Let’s Not Play

Come Play had potential with its idea (and a surprisingly decent depiction of autism). Instead of leaning into those unique aspects it pulls too many familiar plots from other horror...

A Dazzling Adventure With a Lot of Heart

Wonder Woman 1984 is pure delight and even though most of us will be unable to enjoy it in theaters (where I’m sure it would look amazing), it shouldn’t be...

High Tension Disaster Film With a Lot of Heart

Greenland wasn’t the action-filled disaster movie I was expecting, but it was definitely better than the simple popcorn flick most turn out to be. By keeping the focus on the...

Plenty of Action, But Little Else

Ip Man: Master of Kung Fu has the premise for an interesting story, telling a little known faucet of the iconic Martial Artist’s life. It’s disjointed approach to telling that...

A Refreshing New Way to Enjoy the Story of Dune

While part of me wishes this was a bit more than a scene-by-scene adaptation, I can’t argue with the results. Even though I’ve read the novel again within the past...

An Impressive Port, With a Wealth of Content

I was cautiously optimistic going into this game on the Switch. Management sims on consoles can be hit or miss, but Frontier Developments absolutely nailed this one. On top of...

A Stellar Combination of Heart, Humor, and Action

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Love and Monsters, but I came away thoroughly impressed and wanting more. It features impressive action that can appease monster movie fans, an...

Equal parts hilarious and serious, The Wolf of Snow Hollow masterfully brings together a menagerie of genres for one hell of a ride. With excellent performances, great writing, and some...

Interesting Ideas That Don't Go Far Enough

On the whole, I won’t say that Black Box is a bad movie. It’s held together competently by a debut director and anchored by a cast, and characters, I found...
