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…"A Good Person Has All The Feelings"

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…"Puss in Boots: The Last Wish Gets A Bit Dark"
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 Arrives on Home Video"

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…"Little Women: Another Remake But A Strong One"

In telling the story of Scottish king Robert the Bruce’s early years, Outlaw King draws a bigger focus on the battle at hand. There’s no doubt that Robert the Bruce (Chris Pine) led an interesting life but as a person, he’s such a complex character. He goes from noble to kind to outlaw in the span of just a few years. How many people can truly put such impressive feats on their resume?!? The Scotland…"Outlaw King gets Bloody and Brutal"
