The Bad Guys (2022) – Movie Review

A children’s animated film which captures the snappy cool and dash of Steven Soderbergh’s Out of Sight and his Ocean’s Trilogy? I’m a sucker for heist films, so it’s not a question of “Sign me up,” but more “Give it to me. Now.” The Bad Guys – based on a series of children’s books by […]

The Spine of Night (2022) – Movie Review

The Spine of Night is a film that lives in the animated sequences of Panos Cosmatos’ Mandy. Very dark, brooding, mythic, violent, colorful, and nastily unforgiving. The good do not flourish here; only those with power stand a chance at existing in this world. Even more so when said power comes from a supernatural plant, […]

Onward (2020) – Movie Review

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World – Review

It’s been a pleasure watching Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III (Jay Baruchel) grow. Formerly the awkward, misfit son of a village chieftain, he’s found his place in their little Viking microcosm of Berk as a dragon master. As life evolves for him, he’s constantly thrown into different roles with little time to react or find sure […]

Coco

I’ll say this: Coco is the first movie which made my oldest daughter cry. Not out of fright, considering the film’s full of literal skeleton characters, but because she got the film’s point: the dead are not gone from us, as long as they’re not forgotten. In a year in which we’ve lost one of […]
