Frozen II

VERDICT A sequel of epic moments that doesn’t string together to be anything more than it is – a series of moments. Beautiful animation aside, the peaks are high but the valleys are deep. Kids will undoubtedly enjoy, but I would wait for the Tuesday cheap tickets. REVIEW I miss the trailer. Elsa running into […]

Parasite

VERDICT Filmmaker Bong Joon-ho outdid himself with every aspect of this movie. This commentary on greed and class introduces a nuance to disadvantage that recent social commentaries masked in super villain movies (cough cough, Joker) lacked. The plot took many unpredictable twists and turns and did so with incredible imagery that often spoke for itself. […]

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

VERDICT With the leads split up and the plot meandering between more interesting throw away concepts, the sequel is incapable of delivering what the first movie did. Catch it on streaming only if you loved the first one. REVIEW Somewhere in Mistress of Evil, buried so deep down that you can barely see it, is […]

Gemini Man

VERDICT Depending on where you’re sitting, the admittedly-incredible “de-aging” tech used with Will Smith is either game changing or apocalyptic. That’s all there really is to talk about with this quagmire of a film. I’m sure there are worse ways to spend 2 hours than if you happen to catch it on streaming or a […]

The Best 12 Films of 2018

With 2018 wrapping up, it’s time to reflect back on another year at the movies. Marvel celebrated 10 years of pop culture dominance. We got another Star War. There was a movie about Aquaman, and Julie Andrews was in it. Some movies, like Sorry to Bother You, pushed the boundaries of filmmaking and storytelling. Others were […]

Creed II

VERDICT It was always going to be nearly impossible to follow up on the lightning strike that was Creed. The sequel may not pack quite the same punch, but the performances and tried-and-true formula still make for an incredible time. Make sure you’ve seen the first film, and then buy the ticket. REVIEW Following up on 2015’s Creed seemed […]
