Review: THE CONJURING 3 Summons Refreshing But Anticlimactic Entry

(L-r) VERA FARMIGA as Lorraine Warren and PATRICK WILSON as Ed Warren in New Line Cinema’s horror film “THE CONJURING: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It proves Ed and Lorraine Warren can make up for an uneven new chapter in this universe. The eighth entry in The Conjuring Universe decently abandons the haunted house formula but forgets to build on any characters that aren’t our paranormal investigators. Lacking the earned scares the previous… Continue reading Review: THE CONJURING 3 Summons Refreshing But Anticlimactic Entry

Review: THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD Is A Thrilling Adventure

Those Who Wish Me Dead delivers a heartfelt story packed with tons of great action. It’s an effective throwback to older action films but does feel slightly unfocused at times with its narrative. The film is saved by its stellar cast, gripping story, and score that feels like a character itself. Those Who Wish Me Dead may not… Continue reading Review: THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD Is A Thrilling Adventure

Review: JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH Tells Powerful Black Panther Story

Judas and the Black Messiah is a compelling film held together by its phenomenal lead performances and electrifying story. Award recognition is a must for this film because it features career-changing acting, great direction, and is a phenomenal historical outing. A film many could consider appropriate for the current climate in America, Judas and the Black Messiah is… Continue reading Review: JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH Tells Powerful Black Panther Story

Review: THE LITTLE THINGS Shows Little Effort To Impress

The Little Things coast on star power, struggles to leave an impact and takes pleasure in being dull. It’s hard to watch this film without getting thrown off by its odd editing choices and its ability to waste three talented actors. Still, The Little Things is an intriguing film thanks to its three lead stars. Sadly, strong performances… Continue reading Review: THE LITTLE THINGS Shows Little Effort To Impress

Review: WONDER WOMAN 1984 Offers Lackluster Blockbuster

Wonder Woman 1984 is probably the most disappointing superhero film in recent memory. After wondering whether it would be released this year, the film arrived this past Christmas to a divided reception. Wonder Woman 1984 falls short due to its script that spends too much time on the wrong topics. Still, the film isn’t aggressively bad it just… Continue reading Review: WONDER WOMAN 1984 Offers Lackluster Blockbuster

Review: THE WITCHES Can’t Deliver A Lasting Spell

The Witches is a flawed reimagining that will make everyone appreciate the original that much more. It is hard to not compare this film to Nicholas Roeg’s because every flaw draws you back to that magic from thirty years ago. While this telling of The Witches is closer to the source material, it strays into absurdity more than… Continue reading Review: THE WITCHES Can’t Deliver A Lasting Spell

Review: TENET Gives Action-Packed Puzzle

Tenet will warrant head-scratching, multiple re-watches, and a lifetime worth of patience to finally understand the film entirely. Christopher Nolan’s latest sci-fi thriller will do quite a number on the minds of everyone who dares to watch. It’s been said ad nauseam, but Tenet is the most ambitious film to date from the acclaimed director.… Continue reading Review: TENET Gives Action-Packed Puzzle

Box Office Flashback: February – Sweet Revenge, Ghostface Returns, And Tormented Dicaprio

Thirty years ago it was a former cop out for revenge. Ten years later, a horror film within a horror film. And ten years after that, a mind lost within itself

Review: DOCTOR SLEEP Is A Love Letter To The Shining

Mike Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep successfully blends elements of Stephen King’s novels and serves as a proper continuation to Stanley Kubrick’s horror masterpiece, The Shining. Flanagan has been making a name for himself since his successful film Oculus released back in 2013. Now, fresh off last year’s well-received Netflix series The Haunting of Hill House, Flanagan has crafted… Continue reading Review: DOCTOR SLEEP Is A Love Letter To The Shining

Review: JOKER Offers A Fascinating Descent Into Self Destruction

Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck in Warner Bros.' JOKER

Todd Phillips’s Joker has been receiving enormous attention since its debut at the Venice Film Festival earlier this year. The film received critical praise and even took home the Golden Lion for best film. Since then, the feedback has been divisive due to the films violent nature and many believing that it tries to portray villains… Continue reading Review: JOKER Offers A Fascinating Descent Into Self Destruction

Review: THE GOLDFINCH Is A Flawed But Effective Depiction Of Trauma

The Goldfinch, adapted from the best-selling novel of the same name by Donna Tartt, is a film that obviously wants to be more profound than it actually is. However, as a character-driven drama, it works surprisingly well, even if the middle section does go on for a bit too long. The movie traces the story… Continue reading Review: THE GOLDFINCH Is A Flawed But Effective Depiction Of Trauma

Review: IT CHAPTER TWO – The Losers Are All Winners

It Chapter Two is now in theaters, and it’s a thoughtful, emotional, and – most importantly – terrifying conclusion to Stephen King’s epic. It’s been 27 years since the Losers’ Club first took on the evil entity known as Pennywise. Now, “It” has returned, and the gang must return home to Derry to try and… Continue reading Review: IT CHAPTER TWO – The Losers Are All Winners

Review: IT CHAPTER TWO Offers A Messy, Heartwarming, Satisfying Ending

Isaiah Mustafa, Bill Hader, James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, and Jay Ryan in IT CHAPTER TWO

IT Chapter Two is a flawed but effective companion to Warner Bros. 2017 hit horror film. Back in 2017, IT arrived in theaters at a time where 80’s nostalgia was at an all-time high due to the success of Netflix’s hit sci-fi series, Stranger Things. While the film didn’t offer as many references to the 80’s… Continue reading Review: IT CHAPTER TWO Offers A Messy, Heartwarming, Satisfying Ending

Co-written and directed by Gurinder Chadha (Bend it Like Beckham), Blinded by the Light is a new coming-of-age musical set to the iconic music of none other than The Boss, Bruce Springsteen. Both endlessly fun and thoroughly heartwarming, this is the crowd-pleasing film we need during a sea of blockbusters. Although the story of the… Continue reading Review: BLINDED BY THE LIGHT Was Born To Run Into Our Hearts

Review: THE KITCHEN Isn’t Serving Up Anything Special

Based on the Vertigo comic books of the same name, The Kitchen is a new crime drama from a unique female perspective. Unfortunately, the novelty of having a female-led gangster movie is pretty much all this film has to offer, as otherwise, it is a predictable exercise in trying to revitalize a worn genre with… Continue reading Review: THE KITCHEN Isn’t Serving Up Anything Special

Review: THE KITCHEN Needs A Little Remodeling, But It’s Still Watchable

Mellissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish in THE KITCHEN

The Kitchen has several good elements that aren’t put together in the best manner. Andrea Berloff, who co-wrote Straight Outta Compton, makes her directional debut here. Sadly, this late 1970’s crime thriller feels like it never goes anywhere. Based on the DC Vertigo comic book miniseries, The Kitchen follows Claire, Kathy, and Ruby, the wives of… Continue reading Review: THE KITCHEN Needs A Little Remodeling, But It’s Still Watchable

Review: ANNABELLE COMES HOME Should Have Stayed Locked Away

Annabelle Comes Home, the seventh film in the massively popular Conjuring universe and the third focusing on the eponymous creepy doll, hits theaters this week hoping to scare fans yet again. Unfortunately, the series seems to be continuing on its downward trend, as the movie is unable to live up to its tremendous potential. In… Continue reading Review: ANNABELLE COMES HOME Should Have Stayed Locked Away
