Godzilla vs. Kong Is Fine And That’s Okay

Godzilla vs. Kong is just fine and that’s perfectly okay as viewers watch the newest installment of Legendary’s Monsterverse. This film more than makes up for 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. There’s still an ample plot regarding the human characters but there’s more than enough battles between Godzilla and Kong to make up for it. In 2019, we saw the eco-terrorists wanting to wake up the titans in order to help the planet’s rebirth.…

Toronto 2020: I Care A Lot

J Blakeson’s I Care A Lot blends a mix of comedy and thrills to deliver a satire with another strong performance from actress Rosamund Pike. Marla Grayson (Rosamund Pike) is a legal guardian and is the type who will take advantage of any loophole in the system.  If it means paying doctors off to have another ward of the state, so be it.  Marla is the type of woman who will rob her clients and…

Sundance 2019: Paradise Hills

There’s no doubt that Paradise Hills has a lot of ambition with a strong feminist story it wishes to tell but manages to miss the mark somewhere along the way. The film starts with Uma (Emma Roberts) getting married to a mysterious man that we hardly know anything about.  Almost immediately as any action takes place, the film jumps straight to two months earlier.  This allows us to dive into the backstory of how we…

Welcome to Marwen: The Downsizing of 2018

Robert Zemeckis and Steve Carell team up in Welcome to Marwen but this story is better told as a documentary rather than narrative feature. The town of Marwen is a fictional Belgian town that Mark Hogancamp (Steve Carell) creates while recovering from the brutal attack.  An artist in real life, Hogancamp loses many of his memories following the attack.  Basically, an American fighter pilot, Captain Hogie (Carell), crashes during World War 2, gets attacked by Nazis,…

Baby Driver: Does the Edgar Wright film need a sequel?

In a recent podcast interview, writer-director Edgar Wright mentioned that the studio approached him about making a sequel to Baby Driver. The film was produced on a low-to-mid budget of $34 million and honestly, it doesn’t even need a sequel.  It’s good enough standing on its own. “The studio have asked me to think about writing a sequel and it is one of the ones that I might do a sequel to because I think…

Baby Driver: Music drives Edgar Wright’s Action Thriller

Baby Driver is one of the best films of the first half of 2017 and director Edgar Wright uses music to the film’s advantage. Written and directed by Edgar Wright, Baby Driver stars Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza Gonzalez, with Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx. My initial thought as I watched the movie last Wednesday was that Baby Driver utilizes the music at a level that the Guardians of the Galaxy…
