Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Review by Tim Nasson

The good news for Disney is that the majority of their films as of late make $1 billion worldwide, or more. The bad news for Disney is that Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (the sequel to 2014’s Maleficent, a spinoff of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty) lacks the Disney magic that seems to appear in most of their films, looks […]


Zombieland 2 Review by Tim Nasson

Growing up in the 1980s, without internet, without Netflix, without independent access to a video store’s collection of movies, (until I was about 16), there were a number of movies that I saw in theaters (I went to the movies alone at least twice a week beginning at 14) that were sequels without having seen […]

Gemini Man poster

Gemini Man Review by Tim Nasson

The best way to go into two-time Best Director Oscar winner Ang Lee’s Gemini Man is to leave any sense of reality you have at the door. Lee, whom I have interviewed twice, (Ride With The Devil and Brokeback Mountain), is one of the best directors ever. Period. While the story of Gemini Man, where an […]

The Addams Family 2019 movie poster

The Addams Family Review by Tim Nasson

The Addams Family debuted on television fifty-five years ago and ran for only two seasons. Nearly thirty years ago The Addams Family made their big screen debut. That live action film, directed by Barry Sonnenfeld (Men In Black), featured Angelica Huston and Raul Julia as Morticia and Gomez Addams. I was not a fan, at […]


Joker Review by Tim Nasson

The Joker debuted in DC Comics’s first issue of Batman in 1940, and since then in TV and movies he continually sparks iconic performances. Cesar Romero was the first human to portray him in the Batman TV show. Jack Nicholson was the first to grace the big screen as the Joker, and was robbed of an […]


Rambo: Last Blood Review by Tim Nasson

It has been thirty-seven years since Sylvester Stallone’s first Rambo film, First Blood, exploded onto the big screen. Since then, not only has Rambo (and Stallone) aged, he has gotten more creative when it comes to killing his enemies. When the series began in 1982, Stallone was 36. He is 73 today. Rambo: Last Blood, […]


Ad Astra Review by Tim Nasson

There has been a lot of talk during the past two weeks about how amazing 50 year old Jennifer Lopez looks in the movie Hustlers. There is no denying the fact that she is one of the most beautiful famous 50 year old women in the world. However, equal consideration needs to be given to […]


Hustlers Review by Tim Nasson

The STX Films publicity machine is in full force, getting (at least trying to get) trade publications and some critics to buy into the idea that Jennifer Lopez is Oscar worthy for her role in Hustlers, the true story of a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on […]

47 Meters Down: Uncaged

47 Meters Down: Uncaged Review

By: Dylan Tracy I don’t think I’m the first to admit that the world has had way too many shark related thrillers. So many, that most people don’t pay attention to new fare involving killer sharks due to the notion that it’ll be a “been there, done that” type film experience. I went into the world premiere […]

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie poster

Scary Stories to Tell In The Dark Review by Tim Nasson

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark originated as a series of three collections of short horror stories for children, written by Alvin Schwartz and originally illustrated by Stephen Gammell. The titles of the books are Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (1981), More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (1984), and Scary Stories […]


The Kitchen Review by Tim Nasson

If you walked into the movie The Kitchen not knowing anything about it you might think it is based on a true story. Starring Melissa McCarthy (Kathy), Tiffany Haddish (Ruby) and Elizabeth Moss (Claire) as newly minted mob wives, The Kitchen is an R-Rated descent into madness in 1978 and 1979 Hell’s Kitchen. For any […]


The Art of Racing in the Rain Review by Tim Nasson

The movie The Art of Racing in the Rain is based on the 2008 novel of the same name by Garth Stein and is the most schmaltzy movie of the summer, maybe the year. But don’t let that deter you. Sometimes, and in this case, schmaltz is good. Here we have a story, that barely deals […]


Once Upon A Time in Hollywood Review by Tim Nasson

Once Upon A Time in Hollywood is Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film and his best. It’s that good. And stay through the credits for a pleasant surprise. Pre-credits begin with a fictitious 1950s TV personality, Allen Kincaid (Spencer Garrett), doing an on camera interview with Leonardo DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton and his stuntman Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), with Dalton […]

The Lion King 2019 poster

The Lion King (2019) Review By Tim Nasson

In 1993, before the internet, you had to watch movie trailers in theaters. There was no way for most people to watch them over and over again. I attended at least 5 press screenings per week at the time and walked into whichever auditorium was showing trailer for the 1994 The Lion King at least 50 times […]

Devon Sawa

Devon Sawa Has Idle Hands No More

By Tim Nasson The first time I sat down with and interviewed Devon Sawa was exactly twenty years ago, a half a lifetime ago for the 41 year old actor, at the press junket in Los Angeles for the movie Idle Hands. In that film, a teenage slacker’s (Sawa’s) right hand becomes possessed with murderous […]

Toy Story 4 movie poster

Toy Story 4 Review by Tim Nasson

Simply put, Toy Story 4 is a solid follow up to the best in the Toy Story franchise, Toy Story 3, which was released in 2010 and which went on to become the highest grossing film in the series, ($415 million U.S). Toy Story 3  was the only film in the franchise to earn the coveted […]

Men in Black International movie poster

Men In Black International Review by Tim Nasson

Men In Black International is the fourth film in the big screen franchise that all began in 1997 with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the lead roles.  For the uninitiated, the Men In Black are in charge of monitoring all aliens who visit or move to Earth, using lethal force when necessary to keep the peace. […]

The Secret Life of Pets 2 movie poster

Secret Life of Pets 2 Review by Tim Nasson

The Secret Life of Pets was released in the summer of 2016 and has the distinction of being the highest grossing original film (opening weekend) of all time, with $104,352,905. Many stars of the original return to the 86 minute The Secret Life of Pets 2 to lend their voices to the pets, including Kevin Hart […]

Late Night - Poster

Late Night Review by Tim Nasson

By Tim Nasson In the movie Late Night, from the failing movie studio Amazon Studios, Oscar winner Emma Thompson plays, to put it mildly, a late night talk show host who just may be network TV’s nastiest bitch. She is such a bitch that she has never learned her writer’s names, and refers to them […]


Aladdin (2019) Review by Tim Nasson

When a movie studio knows that the live action remake they are spending hundreds of millions of dollars on can’t improve on the original, the logical question is why would they waste their time making it? Disney has fumbled more times than not when it comes to the quality of their live action remakes, compared […]

Avengers Endgame Sells 40 Million Tickets in U.S First Three Days in Theaters

By now, you’ve heard that Avengers: Endgame earned over $356 million at the U.S. box office during its first three full days in theaters, and a total of over $1.2 billion, worldwide in the same time frame. What movie studios fail to do is report tickets sold. They love seeing box office records broken. However, […]

Blinded by the Light Review by Tim Nasson

Blinded by the Light, a film that does more than just incorporate the songs of Bruce Springsteen into its docudrama screenplay, has more in common with last year’s musical smash Bohemian Rhapsody, based on the life of Freddie Mercury, than it does with this year’s fantasy docudrama Rocketman, which is based on the life of […]
