    SERENITY (2019)

    Serenity, the sophomore directorial effort from screenwriter Steven Knight, is, by all accounts of publicity and talent, a twisted, elegantly trashy neo-noir. Trailers lead you to believe that Matthew McConaughey is being cajoled into a Body Heat-esque plot by lost lover Anne Hathaway to off her rich, abusive husband...
  • The House That Jack Built 4

    The House That Jack Built

    The House That Jack Built is incredibly fun. The hardcore arthouse crowd will guffaw at finding pleasure in Lars von Trier movies instead of taking them super serious. But, there’s something to watching a serial killer take years to get good at his passion. Watching as this middle of...
  • Roma (2018) 7

    Roma (2018)

    Roma is the kind of movie that I didn’t know I wanted to see in 2018. So far, we’ve delved into films about futility and losing as recurring themes in 2018. Shot in glorious black and white, the lack of detail forces you to examine what is present on...

    Surfer: Teen Confronts Fear proves that 2018 was amazing

    “So much of what you consume when you get older is about accommodation. I have less time, less tolerance for bullshit, more interest in good taste, more confidence in my own good judgment.” – Nick Hornby “Songbook” Surfer: Teen Confronts Fear is why I don’t trust Film Twitter. I...

    Bad Times at the El Royale

    Bad Times at the El Royale had such an amazing trailer. The impact it made on audiences early last summer made me think that we were going to have a major cult hit on our hands. Then, it hit and played a little too long. Fans of Goddard digged...
  • Shoplifters (2018) 19

    Shoplifters (2018)

    Shoplifters is the kind of crime story that I love. Not everything needs to be a serious mob tale or a caustic lesson about psychos tearing apart the land. Sometimes, movies can tackle the small crimes that litter a life. Whether it’s shoplifting, direct fraud or quick grabs…these are...
  • Can You Ever Forgive Me? 22

    Can You Ever Forgive Me?

    Can You Ever Forgive Me? was a welcome discovery. I’ve been a fan of Melissa McCarthy for years, but her last few films have been dreck. However, I never expected a serious look at the Lee Israel scandal to be a big deal. The memoir was a medium level...
  • Glass

    Glass (2019)

    Glass is the third leg of Shyamalan’s superhero trilogy. While many haven’t been onboard the entire time, I have to admit that M. Night pulled it off. Sure, it took two studios and nearly twenty years…but it works. Does it pay off the expectations of those trained on DCEU...
  • A Star is Born (2018) 27

    A Star is Born (2018)

    A Star is Born has been told so many times that it’s almost becoming a generational right of passage. It doesn’t matter the entertainment venue, as some young woman is always trying to rise with the help of a veteran male. You can almost feel the vocal minority of...
