  • Midsommar Review

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

    Shazam! is not only one of the best DC movies, but one of the best modern comic book adaptations, which is saying a lot given how oversaturated the market is with superheroes.

  • The Call of the Wild Review

    The Gentlemen thankfully doesn’t feel like another studio-driven production that Ritchie just so happened to direct. It’s a pure Guy Ritchie movie in terms of dialogue, style, and performances

    You could say that the Boy Boys trilogy followed the same trajectory as the Men in Black movies. The first one was enjoyable, the second one sucked, and the third one is far more enjoyable that some might expect.
