Breaking down all things pop culture

New Releases: Plane – It looks like Gerard Butler’s action movies are getting lazier in being named because this has to be the most ridiculously bland titling I have seen, so much so that the need to see it is as low as it could possibly be. The good news is the film is helmed …

New Releases: Empire Of Light – Having just seen just one trailer for this, it feels like the perfect pairing to put acclaimed filmmaker Sam Mendes and Academy Award-winning actress Olivia Colman together so I am immediately excited for this one. Add to that the film nerd panache of the legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins shooting it and …

New Releases: Amsterdam – I am going to preface this little blurb here by saying that I don’t think writer and director David O. Russell is a good dude as there have been many documented incidents of bullying cast, crew and extras on his film by him. Still, I will say that he really does …

New Releases: Pinocchio – In a kind of surprising move from Disney, their brand new live-action update of an animated classic, done by ImageMovers’ creator Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks, gets the Disney Day release on their streaming service and no theatrical release. After watching the film, it is even more surprising because it …

New Releases: Jackass Forever – I’m going to get the ball rolling here and call this one a must anticipated sequel which may sound weird coming from a forty-year-old dude like me but, to be honest, I grew up into my adulthood with Jackass the series, the movies and the CKY or Camp Kill Yourself …

New Releases: Scream – Usually January is a dead in the water month for big releases but in 2022 we’re getting the horror year kicked off early because a slasher franchise heavyweight is coming back to theaters and fans, such as myself, are really excited about it. It should be noted right away that this …

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”┬áJohnson, Ryan Reynolds …

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 …
