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, […]

Horse Girl [2020] ★½

“Horse Girl” is yet another Netflix movie that tries to juggle a lot of themes at once, only to end up falling flat on its face. Alison Brie co-wrote the script and stars as a socially isolated woman who becomes convinced that she is the cloned version of […]

Scoob! [2020] ★★

As someone who grew up with classic Scooby Doo episodes when they used to air on Cartoon Network back in the 90’s, I was kind of looking forward to a modern revival, mainly because it was advertised as an “origin” story. As it turns out, I enjoyed seeing […]

The Decline [2020] ★★

Netflix’s survival thriller “The Decline” had me going for a while, mostly because it relates to the world we live in right now. A bunch of strangers travel to a remote survivalist training camp in order to prepare for the next epidemic/economic crash (how ironic). Then an accident […]

The Wrong Missy [2020] ★

Wow. Where do I begin? I may have just witnessed the worst movie of the decade so far (“Like A Boss”, you’re off the hook). This lazy, painfully unfunny comedy starring David Spade and Lauren Lapkus will have you cringing for 90 minutes (if you can make it […]

Capone [2020] ★★

It sounds like Oscar bait: Tom Hardy starring in this fact-based story about notorious gangster Al Capone, who spent his final year suffering from dementia and constant paranoia, before his death at the age of 48. It’s a juicy role for Hardy, the kind awards were created for. […]

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 […]

Coffee & Kareem [2020] ★

Netflix’s “Coffee & Kareem” is only 88 minutes long (including the credits). So why on earth does it feel like an endurance test? It has none of the qualities of a decent comedy, and it’s a long way from Ed Helms’ “The Hangover”. He plays a police officer […]

Secret Obsession [2019] ★

Yet another preposterous Netflix thriller about a young woman who returns home following an accident that almost ended her life. She can’t remember who she was or how she ended up here, so it’s up to her husband to reintroduce her to her life. If you can’t figure […]
