Review: “The House with a Clock in its Walls”

At first glance, "The House with a Clock in its Walls" appears to be the next Goosebumps movie.  It has Jack Black, a creepy house, magic, and kids.  All the essential ingredients for a sequel to the 2015 movie.  But once you notice it's the first non-R-Rated film to be directed by Eli Roth, it's immediately apparent [...]

Review: “The Predator”

Thirty-one years ago he died in the first Predator film, now Shane Black has written and directed the latest chapter in the intergalactic-sport-hunter franchise.  Although technically the sixth film in the series, "The Predator" ignores the last 3 entries, two of which were AVP titles, and is instead a direct followup 1990's "Predator 2".  Black blatantly has fun [...]

Movie Review: “The Meg”

The film rights for Steve Alten's 1997 novel "MEG" were purchased almost immediately, and spent years  (decades!) bouncing between different screenwriter, producers, and directors.  We'll never get to see the Hard-R version Eli Roth was pushing for, but instead, we now have a PG-13 version by the director of "National Treasure" which gives us exactly [...]

Interview: Bo Burnham ponders on Technology, Social Media, and the Horrors of “Eighth Grade”

Youtube personality, turned stand-up comedian, turned Writer/Director, Bo Burnham, has crafted a coming-of-age story about an 8th Grade girl struggling with defining her identity.   There are many "coming-of-age" films out there, but "Eighth Grade" stands apart.  Its insight not only into the life of a middle-schooler but the impact social media plays in their lives.   [...]

Movie Review: “Skyscraper”

The pitch for "Skyscraper" had to be an easy sell.  "We've got The Rock.  Now imagine him as a John McClain type, but with only one leg! He's disabled! And he has to limp his way through a colossal conflagration to save his family!  It's like "Die Hard" mixed with "The Towering Inferno" and a touch [...]

Movie Review: “Sicario: Day of the Soldado”

Hollywood is always in search of it's next Golden Goose, a franchise that will keep people coming back for more.   This has spawned countless sequels, spin-offs, reboots, and remakes in a desperate effort to establish some form of reliable fanbase.  While there have been some highly enjoyable films spawned from this money-making-machine, the results are [...]

Movie Review – “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”

There's one thing that's accurate in the marketing for the followup to 2015's "Jurassic World", it's the subtitle of "Fallen Kingdom" as this entry hits a new low for the franchise.  Oh, how the mighty have fallen. I have a great fondness for Dinosaurs, in fact, I even own one.  I also have an unreasonable [...]

Movie Review: “Hotel Artemis”

At first glance, the trailer for "Hotel Artemis" could be mistaken for the "John Wick" spin-off series "The Continental."   Both feature a special criminals-only hotel that offers safety, medical attention, and rules to protect the patrons from each other.  But that's about where the comparisons end. "Hotel Artemis" takes place during a night one decade in [...]

Movie Review: “Hereditary”

A conversation that has been coming up a lot amongst my fellow cinephiles is "What do you define as scary?"  The conversation spawns from people asking either "What's the scariest movie you've seen" or "Is particular movie as scary as everyone says?"   There was even a wonderful panel that touched on these subjects at the Phoenix [...]

Movie Review: “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

Even as a child watching "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood", I could sense there was something different about him, something special.  At that age, and through adolescence, it was nearly impossible to define.  Each 30-minute episode shared with him felt comfortable.   As an adult, thoughts of his Neighborhood and Make-Believe Land were pushed back into the section of [...]
