Migration : Movie Review

Half of children’s films and television shows are about conquering fear of some kind. Maybe a character’s parents have trained them to be afraid of the big world around them or another being they consider a predator. Or maybe it’s the standard “anthropomorphic animals can’t trust humans because humans are evil and will kill them” […]

Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget – Movie Review

It’s been 23 years since the original Chicken Run turned into the sleeper hit of 2000, endearing itself to children and adults alike with quick wit and Aardman’s exceptional stop-motion and clay animation.

Silent Night : Movie Review

In my review of No One Will Save You, I said, “A near-silent movie just doesn’t happen these days.” Who knew that 2023 would bring TWO near-silent releases, with one of them being action grandmaster John Woo’s return to American cinemas after a 20-year absence? Silent Night is a bit of a departure from Woo’s well-known “heroic bloodshed” […]

Trolls Band Together : Movie Review

Here we go with another Trolls movie. Which means another moral to whip at us, another opportunity to mash pop standards together and repackage them for modern ears, another soundtrack to sell. But what’s great about Trolls Band Together is that even the movie itself seems to know the franchise is wearing out its welcome; […]

Thanksgiving : Movie Review

SIXTEEN YEARS AGO… Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez teamed up to create Grindhouse, a smashing double-feature package emulating the 1970s exploitation films they grew up watching. Films like these ran in seedy theaters, prints were often scratched and damaged (sometimes missing entire sequences), and the subject matter often included lurid material not meant for the mainstream.
