Review: Tenet

Tenet is a movie that I had been anxiously awaiting for since the first teaser dropped. I'm something of a Christopher Nolan fan. While some his ambitious, high concept films are among my favorites (Inception, Interstellar) and Dark Knight is a classic genre-blending piece of cinema, I haven't seen all of his movies. Thus far,... Continue Reading →

[Review] Star Trek Beyond

Star Trek Beyond finds itself in an unenviable position in the hotly-contested Summer blockbuster season.

Review: Hercules (2014)

Hercules, the summer action vehicle for pro wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson, is an easy movie to dismiss. Aside from being released during a quiet period in the summer movie season, the marketing for the film is misleading. The trailers lead you to believe the film is akin to Clash of the Titans (an egregious example is a scene... Continue Reading →
