Midsommar Review

Horror has a new name, and that name is Ari Aster. After possessing the minds of Sundance-goers with his unsettling directorial debut Hereditary in 2018, the auteur's breakout hit enjoyed a wide release under A24 and turned out to be the most profitable release ever under the label. Now only one year later, A24 is... Continue Reading →

Spider-Man: Far From Home Review

Last week was the 4th of July, and while many Americans perched on hillsides to observe fireworks displays to celebrate Independence Day, many of those same patriots settled into cinema seats over the holiday weekend to take in the brand new Spider-Man movie. 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.

Child’s Play Review

Dark Phoenix Review

In Greek mythology, a phoenix dies in a fiery display of combustion, and is later born again.

Unfortunately, Fox has fumbled their franchise conclusion once more, and instead of... Continue Reading →

Godzilla: King of the Monsters Review

Godzilla will always be king, but every reign has its bad days. Godzilla: King of the Monsters is one of those. As the second entry in Legendary’s Godzilla franchise, and the third American hack at the titanic beast overall, it’s becoming clearer that Westerners may never produce a Godzilla film as strong as some of...

Aladdin Review

Whether you asked for it or not, your wish has been granted: Aladdin has been remade. As part of Disney’s current phase of rebooting classic animated works to live action, the beloved 1992 film is the latest to be updated into a special effects extravaganza tailored to serve the masses. Similar to Bill Condon’s Beauty... Continue Reading →

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. Returning for a third round in what is quickly proving itself one of the greatest action franchises of all time, Keanu Reeves teams up with stuntman-turned film director Chad Stahelski once again for John...
