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 King’s first that I ever read, but I barely remember anything from it; I didn’t see the Drew […]

The Innocents (2022) – Movie Review

Becoming. It’s what we all must go through in order to find out about ourselves, what we like, what we don’t like, and what we’re capable of doing. Of course, we’re used to seeing it in superhero films and awesome one-offs like Darkman, Fast Color, or Chronicle. But what if it was as low-key as […]

Last Night in Soho (2021) – Movie Review

It could be said that Last Night in Soho is director/co-writer Edgar Wright’s homage to the color-saturated Italian horror and Giallo films of the 1960s and 1970s. A naïve girl is accepted into a school in a distant city, whereupon she is embroiled in a mystery reaching far beyond her ken; this is essentially the […]

The Tent (2020) – Movie Review

The way The Tent operates is in confusion until its final reveal. A recent parallel would be M. Night Shyamalan’s Split, a similar movie swiftly redefined in its post-closing title twist, but Split at least didn’t keep you in the dark about its aims or its subject matter. With The Tent, we’re kept on a […]

Inheritance (2020) – Movie Review

Why do we, as a culture, indulge the self-important need to know so much about the wealthy and the powerful? Do we really respect them for “being just like us” when the trash behind their carefully-curated public image is revealed? Are we attracted to the money, the lifestyles, the cars, the houses, the glitz and […]

The Fanatic (2019) – Movie Review

Full disclosure: I am the parent of a special needs child, so I view these kinds of movies with a little more of a critical eye than most. I hope you understand. Welcome to my second unstarred review, where a film does good work amid tremendous problems. It’s in a place where a middling rating […]
