Movie Review: Robert the Bruce (2019)

A nominal sequel to Mel Gibson’s 1995 epic “Braveheart” sounds thrilling all around — bringing viewers back to Scotland’s bloody medieval war cry against the brute, Edward Longshanks of England. Enter Robert the Bruce. In it, Angus Macfadyen (“The Lost City of Z”) also reprises his role as Scottish freedom fighter, Robert the Bruce. Yes,…

Movie Review: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

No doubt, Disney and Lucasfilm were faced with a monumental task by ending the Skywalker saga — the ninth film in a franchise that changed the course of filmmaking and introduced generations of viewers to freewheeling, space-opera arcs and settings. Inherent in that task: The risk of polarizing a temperamental fan base and bookending “Star…

Movie Review: The Kill Team (2019)

In the opening minutes of The Kill Team, we see brief glimpses of optimism, national pride, and infantry brotherhood from our titular platoon of soldiers — all of which ends up shattered well before the ten-minute mark as the horrors of wartime and their effect on those involved make themselves abruptly known.

Despite these cinematic feats, he perhaps has never helmed a project as significant as his 2018 documentary, They Shall Not Grow Old. The…

Movie Trailer: Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

After the good fight Godzilla put up in “Godzilla” fighting the pair of M.U.T.O.s, you’d think humanity would take a step back and reprioritize a few things. That, unfortunately, didn’t happen as the latest trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters shows. Now we’ve got to contend with Mothra, Rodan, Godzilla and one of their…

Movie Trailer: Captain Marvel (2019)

Skrulls. Kree. Oh my! Earth being stuck in the middle of two alien races doing battle is bad, but adding Ronan the Destroyer (remember him from “Guardians of the Galaxy”?) into the mix makes the situation even worse. Luckily, we have Captain Marvel around to keep the fray from causing our untimely destruction. The film,…
