Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 03/17/24

"Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" sends DC's botched franchise off with a drab sequel rife with almost everything the series already had plenty of: Pointless action, overblown effects, uninspired humor. All inhabiting a mediocre story with no longterm payoff.

Poor Things

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/13/24

Yorgos Lanthimos remains a unique visionary in the world of cinema. Emma Stone deserves that Oscar win as she balances uncouth, naivety and free-spirited adventure all at once - and Mark Ruffalo is a fantastic cad. Willem Dafoe is perfectly cast as a Dr. Frankenstein-esque genius madman as well. Weird and wonderful and truly unlike anything else you will find out there - Lanthimos continues to push boundaries and we are all better for it.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/04/24

A mediocre coda to the mess that was the DCEU. Jason Momoa is still trying to balance comedy with the action but the effort here just feels more forced than the first film - which was over-the-top, but more entertaining. Hey, if you've stuck with it for this long, you may as well see it out until the end.

Good first impressions don't last, as the looney but shapless "Lisa Frankenstein" never finds an edge or a main idea to commit to.

Is the point "Fallen Leaves" makes revolutionary? Not at all, but it is never a bad thing to be reminded of the importance of companionship, and what a relief it is to have it when you need it most.

Ferrari

Like the world famous cars produced by the real Ferrari, "Ferrari" is flashy and sharp-looking, but nowhere as quick or slick.

Poor Things

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 12/31/23

Sporting an otherworldly visual style, sharp dark humor, and an amazing lead performance from Emma Stone, "Poor Things" is a piercingly timely allegory from one of modern cinema's most unconventional yet visionary minds.

Wish (2023)

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 11/29/23

An only so-so creation to mark a monumental occasion (Disney's 100th anniversary), "Wish" is a slight but still nice little feature that's beautifully animated.

Poor Things

“I must go punch that baby.”

The first film of the Leeds International Film Festival 2023 (LIFF), and what a strong start!

Poor Things is a humorous, sexy, and Gothic tale that can be philosophically but in the most bizarre ways. There is something so wonderful about the weird, especially in art.

Emma Stone's performance as Bella Baxter was just glorious. It’s also a very “risky” performance because when we first meet her, she is a child in an adult body after being reanimated, with her vocabulary being on the …
