"Class Action Park" Movie Review
Yes, kids, long ago there really was a place called Action Park. From 1978 to 1996, it attracted mainly teenagers primarily from the New York area to a quint little grassy knoll an hour outside of town in the northernmost part of New Jersey. The place was a no-holds-barred, largely unsupervised ...
"Happy Happy Joy Joy: The Ren & Stimpy Story" Movie Review
How much is too much for you to stop appreciating a former Hollywood favorite’s work once distasteful (or even criminal) revelations about him arise? Has The Usual Suspects and House of Cards been scratched from your watchlist in the wake of Kevin Spacey’s sexual assault charges?
"Howard" Movie Review
For those not among the deep-dive Disney faithful, the name Howard Ashman may only spark the slightest hint of recognition, but if you were told he’s the man who wrote the lyrics to all the songs in The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin, you may well light up like a Christmas tree...
"Spelling the Dream" Movie Review
Netflix’s new documentary Spelling the Dream couches itself as an exploration of the spate of Indian-American winners at the annual Scripps National Spelling Bee—which is indeed a remarkable, noteworthy run. South Asian kids have won the event for the past twelve years straight (and 26 of the ...
"Miss Americana" Movie Review
In July 2016, the interwebs were abuzz with the “TaylorSwiftIsOverParty” hashtag, trumpeting what many thought (and, no doubt, hoped) was the end of an era in pop music. As we have learned in the three years since, however, reports of the singer’s demise were greatly exaggerated...
"Mystify: Michael Hutchence" Movie Review
In the mid-1980s there were few men who could claim rock god status quite like Michael Hutchence. The hugely charismatic lead singer of INXS burst on the scene with his band’s first big hit, 1985’s “What You Need” (though true fans remember as far back as 1982’s “The One Thing” and ...

"Free Solo" Movie Review
It’s extremely rare for a rock climber to make international headlines, but 31-year-old Alex Honnold did just that when, on June 3, 2017, he scaled the 3,300-foot-tall vertical granite wall of El Capitan in California’s Yosemite National Park. It’s an impressive enough feat with ropes and pitons...

"Bad Reputation" Movie Review
Unless you’re a child of the 80s, it’s quite conceivable that you’ve never even heard the name Joan Jett. Out of the mainstream for thirty years, Jett’s name has only come up in the past decade in punk rock circles (she’s a well-known producer) and because of her 2015 induction into the Rock and...
"Fahrenheit 11/9" Movie Review
It’s no secret that Michael Moore wears his politics on his sleeve. And his pant legs. And around his waist, on his head, and in his shoes. Fourteen years ago he famously skewered the George W. Bush administration in the Palme d'Or-winning documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, followed by 2007’s Sicko...
"Won't You Be My Neighbor?" Movie Review
Is there a better time than right now for a documentary about one of the most honest, humble, and life-affirming men of the last century? In a day when cynicism is at an all-time high and the country is split wider than at any time since the civil rights movement, Won’t ...

Michael Moore Fahrenheit 9/11 Review - Convinced by Entertainment?
Did Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 offer entertainment (emotion) as an effective realm for political criticism and for reaching the voting American public? In his film, Moore argues that America has been fooled by Bush, that the war in Iraq takes advantage of the "have-nots" and that Americans blindly rely on Bush for protection.
