January sucks. There’s no other way to say it. Aside from Glass, which I’m not going to rush out and see since I haven’t seen Split and the only time I saw Unbreakable was 13 years ago, January looks to be pretty boring at the cinema. In lieu of a lot of new film reviews, … Continue reading The Case for “First Reformed” by Nate Blake
By Nate Blake I hate that this has to be said, but the 2017 film that impacted the industry the most wasn’t Dunkirk or Get Out or Lady Bird. Nearly a year after all of those films competed for Best Picture at the 90th Oscars, it seems clear that audiences, actors, guild members and even … Continue reading Is Hollywood Undergoing A “Greatest Showman” Transformation?

Two hours later, we had our … Continue reading “Mary Poppins Returns” review by Nate and Alex Blake
