The Northman Review: A Big Overbloated Epic That Fails To Connect

Robert Eggers may have a solid indy fanbase but The Northman bites off far more than it can chew to be the big budget epic that it wants to be.  … More The Northman Review: A Big Overbloated Epic That Fails To Connect

The Upside Review/Discussion (The Media’s Attempted Sabotage Of The Film)

Critics have a hard enough time these days maintaining credibility in the face of being called shills for certain studios or even being criticized for being the wrong race and gender to review a movie in the first place. Fair or unfair, it is a bad look for the industry to turn into attack dogs that serve push the agenda of ideologues and I’m saying this as an openly biased critic. Is The Upside a great film? No, but it is a very good one but if you are waiting for mainstream critics to tell you that, you may be dealing with people who decided to sink the movie before it ever had a chance. … More The Upside Review/Discussion (The Media’s Attempted Sabotage Of The Film)

Aquaman Review: The Best DCEU Film To Date Still Has Its Issues

It feels like the DC Extended Universe is falling apart at the seams over the last year or so. Justice League bombed at the box office, Ben Affleck is out as Batman, Henry Cavill out as Superman, Wonder Woman 1984’s release pushed back to 2020, Ezra Miller still has a job as Barry Allen, and God knows what’s happening to The Joker right now. Things don’t look particularly great for the DC film franchise, but there is hope. People still like Jason Momoa and Warner Bros haven’t screwed that up yet. … More Aquaman Review: The Best DCEU Film To Date Still Has Its Issues

The Beguiled (2017) Review

This is a great commercial for the 1971 film for those who haven’t seen it and if you have seen it, then you have pretty much already watched this film down to the scene with the pet turtle. If you are a fan of Southern Gothic, I definitely recommend this one to you. The Beguiled is worth a watch, especially for guys because playing with repressed sexuality will 9/10 burn you in the end. … More The Beguiled (2017) Review

Lion (Guest Review Ft. Movie Man Jackson)

It may be the editing, which isn’t perfect in the first half, but adequate. In the second half, elapsed time isn’t clearly defined, and some character introductions/relationships/reintroductions are a little clunky as a result. Chemistry between Patel and Rooney Mara is average. The scenes they share extensively together (not a ton) is when Lion becomes a tad clichéd and its pace compromised

But even with that, Lion does a lot more to be legitimately emotional than the average solely Oscar-centric movie. In simplicity, a moving tale is found. … More Lion (Guest Review Ft. Movie Man Jackson)
