Review: ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’

As I get older, I struggle with the idea of fantasy films. There are fewer days ahead than there are behind me. Yet, no matter our respective ages, there is always a hero to look up to, someone whose values we want to take in and adopt as our own. Some of us have kids, [...]

Review: ‘Wonka’

There’s something peculiar about a character, first drafted on the pages of a novel, immortalized by a fantastic talent in a beautiful classic film adaptation, woefully reimagined by two gifted talents, and now marked by a brilliant pastiche of the character originated on the pages of a classic novel: Willy Wonka, this time brought to [...]

Review: “Blue Beetle”

The key to any piece of art is to draw you in, to transfix your eyes onto the beauty within. Art can help you find your soul. Art can also drive you nuts if you get too invested in it. Couched somewhere in between is Ángel Manuel Soto’s Blue Beetle, now in theaters. Blue Beetle [...]

Review: ‘Barbie’

The buzz in industry press and social media is high regarding the impending Barbie/Oppenheimer opening on July 21st. I’m here to say that Greta Gerwig’s Barbie is a refreshing, spritely comedy that holds its PG-13 rating close to its chest. A number of its themes do run more adult and high-brow. To parents thinking of [...]

Movie Review: Reminiscence

Lisa Joy’s directorial debut, “Reminiscence,” is the type of film the major studios would have released in the 1990s or early aughts, appealing to adults without spending a fortune on the budget. The movie hits theaters and HBO Max today. Hugh Jackman plays Nick Bannister, a private investigator using technology to scan people’s minds for [...]

“Mortal Kombat”: Game-based Reboot is More Style Than Substance

Mortal Kombat We live in an era of reboots and sequels where groups of disparate people come together for a common cause. Some have worked well (see “Logan” and “X-Men: First Class” as examples), while others have not worked out so well (see Josh Trank’s “Fantastic Four” as an example.) Don’t take that last suggestion [...]
