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) 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 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 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 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 […]

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.

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 […]

Dumbo (2019) Review by Tim Nasson

Walt Disney’s 1941 animated classic, Dumbo, has the distinction of being the shortest feature length Disney film of all time, clocking in at a mere 64 minutes. Yes, audiences paid full price for admission to the one hour film up until its final theatrical rerelease in 1976, which I remember vividly, even though I was […]

Oscars ‘honest posters’ for 2019 are more brutal than ever

The Shiznit‘s annual takedown of all the films in contention for Oscars doesn’t disappoint, and this year’s selection is no different. Controversial Best Picture nominees Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book are featured, of course. The former hints at the sexual allegations made against the film’s original director, Bryan Singer, while the recent news surrounding Green […]

The Prodigy Review by Dylan Tracy

Let’s face it; in this day and age it takes a lot to create a good scary movie. We have been so spoiled by the genius of Stephen King (think The Shining, Misery and It), Stanley Kubrick, and Alfred Hitchcock that a scary movie in today’s world really has to go above and beyond. Many […]
