    The Gray Man

    After the recent comments that the Russo Brothers have made about the “elitist” nature of movie theatres and that current criticisms of Marvel’s Phase 4 are juvenile, they have no right making a movie as bad as The Gray Man.

    Perhaps “bad” isn’t the right word to describe The Gray Man. The movie is technically proficient, possesses some moderately engaging fight sequences with well executed choreography, competent cinematography (except for some of the most in your face and annoying drone…

    Thor: Love and Thunder

    Audiences: Why isn’t it possible (for you to make a good movie Taika)?

He rarely ever says anything, but you always know what he’s thinking. This is a Batman with a…

    The Northman

    ★★★½

    It’s truly remarkable that Robert Eggers’ weakest feature film is still excellent. If he hadn’t proven it with both The VVitch and The Lighthouse, The Northman cements Eggers as one of the most competent, uncompromising, and meticulously calculated working directors of this current era of filmmaking.

    While The Northman is heavily inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet (and to a lesser extent, MacBeth), and having read those plays will give you a general understanding of how this narrative will unfold, the film…
