Review: “A Private War”

.For the majority of us, it's impossible to understand what life is like in countries ravaged by war.  Even for those who don't take our American lifestyle for granted, how can we relate to what our fellow humans are going through in cities where death and destruction is the norm?  The media covers many of these [...]

Review: “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”

What should one expect from the sequel to a movie that was based on a fictional guidebook of magical creatures that itself was a spin-off/prequel to the most successful and beloved fantasy book series of all time?  The writing credits on IMDB for both Fantastic Beasts movies are telling in that J.K. Rowling is listed as the [...]

Review: “Overlord”

Many of us went into the screening for "Overlord" referring to it as "The Nazi Zombie" movie, a description many are likely to adopt.  To do so is a disservice.   This is also, contrary to popular theories, not the next "Cloverfield".  And although it's a Bad Robot project, J.J. Abrams did not write or direct it.  Instead, a [...]

Review: “The Girl in the Spider’s Web: A New Dragon Tattoo Story”

There seems to be an inverse relationship between the quality of a film and the length of its title.  "The Girl in the Spider's Web: A New Dragon Tattoo Story" is no exception.  The story is a follow-up to Stieg Larsson's "Millenium" trilogy, which is more commonly referred to as the "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" [...]

Review: Halloween (2018)

The Halloween series has been going on for a very long time. 40 years to be exact.  There have been multiple direct and indirect sequels, a remake of the first two chapters, and even a completely unrelated "Season of the Witch."  "Halloween: H20" marked Jamie Lee Curtis' first return to the series as Laurie Strode, in [...]

Review: “Bad Times at the El Royale”

Writer/Director Drew Goddard has thrown everything but the kitchen sink into "Bad Times at the El Royale."  There's no doubt he had a lot of fun with this movie, but will the average movie-goer? Drew is known mostly for his writing that has covered a number of properties in the J.J. Abrams and Whedonverses.  2012 marked his directorial debut [...]

Review: “First Man”

"First Man" teases a look at what you would assume to be one of the most interesting men in American History.  He earned a pilot's license before he had a drivers license, was a talented engineer, flew hundreds of different aircraft, many of which were experimental, survived multiple crash landings, and all of this occurred before he [...]

Review: “The Sisters Brothers”

The untamed American West was a place of stark contrasts.  A land filled with beauty and untapped potential, but it was also harsh, primal, and cruel.  Fortunes could be made and lives lost in the blink of an eye, often occurring at the same moment.  "The Sisters Brothers" masterfully taps into this ambiance of competing [...]

Review: “Night School”

There seems to exist a template that most modern comedies are built from.  Once, you're able to recognize the pattern, it's hard to ignore, and although "Night School" has some hilarious moments, it's dragged down by its lame by-the-numbers formula. Teddy (Kevin Hart) dramatically dropped out of High School in the midst of the Georgia SAT [...]

Review: “Assassination Nation”

In the early moments of this film, the narrator rattles off a warning list of upcoming "Triggers" which includes brief visual snippets.  At least one person got up and left.  They wouldn't be the last before the film ended. In the town of Salem (A great choice, if a bit on the nose), a rogue [...]
