Enola Holmes [2020] ★★½

While far from being great, there’s still something charming and irresistible about “Enola Holmes”, Netflix’s answer to the “Sherlock Holmes” franchise. It helps that it moves at a fast pace. It also helps to have Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) as Enola, Sherlock’s younger sister who also happens […]

7500 [2020] ★★½

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is on a plane. He plays a young American co-pilot who finds himself dealing with terrorists when his flight from Berlin to Paris is hijacked. Sounds familiar? That’s because you’ve seen movies like “7500” so many times before, from “Turbulence” and “Air Force One” in the […]

The Hater [2020] ★★½

This polish thriller currently streaming on Netflix juggles a lot of ideas at once, and at 135 minutes, it can be a bit too much, but it’s not a complete waste. In fact, it’s still entirely watchable, thanks to a solid performance by Maciej Musialowski, who plays a […]

Greyhound [2020] ★★½

It’s not as memorable as Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” or as emotional as Steven Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan”, but “Greyhound” gets the job done by delivering some pulse-pounding action scenes that needed to be experienced on the biggest screen possible (Apple TV + will have to do for now).

Space Jam [1996] ★★½

Call this a nostalgia review, but after I went through a roller-coaster of emotions while watching the fantastic Chicago Bulls documentary “The Last Dance”, I decided to stream Michael Jordan’s “Space Jam”, which I also found on Netflix. For those of you who grew up in the 90’s, […]

Fractured [2019] ★★½

Movies like “Fractured” have been around since…well…forever. Want more proof? Check out Alfred Hitchcock’s 1938 superior film “The Lady Vanishes” or its 2005 rip-off “Flightplan” starring Jodie Foster as a mother whose daughter goes missing on a flight from Berlin to America. Netflix’s “Fractured” falls somewhere in between. […]

The Occupant [2020] ★★½

The synopsis for this Spanish thriller doesn’t do it justice, at least the one being shared online. When I found it streaming on Netflix, I had to see for myself. As a result, this wasn’t half bad. In fact, if you enjoy films that move at a deliberately […]
