Don’t Worry Darling

The drama and controversy surrounding Don’t Worry Darling’s cast and director probably didn’t do this movie any favors. Rumors swirled around a train wreck of a shoot with shouting arguments on set, favoritism, and rifts between cast members. TikTok users fueled the off-the-rails press tour with scandalous commentary about who spit on who, and whoContinue reading “Don’t Worry Darling”

God’s Country

When I hear the phrase God’s Country, I lean into an image of an expansive and lush prairie with streams and wildlife and maybe a pretty mountain range in the distance. Instead, this film takes us to a cold, snow-covered small town in Montana. The kind of place you might escape to if you wantedContinue reading “God’s Country”

Bodies Bodies Bodies

The game Bodies Bodies Bodies has certainly evolved since I played it when I was younger. The movie is about a group of obviously rich twentysomethings that gather together for a hurricane party at a lavish estate. The two characters we first meet are Sophie (Amandla Stenberg) and Bee (Maria Bakalova), who are evidently aContinue reading “Bodies Bodies Bodies”

Bullet Train

Bullet Train has been busy flooding my feeds with trailers for this highly anticipated action film starring Brad Pitt. So much so, that I think I saw most of the movie before I sat down in the theater. Turns out that’s true. An unlucky assassin named Ladybug (Brad Pitt) is trying to pull back fromContinue reading “Bullet Train”

Jurassic World Dominion

Jurassic World Dominion is so hilariously bad, it’s good. This is the last movie in the Jurassic World Trilogy – which attempts to form some closure with what happens when the dinosaurs live in the wild. It brings with it a sense of nostalgia with characters from the original Jurassic Park. And ultimately shines lightContinue reading “Jurassic World Dominion”

Top Gun: Maverick

Nearly everyone I know has seen Top Gun: Maverick already, or at least has plans to. Even the kids who didn’t see the original Top Gun are here for it. So I can’t waste too much time talking about how great of a movie experience it is – because you probably already know. Predictable? Sure.Continue reading “Top Gun: Maverick”

Dr. Strange in The Multiverse of Madness

Why is the multiverse so dang complicated? I’m late talking about this, but feel compelled to mention Dr. Strange. I thought it was good, not great. Haunting, not heroic. It wasn’t that I didn’t like it, but I missed the Marvel-ness of it. Visually Dr. Strange is quite interesting. There are weird, chaotic and creativeContinue reading “Dr. Strange in The Multiverse of Madness”

The Northman

The Northman is a whole mess of a story to talk about. And let me preface this by saying I’m obviously not the target for this film. But I saw it, and I felt things. The movie starts out with a King (Ethan Hawke) returning home to his wife (Nicole Kidman) and young Prince AmlethContinue reading “The Northman”

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

Nick Cage is a Massive Talent. So much so, that Super-fan Javi (Pedro Pascal) offers him one million dollars for an appearance at a birthday party. Of course, that sounds beneath him, until Cage finds himself in need of cash after his latest failed audition. He takes the offer and majestically jumps into the middleContinue reading “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent”
