Movie Review: 'Dune'
"I saw this movie yesterday and I had to look up at least 75% of the characters’ names for that plot description, and I don’t just mean for spelling."
Movie Review: 'Cry Macho'
Clint Eastwood directs and stars as Michael Milo, a once-prominent Texas rodeo star now ravaged by age, addiction, and loss.
Movie Review: "Malignant"
“Malignant” had me laughing harder than any movie in the last two years, though I’m not sure it was always going for laughs
Movie Review: 'Candyman'
"I wonder: between the shadow puppets and a handful of Milky Ways, which will cause me to lose more sleep at night?"
Movie Review: 'Old'
"There’s a lot of hitting and missing with Shyamalan’s ideas, and I can see some people thinking it misses more than it hits, but I think it’s about equal."
Movie Review: 'Black Widow'
"This movie isn’t going to turn anybody away from the MCU, but the franchise has, and hopefully will continue to have, many better entries"
Movie Review: 'Those Who Wish Me Dead'
'The movie’s advertising emphasizes fire, specifically one the assassins start as a diversion from their trail of murders. This is actually a very small part of the movie.'
Movie Review: 'Voyagers'
"I’d say to stay away from “Voyagers,” but since the movie hasn’t risen above fifth place at the box office since it opened, it doesn’t seem people need to be told that."
Movie Review: 'Godzilla Vs. Kong'
Bob Garver: "Hopefully we have bigger numbers from better movies on the horizon, but this movie is serviceable as a blockbuster for now"
Movie Review: 'Nobody'
Author's Note: This review is coming from a person who loves a good violent action movie. If the genre isn’t for you, this movie isn’t for you.
Movie Review: 'News Of The World'
"If this movie looks like your cup of tea, then you’ll probably enjoy it, and if it doesn’t, you’ll still probably find something to appreciate even if it mostly feels like a slog"
Movie Review: 'The Croods: A New Age'
"I’ll recommend going to see The Croods: A New Age (following all safety protocols, of course) and checking your opinion against mine to see if you too think this movie is a piece of well-animated junk"
Movie Review: 'Kajillionaire'
NOTE: Surprisingly, my computer’s spell-check has no problem with the word “Kajillionaire.” It sounds made-up, but apparently it’s recognized.
Movie Review: 'Freaky'
I wish this movie had been called “Freaky Friday the 13th.” The film is a cross between “Freaky Friday” and “Friday the 13th.”
Movie Review: 'Come Play'
"Come Play” finds itself in the plum position of being the hottest new theatrical horror release of Halloween 2020
