Never had I seen something that seemed to capture the fun, imagination and scale that this series deserved quite so well. Could Detective Pikachu finally be the first great video game film adaptation?

Shazam!

There’s always been this idea, this child-like wonder of what it would be like to be a superhero. What it would be like to fly, to shoot lasers out of your eyes, to be bullet-proof, to have super strength and a strong heart. We’re in an age of comic book movies where we see that…Read More→

Based on the memoir by Garrard Conley, Joel Edgerton’s Boy Erased is another powerful milestone for the LGBTQ community as it touches on not only internal conflict, but the awful process known as conversion therapy that many are still subject to.

Halloween (2018)

Bad Times at the El Royale Review

What’s better than a good old-fashioned mystery, right?
