Fatman | Movie Review

Fatman is a wickedly fun entry in the Christmas movie genre. A spoiled kid named Billy (Chance Hurstfield) hires a hitman (a deliciously twisted Walton Goggins) to off Santa (a perfectly cast Mel Gibson) after Billy receives a box of coal on Christmas. What ensues is violent, gory, and darkly comedic. This was a refreshing… Continue reading Fatman | Movie Review

Unhinged | Movie Review

I went into Unhinged assuming I’d have a fun time with a decent action/thriller, and the movie actually surpassed my expectations a little.

First Man (2018) – Movie Review

First Man is the fourth directorial effort from Damien Chazelle (Whiplash, La La Land), and it's a powerful, if flawed, biopic about Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling). This film chronicles the life of Armstrong from when he first became an astronaut through to his landing on the moon. This is a handsome movie, with beautiful cinematography and stunning… Continue reading First Man (2018) – Movie Review

A Star is Born (2018) Movie Review

The latest iteration (the fourth, to be exact) of A Star is Born is deftly helmed by star Bradley Cooper and features knockout performances by both him and co-star Lady Gaga. Their chemistry is palpable and feels natural, which adds to the authentic atmosphere of the film. The plot follows Ally (Gaga), a waitress who… Continue reading A Star is Born (2018) Movie Review
