Imagine time travelling to a period of time you’ve always wanted to visit. Maybe it was the Norman Rockwell 50’s, or the synthy 80’s, or maybe it was the Paleolithic era because you love dinosaurs so damn much, or, since you’re trying to stick out with your hypothetical answer, the…

It ain’t easy to bring some loftier (and deities bless, original) sci-fi ideas to audiences around the world. Just ask BLADE RUNNER 2049. So, even if my own enjoyment of DUNE: PART ONE didn’t quite match that of many other audience members who had the chance to experience Denis Villeneuve’s…

On a beautiful yet isolated farm deep in the heart of Iceland, Maria (Noomi Rapace) and her husband Ingvar (Hilmir Snærr Guðnason) find themselves facing a miracle. Or possibly an affront to Mother Nature herself. The hows and whys of the miracle/abomination child now in their care means little to…

The fight for true equality and justice in America is a story that continues to unfold in this modern era of ours. It is a story that has its fair share of noticeable villains, heroes, prophets, traitors, and victims. Of course, the deeper you dig past the obvious icons and…

Picture this: the night is pitch black outside; you’re in a beautifully spacious yet aesthetically cold home; a filmmaker and his girlfriend are on the brink of self-destruction, constantly arguing (then reconciling) between every room they can get into. The tension is palpable but these people keep screaming and cursing…

There’s a mystery at hand in THE LITTLE THINGS but beyond that there’s not much else to hold onto during and after director/writer John Lee Hancock’s film comes to a close. A January release in this still COVID-19 afflicted new year, THE LITTLE THINGS stood out amongst what one expects…
