Midsommar Movie Review. A Waking Nightmare Cloaked In Sunshine

A waking nightmare cloaked in sunshine, flower crowns and psychedelics. Ari Aster’s sophomore follow up to his haunting breakout film Hereditary, is like the yang to its predecessor’s yin. Midsommar doesn’t rely on horror tropes to grip its viewers to the edge of their seats. It’s a slow burn kind of film that continually becomes […]

Men In Black: International Movie Review

Men In Black: International pulls us back into the world of the secret government agency that deals with extraterrestrial diplomacy first introduced with the original Men in Black film back in 1997.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters: The Destruction Of A Franchisee

Oh, no, they say he’s got to go… go, go, Godzilla! Oh no, this movie really sucks… no, no, Godzilla! Yes unfortunately this movie is an utter disaster of a film. Glazed over plot with bad characters and bad motivations with a focus on MORE KAIJUS, MORE DESTRUCTION. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all […]

Aladdin 2019 Movie Review. Good Idea, Bad Execution.

I know you’ve seen the memes of the terrible looking Genie from the first trailer released from Aladdin (2019) and if your original thought was “thats gonna be terrible”, you were right! This travesty of a remake/reimagining/reinvention, whatever you want to call it, is just downright bad. Honestly, Will Smith was not all that bad […]

If you’re on the fence about this movie and you’re thinking, “How are they ever going to top the first two?” You’ll get your answer within the first ten minutes of watching John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. The movie starts out right where we left off from the previous film as we follow the […]

Pet Sematary 2019 Movie Review. Why Are We Digging Up The Past

In my opinion, the Horror genre is the most difficult genre to use to make a great film. You have to make sure you create suspense and fear without it falling into the realm of comedy. I was very excited to see Pet Sematary after all of the horrifying trailers that were released last year […]

Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie Review

A sequel to a widely successful and loved film of any genre is difficult to pull off. Most of the time these sequels seem forced and rung out to squeeze every nickel and dime the studio can out of its beloved characters. In our new cinema landscape we are plagued with remakes, sequels, prequels, trilogies […]

Glass Movie Review

Glass is M. Night Shyamalan’s latest edition to his ever growing repertoire of films and the conclusion story to the popular Unbreakable “saga”. The film we have been waiting 19 years for!
