Oxygen [2021] ★★½

If you’re familiar with movies like “Buried” (starring Ryan Reynolds) and the superior “127 Hours” (starring James Franco), then you probably know what to expect from Netflix’s latest french Sci-Fi thriller “Oxygen”. Melanie Laurent commands the screen as a woman who wakes up in a cryogenic chamber with […]

Stowaway [2021] ★★

The Father [2020] ★★★½

Led by a phenomenal performance by Anthony Hopkins, “The Father” is a worthy Oscar contender and one of the finest films of the 2020. I cannot remember the last time a movie held me spellbound from start to finish, but then again, not many movies feature great performances […]

Deadly Illusions [2021] ★

In the 90’s, a movie like “Deadly Illusions” would have gone straight to cable TV. In 2021, a movie like “Deadly Illusions” should have went straight to trash. It baffles me that a movie like this one even exists. It baffles me that a group of people got […]
