Review: On the Basis of Sex

Written by Aaron Radcliff: Biopics can be a tricky thing. If you decide to make it on someone not that interesting, finding enough things to focus on can be difficult. If you make it about someone larger than life, you run the risk of being overstuffed and convoluted (looking at you, Bohemian Rhapsody). What manages... Continue Reading →

Review: Escape Room

Written by Aaron Radcliff: With the beginning of a new year, everyone comes up with various resolutions that they inevitably fail. If Hollywood had a list of resolutions, I feel that one of them would be making better movies to come out in January. I get it. With everyone more concerned with catching up on... Continue Reading →

Review: Mary Poppins Returns

Maybe it's on account of the 54-year gap between the first Mary Poppins and the sequel, but whatever the reason, here... Continue Reading →

They aren’t going anywhere, and of all the... Continue Reading →

Review: The House That Jack Built

Written by Aaron Radcliff: When we last left Lars von Trier, he was continuing his legacy as a provocateur by following up his infamous Hitler comments with a five and a half hour-long uncut version of ‘Nymphomaniac.’ To some, von Trier is a boundary-pushing visionary who’s a bit of an acquired taste. For others, he’s... Continue Reading →

Written by Aaron Radcliff: In 2015, Ryan Coogler brought his second team-up with actor Michael B. Jordan for a Rocky spinoff that defied expectations and ended up being one of the best films of the year. Now, Steven Caple Jr. steps into the director's chair to give an updated look at one of the pinnacle moments in... Continue Reading →
