Mark Wystrach

“The Eyes of Tammy Faye” – Sweet Jesus. Up until a month ago, my exposure to televangelism consisted of two experiences. The first, and recurring weekly, was sitting in the church parking lot after Sunday mass trying to get reception on the little TV in our family van while my parents were at some adult […]

“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” – I’ll try not to geek out too much on you. With the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, we can officially say the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has really begun. Yes, I know Loki and WandaVision and Falcon […]

Synopsis

Two old guys and a girl

Director

Martin Campbell

Cast

Samuel L. Jackson
Michael Keaton
Maggie Q
Patrick Malahide
David Rintoul
Robert Patrick

Is it just me or do assassin movies seem to be really hit or miss? Yep, an assassin pun right of the gates. It’s a serious question though. Leon: The Professional is pretty much the gold standard. The first three Bourne movies were pretty solid, but the last two were not. The Hitman and its […]

The Suicide Squad

Synopsis

Time for Plan B to thwart enemies on the island of Corto Maltese

Director

James Gunn

Cast

Margot Robbie
Idris Elba
John Cena
Joel Kinnaman
Michael Rooker
Viola Davis

Let’s try plan B. It’s pretty clear by now that the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) is essentially toast. Or, it’s a giant mess of barely connected movies that nobody has bothered to plan out, but really, it’s both. And that is how we got a sequel to Suicide Squad that is actually a remake, but, […]

Director

Jaume Collet-Serra

Cast

Dwyane Johnson
Emily Blunt
Paul Giamatti
Edgar Ramirez
Jesse Plemons
Jack Whitehall

The Jungle Cruise ride at Disneyland is one of the original attractions from when the park opened. It is filled with animatronic animals and shows every bit of its sixty-six years. Yet, inexplicably, it always has a long wait time because, well, I’ll have to get back to you on that one. For lack of […]

Michael Ironside
Anton Yelchin

“Terminator: Salvation” – Eff yeah. My original review of Terminator: Salvation was written in 2010. I’d like to believe my writing has gotten a lot better since then, but I’m biased. As it turns out, Goat discovered that nobody had reviewed Terminator: Salvation over at Ruthless Reviews, so I volunteered my review. But first, I […]

Black Widow (2021)

Black Widow

Synopsis

From birth, Natasha Romanova is groomed to be a KGB operative, the Black Widow.



Cast

Scarlett Johansson
Florence Pugh
Rachel Weisz
Daniel Harbor
Ray Winstone
William Hurt
O-T Fagbenle

“Black Widow” – Back up a step. Not even a pandemic can stop Marvel. Even with the delayed movie releases, Marvel seemed to be ready for any contingency. WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki have filled in the movie/television schedule that has otherwise been a giant void of nothing. Now, with things opening […]

F9: The Fast Saga

F9: The Fast Saga

Synopsis

It’s a Dom Dom Movie

Director

Justin Lin

Cast

Vin Diesel
Michelle Rodriguez
Jordana Brewster
Tyrese Gibson
Charlize Theron
Helen Mirren
Kurt Russell

“F9” – Dumb a thousand times. F9 is one the dumbest movies I have ever seen. It was so dumb, rather than waste brain cells and precious time thinking about this travesty, I considered just writing the word “dumb” one thousand times and calling it a review. That is what this movie deserves. But, the […]

John Krasinski

Cast

Emily Blunt
Millicent Simmonds
Cillian Murphy
John Krasinski
Noah Jupe
Djimon Hounsou
Scoot McNairy

“A Quiet Place Part II” – Everything can hear you scream. Since I did not write a full review of A Quiet Place, just noted it as arguably the best movie of 2018 in my year-end review, it is worth spending a little time here to talk about it before getting into Part II. A […]

A tale of two Emmas

Director

Craig Gillespie

Cast

Emma Stone
Emma Thompson
Joel Fry
Paul Walter Hauser
John McCrea
Emily Beecham
Kayvan Novak

“Cruella” – A tale of two Emmas. For years, Disney has been trying to recapture the magic of beloved classics, either by remaking them or attempting to reimagine them, and mostly failing. Alice in Wonderland, Dumbo, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Maleficent, and more. I get that people have enjoyed some of them, […]
