Streaming Movie Reviews

June may not be starting off super strong as far as new streaming releases go, but I’ve got some new mini reviews for you all regardless! If you’re thinking about trying out Paramount+ to watch the new Mark Wahlberg sci-fi film “Infinite,” you might want to reconsider. And Netflix has some new mediocre but watchable […]

Review: “In the Heights”

We’re likely all familiar with how ground-breaking Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical “Hamilton” was, but it’s safe to say that that show might not exist were it not for the success of Miranda’s first show, “In the Heights.” When “In the Heights” opened on Broadway in 2008, it entered a space predominantly inhabited by shows made […]

Throwback Review: “Thor” (2011)

In honor of the release of the first episode of the newest Marvel show on Disney Plus this week, “Loki,” I’m revisiting my 2011 review of the movie that saw the first appearance of the mischief-maker played by Tom Hiddleston: I’ve noticed over the past few years that the majority of superhero movies are one […]

Review: “Spiral”

If you were to peek inside my brain while I was watching “Spiral,” my train of thought was likely running something like this: “I really regret watching this—oh actually maybe this isn’t bad—no wait I regret this.” To say that I’m not the target audience for the “Saw” franchise, of which prior to “Spiral” I […]

Review: “Army of the Dead”

I’m pretty sure that the title of director Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead” refers to the zombie horde that has overtaken Las Vegas, but it also fits the posse of inert human characters assembled to combat them. “Army of the Dead” kicks off its truly great premise really strong, but soon devolves into an […]

Review: “Cruella”

Something really strange happened to me while I was watching “Cruella,” the latest animation to live action Disney prequel/remake. Disappointed by Disney’s recent installments in their series of nostalgia cash grabs and not impressed with the trailers for this one, I was fully prepared for “Cruella” to not be a good time. But less than […]
