Dumbo (2019) Review by Tim Nasson

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 […]

The Prodigy movie poster

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 […]

Glass movie poster

Glass Review by Dylan Tracy

Believe it or not, Glass is a film that has taken nineteen years to complete. It is the film that connects the worlds of Unbreakable and Split in a two-hour epic finale (or beginning?), and brings the characters David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), and “The Hoard” (James McAvoy’s many characters he […]

The Upside movie poster

The Upside Review by Tim Nasson

Academy Award nominee Bryan Cranston (Trumbo), Kevin Hart, and Academy Award Winner Nicole Kidman (The Hours) come together in the long delayed The Updside, a remake of the international blockbuster 2011 French film The Intouchables. Directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionist, Limitless), The Upside chronicles the unexpected friendship between Phillip Lacasse (Cranston), a Park Avenue […]

Ralph Breaks the Internet Wreck-It Ralph 2 movie poster

Ralph Breaks the Internet Review by Dylan Tracy

Ralph Breaks the Internet Mixes Family Fun With Social Satire In a world filled with wonder and knowledge at our fingertips, it’s arguably one of the greatest inventions ever known to man. It’s a vast wonderland of fun, shopping, personality and image enhancement, and even money making that we can’t seem to get enough of. […]

Green Book movie poster

Green Book Review by Tim Nasson

Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali Achieve Onscreen Magic in Green Book The movie Green Book, which takes its title from the book of the same name, “a travel guide to safe lodging, dining and business options for the Negro,” during the era of segregation and Jim Crow laws, is set against the backdrop of a country […]

A Private War movie poster

A Private War Review by Dylan Tracy

Rosamund Pike Brings Attention to the Frontlines in A Private War According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, 45 journalists have been killed delivering the news to the world. Before hearing about the film A Private War, I had never once heard the name Marie Colvin before. Now I’m an avid news follower, and a woman […]

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Review by Dylan Tracy

J.K. Rowling’s Magical World Prevails in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald On November 16, 2001, J.K. Rowling’s written masterpiece Harry Potter graced the big screen for the first time, opening the floodgate for a roughly $6.5 billion dollar on-screen franchise. Now, exactly seventeen years later, her magical world is still at large with the release of Fantastic […]

Halloween (2018) movie poster

Halloween 2018 Review by Tim Nasson

Halloween 2018 Review: Michael Meyers Is Back For More Blood It’s hard to believe that the movie H20, the 20th anniversary sequel to the seminal 1978 horror movie Halloween, is 20 years old. I interviewed its stars, Jamie Lee Curtis and Josh Hartnett (who played her son) and thought to myself, why did the studio […]

First Man movie poster

First Man Review by Tim Nasson

First Man is Dramatically Dull But Viscerally Stunning Let me make one thing clear, OK, two. First, Ryan Gosling is a great actor. I have found him to be one of the greatest living actors working since the movie The Notebook was released in 2004. Of course, he started out acting as a kid on […]

A Star is Born movie poster

A Star Is Born (2018) Review by Dylan Tracy

Bradley Cooper sings “Tell me something good…” and boy do I have something good to tell you about A Star Is Born. I’ll admit, I have not seen any of the previous three A Star Is Born films, so I do not have anything to compare this film to. A Star Is Born has been towards the top of my […]

A Simple Favor poster

A Simple Favor Review by Tim Nasson

Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively Steal A Simple Favor The movie A Simple Favor, directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), isn’t as funny as you might imagine it would be given its impressive cast of comedic actors – Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, Henry Golding (the breakout Eurasian star of Crazy Rich Asians), Andrew Rannels, Jean Smart […]

Lizzie movie poster

Lizzie Review By Tim Nasson

Lizzie Borden had an axe She gave her mother 40 whacks When she saw what she had done She gave her father 41 Do you remember that rhyme from childhood? I watched a screener of the new movie, Lizzie, courtesy of Roadside Attractions, at home. When the movie began, one of my friends whom I was […]

