    No Time to Die

    ★★★★

    Strap in to your tricked-out Astons guys, this is going to be a long one.

    The person to whom I most owe my lifelong love of cinema is my Dad. As long as I can remember, my Dad has been fostering that love for film. And the greatest connection we’ve shared with a cinematic world is with that of 007. From the day my Dad bought ‘GOLDENEYE’ on VHS and showed it to my eager 6-year-old eyes through seeing every…

  • Midnight Mass

    Midnight Mass

    ★★★★★

    “Suffering can be a gift. It all just depends on us. What we do with it, how we react to it.”

    Truly, in every way, electrifying.

    That’s the best way to describe what very well may be Mike Flanagan’s greatest creation yet. ‘MIDNIGHT MASS’ rumbles with methodical thunder in its veins. Thunder that initially pulses as it envelops you in an ethereal cloud of flashing light and uncertainty. By the time it’s encroaching bolts surround you, you can’t help but…

    The Mortuary Collection

    ★★½

    I can appreciate an entertaining and well-made anthology and this is certainly that. But with the absolute exception that is the second vignette (and to a minor extent, the first), ‘THE MORTUARY COLLECTION’ is a great idea in need of a better treatment.

    The aforementioned ‘60s-set peak of this collection is a funny, clever and exceedingly gross-out-punctuated riot starring ‘EUPHORIA’ breakout Jacob Elordi. Between a charming Elordi, the continuing disturbing revelations of the segment, and the payoff, this is the…

  • The Blue Hour

    The Blue Hour

    ★★★½

    I've been waiting for a barn-burner like this all spooky season.

    'THE BLUE HOUR' gave me the full throttle experience and somehow did it with opaque, playful reality-agnostic originality. This does not go at all the way I expected it to. One minute steamy, angsty romance commands the story and the next it wildly veers into supernatural thrill. All of it is illustrated with gorgeous visuals, often doing so while capturing the full spectrum of its titular color. Its stunning…

    Vampires vs. the Bronx

    ★★★½

    Wholesome Latino and Black representation in a horror film. We love to see it!

    Vampires vs. the Bronx is much more than the latest Netflix flavor of the week. In it's modest way, this mainstream-friendly vamp-hunting jaunt is a big deal, not only because it is led by a trio of adorable kids who happen to be people of color, but because it also manages to imbue a dusty genre mainstay with a vitally urgent message that is very much…

    2000-On: Original Sci-Fi Stories

    Dylan O'Brien? More like Dylan O'My-God-I-Didn't-Realize-How-Much-I-Needed-You-During-This-Pandemic-ien

    Hope and optimism are in short supply these days and when someone embodies them as saliently as the ever-lovable lead of Love and Monsters does, it's akin to finding treasure buried in your yard. Okay, maybe it's not exactly like that but when you're constantly bombarded by bleak societal forecasts courtesy of all too real monsters (whether they be spray-tanned or pathogenic), bright, mood-boosting actors like O'Brien in bright, mood-boosting…
