‘Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey,’ DC Universe action title worth watching

In the movie industry, it often happens that a movie’s quality does not necessarily guarantee its box-office performance. “Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey,” featuring Margot Robbie, is unfortunate proof of this phenomenon in the best way possible. Should you go see this movie, you’d have an excellent...

‘Gretel and Hansel’: grim but dull adaptation

“Gretel and Hansel” retells the classic grim tale from the perspective of Gretel but offers little to no intrigue in its adaptation. Directed by Oz Perkins, the adaptation brings little action to keep the audience at the edge of the seat and turns out to be creepy than scary. At the beginning...

“Turning” disappoints, lacks plot and horror

“The Turning” that came out this past weekend was a huge letdown. As the movie ended I yelled out “What” as did someone else in the movies after it went to credits because no one expected the movie to end as it did. Me, already being a “Stranger Things” fan, thought maybe this would...

“Terminator: Dark Fate,” directed by Tim Miller, featuring original cast members Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, attempts to revisit previous plotlines with a new twist, but becomes repetitive and boring. The sixth movie installment in the Terminator franchise revolves around mending...

‘In The Tall Grass’ is a decent piece of horror and propaganda

Stephen King and Joe Hill’s novella, “In the Tall Grass,” is an unfortunate piece of anti-abortion propaganda and an OK horror film. Directed by Vincenzo Natali, the mystery thriller focuses on two families that become trapped in an inescapable field of grass as a result of their own choices. The...

‘Tell Me Who I Am’ a disturbing trauma film

“Tell Me Who I Am,” is an enticing and disturbing documentary, but not worthy of putting on your watchlist. The documentary is about two identical twins Marcus and Alex Lewis who confront each other after 20 years about their childhood traumas. Director Ed Perkins does a good job of eliciting...

‘Maleficent 2’ is messy and almost completely unrelated to ‘Sleeping Beauty’

“Maleficent 2: Mistress of Evil,” is a movie about acceptance, recognizing and overcoming differences, though a lot of that gets lost in its poor execution.  “Mistress of Evil,” is a sequel to the 2014 “Maleficent,” which gives the Disney villain a second chance at a first impression b...

El Camino: A Worthy Epilogue to One of the Greatest Shows of all Time

El Camino: A Worthy Epilogue to One of the Greatest Shows of all Time

Epilogue is the key word here. This is not a new chapter of the “Breaking Bad” story, but a conclusion to one character’s story that didn’t get a full ending. It is definitely a worthy epilogue and worth your time if you are a “Breaking Bad” fan. “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” throws...

For as long as audiences remember, the story of the Joker has always been told through Batman’s eyes. This new rendition of Joker is a well-done heartbreaking backstory through a different perspective. “Joker,” directed by Todd Phillps, is the life story of famous Batman villain, who, before...

October 22, 2019

They’re creepy, they’re kooky and they’ve come back. The ‘60s story of the Addams family, an unorthodox family, inclined to like all that is dreary, black or dead, is revived in this animated film. In this story, Gomez and Morticia Addams (Oscar Isaac and Charlize Theron) have been run...
