This year has provided ample opportunity for filmmakers to put together features tackling various social issues entertainingly or intriguingly, while also opening up further discussion. Suburbicon is not one of them. This George Clooney-directed misfire wastes ample opportunity to do more with its overt symbolism by embedding a predictable and mostly unfunny crime caper in […]

Request To Close Down The ‘Tomorrowland’ Attraction (Movie Review)

Let the record show that I had zero interest in ever seeing Tomorrowland.  The various trailers and TV spots did little to interest in me in the film and worst, it reminded me of that God awful Jupiter Ascending piece of garbage )and that is being polite).  There’s no way I ever want to revisit […]
