Movie Review: Nancy (2018)

Poor Nancy, life is a drudge without any hope of things ever picking up; an aspiring writer who receives endless rejection letters she is also a loner yearning for human contact who can only find company in the form of her trusty ginger cat (the ironically human named) Paul. Nancy is in a rut, both…

Movie Review: Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! (2017)

Who fancies a chicken sandwich? Would you like it grilled? Fried? Crispy? Imagine that fresh-looking white meat, that crunchy coating, the mayonnaise and lettuce, the bun that is just moist enough without being soggy. Delicious, right?

Movie Review: Daniel Isn’t Real (2019)

A mixture of harsh industrial sounds and dreamier synth beats power into the room as neon shapes move kaleidoscope-like before our eyes.

The man comes to bond with his Auggie in ways that both enable…

A reasonable question many people may raise regarding Sobibor, a feature film about the Holocaust in general, and about a particular concentration camp, in particular, is what can it add to our understanding of the nature of the “final solution” by those that perpetrated it, and those that fell victim to it? It’s true that…

Movie Review: Buffalo Boys (2018)

Cultures and genres clash cutely enough in Mike Wiluan’s east/west mashup Buffalo Boys, an action pic that’s high on energy and low on originality. Make of that what you will, but considering the aim appears to be a sort of genre refresher, it’s easy to feel an aura of missed opportunities when the story proves…
