Beverly Hills Cop Trilogy

The heat is BACK on!

A Star is Born (2018) - Movie ReviewThroughout A Star is Born, Bradley Cooper’s character growls out the lyrics “Maybe it’s time to let the old ways die” with a crooning intimacy that lays the familiar groundwork for what’s at play in his film about two stars passing in the night; one fading away, the other  ...

The Lighthouse (2019)Watching wickie Ephraim Winslow, who is already having visions of mermaids and tentacled monsters, fly into a momentary fit of rage, grab a one-eyed seagull, and then beat it religiously against a cistern until it is beyond dead might be one of the most memorable scenes in The Lighthouse, a  ...

First Man (2018) - Movie ReviewPerhaps the only task more difficult than putting a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth is making an interesting film about the rather uninteresting man who first set foot on the lunar surface.

Widows - Movie ReviewIn film, mass audience appeal and brains rarely ever go together. Just ask Paul Blart. Yet, with his heist thriller Widows, filmmaker Steve McQueen proves that it is actually possible to make an intelligent film that is also appealing to a wide audience ...

Paganini Horror

Satanism and switchblade violins make quite the combination in this blast from the past! Luigi Cozzi’s Paganini Horror probably shouldn’t exist.  Sure, sure, I mean, the film does have some merit thanks to its wicked premise, but its execution - amounting to a bunch of screaming (mostly) female rock and  ...

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween - Blu-rayHollywood used to make fun movies like this one all of the time. They stopped when the 1990s ran up on us.

Teen Titans

Teen Titans, GO!  The pseudo-anime style.  The jokes.  And, man, the storylines.  Teen Titans has it all!

Mid90s - Movie Review

There’s no grand message in Mid90s, the heartfelt new film written and directed by actor Jonah Hill who takes his first turn at bat behind the camera. And there’s really not much of a story either. This sincere little coming of age film is perfectly content to simply sit back and ...

The Peanut Butter SolutionAnd this is why you do NOT overdo it with peanut butter.  Thank God we can all learn from Michael’s (Matthew Mackay) messy misadventures with a lot of gooey crap and way too much peanut butter.  If David Lynch made a children’s movie, it is no stretch of the imagination to suggest that it  ...

AXL - Blu-ray ReviewOnce again, I do NOT get the critical backlash against this Amblin-esque tale of a boy and his dog.  A-X-L rocks.  I mean, for those teens out there that are forever the outcast or picked on by the assholes of the world out there then this movie   ...

Robocop (1987)

“Dead or alive, you are coming with me.” When I first heard those words coming out from the lips of RoboCop (Peter Weller), I was hooked.  Instantly.  There was no looking back for this fat kid: RoboCop, making its debut in 1987, would be my summertime jam.  The film might have ...
