    Just as the sun rarely sets in this place, Midsommar wears its audience down like they’ve been strapped under a giant heat lamp.

  • Spider-Man: Far from Home Review

    After the marathon that was Avengers: Endgame, it’s only appropriate that the following addition to the MCU would be a laidback vacation. At least that’s what Peter Parker is looking for in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

    Like Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a horror picture that barely gets away with a PG-13 rating.

    The first Downton Abbey had its charms, but it lacked genuine stakes. Granted, the Downton Abbey series wasn’t always conflict-heavy, but it did explore the Titanic’s sinking, World War I, and death. And what was the main conflict in the movie? Will the servants get to wait on the King and Queen? There was a simplistic appeal, but the premise just as easily could’ve worked as a TV episode. Downton Abbey: A New Era feels worthier of cinema. That’s partly because it’s about…

    Moonfall is the most preposterous movie that Roland Emmerich has ever made. Remember, this is the same director who destroyed an alien army with a computer virus and Randy Quaid’s ace flying skills. He also had global warming usher in a new ice age over a few days. Then just when we thought Emmerich had topped himself, he ended the world in 2012. As we all now know, that wouldn’t happen until 2020. Even outside of the disaster genre, Shakespeare was outed as a fraud in Emmerich’s Anonymous….
