Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood Review

Last October, I wrote about Drew Goddard's Bad Times at the El Royale, his second film in the director's chair. In it, I explain how the film has Quentin Tarantino's DNA all over it, with some of the less ideal qualities removed.. Most notably, Goddard's script does not rely on using the n-word to portray the…

Us Review

In 2017, after the success of his debut screenplay Get Out (which went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay), Jordan Peele was quoted as saying that he has "four other social thrillers that [he] want[s] to unveil in the next decade," clarifying that "the best and scariest monsters in the world are human…

Captain Marvel Review

After almost 11 years and 20 previous films, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) finally gave a female superhero a standalone film, with Academy Award winner Brie Larson making her debut as the incredibly powerful Carol Danvers, known as Captain Marvel. Built up during the end credits of the appropriately bleak Infinity War as the hero who…

Glass Review

Hey, y'all! I'm back! I know it's been a month since I've posted anything, let alone the weekly movie trailers post (those are a lot of work, and I've been busy in the real world, so I haven't gotten around to them. I'll have to see how behind I really am before deciding how I'm…

Venom “Review”

I keep trying to write a genuine review for this movie but am having the hardest time. Partially because this movie does not really earn any real critique or discussion. Partially because the review over at Birth Movies Death does a much better job of discussing what doesn’t work and what does (mostly unintentionally) work…

Mission Impossible: Fallout Review

Mission: Impossible is the best operating franchise, and it is not particularly close. If Star Wars was only doing the episodic Skywalker Saga, and if the prequels didn't exist, then maybe the debate would be a bit more interesting, but with Rogue One  and Solo not quite living up to what that franchise should be (or, if it's the other way…

Sorry To Bother You Review

Upon its release, Sorry To Bother You has been described by several major review sources (including The BBC and The Guardian) as this year’s Get Out. Sorry To Bother You is not this year’s Get Out. Yes, both films are biting satires, one utilizing the horror genre to expose the subtle and not-so-subtle ways that…

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again Review

In 2008, two of the five worldwide highest grossing movies of the year came out on the same date in July (the 18th, to be exact). Coming in at number one that year, The Dark Knight, arguably changed the movie world for good. Maybe not for the better, but the effect it had certainly seems…
