Abominable (2019) – Movie Review

Abominable, the latest offering from DreamWorks Animation, has a lot going on in its 97 minutes. It also requires you to sit through every one of those 97 minutes due to photos included in the end credits. Yet the film doesn’t make you feel like it’s an obligation to do so; instead, you want to […]

Judy (2019) – Movie Review

Here’s all you need to know about Judy: Renée Zellweger was born to play this role. A more powerhouse characterization of one of America’s most beloved entertainers, there was not.

Running With The Devil (2019) – Movie Review

Hellmington (2019) – Movie Review

Hellmington – stylized as HELLmington in early press materials – is a mixed bag. By no means is one to expect a well-polished indie thriller, but one also doesn’t expect the gritty story out of a low-budget affair like this. The effort put forth by fledgling filmmakers Justin Hewitt-Drakulic, Alex Lee Williams, and their entire […]
