The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent | SXSW2022

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent | SXSW2022

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is a hilariously self-indulgent action comedy that magnifies the ESSENCE of what Nicolas Cage has become while serving as a love letter to cinema and storytelling. This is the “CAGIEST” NIC CAGE film yet! Playing a fictional version of himself, Cage is, yet again, at a crossroads between his career and his family. Unfortunately for him, the Cage fandom complicates things as he gets caught up in a ludicrous undercover CIA kidnapping plot where he’s enlisted to get intel on a crazed super fan. Pedro Pascal as Javi and Nicolas Cage as Nic Cage…

Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood | SXSW2022

Richard Linklater telegraphs an inspiring and heartfelt love letter to his family, state and country that’s pure nostalgia. Astro-naughting never looked cooler, and when you’re 10 1/2 in the most ideal time of America, it’s the coolest thing ever! A young boy takes us on the trip of his lifetime when we journey alongside his boyhood detailing what “our past” meant to him. A brilliantly animated documentary that delivers a gripping dramatic experience. Its presentation allows it the freedom to go anywhere it wants. It has penchants of the Oscar nominated Flee with the stylings of The Wonder Years. The…

I Love My Dad | SXSW2022

I Love My Dad | SXSW2022

A super cringe, super uncomfortable father/son love story that’s equal parts sick and amazingly tender. A beautiful trainwreck of emotions leading to a crash that will undo you. Patton Oswalt and James Morosini are unexpectedly the best Romance of 2022 and the biggest surprise… It’s a true story. Chuck represented an unreliable constant in his son Franklin’s life.

Bodies Bodies Bodies Review | SXSW2022

Hurricane parties aren’t for the faint of heart. They’re also not for fake best friends sitting on lies & trust issues, dripping with toxicity. This is a dirty, sexy WHO-DUNNIT that feels like Euphoria mixed with the manic of Uncut Gems and the camp of Scream. Some of Gen-Z’s worst and richest throw a Hurricane party that tragically ends before it really begins. A group of longtime so-called friends try to reconcile the return of one of their own. Despite their not-so best efforts, a child’s game heightens the rising tension and spills blood between them. The night becomes a…

Everything Everywhere All At Once Review | SXSW2022

Everything Everywhere All At Once Review | SXSW2022

EVERYTHING beautiful, hyper kinetic, wildly strange and strikingly imaginative! EVERYWHERE brilliant– story, sound and silliness that blows your mind. I’ve never seen a movie like it.

The threat of divorce and seizure of the family business by the IRS looms, as does her daughter’s desire to come out. Evelyn’s fracturing life will continue to splinter in ways she could never imagine as an alternate version of her husband inhabits her actual…

The Lost City Review | SXSW2022

The Lost City Review | SXSW2022

In a landscape devoid of original Hollywood blockbusters, The Lost City dashes onto the screen erecting a classic action rom-com that is everything you’d expect plus a hint of meta. A steamy jungle treasure hunt oozing with charisma and movie stardom. After the loss of her archaeologist husband, Loretta Sage is emotionally and socially withering away. The audience that craves her steamy romance novels, her publicist, and the series cover model aren’t. One Last book tour lands her in the crosshairs of a not-so mustache twirling super rich bad guy who believes Loretta can decipher a dead language that leads…

The 355 | Review

Think of The 355 like a math equation. Not just any math equation, but a MOVIE MATH EQUATION. One where you can upload a formula into a movie 3-D printer and PLOP, you get a movie. Sounds messy, however this movie isn’t that messy as it’s quite intentional at being what it wants to be. Does it work? Let’s just say this movie turns out to be a rough start to 2022. Questionably Elite Female Super Spies from different agencies across the globe set their differences aside to band together and thwart a group of mercenaries who look to secure…

Spider-Man: No Way Home Review

“BECAUSE THATS NOT WHO HE IS…” - Aunt May If someone would’ve told me Spider-Man: No Way Home would have Avengers: Endgame level audience engagement I would have laughed hysterically and offensively at them. Well, guess who’s laughing now… not me. Marvel and Sony, however, are all the way to the bank, as No Way Home exceeds every expectation I ever imagined it could and is POSSIBLY the GREATEST COMIC BOOK FILM OF ALL TIME! Spider-Man perched atop a light in Columbia Pictures' SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME. Spider-Man: No Way Home is the exclamation point to one of, if not,…

Bruised | Review

Bruised but not broken, Halle Berry’s directorial debut falls to the mat early and often at the hands of a clichéd and surface level screenplay. Thankfully, it’s her leading role that allows her to beat the count. Elevated by the Oscar Winner’s star power and deeply emotional heart wrenching performance, Halle’s Career behind the camera lives to fight on. Jackie Justice was at the top of the UFC ranks until her biggest fight to date alongside a life altering decision induced a crippling panic attack that led her to leave the sport behind entirely. Depression, Alcoholism, and the daily struggle…

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Review | The Most Immersive Viewing Experience of the Year

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Review | The Most Immersive Viewing Experience of the Year

Ghostbusters: Afterlife ironically breathes new life into the beloved franchise. I say ironically as the many swings and misses attempting to revive Classics from yesteryear over the past decade or so are too heavily reliant on nostalgia and stunt the potential in forging a new narrative capable of standing on its own. Lucky (Celeste O'Connor), Trevor (Finn Wolfhard), Podcat (Logan Kim) and Phoebe (McKenna Grace) in Columbia Pictures' GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE. Afterlife finds a sweet spot that’s far from overbearing Easter eggs and Nostalgia porn and sets the stage for contemporary heroes just as cool as what we grew up on,…
