Revenge of the Spacemen - Blu-rayUsing oversized Invasion of the Saucer Men Halloween masks and silver sweat suits for the look of its alien invaders, Revenge of the Spacemen is a cheaply-made homage to 1950s rock and schlock that plays for solely laughs.  The film is cheesy, occasionally funny, and  ...

Bohemian Rhapsody - Movie ReviewThere are few people in the world who don’t know the name Freddie Mercury, whether you’re a fan of Queen, born after he died, or have lived in a cave forever.

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 ...

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  ...

Valentine (2001) - Blu-rayDoes this mean that you WON'T be my valentine?  With those words, one scorned nerd has his revenge on a group of pretty little liars.  Valentine, directed by Jamie Blanks, is immediately better than most of the teen slasher flicks of the late ‘90s and early 2000s.  It just doesn’t  ...

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.

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.
