    Obi-Wan Kenobi

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I have a lot of thoughts about this.

    The Star Wars prequels are as entwined with my richest childhood film memories as they could possibly be. I adore them just as I've adored Ewan McGregor's Kenobi since I first met him when I sat in a theater watching 'Phantom Menace' more than 20 years ago.

    Up until this new era of relentlessly exploring every possible franchise spinoff option, I never thought we'd be gifted more time with the beloved, charming,…

  • The Black Phone

    The Black Phone

    ★★★★

    Hope is a remarkable thing. Even a flicker of it, appearing right when you most need it, can mean everything. In that flicker is a possibility and if you hold onto that possibility, it can become a roaring flame untempered by the darkest hopelessness around it.

    'The Black Phone', bleak as it appears to be, is every bit a fiercely hopeful film. Shrouded in menace and continually reminiscent of the modern horrors endured by children in places where their safety…

    The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy

    ★★★½

    Incredibly soft, easy to kick back with, and authentic to the queer experience, Greg Berlanti's 'Broken Hearts Club' is, somehow, a hidden gem. Beyond its frank, optimistic portrayal of life as a gay man in America at the turn of the millennium, there isn't anything particularly remarkable about Berlanti's debut feature. That however, in and of itself, is a pretty remarkable thing for a film that feels as mainstream as they come despite its very unapolagetically queer storytelling. I can't…

  • Crimes of the Future

    Crimes of the Future

    ★★★½

    Decidedly of the present, David Cronenberg's latest ghoulish descent into the pit of the basest essence of "humanity" is a provocative, obtuse, and labyrinthine exploration of body autonomy as vice. As a gross, disturbing vision, 'Crimes of the Future' is a fine return to form for Cronenberg who once again delights in presenting a world where our enmeshing with technology has led us into the land of mundane depravity. That the director has delved into similar areas before doesn't detract…

    Vampires vs. the Bronx

    ★★★½

    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…

    Psycho Goreman

    ★★

    Folks, meet the single most annoying character of the 21st century. No, I'm not referring to the titular monster but to his captor, a little girl who will make you beg for the sweet relief of total annihilation mere moments after meeting her. I'm calling it now, everyone else can go home. Mimi is the most obnoxiously spoiled brat you'll ever know and boy does she spoil what could've been silly divertive fun. She is the bane of anyone who…
