• The Kid Brother

    The Kid Brother

    ★★★

    Harold Lloyd's continues his geek-chic revolution ensuring that every nerdy character must be the runt of the liter and have very poor eyesight. A fun and simple story of familial bonding, love at first sight, and riverboat pirates.

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★

    Robert Eggers' Norse Hamlet is a tale of brutal vengeance served on a cold plate of mysticism and savagery. The camera is not one that revels in bloodshed but doesn't shy from it either. We slowly meander through chaos and severed limbs, methodically but calmly tracking Amleth The Bear Wolf's path from prey to predator.

    Eggers continues his cinematic quest, ever interested in outcasts trapped in an unforgiving world. His previous films have focused on the religious persecution of THE…

  • Uncharted

    Uncharted

    ★★½

    I suppose it could have been worse but honestly wouldn't mind just queueing up a youtube playlist of UNCHARTED videogame cutscenes.

  • The Bad Guys

    The Bad Guys

    ★★★

    Art inspired by INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE. Story inspired by OCEAN'S ELEVEN. Piranhas and sharks inspiring the world because they evidently don't need water to survive?! Bold choices all around.

  • Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn

    Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn

    ★★★½

    Supposedly I saw the censored version on hulu. The sex scenes are engulfed by huge, colorful censor cards slapped across the screen with "pay to watch" alerts emboldened in Comic Sans. Sorry, all you little perverts but this is high comedy and the preferred way to watch this film.

    An odd little story in 3 parts. Chapter one provides a smattering of exposition filled with the aimless, needless wandering of a bustling city. Chapter two churns out a PowerPoint presentation…

  • Def by Temptation

    Def by Temptation

    ★★★½

    The power of Christ impales you.

    A cool little horror flick from one-time director and former kid actor James Bond III. The tale of a street-savvy succubus with Ernest Dickerson behind the camera, a slew of Spike Lee alum peppering the screen, plus your daily reminder that Kadeem Hardison should have been a much bigger star.

  • Jackass Forever

    Jackass Forever

    ★★★½

    "This ain’t a Mensa convention". Please don't change.

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★

    Makes you wonder if there’s one universe in which Strange doesn’t have a silly, little goatee.

    This was the first movie post-Infinity Saga that I was most intrigued by. It looked (at least by name alone) to have the most potential to showcase a brave new MCU world. LOKI was a great introduction displaying the limitless potential of a cinematic multiverse. Tangential realities and timey-wimey weirdness seemed like a great way to shake things up and deliver next-level absurdity to…

  • The Beast of War

    The Beast of War

    ★★★½

    ENEMY YOURS MINE AND OURS

    The poignancy of THE BEAST OF WAR has big 'Russian tank gets lost while invading a foreign country energy'. Some things never change.

    Running low on fumes and high on blind nationalism, a Kurtz-like tank commander goes toe-to-toe with Jason Patric and the Mujahadeen in a completely solid and surprisingly underrated war flick.

  • Gregory's Girl

    Gregory's Girl

    ★★★½

    "Hard work being in love, eh? Especially when you don't know which girl it is."

    Silly, relatable, painful, affable, charming little story of a dumb boy in dumb love.

  • Polar Bear

    Polar Bear

    ★★★

    This is a movie about polar bears. It is what we thought it was.

  • Money Movers

    Money Movers

    ★★★★

    The Taking of Darcy's 123.

    MONEY MOVERS is a heist flick that feels like a stripped-down Michael Mann procedural with a bit of that genuine DIY Aussie exuberance. It's a movie of inside men, corrupt cops, crime bosses, and big money business all slow-boiled together until the kinetic heist finale throws everything in the pressure cooker and waits for the bullets to fly.
