SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

They all say that bad publicity is still good publicity, and that couldn’t have been more true in the case of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. When the first trailer arrived and that horrid design was revealed, for once in a blue moon, the internet rightfully acted with disdain and revulsion. […]

BIRDS OF PREY (AND THE FANTABULOUS EMANCIPATION OF ONE HARLEY QUINN)

Suicide Squad is easily one of the worst recent comic book films, but as terrible films often do, it raked in the dough at the box office. Despite many hating it, Warner Bros. doesn’t hate money, so they of course greenlit a sequel. However, when you’re making a […]

PARASITE

WARNING: This review contains spoilers for Parasite, as it’s one of those films that’s difficult to really talk about without spoiling. Read at your own risk!      Ever since the start of last decade, films that have satirized and commented on the current state of wealth inequality and classism have been […]

MARRIAGE STORY

While I do love films that are just about “real life”, there are times where the reality of it can be overbearing, especially depending on the subject matter. The prime example for me is Judd Apatow’s This is 40. Well-acted and with developed characters, sure, but I felt […]

THE GENTLEMEN

I’m not all that familiar with Guy Ritchie’s work. I’ve seen his Sherlock Holmes films, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and Aladdin (2019), but I don’t really count those as “Guy Ritchie films”. His signature style is one you see in his films like Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and RocknRolla, […]

DOLITTLE

It’s not news that remakes and reboots are all the rage in Hollywood. Did you know that the Eddie Murphy version of Dr. Dolittle is a actually a reboot of a 60’s film based off the original books? Probably not. Even if you enjoyed Murphy’s version, were you clamoring for a new […]

JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a massive surprise for both the moviegoing public and Columbia Pictures. As it should, a sequel to Jumanji was met with skepticism when it was announced, and it reeked of desperation from Sony to repurpose any IP they own to make a quick buck. […]

PLAYMOBIL: THE MOVIE

I don’t know what Playmobil is. When I first heard of this movie, I thought they were those Fisher Price toys, which turned out to be Little People. Turns out, Playmobil is a German toy line that probably only the loneliest of kids with the cruelest of […]

JOJO RABBIT

Taika Waititi is definitely one of the more interesting filmmakers working today. On the surface, his movies seem pretty standard, but he has a certain wit and sarcasm to his material that he competently melds with drama and characterization. The Hunt for the Wilderpeople was one of my favorite films […]

THE LIGHTHOUSE

The VVitch: A New England Folktale was not only the best horror film of 2016, but I firmly believe it’s the best horror film of the decade, and one of the best of all time. Especially as a debut film, it was masterfully crafted by Robert Eggers, filling us […]
