    TV Review: ‘Impeachment’ is an Engaging, Familiar Case

    Film Review: ‘Gully’ Strands Talented Young Cast on the Streets of L.A.

    Gully is the worst type of bad movie: Aimless, shapeless, ugly, and gratuitous. The movie has an idea of what kind of story it wants to tell and does almost nothing with it and takes on tricky subject matter without much commitment.

    Film Review: ‘Profile’ Takes On the Dark Corners of the Web

    Director Timur Bekmambetov uses the increasingly popular gimmick of setting his new movie Profile as if we are looking at the protagonist’s computer screen the entire time. This style of filmmaking seemed to be made popular by the effective horror movie Unfriended (from Bekmambetov) and was used well with 2018’s John Cho-led Searching (Bekmambetov also […] More

    Film Review: ‘Boogie’ Dribbles in Familiar Territory

    Boogie is the feature debut for writer-director Eddie Huang, who previously worked on the show Fresh Off the Boat. His first film plays like one of those debuts that are perfectly harmless and a solid-enough calling card, without delivering a showstopping movie. The culturally specific story at the heart of Boogie offers some nuance to […] More

    Film Review: After A lot of Noise, ‘Chaos Walking’ Hits Screens

    Chaos Walking’s chaotic journey to the big screen is finally over. The new dystopian thriller, directed by Doug Liman, was shot in 2017, but required reshoots, which caused release delays. Typically, though sometimes undeservedly, that’s a sign of trouble. It was finally set to release, but the pandemic caused the movie – like most others […] More
