Dune Review | Villenueve Does it Again!

Dune Review | Villenueve Does it Again!

Dune is absolute cinematic mastery. Thoughtful storytelling that takes its time, patiently expanding the world and the characters who inhabit it so as to create a rich universe that feels tangible. The Atreides family & empire is entrusted with the protection, collection, processing, & extraction of the galaxy’s most valuable element. Seeing as it only exists on a dangerous hostile planet the task is no easy feat and one that Duke Leto Atreides does not take lightly. However, what unspoken dangers lie in this desert planet-- concealed by the sand, the heat, and the politics-- may be beyond even the…

Dear Evan Hansen Review | Powerful & Touching

Dear Evan Hansen Review | Powerful & Touching

Dear Evan Hansen is a musical that, despite some of its shortcomings, manages to enthrall & inspire. Effective in every way, the narrative finds a way through the cracks infecting all who stick through and allow it to grab hold. A beautiful tribute to the anonymous ones. Ben Platt in Dear Evan Hansen Evan is a high school senior with severe social anxiety who receives an assignment from his therapist to write motivational letter to himself to improve his disposition in life as well as increase his self-worth.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Review

Candyman Review | More Sour Than Sweet

Candyman Review | More Sour Than Sweet

Someone call a dentist because Candyman is rotten to the root… Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in Candyman The gentrified Chicago neighborhood of Cabrini-Green has a history of violence at the hands of white oppressors, of police, and, more recently, at the hands of the men, the myth, the hive… Candyman. Slow to start, the film takes its time to establish the world, the characters, and the stakes. At first it feels right since horror films are notorious at jumping right into it, barely even giving you a chance to breathe until after the shocking cold open. We spend half of its…

The Suicide Squad Review | The James Gunniest Film!

The Suicide Squad Review | The James Gunniest Film!

The Suicide Squad is undoubtedly DC Studio’s best and brightest entry into their cinematic universe. An absolutely insane experience that pushes the envelope, unsettling even those who find gruesome violence entertaining, which is exactly why it, unfortunately, ends up falling a bit short for my liking. Joel Kinnaman, John Cena, Margot Robbie, Peter Capaldi, & Idris Elba in The Suicide Squad Task Force X, composed of some of the most dangerous individuals the world over, is incentivized to go to the island nation of Corto Maltese to prevent a powerful weapon known only as Project Starfish from being used against…

The Lost Leonardo is quite a surprising gem. A documentary, yes, but a mystery that keeps you engaged and unsure until the very end.

The Lost Leonardo This narrative revolves around the mystery that surrounds the Salvator Mundi, the first Leonardo da Vinci painting to be discovered in over a century.

Black Widow Review | A Promising Start To Phase 4

Black Widow Review | A Promising Start To Phase 4

Black Widow is a pleasant surprise! An action packed gem full of female badassery, surprisingly dark themes, and delightful humor all wrapped up in one big family drama. A promising start to the film side of phase 4. And here I was standing on my soap box these last two years saying this film shouldn’t exist because it makes light of the stakes Marvel tries so desperately to raise though they lack the commitment to stick to any major decision. I can admit I was wrong. Not about the stakes thing, definitely right about that. About its existence because this…

In the Heights Review | The Movie of the Year!

In the Heights Review | The Movie of the Year!

“Paciencia y Fé” is the only thing that kept me from loosing it while waiting for In the Heights. Patience during the global melt-down that paralyzed the theatrical industry forcing studios to push films, often aggressively. Faith that the wait would be well worth it. At the least, films are designed to delight and entertain. Everyone can think of many films they love that have achieved that goal but everyone also has those couple of films that rocked them to their core and filled them with wonder and emotion few other films could. In the Heights is one such film…
