Let’s go back to an oldie but a goodie by discussing a newbie that is also a goodie! And also a grossie!
A movie about Insane Clown Posse, except the good news is that you don’t have to like Insane Clown Posse to enjoy or even understand the movie! Luck you.
Watch as Andy makes the likely ill-advised move of taking a potshot at one of 2018’s most beloved movies by holding it to a standard it was never interested in meeting!
Can a movie made in 1990 that’s only just now being released in theaters REALLY be called a 1990 movie? Maybe. But also maybe not. How about both? Either way, it’s a damn masterpiece.
A free association (sort of) visual essay documentary film about Jamaica in 2019, Jamaica in the 1800s, and how the latter has shaped the former into a land of beautiful contradictions.
Happy “Captain Marvel” weekend! In the first of Andy’s *three pieces* about the new Marvel movie, an appreciation for Brie Larson and her fondness of baked goods and weight training, and how all of that hard work (and not hard work) reflects on the screen.
Don’t let the list of very long, nigh-unpronouncable Icelandic names overwhelm or intimidate you away from seeing this excellent Icelandic dark comedy. (“Dark comedy” in Iceland is kinda like easy viewing, though.)
Sometimes you pay (literally, you, not me) to see a movie, and you get exactly what the title promises. Take “The Hole in the Ground.” It’s about a hole. In the ground. Boom, value.
Alternative tagline for this movie’s poster: “U Look Like A Monkey / And U Die Like 1 2.” You can have that for free. Wait, no: Royalties.
Matt Walsh as a leading man in a rom-com? It’s an idea so crazy it might just work, except that the movie in question only barely gets there with plot and story.
It took Peter Jackson over a decade, but he finally made a movie to match, and even outclass, his “Lord of the Rings” trilogy – a documentary about World War I, made as only a guy like Jackson could make it.
A film about a starving boy scrapping by to survive in Beirut isn’t the kind of film anyone’s happy to criticize. On the flip side, if you make that movie and you don’t want to be criticized, make a better movie.
Seven men. Six innocent. One guilty. One location. One night to sort it all out. One really long movie title. But hey, it gets the point across!
Of buffaloes, and boys, and western / martial arts revenge tropes. Also they have a grenade launcher. Take it from me, this one’s pretty wild.
I tried, guys. I promise you I tried. Oh, how I tried to give Vice, the new Adam McKay movie, a fair shake; tried not to read the movie as “The Big Short, but wicked extra, and also obnoxious.” But I couldn’t, because that’s exactly what it is, times ten, and don’t let any clever types try …
Preamble: Man, the DCEU movies are fucking bad. (Excepting Wonder Woman, which is good until it’s bad.) …okay, got that out of the way. Aquaman kinda rocks. Like Wonder Woman, Aquaman cradles its share of flaws and bad creative decisions, most of them involving the totally great Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who deserves to be a big huge movie star and …
I did, four years ago, write a review of Pawel Pawlikowski’s post-war masterpiece Ida, but I’m not certain it’s still online or if I ever even shared it on this website; that’s too bad, because it’d be nice to revisit my words for context for Cold War, Pawlikowski’s new film, which I imagine years from now I’ll also …
True story: On first hearing of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I wrote it off and put it out of my memory, thinking, “this sounds like a pretty naked excuse to put a bunch of different Spider-Man variations into a single movie for the purpose of moving lots of ancillary product, and also most Marvel movies aren’t …
