Men in Black: International

The Men in Black franchise has thus far subsisted on wacky tongue-in-cheek humor, sci-fi shenanigans, and the charisma between its opposite-attracts stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. But what happens when you bring in an entirely new set of actors?

SHAFT 2019

Samuel L. Jackson returns as John Shaft in the movie Shaft, the sequel to his 2000 movie Shaft, based on the original 1971 movie Shaft which starred Richard Roundtree as John Shaft. Ya following me so far? Roundtree’s original 3 movies had Shaft taking on the Mafia, human traffickers, assassins, and locating some hidden cash to the sum of $250,000. Hey, it’s the 1970’s, that was a LOT of money back then. Samuel Jackson took on the role of the original Shafts son. Jackson had to have been the best choice to play the character, he certainly had the attitude for it. Shaft has always been that badass, take charge ladies man with the best soundtrack and plenty of bad guys to bust up.

And then the robbery comes, and no better than these boys, the film runs it for frills. Slow-Mo on their costumed entrance (In their disguises these apes are interchangeable). Cue...

Hereditary

Horror always aims to exploit its audience. But not in the way Hereditary wants to exploit you. It needs you hurt, and it wants you perturbed. You believe it does,...

You probably haven’t seen an anthology like this. This well made. This considered.

Unlovable

This film has something sincere to explore, something untold by this form and undone in this way. It’s the sunny flipside to McQueen’s self-serious “Shame” in which characters brood under...

Loveless

This deluge of cynicism, broadened to encompass everyone in Loveless, diluted whatever truth Leviathan would have had. It works in this case because a primordial story’s lent to the attitude,...
