  • One Night in Miami Review

    2020 gave us several powerful movies about the black experience, and few were more thought-provoking than One Night in Miami.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bullet Train Review

    While not as game-changing as John Wick or as consistently hilarious as Deadpool 2, Bullet Train beams with the kinetic energy and sly personality we’ve come to anticipate from Leitch.

    Thor: Love and Thunder might not be Ragnarok, but it does solidify Waititi as the most fitting director for this character.

  • Crimes of the Future Review

    Crimes of the Future has Cronenberg’s surreal stamp, but it lacks interesting enough characters and ideas to justify its sluggish pace or underwhelming resolution.

    How can someone call themselves a fan of Cronenberg and then be at a loss as to what he's doing here? Crimes of the Future not only continues his decade-long fascination with the human body and its complicated relationship with technology, sex and violence, but it finds Cronenberg at his most political, self-reflexive and comedic. The film is filled with fascinating ideas and images and this review refuses to engage with any of them. It's particularly telling that the one image the reviewer highlights (the ear-covered man) is mocked by the characters in the movie for being too obvious and on the nose. But I guess the reviewer missed that. It's also mind-boggling to see Mortensen's physicality be compared to that of a man half his age when he is dragging his feet, coughing, crouching in corners and struggling to eat for the entire movie. What film did the reviewer even watch??? This is one of the worst reviews I've read in years. Watch the film again.

  • The Impact Review

    The Impact is more than just an innovative experiment, however. It’s a sometimes poignant and sometimes darkly humorous slice of life movie about the end of all life.
