Review: Wicked Little Letters

A neat little story that delivered more than advertised. Set in the 1920s, a English seaside town is emotionally rattled by obscene, profanity-riddled letters written and posted by an anonymous individual. A unorthodox investigation begins to track down the culprit. It is like 1920s social media! Directed by Thea Sharrock, director of television’s The Hollow…

Review: Ghostbusters – Frozen Empire

Sony might be getting the hang of this whole “Ghostbusters” thing.

But an ancient evil stirs, and all of the Ghostbusters need to rally against it…

Review: Asteroid City

It is always nice to experience a director’s distinct style, even when the film is quite bonkers. Asteroid City is a play written about a widower and his family travelling to an isolated town in the desert to take part in a science stargazing event. But events certainly take a turn for the weird. Directed…

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Review: Renfield

You thought vampires were done? Apparently not! Decades after their fateful meeting, Robert M. Renfield is still an immortal familiar of Count Dracula.
