Rating Title/Year Author
10/10 The Suicide Squad (2021) JimmyO It is Mr. Gunn's voice here in every scene, in every blood-soaked encounter, every brilliantly placed song, and every moment of humor and heart it's because of James Gunn - as well as the incredible talent he brought with him. EDIT

Midnight in the Switchgrass (2021) Chris Bumbray Bruce Willis contributes little more than a cameo but Megan Fox does her best with the weak material. EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2021
Val (2021) Chris Bumbray A humbling, humane portrait. EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2021
Jungle Cruise (2021) Chris Bumbray The first half is a terrific throwback to the days of high adventure, but the second half is over-the-top with a lame second half reveal. EDIT
Posted Jul 28, 2021
4/10 Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (2021) JimmyO Snake Eyes is just a bland continuation that failed to explore the mystique of a character far more intriguing than the film with his name. EDIT
Posted Jul 22, 2021
5/10 Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021) JimmyO Unfortunately, it doesn't quite live up to the first film as an inventive new horror franchise, more of a tired retread of a decent indie thriller. EDIT
Posted Jul 17, 2021
9/10 Fear Street Part Three: 1666 (2021) JimmyO Happily, the Fear Street Trilogy has been a joy of a genre experience. And now, as the final film takes us back into the past, I'm even more thrilled to say that this is an impressively satisfying end to the thrilling Netflix trilogy. EDIT
Posted Jul 17, 2021
Pig (2020) Chris Bumbray Nicolas Cage is terrific in one of his best films in years. EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2021
Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain (2021) Chris Bumbray A well-rounded, insightful look at a brilliant but complicated man. EDIT
Posted Jul 13, 2021
9/10 Fear Street Part Two: 1978 (2021) JimmyO The cast is game for some bloody good fun. The script fully embraces the joy of the slasher film - one that many fans take very seriously - and the direction and music make for a celebratory take on this familiar tale. EDIT
Posted Jul 9, 2021
7/10 The Forever Purge (2021) JimmyO While the stand-out performances are from [Ana de la] Reguera and [Tenoch] Huerta, Josh Lucas is terrific as a man conflicted by his personal beliefs. EDIT
Posted Jun 30, 2021
Black Widow (2021) Chris Bumbray Well-worth the longer than expected wait. EDIT
Posted Jun 29, 2021
9/10 No Sudden Move (2021) Alex Maidy This is not a movie where the bad guys lose and the good guys win, but enough twists keep coming that I often wasn't sure of how things would turn out. A quirky and fun flick, No Sudden Move is Soderbergh's best film in years. EDIT
Posted Jun 29, 2021
The Ice Road (2021) Chris Bumbray A decent enough B-movie. Liam Neeson really is in the Charles Bronson/Cannon phase of his career. EDIT
Posted Jun 25, 2021
F9 The Fast Saga (2021) Chris Bumbray A ton of fun for fans of the franchise. EDIT
Posted Jun 23, 2021
The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard (2021) Chris Bumbray One of the most inept sequels in recent memory. Even the cast can't save this one. EDIT
Posted Jun 15, 2021
5/10 F9 The Fast Saga (2021) JimmyO F9 will please fans expecting vehicular lunacy but may simply tire others hoping for something slightly less dopey. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2021
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) Chris Bumbray Better than most of the spin-offs but not as good as the first two, James Wan-directed films. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2021
Infinite (2021) Chris Bumbray High octane action can't save this messy would-be franchise starter EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2021
The Misfits (2021) Chris Bumbray An abysmal heist movie that's little more than an ad for Abu Dhabi tourism. That said, the locations are lovely. EDIT
Posted Jun 11, 2021
8/10 The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) JimmyO The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It continues to bring a fantastic blend of horror and heart to genre fans everywhere. EDIT
Posted Jun 1, 2021
10/10 A Quiet Place Part II (2021) JimmyO A Quiet Place Part II is a bold, emotional, and terrifying sequel. And forgive the hyperbole, but it's one of the best horror sequels I've had the pleasure of seeing. EDIT
Posted May 18, 2021
9/10 Riders of Justice (2020) Chris Bumbray Thoroughly original, action-packed, funny and even heart-warming - this one checks all the boxes. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2021
The Woman in the Window (2021) Chris Bumbray A terrible waste of a great cast. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2021
Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021) Chris Bumbray A terrific return to form for Angelina Jolie. A rock-solid, nineties-style thriller. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2021
Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021) Chris Bumbray An enjoyable continuation of a surprisingly durable franchise. EDIT
Posted May 12, 2021
Army Of The Dead (2021) Chris Bumbray Possibly the most ambitious zombie movie ever made. A blast from start to finish. EDIT
Posted May 11, 2021
Wrath of Man (2021) Chris Bumbray An intriguing celebration - and satire - of action movie machismo. Has a terrific final set piece and some really interesting performances. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2021
2/10 Separation (2021) Alex Maidy This is not just a bad horror movie, it is a bad movie overall. Everyone involved her deserved better than this and so do you. Steer clear. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
Gone With the Wind (1939) Alex Maidy It is a film so misguided and ignorant that odds are that if you have seen it, you likely only remember one or two iconic scenes and have nary a recollection of the rest. Gone With The Wind is quite literally not worth giving a damn. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
6/10 Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train (2020) Alex Maidy For the average viewer, you will likely be scratching your head as to what is going on half the time. If you were like me, it succeeded in making me want to go back and start watching the series from the first episode. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
Last Action Hero (1993) Alex Maidy I am happy to say that not only does Last Action Hero hold up well almost twenty years later but it remains one of the most underrated movie concepts of all time. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
Things Heard & Seen (2021) Chris Bumbray Sold as a horror film but much more of a relationship drama. Taken on that level its absorbing, just don't expect any scares. EDIT
Posted Apr 29, 2021
Tom Clancy's Without Remorse (2021) Chris Bumbray A so-so action flick elevated by Michael B. Jordan's megawatt charisma. EDIT
Posted Apr 28, 2021
5/10 Stowaway (2021) JimmyO Stowaway isn't a bad film by any stretch. There are a few moments that bring a sense of wonder and engagement, but as a whole, it's often too dull an experience. EDIT
Posted Apr 23, 2021
Together Together (2021) Chris Bumbray A good showcase for star Patti Harrison. EDIT
Posted Apr 22, 2021
8/10 Monday (2020) JimmyO This is an impressive feature with a smart script and terrific leading performances. See, not all Mondays are bad. EDIT
Posted Apr 14, 2021
Voyagers (2021) Chris Bumbray A mixed bag. Well acted by Sheridan, Rose-Depp and Farrell but the cast seems too mature for Lord of the Flies in space. EDIT
Posted Apr 8, 2021
8/10 Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) JimmyO The mighty beasts are back, and filmmaker Adam Wingard has managed to capture the fun and spectacle of it all in this wildly entertaining adventure. EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2021
Nobody (2021) Chris Bumbray Bob Odenkirk's everyman quality makes him the most appealing action hero in ages. This movie is a blast. EDIT
Posted Mar 23, 2021
City of Lies (2018) Chris Bumbray Features one of Depp's more nuanced recent performances EDIT
Posted Mar 19, 2021
Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) Chris Bumbray Will surpass even the loftiest expectations. Not at all the same movie as what hit theatres in 2017. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2021
7/10 The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run (2020) JimmyO The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run will please fans of the original series, as well as the previous films. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2021
Coming 2 America (2021) Chris Bumbray A tame but agreeable follow-up to the comedy classic. EDIT
Posted Mar 4, 2021
Boss Level (2021) Chris Bumbray An absolute blast from beginning to end. EDIT
Posted Mar 2, 2021
Cherry (2021) Chris Bumbray Way over the top (it has all the subtlety of a jackhammer) but undeniably entertaining and well-acted by Holland. EDIT
Posted Feb 25, 2021
7/10 The Mauritanian (2021) JimmyO There is much to appreciate here, but it's the two leads and the intriguing story that make it worth seeking out. EDIT
Posted Feb 23, 2021
Body Brokers (2021) Chris Bumbray A gem that's worth checking out. Shines a light on a diabolical practice few people know about. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2021
6/10 Silk Road (2021) Chris Bumbray Compelling but uneven. Well-cast but the real=life characters are ultimately two-dimensional. EDIT
Posted Feb 19, 2021
6/10 Bliss (2021) JimmyO Bliss can be magical, but it may not always rise to the heights of the complex tale it attempts to weave together. EDIT
