Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
An exceptional conclusion to one of the best modern super hero trilogies, complete with crowd pleasing action, comedy, and some surprising brutality.
Beau is Afraid – REVIEW
An insanely twisted and imaginative journey through regret, guilt and anxiety that leads to an audacious, and a times nonsensical, final product.
Evil Dead Rise – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
A fun sequel that makes up for its conventional approach and reliance on callbacks with an engaging cast, a claustrophobic setting, and a healthy amount of disgusting gore.
Renfield – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
A campy horror comedy that may fumble its many genres and stories, but lends itself to occassional comical gore and humorous banter.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
Narratively generic and paper thin, this film will most likely satisfy younger audiences and diehard fans while leaving everyone else feeling nothing.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
A fun, swashbuckling adventure led by charasmatic performances and mostly well-constructed visuals.
John Wick: Chapter 4 – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
A triumph of action cinema, delivering incredibly hard-hitting and impressively choreographed fight sequences while giving a bit of depth to a rather one note character.
Scream 6 – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
A tired rehash of a classic that struggles to find reason to exist.
Cocaine Bear – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
A goofy throwback to B-movie camp that feels disappointingly restrained for a movie about a large animal high on drugs.
