‘Booksmart’ Review: Believe The Hype !

Review: ‘John Wick 3 – Parabellum’ Is An Engrossing Cracking Good Time

John Wick 3 is a symphony of pulse-pounding high-intensity action sequences dripping with intensity the likes an audience rarely sees. Derek Kolstad and Shay Hatten’s narrative seamlessly weaves in with the previous two films, but if we are honest, no one is going to this release Read More …

Review: ‘Pokémon Detective Pikachu’ Is Lackluster

Movie Review: ‘Roma’ Is A Triumph Of The Human Spirit

Not very often, but sometimes a movie comes along which so profoundly moves you, that it drives the calmest of critics to find the highest mountaintop so they can shout their admiration for it. Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma” is an intoxicating look at all which makes Read More …

Review: ‘Can You Ever Forgive Me?’ But McCarthy Is Brilliant

There’s a reason why “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” is gaining such momentum during awards season and it begins with Melissa McCarthy. To put it bluntly her per performance is such a departure from her norm that it’s quite frankly startling. While her antics have Read More …

Review: The Fantastic Beasts Sequel Should Be Obliviated

Not every sequel should be made. Often Hollywood refuses to acknowledge because certain segments of fans are like sheep and a drawn to any film which even remotely touches on a subject they are into. David Yates’s latest foray into the Harry Potter universe is Read More …
