This new series of Star Trek films should ideally have been my gateway into getting a better feel for the series. The J.J. Abrams films were not without merit, but even with a changing of hands to director Justin Lin, I seem to still be largely unmoved by what this franchise has to offer. The […]

‘Zootopia’ Presents Profound Discourse In A Fun Family Film (Movie Review)

Here’s a simple claim right off the bat – Zootopia is a true triumph for Disney. The animation studio has had something of a resurgence in recent years with films such as Frozen and Big Hero 6, but Zootopia feels like an actual classic. That is high praise for the Mouse House, but the balance […]

MVFF Review: Second Coming

Watching the first 99% of Second Coming is a somewhat pleasant experience. The cinematography is beautiful, with some excellent, tense long takes and a tight, cramped focus in a small apartment that accentuates the intensity of the lives of the three main characters. The performances are strong and full of passion or subtle and full […]

No Good Deed (Blu-ray Review)

The poster for this dull home invasion thriller states, “From the Producers of Obsessed,” which gives a pretty good idea of what anyone is getting into with No Good Deed.  I say that meaning the viewer is either aware Obsessed was a really bad, trashy-type thriller or that they don’t even know the movie being […]
