Well.

I love Spider-Man. I thought Spider-Man Unlimited was a cool cartoon as a kid. I grew up reading Ultimate Spider-Man, even into Miles Morales's introduction and onto the end of the Ultimate Universe. I think the Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man ride at U...

A lot is repeated in Jim Jarmusch's The Dead Don't Die, often to hilarious effect. They're not catchphrases, more like observations of those who practically sigh at the end of world. Or like that story or factoid that you've probably told about 25 times...

In the trilogy capper of the "Eastrail 177 Trilogy" (or the Unbreakable trilogy, if you prefer), David Dunn (Bruce Willis, Unbreakable), Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy, Split), and Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson, Unbreakable) find themselves locked together in an a...

Crap.

I hate when I can't fully celebrate a great film. By all counts, this is tremendous filmmaking. I think the last time I was this absorbed in a film was La La Land--completely entranced so it feels like there's barely a gap between you and the action on screen. I r...

In recent days, I started to feel extremely unsure of what I wanted to do with my life. Was I actually working to fulfill my "calling," or have I been on a long path to nowhere. I think my dream would be to be a film critic and write scripts and stories, and do some fr...

The Greatest Showman and I have had an interesting history. When I first heard about it, it was my most anticipated movie of 2017. Then I saw the first trailer and was off-put by the pop nature of the soundtrack. This wasn't what I expected from the lyricists of La La...

We are knee-deep in the new age of Star Wars. The Last Jedi is the eighth episode, the ninth live-action theatrical film, and the third film without creator George Lucas (though he served as a consultant on Episode VII, most of his ideas were ignored). After The Force...

All the Money in the World was not even on my radar before Kevin Spacey was removed from the finished film in the wake of numerous worrisome sexual harassment allegations. Shortly after the Spacey allegations came out, though, director Ridley Scott (The Martian, Alien)...

A handful of young British soldiers walk the eerily quiet and empty streets of Dunkirk, France. Though the war rages on, this seems to be a rare moment of peace. Flyers rain from somewhere in the sky, obviously from the enemy. A red "X" marks Dunkirk: arrows point at i...

In 1990, Tim Curry scarred children forever as Pennywise the Dancing Clown in ABC's 1990 adaptation of Stephen King's brick of a novel, It. Now, 27 years later, just like the eponymous character, It returns to theaters.

This fall's It is directed by Andy Muschetti (Mama...
