‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ plays it safe for an underwhelming revival

For years, everyone has known who to call if there is something strange in their neighborhood. Just in case anyone forgot, we now have “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” as a reminder, the newest entry in the Ghostbusters franchise. With a tone similar to the original, almost a little too similar, and a carbon copy of the original film’s third act, there is a lot to criticize. However, if you are a huge

    Conflicted ‘House of Gucci’ nowhere near as seductive as it promises

Conflicted ‘House of Gucci’ nowhere near as seductive as it promises

“Strong family makes a strong business.” Much like its central family, the “House of Gucci” should have it all: glamour, thrills and, above all, fun. A biographical crime drama directed by Ridley Scott weaving a decades-long tragedy of betrayal, familial strife and murder plus a cast including Lady Gaga and plenty of other heavyweights like Adam Driver, Al Pacino and Jared Leto. In many ways, it all sounds too good to

    No true laughs or style in lackluster ‘Red Notice’

No true laughs or style in lackluster ‘Red Notice’

“It doesn’t matter what you do, only matters what they think you’ve done.” Writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber’s  “Red Notice” is the kind of movie others make fun of for existing. It has big stars like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, yet the result comes off as an unintentional parody of big-budget adventure movies. There are exotic locales, supposedly sexy stars and banter meant to deliver a laugh-a-minute,

‘The French Dispatch’ captures journalism in a bizarrely beautiful way

There are not many times I get to write for a newspaper about a movie about a newspaper, so I am going to do my best to make the most of the situation. “The French Dispatch” is the newest film by director Wes Anderson, and there is so much to love. Anthology films come and go, but of course, we could count on this cast and crew to deliver one

Silk Sonic makes audience swoon in soulful ’70s tribute

Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak met in 2017 while touring on Mars’s 24k Magic World Tour. Their friendship blossomed from that tour, and the pair’s mutual appreciation for ’70s era soul led to the formation of duo Silk Sonic. When the hit single “Leave the Door Open” dropped, the collective internet began salivating in anticipation for the full-length album, “An Evening with Silk Sonic.” While Mars needs no introduction due

‘Dune’ adapts the classic sci-fi story in breathtaking fashion

By Logan Thomson Frank Herbert’s seminal science fiction novel “Dune” is comparable to only a few in its genre in regard to impact and influence. Long considered “unfilmable” after numerous projects were canned or unsuccessful, 2021 has given us another adaptation from Denis Villenueve. With modern technology, a slew of A-list talent and an immense passion for the series, the acclaimed filmmaker successfully adheres to the spirit of this beloved

    Haunting ‘Spencer’ is a passionate, aching portrait of its icon

Haunting ‘Spencer’ is a passionate, aching portrait of its icon

“Here in this house, there is no future. Past and the present are the same thing.” What does it mean to have lived nearly your entire adult life under the microscope of the media? To be a public face for a system that restricts you tightly? The same system which seeks to swallow up your sons? These are the questions at the core of director Pablo Larraín’s “Spencer,” a daunting

Season three of ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ gives the show eternal life

Season three of “What We Do in the Shadows,” also known as the greatest television show ever created, has finally wrapped up and shows no signs of becoming stale anytime soon. What started as a hilariously dark first season has blossomed into an unexpectedly heartfelt, but still hilariously dark, third season. There is no show quite like “What We Do in the Shadows,” and after this season, there never will

    Chloé Zhao disappoints with ‘Eternals’ introduction to MCU

Chloé Zhao disappoints with ‘Eternals’ introduction to MCU

Though cinematically different and admittedly not the worst Marvel movie to grace the big screen, Chloé Zhao’s “Eternals” is rushed, lacks character development and attempts to take on too many storylines than a movie its length can handle. The film follows a group of 10 semi-immortal Eternals: Ajak, Sersi, Ikaris, Kingo, Sprite, Phastos, Makkari, Druig, Gilgamesh and Thena, and their journey to eliminate the invasive Deviants. Both the Eternals and Deviants
