We wanted to be excited about the new movie, You People, which just came out on Netflix. It has a talented cast (including Eddie Murphy, Jonah Hill, Lauren London, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, David Duchovny and Nia Long, among others,) and it was directed by Black-ish creator Kenya Barris (who also co-wrote the movie with Hill.) The film is an updated version of Look Who's Coming to Dinner. There's plenty of material to work with here regarding race, religion, and other differences. However, the final product falls flat. Hill and London play Ezra Cohen and Amira Mohammed, a couple who meet thanks... Read more →

The late Chadwick Boseman thrilled audiences around the world in 2018 in the first Black Panther film, with his portrayal of T'Challa, the ruler of Wakanda. It was perfect casting, as the actor's own nobility, charm, grace, and charisma poured through in every scene. The rest of the cast was also tremendous with stellar performances from Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, and Angela Bassett, among others. The movie was directed and co-written by Ryan Coogler, and when you added it all together, the result is one of the biggest highlights of the MCU. It was a movie that had... Read more →

We haven't had much luck finding anything to watch on NBC's Peacock streaming service this year. That's fine, because we're not paying extra for it as part of our cable package. However, the trailer for Meet Cute seemed like it might be a mindlessly entertaining way to pass the time on a rainy afternoon. After all, it stars Kaley Cuoco, whom we enjoyed in The Big Bang Theory and The Flight Attendant, as well as SNL alum Pete Davidson, who always seems oddly watchable, although we're still not sure if he's funny. Besides, the movie is only 89 minutes long,... Read more →

Our crew has been eagerly awaiting Marvel's big three movies for this year (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) for what seems like ages. Doctor Strange was a disappointing mess, but we had faith that Thor would be a nice rebound. Were we right? Let's discuss... (We'll try to keep this as spoiler-free as possible.) Plot: Thor is looking to retire and focus on finding the inner peace that continues to elude him. His quest for tranquility is interrupted by the arrival of Gorr the God Butcher. (You can probably...

Doctor Stephen Strange has been busy the last few years. He helped the Avengers save the universe from Thanos, and then he and Spider-Man got into a little trouble with the multiverse last year. Now the sorcerer is back with his first solo adventure since 2016, with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Star Benedict Cumberbatch can do little wrong around here, but this movie is a disappointing mess. Disclaimer: We'll do our best to keep this review spoiler-free. Plot: The movie finds Doctor Strange having to save a mysterious girl named America Chavez, who is currently being chased... Read more →

As longtime Doctor Who fans, with a fondness for the Back to the Future and Terminator franchises, we were intrigued by the trailer for the new Netflix movie, The Adam Project. (out now) The film stars Ryan Reynolds as a time-traveling pilot from 2050 named Adam Reed who crash lands in his own past in 2022 to rescue someone, and then has a chance to save society as a whole. His main partner in the adventure is his 12-year-old self, and they also get the chance to deal with some family trauma along the way. What results is a fun... Read more →

Listen, we're not trying to be rude, but if you're not a child of the 80's, you should probably move on the other posts on our site, because this review of 8-Bit Christmas, and the movie itself, aren't aimed at you. For everyone who did grow up in that crazy decade, how many times have you seen A Christmas Story? You know the one - a little kid in the 1950's named Ralphie spends the entire film trying to get his dream Christmas present: a Red Ryder BB gun. He goes through all sorts of adventures in pursuit of that... Read more →

It's easy to see what Netflix was thinking with their new movie, Red Notice: An art theft/action combo always sounds like a promising premise. Make Dwayne Johnson, Gal Godot, and Ryan Reynolds your three main leads, and that should be enough star power to entertain audiences of all ages. It sounds good in theory, but does it work in practice? Let's discuss... Warning: Spoilers Ahead Plot Summary: Marc Antony supposedly gave Cleopatra three bejeweled eggs as a wedding present. One egg is in a museum, one is owned by a private collector, and one is hidden away somewhere. There's a... Read more →

(Warning: This review contains mild spoilers.) When The Sopranos went off the air in 2007, many of the show's fans were hopeful that the ambiguous ending would provide an opening for a reunion of some sort down the road. Those hopes seemed to vanish when powerhouse star James Gandolfini died in 2013. How could you possibly revisit this world without Tony Soprano himself? Creator David Chase appeared prepared to walk away from this story for good. However, he eventually decided to revisit it with the prequel, The Many Saints of Newark, which is now in theaters and also streaming on... Read more →

We've been fans of Karen Gillan since she first appeared on Doctor Who as the 11th Doctor's companion, Amy Pond. Amy was a strong woman who could handle herself in any adventure. Her time with the Doctor led to moments of both humor and heartache, all of which Gillan pulled off beautifully. Of course, the actress went on to global fame as Nebula in the MCU movies, and her star continues to rise. Gillan currently stars in the new Netflix movie, Gunpowder Milkshake (out now), where she plays a hitwoman named Sam. How one feels about this movie will likely... Read more →
