Review: 'Love, Simon'
Coming-of-age films could have the most important duty within the film industry. If successful, it could become iconic and a bit of a trend-setter within a particular era in history. The first big inf...

'Please Stand By' (2017)
“Like Spock, for example. He’s half-human, half-alien. He has trouble dealing with his emotions. Where did it say that? That’s just how he is.” Although Stand By Me is a fairly predictable film and un...

Movie Review: 'Super Troopers 2'
Super Troopers 2 is about as good as the mediocre Broken Lizard comedy group could make it. Seventeen years after the original Super Troopers achieved a modest cult following for the shenanigans of th...

Annihilation (2018)
Blackwater National Park reported that a lighthouse was surrounded by something they termed “a shimmer.” One of the wardens went in to investigate. Never returned. Let me get right to the point. Annih...

'Pacific Rim: Uprising' - Movie Review
The first Pacific Rim was a very divisive film. Sure, it had its fair share of fans, but critics and fans either had a blast with it or it just wasn’t for them. For myself, I was on the former end of ...

Movie Review: 'The Miracle Season'
Caroline "Line" Found was a young force of nature in her too short 17 years. When she was killed in an accident, it left her small community in Iowa City, Iowa, devastated, especially the members of h...

'Rampage' - Movie Review
Movies like Rampage hit the big screen many times each year, but they never stand out from the rest, because they’re meant to appeal to the lowest of demographics. Kids between the ages of 10 and 16 f...

'The Greatest Showman' - Movie Review
I’ve never been over-the-moon about musicals per-say, but any musical that has catchy songs will always have a special place in my heart. If a movie can make me smile through its music, regardless of ...

Movie Review: 'Isle of Dogs'
There is an unsuspecting smugness to just about everything Wes Anderson directs. I say unsuspecting as a way of giving benefit of doubt to the Isle of Dogs director, that perhaps the smugness is not a...

'Violet Evergarden' - Series Review
I rarely review anime shows, due to the fact that I usually don’t get to them until they’ve been recommended by many people first, but Violet Evergarden was a short series that I felt like getting int...

Movie Review: God's Not Dead: Let There Be Light
Thus far, the God’s Not Dead franchise has been defined by its vengeful hatred toward anyone who was not a hard right Christian. Characters in the first God’s Not Dead were punished with Cancer diagno...

Movie Review: Ready Player One
Ready Player One is a giddy sensory overload. Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s cult novel packs an eye blasting amount of pop cult ephemera into its 2 hours and 20 minutes run time and ...

Movie Review: 'Salome' & 'Wilde Salome'
The mercurial Al Pacino decades ago passed into self-parody. It was a sad passing, watching one of the most powerful and fascinating actors in movie history begin to rely on bellowing, over-the-top no...
