Jungle Cruise (2021) – Movie Review

July 29, 2021 / 0 Comments

Right away, Jungle Cruise throws you off with an altered Magic Kingdom logo underscored with a repeated E-G-B-E-B-G note sequence which suddenly becomes all too familiar once more instrumentation is added. Then you find yourself wondering, “What the hell is Metallica’s ‘Nothing Else Matters’ doing as the musical score of a Disney flick?!” Everything about […]

Black Widow – Review at Gunaxin!

The Marvel Cinematic Universe starts Phase Four – having previously ended Phase Three 2 years ago with Spider-Man: Far From Home – featuring Scarlett Johansson’s last ride as Black Widow. The good folks at Gunaxin have published my review, so head over there for all the fun! I saw this twice – once for review, once with […]

Too Late (2021) – Movie Review

July 9, 2021 / 0 Comments
Posted in

Too Late reminds me of several things all at once. The first is a scathing, profanity-laced tirade W. Axl Rose fires off about Warren Beatty before Guns N’ Roses launches into “Double Talkin’ Jive” from their 1992 pay-per-view concert in Paris. The second is Swimming With Sharks, a 1994 film about the horrible things a […]

F9 – Review at Gunaxin!

Hey! If you’re looking for my review of F9, the latest in The Fast Saga, click here and be transported into a world of mythical preposterousness. Yes, this one pushes the limits so hard, there ARE no more limits. F9 takes the cake, runs off with it, eats it, and still has a lot left over to share […]

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

June 15, 2021 / 0 Comments

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
Posted in

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
Posted in

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 […]
