Corpse Bride – This week’s mini review is brought to you by my lovely fiance and gamemaster extraordinaire.
No Time To Die is a strong, but safe conclusion, to Daniel Craig’s tenure as James Bond. Smart, funny, and well written, Cary Joji Fukunaga brings this iteration to a close with the help of Rami Malek, Ana De Armas, and a host of other A-listers in this enjoyable Bond flick.
Venom: Let There be Carnage – A fun popcorn movie that excels where the original failed by leaning into the banter and relationship between Eddie Brock and Venom. The “Lethal Protectors” will return and I’m all for it.
Free Guy – better than it should be, Ryan Reynolds and Jodie Comer headline this videogame / social commentary / comedy hybrid.
Cruella – A smart and well rounded cast and crew turned what could have been another live action remake flop into an incredibly enjoyable movie.
They Live – Roddy Piper and Keith David share the screen in this cult classic from John Carpenter. A must watch for fans of Sci-Fi. They Live, We Sleep.
Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings – Another summer weekend, another Marvel Movie. #ShangChi is best at borrowing from other movies & doesn’t make as solid of an impact as I would have liked but is entertaining nonetheless. #MoviesNotFilms
The Night House – Rebecca Hall stars in this original and refreshing horror story from David Bruckner. With dread and suspense aplenty, The Night House defies the haunted house subgenre.
Reminiscence – A very familiar concept with a promising twist that ultimately fails to deliver. Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Ferguson headline this Westworld flavored noir drama from Warner Bros and HBO Max.
Batman : The Long Halloween PT 1 & 2 – Jensen Ackles delivers in his debut as the World’s Greatest Detective. The stunning adaptation of the classic graphic novel will entertain fans of the Dark Knight, new and old.
