“Marriage Story” Is Devastating And Noah Baumbach’s Best Film To Date

Nobody handles a couple breaking up quite like Noah Baumbach. Going back to The Squid and the Whale, the filmmaker depicted marriage and divorce with a razor sharp eye for detail. Now, he’s back in that realm with his best work to date in Marriage Story. The movie is absolutely[...]

Shia LaBeouf Digs Deep To Make “Honey Boy” An Impressive And Cathartic Experience

It takes real courage to put your life, warts and all, out there on display like Shia LaBeouf is willing to do in Honey Boy. Willing to go all in, LaBeouf has penned a biographical drama that will almost certainly make you look at him in a different way. That[...]

Ethan Hawke Stuns In The Tender “Adopt A Highway”

What a beautiful little surprise Adopt a Highway turns out to be. This Ethan Hawke star vehicle is tender, touching, and altogether a moving experience.

Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” Is A Modern Classic From The Master

We bow down before the artist that is Martin Scorsese. No one makes a crime film like him, and no one has tried to make one quite like this. Yes, as much as The Irishman is an event due to Scorsese reuniting with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci (among[...]

“Motherless Brooklyn” Is A Meandering Misfire From Edward Norton

There’s an admirable quality to the earnestness with which Edward Norton has tackled this adaptation of Motherless Brooklyn. A supposedly unfilmable novel, Norton has opted to make it his sophomore directorial outing. Bold move. Unfortunately, also a bit of folly on his part. For numerous reasons, this is a big[...]

“Terminator: Dark Fate” Returns To What Made The Franchise Work

For decades, the Terminator franchise has opted to largely make Arnold Schwarzenegger its central aspect/selling point. However, since The Terminator and especially Terminator 2: Judgment Day, the series has had severely diminishing returns. So, changes were needed. Original creator James Cameron is back to help shepherd this latest sequel, which[...]
