‘HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U’ Review: “More Laughs And A Sci-Fi Twist Make For A Superior Sequel”

5 seconds- that’s all it takes for Happy Death Day 2U to let the audience know it’s going to be a very different type of sequel. Whereas the first film begins with the Universal Pictures logo repeating itself over and over again, this one features the same logo splitting into three separate logos, clue-ing us in that

‘ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL’ Review: “An Instant Science-Fiction Classic”

There was a lot riding against Alita: Battle Angel.  For one, it’s a Hollywood manga adaptation, which have historically been poorly received both critically and commercially. Then there’s the issue of its director, Robert Rodriguez, who hasn’t had anything really hit on either front since 2005’s Sin City. And finally, there’s the film’s long development cycle: over

The release of Deadpool back in 2016 shook the landscape of what superhero movies could be. An R-rated action-comedy that played up not only the laughs and gore but the heart and humanity of this wise-cracking anti-hero.

‘BLACK MIRROR: BANDERSNATCH’ Review: “An Unmissable Technical Achievement, Marred Only By A Few Narrative Missteps”

Just as the new standalone Black Mirror film Bandersnatch begins with an advisory, so too does this review. Do not come out of this piece trying to peg the film as good or bad in some binary way.

‘THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT’ Review: “The Boldest Film Of 2018 Is A Provocative Takedown Of The Tortured Artist”

There’s no question that The House That Jack Built is the most controversial film of 2018. Upon premiering at Cannes, it received mass walkout and boos, while its director, Danish filmmaker Lars Von Trier, known for challenging audiences with films such as Nymphomaniac, Meloncholia, and Anti-Christ, has been facing some very serious allegations of sexual misconduct. There’s a lot clouding the
