"The Peanut Butter Falcon" & "Ad Astra"- Dual Review This week you're getting two in one! It's been a slow two weeks in regard to new releases, so I decided to use that window to check out two films that lay on opposite ends of the cinematic spectrum.   The first is The Peanut Butter Falcon,...

"Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark"- Movie Review Every generation has stories to tell. Sometimes they're grounded and sometimes they're outrageous. Often they're romantic, sad, patriotic, even humorous. But it seems like the kind of stories we love to tell the most are ones that keep us up at night. Case in point, "Scary... Continue Reading →

"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood"- Movie Review There are many ways to describe Quentin Tarantino's films: brash, sharp-tongued, witty, bloody, grandiose.

"Alita: Battle Angel"- Movie Review Based on Yukito Kishiro's manga series, Gunnm, this cyberpunk epic takes place in 2563, several years after a massive global war devastated the Earth. It stars Rose Salazar as Alita, a cyborg who was rescued from a garbage heap then brought back to life by Dr. Dyson Ido (Christoph Waltz). The two reside in... Continue Reading →

"Glass"- Movie Review To describe M. Night Shyamalan's career would be to describe the wild ups and downs of a winding rollercoaster.
