What follows is my review from the theatrical release: Dune: Part 2 is the next chapter in the Dune saga as filmmaker Denis Villeneuve brings his vision of the Frank Herbert novel to the screen. To borrow a line from Anakin Skywalker:…

Dune: Part 2 Is An Epic Experience on the Big Screen

Dune: Part 2 is the next chapter in the Dune saga as filmmaker Denis Villeneuve brings his vision of the Frank Herbert novel to the screen. To borrow a line from Anakin Skywalker: “I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.” It’s such a classic line and comes to mind upon seeing a Dune movie on the big screen. Arrakis is a sand planet so I’m not going to…

Christopher Nolan’s epic masterpiece, Oppenheimer, is now available to bring home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. At long last, audiences can finally bring the film home.

In any event, Oppenheimer is a must-own for anyone’s collection.…

Oppenheimer Is An Epic Masterpiece

Christopher Nolan has done it again with Oppenheimer as the J. Robert Oppenheimer biopic is another epic masterpiece. Don’t let the 3-hour run time fool you because this one earns every minute of it. I left the theater once and that was only so I could refill a drink. At no point did this film ever feel slow because it had my attention for every single minute. It’s a film that must be experienced on…

A Good Person Has All The Feelings

Florence Pugh delivers one of the best performances of her career as Zach Braff’s A Good Person will leave audiences with all the feelings. A Good Person is not an easy film to watch. It deals with injuries, grief, and the trauma that comes with both of them. You can make the argument that there’s something of a happy ending but this two-hour-plus film does not have an easy path in reaching the point. But…

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish Gets A Bit Dark

Drawing inspiration from a classic Sergio Leone film, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is the long-awaited sequel to the 2011 Shrek spin-off. Audiences had a chance to catch a sneak preview over Thanksgiving weekend. Similarly, Critics Choice Association members had the opportunity to do the same by way of digital screener. I never got around to watching the first film but I caught both in a double feature on Thanksgiving Eve. This one is…

Black Widow Arrives on Home Video

In what may be one of the quickest theater-to-home releases for a studio tentpole, Black Widow is now available on home video to buy or rent. Before I dive into my thoughts on the film, we need to talk about the end credits. Because the film displays the credits during an opening montage, there is no mid-credit scene. Instead, the scene comes at the very end of the credits. If you’re watching at home, a…

Black Widow: Marvel Does It Again With Spy Thriller

It’s been a long time coming for Black Widow but the Marvel spy thriller is finally hitting theaters and Disney+ Premier Access. Before I dive into my thoughts on the film, we need to talk about the end credits. Because the film displays the credits during an opening montage, there is no mid-credit scene. Instead, the scene comes at the very end of the credits. If you’re watching at home, a lot of people worked…

Little Women: Another Remake But A Strong One

Little Women is another re-telling in a long line of adaptations of the beloved two-volume novel by author Louisa May Alcott. Maybe it’s because of my childhood–you know, the whole growing up with the wrong body–but I wasn’t able to really connect with the film upon my first viewing a few weeks ago.  Upon second viewing, I found it to be a much stronger film.  Of course, I still have issues with never-ending remakes but…
