“Blackbird” Mostly Wastes A Wonderful Cast

A great cast can paper over a lot of issues. Watching talented actors and actresses at work is part of the main charm of the gift that is cinema. However, even the best thespians can’t make up for a script that just doesn’t give them much to do. Likewise with[...]

Alexandra Daddario Gives A Brave And Stirring Performance In “Lost Girls & Love Hotels”

Watching a character make poor choices can be a trying experience, depending on the genre at hand. Seeing this in a comedy? Potentially hilarious. Observing similar acts in a drama? Quite possibly heartbreaking. The new drama Lost Girls & Love Hotels comes very close to going too far over the[...]

“The Way I See It” Is A Quietly Powerful Reminder Of A Different Kind Of President

Photographing a President is about as apolitical a job as it gets. At least, that’s how it traditionally was. For Pete Souza, he was simply a photojournalist, albeit one of the most respected ones in the political sphere, until the most recent election, that is. This transformation, as well as[...]

Haley Lu Richardson Shines In “Unpregnant,” Which Deftly Mixes Road Trip Comedy And Righteous Anger

It’s impossible to watch Haley Lu Richardson and not see that she’s a star in the making. She just has that “it factor” about her. In a fairly short period of time, she’s established herself as someone to really watch. Richardson is rarely given starring roles, so far at least,[...]

“The Social Dilemma” Presents Interesting Questions In A Puzzling Manner

It’s no secret that social media has left an indelible mark on the world. Whether it’s more of a positive or a negative mark depends on who you are and how you view its impact. The new documentary, The Social Dilemma, certainly is of the opinion that it’s doing major[...]

“Nail In The Coffin: The Fall And Rise Of Vampiro” Follows The Redemption Of A Potentially Tragic Figure

Pro wrestlers often lead tragic lives. That’s just sort of baked into the cake of professional wrestling. The athletes live hard, indulge often times in various substances, and simply don’t have a particularly long life expectancy. Those who live to be old men and women are in the minority. Even[...]

“The Argument” Masks Its Creativity Before Embracing Its Weirdness

For a significant portion of the The Argument’s running time, there’s a sense of waiting for the other shoe to drop. The set up for the film isn’t particularly strong, and all throughout the first act, it’s hard not to feel like the production is going through the motion. It[...]

“Mulan” Comes Vividly To Life For Disney

When a live-action remake of Mulan was announced by Disney, there was a mix of excitement and trepidation. On the one hand, the epic feel of the story and the battle sequences were tailor made for the blockbuster treatment. On the other hand, however, would it feel different? After all,[...]

“Feels Good Man” Showcases The Danger And Power Of Internet Culture Run Amok

When you think about Pepe the Frog, what comes to mind? In all likelihood, it’s either something tied to an internet meme, or more recently, the alt-right political movement. For many, that’s the only thing that they’ve been exposed to, in regards to the cartoon frog. However, the drawing began[...]

“I’m Thinking Of Ending Things” Is A Challenging Journey Into Charlie Kaufman’s Concerns

Charlie Kaufman is unlike any other creative force in the business. One only needs to look at his resume and you’ll see, both as a writer as well as a director, that he’s a singular talent. He sees the world, and interprets it as art, like no one else. At[...]
