Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

A Moving Tribute in a Solid MCU Mold

Director Ryan Coogler nearly stepped away from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever after the death of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman in 2020. How does one make a Black Panther sequel without THE Black Panther? But Coogler stayed on and he has crafted a sequel that not only pays homage to Boseman, but also serves as an emotional tribute while still moving the MCU to next level.

The film wastes no time on those emotions as it opens with the off-screen death of T'Challa - and follows with a …

Black Adam

Might be the first time that I have fallen asleep watching a superhero movie.

Dwayne Johnson is the most wooden and one-note he's ever been. I don't see the character, only the Rock. The editing is on the same level as Bohemian Rhapsody; it's so bad.

Dr. Fate was cool though.

The Banshees of Inisherin

Martin McDonagh crafts another scorching, black as pitch human comedy that like the very best of them is just as affecting during the sad parts as it is the funny ones.

The Menu

Undercooked, but still rather delicious at times. Plays better in the mouth if you accept the central conceit of the chef instead of questioning why it is you're not eating something more filling.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 11/15/22

"Wakanda Forever" is neither the most outside the box Marvel movie nor the most nimble or grandiose follow up to a previous installment. Regardless, the chance to revisit the magical world and characters of the first "Black Panther" is hard to turn down.

The Banshees of Inisherin

I mean, everything was fine yesterday.

"I do worry sometimes I might just be entertaining myself while staving off the inevitable."

The Banshees of Inisherin is one of the saddest breakup movies since Marriage Story. Well...in the film, they are not a romantic couple, but Padraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm (Brendan Gleeson) were good friends, until one day their friendship ends abruptly, just because Colm decides that despite there being no bad blood between them, he does not like him anymore. The reason is: you are dull. In some …

My Policeman

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 11/07/22

It's trying so hard to be the next "Brokeback Mountain, but this glimmering yet weak as water romance of illicit desire can't help but throw on a wet blanket everytime it starts to boil in the form of its intrusive, "The English Patient" storytelling structure.

Wendell and Wild

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 11/02/22

There's a little too much of everything in "Wendell & Wild." But when a movie is splitting at the seams with this much imagination, that's exactly the draw.

Ticket to Paradise (2022)

Ticket to Paradise - Review

When you thought romcom movies were dead and buried, they suddenly came out of the grave.

Ticket to Paradise is a predictable and corny movie that is saved by charm and enjoyment.

One of the most memorable cinema experiences I've had in a while. Not because of the movie itself but because five minutes into the film, some kids activated the fire alarm (little shits), and we had to leave the screen through the fire exit and go outside. Of course, it was a false alarm, and we managed to see …
