Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) – Movie Review

If we were to boil Kelly Marie Tran’s character Raya down to her bare essence, it would be this: You can’t lose what you don’t give away. After six years of running from monsters and enemies, she’s bitter and hard, the result of being bitten by betrayal and loss, especially at so young an age. […]

Judas and the Black Messiah (2021) – Movie Review

I haven’t published anything since Christmas Day 2020. During November and December, studios send critics all of their awards bait, whether on DVD or digital; my job is to go through all of it and see which one’s worthy of accolades, to separate the wheat from the chaff.

18 to Party (2020) – Movie Review

In 1993, Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused – a film focusing on the tumultuous final day of school in 1976 – showed audiences the chasm between personal struggles and teenage ennui being bridged by mischief, disappointment, love, enlightenment, and a blowout party. Most of the film centered on rising seniors and their want to carve […]

Minor Premise (2020) – Movie Review

Opening Friday, December 4 in theaters, virtual theaters, digital download, and On Demand. Every now and again, a movie comes along which hits you in a place that makes you feel like you haven’t lived up to your brain’s full potential. A movie that relishes in smarts without being too smart as to be inaccessible. It’s […]
