Review: MARY POPPINS RETURNS

Review: MARY POPPINS RETURNS

By Josh Muchly I saw what I needed to see in the first half hour Upshot: “In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she […]

Review: HOLMES & WATSON

Review: HOLMES & WATSON

By Josh Muchly Perhaps I’m just a John C. Reilly stan. Upshot: A comedic take on the adventures of Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson. Rundown: It would be disingenuous of me to say this film is “so bad its good.” Not only is that a cop-out, it’s simply not true in my estimation. Some of it is actually bad: […]

Review: STAN & OLLIE

Review: STAN & OLLIE

By Josh Muchly You don’t watch a movie like this for the twists and turns; you watch for the magic. And it’s magical indeed. Upshot: A story centering on Laurel and Hardy’s UK farewell tour in the early 1950s, an adaptation of a book by A.J. Marriot. High-point: Steve Coogan, hands down. You’ll be blown away […]

Review: CAT STICKS from the Sundance Film Festival

By Josh Muchly Upshot: Premiering at this year’s Sundance, CAT STICKS is a black and white film from India, the singular film from that country at the annual festival. Based in Calcutta and presented in Hindi, first-time writer/ director Ronny Sen centers the film on people towards the fringes of society — due to unfortunate happenstance […]

Review: Oscar-nominated COLD WAR

By Josh Muchly Upshot: Two artists, Zula (Joanna Kulig) and Wiktor ( Tomasz Kot) fall in love in communist Poland post-WWII. However, their yearning for one another, their artistic endeavors and, indeed, their very survival keep them from a lasting union even as their fates continue to intertwine. Rundown: Though the most talked-about foreign film in this awards […]

Stream-In: a review of OCEAN’S EIGHT (2018)

By Josh Muchly They made a list and checked it twice, but didn’t reward the good girls and boys for watching. Upshot: Ocean’s Eight centers on Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), Danny Ocean’s never-before-mentioned sister as she corrals an all-female crew to attempt a heist at New York City’s Met Gala. Ultimately, the film is about as […]

THE RED PILL Delves Into the Men’s Rights Movement

by Josh Muchly “If men have all the power, why can’t they talk about their problems?” Have you ever thought the Men’s Rights Movement might actually have some validity? Have you been warned of its “toxic appeal?” That it’s a hate group? Have you ever even heard of it? I imagine most people haven’t. Truthfully, […]

Movie Review – Five Dances

by William Eamon Workman I’ve been trying to find a gay film for my movie review but, whether it’s because that’s not my thing or because they really were just awful, I’ve hated every one that I watched.  That is until I came across the movie Five Dances.  It’s actually a really adorable love story. […]

Movie Review – The Last Summer of La Boyita

by William Eamon Workman I hope that you love understated foreign films as much as I do because I’m about to rave over yet another one.  In my opinion, The Last Summer of La Boyita is one of the best “transgender” movies I’ve seen yet.  I put transgender in quotations because it’s not quite that […]

Movie Review – Girltrash: All Night Long

By William Eamon Workman Wanting to watch something just for fun I decided on Girltrash: All Night Long.  I was expecting it to be silly, but I had no idea I was about to get the government cheese of all cheesy movies!  It’s an indie, rock-pop musical… yeah. I almost stopped watching it within the […]
