All Eyez On Me 2 hrs 20 minutes, Rated R for Titties, Hoes, and Gangsta Shit Is This Film Worth My Time? Its maybe worth a Netflix viewing if you’re not familiar with West Coast Gangsta Rap. Its a good musical primer to Tupac’s major hits. West Coast Represent: Tupac was from West Oakland, pre-gentrification. […]

Keep it simple, stupid. If you were to make a list of video games you would most like to see adapted into movies, I am guessing that list would include exactly zero classic arcade games. I have never expressed a desire to see a Galaga or Centipede movie on the silver screen nor have I […]

Director

John Krasinski

Cast

Emily Blunt
John Krasinski
Millicent Simmonds
Noah Jupe
Cade Woodward

A Quiet Place I just reviewed another horror movie, Winchester earlier this week. It was dreadful. This week’s movie was a horror/thriller orchestrated by John Krasinski, who also played a lead role alongside his real world wife Emily Blunt. Like I stated in another review, horror is not my movie genre of choice. If Get […]

Director

David Bruckner

Cast

Rafe Spall
Arsher Ali
Robert James-Collier
Sam Troughton
Paul Reid

The Ritual (2017) I only get to watch horror movies by myself. This isn’t out of choice. It’s just that my girlfriend wants nothing to do with anything more terrifying than The Emperor’s New Groove. And in this day and age, you can’t casually phone a pal and ask them round to watch a horror […]

Winchester (2018) is a movie that was based on the true story of the heiress to the enormous fortune of the Winchester Rifle Company. The great Helen Mirren plays Sarah Winchester who lived in an ever-expanding creepy mansion that she was convinced was haunted by the ghosts of the humans retired by her dead husband’s […]

A Tribute To Robert Altman

A Tribute To Robert Altman The American cinema never really deserved the likes of Robert Altman, a man who never made the same movie twice, even when detractors accused him of coasting on his reputation. Sure, he largely disappeared in the 1980s (except for the wonderful Secret Honor), and even after his comeback with 1992s […]

Director

Albert Pyun

Cast

Tim Tomerson
Jackie Earl Haley
Frank Collision
Kamala Lopez
Nicholas Guest
Judd Omen
Vincent Klyn

I’ve been meaning to review this movie forever. Dollman was released in 1991, but if any movie begs to be reviewed in the 80’s action format, it is the totally ruthless and bad-assed Tim Thomerson as Brick Bardo in Dollman. I have this movie on Amazon and even have a VHS tape copy of this […]

Ben Mendelsohn
Simon Pegg
Lena Waithe
Mark Rylance
T.J. Miller

Whew! If you are not a fan of CGI and think that CGI is ruining film, Ready Player One might kill you. At the very least, it will give you an aneurism or a stroke. Possibly both. If so, you deserve it. I am not quite ready to devote my year-end review to all of […]

Jason Briggs
Who Cares

Tatiania Mills (Odeya Rush) will dislodge and eat ABC (Already Been Chewed) gum from beneath the water fountain to taunt and gross out her adversaries at school. Sir Michael Caine again does the equivalent to his career by starring in this mindless atrocity. Michael Caine plays a deposed British Caribbean Republic dictator who comes the […]

The gnomes must be saved, but why?

Director

John Stevenson

Cast

Emily Blunt
Johnny Depp
Chiwetel Ejiofor
James McAvoy
Mary J. Blige

O.K. I used to be wracked with guilt as I refused to watch or review animation and most comic book or superhero movies. I felt really bad since I browbeat Al (who no longer speaks to me) into actually spending his own money to watch and review The Emoji Movie. Since then, I have tried […]

Ten Films That Ruined the World

To Kill a Mockingbird Gregory Peck as Atticus? Dignified, steadfast, and impossibly handsome. The story? A masterfully acted and scripted morality play that elevates honor, courage, and human decency above all else. Its a great film, fondly remembered, and one of the few cases where the adaptation exceeds the source material. So what’s the problem? […]
