  • At the time, Downton Abbey fans may not have been too pleased with his premature departure from the role of young Matthew Crawley, but surely folks have come to realize that Dan Stevens actually ...

  • The ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus is credited with telling us that the only constant is change, and though many in Hollywood pride themselves on always keeping audiences guessing (the Coen Brothers have never made the same movie twice, Gary Oldman and Meryl Streep are veritable chameleons)...

    "Destroyer" Movie Review

  • Not normally a fan of real-life-based films, Benjamin Cox finds his interest piqued by the first decent film about Formula One. Can Ron Howard do for motor racing what 'Apollo 13' did for space flight?

  • Setting a cinematic love story against the backdrop of a major historical event is always a dicey proposition. There’s a handful of times it’s been done well, but more often than not the historical...

    "The Promise": Movie Review

    by Collin Parker0

  • When an unknown entity creates a global epidemic that drives people insane and forces most to commit suicide, the survivors must fend for themselves. The only way to stay alive is by not looking at the beings that are causing this apocalyptic event to occur, essentially making the whole world blind.

  • Just a few months after dazzling Thor: Ragnarok audiences as one of the more audacious and ludicrous superheroes around, Chris Hemsworth is playing a superhero yet again—only this time it’s a real-life one, and the story is, amazingly, just as unbelievable. As Green Beret Captain Mitch Nelson in ...

  • For many years, we strived to travel to the moon. This is the story of the man who succeeded in that mission and made the first step on the moon's surface. But in order to accomplish that goal, it took many failures to get it all right for Neil Armstrong and his team.

  • Seven months after Bohemian Rhapsody gave us a heavily sanitized, watered-down history of Freddie Mercury and Queen, we finally get a no holds barred, fantastical, Behind the Music-esque film about one of music’s most colorful and prolific icons. Rocketman is every bit the movie Rhapsody could ...

  • James Mangold directs Hugh Jackman for the last time, along with Patrick Stewart and Dafne Keen in a unique entry in the X-Men universe. Will it claw its way to success, or is its healing factor lost?

  • A little over a month ago, Kevin Hart was best known for being in way too many movies (five in 2014, two in 2015, four in 2016, three in 2017…), but then the flap about him hosting the Oscars (and subsequently stepping down) took over the news cycle, and the concern now is whether his latest...

    "The Edge of Seventeen" Movie Review

    by Collin Parker0

  • It would be easy to label Widows a heist movie. Or a fierce revenge movie. Then again, maybe it’s a racially-charged flick about political corruption. Or one heck of a feminist, band-of-sisters film. Or maybe a violent movie about the haves and have-nots...

    "Widows" Movie Review

    by Collin Parker0

  • Two powerhouse performances combined with a great story makes one fantastic film about overcoming hardship and racial prejudice. It doesn't compromise but rather teaches us what should already be common sense by now. I give the film a 4 out of 4.

  • It would be easily forgivable should you need a reminder that Scarlett Johansson is among the more talented actors working today. She has, after all, spent most of the past decade donning a catsuit and kicking ass as Black Widow in the Marvel Universe. Fun times, to be sure, but not exactly the ...

    "Marriage Story" Movie Review

  • Initially weary of award-friendly films in case they disappoint, Benjamin Cox put off watching this until very recently. And if you're the same, allow him to explain why you should rectify this immediately...

  • Despite what you may think, you don’t need to be a speed freak or even a nominal car aficionado to get your motors revved by James Mangold’s full-throttle Ford v Ferrari. It may, in fact, be better if you’re not—the largely true-to-life film is eminently accessible for even the most novice ...

  • Even casual students of space exploration know Neil Armstrong was not a terribly outgoing person. Famously reserved and private, the first man to walk on the moon never seemed to buy into the historical significance of his achievement. He was, to be frank, incredibly bland, and you only need to ...

    "First Man" Movie Review

  • Saving Private Ryan is in my top 5 for all-time classic war movies. It offers a great cast, gritty battle scenes with scope and a top story about courage and sacrifice.

  • After thirteen nominations for the Best Cinematography, the legendary Roger Deakins finally won his first Oscar for 2017’s Blade Runner 2049. His first film since that win is Brooklyn-helmer John Crowley’s adaptation of Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Goldfinch. And for those ...

  • Lighthearted and inspiring, Donnie Yen's turn as a first time teacher with a troubled past is a positive and different turn for the Chinese superstar. The action is great and the drama masterfully plucks your heartstrings. Big Brother is mostly a grand slam that is well worth seeing.

    "Jackie" Movie Review

    by Collin Parker1

  • Once upon a time... there was an evil S.O.B. of the 1970s that savagely mutilated and murdered several women. Could it have been this seemingly innocent and charming young Ted Bundy fella? Nah! Probably not. Never even heard that name before. Sounds like a cool guy to me.

    by John Plocar3

  • Calling Joker a comic book movie is akin to calling The Great Gatsby an interesting little book or Mirazur a nice place to grab a bite. Sure, technically you’d be correct, but some things in life transcend the basic description. As disturbing and terrifying as any movie you will see this year...

    "Joker" Movie Review

    by Collin Parker1

  • Back in my 2011 review of Garry Marshall’s slog-fest New Year's Eve, I bemoaned how little of the film made any sense, including the fact that Zac Efron turned in one of the better performances among a cast including Oscar winners/nominees Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, John Lithgow, and ...

    "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" Movie Review

    by Collin Parker0

  • Huang Bo's comedy-drama is probably about 60% of what you're expecting and 40% unique. Humanity is capable of sinister things when faced with desperation. Survival instincts kick in as morality is replaced with sheer desire and greed.

  • “Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?” The opening lines of Queen’s iconic song cut to the heart of what is right and what is wrong with the band’s new namesake biopic, directed most of the way by Bryan Singer and finished by the uncredited Dexter Fletcher (who came on after Singer’s ...

    "Bohemian Rhapsody" Movie Review

    by Collin Parker0

  • Director Adam McKay’s most recent film, 2015’s The Big Short, took a ridiculously complex (and, let’s admit it, not terribly photogenic) topic and turned it into one of the best, most entertaining films that year. No, the 2009 housing bubble certainly wasn’t anything Joe Moviegoer would rush to ...
