Mediocre

In The Shadow Of The Moon [2019] ★★

In the era of Christopher Nolan and Denis Villeneuve, a science-fiction thriller like Netflix’s “In The Shadow Of The Moon” may seem underwhelming, and understandably so. We’ve been spoiled over and over again with mind-bending movies that kept us talking for weeks (think “Inception”, “Interstellar” and “Arrival”, to […]

The Laundromat [2019] ★★

Steven Soderbergh is a director that I’ve greatly admire over the years, which is why it’s difficult for me to admit that I couldn’t entirely enjoy his latest satire “The Laundromat”, streaming on Netflix.

Spenser Confidential [2020] ★★

Walhberg plays an […]

Get In (Aka Furie) [2020] ★★

Netflix’s french thriller “Get In” has an intriguing premise: when they return from a vacation, a family discovers that a couple is now occupying their house. They can’t come in, and, worst of all, the authorities won’t help them. This incident causes the family man (who happens to […]

Murder Mystery [2019] ★★

If this movie was a theatrical release, I would have probably given it a lower rating. But let’s be honest: movies like “Murder Mystery” belong on Netflix and I’m fine with that. It’s the kind of mediocre movies that I wouldn’t pay money to see on the big […]
