Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse features many surprises and prevents the superhero genre from going stale by injecting a fresh bite. This is one of the biggest films of the year in which I suggest going in completely cold.  It means not reading reviews or watching trailers until after seeing the film.  I say this because we’re not without the typical surprises.  However, some of this comes by way of the voice roles not provided in…

The film is set two years after Bonnie Altmyer (Juliette Lewis) is sent to prison for killing her husband.  This leaves her son, Harley (Alex Pettyfer), in charge of his three younger sisters.  It’s not easy for this family in rural Pennsylvania.

Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes

Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes explores the life of Fox News founder Roger Ailes while tackling the sexual harassment that brought him down. “It’s easy to make somebody into a monster.  It’s hard to see that you’re on that path, too.” The above are the words that we first hear as soon as the film documentary starts.  What’s most surprising is that they come out of the mouth of former Fox News…

When Jeff Tried to Save the World

A bowling alley manager rises up to the challenge in Kendall Goldberg’s feature directorial debut, When Jeff Tried to Save the World. Let’s get one thing out of the way first.  This film may be set at a bowling alley but it is not a bowling movie.  It’s a film about rising up to the challenge of saving the things we love the most. The World in the film’s title refers to Winky’s World rather…
