Movie Review: Tenet (2020)

Arriving after repeated delays, Tenet has been hailed as the film to save cinema. This is, of course, a completely unfair expectation that no one film could ever hope to achieve. A far more pertinent question is whether or not Christopher Nolan’s latest mind-frying adventure is worth the wait. For this reviewer, the answer is…

Movie Review: Volition (2019)

“My mother died when I was seven years old — car accident. I saw it two months before it happened.” — Jimmy, “Volition” Writer/director Tony Dean Smith introduces us to Jimmy (Adrian Glynn McMorran, “Warcraft”), a small-time criminal blessed with supernatural clairvoyance. Jimmy foresees fragments of his future as a series of acid flashbacks —…

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.

Written and directed by Benson and Moorhead, The Endless is a low-budget psychological drama…

Movie Review: Inoperable (2017)

Christopher Lawrence Chapman’s debut feature, Inoperable, is a horror film about a 30-year-old woman struggling to escape from a half-deserted hospital while “the T-rex of hurricanes” sweeps overhead. The opening titles are like a scratchy throwback to David Fincher’s “Se7en,” and the end credits splash the screen with comic book text. Neither bookend is relevant…

Movie Review: Happy Death Day (2017)

In some ways, Theresa “Tree” Gelbman (Jessica Rothe, “Wolves”) is your average college student. She parties, she drinks, and, at the end of the night, she doesn’t always end up at home. In other ways she’s your average sorority girl (the pathetically one dimensional way sororities are portrayed in movies, at least). She maintains shallow…
