A Review of "Synchronic"

A Review of "Mank"
December 10, 2020

Before turning on “Mank”, several thoughts flew through my head: This is David Fincher’s first movie in six years. It has Gary Oldman. It’s black-and-white. This has to be good. Right? “Mank”...

October 27, 2020

Back in January, when I compiled my list of the Best Movies of 2019, I expressed my hope that 2020 would be a better year. I was wrong. 2020 has been one life-altering disaster after the other, and at...

A Review of "Dolittle"
February 20, 2020

Normally, I would say that after a month of Oscars hopefuls and massive blockbusters, it’s nice to start the year off with a sub-par movie. This is the one year that doesn’t quite fit that bill, it...

Review of “Midway”
December 9, 2019

For a war movie coming out on the weekend of Veterans Day, a day reserved for paying respect to the brave men and women who fought and died for our freedom, it’s not too much to ask for the movie to...

Frustratingly Dull Action Movie

Review of Gemini Man
November 4, 2019

Just a few days ago, I thought about how lucky I had been to finally see some good movies as 2019 began to draw to a close. To be completely honest, I wish I hadn’t said that. Why? Because Gemini Man...
