MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Rampage’ is unbelievably stupid, if forgettable, fun

Video game movies are making a bit of a comeback this year, but they aren’t any more respected as in the past. This being said, there was one special case that nearly blew my socks off this year with “Tomb Raider,” the Alicia Vikander reboot that was hit-or-miss for critics, but warmed my heart as […]

MOVIE REVIEW: “Happy Anniversary”

I can’t deny my occasional guilty pleasure in watching a good romantic comedy. Unfortunately, it often seems Hollywood follows the same outline for every romantic comedy released, complete with the same generic cute couple, how they meet-cute and subsequently fall in love. Netflix’s new quirky, offbeat comedy “Happy Anniversary,” written and directed by Jared Stern, […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Ready Player One’ is Spielberg magic gone very wrong

It’s almost a cliché to love Steven Spielberg, but what isn’t to love? He’s brought us some of the most magical films we’ve ever seen in the span of a 40+ year career. The wonderful thing about Spielberg is that in his magic, he finds a way to always diversify his cinematic repertoire. For every […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Acrimony’ is ridiculous, yet somehow engaging fodder

There was a time in my life when I enjoyed Tyler Perry movies. I was young enough to find Madea to be hilarious, and the stories to be engaging enough to ignore their flaws. To this day, I still can very much so enjoy the early works of his as the benefit of nostalgia is […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Unsane’ is schlocky, bonkers, uneasy handheld fun

Most filmmakers have a “brand” that they subscribe to, what they’re known for. George Romero was known for zombie films, Christopher Nolan has intelligent epics, David Fincher has sleek, mind-bending thrillers, while Spielberg brings movie magic to any genre. Steven Soderbergh has never had a brand of an kind. His films are all so different […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Tomb Raider’ is 10 tons of video game fun

I like video games. I don’t often lay down my hard earned money on them, but the good thing is that I’m so bad at video games that it typically takes me over a year to complete a single game. “Rise of the Tomb Raider” was the first game I ever popped into my Playstation […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ meets the mark, but never blows past it

When I saw “Selma” back in 2014, I knew I had seen something special. Not only did it top the list of my favorite films of the year, it kickstarted my love affair with Ava DuVernay, a director as versatile as she is undeniably talented. When it was announced that her next film would be […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’ is a lean, mean killing machine

“The Strangers” was one of the first horror films I had the courage to watch as a kid, and because of it, it’s always stayed in my mind as one of my favorites. Not only because of that, but because home invasion was one of my biggest childhood fears. Today, that fear has somewhat subsided, […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Every Day’ is a beautifully touching teen romance

Teen romance is sort of my achilles heel genre of film, if only because it’s a throwback to a lot of the films I liked as a child. Still, the genre of films like this, especially those of literary adaptions, are really starting to get better and better, with movies like “Before I Fall” and […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Annihilation’ is a darkly imaginative, infinitely challenging treasure

Harkening back to my freshman year, one of the more surprising filmgoing experiences came in Alex Garland’s debut film, “Ex Machina,” a film that took the film world by storm in the absolutely genius way it went about handling a minimalist sci-fi tale of incredibly intellectual proportions. The film ended up being A24’s biggest release […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Black Panther’ is a paragon of blockbuster cinema mastery

The road to “Black Panther” has proven itself to be quite a long one. Ever since its first trailer hit back last June, the internet has been ablaze with excitement about Marvel’s standalone film to the tale of King T’Challa of Wakanda. Not only were people excited that the film actually looked good, but about […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Ritual’ is some shell-shocking indie horror

Everyone right now is talking about how Netflix shocked the world with their surprise drop of “The Cloverfield Paradox” immediately after the Super Bowl last Sunday, but it indeed cast a large shadow over any of the Netflix releases coming out in the near future. Whether it be their original series “Altered Carbon,” or their […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ is yet another unfortunately hilarious drama

The “Fifty Shades of Grey” films are a bit of a beauty to behold. They’re movies with talented filmmakers and actors working on them, and yet somehow are some truly horrendously written films adapted from truly awful source material. It’s the sole reason the films are so bad, as they’re all wonderfully shot, and as […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’ is a splendid surprise from the universe, hiccups and all

In the interest of readers, I will reveal a few plot points, but nothing that would constitute as a “spoiler” Holy moly. While reports have surfaced recently about Netflix seeking the rights to the as of then untitled sequel in the “Cloverfield” universe, no one could’ve predicted the way that Netflix would go about this […]
