Finally Having Time To Enjoy A Classic | “The Shawshank Redemption” Classic Movie Review

As someone who was born at the tail end of the millennial generation, I’ve had a lot of catching up to do when it comes to watching classic films, particularly in the last five years when I’ve had unfettered access to them thanks to the streaming revolution. “The Shawshank Redemption,” Frank Darabont’s masterful adaption of Stephen King’s 1982 novella “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption” is … Continue reading Finally Having Time To Enjoy A Classic | “The Shawshank Redemption” Classic Movie Review

Rogue Done: A Narcos Story  | "Narcos: Mexico" Season 2 Netflix Series Review

I’m a big fan of this show, mostly because of Wagner Moura’s masterful portrayal of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar in the first two seasons of the main “Narcos” series. Moura brought humanity to the monster that was Escobar, and it helped that he had perhaps the best supporting cast of any “Narcos” series.  I came into “Narcos: Mexico” knowing that it was essentially an … Continue reading Rogue Done: A Narcos Story  | "Narcos: Mexico" Season 2 Netflix Series Review

The "High School Musical" Trilogy Isn't Nearly As Terrible As I Remembered | "High School Musical" 1, 2 & 3 Retro Movie Reviews in Brief

With theaters closed and major releases delayed until who knows when, what we were planning to cover here at InReview got thrown right out the window. So expect a lot of streaming and retro reviews on this site. My girlfriend is staying with me for spring break. In fact, her college gave her an extended spring break, so we’ve spent a lot of time in … Continue reading The "High School Musical" Trilogy Isn't Nearly As Terrible As I Remembered | "High School Musical" 1, 2 & 3 Retro Movie Reviews in Brief

How The Coronavirus Might Affect The Entertainment Industry | Column from the Editor

COVID-19 is no one’s friend, as across the board, the fast-spreading virus has already caused major economic disruption and the entertainment industry in general stands to lose billions, if not trillions, of dollars, as popular professional sports leagues cancel their season, important conference like E3 are canceled, and prominent festivals like the Cannes Film Festival are thrown into uncertainty. For film, prominent companies like Disney … Continue reading How The Coronavirus Might Affect The Entertainment Industry | Column from the Editor

The Most Mark Wahlberg Film You’ll Ever See | “Spencer Confidential” Netflix Movie Review

Netflix has this inane ability to release the creative shackles on those who were chained by the creative limitations imposed upon them by traditional Hollywood studios, whether it be in the form of seeing a Michael Bay film in “6 Underground” in which he’s allowed to completely go off the rails, or a film where Martin Scorcese is allowed to tell a 3-hour mob epic … Continue reading The Most Mark Wahlberg Film You’ll Ever See | “Spencer Confidential” Netflix Movie Review

Ranking All 12 Star Wars Theatrical Films | Column from the Editor

A while ago, our film critic, Alex Stewart, ranked all 9 Star Wars Episodes. As a huge Star Wars geek, I wanted to go one step further: To rank all Star Wars films that premiered in the theater, which accounts for some 12 movies (don’t expect to find the Ewoks films or the “Star Wars Holiday Special.”). Without further ado, here’s my complete rankings:  12. Episode … Continue reading Ranking All 12 Star Wars Theatrical Films | Column from the Editor

Some Lovely Character Development | “Castlevania” Season 3 Netflix Series Review

The one complaint I have about Netflix’s “Castlevania” Seasons 1 and 2 is that they have the content of one season (they have 16 half-hour episodes combined, with Season 1 really feeling like a pilot at four episodes). That being said, when you put them together, you have a glorious bloodbath, full of memorable characters like series leads Trevor Belmont (Richard Armitage), an iconic monster … Continue reading Some Lovely Character Development | “Castlevania” Season 3 Netflix Series Review

Netflix Was Wrong To End This Show | “BoJack Horseman” Season 6 Part 2 Netflix Series Review

All good things must come to an end eventually, but BoJack Horseman didn’t necessarily need to. At least not yet. The financial workings of Netflix remains a mystery to many, as it is willing to greenlight both deserving projects that cost a little more than they should (like “The Irishman” and the “Dark Crystal” reboot), as well as an absolute sea of projects that go … Continue reading Netflix Was Wrong To End This Show | “BoJack Horseman” Season 6 Part 2 Netflix Series Review

Bring Out The Tissues | “Onward” Movie Review

The last 10 years have not been incredibly kind to Pixar, with 2015’s “Inside Out” and 2017’s “Coco” proving to be bright spots in what has otherwise been a decade of underwhelming Pixar sequels and original properties that just didn’t take off the way Pixar’s films did in the early 2000s. In 2018, I wrote a column speculating “Is Pixar in trouble?” theorizing that pressure … Continue reading Bring Out The Tissues | “Onward” Movie Review
