The Mule Review: Eastwood Redeems Himself In Gritty Celebration Of Family

Earlier this year, Clint Eastwood wrote and directed a film starring three young heroes who stopped a terrorist attack in France called The 15:17 to Paris. Unfortunately, this gamble did not pay off as the movie with amateur actors bombed critically and didn’t reach the heights that Eastwood set for the film. Ten months later, Eastwood has a chance at redemption with a film called The Mule and Eastwood does not flub his second chance. … More The Mule Review: Eastwood Redeems Himself In Gritty Celebration Of Family

Peppermint Review: A Female Led Action Flick That Isn’t Insulting To The Viewer

The future is female…that is unless that future involves guns, cartels, and vigilante justice. Most of you should remember the media’s meltdown over the film Death Wish that starred Bruce Willis earlier this year. A film that was savaged as racist, alt-right, problematic, and a Fox News wet dream by progressive critics, so it is interesting that a film starring Jennifer Garner with almost the same premise gets to fly completely under the radar. It is also interesting that members of the ‘Punch Nazis’ crowd have such a problem with on-screen vigilantes or at least the ones they don’t approve of. … More Peppermint Review: A Female Led Action Flick That Isn’t Insulting To The Viewer

He wrote my favorite film of 2015 Sicario, he wrote one of my favorite films of 2016 Hell or High Water, and now he has written my favorite film of the year thus far Sicario: Day of the Soldado. … More Sicario Day Of The Soldado Review: A Movie On Par With The First

Superfly (2018) Review: A Stupid, Insulting Window At Black Culture

This film is the representation of everything that black people try to distance themselves from, only to be reinforced by other black people. Hip Hop culture that sees this type of life as realistic and something to be glorified. Where criminals are portrayed as the good guys, the law is portrayed as the bad guys, and the American Dream is dumbed down to naked women, piles of cash, and a celebration of excess. … More Superfly (2018) Review: A Stupid, Insulting Window At Black Culture
