The Almond and the Seahorse

In UK cinemas starting Friday, May 10. (Currently available on VOD in the US.) This review is going to be a little different, so please, bear with me. Being the caregiver of a loved one often comes with vast amounts of love, tension, blind hope, and dejection which often gives way to defeatism. We hope […]

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes

It’s been a long time – ten years, in fact – since I’ve been absolutely wowed by a CGI-driven film. To be fair, most big budget films these days are heavily CGI-driven, and they do entertain, but rarely do they pack equal parts high art, wondrous visual effects, captivating action and characterizations, and pointed social […]

The Fall Guy : Movie Review

Do not get up out of your seats until the mid-credits scene! Let’s face it. You’re not plopping your butt in a theater seat to watch The Fall Guy for edification and enlightenment; you’re in for daring stunts and star-powered entertainment while the thinnest of storylines holds everything together. One of my friends equated movies […]

Cash Out : Movie Review

I can understand putting a movie together to say that you did. God bless you if you’re ever in a position to create a piece of art that you like and you want to give to the world. But “just to say that you did” when you’ve got the likes of John Travolta, Kristin Davis, […]

Boy Kills World : Movie Review

April 25, 2024 / 0 Comments

The one thing separating Boy Kills World from its hyperviolent brethren is the one thing I can’t talk about: the ending. We’ve seen movies like this before – someone undergoes years of training to become an instrument of death, aiming to avenge his family’s death at the hands of oppressors – but the twist is […]

Swede Caroline : Movie Review

April 19, 2024 / 0 Comments

In UK cinemas on 19 April. US release unknown as of this writing. I loved how serious and seriously absurd Swede Caroline is. As a mockumentary, it’s not designed for huge laughs and one-liners; instead, it gently leans into ever-increasing (but very restrained) exaggeration and uses more subtle attacks than full-on jokes to get its […]

Abigail : Movie Review

April 18, 2024 / 0 Comments

Horror movies are always more fun when there’s a kid as the villain, and that’s exactly what we get with Radio Silence’s new film, Abigail. Supposedly a reimagining of Dracula’s Daughter, Abigail has enough of its own spirit to divorce itself almost completely from its origins thanks to Radio Silence’s beyond-dark sense of humor and […]

Damaged : Movie Review

The trouble with David Fincher’s seminal 1995 horror thriller Se7en is that it spawned all the knockoffs. Its “serial killer taunts detectives” trope isn’t a new thing by any stretch of the imagination (reminder: Se7en was only four years separated from another linchpin detective procedural, The Silence of the Lambs), but in the words of […]

Sting : Movie Review

Full disclosure: I’m an arachnophobe. Straight up. Yes, I understand their importance in the food chain, and hooray for them eating mosquitoes and all, but small or large, spiders to me just… euuughhh. So, how was Kiah Roache-Turner’s Sting for me? Honestly, fairly enjoyable while tweaking discomfort levels up just enough maintain a steady atmosphere […]

Dogman : Movie Review

March 29, 2024 / 0 Comments

The best that can be said about Luc Besson’s Dogman is that it keeps your attention. Starting in medias res and looping back from past to present, at least there’s enough there to make you want to see what happens next. Now, whether you can hang with weirdness for weirdness’ sake and veer wildly along […]
