Gunpowder Milkshake

Spoiler alert: I’m pretty sure the milkshake’s actually just vanilla. Public safety notice: Don’t eat gunpowder. It’s not delicious and it also might set your toots on fire. Friendly piece of advice: Chocolate beats vanilla. Peanut-butter-brownie’s even better. Salted-caramel-pretzel is the best. Movie premise: Sam (Karen Gillan) is abandoned as a child by her assassin […]

Film Review: “Black Widow” (2021)

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 4 out of 5. Black Widow is one of the most fascinating characters I personally started respecting after her ultimate sacrifice in The Avengers End Game. There’s something about her you can’t disregard. It’s not just her contagious charm or ability to convince the rest of the world why she deserves to be […]

“Space Jam: A New Legacy” 2021

Full disclosure: I was never a part of the original “Space Jam” craze. I was 25-years-old when the movie came out in 1996 and never felt inclined to see it during its initial release. I watched it later (at least most of it) and nothing about it has stuck with me. I say that to […]

Spider-man: Far From Home

For some reason, I’m getting requests to review super-hero movies, even though it’s hardly an area of expertise. There are good ones, The Dark Night, Thor: Ragnorok, Iron Man 3. But most of them have a written-by-committee feel; David Mamet described a summer blockbuster movie as being like a themed ‘pageant’, and there’s generally little […]

“Plenty” of Fish in the Sea – Seaspiracy (2021)

Not a fun time. Meet filmmaker Ali Tabrizi. He likes to do his part for the environment. He picks up trash on beaches, he always carries around a reusable water bottle, and he donates money to marine conservation groups. But can he be doing more? This documentary is about him traveling the world and conducting […]

John’s Horror Corner: The Ruins (2008)

MY CALL:  I love this flick! There’s nothing groundbreaking here, but it’s still a solid movie. We have an awesome cast giving good performances in a well-directed, deliciously gory killer plant movie. What more did you want?  MORE MOVIES LIKE The Ruins:  Well, for more killer plant movies I’d aim for Splinter (2008), Invasion of […]

Star Wars: The Bad Batch – Episode One Review

Quick Thoughts about Episode One – Star Wars: The Bad Batch is a welcome addition to the Star Wars animated world, and is refreshingly unique as it follows Clone Force 99, a group of defectively born, and battle-hardened clones throughout the post-Clone Wars universe.  The official synopsis for the show is “Members of a unique […]

Thunderball (1965)

Any Bond film was going to pale in comparison to Goldfinger, but even so Thunderball was a remarkably weak effort – and easily the weakest film in the Sean Connery canon. Neither as light on its feet as Goldfinger, nor as taut or propulsive, Thunderball mainly unfolds in the Bahamas, where Bond has to thwart […]

Review: Without Remorse

Without Remorse is based on the 1993 Tom Clancy novel of the same name. It’s fitting the novel was written in the early 90’s, the film is a throwback to the early 90’s action films that flooded theaters and currently live on basic cable. The story follows John Clark (Michal B Jordan), a member of […]

REVIEW: “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”

Just so you know where I’m coming from, Captain America has always been my favorite Marvel superhero and not just during his run in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Long before Marvel Studios started raking in billions of dollars at the box office, I was enthusiastically following Captain America’s comic book adventures, both as the head […]

The Annie Awards Honor “Soul”

I think it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that Soul is going to win the Oscar for Best Animated Film.  I’m not complaining because I really, really liked Soul.  (I also really liked Farmageddon but, sadly, there can only be one winner.)  That said, if Soul needed a boost, it certainly got one from the […]

REVIEW: “Voyagers” (2021)

Some science-fiction junkies like me might be tempted to approach the new film “Voyagers” with a touch of caution. The movie’s first trailer showed off a fairly interesting premise and a cast rich with sparkling young talent. And then you have the description going around calling it “Lord of the Flies in space” which only […]

REVIEW: “Thunder Force” (2021)

Melissa McCarthy’s collaborations with writer-director and husband Ben Falcone have been pretty brutal. Falcone has directed McCarthy in four previous movies. Of those, 2018’s abysmal “Life of the Party” has the highest Rotten Tomatoes score at 38%. Yes I know, review aggregators aren’t infallible and they don’t always represent the quality of a movie.
