I have to say, I was quite surprised by this film. The trailer did nothing to make me want to see it, but alas, it is my job to see movies that I don't always want to see. I went into it with an open mind, but my suspicions were disappointingly confirmed about 20 minutes into the film when I found myself looking at my watch and letting my mind wander. Then, it happened. About 50 minutes into the movie there is an exchange that is so incredibly funny that I was pulled back in. And then...

(Limited theatrical run) Opioids are a dangerous thing. They are highly addictive and they are highly coveted. Because of that they have become big business, both legal and illegal. Crisis tells the story of the effect that opioids have on different people in different ways. One is a scientist asked to manipulate his numbers so a new opioid can hit the legal market, one is an undercover cop trying to stop the rampant spread of illegal sales, and one is a grieving mother who had no idea her son was close enough to the drug world to...

Judas and the Black Messiah

This is one of those films that is almost amazing. It comes so close in so many ways to being the kind of film that would win huge awards, but it just misses the mark. I'm sure this film will garner some nominations, but nothing like what it could have done if it had reached its full potential. The best part of the film is the acting. All of the primary cast deliver great performances. They are able to draw you in and make you feel for and understand their character's motivations. The...

Have you ever had that urge to just get away from it all? Go out to the middle of nowhere and start fresh? Well, this is a movie all about that. Too bad she picks one of the world's harshest climates to start over in. Firsts off, congratulations to Robin Wright on her feature film directorial debut. That is a huge accomplishment and should never be overlooked. I just wish the movie had turned out a little bit better than what it is. The story is told in a very choppy way....

I know the question you are all wanting answered. Does Liam Neeson have a certain set of skills in this movie? Of course he does! He's a one-man army versus the baddest of the bad in the Mexican Cartel. Now, if that is your only reason for wanting to see this movie, then go for it. Grab your popcorn, candy, and drink and enjoy. If you like that stuff, but you also want a smart film, well...this is not the movie you are looking for. While this flick is entertaining and somewhat suspenseful....

FATALE

Three decades ago a movie came out called Fatal Attraction. It was a huge hit and ended up getting six Oscar nominations. Now, 33 years later, this movie comes along with an almost identical plot. And while this film is decent, it doesn't hold a candle to the original. There is nothing overtly wrong or bad about this movie, it's just not amazing. It's one of those that you see and after it's over you say, "that was fine for what it was." It does have a few moments of suspense, and a few...

VANGUARD is the best comedy of the year. There is only one problem. It's not supposed to be a comedy. From the amateurish CGI lion, to the car chase scenes filmed at 30 miles per hour and then sped up on film, to the early 1990's-looking graphics superimposed onto large computer monitors, it looks like the effects budget for this movie was somewhere around $36.25 (plus tax). But the good news is the bad effects make for some great laughs. Aside from the effects (and some truly atrocious, yet refreshingly hilarious, acting by...

THE EMPTY MAN

It must be near the end of October. Why? Because even in the middle of a pandemic Hollywood still manages to push out bad horror flicks. (That, and I looked at the calendar just before I wrote this). While this is not your typical, do-something-stupid, make-all-the-wrong-choices, the-person-acting-like-a-jerk-is-about-to-die horror flick, it tries to be smart and moody, but it just falls flat. What makes this one worse than most is that it is nearly a full hour longer than the average horror flick. Most of them clock in at 80 or 90 minutes. Sometimes...

Not to make this too simple, but, for the most part, if you've seen one Liam Neeson one-man-against-the-world movie, you've seen them all. It is true, he has a special set of skills, and he uses them all in every film he does. It would be nice to see him use another set of skills by playing a character of another type, but he knows these flicks are his wheelhouse, and so do we. I would rank this film somewhere in the middle of his similar films. It's not great, but it isn't terrible either. It's...

When a feature film clocks in at 80 minutes you can be assured of one of two things. It is either going to be jam-packed with action and suspense, or it should have been a short film that got stretched into an 80-minute film with 30 minutes of fluff. SHORTCUT is jam-packed with fluff. To put it in perspective, the opening credits, (where nothing happens), are four minutes long. The end credits are 6 1/2 minutes long. Ladies and gentlemen, that makes up nearly 15% of the film's total running time! Add...
