Bombshell (2019)

It is tough to criticize a movie about the empowerment of women and the Me Too movement. Although if you are going to throw a film at us about the importance of the issues at hand, pick something better than Bombshell. Hailed as one of 2019’s best movies, based on the subject material and the … More Bombshell (2019)

Cats (2019)

On some level, you got to feel bad that Cats came out in 2019. In a world run by social media and memes, Cats picked a terrible time to be awful. I was chomping at the bit to catch this movie, not because I was excited to see it, but because I needed to know … More Cats (2019)

Gotti (2018)

It seems like forever ago, yet it was only two years ago. John Travolta received a whole ton of flack for his performance as John Gotti in Gotti. Despite the fact I knew this movie wasn’t the type I would enjoy, I foolishly gave it a shot anyway. I blame the desire to watch the … More Gotti (2018)

Emma (2020)

It was hard to watch Emma (2020) starring Anya Taylor-Joy without thinking about Emma (1996) starring Gwyneth Paltrow. I remember seeing that older movie while in high school, so the biggest question I got today … More Emma (2020)

Outbreak (1995)

In case you haven’t figured it out by now, sports and movies have been a significant part of my life since I can remember. Now that I’ve reached my late thirties, there so many movies I haven’t seen or heard of. My hope is that I get the chance to someday. The movie Outbreak appeared … More Outbreak (1995)

Contagion (2011)

This review was written in March 2020. By this time, the world has been bogged down by a pandemic for about a month. Today’s news and case counts are eerily similar to the epidemic that strikes the globe in the 2011 movie Contagion. I saw this movie during its original run at the theatre and … More Contagion (2011)

The Way Back (2020)

The Way Back is not your typical sports drama. It is also not your usual Ben Affleck role. Filming this particular movie had to be gut-wrenching and liberating for Affleck, who has had his addiction issues play out in the public eye. This basketball drama probably isn’t for the kids, since it is littered with … More The Way Back (2020)
