A Wrinkle In Time

Director Ava DuVernay’s adapation of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time can be likened to a Maypole. At its center is a very solid adventure featuring two loveable, precocious children looking for their father under the most adverse of circumstances. Everything else waving and fluttering around it is certainly eye-catching and engaging, but never feels […]

But it’s with good […]

Into The Woods

When you’re as much of a fan of an established property that gets its own film adaptation, it’s often hard to step back and separate one from the other. 2012’s Les Misérables was given sweeping life with the full weight of a movie studio’s magic; however, on repeat views, it falls a little short trying […]

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

Let’s get this started: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is the best Jack Ryan film since 1990’s The Hunt For Red October. Masterfully shot, edited, and acted, this reboot of the Ryan saga kicks into high gear and keeps the intrigue coming fast and hard until it’s time to unwind… and that’s when the credits start […]
