First Man Review

Hollywood tends to be guilty of over-glorifying its subjects. This leads to a glamourized, and ultimately distorted perception of famous figures. Once in a blue moon, however, cinema actually demonstrates a profound power in humanizing our cherished icons, stripping away the fame and grandeur to reveal the beating, and often scarred, hearts at their cores....

Venom Review

We are currently in the midst of the longest hiatus between Marvel movies we’ve seen for quite some time. Thanks to the brutal cliffhanger left by Avengers: Infinity War, and little-to-no indication left by Ant-Man and the Wasp as to where things are headed, fan anticipation is becoming even more rabid as time goes by.

After Avengers: Infinity War left the Marvel universe on an incredibly bleak note, the timing couldn’t be better for Paul Rudd’s miniature-sized hero to sneak back in and rescue the mood.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado Review

If there is a movie that doesn’t need a sequel, it’s Sicario. As a hard-hitting action/drama with an alarming depiction of the Mexican drug war, the film works perfectly in self-containment. The original was no blockbuster, but with an $85 million global haul against a budget of only $35 million, Lionsgate saw fit to approach... Continue Reading →

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Review

By any reasonable standard, the Jurassic Park franchise should be long extinct by now. After the mixed reactions to Jurassic Park III, the proverbial asteroid appeared to have hit the series. But like Dr. Wu and the fossilized mosquito, Universal has tapped the amber once again to present another terrifying clone to the masses. J.A.... Continue Reading →

Incredibles 2 Review

After 14 long years, the Incredibles sequel has finally arrived. A large portion of millennials who were growing up during the period the first film was produced have children of their own now, and those fans are sure to tear up the box office this weekend as parents and kids clamor to revisit the quintessential...

Ocean’s 8 Review

Like a thief in the night, Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s franchise has crept back into theaters this weekend for a new round of criminal thrills and a fresh multi-million payday.
