising his two daughters, Venus and Serena, to be tennis superstars is just as inspiring as the marketing claims it to be.  Through sheer determination, they went from having very little, living in Compton, to being two of the greatest athletes of all time.  It's [...]

Review: “Eternals”

It's already become cliche to say "Eternals is different than any other film in the MCU!"  And while it still fits the basic Marvel formula of action, abrupt humor, and excessive CGI climaxes, Kevin Feige has allowed some very bold deviations. Most notably is hiring Chloé Zhao to write and direct the film.  Her academy [...]

Review: “Antlers”

I love movies that have layers.  There's the base story, which can be enjoyed on one level, but then deeper meanings when you recognize the metaphors being explored.  This usually happens in horror and sci-fi films which are more apt at exploring everyday themes by framing them in extraordinary circumstances.  "Antlers" attempts to do this [...]

Review: “Last Night in Soho”

Edgar Wright seems to be on a quest to craft meta-musicals in all of his favorite genres.  The underappreciated graphic novel adaptation "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" was his first.  A few years later he followed it up with the action-romance "Baby Driver" and now the psychological horror "Last Night in Soho."  While none of [...]

Review: “The French Dispatch”

"The French Dispatch"  rekindled some old memories of mine.  Watching it I felt a familiar feeling that took time to place.  It was the same feeling I had as a kid reading, or being read, bedtime stories.  Sometimes the stories were very wordy, sometimes they were mostly illustrated, a few were comics.  The stories that [...]

Review: “Dune: Part 1” (2021)

Since streaming has taken off, many directors have lamented the loss of the theater experience.  While some focus on the communal experience of watching a spectacle with an audience, others emphasize the impact a massive screen and professional sound system can have.  Director Denis Villeneuve has openly complained about the decision to release his latest [...]

Review: “Mass”

Movies are a great source of escapism.  We can forget about the real world for a while and indulge ourselves in comedy, fantasy, or thrills.  But movies often serve another purpose.  They can give us insight into things we may have not considered before.  We can learn vicariously through the experiences of the characters on [...]

Review: Welcome to the Blumhouse Presents “The Manor” & “Madres”

The second "double feature" of Amazon Prime's "Welcome to the Blumhouse" series is a smart paring that has similar themes, female protagonists, and very different settings.   "The Manor" and "Madres" are both good examples of Jason Blum's successful production model where he gives new and unique writers/directors just enough money and support to make a [...]
