Stillwater Review: Matt Damon Stars in the Tom McCarthy Film

For nearly twenty years, Participant Media has been producing quality films that have been socially relevant while also striving to entertain and educate. Directors like Steven Soderbergh, Steven Spielberg, Ana DuVernay, and Stillwater’s Tom McCarthy, under the Participant banner, have found award-winning success with films that feel relevant and urgent, but those filmmakers also know …

Jungle Cruise Review: Disney’s Big Screen Adaptation

Why be one movie when you can be twelve? Who cares if it makes sense; just stuff them all in there. Stick Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Mummy, The African Queen, Pirates of the Caribbean, and a bunch of other movies in a blender, and there you have it. Therein lies the problem with …

The Green Knight Review: David Lowery’s Epic Fantasy Adventure

The Quest is one of the most well established story tropes in fiction, going all the way back to Chaucer and The Canterbury Tales, and even further. It is not the destination, but the journey that guides and dictates the story, as a wanderer learns of their destiny and their place in the world. All …

Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins Review

Franchise movies with the word origins in the title don’t have the best track record of quality, but that doesn’t stop studios from making them; case in point, Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins, which promises to tell the backstory of the fan favorite character from the GI Joe animated series and Hasbro toy line. When …

Black Widow Movie Review: One of the Better MCU Entries

Marvel Studios can call Black Widow a Phase IV movie in their Cinematic Universe if they want, but with the exception of the obligatory post-credit scene, this movie is Phase III all the way. You could slot Black Widow right after Captain America: Civil War or right after Doctor Strange, and it would fit perfectly. …

The Forever Purge Review: The Rules Are Broken

It started out with a pretty simple idea, right? Create one night a year where everyone can do whatever they want in order to blow off their worst impulses so that they will live as peaceable law-abiding citizens the rest of the year. What could go wrong? Obviously, quite a lot and over its various …

Black Widow Review: This Should Have Happened Years Ago

This Black Widow review should have been written a very long time ago, and I’m not talking about the pandemic-delayed release of the film. The character and Scarlett Johansson deserved this film long ago. Whatever Marvel Studios’ reasons were for waiting until Captain Marvel for a female-fronted superhero film, it was the wrong decision. We …

F9 Review: Is the Latest Fast & Furious Film Up to Speed?

With F9 (and let’s face it, this series is just a harbinger of what is to come – all our movies will eventually become mere letters and numbers, like some strange form of Bingo. I am especially excited to see K6, A17, and W23 sometime in the near future) the Fast & Furious franchise has …

F9 Review: Here’s What We Thought of the Newest Fast & Furious Film

Once upon a time there was a group of underprivileged youth making ends meet by hijacking trucks to steal home electronics. Then one thing led to another until they one day found themselves racing a submarine on an ice flow in order to save the world. Granted the phrase ‘one thing led to another’ is doing …

Cruella Review: The Emmas Deliver the Fireworks

Stylish, calculating and beautiful with a pair of perfectly-pitched performances from its two leads, Cruella is an apt reflection of the life its heroine (Emma Stone) wants to lead but may be a decade too late in getting there. A prequel humanizing a villain from a 50-year-old film who literally has ‘devil’ as part of …

A Quiet Place Part II Review: The Abbott Family Is Back

When last we saw the Abbott family in A Quiet Place, Evelyn (Emily Blunt), Regan (Millicent Simmonds), and Marcus (Noah Jupe) had figured out a way to fight back against the aliens that had invaded Earth. While the blind aliens were able to track their prey through sound, excessive aural feedback caused them to open …

In the Heights Review: Beautiful and Wonderful

When it comes to my personal taste in musicals, I can sum it up in a phrase: “Go big or go home.” Movie musicals play with huge emotions, a sweeping grandeur of elegant conflict that can only be expressed through music, song, and dance; full of bodies moving in unison, and what begins as a …

Wrath of Man Review: Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham Reunite

When it comes to crime films, Guy Ritchie has a distinctive style. Most of them are about a group of British lads, who manage to stumble into a situation that could either make them a lot of money or get a lot of them killed, but through tenacity, bravado, and the occasional odd circumstance manage …

Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse Review

As Hollywood has been slowly overrun with more and more superhero films, many pages of digital ink have been spilled about how and why that has been so. A lot of those think pieces take the stance that the superhero film is childish, homogenous and risk averse as opposed to the adult-oriented entertainment studios used …

Mortal Kombat Review: A Blast, But Not a Flawless Victory

This Is Not a War Story Review: The Talia Lugacy Drama

This Is Not a War Story is lying right from the title card, and that’s okay. It is most definitely a war story, even if all of its stories of war take place off screen and in the past through occasional remanences. But if This Is Not a War Story is low on pyrotechnics, it’s …
