BlacKkKlansman - Review

Image
BlacKkKlansman is the newest Spike Lee Joint, and it is a return to form for the acclaimed director. It is a sad time that we live in, when this film is more culturally relevant than it should be. The true story is told effectively, and it really should make you uncomfortable.

There will be a few spoilers throughout.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Review

Image
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is definitely the weirdest titled movie I have watched this year. It was a predictable romantic story, but the journey was still enjoyable. As far as Netflix Original Films go, it was one of the better ones.

As always, there will be some minor spoilers peppered throughout.

Christopher Robin - Review

Image
Disney has been on a role with their live action remakes of their animated classics. The latest is Christopher Robin which is essentially Hook with Winnie the Pooh instead of Peter Pan. The first two acts of the movie work incredibly well, then it loses its balance in the third act shift only to regain composure shortly thereafter.

There will be a few spoilers throughout this review.

Like Father - Review

Image
The newest Netflix Original movie is much better than the last one. But the films couldn't be more different. Like Father is a character piece - and a commercial for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines at the same time. The end game is predictable, but the journeys that both of the characters go on are satisfactory.

There will be small spoilers throughout.

Extinction - Review

Image
I love original science fiction stories. I also love the easy medium that Netflix provides in order to view original science fiction stories. Extinction is the latest Netflix Original Film, and while the premise is intriguing, its the execution of it that makes the movie problematic.

There will be a spoilers throughout.
