The Commuter: Liam Neeson on a Train Review

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s another Liam Neeson movie! Only this time he’s stuck on a train, of all places. A recently laid off family man named Michael (played by the oh-so lovable Liam Neeson) commutes every day to work via train, only this time it’s different. He’s approached by a stranger known only as Joanna (Vera Farmiga), who gives him the task … Continue reading The Commuter: Liam Neeson on a Train Review

Insidious Review

For the past couple of decades or so, the genre of horror has become somewhat of a minefield. With the film industry so over saturated with overdone plots and jump scares, the clever and inventive movies often slip through the cracks in the form of independent productions. Films like It Follows and Tucker and Dale vs. Evil received little attention upon their initial release, while … Continue reading Insidious Review

Insidious: The Last Key Review

As we gracefully enter the new year of 2018, I remain hopeful that we’ll get plenty of insightful and clever films. Unfortunately, January is often the worst month for films, and a horrible way to begin the year. Cited as being a “dump month”, January is host to a slew of poor-quality, bottom of the barrel leftovers from last year. And this time we’re kicking off January … Continue reading Insidious: The Last Key Review

Darkest Hour Review

Widely regarded as one of the most significant figures of modern history (and a personal favorite of mine, next to Theodore Roosevelt), Winston Churchill maintains a positive reputation among historians for successfully leading his country through the Second World War. This respect and admiration was not an immediate sentiment toward Churchill, as his own political party and War Cabinet considered him too impulsive to be an … Continue reading Darkest Hour Review

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Review

Anticipating what I assumed to be a distasteful soft reboot of a fun, lighthearted adventure film, I expected the worst from Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. However, to my pleasant surprise (and curious confusion), Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle shares little resemblance to its supposed source material. Instead of a murderous board game that forces players to partake in increasingly difficult tasks, this involves the … Continue reading Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Review

The Disaster Artist Review: It Big Hollywood Movie!

In the same vain as Tim Burton’s 1994 film Ed Wood, The Disaster Artist documents the making of what is widely considered one of the worst films of all time, The Room. Written and directed by Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau, The Room is an absurd and perplexing piece of cinema full of unintentionally humorous scenes, bizarre writing, and atrocious acting. Despite the film’s irrationality, The Room … Continue reading The Disaster Artist Review: It Big Hollywood Movie!

A Christmas Story LIVE Review: A Big Yuletide Log

The latest beloved film to be nostalgically cashed in happens to be one my favorite holiday classics, A Christmas Story. Morphed into a televised musical and broadcasted live by Fox, A Christmas Story Live! attempts to recreate the magic of the original while establishing itself as its own musically inclined entity. Upon its release, the musical immediately received negative reactions from audiences, and for good reason. The … Continue reading A Christmas Story LIVE Review: A Big Yuletide Log
