Film Review: Jurassic World Dominion (2022)

“They bludgeon you with raises until you lose all critical thinking skill.” It’s a line spoken by Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) as part of a much larger rant. The “they” about whom he monologues is his employer, the biogenetics company BioSyn, run by Lewis Dodgson (Campbell Scott). Fans may recall BioSyn as the corporation thatContinue reading “Film Review: Jurassic World Dominion (2022)”

Film Review: The Sadness (2021)

For such an iconic and popular sub-genre of horror, zombie cinema has rarely had the chance to reinvent itself. Sure, we’ve had minor changes from properties like Evil Dead (summoned by an ancient book) and 28 Days Later (they RUN now), but the basic idea has remained fairly constant. Despite this, zombie flicks have persisted,Continue reading “Film Review: The Sadness (2021)”

Series Review: Love, Death & Robots – Season 3 (2022)

Say what you want about Netflix’s consistency with their original content, but when they hit the nail on the head, they can REALLY hit it. For its past two seasons, the animated anthology series Love, Death & Robots has found a comfortable niche within Netflix’s overabundance of content. Frankly, along with their fantastic League ofContinue reading “Series Review: Love, Death & Robots – Season 3 (2022)”

After over 30 years of service as one of the navy’s top pilots, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is highly-decorated, yet maintains his rank as a Captain to remain flying.

In the wake of a deeply personal tragedy, Harper (Jessie Buckley) heads to a “dream house” in the English countryside. The village in which it resides is a quaint and tight-knit community; Harper’s landlord Geoffrey (Rory Kinnear) refers to it as the kind of place where you can leave your door unlocked. Harper puts forthContinue reading “Film Review: Men (2022)”

Film Review: Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022)

In a modern cinematic landscape bombarded by sequels, re-quels, remakes, reboots, and rip-offs, there isn’t as much space for artistic freedom in the medium as one would hope. The newest film from directing duo ‘Daniels’ (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), Everything Everywhere All At Once, certainly wears its influences on its sleeve; The Matrix, especially,Continue reading “Film Review: Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022)”

Series Review: Moon Knight – Season 1 (2022)

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues its expansion further into the cosmos and the all-encompasing multiverse, new films and series have very seldom felt like their own entities. With the interconnectivity of these projects as complex as it is, each release has usually included dozens of items listed on their ‘required watching’ lists. It’s refreshing,Continue reading “Series Review: Moon Knight – Season 1 (2022)”

Film Review: Come and See (1985)

As I write this, I’m sitting at my desk with a cup of herbal tea, a warm blanket around my shoulders, and Stan Getz playing on my headphones. I’m not generally a super chill person anyway, but I certainly am checking off a lot of boxes you might find on an article titled something condescendingContinue reading “Film Review: Come and See (1985)”

Picking up a few months after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home, ex-Sorcerer Supreme Steven Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) attends the wedding of his ex-fiancé, Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams). During the reception, Strange and Palmer chat, and agree that a relationship between them never could have worked out because of Strange’s prolific involvement in theContinue reading “Film Review: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022)”
