Ralph Breaks the Internet review

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET Review — A Sugar Rush With a Healthy Message

Ralph Breaks the Internet Review — Worth a click in spite of itself. I will confess that Wreck-it Ralph has never been my favorite animated Disney character. He’s sweet but not compelling, and I was never into retro video games. In fact, I’m not into current video games either (one of the many repercussions of…

THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER’S WEB Review — A Sticky and Suspenseful Situation

The Girl in the Spider’s Web review — The Queen’s Claire Foy as morose, cyber punk investigator Lisbeth Salender?  Yes please! It seems the dragon tattooed world of the fictional Lisbeth Salander is constantly depicted as a gray, grim and grimy place where words are few and smiles are fewer. Salander’s latest outing, The Girl in…

The Grinch Review

THE GRINCH Review — 10-Year-Old Winston Says it’s a Humbug

The Grinch Review — Our kid critic doesn’t think it’s very merry The Grinch is a really bad animated movie version of the Dr. Seuss children’s book, from Illumination, the same company that does the Minions movies. It’s kind of a surprise that it’s just not as good as I hoped it would be. The…

Bohemian Rhapsody review

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY Review—Rami Malek is Somebody to Love

Bohemian Rhapsody Review — The film raucously reminds you of the high concept and high spirit of the mercurial Queen. Rami Malek, here-to-fore known as the Emmy Award winning star of the TV series Mr. Robot, literally convinces you in the blink of an eye that he IS Freddie Mercury. The film opens with an…
