Nope. Very Quick Review. (Mild Spoilers)

It’s insane to think that with only two feature films under his belt before this one the arrival of a new Jordan Peele film is already some kind of genre event. Combine this with the deliberately secretive marketing campaign and you have a recipe for not knowing a whole lot going in. Clearly about someContinue reading “Nope. Very Quick Review. (Mild Spoilers)”

The Princess (Disney +/Hulu.) Quick Review

Not to be confused with the recent Diana documentary this reviewer just covered here’s the latest 20th Century Studios R-rated cast off.

Jurassic World: Dominion. Disappointed Fan Review.

Ever since this viewer first, saw it as part of a 2011 UK cinema re-release the original Jurassic Park has been in his top five favourite films.

The Batman. Quick Review.

Really. Another Batman film. after we laid the carcass of the embarrassingly inept SnyderVerse to rest. That said Matt Reeves is a solid choice for director. His 66% of the Planet of the Apes Caesar trilogy is awesome and some of the best blockbuster films in recent memory. Robert Pattinson has completed his redemption arcContinue reading “The Batman. Quick Review.”

No Exit. Quick Review.

There’s a broader conversation to be had about how as of 2022 new R rated titles from the Merged Disney/Fox are likely to be nothing more than content fillers for SVOD streaming. That said their first 2021 release feels like the sort of mid-tier studio thriller that benefits from this model. A college student andContinue reading “No Exit. Quick Review.”
