Mosul is a whirlwind of a movie anchored by legitimately visceral sequences throughout and brisk pacing that the film sustains from beginning to end. In an environment where streaming has become the predominant mode of consuming content, it’s gratifying to get a movie this immersive, one that never truly lets up and one that will […]

Tenet

Since for almost as long as Christopher Nolan has been making movies, time itself has been his greatest muse. From the fragmented narrative of Dunkirk to the gun re-entering Leonard’s hand in Memento as the film begins to travel backward (Big time inversion vibes there). Nolan is to time as Kubrick is to hubris and […]

Scoob!

The Scooby-Doo property has been around since 1969, but believe it or not, Scoob! is the first full-length, theatrically released animated feature to come out of this brand and it takes the Mystery Inc.’s members on a new, but not entirely satisfying path.

The Half of It

The Half of It is a deeply endearing teen rom-com that remains charming even when it struggles to break free of the timeworn trappings of its genre.

The Willoughbys

Netflix is in a really interesting position right now when it comes to where they are in the realm of animation. They haven’t had a Toy Story-level hit that changes everything yet, but are also still relatively new to the game. With Klaus and now this film, it feels as if Netflix, more than any […]

Inception

The greatest feat of Christopher Nolan’s 2010 film Inception is how it balances the elements of a blockbuster and an arthouse film. Inception has the charm of any heist film and plenty of well-constructed, exciting action setpieces bound to keep audiences entertained, but remedies that with a far more subtle and understated examination of the […]
