    THE MIDDLE 5 OF 2016: ROGUE ONE

    ROGUE ONE REVIEWED “Rogue One” is a trivial movie that made $400 million dollars in America. Somewhere between being floored by the use of Vader in the film and trying to comprehend the brutal assault on Scarif, the triviality becomes apparent. Jyn Erso exists to die. The same goes...

    THE MIDDLE 5 OF 2016: PETE’S DRAGON

    PETE’S DRAGON REVIEWED “Pete’s Dragon” is not the follow-up film I expected from the guy that directed “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”. Then, I hear he’s helming the Peter Pan revamp and I wonder why Disney is going out of their way to turn a promising indie director into the...
