For a movie that sure has absolutely no right in being any good, Wonka sure is a delight. No one asked for a prequel to Charlie [Willy Wonka] & the Chocolate Factory–the idea, frankly, is obnoxious. Yet the movie, from Paul King–the director behind the equally delightful Paddington movies–works, and it works wonderfully well. Boasting

Yorgos Lanthimos is a fucked up individual. Thankfully he’s also brilliant and one of the most fascinating filmmakers working today. His latest, Poor Things, may be the best of his career, a twisted, darkly funny, superbly acted, and incredibly unique adaptation of Alasdair Gray’s novel, which of course I haven’t read because why would I

Nicolas Cage gives a dream-level performance in the imaginative Dream Scenario, a movie that for a while transcends reality until its nightmarish third act sets in.

Eli Roth has referred to himself as “horror master” in the past, but Thanksgiving may be the director’s first good movie. Incredibly gruesome and thoroughly entertaining, this holiday-themed slasher may not be perfect, but it’s well worth watching in a crowded theater. A year after a Black Friday fiasco that caused the brutal deaths of
Bradley Cooper finds his formidable opponent in the sly Cate Blanchett in Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming thriller Nightmare Alley. Originally Published Here.
I watched The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes at a really nice theater. A Dolby Cinema. Nice visuals. Great sound. Semi-reclining scenes with large armrests and cushy cushions. About an hour into this Hunger Games prequel, I thought: this is really nice. I’m really comfortable. Should I take a nap? I’m pretty
For our dorky 13-year-old in Turning Red, turning red has a completely different meaning. And consequences! Originally Published Here.
From action director John Woo comes a movie with a killer concept that isn’t quite as killer in reality. Silent Night boasts solid action scenes and features a fiery performance by Joel Kinnaman, but its near silent premise–no words are spoken throughout the movie–doesn’t fully work. Early on, we’re introduced to Godlock (Kinnaman), who is

In All of Us Strangers, a lonely dude in a lonely apartment building meets another lonely dude and one thing leads to another, including a dreamlike journey to his childhood.

The best part about a Danish drama that pits two men against each other for supremacy is that you get to have a villain by the name of De Schinkel, because I can’t possibly think of a better villain name than De Schinkel. The second best part: The Promised Land, which stars Mads Mikkelsen, is

A prehistoric family finds them hunted by a ruthless creature in Out of Darkness, an atmospheric thriller that is a worthy watch even if it never quite finds its potential in the shadows. Though it is set 45,000 years earlier, if this movie sounds just a bit like the 2022 movie Prey, you wouldn’t be

Clever concept. Great writer. Terrible experience. That sums up Lisa Frankenstein, an imaginative romantic comedy-horror that looks like early-career Tim Burton, feels like late-career Tim Burton, and is as dead on arrival as one of its main characters. From writer Diablo Cody–who did Juno, Jennifer’s Body, Tully, and Young Adult–Lisa Frankenstein is about an awkward

Priscilla Presley is a victim of a bad husband and shitty life decisions in Sofia Coppola’s understated biopic Priscilla. Well crafted and superbly acted by Cailee Spaeny, the movie is unfortunately destined to be forgotten to time as Coppola keeps the audience at arms’ length.

I saw Madame Web for free and I still want my money back. Yes, the new Sony-Marvel comic book movie is as advertised: a sloppy, terribly written mess that would have been considered bad even had it been released in the decade it appears it was made: the mid-90s. Dakota Johnson stars as the confused
Helen Mirren had a very important role in being part of the cast of Barbie. She was the box office-dominating film’s narrator, providing humor with her signature British accent. In addition to being heard though, Mirren was almost also seen drunk fighting in a scene with a fellow Oscar winner. Greta Gerwig had no one
