‘The Personal History of David Copperfield’ Movie Review

Armando Iannucci has spent most of his career creating characters who embrace cruelty. While some feel it’s off-putting to continually in this realm, most think that he’s a realist. Iannucci recognizes that it’s a cruel world full of people with…

‘Tenet’ Movie Review

Tenet is the most Christopher Nolan picture ever. It’s a one hundred and fifty minute Nolan fever dream. In some respects, the film is a greatest hits album of Nolan’s filmography. Sprinkle in a narrative involving time-travel with dialogue that’s…

‘Lovecraft Country’ Episode 2 Television Review

Lovecraft Country is quickly ascending the lists of critics worldwide as one of the best shows of the year. What standout isn’t the fantastic performances and visuals throughout each episode, it’s the tremendous writing found in each episode. Misha Green is…

‘The Burnt Orange Heresy’ Movie Review

The Burnt Orange Heresy certainly is inspired by some excellent source material. Writer Scott B. Smith adapted the screenplay from the 1971 crime novel written by Charles Willeford, which at the time was well received. The book is at times…

Review: ‘Chemical Hearts’

Chemical Hearts arrives on Amazon Prime Video this Friday with little fanfare and with good reason. This adaptation of Krystal Sutherland’s ‘Our Chemical Hearts’ fails to offer anything remarkable to a genre of film that is bursting with titles. If you’ve…

‘Words on Bathroom Walls’ Movie Review

Words on Bathroom Walls offers an interesting perspective about mental illness. I’m not too sure that is enough to reason to see the film. While the film does do a great job getting inside the mind of a mentally ill man,…

Review: ‘The One and Only Ivan’

Review: ‘ Lovecraft Country’ Episode 1

First impressions are everything. When the latest take on The Watchmen debut on HBO not too long ago, it took all of 10 minutes to realize this was a special show. With Lovecraft Country, it took all of 2 minutes. Misha Green’s Lovecraft Country doesn’t resemble…
