Movie Review: Ready Player One (2018)

Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One is nothing short of biblical for the pop culture enthusiast. More surprisingly, however, is the engaging narrative and even the likable cast of (young) characters. The expensive movie ran Warner Bros. $175 million, but Spielberg’s project does reap the benefits of that expense — with stellar CGI and a virtual…

Movie Review: Thoroughbreds (2017)

Thoroughbreds has completely reinvented the concept of a haunted mansion, having mercifully put the former out to pasture and out of its misery.

Movie Trailer: The Quiet Ones (2014)

If ever you find yourself asked to participate in an experiment in which the goal is to summon an angry spirit from bad energy derived from an emotionally broken child, run away. I assure no good can come of it. It’s really too bad then that the students in Lionsgate’s The Quiet Ones were never…
