Underwater (Digital HD Review)

While we haven’t had a movie in the theater for a while, Underwater is one that did see one of the earliest releases of the year coming in January. It opened to some “eh” box office and middling reviews, but an appreciation has come from the horror community regarding it and going to bat for […]

Under The Water Things Are Just Kind Of… Eh (Movie Review)

Alright so I went to see Underwater (2020). This film is premiering in the notorious dead time of cinema… January. Reasonably so there was not a lot of buzz generated about this film. The only indication I had about this one coming out was from the invitation I received to come and review the film. Luckily for Underwater (2020) I love […]

Underwater, No One Can Hear You Scream (Movie Review)

In Underwater, Kristen Stewart sinks deep into an abyss, discovering something alien in the process, as in Alien circa 1979. For 93 minutes, this genre pic is precisely the kind of movie that opens at the beginning of the year, for better or worse. Still, I’m a fan of the “small group of scientists who […]

Charlie’s Angels Soars Over Previous Films (Movie Review)

Kristen Stewart goes big in writer/director Elizabeth Banks’ Charlie’s Angels, another reboot/sequel/legacy flick. A solid cast, smart action, and funny jokes keep this by-the-numbers tale on the right track. Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie may have nothing to worry about, but these Angels’ own impossible missions are way more engaging than the generic trailers suggested. […]

‘Billy Lynn’s Long’ Walk Away From Cinema (Movie Review)

In addition to being a talented journeyman director, 2-time Oscar winner Ang Lee has shown a profundity for technical ambition in his films. 2003’s Hulk, flawed as it, could still be considered one of the more ambitiously made superhero films of the modern age.
