Mean Girls (2024) : Movie Review

When the original Mean Girls made its debut in April 2004, it found an audience eager for its classroom drama and its comedy which showed us at our backbiting worst. Twenty years on, its legacy can be found in the numerous “Get in, loser, we’re going _____” memes that pervade social media and the evergreen […]

Hellraiser (2022) – Movie Review

Author’s note: There’s something weirdly awesome and kinda nuts about watching a screener of a movie called Hellraiser and seeing a “Property of Disney” watermark pop up every now and again. Welcome to the new Hellraiser, a surprising revival and reboot of this 35-year-old film series. Like the ten films before it, Hellraiser is based […]

Firestarter (2022) – Movie Review

Let me get this out of the way: I have no attachments to the previous incarnations of Firestarter – neither Stephen King’s 1980 novel nor the 1984 filmed adaptation – in particular. The book was one of the first of his that I ever read, but I barely remember anything from it; I didn’t see […]

CODA (2021) – Movie Review

Superficially, CODA is the same kind of “be who you are” coming-of-age story where a kid from the wrong side of the tracks (really, is there a “wrong side of the tracks” these days?) finds a talent that makes them shine, lifting them out of the hell that is high school and bucking their family’s […]

Wrath of Man (2021) – Movie Review

Author’s note: I have not seen Le Convoyeur, the film upon which Wrath of Man is based. With the exception of maybe one or three films in his 23-year career, I dig on Guy Ritchie movies. There’s nothing else like them. The way he moves his characters through seedy underworlds, his jukebox-style use of music, […]

The Hustle (2019) – Movie Review

God, I’m a sucker for caper movies. From Charade to the last four Fast and Furious spectacles, there’s something devilishly delightful about hoodwinking and double-dealing. Maybe it’s because I saw the Marlon Brando and David Niven-starring Bedtime Story as a kid; however, I never saw its remake, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Thus, The Hustle – a […]
