Movie Review: Overboard (1987)

Source The plot of the original Overboard makes me uncomfortable because of the unethical misogyny. A man takes in a woman who has lost her memory and tricks her into being the perfect housewife. If you like cheesy 80's comedies and you can overlook this flaw, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have enough charisma and chemistry to... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Choose or Die (2022)

Source I've seen enough of these curse game movies to have low expectations of the genre. However, I was pleasantly surprised by Choose or Die. While it may not leave a lasting impression, it isn't the worst way to spend two hours. I honestly believe it to be one of the better films in the genre.  Choose... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: The Northman (2022)

Source I was not expecting a fantasy adventure from The Northman, but I am not one to complain as I have been starving for a good fantasy. From the trailers, this seemed like another revenge action movie only with a Viking skin, but I was surprised that there was a bit more depth to it. The Northman is essentially Hamlet adapted...

Movie Review: Last Holiday (2006)

Source Queen Latifah proves once again that she can be good in anything. This isn't a very good movie, but I can't deny that her performance gives this movie its life. I liked it when I watched it long ago, but watching it again came with the uncomfortable realization that Last Holiday has not aged well. It... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Don’t Get Caught (2018)

Don't Get Caught is an action stoner comedy that you haven't heard of for good reason. This lazy and uninspired movie does not deserve your time. The acting is horrible, the editing is terrible, and there is no plot. You can find this movie free on YouTube, but it isn't worth the trouble. There is absolutely... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Once Bitten (1985)

Source I was unimpressed by Once Bitten. This comedy has not aged well. A lot of the jokes no longer land, making this movie feel as eternal as the life of the vampires in it. Once Bitten is an absurd and unstructured comedy that relies heavily on the absurdity of the narrative. You have a matron of vampires who... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Morbius (2022)

Source I had completely forgotten about this movie, and after watching this movie, I understand why. This unimpressive addition to the MCU should have been left as an uninspired pitch on the story board. This movie fails to set itself apart from any generic bargain bin action movie despite its fancy packaging. While the acting... Continue Reading →
