School’s Out Forever (2021) – Movie Review

June 18, 2021 / 0 Comments

Extinction-level event, apocalypse-style films usually go one of two ways. The first is the extent to which the Mad Max films go, where everyone’s reduced to the barest minimum in a kill-or-be-killed setting. The second is a more measured approach, possibly where life would stand before the Mad Max kinda thing happens. Where everyone’s just […]

Luca (2021) – Movie Review

Here we go again… the good ol’ “make ’em afraid, then watch ’em squirm” Disney movie. From The Little Mermaid onward (and kind of reversed with the original Pete’s Dragon), this theme is a mainstay in children’s programming and films. Yes, it’s a metaphor for growing up and into the world around us, but isn’t it a […]

Woe (2021) – Movie Review

Indie horror films usually fall into two categories. The first is in being a smallish horror film trying to hold its own against the big boys, and these often prove to be more fun than their studio-funded brethren. The second lies in a deeply personal realm, where things make more sense to the director and […]

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard (2021) – Movie Review

June 15, 2021 / 0 Comments

I’m going to put it as bluntly as I can: The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is all show, little go. But what show there is can be at least defined as “entertaining” and “it does its job,” if you were a fan of the first film. (I was.) There’s not much to either of these movies; […]

In the Heights (2021) – Movie Review

June 10, 2021 / 0 Comments

The filmed version of In the Heights is an amped up, in-your-face, vibrant celebration of life. From the eye-popping choreography by Christopher Scott to the vivid photography by Alice Brooks capturing every nuance and bead of sweat dropped over a few of the hottest days in New York City, this film encompasses the greatest of our heart’s […]

Caveat (2021) – Movie Review

June 3, 2021 / 0 Comments

In Caveat’s tightly-wound, excruciatingly tense 88 minutes, you’ll never have a moment where you think, “I’ve got a moment to breathe.” No. Everything – from the introductions to our three characters to the maddening ending leaving some facets unexplained – is wrong (in a wonderful way) and totally off (and off-kilter) about this movie. With his […]

Let’s step back about 25 years and open this review with some film dialogue, shall we? Person 1: Why did you kill my mother? Person 2: Why? WHY?! You hear that, ___? I think ___ wants a motive. Hmm, I don’t really believe in motives, ____ – I mean, did Norman Bates have a motive? […]

A Quiet Place Part II (2021) – Movie Review

May 26, 2021 / 0 Comments

Writer/director John Krasinski didn’t want to make a sequel to his 2018 smash A Quiet Place, claiming it was “a one-off,” something that needed no further advancement. However, he soon realized the possibilities of expanding the world of the film and the metaphors which rang so soundly throughout it. A Quiet Place wasn’t just about […]

Killer Concept (2021) – Movie Review

One of the pandemic movies I was fortunate to review last year was this little gem of a no-budget independent film called Driven, starring Casey Dillard and Richard Speight, Jr. When you know the filmmakers and actors are working with a limited budget and crew with no access to locations or props they already own […]

P!nk: All I Know So Far (2021) – Movie Review

Full disclosure: I’ve been a fan of P!nk’s since hearing “Most Girls” in 2000. As early as this part of her nascent career, I could tell she was a disruptor. She wasn’t happy with being slammed into the same space as her female contemporaries. Everything was different – her look, sound, vocal tone, and a […]
