'The Pool' (2018) Review: A Crocodile Egg on the Face of Entertainment

The Pool had a crazy buzz at Fantastic Fest, but took almost another year to be widely available for American audiences. It's cheap, poorly written, and amateurishly acted. The low grade CGI crocodile is absolutely the highlight.

"7500" Movie Review

Though marketed as a somewhat cheesy, Liam Neeson-esque thriller, writer-director Patrick Vollrath’s debut 7500 (streaming free on Amazon Prime) has a surprisingly decent amount of heft to it and is anchored by yet another rock-solid performance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

"The Coldest Game" Movie Review

Set against the backdrop of the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962, Polish writer-director Łukasz Kośmicki’s first feature The Coldest Game has all the trappings of an edge-of-your-seat period thriller. Spies, microfilms, poison, and even an international chess tournament all feature ...


'Come to Daddy' (2020) Review: The Hunt for Raisin Eyes

Should I Watch..? 'No Country For Old Men'

With a career as lauded as the Coen Brothers have enjoyed, picking their greatest must surely be a challenge. Not so, says Benjamin Cox. In fact, there's no contest at all.


"Earthquake Bird" Movie Review

Buried somewhere under the foundation of the latest throw-away Netflix thriller is a halfway-decent, moody suspense flick. The problem is, it’s buried so deep that no one can even begin to know it’s there, much less find it. And, after only ten or so minutes of watching Earthquake Bird, it’s ...


"The Good Liar" Movie Review

How Ian McKellan and Helen Mirren have never had the opportunity to share the screen is beyond me and, after seeing their performances in Bill Condon’s The Good Liar, may even be grounds for criminal neglect. The two are, at ages 80 and 74 respectively, at the top of their game and could be ...

Should I Watch..? 'Vanishing On 7th Street'
