Tom Cruise, as Navy pilot Maverick, stares at sun setting near his Super Hornet air craft.

Top Gun: Maverick (2022) Review

Why is this film in the billion-dollar club? Top Gun: Maverick is spectacular! When I watched this in the theater, I flinched and shouted from the tension onscreen, which only happens when I’m on a roller coaster or airplane. So, it was super effective. I have not seen Top Gun (1986). Yet, I managed to enjoy this without feeling lost or confused, a testament to … Continue reading Top Gun: Maverick (2022) Review

Hotshot #2: A Hero’s Welcome – Part 2

The cover of this comic tells you everything you need to know. Hotshot suffers a severe beatdown from a behemoth of a man known as The Void. I don’t know who this guy is or why he’s obsessed with darkness and “Extinguishing the light.” What I am certain about, is his ability to throw hands and everything but the kitchen sink. There’s a lot of … Continue reading Hotshot #2: A Hero’s Welcome – Part 2

Turning Red (2022) Review

Pixar can do no wrong. They changed how I view storytelling. How is it possible to make film for everyone? This is what family entertainment looks like! Turning Red is the cutest and darnedest thing. Meilin is a 13-year-old girl that transforms into a giant red panda. This proves to be an inconvenience as she is very emotional and rightfully so. The filmmakers did a great job making me … Continue reading Turning Red (2022) Review

Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings

This movie is the reason I got Marvel fatigue. It’s not the quality but more so the formula. For years, the studio pumped out cookie cutter films. How many times can heroes fight carbon copies of themselves? Tired of color-coded CG fights where the villain is killed off. Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings is no different. There is no consistent tone. … Continue reading Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings

Will Smith Unleashes “New Form” on Chris Rock

Hi, I’m Jeremy and I’m an asshole in recovery. I hold no position of moral authority. It is my sentiment Will Smith should have pulled Chris Rock aside and had a conversation backstage. There are a ton of opinions online about what transpired, some of which I find problematic. Let me be clear, I indulge in the buffoonery by sharing memes and telling jokes. This is … Continue reading Will Smith Unleashes “New Form” on Chris Rock

Wer (2014) Review

This was a recommendation from the talented E.M. Lacey. She and I are both fans of werewolves. Wer released in 2014 and is a reimagining of the classic monster. The writer and director, William Brent Bell (The Boy, Stay Alive, Devil Inside) took a more grounded approach. I found it to be very effective and unconventional for this particular genre. The “found footage” style is … Continue reading Wer (2014) Review

Don’t Breathe 2 (2021) Review

Someone with a nose full of cocaine when they green lit this movie. To add insult to injury, the sequel only took six years. It pissed me off with its poor quality and convoluted plot. The blind man, Norman Nordstrom (Stephen Lang), returned to do fatalities on home invaders. Its basically the same formula yet they managed to screw up every single aspect of the … Continue reading Don’t Breathe 2 (2021) Review

The Eternals (2021) Review

I don’t know why writers use terms like “immortal” when the characters die so easy. Marvel introduced yet another cosmic street gang that live for a long time and never age. It’s enough people in this movie for them to start their own football team. These alien beings were credited as shepherds of humanity throughout history. When old enemies arrived, they teamed up to defend … Continue reading The Eternals (2021) Review

Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) Review

Before we get into the review, my apologies to the AMC employee that had to mop up the pool of nerd sweat I secreted. There was too much cinematic goodness to behold. Spider-Man: No Way Home is the best entry to date. It is the culmination of storytelling for the wise cracking web-slinger going back nearly 20 years. Underage viewers won’t appreciate the nostalgia this … Continue reading Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) Review
