Dune (2021)

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 10/26/21

Truly astounding. Denis Villeneuve brings one of the most highly regarded science fiction novels ever to the screen with most of its complex plot and dense themes still intact. Despite telling only half the story of the rise of Paul Muad'dib, "Dune" is an exciting and almost completely self-contained space opera not seen since the first "Star Wars," and an epic cinematic achievement that hasn't been accomplished as successfully since the "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

Halloween Kills

More like everyone dies tonight

‘Halloween Kills’ - the body count has been heighten in brutal fashion. From start till finish it’s a bloody carnage, and if you want to watch a movie that’s all about the kills, then this is for you, but don't go into this expecting anything else, because even though I liked the 2018 version, this unfortunately felt like a step down in quality.

Firstly, the writing in this movie is terrible and the people of Haddonfield have got more brain cells than oranges have pips! The number …

Titane

A slow-ticking body horror show with a human heart at its center, "Titane" does not underwhelm or fail to shock.

Halloween Kills

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 10/19/21

Plenty of sadistic kills but not nearly enough Michael and Laurie, "Halloween Kills" doesn't do justice to John Carpenter's 1978 masterpiece with a chaotic and padded out plot that never gets around to focusing on the time-tested relationship between its main killer and victim.

No Time to Die

Death Is Just Another Beginning

A sendoff is always hard to pull off but Daniel Craig manages to give Bond the right kind of end after a long series - one that has emotional heft but still reminds you that this is still 007 - whether it's a signature drink, car or that wit. I remember back when Craig was first announced as the next Bond how much people complained, but I think his tenure has been one of the better and once again whoever comes next will have some big shoes to fill.

Bond has never been good with …

Cry Macho

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 10/12/21

I can't find a single thing in "Cry Macho" worth mentioning. The story is dull, the characters are flat, and the entire film moves without purpose or direction. The title says "Macho," but this human condition drama is one of the weakest entries in Eastwood's extensive filmography.

No Time to Die

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 10/11/21

It's sometimes a little too slick, even for a Bond film, but "No Time to Die" nicely closes the book on the Craig-era with thrilling action, surprises, and heavy drama that emphasizes the humanized 007 who has been the strongest element of the franchise for the last 15 years.

The Many Saints of Newark

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 10/07/21

The rise of Tony Soprano rides sidecar to an undercooked crime saga that has some excellent performances, but not much else to make it stand out amongst the most visceral of crime family epics. Perhaps those who grew up with the series will see a little more in "The Many Saints of Newark" than I did.

No One Gets Out Alive

When the American Dream Becomes a Nightmare

A slow burn - perhaps too slow - horror film about the perils of trust and the deterioration of the so-called American dream. While some people may see that as some kind of immigration propaganda piece, even without that angle you can replace the main character with anyone struggling with finances or poverty and the like and still come out with the same conclusions. As it stands, Cristina Rodlo is one of the best parts of the film as an illegal immigrant doing anything she can to fix her …

“Cuckoo.”

Well folks, after four years of its announcement and two years of waiting, the latest Bond movie is finally here, but the journey of its arrival is long, chaotic, and excruciating. Let’s rewind the clocks back a bit, back when film director Danny Boyle was supposed to direct this movie, something I was extremely excited for, since he already dipped his toes in a James Bond like project when he directed a skit for 2012 Olympics performance of "James Bond and The Queen", but he departed from …
