Review: Little (2019)

Little. This movie is taking a couple of big risks. Its two leads are really only tested in television (Issa Rae from Insecure and Marsai Martin from Black-ish), so I’m not sure if this movie has the starpower that might draw … Continue reading

Review: Hellboy (2019)

Hellboy (2019) I’m a huge fan of the Hellboy franchise. The two prior films were really enjoyable and lately I’ve dove into the comic books as well and there’s a lot to love there. We’ve been waiting for the third … Continue reading

Review: Captive State

Captive State. This movie is entirely under the radar, no one is talking about it. That’s usually not a good sign, so I went to the theaters to check it out for myself. The gist. 10 years ago, aliens conquered the … Continue reading
