'Terminator: Dark Fate' Review


Dark Fate is the sixth Terminator film. It can't live up to the legacy of the terrific first two installments, but all in all, it's pretty decent. My review is up at Screen International.

My Interview With Ed Perkins, Director of 'Tell Me Who I Am'


Tell Me Who I Am is a Netflix documentary about Marcus and Alex Lewis, twin brothers who have lived extraordinary (and tragic) lives. I spoke to director Ed Perkins, who talks about making a film about abuse and recovery. It's live at MEL.

Some Thoughts on 'The Lighthouse'


For MEL, I wrote about The Lighthouse, one of my favorites of 2019. It's a horror movie, but it's also really funny. Hope you enjoy.

Some Thoughts on 'Living With Yourself'


I wrote about Paul Rudd, clones, regret, "Give It to Me Baby" and Living With Yourself for MEL.

'Black and Blue' Review


Black and Blue is a good ol' fashioned, meat-and-potatoes action-thriller about a good cop (Naomie Harris) who's trying to stay alive after running afoul of some criminals and crooked policemen. The ambitions are modest, but the execution is solid. My review is up at Screen International.

Some Thoughts on 'Zombieland: Double Tap'


I enjoyed Zombieland. Was I pining for a second installment? No. For MEL, I wrote about the dangers of making sequels to so-called "cult classics." (I also talked about Twinkies and Donald Trump.) The whole thing is right here.

'Maleficent: Mistress of Evil' Review


Did anyone need a Maleficent sequel? Well, too bad, you're getting one anyway. I reviewed Mistress of Evil for Screen International.
