Sicario: Day Of The Soldado Movie Review

In 2015, Sicario wove together seemingly disparate threads to tell a story that’s tragic on personal and geopolitical levels, delving into the ultraviolent world of the Mexican drug cartels. In 2018, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro reprise their roles for further exploration of a world far more violent than most Americans can relate to […]

The Seagull Movie Review

The Seagull Movie Review: When it comes to film, only a few things are worse than completely wasting an incredible cast. The Seagull features a cast that includes the likes of Saoirse Ronan, Annette Benning, Elisabeth Moss and Corey Stoll. It is an adaptation of what appears to be a fantastic play. Despite its incredible […]

A Quiet Place Movie Review

It’s no secret that 2017 was an outstanding year for horror and genre films, a year which culminated in Academy awards for genre films Get Out and The Shape of Water. A Quiet Place looks to keep that momentum going as it is the first truly great horror film of 2018. Packed with as much […]

Annihilation: Movie Review

The latest sci-fi flick courtesy of Paramount studios, Annihilation, finally arrives for American audiences and proves to be a match for that studio’s 2017 triumph, Arrival. Their newest venture into the genre is just as visually and intellectually captivating, this time helmed by Alex Garland (Ex-Machina) who not only directed, but also wrote the adaptation […]

Fifty Shades Freed: Movie Review

When I started writing about movies, I wanted to find something positive to say about every movie I saw. As time has passed, some movies I’ve seen seemed to accept the challenge, daring me to stoop to troll-level snarkiness. I’d like to think I’ve resisted the temptation to be negative for its own sake. At […]

Darkest Hour: Movie Review

I didn’t live through World War II. I’ve tried with little success to understand what it felt like to live in a world facing such an urgent and terrifying existential crisis. What glimpses I’ve gotten have often come from movies like Darkest Hour. The film recalls Winton Churchill’s (Gary Oldman) early days as prime minister […]

Phantom Thread: Movie Review

When Phantom Thread ended, the very first thing that came out of my mouth was, “Wow.” I just wasn’t sure what else to say after that. I knew I absolutely loved the film, but I couldn’t think of the right words to express how I felt about it. I don’t typically sit through the credits […]

The Shape of Water: Movie Review

Guillermo del Toro returns with another fantastical drama, The Shape of Water. As a fan of his work, I was interested in what this film would bring to the table. It did not disappoint. The film is about a mute woman named Elisa Esposito who discovers an amphibious creature within the Occam Aerospace Research Center she […]

Murder on the Orient Express : Movie Review

It’s been nearly two decades since the last incarnation of this Agatha Christie murder mystery, and nearly half a century since the most famous adaptation by Sydney Lumet. In keeping with the star-studded cast of the latter, Kenneth Branagh’s venture into the world of Hercule Poirot includes an impressive cast along with an impressive infamous […]

The Snowman: Movie Review

Thomas Alfredson returns after 6 years away from the director’s chair to helm the big-screen adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s novel, The Snowman. With a cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, J.K. Simmons and Val Kilmer among others, The Snowman seemed poised to be a great film. Yet despite having a fantastic cast, director and […]

Breathe: Movie Review

With his new film, Breathe, Andy Serkis is the latest actor to try his hand at directing a film. Many have done this over the years. People such as Ben Affleck and Clint Eastwood have found great success in their directorial attempts. Then you have others like Tim Allen and Johnny Depp who weren’t able […]
