Crazy Rich Asians Review

CRAZY RICH ASIANS Review — Glorious, Glitzy, Glamorous, Sublime

Crazy Rich Asians Review — The Most Fabulous Film of the Summer So glad the rest of the world has finally joined me on the Crazy Rich Asians bandwagon! This has long been my most anticipated film of the summer, and now it’s my favorite. Yes, it’s a frothy, glittery rom com, but it’s also…

John David Washington in Black Klansman

BLACKKKLANSMAN Review—Will You Be a Card-Carrying Fan?

Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman is based on the absolutely bonkers but bona fide true tale of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington—yes, Denzel’s son), the first African American detective in the Colorado Springs police force who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in an undercover sting in the 1970s. He even became a card-carrying member of the organization!…

The Meg Review

THE MEG Review – Getting Too Chummy With This Supersized Shark

  The Meg Review — Somewhere Between Sharknado and Jaws The Meg (which is short for Megalodon) is a wannabe blockbuster for the ages. It’s based on pulp-author Steve Alten’s action adventure novel about Jonas Taylor, a tortured, alcoholic diver and paleontologist who makes a stand against the most dangerous apex predator the world has…

Disney's Christopher Robin Review

DISNEY’S CHRISTOPHER ROBIN Review — A Taste of Honey

Disney’s Christopher Robin Review — Sweet Relief From Mind-Numbing Digital Overload Just the sweet and simple dollop of honey that’s needed in these complicated and overwhelming digital days, Disney’s Christopher Robin is so deliciously cuddly you’ll find yourself more inclined to hug a loved one as you exit the theater, rather than turning on your…

The Spy Who Dumped Me review

THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME Review — Girls Just Wanna Have Guns

The Spy Who Dumped Me review — Nobody Does it Better Than Sam and Kate I’d wager SNL’s Kate McKinnon is even funny in her sleep. And when you team her up with Outlander’s Sam Heughan (oh Jamie!) who is doubtless even sexy in his sleep, the plot, the co-stars (Mila who?) the score, the cinematography,…

Mission: Impossible—Fallout review

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE — FALLOUT Review — I Stand Almost Alone in My Opinion

Mission: Impossible—Fallout review — Probably the only negative review you’ll read First of all, I need to tell you that I’m not a Tom Cruise hater. I actually like the guy, both onscreen and off. He is by no means the reason for my contrary feelings about the film and my departure from critic colleagues…

Teen Titans Go! to the Movies Review

TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES Review: Winston Says It’s “Better Than Any Live-Action DC Film So Far”

Teen Titans Go! to the Movies Review by 10-year-old Winston Ordoña Teen Titans Go! to the Movies is a hilarious animated film that springs from the hit Cartoon Network show, Teen Titans Go!. The show is about the more kid-friendly version of the comic-book team led by Batman’s sidekick, Robin. If you haven’t seen the show, don’t…

Eighth Grade Review

EIGHTH GRADE Review — For the Junior High Schooler in All of Us

EIGHTH GRADE Review — Get ready for a trip back to Jr. High, warts and all From the very first seconds of Eighth Grade, you know it’s a special film. It opens on the latest installment of 13-year-old Kayla’s charmingly self-conscious video blog, covering social skills like “Being Yourself,”  and “Putting Yourself Out There.” She…

Mama Mia! Here We Go Again Review

MAMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN Review — Cheesy Yet Pleasy

Mama Mia! Here We Go Again Review — How this film works is Greek to me, but it does Cheesy? Check Plot free? Check Banal? Double check Overdone? Triple check Curiously intriguing and joyful? Quadruple check!!!! Mama Mia! Here We Go Again is definitely a film where the the whole is far greater than sum…

NICO 1988 Review – Doom Cabaret at its Blue Best

NICO 1988 Review — The last two years of the singer’s tumultuous and too short life Nico, 1988 is not an easy movie to like—because Nico (Trine Dyrholm) herself wasn’t all that likable. What’s more, the film focuses on the last two years of the singer’s too-short life, glossing over her cool and glamorous heyday…
