Trailer Drop: THE CROW (2024)

Posted in ,

Thirty years ago, the world was gifted Brandon Lee’s final film, The Crow, based on a graphic novel by James O’Barr. This cinematic interpretation of the dark world of Eric Draven and his quest to avenge his and his girlfriend Shelly’s deaths became a touchstone for teens and moviegoers, further becoming part of our lives through […]

The Island Between the Tides : Movie Review

2024 Cinequest Film Festival Going into The Island Between the Tides blind – not knowing its origins or anything outside a base plot description – allows this film’s mysteries and inner workings to be discovered with surprise. Conversely, knowing what the film is based upon adds a different shade to the proceedings, changing perceptions irreversibly […]

Dune Part Two

As David Lean once set audiences agog with the widescreen vistas of Lawrence of Arabia and the adventures of T.E. Lawrence in the desert, Denis Villeneuve takes the mantle with the second portion of his big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. This continuation, Dune Part Two, picks up right where Dune Part One left us, and […]

Golden Years : Movie Review

February 21, 2024 / 0 Comments
Posted in

I absolutely adore Golden Years (original German title: Die goldenen Jahre) for always going into the unexpected. From the opening retirement scene being nothing more than a balloon release to having the characters wind up in completely different emotional and romantic spaces than you might predict, Golden Years lives in the discomfort of unpredictability. We […]

The Taste of Things : Movie Review

It’s almost too easy to liken The Taste of Things – originally titled La Passion de Dodin Bouffant – to one of the many multi-course meals featured in the film. You’ve got a brilliant appetizer with an introduction to the film’s dynamics through long takes and a dance of pots, pans, and various foodstuffs; a […]

Bob Marley: One Love – Movie Review

February 13, 2024 / 0 Comments

The name alone – Bob Marley – is enough to ignite memories in your head. Most of the time, these memories bear happy feelings, because it’s the kind of music great for chilling out or having a drink with friends. (Or, if it’s legal where you are, rolling a “bob.”) Whether it’s hearing him for […]

Out of Darkness : Movie Review

February 12, 2024 / 0 Comments
Posted in

A spare eight-person cast and a skeleton crew operating during the 2020 lockdown in a remote part of Scotland have pulled off a fascinating examination of our own instincts and how forcefully we protect what belongs to us. From the era in which our film takes place to our modern era, not much has changed: […]

Last Night at Terrace Lanes : Movie Review

January 31, 2024 / 0 Comments
Posted in

When looking at a film like Last Night at Terrace Lanes, you have to remember that movies like this aren’t big Hollywood productions. Director Jamie Nash and company are swinging for the fences with about one-thirtieth of the budget, and you have to admire the follow-through, even though it may not be an out-of-the-park hit. […]

I.S.S. : Movie Review

January 19, 2024 / 0 Comments
Posted in

What an irresistible, damning blast of a conceit I.S.S. executes in thrilling fashion. Nick Shafir’s script, appearing on the 2020 Black List well before the current Russia/Ukraine war, posits one simple conflict that bears so many implications on humanity itself: What if the US and Russian astronauts aboard the International Space Station watched war break […]

Mean Girls (2024) : Movie Review

January 10, 2024 / 0 Comments
Posted in

When the original Mean Girls made its debut in April 2004, it found an audience eager for its classroom drama and its comedy which showed us at our backbiting worst. Twenty years on, its legacy can be found in the numerous “Get in, loser, we’re going _____” memes that pervade social media and the evergreen […]
