Film Reviews

Review: Aquaman

Aquaman is the sort of overstuffed extravaganza that’s so intent on hitting all the requisite superhero beats that it never develops a heartbeat of its own.

Film Reviews

Review: Mary Poppins Returns

Emily Blunt was the right choice to assume the Andrews mantle. As the magically endowed nanny who reappears in 1935 (25 years after the first film’s timeframe) to again aid the Banks family, she’s an absolute delight, retaining Andrews’ frosty demeanor but adding a spark of sly mischievousness to her interpretation.

Film Reviews

Review: Bumblebee

The switch provides the series with a breath of fresh air, but to state that the picture is in any way a remarkable achievement is absurd.

Film Reviews

Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

For those seeking nothing more than a rollicking good time, Bohemian Rhapsody largely gets the job done. But those looking for some depth – or, heck, even some historical context – will be sorely disappointed, as the film wreaks havoc on chronology, ignores key albums and songs.
