Blockers

This raucous romp about 3 worrisome parents trying to stop their respective daughters from losing their virginity on prom night has some laughs. But quite a lot of just plain ordinary gross-out humor too. The comedic center-piece being John Cena participating in a butt-chugging competition. To the film's credit, the three adult leads (Cena, Mann, and Barinholtz) are funny together and are responsible for the intermittent laughs.

Peterloo

"Peterloo" by Yojimbo

A survivor of the battle of Waterloo returns home to a Manchester wracked by joblessness and grinding poverty, where he and his family find hope in the form of a popular movement to enfranchise the working class.
Mike Leighís socialist opus revolves around the reformist movement of the 19th century and its ruthless crushing by an indifferent and arrogant elite made paranoid of insurrection by the French revolution some years earlier. It has a very old fashioned feel to it, often as it is very …

Velvet Buzzsaw

Nope, this satirical comedy sure isn't a horror.

Critique is so limiting and emotionally draining.
Iíve always wanted to do something long-form, beyond opinion.
Dip my toe into an exploration of origin and essence.
A metamorphosis of spirit into reality.
IíveÖ Iíve never had the vehicle until now.

Regularly Iím asked to watch a low-budget film and to give my opinion about it. And once in a while, Iíll accept such a favor. But when someone asks me, to watch a horror movie every month, and then report on it, I can hardly refuse it. Itís …

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel Flies High

The MCU has been around so long (11 years now, people) that origin stories seem blasť and tedious at this point. But don't count out those origin stories just yet, because Captain Marvel manages to make something old seem new again - and not just because its takes place in the 90s and has plenty of throwbacks to that distinctive era.

No, Captain Marvel succeeds more thanks to an interesting story, powerful connections and, despite so much trolling, a fantastic turn from Brie Larson. Plus, …

Mid90s

Rod - wrote on 03/13/19

Awkward and flat. The former is good because there is no other way to portray a 13-year-old's life but awkward. I was already hooked in the beginning, I just didn't feel much of the rise, climax and resolution to be as active as the beginning of the film, that's why I felt it was kinda flat towards the end.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Nolane - wrote on 03/03/19

A terrific final film to the best children's trilogy of all time, "How To Train Your Dragon: Hidden World" could not be any better. Good story, some fun humor, epic moments and some of the best CGI animation of all time. Most importantly, packs an emotional punch. A great movie not to be missed on the big screen.

It's Such a Beautiful Day

It's Such a Beautiful Day

It's Such a Beautiful Day or: How Everything Will Be OK and I Am So Proud of You.

The film is actually three short films molded into one. But it flows so well as one movie. It tells its story with such importance and sympathy.

Early in the film, Bill recognizes that his routine (which he finds so strange) is his life. Any deviation of his routine is actually strange because its not the norm. Itís this terrible recognition of what life is really like.

Bill shows signs of depression …

Siberia (2018)

Amy - wrote on 02/19/19

It was fun watching Keanu Reeves speak Russian, but this movie couldn't seem to figure out what it wanted to be. It swerved all over the place from glamrous to gritty, mushy to exploitative, high-minded to cliche-ridden.
