  • Teen Spirit

    Teen Spirit


    Teen Spirit is visually mesmerizing. It’s a strong directorial debut from Max Minghella as he tells this Cinderella story while we all fall in love with Elle Fanning. She does all her own singing and might be a real life pop star. It’s not without it’s cliches but the performance and musical sequences win you over.

  • Little Woods

    Little Woods


    Winters Bone meets Hell or High Water, Little Woods tackles a number of social issues such as the importance of free healthcare, the opioid crisis, and reproductive rights. Tessa Thompson and Lily James are incredible in their sisterly bond. Go see this film it’s playing near you it’s gritty, tense, and moving. Can we get more leading roles for Thompson?

  • Running with Beto

    Running with Beto


    A behind the scenes look at our future president’s campaign to attempt to unseat Senator Ted Cruz. We see get to see the personal side of Beto while he runs his DIY style campaign. Director David Modigliani is able to add narrative tension to a story that we know the outcome of. The issues that are shown are very emotional and heartbreaking but it highlights Beto’s ethics and what he plans to do going forward. Highly recommend once it hits HBO later this month.

    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum


    Kill em all part 3 but with a book.
    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum is the most intense, violent turned-up-to-11, out-of-hand film in the franchise. The action pieces are clear, creative and stomach-turning at times. Stahelski is clearly a master of displaying violence and combat as there’s no one doing it better right now. He knows how to use Keanu Reeves’ strengths as an actor to the films’ advantage, displaying his impressive martial arts and marksmanship skills while on…

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame


    Avengers: Endgame has its fair share of fan service, as it says goodbye to this version of the MCU as we know it. Each character gets their own 15 minutes of fame so to speak and we're reminded of why we've been paying attention for so long. The three-hour run time sounds daunting but the pacing is perfect. It never drags or loses your attention. With so much ground to cover, so many beloved characters all coming together for possibly…

    Long Shot


    This movie is hilarious from start to finish. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel on rom-coms but it’s done well. It’s a refreshing change of pace in a world where a new comic book movie dominates the box office every weekend. Go see this movie.
