Argylle Movie Review

‘Argylle’ Movie Review – A Jackson Pollock of fun and familiar spy humor

Argylle sees Matthew Vaughn return with another silly, over-the-top spy movie. Mercifully, it’s not the Kingsman characters for once and a brand new story for the Kick-Ass filmmaker (Well, kind of). The film has a lot of derivative qualities, but for the most part, Argylle excels in its enjoyable casting and sequences, which are willing to go for …

Killers of the Flower Moon Movie Review.

‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ Movie Review

If you were to do a Family Feud-style survey and ask a hundred people who the greatest movie director of all time is, you undoubtedly would get Alfred Hitchcock’s name on the board.

Review: ‘Fingernails’ is a thought experiment in love and certainty

One day, I put on a pair of shoes that were too big so I could run outside to grab the mail. I snagged my big toenail in them, and it tore clean off. So I had a visceral reaction to the premise of Christos Nikou’s recent film Fingernails, which is currently streaming …

Review: ‘Napoleon’ is Waterloo on the silver screen

Boring, pointless, and uninspired, Ridley Scott’s Napoleon attempts to side-step the traditional biopic pratfalls, but forgets to do anything remotely interesting or captivating. Scott and screenwriter David Scarpa decide to forgo any background information on Napoleon, and focus on his rapid ascension from ambitious soldier to Emperor of Rome. Unfortunately, the forgot …

‘Ghosted’ Movie Review – A fun but flawed action-romance

It’s clear that the intention behind Ghosted, the new movie starring Chris Evans and Ana de Armas, isn’t to deliver the studio prestigious awards. The value in this movie is different – by watching it, you can’t help but want to talk about it. And that’s what I did. And from casually watching Twitter and …

Apple TV Dickinson

Dickinson’s pilot episode

I last updated my pilot-a-day project long ago, and today I wanted to revisit that New Year’s Resolution.  I recently watched the first two seasons (and the pilot) of Dickinson and wanted to take a moment to explore the show. Why Dickinson?  Marvel’s TV show Hawkeye is coming out, and I thought …
