BlacKkKlansman Review

I’ve recently had the pleasure of sitting down to watch Spike Lee’s latest hard-hitting film, BlacKkKlansman. Crammed into a nearly sold-out cinema full of anxious moviegoers, I underwent one of the more pleasant theater experiences of my recent memory. Not only for how respectful and participatory the audience was, but also because of how fascinating the film turned out to be. Surprisingly based on a true … Continue reading BlacKkKlansman Review

Mission Impossible: Fallout Review

It’s hard to believe we’re six films in and Tom Cruise is still going strong with his Mission Impossible series. In fact, I’d say his performance in Mission Impossible: Fallout is quite impressive, which I find to be rather abnormal for an actor this deep into a franchise. I’d have thought he’d lighten up, get lazy, or lose his passion for acting the part. But … Continue reading Mission Impossible: Fallout Review

Christopher Robin Review

Next on Disney’s extensive list of remakes and reboots, we have the reimagining of Winnie-the-Pooh and friends titled Christopher Robin. Arguably the most original of the bunch, Christopher Robin details the later life of Christopher (Ewan McGregor) after a series of significant events have left him without joy.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Review

Has there ever been as lazy of a topic as a cruise ship movie? Where all the characters of an existing franchise (in this case Dracula and all his monster buddies) get on a ship and take a vacation. Do film studios save money doing this plot or something? Well, regardless of why this film happened, it happened. And somehow the creators of Hotel Transylvania … Continue reading Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Review

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Review

I, like many kids over several generations, grew up watching Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood on PBS, and hold very fond memories of it from my childhood. Fred Rogers’ ability to teach simple, everyday things (like getting a haircut) as well as teach complex grownup things (like the Vietnam War) in a calming environment captivated us all. Allowing for him to go down in history as an … Continue reading Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Review

Skyscraper Review: Dwayne Johnson With a Vengeance

Dwayne Johnson’s new action flick Skyscraper is a hard movie to put a finger on. I guess it’s best summed up by the following two words: ridiculous and inconsequential. As many have pointed out, the plot of Skyscraper mimics the basic formula of Die Hard: action guy (Dwayne Johnson) in tower fights European terrorists in order to save family (his wife being played by Neve Campbell). … Continue reading Skyscraper Review: Dwayne Johnson With a Vengeance
