Before they’re officially a part of the … Continue reading I Choose ‘Not’ | ‘Ready or Not’ Review

Moving Past Nostalgia | ‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’ Review

Revival explores abundance of reboots Reboots have been quite the rage this past decade; while nothing new to entertainment, the 2010s have been abundant with reboots and revivals of relics from the 80s and 90s. Shows like “Fuller House” and “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” have found home not only in the hearts of nostalgic fans, but also on Netflix. And now, the … Continue reading Moving Past Nostalgia | ‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’ Review

Best of 2019… So Far | Staff Picks

With 2019 more than half way over, we decided to select our best movies and video games picks of 2019… so far. Best Movies ‘Toy Story 4’ Full review “Toy Story 4” is a film no one asked for and could’ve easily been a soulless sequel in the same vein as “Cars 2” and “The Incredibles 2,” but it managed to tell a story unique … Continue reading Best of 2019… So Far | Staff Picks

Not So Good | ‘Good Boys’ Review

In my 2019 Movie Catch-Up post, I ragged on how reviewers just don’t seem to like comedies these days, most notably in the cases of “Stuber” and “Shaft,” two superb comedies that got the short end of the aggregate stick. Gene Stupnitsky’s adolescent comedy “Good Boys” is the complete opposite, sitting atop an 80 percent fresh Rotten Tomatoes score that I feel like is wholly … Continue reading Not So Good | ‘Good Boys’ Review

Girl-fellas | ‘The Kitchen’ Review

Gangster movies are to modern cinema what Westerns were in early Hollywood. A genre defined by strong men who are willing to get their hands dirty for money, loyalty, and family. And just like how Westerns have opened themselves to re-interpretation and subversion, the gangster movie genre gets a new spin with Andrea Berloff’s “The Kitchen.” Set in Hell’s Kitchen during the 1970s, the movie … Continue reading Girl-fellas | ‘The Kitchen’ Review

Mitch’s 2019 Movie Catch-Up Part 1 | Reviews In Brief

2019 was a big year for movies, and was one where I saw myself going less and less to the theaters and relying more on streaming services like Netflix.  It’s also been a year where I returned to review writing, albeit not every movie I saw warranted a full review. Thus, this is where this post comes in! Here is a little roundup of all … Continue reading Mitch’s 2019 Movie Catch-Up Part 1 | Reviews In Brief

It’s Halloween in August | ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ (2019) Review

Halloween seems to be coming earlier and earlier every year, or rather, it’s always with us, as horror films are regularly released throughout the year. Still, not all horror films are strictly Halloween films, but I do roll my eyes when I see a film so fit for October like this year’s “Scary Stories to Tell in The Dark” released in August, or the beginning … Continue reading It’s Halloween in August | ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ (2019) Review

Cult Fiction | ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Review

The early nineties introduced audiences to three of the most influential directors in Hollywood; Kevin Smith, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino. Of the novel visionaries, none of them have been more influential than Tarantino. With a filmography consisting of “Pulp Fiction”, “Kill Bill”, and “Django Unchained”, Tarantino shows homage to old films that shape his canvas. This is especially the case in his latest film, … Continue reading Cult Fiction | ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Review

A Three-Star Stuber Ride | ‘Stuber’ Review

There’s no such thing as a bad movie concept, just bad execution. People can complain about the ideas of bad movies, but without any risks, some of the greatest movies wouldn’t have been made. There would be no Star Wars, none of the Disney library would have had the chance to be loved worldwide, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe would just be a pipe dream … Continue reading A Three-Star Stuber Ride | ‘Stuber’ Review

I Saw a Film Today, Oh Boy | ‘Yesterday’ Review

The Beatles, the worldwide phenomenon from Liverpool. Breaking into popularity in the 1960’s, their music has stood the test of time. But what would the world be like if the Beatles’ music never existed? Well, that’s what Director Danny Boyle and writer Richard Curtis answers that question in the movie Yesterday.
