  • Copshop

    Copshop

    ★★★½

    Joe Carnahan's filmography has been a mixed bag, to say the least, but I'm happy to report that Copshop is definitely on the positive side of his slate of directorial efforts, and is a very fun time. This feels kind of like a film that would've come out in the 80s or 90s and star Sylvester Stallone or Jean-Claude Van Damme, and I mean that in the best way possible. It's great to see these types of films still getting…

  • Cry Macho

    Cry Macho

    ★★★½

    Cry Macho is a very laid-back, low-stakes effort from Clint Eastwood, and yet another good film in his legendary filmography. It's predictable, and Eastwood's famous "one take for each scene" tactic is a little obvious at times, with a few awkward line readings here and there, but past that, there's really not a whole lot I can complain about with this one, it does exactly what it needs to do. I was surprised with how engaged I was, and the…

    Prisoners of the Ghostland

    ★★★

    While I do think a collaboration between Sion Sono and Nicolas Cage should be a bit better than what we got here, I can still say that I enjoyed Prisoners of the Ghostland overall, and I think there's a lot to really like here. Sono's outlandish insanity perfectly compliments Nicolas Cage's more eccentric side of acting and makes for some pretty wild moments throughout in a world that is so stylish and odd that I was weirdly sucked in by…

  • Malignant

    Malignant

    ★★★½

    Not without its flaws, but Malignant is a pretty good time with some awesome gore, really fun concepts, and a very satisfying third act. It leans hard into camp and fuses that quite well with the definite Giallo influences. Annabelle Wallis turns in a great performance and James Wan's assured direction keeps this machine moving in a compelling and fun way. It has some lulls and the plot itself can stumble a bit up to the third act, but I had a pretty good time with this one regardless. Not Wan's finest film but possibly his most unique.
    GRADE: B

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★★½

    Buckle up, folks. This is going to be a long one.

    Just when I thought Marvel might've been going a step too far in extending its Infinity Saga post-Endgame, Jon Watts delivers one of the best films in the MCU to date. Spider-Man: Far from Home is everything I could've asked for, as an enormous Spidey fan and as a fan of good movies. This is probably the most fun I've had at the movies all year, and it's probably…
