Thunder Road Review Thunder Road

In 2016, director Jim Cummings’ Thunder Road won the short film grand jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival. That film, which focused on one man’s eulogy of his mother, was the beginning of something great and now Cummings has...

A Star is Born Review A Star is Born

It’s hard to go into A Star is Born with few expectations. After all, this is a cinematic remake with two well-known stars leading the cast. Earlier versions of this story include the 1937 adaptation starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, the...

Smallfoot Review Smallfoot

Smallfoot, the new animated movie, offers a glimpse into a unique world of Yetis, fanciful stones and even the morning ritual of a ringing of a gong. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t relevant. The feature has its own identity but the...

Ant Man and the Wasp Review Ant-Man and the Wasp

The first two Marvel movies of 2018 focused on large-scale rivalries. Black Panther, the best superhero movie of the year so far, culminated in a battle over the nation of Wakanda while Infinity War ended with a battle to stop Thanos from...

Skyscraper Review Skyscraper

Dwayne Johnson has a knack for choosing big-budget action films with an emotional core to them. In the Fast and the Furious series (which he joined in the fifth installment), there’s an emphasis on family. In this year’s Rampage, there’s a...

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Review Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which clocks in at two hours and eight minutes, feels like two separate and distinct films. The first half of the movie revolves around an effort to rescue dinosaurs from Isla Nublar, the setting of the previous film...
