El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Review

“Run.” This was the single word uttered by Walter Hartwell White to his partner Jesse Pinkman, after saving his life by running over two notorious drug dealers in a season three episode of Breaking Bad, the absolute greatest work of drama to be produced for television. Jesse should have done just that, not just fleeing... Continue Reading →

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Review

Get your popcorn: there’s a brand new Tarantino flick back in town.

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum Review

Take cover: the boogeyman is back. No, I’m not talking about the creature under your bed, I’m talking about John Wick.

Us Review

Doppelgängers. Scissors. Red jumpsuits. This is Us: no, not the tear-jerker TV show on NBC, Jordan Peele’s rabidly-anticipated follow-up to Get Out, his debut horror film which was an unprecedented box office success and garnered four Oscar nominations.

Ben is Back Review

Or, perhaps more appropriately, Lucas Hedges is back (again), as there doesn’t seem to be a holiday season that goes by anymore without the budding star popping up in a slew of prestige projects. In the family/addiction drama Ben is Back, Hedges collaborates with his father director Peter Hedges for the first... Continue Reading →

BlacKkKlansman Review

It’s no secret we’re living in an increasingly turbulent political climate. Americans are more divided than ever before, with hate groups that have been considered all-but-extinct feeling empowered to crawl out of the woodwork at every turn. Cinema has long served as a powerful rebuke on those who hold power, but with the critical times... Continue Reading →

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 →

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.
