“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 […]
Many movies have tackled the process of filmmaking. In this post, we go through some of my favorites.
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 […]
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 […]
It’s not the best series you’ll ever see about Hollywood, but I can’t say I wasn’t entertained from start to finish either. Creator Ryan Murphy and his collaborators have crafted a lavish limited series about old Hollywood, which feels damn near irresistible. The time is post-World War II […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
If you love movies about music, then this list is for you.
