Yesterday (2019) - Movie ReviewA good movie always begins with a killer premise. And Yesterday, the new film from director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Richard Curtis has a great one. It takes on the idea of what our world would be like today if The Beatles never existed ...

GutterballsGutterballs is Canuxploitation at its filthiest. And I mean that in a good way.

BloodshotI’m just going to cut to the chase with this review.  Bloodshot is NOT a bad movie.  It might look familiar to comic book enthusiasts, but it is cool enough in its cinematic glide to deliver plenty of steely-eyed action scenes and incredible visuals thanks to first-time director David S.F. Wilson’s background in  ...

Ma (2019) - Blu-rayOctavia Spencer has been a staple in movies for years. She’s a talented, larger than life actor that almost always stands out in an ensemble, or kills it in a cameo.

The Golem (1920)The first horror icon of cinema has returned!  Or is The Golem, thanks to its design and its use of white magic, the first cinematic superhero?  I guess it comes down to your interpretation of the events in this legendary silent film.  But there is NO arguing of its influence.  From The Incredible Hulk  ...

John Wick: Chapter Three - ParabellumJohn Wick is one of those franchises that seemingly came out of nowhere. Keanu Reeves (deservedly) has maintained a level of currency through his lengthy and stellar career, but if we’re to be honest, his star was on the wane when he signed on to the ...

The Hustle (2019)The new comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson called The Hustle is an almost identical remake of the 1988 classic comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels which starred Michael Caine and Steve Martin - itself a remake of Marlon Brando’s Bedtime Story. I say “almost” because  ...

The Peace Killers (1971)

It’s the fuzz tones, man.  It’s all about the fuzz! What would you do if a producer came up to you and your cousin and said he’d give you $100,000 to make a movie, but it had to be a biker flick and it had to be R-rated?  You’d make that damn movie, of course.  Thus ...

Avengers: EndgameEleven years ago, I snorted derisively at the audacity of the newly minted Marvel Studios plans.
