Movie Review: Liam Gallagher: As It Was (2019)

If you haven’t heard of Liam Gallagher, previously of the band Oasis, then you must have been hiding under the largest rock imaginable. He and his brother Noel, were the catalyst behind the incredibly successful band, that is until it all came to a screeching halt ten years ago, traced back to a fateful 2009…

Movie Review: Burn (2019)

Mike Gan’s Burn joins all those movies that exist solely in one location, movies like “Panic Room,” “Phone Booth” and “Grand Piano.” The greatest challenge with movies like this is that much of its success depends on the main protagonist. They need to carry the movie and compel our attention, since cinematography doesn’t play much…

Movie Review: Changeland (2019)

For a film with a tantalizing title like Velvet Buzzsaw, it sure is disappointing. What a shame. The talented cast, with the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal (“Stronger”), Rene Russo (“Thor:The Dark World”), Toni Collette (“Hereditary”) and a criminally underutilized John Malkovich (“Warm Bodies”), try their best to salvage the poorly thought-out narrative. However, it is…
