Easter Sunday (2022) – Movie Review

You have to give comedian Jo Koy props for his hustle and how he has seized the opportunity to parlay his tumultuous life into smashing success. Decades before his self-financed 2017 Netflix special made him a worldwide phenomenon at the age of 46 (he’s 51 now), Koy brought the wackiness of growing up in a […]

The Black Phone (2022) – Movie Review

There’s something different about the ethos which drives director/co-writer Scott Derrickson’s adaptation of Joe Hill’s short story, The Black Phone. It’s not here for gratuitous displays of gore, nor is its purpose to be content with merely scaring its audience (although there are some fairly good jump scares hidden throughout). Instead, The Black Phone rides […]

Double Threat (2022) – Movie Review

Rare are the movies that try to do so much and scream so loudly, yet wind up saying nothing… and the independent action film Double Threat does just that. It is a demonstration of the inability to hold character development with stability and purpose, to the point where we’re screaming for something – anything – […]
