  • 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.

  • Terminator 2: Judgement Day 3D Review

    To say Terminator 2: Judgement Day 3D is the best movie released this summer would be doing it down. It’s one of the best movies released all year and still one of the greatest action movies ever made. And they don’t make them like this anymore.

    In the seemingly never-ending procession of summer blockbusters that are now part of a gigantic, expanded universe that is all the rage right now, it’s the turn of the Robots in Disguise to join the party with the fifth installment in the wildly successful franchise based on the popular cartoon and toys from the 1980’s. It has now been a decade since the first film smashed its way onto the big screen and thus began the countless sequels we have enjoyed/endured in the years since. But…

  • Nope Review

    Jordan Peele’s Nope is a cinematic spectacle in the spirit of Spielberg’s Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Jurassic Park.

  • Jurassic World Dominion Review

    There’s enough in Jurassic World Dominion to hold your interest for two hours. That said, at 146 minutes, the film is about 25 minutes too long

  • 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.
