Hi, everyone! I hope this message finds you well and healthy. These last two months have given us little to be excited about, and for those of you who’ve lost friends and family (as I have), there’s a lot of heartache as well. Please be safe out there, but don’t forget to be kind. Michael […]

We Summon the Darkness (2020) – Movie Review

April 16, 2020 / 0 Comments

NOTE: This film lives and dies by its twists and surprises. In order to keep things enjoyable, I refuse to print spoilers for this one, so please forgive the vagueness. This is a first for me: a murdering Satanic cult movie! Of course, there’s way more to We Summon the Darkness than it being beholden […]

Behind You (2020) – Movie Review

April 16, 2020 / 0 Comments

Behind You is a curiously odd low budget experiment. This isn’t to say it’s a bad movie, so don’t take that the wrong way. On the contrary, writers/directors Andrew Mecham and Matthew Whedon have made an admirable and frightening sibling of James Wan’s The Conjuring, confining a family to a sprawling house and filling the movie […]

Trolls World Tour (2020) – Movie Review

April 11, 2020 / 0 Comments

To be honest, the overly-colorful, incessantly-happy world of Trolls wasn’t something I was looking forward to visiting again. My review of the first film went out unstarred – not to be taken as “zero stars” – because of how at odds the film was with its morals and methods, but the film itself was decidedly not bad. Its […]

James vs. His Future Self (2020) – Movie Review

Let’s get it right out of the way: yes, James vs. His Future Self is going to get compared to the 2012 Rian Johnson classic, Looper. There’s no two ways around it: both involve a man traveling to the past and battling his younger self in hopes of changing the future, but that’s where the […]

Before I get started, I hope you all are safe and healthy. There’s a lot going on out there; please don’t be afraid to reach out to friends and family. Try not to let the world get you down, but if it becomes too much of a struggle, there are numbers to call for help, […]

Onward (2020) – Movie Review

March 6, 2020 / 0 Comments
Posted in

There are so many things to admire about the emotionally-charged Onward, Disney/Pixar’s latest offering. Themes of grief, single parenthood, sibling relationships, and broken families trying to put things back together accompany a sharp social commentary about how much of our world we take for granted every day. The nimble voice cast and vivid animation more […]

The Gentlemen (2020) – Movie Review

January 23, 2020 / 0 Comments

The mere mention of “A Guy Ritchie Film” evokes differing reactions from everyone, whether casual fans or considered part of the cognoscenti. Most think immediately of his first two breakout feature films – Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. Both are wittily-written and cannily-directed stories based in London’s criminal underworld, dealing with unsavory types […]

Dolittle (2020) – Movie Review

January 15, 2020 / 0 Comments
Posted in

The thing about Dolittle is this: we’ve seen it all before in numerous children’s adventure films. Dolittle doesn’t add very much to the cinema conversation, but it’s not meant to do so. It is purely meant to whisk its intended audience away with grand – albeit excessively computer-enhanced – escapism and fun. And many, many […]

The Grudge (2020) – Movie Review

January 3, 2020 / 0 Comments
Posted in

Typically, the January movie slate is full of either awards nominees or soon-to-be-forgotten films dumped hastily into theaters. Curiously, the new installment of The Grudge falls into neither of those categories, being an entertaining visit to familiar grounds. It winds up as the best of the Grudge films since the 2004 American remake, with an […]
