Review: “Knock at the Cabin”

The master of the twist, M. Night Shyamalan, is back with his best film since 2016's "Split."  That's not a very high bar considering his last two features were "Old" and the incredibly disappointing "Glass."  Shyamalan shares the screen writing credit for "Knock at the Cabin" with Steve Desmond and Michael Sherman, who adapted the [...]

Movie Review: “Women Talking”

“Do nothing. Stay and Fight. Leave.” These three phrases represent the tagline that graces the artwork for Sarah Polley’s riveting Women Talking. Grace. Now, that’s a fascinating way to describe the story Polley’s script lays out in front of us. Based on the novel of the same name by Miriam Toews, Women Talking is simplistic [...]

Movie Review: “A Man Called Otto”

Tom Hanks has graced our screens for as long as I can remember. Comedy is his forte, and as we've seen him age gracefully, his dramatic flair has surfaced, usually playing the hero of a story. In Marc Forster’s A Man Called Otto, he plays the anti-hero with a heart. Based on Fredrik Backman’s novel [...]

Review: “M3GAN”

In many ways, "M3GAN" is a concept we've seen numerous times below, dating as far back as Talky Tina's murderous threats in the 1963 "Living Doll" episode of "The Twilight Zone."  The most famous of these murderous dolls, Chucky and the Zuni Fetish Doll from "Trilogy of Terror," were energized by spirit possession.  The "Puppet [...]

Dan’s Top 10 films of 2022

The year 2022 was an odd one for film (some might call it "2020 part 2" or "2020 2") entirely because the studios suffered from similar supply chain issues that plagued most other industries during the year. No, they didn't lack building materials or suffer from cargo ships being backed up at ports or in [...]

Review: “Babylon”

Each year we get a couple of movies that romanticize filmmaking and cinema, but Damien Chazelle's "Babylon" might be the first one to fetishize it.  The main characters are each incredibly passionate about their art but revel in the decadence and chaos that surrounds the industry during the 1920s. We first meet Manny (Diego Calva) [...]

Review: “Avatar: The Way of Water”

13 years have passed since James Cameron last took us to the lush planet, Pandora.  The original "Avatar" was hailed as a leap forward in 3D and CGI effects.  Nothing back then even came close. Unfortunately, the story left much to be desired, copying other white-savior classics like "Dances with Wolves."  "The Way of Water" [...]
