A Quiet Place (review)

In 2016 a movie called 13 Hours came out. It was the story about the Benghazi incident told from the soldiers perspective. The movie starred John Krasinski as a grizzled soldier stationed in Benghazi, and for the most part I thought he was rather good in the film. It was a departure from the work…

Unsane (review)

Every so often a filmmaker will take a risk and film a movie with an unusual technique, whether it be an attempt at a single take film, a film that runs in real time, or a movie about a boy’s childhood but using that same actor for 12 years in order to make the movie.…

John Wick Chapter 2 (review)

In 2014 a small action flick called John Wick came out to the pleasant surprise of many including myself. It was a fun action packed film that saw the return of Keanu Reeves in top form with a story that was simple but effective: A retired assassin seeks revenge when his dog is killed.  …

But I always held a much more relaxed view of the director, as I still saw skill…

XXX: The Return of Xander Cage (review)

If you take all the camp and cheese from the entire Bond franchise (pre-2006 reboot) ferment it and then mix it with a full bottle of tequila, 4 Four Lokos, and a gallon of Red Bull you’d get a taste of what XXX: The Return of Xander Cage is like. If you think that description…
