Movie Review: The Fare (2019)

The Fare starts as your standard “Groundhog Day” fare (pun entirely intended). Every time cab driver Harris (Gino Anthony Pesi, “42”) hits his lever, he is thrust into another 20-minute time loop. Every time, he picks up Penny (Brinna Kelly, “The Midnight Man”), drives awhile, and then she vanishes and it begins again. What in…

Movie Review: Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

Here we go again. This is a phrase that can be uttered (silently, out of respect to fellow viewers) to many aspects of Terminator: Dark Fate. Sometimes it may be uttered with glee, other times with impatience or even exasperation. On the one hand, it demonstrates the continued appeal of James Cameron’s original creation. On…

Movie Review: Ad Astra (2019)

Director James Gray, whose last film, “The Lost City of Z,” garnered serious praise upon release in 2016, has continued his win streak in the exploratory sci-fi film Ad Astra, the Latin phrase for “to the stars.” This Brad Pitt vehicle stands as a powerful character study within a plausible near-future universe, with a hefty…

With a crisp sci-fi world of equal parts whimsy and despair, this feminist fairy tale has all of the looks of something remarkable, but lacks the proper…

Other strange things soon begin happening in Bacurau, winner…

Movie Review: Portals (2019)

“Well, the doctor interrupted me just about then, Sayin, ‘Hey I’ve been havin’ the same old dreams, But mine was a little different you see. I dreamt that the only person left after the war was me. I didn’t see you around.’” — Bob Dylan, “Talking World War III Blues” Portals begins with a white…

Movie Review: Auggie (2019)

A man, semi-forced into an early retirement, receives a gift from his former staff in the form of virtual reality glasses. Not just ordinary Oculus-type glasses but rather augmented-reality specs with a personal assistant named Auggie that only the wearer can see. The man comes to bond with his Auggie in ways that both enable…
