Review – A Bad Moms Christmas

This post marks an interesting milestone for the Movie March!  With A Bad Moms Christmas, the Bad Moms franchise becomes the first to put out two films in a series since I started up this little project.  If you caught my review of the original, you'll remember that it was a pleasant surprise.  It was also a well-crafted...

Review – Thor: Ragnarok

Here we are!  If you know me at all on a personal level, you know that the Hulk is my favorite fictional character of all-time (I like him better than most real people), so Thor: Ragnarok has been my most-anticipated movie of the entire year, without question.  A combination of the comics' popular "Ragnarok" Thor story (or...

Review – Jigsaw

Once upon a time, the Saw franchise was cinematically synonymous with Halloween weekend.  For seven consecutive years, from 2004 through 2010, a new Saw film thrilled and terrorized horror lovers around the world with its combination of intricate and inventive traps, psychologically complex characters, and massive mythology.  Within my own circles, I frequently referred to the property...

Review – The Snowman

Tomas Alfredson's The Snowman is the first film featured in my Ten Fourth-Quarter 2017 Films to be Excited About! column to be released, alongside A24's The Killing of a Sacred Deer, which hits limited release, this weekend, as well.  I've actually been more excited for the latter - especially after seeing that the reviews for The Snowman were far...

Review – Happy Death Day

Once again, family commitments kept me from catching this one over opening weekend, but I went out of my way on a Monday to try my best to stay current with as many new releases as I can manage.  From the first trailer for Happy Death Day, I thought this Groundhog Day-meets-Final Destination-meets-Scream concept looked fun...

Review – Battle of the Sexes

I'm a pretty big tennis fan.  I'm also a fairly new tennis fan.  I became interested in the sport during the 2012 Summer Olympics.  I turned it on for background noise as I did chores around the house, but it kept grabbing my attention.  I couldn't help but notice how the players' bodies and minds...

Review – Blade Runner 2049

I'm not any sort of lifelong Blade Runner fan.  I saw the original film for the first time about five years ago.  I also haven't seen it since.  I liked it fine.  I just like many other films much more.  For me, the most appealing aspect of Blade Runner 2049 is director Denis Villeneuve, who knocked everybody's...

Review – American Made

I like Tom Cruise, but I wasn't particularly excited to see American Made.  Heist films featuring characters knee-deep in the drug trade are increasingly more and more common and rarely distinguish themselves from each other with enough regularity or creativity to warrant their production.  I was busy with family over the weekend and couldn't get out...
