New Releases: Ghostbusters: Afterlife – The Ghostbusters have had a dicey ride through the reboot or continuation prism as the film from 2016 wasn’t well received at all, with many fans deriding it as destroying their childhoods and other such lame opinions. Now, the son of original director Ivan Reitman, Jason Reitman has continued the …

New Releases: Red Notice – I will admit that there is really nothing super original about this art stealing action flick that is full of cliches and predictable exposition dialogue but that’s not the point. What is the point is the fantastic chemistry between the three stars of this film, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ryan Reynolds …

New Releases: Eternals – It’s crazy to see, as we get closer to the reveal and origins of another super-powered team within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, some of the worst reviews that have come out of this franchise in its over ten year run. I have to say that I am totally skeptical of them …

New Releases: Last Night In Soho – October is a damn good month for movies this year as we have yet another week that features one of my most anticipated films of the year and it happens to be one from a filmmaker who makes nothing but gold. Yes, Edgar Wright could be considered possibly my …

New Releases: Dune – It feels like I’ve been waiting forever for this Denis Villeneuve take on a Frank Herbert-written epic that I have read, as well as all the sequel books that follow. This means I’m fully in the know of a complex story that David Lynch had issues bringing to the screen in …

New Releases: No Time To Die – It feels like we’ve been waiting forever to see Daniel Craig’s swan song as cinema’s most famous super spy and now it is here and it looks glorious. There’s a lot to make up for as the last installment, Sam Mendes’ Spectre, was a complete and utter disappointment …

New Releases: Venom: Let There Be Carnage – After many delays and release date shifts we finally get the follow-up to a non-MCU-connected franchise that still manages to include Spider-Man and, yes, I know that this is all convoluted and confusing. That all said, the first Venom movie was a stupid amount of fun and …

New Releases: Dear Evan Hansen – It seems like we haven’t learned from Glee at all and we’re still going forward with close to thirty-year-old actors playing high school teenagers. I know that it is a special case with this film as star Ben Platt played the role on Broadway and was the originator of …

New Releases: The Eyes Of Tammy Faye – With a tale as wild as teleevangelist couple Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, I’m really surprised that it took this long to get a biopic of the God and money driven power couple that had a storied rise and a scandalous fall. Now that it’s here, I …
