‘John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum’ may not be the best of the bunch but the insanely frantic action sequences make up for an overabundance of exposition.

‘The Intruder’ won’t be confused with one of the classic thrillers but thanks to a monster performance from Dennis Quaid its a fun, even if forgettable ride.

[Rating: Swiss Fist] The only thing I really took away from Teen Spirit, is that Elle Fanning is a hell of an actress and has an incredible voice. If the script matched her passion, she’d be staring at a possible Academy Award nomination. But as it is, the indie musical drama from writer and director […]

The hours and days you’ll spend trying to make sense of anything you’ve seen in this movie could be enough to make you insane if you’re not strong enough to endure the ridiculously inept sequence of events that unfold once the […]

Thankfully, someone green-lit Happy Death Day 2 […]

[Rating: Minor Rock Fist Up]Steven Soderbergh‘s latest iPhone feature film, High Flying Bird, plays like Jerry Maguire on moprhine, as it goes behind the scenes into the high-tension world of professional basketball owner-player negotiations during a labor dispute. It’s a decent flick, if at times slow, that survives thanks to a decent script and a […]

[Rating: Minor Rock Fist Up] The body-horror movie Piercing lives up to its name both figuratively and literally. It opens with one of the most shocking images one could think of—Reed, a father, holding an ice pick above his baby—and it’s a fair warning for what the viewer can expect from there. To fend off […]

‘Cold War’ is a gorgeously shot, ill-fated yet passionate sweeping romance set against the harsh back drop of 1950s post-war Europe.

‘Hearts Beat Loud’ is a candid, sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking look at what it’s like to grow up as a young woman when you’ve lost your mother and your father hasn’t regained the emotional strength to move on.
