Classic Movie Review 'Lord of the Rings: Return of the King'
The ‘Undisputed Classic’ on the December 16th episode of the Everyone’s a Critic Movie Review Podcast is our final leg in the Lord of the Rings franchise, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. I could not be happier for this to be over. I wasn’t a big fan of bringing the Rings trilogy to the show and having watched all three for the second time in my life, I am elated to leave them in the past. Don’t misunderstand, I appreciate the achievement and the artistry but I just don’t care about this f...

The live-action Transformers franchise that has been running since 2007 is incredibly divisive at best. Although many people still continue to praise that original film, it’s also disliked just as muc...

'Mowgli' - Movie Review
Due to the fact that this film has been released on Netflix, I fear that many people will see the release of Mowgli as a film that’s just ripping off the idea of Jon Favreau creating a live-action ver...

Movie Review: '24 Hour Party People'
As I rebuild my DVD collection, I am finding some unique and terrific movies on the back shelves of Goodwill stores and library surplus sales. Here's a review of my latest find, 2002's Michael Winterbottom flick, 24 Hour Party People. What was the most important era in modern music? Many Americans would argue that it was the early 90s grunge explosion, and they would be wrong. They are wrong because there would not have been a grunge movement were it not for a concert that took place in a Manche...

Movie Review '13 Conversations About One Thing' 2001
Don't you hate it when someone tells a joke and you’re the only one who doesn't get it? That is how I feel about the movie 13 Conversations About One Thing. After reading a large amount of positive reviews I'm left wondering what did it was I not see. The film from Jill and Karen Sprecher, the lovely minds behind 1997's Clockwatchers, tells the interlocking stories of a group of dour New Yorkers beset by strange fates. In 13 Conversations About One Thing, Matthew McConaughey plays Troy, a brash ...

'Selkie'
Robert Massimi. Selkie at The Wild Project is a fun play. It has humor, absurdism, it makes you think a little and has a very creative set. Set in a fishing village, Deanna and Keaton are in love. Kea...
