    Zack Snyder's Justice League


    Justice is FINALLY served.

    This one really means a lot to me.

    I was one of those nerds who clamored for a director鈥檚 cut the moment I walked out of my screening and I signed the now-famous petition that started it all. On a related note: God bless Roberto Mata (a fellow Puerto Rican making me proud!) for putting this into motion. It鈥檚 nothing short of remarkable that this came to fruition and, as both a lifelong DC fan and鈥

    It's a Sin


    I'm absolutely devastated.

    So many thoughts are running through my head after watching this. It is, without a doubt, the most painful story I've seen in a good while.

    I'm reminded of the privilege of having been able to see star Olly Alexander's band Years & Years (one of my favorites) live in concert a short while before this pandemic changed everything. I feel so very lucky for that privilege and not just because of it being a precious opportunity that鈥

  • Greenland



    Why are disaster movies so comforting?

    The series of unfortunate mistakes (most of them made by Gerard Butler's protagonist, LOL) that comprise 'GREENLAND' are a doozy to experience. It's nothing you haven't seen before but director Ric Roman Waugh really gets how to make the events of his doomsday epic feel like they matter in the reliably reassuring manner that the best apocalyptic crowd-pleasers do. It works despite the smattering of even more unfortunate CGI mixed throughout it. It may鈥

  • Tom Clancy's Without Remorse

    Tom Clancy's Without Remorse


    Michael B. Jordan is simply too built to ignore this one, guys. Muscle-ogling aside, Jordan is a good lead doing solid work in an otherwise samey Clancy flick. I loved Jodie Turner-Smith in this enough to wish she got her own movie. And I would rather watch this again than another season of that woefully miscast yawn-inducing 'JACK RYAN' series. Bonus points for some sharp action and the cleverness of the elemental parallels it presents. Plus, it's never boring, which, you know, is really appreciated.

  • Vampires vs. the Bronx

    Vampires vs. the Bronx


    Wholesome Latino and Black representation in a horror film. We love to see it!

    Vampires vs. the Bronx is much more than the latest Netflix flavor of the week. In it's modest way, this mainstream-friendly vamp-hunting jaunt is a big deal, not only because it is led by a trio of adorable kids who happen to be people of color, but because it also manages to imbue a dusty genre mainstay with a vitally urgent message that is very much鈥

    2000-On: Original Sci-Fi Stories

    Dylan O'Brien? More like Dylan O'My-God-I-Didn't-Realize-How-Much-I-Needed-You-During-This-Pandemic-ien

    Hope and optimism are in short supply these days and when someone embodies them as saliently as the ever-lovable lead of Love and Monsters does, it's akin to finding treasure buried in your yard. Okay, maybe it's not exactly like that but when you're constantly bombarded by bleak societal forecasts courtesy of all too real monsters (whether they be spray-tanned or pathogenic), bright, mood-boosting actors like O'Brien in bright, mood-boosting鈥
