Love Me Kristin Stewart Steven Yeun Movie Review from Sundance

‘Love Me’ Movie Review: Strange love with Stewart and Yeun (Sundance)

Sundance thrives on a level of strangeness within their films. Some premises are so absurd one wonders if they can be successful. This year’s festival alone offered plenty of surrealist entertainment. Movies like Presence, Loves Lies Bleeding, and Freaky Tales delivered a level of hyper-stylized fantasy. It helped the festival to give audiences …

Review: ‘The Lobster’ by Lanthimos is a nearly perfect absurdist dry comedy

Review: ‘Anyone But You’ is a good time if you like hot people falling in love

Before I begin this review of Anyone But You, I must include the full disclosure that I am a self-proclaimed hopeless romantic by nature. There’s always a soft spot in my heart for romantic comedies. I’m not over the moon for all of them, but I tend to enjoy them a …

‘Which Brings Me to You’ Interview with Director Peter Hutchings

Director Peter Hutchings turned heads (in the best way!) with his adaptation of the popular romance book The Hating Game, starring Lucy Hale and Austin Stowell.

Review: ‘Role Play’ Cuoco and Oyelowo’s film is light on laughs and excitement

True to its name, Role Play is an uninspired affair disguised as something more exciting. Its hybridization of the action and comedy genres has worked plenty of times in the past – Kick-Ass, Spy, Hot Fuzz, Everything Everywhere All At Once, and the 21 Jump Street films to name but a few examples. While they are all focused on …

Review: Sun, Surf, and Sonnets: ‘Anyone But You’ Spins a Shakespearian Spat Down Under

Witty repartee and sexy chemistry spark like fireworks on bridal flowers in Anyone But You, a breezy rom-com down under starring Glen Powell and Sydney Sweeney. Anyone But You is a sexy second-chance enemies-to-lovers fake dating contemporary romantic comedy novel come to life in the best ways possible.  It’s got beautiful people with fantastic chemistry, a …

‘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 …
