    Violent Night

    ★★★½

    'Violent Night' is an indigoferous, lambent action-comedy that is bedecked in the woolskin of a 'Die Hard' terrorist scenario. The inclusion of a walkie-talkie as a child's pipeline to the North Pole denizen is alopecoid indeed.

    David Harbour's Santa Clause is a tippling barfly Saint Nick but he isn't a surly malcontent like Billy Bob Thornton and he isn't wearily bedraggled like Mel Gibson in 'Fatman'. Harbour warmly gravitates towards the lapsed-idealism within the iconographic figure ("I forgot why I…

    SEASON 1 REVIEW-

    In light of Willis' destabilizing aphasia diagnosis, the temptation is that adminiculating with Travolta and director Chuck Russell would stratify this above a Maui vacation on a geezer-teaser budget. Alas, other than lush shots of the beach and…

    Jurassic World Dominion

    ★½

    ‘Jurassic World: Dominion' is a dreadfully underwritten, incurably stupefying trilogy capstone to the next phase in the dinosaur franchise. The kernel about mankind's cohabitation of Planet Earth with the lumbering relics is a nonstarter when Colin Trevorrow is more anaclitic on the overkeen, ridiculously burlesqued human villains like Soyona Santos (Dichen Lachman) who is impractically pret-a-porter in her blowsy white suit and Lewis Dodgson (Campbell Scott) who flails his arms with a enfant-terrible temper tantrum during the denouement.
