A tired rehash of a classic that struggles to find reason to exist.
The Academy Awards 2023 – PREDICTIONS & COCKTAIL!
My picks and predictions for the 2023 Academy Awards, along with an Oscar themed cocktail!
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.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
A new low for the MCU, burdened by an uninteresting story, lazy writing, inconsistent visuals, and an unclear direction for the billion dollar franchise.
Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
A cheap, uninspired slasher banking off of the cheap thrill of seeing your childhood icons kill uninteresting characters.
Knock at the Cabin – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
A decent apocalyptic thriller bolstered by its performances and set-up that unfortunately fails to capture the emotional weight and allegorical nature of its source material.
Infinity Pool – REVIEW & COCKTAIL
A viscerally unnerving film that blends sci-fi with social commentary to create a disturbing, if not familiar, tale about privilege.
Missing – REVIEW
A compelling mystery that’s only slightly held back by its gimmick.
Skinamarink – REVIEW
A homemade horror film that captures the frightening dread of childhood, but struggles to remain engaging throughout its slow and abstract story.
M3gan – REVIEW
A horror film who’s self-awareness leads to to some humorous moments, yet lacks substantial terror to make impactful scares.
