Gifted Movie Review

It was made very clear to me ridiculously ahead of time by my Chris Evans obsessed little cousin that I must do everything in my power, which is not much, to ensure I was assigned this film. Fortunately for me, once I saw the heartwarming preview, I was sold on my forced fate. Director Marc […]

T2 Trainspotting: Movie Review

The boys are back in town!  Renton, Sick Boy, Begbie, and Spud return in Danny Boyle’s long awaited sequel to Trainspotting, and while Edinburgh may have moved on toward gentrification and modernization, the boys are still coming to terms with the demons of their past. Twenty years have passed since the heroin deal that was supposed […]

Fifty Shades Darker: Movie Review

I get it. I’m not the target audience for Fifty Shades Darker. So what? I appreciate that life has more to offer than hot wings and beer. Full disclosure, I love hot wings and beer. While Darker is far from perfect, it manages that rare cinematic feat of being a sequel surpassing its predecessor in […]

Patriots Day: Movie Review

I never expected Patriots Day to be the first feel-good movie of 2017, but I didn’t think it would make me so uncomfortable. I knew I’d see the gruesome aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, but that wasn’t the problem. I also knew the bombers violently clashed with police, but I was good there, too. […]

A Monster Calls: Movie Review

A Monster Calls weaves beautiful animation and heart-wrenching live action to tell the story of a boy coping with his mother’s (Felicity Jones) protracted struggle with cancer. Death comes to us all. Once it does, our job is done. It’s up to the living to pick up the pieces and reconcile what it all means. […]

Silence: Movie Review

Silence is one of the most beautiful movies I’ve ever seen. It’s cruel, brutal and intense, but this film’s dreadful beauty is undeniable. Martin Scorsese’s passion project was twenty-five years in the making. Maybe that’s a good thing. His deft hand helming a film this heavy pays off. Rather than using violence like a club, […]

Fences Movie Review

Fences Movie review: Denzel Washington takes on mounting Fences from the stage to the screen and serves not only as its lead but as its director. In Denzel Washington’s third directorial feature, he tackles an emotional and significant American story adapted from August Wilson’s play by the same name. Washington reprises his former Broadway role […]

La La Land: Movie Review

Go. See. This. Film. La La Land has been one of the most hyped and raved about films this season, and for good reason. It is an absolutely epic romantic and gut wrenching musical, but not the kind you’re used to. The film does contain some typical aspects of classic musicals and love stories, but […]

Hidden Figures: Movie Review

Hidden Figures is based on the true story of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, spotlighting their contributions to the history of modern aerospace technology during the height of the space race.  True to its title, the film’s plot centers around the ground breaking work of these three African-American women whose historical acknowledgement and legacy […]
