Mediocre

The Hustle [2019] ★★

I’ve tried to make my peace with the overflow of remakes during the past few years, but sometimes it isn’t easy, especially when it’s a comedy that mostly falls flat. “The Hustle”, starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson as two con artists battling out in the South of […]

X-Men: Dark Phoenix [2019] ★★

Judging from the early reviews and reactions, you’d think that “Dark Phoenix”, the final installment in the “X-Men” franchise (at least until Disney takes over), is a complete disaster. It isn’t. But it’s not great either. I think the film’s biggest mistake is that it happens to fall […]

Brightburn [2019] ★★

Do you ever watch a movie that turns out to be instantly forgettable? Case in point: “Brightburn”, a completely watchable but equally forgettable superhero/horror film from producer James Gunn that never truly reaches its full potential. Damn shame if you ask me, because judging from the trailer, the […]

The Perfect Date [2019] ★★

I may have tweeted about my hate for Noah Centineo’s Netflix movies (he really is the same character in every film), but if you’re looking for a guilty pleasure that you’ll probably end up forgetting the next day, “The Perfect Date” may well be that movie for you. […]

Hellboy [2019] ★★

If you’d told me last year that I would be reviewing a “Hellboy” movie in 2019, I would have wanted it to be a sequel directed by Guillermo Del Toro. His two films were nothing short of entertaining, and Ron Perlman fully embodied the character of Hellboy (to […]

Five Feet Apart [2019] ★★

I bet you couldn’t wait for the next movie about two sick teens who fall in love. I’m kidding, of course, but if you’ve seen “The Fault in our Stars”, then you probably know what to expect from a movie like “Five Feet Apart”. Personally I’ve enjoyed the […]

Bird Box [2018] ★★

Let’s start the year with something that’s been bugging me for a few days. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good hype when it comes to movies, as long as it’s justified. In the case of “Bird Box”, Netflix’s latest apocalyptic thriller starring Sandra Bullock, the hype […]

Venom [2018] ★★

First the good news: “Venom” isn’t as bad as some early reviews led me to believe. The “Catwoman” comparison caught me off guard, but now that I’ve seen it, I can definitely vouch for “Venom”. Unlike Halle Berry, Tom Hardy makes a believable Eddie Brock, the everyday reporter […]
