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 […]

Isle Of Dogs Movie Review

Isle Of Dogs: For his next foray into stop-animation, director Wes Anderson calls upon some of his usual cast of collaborators for his Japanese inspired film, Isle of Dogs. Since his venture into the medium in 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox, Anderson has worked on creating an original story inspired by dogs and Japanese cinematic masterminds […]

Ready Player One Movie Review

Ready Player One Movie Review: If you haven’t read Ernest Cline’s 2011 immersive novel Ready Player One, you may not understand why it’s so gratifying as a fan that its adaptation fell into the hands of Stephen Spielberg. The entire time I read the book I considered how immense and complicated of a process it […]

Pacific Rim: Uprising Movie Review

Pacific Rim: Uprising: When giant robots and giant aliens battle on the big screen everyone wins, right? Well, maybe not the unlucky suckers who happen to live in the cities playing host to the fight. And maybe not anyone who sat through any of the Transformers movies (thanks for nothing, Michael Bay). Pacific Rim: Uprising […]

Tomb Raider 2018 Movie Review

Tomb Raider 2018: Like other action heroes before her such as Bond, Bourne, and Lisbeth Salander (I think she deserves to be thrown in here), Lara Croft receives the additional adaptation treatment 17 years after the last time we saw the heroine on the big screen. Now portrayed by Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, Croft is […]

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 […]

Game Night: Movie Review

Directing duo, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, return for the first time since their debut feature film, Vacation, released nearly three years ago. While Vacation was received very poorly by fans and critics, that should not deter audiences from seeing their new film, Game Night. After a not-so-great marketing campaign, I think most people […]

Battle of the Reviews: Black Panther

After directing Fruitvale Station, Creed and now, Black Panther, Ryan Coogler has established himself as one of the very best directors of our era. In Black Panther, he created a breathtakingly beautiful world that was as vibrant as it was authentic. I am by no means an expert in African culture, however, it appears as […]
