Review – The Shape of Water

Awards season rolls on and Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water has been near the top of my priority list for a while, now.  Today is the first day it's made it within reasonable driving distance, so I ventured out to an old-school theater (not even stadium seating!) to catch the first showing and see...

Review – The Disaster Artist

A24 just keeps chugging them out.  And this time, they have a potential mainstream hit on their hands in the form of The Disaster Artist.  The Disaster Artist chronicles the making of the true-life film The Room, which is widely considered to be the worst film of all-time (and please do not confuse The Room with 2015's Room, which...

Review – Justice League

It's taken a very long time to get here, but we finally have a live-action Justice League movie.  The road to the film hasn't been the smoothest, but DC and Warner Brothers got the job done, one way or another, and now it's time to sit back and take it in.  The marketing has felt a...

Review – Daddy’s Home Two

I just saw the original Daddy's Home for the first time, less than two weeks ago, and I thought it was fun and somewhat charming. The main reason I wanted to see it to begin with is because of how much I loved the trailer for the film that I'm talking about today, Daddy's Home Two.... Continue Reading →
