Movie Review: London Fields (2018)

One of the main aims of a whodunnit mystery movie is to ensure that the audience doesn’t guess who done it, so by that metric, London Fields misses its mark entirely. It’s the rare movie that plays its cards so early that anyone paying even a sliver of attention during the first two minutes can…

Movie Review: Bad Santa 2 (2016)

Oh boy. There’s nothing quite as middling or eyebrow-raising as a belated sequel, is there? 2003’s “Bad Santa” was a morbid, distasteful, apathetic middle-finger to more warm and fuzzy, politically correct holiday ventures and I absolutely love it.

It’s the good, the bad, and the catty in Chris Miller’s Puss in Boots, the first action-packed spinoff of the Shrek series, and to the surprise of many, it not only provides viewers a much needed history lesson by explaining how everyone’s favorite swashbuckling orange tabby came to be the legend he is today, but…

Movie Trailer #2: Puss in Boots (2011)

The second, and last, theatrical trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s Puss in Boots has made its way to the web. In this origin story, the swashbuckling Puss in Boots goes on a quest for the Goose that lays the Golden Egg with new characters Humpty Dumpty and Kitty Softpaws. Along the way, expect many kid and…
