Old Man Review: Stephen Lang Carries An Amazing Barebones Character Driven Thriller

I was going to pass on this film initially due to the trailer looking like a cheap knockoff of 2016’s Don’t Breathe, even going as far as to cast Stephen Lang as the lead for the film…Boy was I wrong.

Pearl (2022) Review: A Wonderful Character Study Of One Crazy Hellcat

I’ve never been much of a fan of Mia Goth up to this point. Six years later and I’m still recovering from the trauma of having to sit through “A Cure For Wellness” which tried to provide style over substance and forgot both.

Barbarian (2022) Review: Turning Your Brain Off Won’t Help

Note to self: Never take another film recommendation from Sonny Bunch. There’s a reason that the only film anyone is watching right now is Top Gun: Maverick and that’s because every other film in movie theaters sucks.
