LOGAN LUCKY

Steven Soderbergh is one of most fascinating and eclectic filmmakers out there. Coming onto the scene in 1988 with his debut indie hit film Sex, Lies, and Videotapes, Soderbergh has since moved onto giving us films in all sorts of different genres and styles, from zany comedies […]

GOOD TIME

Oh, Robert Pattinson, you’ve come so far. Remember when you were doing schlock like Twilight? I’m sure you’d like to forget, but hey, we all have to make our big break somewhere, I suppose. Just like your co-star Kristen Stewart, you’ve shown that you’re actually an actor […]

ANNABELLE: CREATION

In 2013, modern master of horror James Wan gave us The Conjuring. Its positive reception and massive box office success started a new renaissance of horror films being taken seriously again from audiences and critic alike. While I think the films are kind of overrated, especially the […]

ATOMIC BLONDE

Ever since John Wick came out of nowhere to blow everybody away back in 2014, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the next projects from directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski. Stahelski went on to make John Wick: Chapter 2, delivering one of the best action film sequels of all time (and my […]

DUNKIRK

I’ve always found Christopher Nolan the director to be much stronger than Christopher Nolan the screenwriter. The man has a wonderful vision that he expertly brings to the big screen with an immense level of technical craft, but when it comes to actually executing the story the […]

THE BIG SICK

Ah, romantic comedies. No other genre fills people with so much naïve hope and then with eventual heartbreak and realization. They often feel very phony, with two stars with hardly any chemistry both serving up a predictable and safe plot, with hardly an realism or consequence. Sure, […]

WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES

Remember back in 2009 when a reboot was announced for the Planet of the Apes series that would chronicle the rise of the apes, and everybody rightfully laughed? Do you remember when it actually turned out to be quite good? Then the sequel was even better? The new Planet of […]
