Black Adam: Don’t even bother

Can you smell what the Rock is cooking? If it’s an anti-hero superhero movie for the struggling DC Universe? Then it’s a steaming turd burger covered in cliché sauce and too much exposition! Johnson wants to be the next Ahnold … Continue reading

Bob’s Burgers the Movie: Must See!

I’m putting this movie ahead of my stalled queue entailing all the crap I’m behind on, it’s a short list since Covid and money kept me from hitting Alamo very much in 2021. Bob’s Burgers the Movie will probably be … Continue reading

Jungle Cruise: If there’s nothing better on

You’re free to see this painfully mediocre fare on Disney+ nowadays. We went during my last birthday weekend (2021) and it was my inaugural experience with Alamo Drafthouse’s family friendlier (but to me bro’ friendlier) rival Flix Brewhouse in Round Rock. Much … Continue reading

Seeing Red: Must See

Rather bummed that Disney didn’t have the confidence to release this semi-original idea in theaters exclusively as they do with the MCU stuff. It was stronger than Luca (the Little Italian Mermaid) and about on par with Inside/Out or Soul, the last two near-perfect movies … Continue reading

Black Widow: Worth Seeing (MCU Recap 2)

I wanted to see this movie not to just be an MCU completist (I’ve only missed one MCU movie in a theater) but as a show of support to Scarlett. The actress was a trooper in a male-dominated genre and … Continue reading

The Sparks Brothers: Must See*

* – If you love music in any capacity, you better see this. Otherwise, the rest of the world can wait until streaming services carry it. Despite this documentary being a huge love letter to one of greatest duos in … Continue reading

Happy 81st Birthday Bugs Bunny

 After I saw how horrendous this movie probably is, thank you Honest Trailers for saying what we are all thinking, I do owe it to Bugs Bunny to watch. I actually went to the first Space Jam on opening night 25 … Continue reading

Luca: Streaming at best

Maybe Pixar is stuck in a pattern of great movie followed by mediocre movie, repeat. Currently, it would go: Coco, Incredibles 2, Toy Story 4, Onward, Soul and Luca. If I chose to go back farther, my hypothesis would have more interruptions of … Continue reading

Yellow Rose: Worth Seeing

Alamo Drafthouse is back…sort of. They have social distancing protocols in place which lets you enjoy what makes them special yet it was rather weird, and a bummer. Jennifer really wanted to see this movie while I wanted to get … Continue reading

Onward: Streaming at best

One upside the Pandemic has given us, Disney moving this mediocre Pixar movie to Disney+ since movie theaters are shuttered indefinitely. I was glad because I saved money, Alamo isn’t cheap when anything doesn’t deliver. The first warning sign I … Continue reading

The Invisible Man (2020): Worth Seeing

Another reason why I’m glad Universal’s Dark Universe (aka, “re-imagining” their monster properties) crashed harder than Windows CE. Their 1999 take on The Mummy was still good. It didn’t need Tom Cruise repeating his Mission: Impossible crap and then meeting Mr. Hyde to set … Continue reading

Knives Out: Must See

If this is Daniel Craig’s post-Bond career move, I am looking forward to the next installment by Writer-Director Rian Johnson. Benoit Blanc is part Foghorn Leghorn, part Clouseau encased in the dedication of Poirot. The short version of Knives is what … Continue reading

The Rise of Skywalker: Must see!

We’re finally out of Spoilers territory so I can blather my two cents. I also caught Rise at Alamo Drafthouse three times to make sure how I felt about it. First time during the special Thursday night screenings (due to my … Continue reading

Ford v. Ferrai: Worth Seeing

Hard to believe they made an American movie about auto racing that didn’t stoop to NASSCARR “Dads.” Thusly, I was actually interested in seeing it because Le Mans was the contest, a very historic track in France which isn’t an … Continue reading

Joker: Worth Seeing

I ran out of true Horror movies to review for this October but given how the last couple years have been a shit show under Orange Foolius, I think this interpretation fits the bill. In short, I liked it immensely … Continue reading
