Beyond White Space (2018)

For whatever reason, this last Friday I came home with a hankering to watch Alien 3 (1992), so my fiancé and I got comfy and fired up the Assembly Cut of the notoriously troubled flick. As the highly flawed but still worthy entry played out, she picked out a young Holt McCallany (Fight Club) among […]

Joker (2019)

  Let’s just get it out of the way now – The character of Batman’s nemesis ‘The Joker’ is iconic, made all the more so by some of the impressive talent that’s portrayed him over the years, going back to Jack Nicholson’s energetic turn back in ’89 (Cesar Romero has no part of this discussion), […]

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

I must confess that, as an admitted fan of well-crafted ‘Westerns’…I’ve never seen the original 1960 version of this flick. I’ve always known about it, it just never presented itself at a time when I could check it out. It was one of those ones that I was sure I would EVENTUALLY catch up with. […]

31 (2016)

As I’ve told friends in the past, I have a love / hate relationship with the vast majority of Rob Zombie’s filmography. On one hand, I think the shock rocker has undeniable talent behind the camera. He knows how to compose a shot and edit a sequence, and he’s proven very adept to toiling in […]

John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum (2019)

If they’re smart…they’ll stop here. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the John Wick series, going back to the out-of-the-blue original way back in 2014. It started off as a strangely charming but brutally violent comic-come-to-life and, due in large part to the dedication and physicality of unlikely leading man Keanu Reeves as the titular assassin-pulled-from-retirement, it quickly caught […]

Avengers: Endgame (2019)

I NEARLY didn’t bother writing a review for this one, as I guarantee large chunks will sound just like the other mostly glowing Marvel Cinematic Universe reviews I’ve written over the years. But… Being that this is the cap-off to the most successful superhero franchise EVER…and just a damn well crafted flick, I HAD to […]

A Revisit: Red Dawn (1984)

Full Disclosure: Operating outside of my usual format…I’ve seen Red Dawn many times over the years, so this is not a kneejerkreaction in my usual sense. That being said, my initial reaction, going WAY back through the mists of time, still sticks with me, and compels me to scribble some scribbles about this unique product of […]

Captive State (2019)

I like surprises…usually. And today I felt like I needed a surprise, something unexpected, so out of the two most intriguing flicks on The Big Screen right now, this and Marvel’s…er…Captain Marvel, I went with this one. Now despite my own admitted superhero fatigue, I do still like me a good Marvel flick. With only […]
