  • The Black Phone

    The Black Phone

    ★★★★

    Hope is a remarkable thing. Even a flicker of it, appearing right when you most need it, can mean everything. In that flicker is a possibility and if you hold onto that possibility, it can become a roaring flame untempered by the darkest hopelessness around it.

    'The Black Phone', bleak as it appears to be, is every bit a fiercely hopeful film. Shrouded in menace and continually reminiscent of the modern horrors endured by children in places where their safety…

    Inventing Anna

    ★★★★

    Anna Delvey was an inevitability.

    Every follow, "like", and vanity-driven action that preceded her ascent to the top of the glitterati was going to result in Anna. We asked for her and she did not disappoint.

    Shonda Rhimes's latest Netflix confection revels in that delirious feast of "we did this" mania and Julia Garner's immediately iconic portrayal of the enigmatic protagonist is the perfect medium to unleash Delvey's chaotic, bingeable energy. And everything Anna does is indeed the picture of…

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I originally blind-bought this movie on DVD way back when it released simply based on my adoration of Stephen King. I remember thoroughly liking it at the time up until its now infamous pitch black dark ending. That buzzkill downer was enough to make my teenage mind resolve to never watch it again.

    Flash-forward fifteen years and all it took was a more developed mind and an impulse "play" on the first thing Netflix offered up for me to finally…

    C'mon C'mon

    ★★½

    Pardon the Joker reference but this is what happens when an insufferable child character meets an insipid screenplay. Joaquin is first rate all the way through but even he couldn't make me stop longing for this stretched out 15-minute short to end.

    Vampires vs. the Bronx

    ★★★½

    Wholesome Latino and Black representation in a horror film. We love to see it!

    Vampires vs. the Bronx is much more than the latest Netflix flavor of the week. In it's modest way, this mainstream-friendly vamp-hunting jaunt is a big deal, not only because it is led by a trio of adorable kids who happen to be people of color, but because it also manages to imbue a dusty genre mainstay with a vitally urgent message that is very much…

    Psycho Goreman

    ★★

    Folks, meet the single most annoying character of the 21st century. No, I'm not referring to the titular monster but to his captor, a little girl who will make you beg for the sweet relief of total annihilation mere moments after meeting her. I'm calling it now, everyone else can go home. Mimi is the most obnoxiously spoiled brat you'll ever know and boy does she spoil what could've been silly divertive fun. She is the bane of anyone who…
