  • Black Widow

    Black Widow

    This is a standard fun Marvel film, if not top tier. The stunts are pretty fun, even if the action is oddly paced. It's a little odd that Scarlett Johansson gets so overshadowed in her own film, but Florence Pugh is so good that she easily runs away with it.

  • Wonder Woman 1984

    Wonder Woman 1984

    You know what? I don’t have a lot to say. This movie is fine. It’s not bad, it’s not great. There’s not a lot to it, but it’s entertaining and the actors help give it a certain charm. It perhaps over focuses on the villains, but that’s fairly standard for a superhero sequel and it’s pretty fun to watch Pedro Pascal chew the scenery. Yeah, not much to it.

  • Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

    Borat's second outing is, as one would expect, lacking in the uniqueness that made the first film so special. As effective as the original's ability to turn a mirror onto America's dark side was, it holds a little less weight in this day and age. Blame social media, which constantly shines that mirror on the dark spots every single second of every single day.

    Still, this film does manage to find some new ways to set itself apart from its…

  • Wendy


    I'd be lying if i said I wasn't a little disappointed with Wendy. Beasts of the Southern Wild was my favorite film of 2012, so perhaps I simply set my expectations too high.

None of the kids really stand out that much, aside from Peter and Wendy, and even Peter feels underdeveloped as a…

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Watching Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a frustrating, if not quite negative, experience. There's an unexpected sense of sloppyness to it, a far cry from the very well put-together Force Awakens and Last Jedi. It also largely shifts gears, eschewing much of the ongoing storylines of this trilogy in favor of telling a brand new story, one which had no buildup in its predecessors. This odd choice, one of several in the film, leads to a movie that…

  • Child's Play

    Child's Play

    I will say this, Child's Play is significantly stronger than I ever thought it would be. While I do not agree with this film's existence, especially when the creator of the original series is still doing projects with the character, it's clear that nobody involved in this remake was phoning it in. There's a clear sense of effort from the acting right down to the cinematography. It's also admirable that the film tries to be it's own thing. Though the…
