    Robert McCall finds himself at home in Southern Italy but he discovers his friends are under the control of local crime bosses. As events turn deadly, McCall knows what he has to do: become his friends' protector by taking on the mafia.

    This film works almost entirely because of two factors. The first reason why this makes for a solid entry is the incredible screen presence of Denzel and how he is able to make…

    Stacy and Lydia are BFFs who've always dreamed about having epic Bat Mitzvahs. However, things start to go comically awry when a popular boy and middle school drama threatens their friendship and their rite of passage.

    The Sandler family absolutely surprised me here. While I am a massive fan of Adam, his Netflix comedies often fall flat on their face. His comedic outings just do not work…

  • Retribution

    A bank executive receives a bomb threat while driving his children to school that his car will explode if they stop and get out.

    Liam Neeson just doesn’t stop Liam Neeson-ing, and while the world was a better place because of that ten years ago, it feels like it’s time to call it quits. Retribution isn’t a tragically bad film from start to finish; the experience has its moments, but it is inevitably a painfully…

    An alien scarab chooses Jaime Reyes to be its symbiotic host, bestowing the recent college graduate with a suit of armor that's capable of extraordinary powers, forever changing his destiny as he becomes the superhero known as Blue Beetle.

    In a world of superhero projects that seemingly drop every two days, Blue Beetle had little to offer from the trailers. Nothing about the film felt original in any way,…

    Based on the unbelievable, inspiring true story of a team of underdogs - a struggling, working-class gamer, a failed former race car driver, and an idealistic motorsport exec - who risk it all to take on the most elite sport in the world.

    After seeing this trailer 746 times in the theater, my brain was wired to be “anti-Gran Turismo” going into this screening. Not only did this…

    An intelligence operative for a shadowy global peacekeeping agency races to stop a hacker from stealing its most valuable and dangerous weapon.

    I truly believe Gal Gadot can thrive given the right script and situation, but Heart of Stone is not that situation. This is an action film that feels as generic as they come. Whether it be the mediocre script, underwhelming introduction to our characters, or poorly shot sequences…

    A single mom named Gabbie hires a tour guide, a psychic, a priest and a historian to help exorcise her newly bought mansion after discovering it is inhabited by ghosts.

    I have some sense of nostalgia for the 2003 Eddie Murphy “classic,” but it is clearly a mediocre film. Taking this ride, the concept, the imagery, and attempting to make another film based around it certainly feels odd. Beyond the…

    The film follows the Turtle brothers as they work to earn the love of New York City while facing down an army of mutants.

    2023 has been an absolute powerhouse for animation, both in quality and box office revenue. While TMNT isn’t poised to dominate the box office, there should be a good amount of people talking about this one once they see it, and word of mouth should help…

    When a group of friends discover how to conjure spirits using an embalmed hand, they become hooked on the new thrill, until one of them goes too far and unleashes terrifying supernatural forces.

    A24 often delivers horror films that feel distinct compared to a generic “big studio” outing. While some miss the mark, they often bring enough to the table that allow them to do their job. When A24 got…

    In Secret Invasion, set in the present-day MCU, Fury learns of a clandestine invasion of Earth by a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls. Fury joins his allies, including Everett Ross, Maria Hill, and the Skrull Talos, who has made a life for himself on Earth.

    Memento chronicles two separate stories of Leonard, an ex-insurance investigator who can no longer build new memories, as he attempts to find the murderer of his wife, which is the last thing he remembers.

    “Remember Sammy Jankis.” Pearce’s calm and collected voice is engrained in my brain and will be until the end of time. His ability to keep our attention and continuously make us curious throughout is a…
