Code 8 (2019) – Movie Review

December 24, 2019 / 0 Comments
Posted in

Code 8 started life as a 10-minute short (found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqO90q0WZ0M) concerning a dystopian future where humans with telekinetic superpowers aren’t treated like the gods found in comic books. Instead, they’re outcasts, pariahs stuck in dead ends and made to live in squalor, the rest of society unwilling to allow them into their homes, businesses, […]

Hi, everyone! Earlier in June, I posted a catch-up of reviews I’d done for the good folks at Gunaxin. Since then, not only did I get a new job at Mekanic, more reviews have been published, so are some bonus thoughts. Thanks to Phil at Gunaxin for providing me a place to rant and rave! […]

Richard Jewell (2019) – Movie Review

“I am currently 40 minutes into RICHARD JEWELL, and I don’t know if I can review it for several reasons. The biggest, of course, being today’s political climate. Without having read spoilers or reviews and from what I’ve seen so far, I’m guessing Eastwood goes hard against the FBI and the media, two targets of […]

On Thursday, November 7, I was fortunate to be invited to Howard Community College’s Dragon Digital studios to be a guest on Chris Reed’s movie review program, “Reel Talk.” The staff of Dragon Digital is exceptional, and Chris is a warm and welcoming host. He’s a vastly knowledgeable professor of film at Stevenson University, and […]

Frozen II (2019) – Movie Review

The cultural impact of 2013’s Frozen still resonates six years after its release. Children can be seen dressed up as the film’s heroic sisters on Halloween; its insta-hit song “Let It Go” is performed annually at school talent shows; film geeks are constantly parsing its many references and in-jokes; and even before the sequel’s first trailer dropped, toys […]

Marriage Story (2019) – Movie Review

November 7, 2019 / 0 Comments

Rare are the films which sweep you away with intelligent drama, spellbinding performances, and involving photography. Marriage Story is one of these rare films; however, it’s in reflecting on the film where it takes the opportunity to flatten you. This film reminds you love hurts, and the film hurts for love – not in the sense of […]

Motherless Brooklyn (2019) – Movie Review

October 31, 2019 / 1 Comment
Posted in

Sometimes, it’s possible to be overwhelmed by being underwhelmed. Writer/director/star Edward Norton’s Motherless Brooklyn – apparently a passion project for him since first reading the novel upon which it was based – strikes this curious tone, wanting to mean more and showing marvelous work underneath its ho-hum surface. Much of this comes from the sporadic […]

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) – Movie Review

October 18, 2019 / 0 Comments

To be honest, 2014’s Maleficent was off-putting to me, but not in a bad way; that it made me feel uncomfortable was one of the film’s strong points. Here was a movie which had the balls to make its bones with metaphors for the patriarchy, date rape, single parenthood, and unwanted children. Maleficent has now […]

30 Nights of Sex to Save Your Marriage (2019) – Movie Review

October 6, 2019 / 0 Comments

As we grow older, we find more and more that consumer products – especially music and film – aren’t marketed or made for us. Your chances of finding youth-oriented comedies in theaters are much greater than finding something made for those of us who’ve already been through the awkward transition between the teenage years and […]

Abominable (2019) – Movie Review

September 26, 2019 / 0 Comments

Abominable, the latest offering from DreamWorks Animation, has a lot going on in its 97 minutes. It also requires you to sit through every one of those 97 minutes due to photos included in the end credits. Yet the film doesn’t make you feel like it’s an obligation to do so; instead, you want to […]
