Let Arnold Retire Already | ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Movie Review

The Terminator franchise has become the equivalent of coming back to an abusive relationship, hoping things will change and be as good as they were in the beginning of the relationship, only to have them display the same toxic behavior that pushed you away in the first place. It began with “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” (2003), when Director Jonathan Mostow filled in for … Continue reading Let Arnold Retire Already | ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Movie Review

Days of Future Present | ‘House of X’/’Powers of X’ Comic Book Review

I’ve had an on and off again relationship with the X-Men since Brian Micheal Bendis took up the main series and wrote … Continue reading Days of Future Present | ‘House of X’/’Powers of X’ Comic Book Review

Brad Pitt Meets his Space Dad | ‘Ad Astra’ Review

Brad Pitt goes to space and meets his space dad, who has been missing for decades. That’s basically James Gray’s “Ad Astra” in a nutshell.  In the near future, Major Roy McBride (Pitt), son of pioneering astronaut H.

A 3-Hour Movie | ‘IT Chapter 2’ Review

Man, did this movie not have to be 3 hours long. I mean really, it did not need to be 3 hours long. “It Chapter 2” is essentially “Retcon: The Movie.” The film follows older versions of the 2017 “It” kids; James McAvoy plays team leader turned famous author Bill Denbrough; Jessica Chastain plays the friend group’s one girl, Beverly Marsh; Bill Hader plays the … Continue reading A 3-Hour Movie | ‘IT Chapter 2’ Review

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
