Kin (2018) - Movie ReviewBorn from the pages of a short story, bottle fed on the milk of science fiction, raised on a road trip, and nurtured in the loving bosom of family drama, the new movie Kin is a curious but frustrating conglomeration of many genres. Certainly an ambitious undertaking from filmmaking ...

Summer of 84 - Movie ReviewHaving lived there before, the suburbs are where the craziest of the crazy hide. You already suspect this.  I do, too.  Summer of 84, with a killer third act, is the confirmation we needed.  There’s a chance, after watching this flick, that you won’t be able to look at your  ...

Arizona (2018) - Movie ReviewArizona is about a man on the edge.  Set during the most recent housing market crash, this horror comedy  features Danny McBride as a pissed off victim of the subprime mortgage crisis.  Anyone expecting social commentary; however, will be disappointed.  Oh, there are ...

Down a Dark Hall - Movie ReviewNovelist Lois Duncan was way ahead of her time.  It is as if she had her finger on the pulse of all tomorrow’s youth, paving the way for the Young Adult movement in literature.  Seriously.  While everyone else was all Savannah Smiles-like, Duncan was pumping out ...

The Happytime MurdersThere’s a fairly early scene in The Happytime Murders that sets the twisted tone for what’s to follow. It takes place in a seedy area of Los Angeles in an even seedier sex shop where we witness – through a pulled back curtain into a darkened back room – an octopus violently  ...

Papillon (2018) - Movie ReviewThere is a line of dialogue in Papillon in which the prison warden says to his titular captive immediately upon opening the cell door at the conclusion of the prisoner's five-year stint in solitary confinement, "Not many make it five years in here,” says the ...

Dog Days (2018) - Movie ReviewWith a paper thin plot, erratic tone, and humor that rarely elicits so much as a slight chuckle, Dog Days, the latest from TV funnyman Ken Marino, is a film that should not work. But it does. Thanks to the furry faces, sloppy tongues, and wagging tails of its canine stars ...

The Meg (2018) - Movie ReviewThe end of the summer season is upon us, Moviegoers.  What better way to celebrate the last hurrah of silliness then with a mega-sized shark causing all sorts of chaos at the cinema?  True, The Meg – about a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark known as the Megalodon ...

BlacKkKlansman (2018) - Movie ReviewSpike Lee follows up his keenly poignant comedy/drama/musical Chi-Raq with BlacKkKlansman, another film that shares the same frustratingly uneven tone and disjointed structure yet always manages to slap its intended target squarely upside the head. And that target is ...

The Spy Who Dumped Me - Movie ReviewIn Hollywood they say that timing is everything. And in the case of The Spy Who Dumped Me, the timing – whether intentional or otherwise – couldn’t have been any worse. The film releases on the heels of the Tom Cruise action juggernaut, Mission: Impossible – Fallout ...
