Halloween Kills (2021) – Movie Review

Halloween Kills works best with a repeat viewing. Firstly, to watch it expecting the sudden shocks of relentless gore and violence; second, to focus on what director/co-writer David Gordon Green is giving us with this entry in his Halloween trilogy. While still obviously a slasher movie, there’s something else going on here about the cycle of violence […]

Lamb (2021) – Movie Review

I didn’t know what to say about Lamb before I started writing this; I never watched the trailer below, so if you do, you’ll go in much more forewarned and forearmed. It’s not a film you enjoy so much as experience; you’re not watching this one for anything close to resembling “the usual.” Billed as a […]

Wanton Want (2021) – Movie Review

I’ve been reconciling my opinions and feelings about Wanton Want for the last five days. The synopsis looks very easy to digest: “Struggling to complete his magnum opus, affectless writer Douglas Paynter (Nicholas Brendon) joins his wife (Jackie Moore) on a weekend getaway to relax and reset, and hopefully break through his writer’s block. But when […]

Dear Evan Hansen (2021) – Movie Review

“Lie become truth only if person want to believe it.” Nariyoshi Keisuke Miyagi, The Karate Kid High school sucks. You’re in a different world, away from the safe confines of grade school where everything made sense for all those years. Now, there are sports, clubs, dances, A.P. classes, theater productions, and all other manner of extracurricular […]

23 Walks (2021) – Movie Review

Many are the films looking at love at the beginning of two young, upwardly-mobile strangers’ lives. All throughout the years, whether by Howard Hawks or Nancy Meyers or Marc Lawrence, they’re all about the discovery of not only themselves as people, but who they can be as a couple. Much like Meyers’ own Something’s Gotta […]

Cinderella (2021) – Movie Review

The first paragraph of my review of Kenneth Branagh’s 2015 live-action Disney reimagining of Cinderella contains this sentence: “This is definitely not a modernized, jaded, snarky take on the Cinderella story; for those of you wanting the full-on fairytale, where the noble are just, the damsel in distress is saved, and all get their just deserts, […]
