Final Girl - Movie Review

Final Girl - Movie ReviewIn the opening scene of Final Girl, a little girl talks rather openly about herself and her feelings, acknowledging that both her mother and father are dead. This fact, disturbingly enough, does not bother her nor does illicit any emotion from her. Shit happens, she says. The unshaven  ...

Straight Outta Compton - Movie Review

Straight Outta Compton - Movie ReviewThe story being told in F. Gary Gray’s Straight Outta Compton is as relevant today as it was a generation ago when five young men turned brutally honest rhymes, hardcore beats, and the frustration of living in their inner-city Los Angeles neighborhood into music: the most   ...

Ricki and the Flash - Movie Review

Ricki and the Flash - Movie ReviewMeryl Streep has finally met her match. Yes, the brilliant actress with the nearly embarrassing overabundance of acting and singing talent is not super-human after all. Contrary to popular belief, Meryl Streep has her kryptonite. The toxic concoction that that has been discovered to drain the  ...

Exeter - Movie Review

Exeter - Movie REviewExeter, a horror film that features a makeshift exorcism and something equivalent to human protein shakes, is potentially the shot in the arm the genre needs. It’s bloody, somewhat humorous, and ends with a twist that many won’t see coming. I’m not suggesting that the movie is   ...

Amy - Movie Review

Amy - Movie ReviewThere’s a prophetic line in Amy Winehouse’s grammy award-winning song, Rehab that is as telling about her own doomed fate as it is damning to the men in her life. She wrote the song at a critical juncture as her rocket ride to stardom was fizzling from the ravages of drug ...

Ted 2 - Movie Review - Movie Review

Ted 2 - Movie ReviewOh, the humanity. The foul-mouthed kid’s becomes a man. It should come as no surprise that Ted 2 is an overly stuffed and meandering event. After all, it is a sequel very few outside of the studio asked for. It has little hype to live up to and, as a result, will probably be ...
