2021 Movie Reviews: Antebellum/The Kid Detective/Minari/Music/Nomadland

Sorry I missed last week, but here are five for you. Antebellum Extremely problematic and incompetent Get Out rip-off that proves really grueling to watch. The characters are underwritten, the plot is extremely confusing and it’s so on-the-nose with everything it makes me long for the smooth subtlety of Step Up 3D. If you’re goingContinue reading “2021 Movie Reviews: Antebellum/The Kid Detective/Minari/Music/Nomadland”

2021 Reviews: Freaky/Judas and the Black Messiah/Saint Maud

Back for another round of reviews. Freaky Filmmaker Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day, Happy Death Day 2U) returns for another teen horror riff on a classic movie formula, this time setting his sights on Freaky Friday.

2021 Movie Reviews: Earwig and the Witch/The Little Things/Malcolm and Marie

It’s 2021 and I’m finally reviewing movies from 2021! Strangely enough, these films are all eligible for this March’s Oscars though I wouldn’t give any of them an Oscar nomination. WHOOPS! SPOILER ALERT – I hated all three of these movies. Earwig and the Witch It’s been six years since Studio Ghibli released its lastContinue reading “2021 Movie Reviews: Earwig and the Witch/The Little Things/Malcolm and Marie”

Franchise with Me: Step Up w/ Audrey Farnsworth

Step Up is a real wild ride of a franchise that starts off with a simple, incompetent teen dance movie and transforms into this almost mock-action franchise. In the later installments, there’s so many elaborate dance sequences that are happening so fast and so in your face, you’d think you were watching The Raid. IfContinue reading “Franchise with Me: Step Up w/ Audrey Farnsworth”

2020 Reviews: Kajillionaire/Tenet/The Trial of the Chicago 7

Yes, I know it’s 2021, but these are all movies from 2020. Going forward these reviews are going to be a mixture of 2020 stragglers and new 2021 releases, at least until the first quarter of the year is up. Once a 2021 movie enters the stratosphere of these reviews, the title will change toContinue reading “2020 Reviews: Kajillionaire/Tenet/The Trial of the Chicago 7”

2020 Movie Reviews: Another Round/Bacurau/Wonder Woman 1984

With Covid-19 and everything, it’s easy to forget new movies are still being released and while the current stress of the situation has driven me to plunge into the home-y comforts of classic movies I’ve seen a jillion times, I took some time this past weekend to catch three 2020 releases. Another Round Essentially aContinue reading “2020 Movie Reviews: Another Round/Bacurau/Wonder Woman 1984”
