"The Predator"- Movie Review Of all the creatures that make up the movie alien hall of fame, the Predator is by far my personal favorite (with H.R. Giger's Alien coming in at a close second). What's not to love about it? It's fast, it's strong, it's intelligent, it's a ruthless sport-hunter with an awesome and... Continue Reading →

"The Nun"- Movie Review In a world dominated by franchises, The Conjuring Universe has proven to be one of the more successful ones out there. Sure, not every film has hit bulls-eye, but so far the good has largely outweighed the bad. And it's no surprise the series has started putting time and energy into spin-offs... Continue Reading →

"The Meg"- Movie Review Imagine this: You're seven years old. You've been taking swimming lessons for a while now. You're learning the breaststroke, the backstroke, the butterfly, and everything's going great. What you know about the ocean comes from what you've seen in The Little Mermaid and The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island (big big water!).... Continue Reading →

"BlacKkKlansman" Movie Review To be honest, I’m not too familiar with Spike Lee’s work. The list of ones I’ve seen barely takes up space on a sticky note. Malcolm X- which funny enough stars BlacKkKlansman lead John David Washington’s father, Denzel Washington- is overly long but nonetheless a stunning autobiography of one of America’s most...

"Christopher Robin"- Movie Review It's virtually impossible to hate Winnie the Pooh. If you do, odds are you don't have a soul. Granted, the stories of Winnie the Pooh and his adventures in the Hundred-Acre Wood aren't for everyone, though there's no denying the lasting impression they make on people's lives, mine included. I adore... Continue Reading →

"Mission: Impossible- Fallout"- Movie Review Of all the spy movie franchises out there, Mission: Impossible is probably my favorite. The fourth installment, Ghost Protocol, was my introduction to the series and I absolutely loved it, though I never saw the others until recently when I binged them in preparation for MI: 6. My thoughts on each? The first is... Continue Reading →

"Sorry to Bother You"- Movie Review We hear the argument constantly: Hollywood has nothing original to offer anymore! All we get are remakes and reboots and sequels! As tedious as the debate is, I tend to agree. Hollywood is playing it safe. The industry would rather continue to bank on people's nostalgia and stick to... Continue Reading →

"Three Identical Strangers"- Movie Review As I mentioned in my review for Won't You Be My Neighbor?, I'm not usually one for seeing documentaries in theaters unless it's part of a film festival. Not that I've never been interested. Normally the case is either a) documentaries- the really good ones at least- rarely come to where... Continue Reading →

"Ant-Man and the Wasp"- Movie Review Director Peyton Reed brings the gang back together for this sequel to the 2015 hit Ant-Man. Set just after the events of the third Captain America movie, the film kicks off with Scott Lang stuck under house arrest. Between this, weekend visits with his daughter (played by the maddeningly adorable Abby... Continue Reading →
