With its sense of urgency and Danielle Deadwyler's standout performance, this standard factual drama ranks higher than most biopics tailor-made for award season.

Armageddon Time

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 01/21/23

For a semi-autobiographical film, "Armageddon Time" feels oddly impersonal and disconnected. The characters and story are earnest but pale in comparison to movies of this ilk, some of which just came out along with this one.

The Menu

Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/14/23

A gastro-satire that will have you busting your gut while giving you plenty of food for thought. Ralph Fiennes shines as the renowned chef who has been pushed to the limit - coming up with a final, memorable menu and Anya Taylor-Joy, as always, shines as the odd woman out who must think on her feet when she realizes the danger. The rest of the supporting cast - Nicholas Hoult, John Leguizamo, Judith Light, Janet McTeer and Hong Chau among them, round out a strong lineup that gives the film a …

I know Cate Blanchett and Michelle Yeoh are deservedly the frontrunners for this year's Oscars.

However, Danielle Deadwyler should win because this was an earth-shattering performance. There is a point in the film where I thought the real Mamie Till-Mobley took over Danielle Deadwyler's body. Incredible work.

Halloween Ends

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 01/03/23

The most "WTF were they thinking?" "Halloween" film ever. The only thing that makes sense is the title. Halloween certainly ends... and thank God!

Violent Night

"Violent night. Gory night. All is calm. If all doesn't want to get shot in the fucking head."

Dumb, violent, and lots of fun. It's a mixture of Die Hard 1 & 2, Home Alone, and a little bit of Bad Santa. So, with all of those examples in mind, you have some idea of what type of movie you're getting.

Halloween Ends - Review

“I've run from you. I have chased you. I have tried to contain you. I have tried to forgive you. I thought maybe you were the Boogeyman. No, you're just a man who's about to stop breathing.”

Yes, I am writing this during the Christmas season. Sue me! Anyways…

Here it is, the end of this 50-year later Halloween saga. A rocky journey over the four years, with the body count being higher, blood everywhere, and a compelling take on the Michael Myers lore. The Halloween movies have so …

The Menu

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 12/17/22

"The Menu" is a wickedly funny, wholly unpredictable, and thoughtfully biting satire of fine dining and art-house snobbery, strengthened by the sheer gravity of Ralph Fiennes' madman chef.

Black Adam

Matthew Brady - wrote on 11/22/22

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

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

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.
