The award-winning John Adams limited series, starring Paul Giamatti as the former president, is solid viewing for Presidents Day. I’m not going to dive into the plot of every part of the miniseries. If you know the story of John Adams, you already know what’s going to happen. Well, maybe. They certainly play with the history to an extent! What I will tell you right now is that the book is better. I originally watched…"John Adams: A Presidential Miniseries"
Olivia Munn delivers a a career-best performance in Justine Bateman’s directorial debut, Violet, making its Canadian premiere during TIFF. Let me tell you right off the bat that you need to be in the right mindset for the film. If you don’t have the right headspace, this film could prove to be problematic. Take it from me: I had major depression hit just before SXSW this year. Because of this, I didn’t review Violet during…"Violet – Toronto 2021"
The spotlight is on Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in On the Basis of Sex as the future justice begins her fight against gender discrimination. A lot of what gets covered in this film was also covered in the Solzy Award-winning documentary, RBG. This makes so much of the film feel rather redundant to say the least. I won’t lie in that I questioned why would someone want to watch a biopic when one…"On the Basis of Sex: A Conventional Biopic At Best"
Travis Knight takes over for Michael Bay in the director’s chair while allowing Bumblebee to become the best live-action Transformers movie in the franchise. Once upon a time, Bumblee (Dylan O’Brien) had a voice. This was some thirty years before the war between the Autobots and Decepticons restarted on Earth. Years before Chicago got leveled because there’s some sort of obsession that filmmakers have with destroying the Windy City. Years before a Transformers film became the best…"Bumblebee: The Best Transformers Movie By Far"

The film has been available to rent and purchase on Digital since October 16, 2018. Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon star in this hysterical comedy that takes us across the pond. While my review speaks for itself, I hope…"The Spy Who Dumped Me is On Blu-ray/DVD"
The genre-bending action comedy, The Spy Who Dumped Me, allows for Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon to take it to the next level. The film’s cold open sets the tone, introducing us to Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon) on the former’s birthday in Los Angeles while Drew (Justin Theroux) fights for his life in Vilnius. In addition to the cuts between the two, there’s the requisite flashbacks introducing us to their meet-cute. This also serves…"The Spy Who Dumped Me is Kick-Ass Fun"
