Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Review

Get your popcorn: there’s a brand new Tarantino flick back in town. Cinema’s beloved bad boy has returned with a whole fresh round of blood, choice language and film references, and if the director is to be believed, it’s your second-to-last chance to see his work on the big screen before the venerated filmmaker retires....

The Lion King Review

The king has returned. But were you eager for his return? If you're like most of America, then your answer is probably yes. If you're like many film critics though, then probably not so much. And I can understand their lack of enthusiasm. As the latest example in a long line of classic Disney animated... Continue Reading →

Crawl Review

In a case of rather unfortunate timing, the hurricane disaster pic Crawl was released last weekend over the same time period that tropical storm Barry made landfall in Louisiana. Strangely enough, the picture even stars the coincidentally-named Barry Pepper. Thankfully, though there was one reported death, the tempest was less violent than the most dire... Continue Reading →

Midsommar Review

Horror has a new name, and that name is Ari Aster.

Swinging back into theaters for the seventh time in the web-slinger’s live... Continue Reading →

Annabelle Comes Home Review

It’s creepy doll season at the cineplex. With a Child’s Play reboot, a ventriloquist dummy-populated Toy Story 4, and now a new Annabelle sequel all coming out within the same two weeks, something is certainly up. I don’t know about you, but I won’t be visiting my local toy store anytime soon. As the third... Continue Reading →

Child’s Play Review

In a stroke of scheduling genius, the new Chucky reboot was released concurrently with Toy Story 4 over this weekend. Both films are about toys coming to life, but offer slightly different results. If you opted for the one that involves a sadistic knife wielding butcher in the form of a creepy doll, then you’d... Continue Reading →

Toy Story 4 Review

Just when you thought play time was over, Toy Story is back. Nine years after concluding their critically-acclaimed and widely-popular animated trilogy, Pixar has produced yet another emotional capper to a masterful series of films that already had one. While inessential and unasked for, Toy Story 4 is another rousing instant classic up to par... Continue Reading →
