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 […]
