Hotel Artemis Movie Review

Hotel Artemis Movie Review: 10 years from now, the streets of LA are rampant with enraged civilians demanding clean water and rioting ever closer to the Hotel Artemis. The hidden in plain sight disheveled building serves as a safe haven for the underground world where members (criminals) drop in to get their wounds patched up […]

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 […]

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 […]

Baby Driver: Movie Review

Skrrt! Baby Driver is an absolute adrenaline rush, take a Lyft to see this or play Mario Kart afterward because it’ll leave you wanting tear up the road. I absolutely loved Edgar Wright’s (Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim) latest film as it turned out to deliver not only the thrilling caper flick I expected, but also […]

Suicide Squad: Movie Review

What happens when you get bad people to do good things? You get a ragtag bunch of Meta Humans who are forced into the Suicide Squad. This movie comes to us in the midst of the aftermath that was Batman v Superman, and after the impressive DC panel at Comic-Con that showed us new footage […]

Triple 9: Movie Review

If you’ve seen enough movies over enough time-and lord knows I’ve seen over a dozen-you can easily recognize trends in the industry that can help guide your movie going tendencies, often without needing to so much as read a single movie review, as crazy as that sounds. For instance, if a studio releases a big, […]

Furious 7: Movie Review

Cards on the table, I really liked the first The Fast and the Furious film. It was a super fun popcorn flick and the action was blistering. The film was full of eye candy and it sported a surprisingly likable cast. I doubt anybody at the time thought the movie would grow into a franchise […]

Focus : Movie Review

From the famous writer/director duo of “Bad Santa”, “I Love You Phillip Morris” and “Crazy, Stupid Love”, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa make a somewhat disappointing caper feature that follows just about every typical con-artist outline. Nicky (Will Smith) is a suave con-man, channeling a classic Cary Grant, as he works with a team of […]

Inherent Vice Movie Review

For me the movie Inherent Vice is a tale of two artists. First, there’s Joaquin Phoenix, an actor who probably does not get the credit he deserves in the mainstream, most likely due to his off screen persona, which can at best be described as eccentric. I’m guilty of this as well, for even though […]
