Remember the 1980s? Steven Spielberg does. In fact, you could even argue Spielberg created the '80s. At first glance, Spielberg’s new movie “Ready Player One” isn’t much more than an excuse to wallow in the pop culture of the decade of excess. But, once this sucker gets ... [More]

Adapting video games into movies has not resulted in much box office or creative success. At the top of the heap and the closest thing you could come to a qualified success was “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” a modest hit that starred Angelina Jolie and came out 17 years ago (added to the li... [More]

At its best, science fiction explores the otherworldly to teach us a little something about ourselves and what it means to be human. It can also be pretty good at scaring the crap out of us. “Annihilation” is a movie that succeeds at doing both. It’s a visually stunning film that ... [More]

Sometimes, a movie’s importance eclipses its quality. “Black Panther” is a really solid superhero movie in and of itself. It’s got the same problems most superhero movies have, especially when the computer-generated chaos swings into full gear. But, “Black Panther&rdq... [More]

Well, we made it. After three years, we’ve reached the end of the “Fifty Shades” trilogy with “Fifty Shades Freed.” But, before we examine this cinematic equivalent of a wet blanket being dropped onto the sidewalk from a third-story window, let’s take a look back... [More]

As the DC superheroes desperately try to mimic the cinematic success of Marvel, their rollout of films has been like watching a Fiat try to race a Ferrari. Probably the biggest mistake they’ve made is having director Zack Snyder be the architect of the DC cinematic universe. Snyder as a dire... [More]

The live-action family-film has become a bit of an endangered species, especially ones with genuine heart and sentiment. It’s like stumbling across a dodo bird in your backyard. “Wonder” falls into that rare category and scores without falling into the trap of being overly sappy o... [More]

Thor has always been a bit of an odd man out in the Avengers crew. He’s the only one not from Earth, his extended family causes a whole lot of the problems and he’s got the best hair. Thor is gamely played by Chris Hemsworth and certainly holds his own when the crew comes together, but ... [More]

Several years ago, Stephen Spielberg took over the film “A.I. Artificial Intelligence,” a film that was being developed by Stanley Kubrick before he died. The results were mixed at best and the lesson seemed to be when filmmakers cross-pollinate, you’re likely going to end up with ... [More]

There is so much wrong with “The Snowman,” I thought I would first focus on the one positive just to be a decent guy. The movie is grandly and unapologetically Scandinavian (albeit with an English-speaking cast). Set in Norway and directed by a Swede (Tomas Alfredson of “Let the R... [More]
