Movie Review - Sicario: Day of the Soldado

I never saw 2015's "Sicario" in theaters, I only knew it by its reputation as a movie that was unfairly overlooked at the Oscars that year. I watched the film in...

Movie Review - Ocean’s 8

Movie Review - Adrift

Movie Review - Adrift

Movie Review - A Quiet Place

Movie Review - A Quiet Place

I really liked "Don't Breathe," the horror movie from 2016 with the blind antagonist and potential victims who had to be careful to not make a sound. That movie had...

Movie Review - Ready Player One

Movie Review - Ready Player One

It's no accident that "Ready Player One" opened on Easter weekend, as this movie is obsessed with Easter Eggs. Not the kind one paints and puts in a basket, but...
