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 […]

Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog fails to evoke the propulsive rush of its source material. There’s so much possibility in translating this character and the mythology he brings with him to the big screen.

Just Mercy stays fairly true to its source material save for a few notable changes that shift the path the film ends up taking.
