• Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    ★★★★

    I still haven't seen Multiverse of Madness, The Batman, Everything Everywhere All at Once, X, or The Northman yet, but I'd be DAMNED if I didn't see Chip and Dale back in action!

  • Klaus

    Klaus

    ★★★½

    Once every hundred years a Christmas movie rises from the bland and uninspired crowd and shows audiences that there is such a thing as true Christmas spirit. What was the last one you remember? Ron Howard's How the Grinch Stole Christmas? Elf? Maybe you prefer The Night Before with Seth Rogen. Well, Klaus should definitely be a part of your holiday tradition. A heartwarming tale of the origins of Santa Claus told through a gorgeous children's storybook art style and amazing performances from an all-star cast including Jason Schwartzman, JK Simmons, Rashida Jones, Joan Cusack, and the late Norm Macdonald.

  • The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    ★★★★½

    First off, I just wanted to say that ticket prices are ridiculous. I haven't been to a theater since I saw the re-release of Star Trek IV in August and now I'm having to pay $12.05 for one ticket. But I gotta say, it was kinda worth it.

    I love Nic Cage. How can you not? The man has had one of the wildest and most entertaining careers in the history of cinema, from his Oscar winning performance in Leaving…

  • The Outsiders

    The Outsiders

    ★★★★

    Shorty!

    A beautifully told story about the struggles of acceptance and belonging painted over the backdrop of the mid-sixties. Francis Ford Coppola expertly tells this story through conventional shots that would have been used in dramas of the time, which is complimented by a score written and composed by his father, Carmine Coppola, which clearly draws from films from that period. And the all-star ensemble cast brings it all together with among the best performances of their careers. Raw, heartbreaking, poetic.

  • Where the Buffalo Roam

    Where the Buffalo Roam

    ★★★★½

    I went into this one as a longtime Hunter Thompson fanboy. I've read most of his work, watched numerous interviews and documentaries on the man, and I've seen the two notable adaptations of his books, The Rum Diary and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (the latter of which is one of my favorite films). But until today I had never seen the first big screen interpretation of anything Thompson related, Where the Buffalo Roam with Bill Murray as Thompson…

  • Mosaic

    Mosaic

    ★★★

    I dug this one up at a local charity shop for $2 figuring I'd get my money back in the entertainment value of a direct to video Stan Lee endorsed superhero movie. And I can say I definitely got that.

    I've been reading Stan's ground-breaking work for a few years now, so I'm accustomed to his writing style now, and you can definitely tell Mosaic is a Stan Lee story, even though the actual writing credit went to fellow Marvel…

  • What We Do in the Shadows

    What We Do in the Shadows

    ★★★★

    Shorty!

    I love vampire movies as a whole, even though the genre can get stale and hasn't had the best reputation since Twilight. But dating back a hundred years filmmakers have been tinkering with and spoofing the foundation built by Bram Stocker, from Nosferatu to The Lost Boys. And What We Do in the Shadows is a fantastic edition that puts a modern comedic spin on the rules of vampirism, as well as raising questions of how people hundreds of…

  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★½

    To say No Way Home has been the biggest movie of the pandemic is also the biggest understatement of the pandemic. People have been hyping and theorizing about No Way Home since before the first trailer dropped. And when any kind of footage was leaked, fanboys dissented it more than the Zapruder tape. Would there be a multiverse crossover? Would we get a return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in the greatest team up in MCU history? Then the…

  • Gymkata

    Gymkata

    ★★★★

    The fact that this was from the same producer and director of Enter the Dragon, one of the most influential martial arts movies of all time, is mind-boggling. Don't get me wrong, Gymkata is its own special kind of awesome, but it's so wildly dated and misguided that only the finest lines of coke could have come up with such a concept.

    Two things become painfully obvious watching Gymkata: one, Kurt Thomas, despite his impressive athleticism, wasn't built to be…

  • Vampirella

    Vampirella

    ★★★★½

    Shorty!

    Okay so here's the story: Kitana from Mortal Kombat is chasing the lead singer of The Who to earth after he kills The Tall Man from Phantasm. She misses her mark, however, and is found on Mars in a cryogenic sleep by John Landis and the Deathstalker (the second one). On Earth, she meets up with a fan insert of Forrest J. Ackerman as a horny teenager and finds out that Roger Daltrey is doing what he was born…

  • Eraserhead

    Eraserhead

    ★★★★

    Shorty!

    There's a lot to say about Eraserhead that I'm too mentally exhausted to dive into. Suffice it to say, yes, it's an impressive movie. It perfectly encapsulates the struggles of unexpected pregnancy and single parenthood in a way no movie ever has before or since. The black and white cinematography is bold, the sound mixing compliments the horrific visuals perfectly, and the imagery is equally as unsettling as it is upsetting. And it's the constant barrage of horrific images…

  • mid90s

    mid90s

    ★★★★½

    Shorty!

    A beautiful and raw portrayal of the confusion of youth, the struggles of family, and the importance of friendship and looking past the rough exterior of people.