Searching movie poster

Searching Review by Tim Nasson

Searching Is One of This Year’s Best Films At first glance, especially taking a look at the poster and trailer of the movie Searching, you might think that it is just another low budget, B-movie thriller, reminiscent of the recent films Friend Request, Unfriended and Unfriended: Dark Web, which feature a bunch of unknown teens getting […]

Christopher Robin movie poster 2

Christopher Robin Review by Tim Nasson

The retirement of one’s childhood, and graduation into adolescence and ultimately adulthood, is one of life’s most unsettling events. Stuffed animals and other assorted toys and memories are boxed away and forgotten. First love takes precedence over everything else for many. And then work and family, but mostly work, occupies much of the brain, sometimes […]

Mission Impossible Fallout poster

Mission Impossible: Fallout Review by Dylan Tracy

Tom Cruise is a genuine bad ass who is sure to make you sweat bullets, pop an Ambien, and have a full fledged heart attack, all in the span of two and a half hours in Mission Impossible: Fallout. Just when you think Cruise has done it all with his death defying stunts, you are […]

Mamma Mia Here We Go Again poster

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again Review by Tim Nasson

If you’re a fan of either The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel or its sequel, and/or the original Mamma Mia, chances are you will be enthralled with Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, which was written and directed by Ol Parker (writer and director of both Marigold Hotel films). This film even includes in its plot a […]

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Review by Dylan Tracy

Sure to be the biggest theatrical release this summer, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom delivers dinosaurs, explosions, and the beginning of a new age of Jurassic. With throwbacks to the original 1993 Jurassic Park (the original Jurassic Park Jeep Wrangler, Dr. John Hammond’s amber cane, and the return of Ian Malcom (Jeff Goldblum)) and touching on aspects of the […]

Blockers movie poster

Blockers Review by Tim Nasson

In the movie Blockers, when three parents stumble upon their daughters’ pact to lose their virginity at prom, who have created a ‘sex pact,’ they launch a covert one-night operation to stop the teens from sealing the deal. Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz and John Cena team up as the three parents in Blockers, the directorial […]

Ready Player One poster

Ready Player One Review by Dylan Tracy

The movie Ready Player One, directed by Oscar winner Steven Spielberg, is set in the year 2045 and focuses on Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) as he escapes reality through the virtual world of the OASIS. Upon his death, the creator of the OASIS left his fortune and control of the OASIS to whoever could find […]

Love Simon poster

Love, Simon Review by Dylan Tracy

Love, Simon was a movie I was very much looking forward to seeing since hearing of its release. The film focuses on 17-year-old Simon Spiers, a closeted gay teenager who is navigating the process of coming out. It’s the first major Hollywood film to address coming to terms with one’s homosexuality in the high school […]

The Zookeeper's Wife poster

The Zookeeper’s Wife Review by Dylan Tracy

The unspeakable horrors of the Holocaust continue to be the topic of films decades after the event took place. However despite its age as an event in history, many stories of courage in such a frightening time continue to come to light, making for some of the best films. It is also a constant reminder […]

Beauty And The Beast 2017 poster

Beauty and the Beast (2017) Review by Dylan Tracy

The live action version of the tale as old as time has been on my watch list ever since news first broke of its creation. I mean, Emma Watson starring as Belle (totally fitting character for her to play), Josh Gad as LeFou, the anticipation of how Disney will make this version stand alone from […]

Split movie poster

Split Review by Dylan Tracy

I’ll admit right off the bat, I am not a big M. Night Shyamalan fan. He hasn’t had a film that has caught my attention since The Sixth Sense in 1999, and in my opinion hasn’t had a hit film since then. Yet he still churns out bomb after bomb, despite much negative criticism of his films. […]

la_la_land_ver3

La La Land Movie Review by Dylan Tracy

La La Land Delivers Shining Performances…But Dull Story Los Angeles. An almost other-worldly location where entertainment and talent run the city. A place where thousands of people from all over the world come to showcase their talents in the hopes of one day making it big. A place where traveling ten miles by car can […]
