After years of talking about the film, James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water is finally arriving on the big screen in theaters. Here’s the thing about Avatar: you’re either a fan or you’re not. How one feels about the first movie will more or less be the way one feels about the second. I would have been fine just watching the 2D version of the film. Maybe it’s because of where I was sitting…"Avatar: The Way of Water: You’ll Love It Or You Won’t"
Muru is a very tense thriller as a community police officer must decide between doing his job and protecting his community. This film is inspired by true events but it’s not a recreation. Per the start of the film, it’s actually a response to the raid. And honestly, looking at the conversation about policing in the past few years, it makes one rethink their feelings. I mean, honestly, is a person a terrorist when they…"Muru – Toronto 2022"

It’s a nice break for the likes of Chicago and San Francisco after suffering damages in…"Reminiscence Arrives on Home Video"

There may not be any cocaine cowboys in this film but Miami is starting to get the brunt of the damage on screen. Miami’s future is bleak whether it’s an alien attack or a vanishing coastline.

The Meg offers a fair share of humor and suspense but comes off as just a bit more than the typical SyFy B-movie of the week. At least I think it does. When you get misgendered in the bathroom before seeing a film, it absolutely kills your mood and kick-starts a depression. Just going off of my notes during the press screening, I can say that I appreciated the commentary with regards to shark poaching. There…"The Meg: You Won’t Need A Bigger Boat"
